SOURCE: error code 1 on schwinn elliptical 418

E1 error seems to indicate that the servo which controls the elliptical resistance is stuck. Here is how I fixed this (without using a "crank puller", which would be quicker by far).

You will need a very short phillips screw driver (snub nose), a long phillips screw driver, an allen key set, and crescent wrench.

- Remove the batteries from the unit.
- Remove the screws from the plastic housing (with the long phillips screw driver) on the left side. Do not forget the phillips screws at the front - they are smaller screws so don't mix them with the others. This will allow the plastic housing to flex and move around, but not come entirely off.
- Using the crescent wrench, remove the nut holding the left pedal to the crank. Carefully note the order of the washers on the crank attachment.
- Using the allen key, remove the little pedal attachment piece on the left crank arm.
- Using the short phillips screw driver, carefully reach inside the plastic housing on the top and remove the four screws holding the plastic plate on the outside of the fly wheel/crank. You will need to rotate the crank wheel to reach each of the four screws in turn on the inside of the case.
- Pull off the plastic cover for the wheel.
- Reinsert batteries and gently help the revealed cable (bottom) retract the magnet plate. In my case, the servo worked fine again after helping it retract the magnet plate that was somehow stuck/wedged.

Reverse steps to re-assemble.

The computer on my schwin 418 eliptical does not work. Is there something I can do to fix it myself? Where can I get it serviced?


Call Schwinn customer service (actually Nautilus) at 1-800-nautilus if it is broken so you can order a new one or they will send you a new one if you are under warranty. They are very helpful. You can also check the power connection on the bottom or make sure the wire harness in the main pipe in the center is properly connected if the system is brand new and not working.

Hello there. Unfortunatley there is no way other than removing the crank arms. You do need to remove the nut on the axle and you will need a crank puller. The puller is available at any local bicycle shop for around 10-15 dollars.
Good Luck Tim
