You might have to consider changing your bottom bracket for one with a longer shaft. Examine your chain line and do some research here:http://www.parktool.com/ and also here:http://sheldonbrown.com/gearing/index.html

OK, for a beginner in the world of 18 speed bikes, put the chain on the big sprocket up front, it should be about 46 teeth, make sure it is center and doesn't make noise, if it does, adjust it just a hair either way, now, the rear, put the chain on the big sprocket in the rear, make sure the front didn't start making noise, if it did, adjust it again. You are now ready to take off, in low gear, as you start out, it is easy to pedal, soon you will be peddling air, shift into second gear in the rear only, don't touch the front. Just a little push with the thumb will make it shift, now were going faster, easy peddling, shift into 3rd, then 4th, etc, coming to a stop, down shift the back sprocket back into low gear (big sprocket) and be ready to take off again. Soon you will be shifting that thing like a Ferrari! The front sprocket, will be used for moderate terrain, wheelies, and mountain climbing, that will come later, learn how to shift the rear first. As each gear climaxes, hit the shifter, it will get smoother as you go, and keep the chain quiet, no climbing on the next sprocket or falling out of gear. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: cannot adjust the tension on
I have the same problem with a schwinn 202 that someone gave to me because the resistance adjustment no longer worked. They were advised by Schwinn that the motor needed replacement, but after testing mine, the problem seems to be a lack of power from the computer to the motor. Schwinn tech support will get a call from me tomorrow.
