It is very smooth,very stable and extremely well built.
Blue Boy
I called the customer service number and after being on hold for 45 minutes, the very polite rep told me to take it apart, check the cables.

I would recommend this to anyone looking for a quality elliptical without breaking the bank over it.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
NOTE: I originally reviewed this machine in December 2010. This revised review is being published in August 2011.

I am drastically revising my review of the Schwinn A40 Elliptical Trainer, which I originally rated with five stars, down to the lowest possible rating. Why, you ask? Simply because my machine suffered a major structural failure after only seven months of light usage. The shaft that attaches the right-hand pedal arm to the crank broke off where it was welded in place. I super-glued it back, but that repair lasted only about a week before it came off again. As much as I liked this machine at first (despite its initial "Pedal" error problem--see the "Comments" to this review), it is now useless to me except as a decorative fixture in my spare room until I can figure out how to dispose of it.

That this machine suffered a debilitating failure after such little use indicates to me that it is of very poor quality. I am neither a large nor heavy person (let's just say I weigh not much more than HALF of its specified weight limit of 275 pounds), and it rarely saw more than 20 minutes of use per day, six days a week. It should not have broken in such a major way. The fact that I got it free through the Vine program does not diminish my disappointment and frustration--if I had paid for it, I would be REALLY irritated.

I contacted Schwinn about this and got NO satisfaction whatsoever. Even though the Owner's Manual CLEARLY says the "frame," which is the part that broke, is warranted for two years, the Schwinn rep refused to honor the warranty and said I'd have to buy a new part. That's the worst kind of bait and switch in my book.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
First and foremost... how do I like the machine now that it is in one piece?

I love it! It's smooth, quiet, easy on the joints and simple to figure out. The machine feels completely stable, does not wobble and is quite sturdy. It gives me a ridiculous workout (I am panting right now) especially if I program it to the highest resistance, though I do give up pretty quick if I use it this way. What works best for me is the various "courses" which fluctuate the resistance so just when it gets too tough it begins stepping down and I am able to make it to my pre-programmed time.

Why is this the perfect machine for me? Well, when I used to go to the gym, this machine was my kryptonite. For some reason I was too uncoordinated to pull it off in public and always felt like once I got moving I was going to fly off due to lack of balance or ability to get all my appendages moving at the same time in the same pattern (it honestly felt like patting my head and rubbing my tummy). At home I don't care about the impending embarrassment which has allowed me to relax and really get to feeling comfortable. I no longer feel as though I am going to shoot off in some America's Funniest Home Video moment. However, it is important to note that the stride on this elliptical machine is a fixed 17 1/2" where the more expensive (and likely the ones at the gym) are 20"+. This may be a problem for some of you taller folks (I am 5'6") but it is perfect for me! I get the sense that this shorter stride length may be why I feel more comfortable on this machine.

This is one great machine. It is very smooth,very stable and extremely well built. It took me a little over two hours to assemble and the assembly directions are very clear and well labeled with one exception. In the assembly directions, it calls for six #B screws when it is obvious they meant #A screws because they were the only ones left in the assembly process. I was worried that I would not be able to assemble it without help but had no trouble assembling it myself. For the money, I don't believe you could get any better quality even in a more expensive machine. I have very bad knees but this workout actually helps them and gives me an excellent full body workout. I recommend the Schwinn A40 to anyone.

I ordered A40 through Amazon after reading mostly favorable reviews. The elliptical arrived well before the assured time. However, the box contained neither Instructions Manual nor the accessories (bolts and nuts)! Called Amazon, but they asked me to contact Schwinn. I then called Schwinn. They were professional and courteous, but the items took quite a few days (> 1 week)to arrive. The instructions were fairly linear and straightforward, but the holes on one side (left in our case)were not aligned and bolts didn't fit it. We called Schwinn again. They promptly sent what I asked for (new accessories and handle bar). Even the new ones didn't fit. Apparently, the defective one is some other bar on that side. But I am too tired to try again. I am using it as it is.

About the machine: It is disappointing. The strides are not long enough even for this 5' 6" tall person. The display is almost unreadable. The numbers are OK, but the words are too small to read. It definitely needs an adapter, although it can work with 4 DC batteries. We paid additional $23. The trainer is sturdy, but with squeaking noise (not in the area which has above noted problem!). We will continue to use it as it is too cumbersome and painful to re-pack it to the original packing level.

If I have to purchase again, I'd first try it in a retail store or a gym before ordering. I relied heavily on previous reviews and Schwinn's reputed name, and liked the "low" price. In this case, they didn't match up well.
