Stamina R360s UP/DOWN magnetic restistance buttons not working

I have used this product aprroximately 10 times. The up/down resistance buttons aren't working. I've checked the plug and replaced the batters with no luck. Unfortunately, it is set at a very high resistance right now, so it's uncomfortable for me to use. Is there any way to manually adjust the resistance?

Mine did the same thing.. unhook the plugs that are under the seat running from the handles and touch a screwdriver to two of the prongs on either side of the plug and it will engage the button for you on which ever side you do it.. the up or down side

    The above statement is confusing. There are two plugs under the seat. unplug them and you will see four terminals on each plug. Two terminals are for the pulse monitor and two are for the up or down button depending on which side you're working on. My down button was inop. I used and ohm meter to determine that the switch/button had an open circuit and needed to be replaced. You need to be a bit mechanically inclined to replace the switch, assuming you can find one. I'm researching that now and will update when I find one. As stated above, if you touch a screwdriver on the two up or down terminals the motor should move and pull or release the cable going to the magnetic portion the bike. (be sure your batteries are good).

I had the same problem. after disassembling the entire bike and reassembling it, I noticed every time I pushed one of the up down buttons the LCD got dimmer. ===>
REPLACE THE 4 AA BATTERIES! Why this problem isn't in the owner's manual, IDK!

I have a Stamina 4700R magnetic resistance recumbant bike. I'm looking for a place or website to buy plastic caps for the feet, a manual, and possibly the Stamina In touch fitness monitor. Where can I...


This is the main SITE for your unit, yet it appears to be an older unit, you can browse thru and maybe you'll find something similar to what you have and use that manual instead of the one you have. It probably won't be very much different from yours. As for parts, there are links on the page to find what you need.
Hope this is of help, Please rate and comment, Thank You

Fixya does not sell replacement pedal straps and would not know of sources.
For a manual, try Googling (stamina)(R360s)(manual) without parens.

Stamina 15-1306 is not recording time, miles, calories, etc. Brand new.


The magnet located inside the right lower cover, which is attached to sensor wire needs adjusted. Just move it a little closer to Large sprocket which turns with the chain. Worked for me.

I just tried my Stamina e-1000 eliptical for the first time. The electronic monitor comes on but doesn't do anything. It just reads zero. Any suggestion? Thank you.


Check the upper console to see if you have a loose connections and one of them is the speed sensor connection , if all connections are good then it looks like the sensor itself inside the main casing by the flywheel

I need the wheel bearing assembly for a Stamina bike model 890.


If your mechanically incline, Pull out old wheel bearing, if still in half way good condition, take to bike/auto shop see if they can find suitable replacement or rebuild the bearing it self. make sure when putting back in to use very good grease. I have same problem, since I can't find parts, those would be the best possible solutions.

I need a manual on my stamina r360 recumbent bike how to clear the settings on the in touch monitor


If this is the same Stamina R360 as I have, you just hold down the orange oval button (labeled: MODE) until you hear a beep. This resets the readings.
