Question about Schwinn Original Airdyne
The nut is loose enough so I can turn it with my hand, but it does not seem to be engaging the threads at all. I keep turning it and it never makes any progress moving up the threads to come off.

You wil need a couple of special tools, or be fairly creative with the tools you have.
to assemble, reverse above procedure, insuring bearing play is minimalized.
Hope this helps.

Send me your email address & I will send you a copy of the airdyne manual I scanned. It is a pdf copy which has description and instructions for your Airdyne computer. It has automatic (scans all features) and manual (stays on the 2 items you select in the display windows)and tells you how to change from manual to automatic and how to operate the computer.

Your computer's pickup magnet pickup sensor is not reading the magnet as you spin the bike. You probably have too much of a gap in between the magnet sensor and the magnet on your bike. Gently push the metal bracket holding your magnet sensora bit to close the gap and it should then read your magnet, calculate RPMs etc. Terpcafe@yahoo.com

I would take it in for service and let the professionals give it a tune up. You have a very good machine and I am sure that it needs to have the bottom bracket tightened and lubed. We have sold over 5000 Schwinn Air Dynes since 1981 and they are always worth fixing. So give it some love and it will be with you forever. Doctors and sports teams love these machines because it has a measured workload and they can write a program for you. We sell lots of excercise machines, treadmills etc but the Schwinn Air Dyne is the best of all of them.

There is a metal shim needed in the bike/pedal that has to be tapped in to keep the pedal tight. If you dad has used the bike for several hundred miles and/or his feet might actually bend the pedals over time (weight), it is possible the metal piece that the pedal attaches to could become bent slightly, and I have seen a few bikes, that need to be taken to the bike repair store (call a large bicycle/itness store) that has a good repair shop and they often can repair these, but rarely less than $125 for an Airdyne repair/tuneup.
