Mine went dead last Spring. I ordered a replacement part from Fitness Quest. I think the link is above. Actually, while I was waiting for the part, I reconnected all the wires on the whole bike and the panel worked. So I actually have an extra new working panel if Fitness Quest doesn't have the part for some reason and u want mine. Double check ALL the connections of the wires first. They come loose easily.

My bike kept giving me a "low battery" message, so I wired in one more c-cell battry (for a total of five batteries instead of four), and voila! It works fine now. I was worried the extra voltage might harm the mechanism or the computer but it works fine.

How importance of Heart-Rate Monitor on a spin bike?


The high-quality exercise bikes are best for having a chest strap since they do not hinder the movement while exercising. It is inconvenient when the users will touch the contact monitor; it will start gauging their heart rate. Using a standalone heart-rate monitor will be handy in this point of view.Click the link for more info Best Exercise Bike

Is there a heart rate monitor on exercise bikes?


Most of the exercise bikes come in three flavors. Either they have no heart rate monitor at all or a pulse grip heart rate on the mid-level bikes or a wireless heart rate on the top exercise bikes.

I got onthe bike today and it had quit working --the moniter comes on but none of the control buttons do anything it just flashes the manual contol on the left side of the screen -- it had been working...


I have the same problem and called fitnessquest. They said the monitor is probably bad and they don't have any in stock because it is being discontinued. The customer service person told me to buy a used bike somewhere and use the monitor from it. Not alot of help.

I have an Edge 491 Exercise bike and the control


Take a look at the battery compartment under the panel (left looking up). I had a similar problem and had just fixed it. Hopefully you can get the same results.
If the strip of metal with the spring is corroded, take the batteries out, and carefully remove the metal strip. I used metal duct tape and wrapped the piece of metal with the tape. Carefully put a slight bend in the middle of the strip and reinsert the strip. If the batteries do not connect up, bend the piece a bit more or add more of the metal duct tape. After doing this, the panel came back to life. If this is not your problem, then my apologies. If it is, then good luck.

Tension


The new and improved exercise bikes have what is called magnetic resistance. This is where your resitance is created by a magnet and some sort of power source such as batteries or your bike being plugged into a wall outlet. If you are using batteries replace them. I found that with my elyptical exerciser new batteries made a world of difference in the resistance settings. Make sure the batteries are strong ones. If changing the batteries doesn't help then there may be another problem. This could be the computer or a magnetic part. These parts are usually replaceable through the manufacturer. Just check your user manual and I am sure you can get it replaced. I hope this has been helpful.

The tension on the recumbent exercise bike does not get hard


If your bike has magnetic resistance and you changed the batteries this should make your tension work properly. Since it did not I believe that there are magnets somewhere on your bike that are wearing out. Or it could be a computer part. Your manual should tell what part you need to order and replace. I hope this information has been helpful.

Also make sure the batteries that you put in your bike are really new ones. Sometimes you can purchase new batteries at a store and they are actually a little weak. I had this problem with an elyptical trainer and I went and got other batteries and this fixed the problem.

The monitor on the EDGE 482U Upright Bike does not work. The only buttons that work are enter and recovery.


I contacted their customer support after putting the bike together two times. There was no indication in the manual that there was a motor inside the base. Customer support offered to replace the motor. I am returning it to the store for a refund.
