follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

Plug it in. The first troubleshooting step is always the most obvious. Your elliptical machine needs to be plugged in for the console to work. Ensure that the plug is securely placed into a grounded outlet and that the outlet is receiving power. Check that the circuit breaker has not been tripped.


  • 2 Reposition your hands on the handles. If your machine's monitor is not showing your heart rate, first reposition your hands so that you are touching the metal contacts. If necessary, clean the handles with a soft cloth to remove sweat or lotion residue. Do not grip the handles too tightly or move your hands excessively.

    Calibrate the ramp. If the ramp is not positioned correctly, it could need to be calibrated. Often this is done from the console. How you calibrate the ramp is dependent on the make and model of the machine. Refer to the owner's manual or customer service section of the manufacturer's website to find out how to reach the calibration settings on your specific machine. Many companies offer manuals in PDF format for download on their websites.

    Adjust the drive belt. Again, your specific make and model of machine will determine how you do this. Usually, you'll need to unplug the machine and locate the drive belt area. This is often beneath the panel housing the wheel and pulley. You may need to find a release latch or use a screwdriver to remove this cover. Refer to the owner's manual for your model to make sure you do not damage your machine.

    Hi drlinders,

      You could hardly find any expert who deals with all this. More likely, you would not be able to find any information in outer world ( Internet ) regarding the same.
     The best advise would be to purchase a new one.A new wide ride pedal would cost you  $32.99.You can purchase it from amazon.com
    http://www.amazon.com/Schwinn-Wide-Ride-Pedal-2-inch/dp/B000F5NKZM

    Even if you contact the schwinn, more likely this would be the same advise from them.
     I know its really frustrating, but it seems to be the best solution at this moment.
    Thanks for using Fixya.

    Our Schwinn 130 worked fine for a year then the resistance setting got stuck. We took it apart and found that the bolt that holds the magnet arm was too tight and preventing it from moving it to the highest resistance setting. We loosened the bolt a bit and added some WD40 and it works great now.

    Perhaps. Google (schwinn)(230)(manual) without parens OR contact Schwinn directly to request it.

    Generally, the L5 error indicates that the controller circuit is not receiving any data feed from the speed sensor of your treadmill.

    When you start the treadmill (that has a L5 error), it will start briefly and then stop. It stops due to a built-in safety feature i.e. no speed data = stop motor.

    To fix this issue:
    Remove the motor cover, the speed sensor is located near the small wheel that has the small belt that connects with the roller. The sensor is a little (usually black) tube like thing.

    In 90% of the cases, the sensor position has shifted (usually happens if you're not too careful when removing or fitting the motor cover). The sensor position is sensitive with respect to the two magnets embedded amongst the spokes of the small wheel (see photo).

    In some treadmills, the sensor is fitted parallel to the wheel while in others, it is fitted perpendicular to the wheel.

    All you have to do is move the sensor a tiny bit to the front (or back) and restart the treadmill. If this did not work try to reposition again (see attached photo). Depending on how far the sensor shifted from its correct position, it might take a few tries before you get it right. You know you've got it right when the treadmill once again functions normally.

    In 10% of the cases, the sensor wire might have either got disconnected or broken (usually happens if you're not too careful when removing or fitting the motor cover). If you are a DIY kind of person and have a soldering kit handy, then you will know what to do else, call the technician - shouldn't take more than 15 minutes to fix it.

    Hope this helped.
