I'm not sure about your model crank but many have "autoextractors", that is a collar around the crank fixing bolt that the bolt pushes against as you remove it. Typically the bolt will loosen a turn or so then get tight again as it comes up against the collar. Keep turning the bolt and it will pull the crank off the spindle.
