The most common fix for the wheels sliding off track is to clean off the lubrication along the rails and then reapply a small amount back to the rails.

The main problem is usually over lubrication.
This is just a quick troubleshooting step and we hope it helps :)

You may be able to reset the main board by detaching the ribbon connector, then reattaching it. Unscrew the four screws that hold the display panel, and you will see a ribbon connector and a round connector. Gently squeeze the tab in the center of the ribbon connector and pull it off. Wait a couple of minutes, then reattach the connector by gently pushing it into the socket. The display should show a boot-up process and then the normal blank screen with the prompt to select user. If the E2 error returns, repeat the process. If this procedure does not reset the board, you will need to contact Schwinn about possibly replacing the board. You can contact them by going to Schwinn.com (http://www.schwinnfitness.com/schwinn_fitness_us/customerservice.jsp) and select the "email us" link or call the 800 number.

Check power problems if the console on the elliptical machine does not light up. Make sure that the plug for the machine is secure in the outlet. If it is plugged in, ensure that the outlet is receiving power. Check the breaker to make sure it has not tripped off.
Be sure that you are using the correct adapter that came with the elliptical machine. Because different adapters are able to handle differing amounts of energy, the wrong adapter will not transfer electricity like it should. If the adapter is pinched or damaged, this could also alter its effectiveness.

2 Make sure the correct adapter is being used if the resistance settings seem to be too hard or too easy. If the correct adapter is being used, reset the machine. To reset the machine, either switch the "On/Off" button or unplug the machine from the wall. Doing this will allow the device to reset itself to the default resistance. Turn on or plug the device back into the wall and retry all of the levels of resistanc

please read the instruction and fix it. God bless you

Check your owner's manual for diagrams and definitions. You'll need this information when you put the elliptical back together. You'll also want definitions in case you need to call the customer support line for assistance.
Be aware that the resistance is often the part that requires repair. Resistance is managed magnetically, so often if the machine is working, but the resistance isn't setting correctly or at all, check the bolts that secure the magnets. If they are loose, the resistance will slip. If the bolts are fine, check the magnets themselves by using a refrigerator magnet and see if it is attracted or repelled by the your fridge magnet. If not, the magnets have de-magnetized and need to be replaced.Test with the magnet from a refrigerator, If the magnet attract and repulse, is o.k If not replace the magnet.1_21_2013_5_29_53_pm.gif
