18 gears on bike, 1-6 ok hi to low faulty ie 2,.3 ok is get down to 1 witch is the lowest will not go all the time

Gday thisis usually an easy fix.

firstly i would clean and lubricate the derailuers (sounds like the front one is the problem) then once its clean and moving freely set the rear derailuer into gear 3 or 4 and the fromt derailuer into the middle cog (ie the chain should be on those cogs) then adjust your cable to remove slacknes but not so tight as to move the derailuers. Hopefully this will solve your problem
Good Luck.

Poulan pro front wheel drive 22 inch mower. With height adjuster set to highest level, right front wheel keeps slipping out of the adjuster notch. Is there an adjustment screw somewhere?

Is the height adjuster tight on both sides? if loose the bolt holes may be elongated, both sides set the same? any wheel wobble indicating worn out wheels?.if it checks out as good put the machine an a known hard level surface such as a garage floor and check the clearance by turning the wheels by hand without putting pressure on them, If the wheel still slips the mowing deck may be warped or bent. if all wheels are original there shouldn`t be a question of mismatched wheels ie:different sizes.

3rd Di2 install and first 2 worked perfectly. On this bike when on big ring big cassette (23) get pretty good chain rub on front derailuer. Have tried setting tail of derailuer in more than usual and...

Derailleurs are mass-produced and are essentially identical to each other, so unless damaged it's unlikely to be the derailleur. A sticky cable could keep the derailleur from trimming properly. It also can lead you to think it's tight enough when it is not. Otherwise it's hard to diagnose remotely. Derailleur must be both at proper angle and height to shift well, cable both move freely and be at proper "tension."

Hello there! My mom just bought me a $300 Schwinn Melee from a Fred meyers in Newport Oregon. Beautiful Bike However there wasn't any instructions about the Shimano gear shifters. I'm doing something...

first identify the problen is it front or rear derailuer.secondly bike shop mechanic hate cheap mass produced bikes because they do not sell them
so lets solve your problem,okay sometimes this can be an adjustment if its bunching on front then first read your owners manual to see which gears are compatible,sometimes it will suggest not using certain gears,secondly if yhe chain has fallen off and got jammed it may be bent and need replaced visually confirm if the chain is straight.okay if it is not the chain then the length and length adjustment can be changed using the adjustment on the rear derailuer look and you will see 3 screws located on it the two with L /H are for adjusting the gear stops l is for low gears,so it does not go too far and wedge between the gear and spokes,H is for the small gear(high)if it goes past and falls off adjust this one.lastly the one located at the very rear adjusts chain tension the loosening of this one will relax the chain and apply more chain on the gears   tightening of this one will tighten the chain,adjusted properly your chain should not bow down over adjustment will cause chain if there is too much slack in the cable that is adjusted by the adjusters on the ends of the cable where it meets the shifters,learning to adjust your bike will save you a lot of money in the long run.
hope this helps
