    Thanks Cindy - I need the AD3 for the ergomter etc. Different from the evolution which seems as far back as Schwinn goes :(

    Hi,
    Does anyone know what the ergometer dial indicates? The needle moves based on how hard you pedal but what is it measuring? And what does the load indicator measure and should it be reset?

Schwinn Fitness has many of their manuals here: http://www.schwinnfitness.com/schwinn_fitness_us/customerservice/manualsen.jsp . The direct link to the owner's manual for all Airdyne exercise bikes is available here: http://download.nautilus.com/supportdocs/OM/Schwinn/SCH_Airdyne_Evolution_OM_web.pdf . If you need the assembly directions, see the Airdyne AD4 guide: http://download.nautilus.com/supportdocs/AM/Schwinn/SCH.Airdyne.AD4.AM.EN.pdf . The AD3 and AD4 are very similar.

I hope this helps.

    I wish that I could be of more help then. The most I've seen on the ergometer is a few items on repairing an Airdyne. Cindy Wells

The analog speedometer shows:

>Work Load from .5 to 10 (some only go to 7) *
>Pedal RPM from 28 to 75 RPM
>Odometer
>Trip odometer with rotary knob on back to reset

The white numbers around the dial (from 1 to 10) are Load; the red numbers around the dial (from 28 to 75) are Pedal RPM (rounds per minute). There are two odometers: the Odometer on top (four white digits plus 1 black digit) measures total miles traveled on the machine. The odometer on the bottom (two white digits and 2 black digits) is a "trip odometer"-- you can reset this by turning the little knob on the back of the ergometer.

* Load: Level 1 = 50 watts, Level 2 = 100 watts, etc. It is a measure of the power you are producing at the moment; it changes based on the intensity of your workout. Load is also related to how many calories you are burning: Energy (kCal or "calories") = Av Power (Watts) x Duration (hours) x 3.6. Exercise equipment especially cardio equipment will often display this measurement. By maintaining a certain load level, you can work at a consistent level of intensity.

How to replace a chain with master link on a Schwinn Airdyne


Airdyne Chain Replacement with Master link

This video will demonstrate how to replace the chain with master link on a Schwinn Airdyne.
  • First remove the cotter pin and clevis pin from the user's right handlebar. Then lower the connecting arm and handlebar.
Caution: be sure to hold the handlebar as it will come loose after removal of the above parts.
  • Remove the connecting arm and pedal and crank arm by removing the wedge pin. To simplify this process loosen the nut and tap on it with a small hammer until the pin is loosened.
  • Remove the nut, wedge pin, crank arm and connecting arm.
  • Next remove the chain guard; there are three screws attaching it as shown in the video.
  • Remove the chain by locating the master link. Remove the lock pin and the cover, and then disconnect the chain.
  • Place the new chain on the sprockets as shown in the video.
  • Install the master link, cover and lock.
  • Re-install the chain guard and attaching screws.
  • Re-assemble the connecting arm to the handlebar and eccentric.
  • Be sure the brass bushing is installed in the front inner side of the connecting arm before installing the clevis pin and cotter pin.
  • Install the crank arm with pedal.
Be sure when completing this step that the crank arm is installed in the opposite position as the users left side crank arm.
  • Install the nut onto the wedge pin and tighten.
  • This completes the procedure.

Owner's manual for older Schwinn Airdyne


http://support.nautilus.com/support/schwinn/uprightbikes/prdcdovr~3550012/Schwinn+Airdyne+Exercise+Bike.jsp
Follow this link and you can download the owners manual as well as the exploded parts schematics. There will be information about the different years. other than the consoles they have remained the same for 20 + years. If you ever need to replace the bottom bearing be sure to get the lock ring as well. It changed from left hand thread to right. Thats it. You can also upgrade the console to the newer version. A little expensive but with proper care a 20 year old Airdyne will last till the frame rusts out from under it.
