SOURCE: Cybex Recumbent bike has been pre-set to not exceed 30 minutes

This is from the owner's manual from a slightly different Cybex bike, but will probably be the same for yours. From the dormant mode (waiting for a user), enter Clear-7-5-0-Enter

Pause/End will reset to factory default (hold down for three seconds)
Level keys scroll forward or back in menu

Menu item 7 is "Max Time," set it to OFF

SOURCE: No resistance when I pedal the stationary exercise bike


I looked into this thinking is must be a simple belt, or tention wheel, but these devices are much more complex than the average exercise machine. See the Recumbent selection here.

It appears that the tentioning device is a magnetic brake.
This would require that it be plugged into a power source and programmed to provide a desired tention.
I've never used one of these so I can't say what kind of programming options there are or where they are found.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Scraping/Squeaking noise on recumbent stationary bicycle

There are most likely some sort of bearings inside the wheel hub that are causing this.

SOURCE: schwinn 201 recumbent bike makes clicking noise

Check the tightness of the crank bearings, also the crank fastening nuts (on axle) If its the gears you may have to turn the screws on the rear derailleur to adjust the tracking. The same as the front. Your question is kind of vague so its hard to pinpoint the clicking noise. Could even be a stone in the tire??lol

Petals turn freely with no resistance... is there a chain or belt?

if the pedals are direct to the wheel , there will be no chain
if the pedal arms are back from the wheel , it will be a chain which has probably broken or come off the cogs under the covers
The fix will be to remove the covers and see what has happened

Do both rear wheels have traction when your 4x4 is not engaged and if not then how does the 4wd work

independent 4x4 manages each wheel in turn applying power to the wheel with the most resistance and less power to wheels that have low road resistance, manual 4x4 has power to the differencials of the front and rear axals even if one wheel of each axal has no traction with a dif lock in place the wheels will keep turning. it can be that when a 4x4 is disengaged that the diferencial is no longer locked, then if one wheel has no traction the vehicle will stop moving and the power will got out through the wheel with least resistance and cause it to spin. also some vehicles have a limited slip differentical that has a small clutch plate build in the ensure that wheel spin is reduced.

How can I fix the slippage in my Schwinn 215 recumbent bike pedal?

Problem is in the back wheel or the "freewheel" The replacement of this part is recommended but it requires special tools. Take your bike to the local bike shop for this problem.

follow the instruction and fix it. God bless you
When a wheel speed sensor (WSS) fails or there's a problem in the sensor's wiring circuit, it usually disables the ABS system and causes the ABS warning light to come on. Loss of a wheel speed signal is a serious problem because the ABS module needs accurate input from all its sensors to determine whether or not a wheel is locking up. Without this vital information, the ABS system can't do its thing.
Wheel speed sensors produce an alternating current (AC) output voltage that varies in frequency and amplitude with wheel speed. The faster the wheel turns, the greater the frequency and amplitude of the sensor's output signal. The strength of the signal can be affected by resistance in the sensor, resistance in the wiring and connectors, metallic debris on the end of the sensor, and the air gap between the sensor and tone ring mounted on the axle, hub, brake rotor, drum or CV joint.
A narrow air gap is usually necessary to induce a strong signal in the sensor's magnetic windings. Air gaps typically range from .016 in. to as much as .050 in. (0.40 to 1.3 mm) depending on the application. If the ABS warning light is on and you find a code for a wheel speed sensor (and the sensor is adjustable), the problem may be nothing more than too wide an air gap. Use a brass or nonmagnetic feeler gauge set the gap to the factory recommended specs.
Variations in the air gap can also cause fluctuations in the sensor's output signal. These may be caused by bad wheel bearings or missing, broken or chipped teeth on a tone ring. Even minor damage to the tone ring that's nearly impossible to see can sometimes cause a problem. One equipment supplier makes a test bench with a magnetic pickup and oscilloscope to check tone rings on remanufactured FWD axle shafts. The setup simulates the signal produced in a wheel speed sensor. Tests have shown that a variation in height of only about .010 inch on a single tooth can cause a noticeable fluctuation in the sensor's output signal!
One way to check a suspicious wheel speed sensor is to measure its output voltage. One way to do this is to plug a breakout box into the ABS module's wiring harness and attach the test leads from a digital volt ohm meter (DVOM) to the appropriate pins for the WSS circuit.
A good wheel speed sensor will generally produce an alternating current (AC) voltage reading of 50 to 700 MV when the wheel is spun by hand at about one revolution per second. Refer to a shop manual for the sensor's exact voltage specifications.
A low voltage reading or no reading calls for a direct measurement of the resistance in the WSS circuit (with the key off). This should be done through the breakout box to check the entire circuit. A good wheel speed sensor and circuit will typically have a resistance of 800 to 1400 ohms (specs vary, so refer to a manual for the exact numbers).
If the sensor circuit has too much resistance, reads open or is shorted (little or no resistance), measure the resistance across the sensor itself. If the sensor itself reads within specs, the problem is in the wiring or connectors. If not, then you have identified a bad sensor that needs to be replaced.

Resistance on elliptical acting weird

1) tight the bolts tension for magnet and clean very well. and proof..if the fail
2) go to test the magnet, use again the magnet from your refrigerator magnet, for attraction and repulsion. If do not pass the TEST replace the magnet in any Hardware such home depot, etc.
God bless you
