The error 1 message indicates the motor that turns the rotor stopped during a regeneration. The things that can cause this in order of most likely to least likely are:

Motor inoperative

Wiring harness or connection to position switch

Position switch

Face plate

If the rotor seal wears and makes the rotor too hard to turn, it can cause the motor to stall and the faceplate will display err 1.
