Resistance levels will not change


If you have a bike with a flywheel, with no electrical components. You probably just have an issue where you have old worn out brake pads and must replace these.

If you have any other complex bike it could be one of many things, it would really be helpful if we could get a model and serial number from you for a better answer.

If you want, you can directly contact our Technical Support Team by chat at www.sportsmith.net or by phone at 888-713-2880 and we would be happy to help you figure things out! Hope this helps :)

Why is the the resistance on my sole e55 remaining easy to spin regardless of which resistance setting I select?


Belt could have come off. if the belt did break or come of it would be very easy to spin pedals. Flywheel ( brake ) could have jammed up. Loosen the covers and look for the brake cable that's connected to the resistance motor. Then run the resistance up to 20. If cable feels loose , the brake is stuck. Sometimes you can pull on the cable and it will free it up.

Be aware that the resistance is often the part that requires repair. Resistance is managed magnetically, so often if the machine is working, but the resistance isn't setting correctly or at all, check the bolts that secure the magnets. If they are loose, the resistance will slip. If the bolts are fine, check the magnets themselves by using a refrigerator magnet and see if it is attracted or repelled by the your fridge magnet. If not, the magnets have de-magnetized and need to be replaced.

My Proform 100 ZLX Exercycle is stuck in low/zero pedal resistance, and doesn't respond to console settings. Can this be economically fixed?

see the steps and fix it. God bless you
Adjust the magnet with bolt attached there are loose, tight very well and ready the resistance is the main parts that need repair,
However if the resistance is faulty, you must test again the magnet from the refrigerator by attracting or repeled, if do not pass this test replace it buying small cheaping from home depot or similar.

  • 3 Consider that if the foot pedals are attached with bolts, any slipping can be fixed with a quick use of the wrench. But if the foot pedals are damaged or breaking, order new foot pedals (see Resources below) rather than run the risk of a pedal breaking while you're on the machine.
  • 4 Check the hand bars. While not all people use them, as they can elevate your heart rate by up to 20 percent, they can become worn, too. While loose hand bars typically need a simple tightening of the bolt, be sure not to overtighten as the bolts can break.
  • 5 Know that if the axis is bent, it's likely you need a new machine. The axis is the central alignment of the elliptical. If the machine was used by a person who is over the maximum weight limit, it can be bent or damaged. It's not an easy fix and a better idea is to upgrade to a sturdier machine.

    Why does the resistance on my elliptical randomly go to OFF while working out


    Do this for your console Elliptical:Removethe bolts or screws securing the console to the upright assembly. Lift theconsole and confirm that the cable connections are secure. Remove the coverfrom the console's battery bay and install a fresh set of batteries. Replacethe battery cover.2
    Detachthe ends of the pedals from the crank axles. Remove the left and right discshields and side shields. Inspect the interior of the base unit and locate theflywheel.3
    Inspectthe flywheel as it turns. Locate the magnet installed on the flywheel. Turn theflywheel until the magnet passes in front of the nearby reed switch. Loosen thescrew securing the switch in place. Rotate the switch to reduce the gap betweenit and the magnet. Tighten the screw.4
    Replace the left and right disc shields and sideshields. Reattach the ends of the pedals to the crank axles

    Good luck, sincerely. G-d bless you.

    My schwinn 240 recumbent bike shows E-3 on console. the magnet is stuck to the flywheel and won't come off. i've tried adjusting the resistance on the console, unplugged the brake sensor cable, etc. how...


    Hello, do you have a manual or electric resistance control? The manual one has a return spring, the electric on has a resistance motor that could be bad.

    Resistance level does not change anymore. What is


    I fixed a problem with my Schwinn Elliptical 430 resistance level not working. When I would change the level anywhere from 1-16, I could hear the motor turning, but there was no change in resistance. If you hear the motor moving, then try this:

    Using a Phillips screwdriver, remove all the screws on the left side of the large plastic cover (left side if you are standing on the machine). When all screws are removed, you can pull the plastic cover off, and move it towards the back of the machine without having to disconnect any of the metal bars. (The bottom two screws are a little tricky to get off. Hold the housing in place, don't let it sag, in order to get them out.

    Look inside the unit and find the magnet, which is a rounded, brake-show like piece that is close to the flywheel, on the top half of the unit. There's a cable from the motor that goes upward and is attached to the magnet housing.

    If you try to adjust the resistance level now, you should see cable move up. This is supposed to allow the magnet to move closer to the flywheel and increase resistance. In my case, the magnet was stuck and wouldn't move upwards. When I gave the magnet a little push with a screwdriver, it popped up to where it should be.

    To solve this issue, you will need two wrenches. You must go to the opposite end of the magnet, towards the front of the machine, and you will see it's connected with a nut & bolt. Using a couple wrenches, hold the bolt, and loosen the nut about 1/4 turn.

    This should lessen the pressure on the magnet housing and allow it to move freely and not bind. Reassemble everything. Lie the elliptical down on it's side to allow the screws to fall into the holes easier.

    Once it's all back together, you should find that the resistance level works again!

    Installing Amature-Magneto


    The air gap for the magneto is .010 - ,014. A microfiche card, an index card, a common business card or anything NON-magnetic of the above thickness makes a good shim to achieve this gap.

    1. Remove the old ignition armature mounting screws. Then, disconnect the stop switch wire from the flywheel brake and remove the armature.
    2. Attach a replacement armature from the original engine manufacturer, using mounting screws. Then, push the armature away from the flywheel and tighten one screw.
    3. Turn the flywheel so the magnets are on the opposite side from the ignition armature.
    4. Place the appropriate shim between the rim of the flywheel and the ignition armature. While holding the shim, turn the flywheel until the magnets are directly adjacent to the armature.
    5. Loosen the tight screw so the magnets pull the ignition armature against the flywheel and shim. Then, tighten both mounting screws and rotate the flywheel until the shim slips free.
