SOURCE: battery missing for exercise bike

I have a Schwinn airdyne (model AD-3) that uses a button type battery in the count-down timer, which is above the work load indicator or the 'speedometer'. According to the manual I was given with the bike, it utilizes a 1 1/2 volt watch - type battery (LR44, A 76 or equivalent).

Hope this helps.

Identifying Your Schwinn Airdyne


How To Identify the Model of a Schwinn Airdyne Exercise Bike

  • We'd like to share some characteristics of the Schwinn Airdyne bikes that can be used to help you identify the model of your Airdyne bike.

What size/type fan does it have? Is it a spoke fan like a bicycle wheel or short wide blade fan?

Does your Airdyne bike have two chains or a chain and a belt?

  • AD3, AD4 bikes have two chains.
  • AD Pro/Comp and AD Evolution Pro/Comp bikes have a chain and a belt.

How do the crank arms attach to the Airdyne, by wedge pin or bolt?

  • AD3, AD4 and certain AD Pro/Comp crank arms attach by wedge pin.
  • Certain AD Pro/Comp bikes have crank arms that attach by bolt.
  • AD Evolution Pro/Comp bikes have crank arms that attach by bolt.

Squeaking belt on airdyne bike


I love my Schwinn Evo Comp AirDyne. After 2 years it suddenly developed a bad squeak and about .5" of increased play in the pedals (ie the pedal could rotate back and forth about .5" before turning the fan). Both these symptoms were caused by a broken spring in the chain tensioner. (Schwinn pn 13000371. See part 80 in blowup 5 of http://www.fitnessrepairparts.com/diagram/114 ~$9).
To replace this:
  1. disconnect the right hand (as you sit on it) connecting arm (ie the piece that connects the pedal to the big handle) from the lever arm (ie the big handle you pull back and forth) by removing the connecting bolt with an Allen head wrench and an adjustable wrench. Note the order of the three internal washers as you remove the connecting bolt. Rotate the connecting arm towards the back of the bike to get it out of the way.
  2. remove the four phillips head bolts that hold down large right hand plastic cover. With the connecting arm out of the way this cover can be pulled far enough out to gain access to the chain tensioner.
  3. remove the broken spring and replace it. I fashioned a similar spring with less tension which seems to work as a kluge. The original spring broke at the outermost loop, so I might have been able to reuse it by just bending down another loop.
  4. could lube the chain while you are in there, but you can also lube it anytime from the other side
  5. put it all back together

I have an old Airdyne, probably 20-25 years old. I don't have the owner's manual any longer. All I want to know is what the rate of energy (calorie) expenditure is at each level on the speedometer. I've...


Stationary bikes provide a no impact workout because your feet never leave the bike pedals. This is preferable if you have back or joint problems that cannot tolerate repeated jarring of high impact exercises.

Stationary biking can burn 315 to 466 calories when done vigorously. This is a great exercise especially if you are trying to lose weight. You'll burn more calories in less time compared to other cardio exercises like high impact aerobics. You'll never burn this amount of calories while playing.

Had a service call 7 months ago on 16 year old Maytag Stack w/d to lubricate drum roller that was squeaking. Squeak has returned. Any pointers on lubricating it myself, or is it worth replacing the drum...


Lubricating the bearings is usually only a temporary "quike fix".

Replace the bearings,and lubricate the bearing shafts with a lithium grease.

I have a 1988 YZ 250 dirtbike and it is really hard to start, and fouls spark plugs all the time.


You need one or two heat range higher plugs. This happens to older bikes. Yours is more than 20 years old. Make sure you are using the proper lubricants for your motorcycle. Best advice comes from your Yamaha dealer. Make sure to tell them you have an older motorcycle.

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.

When should I lubricate the final drive?


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand, re-lubrication would depend on how often the bike is used as well as distance traveled. Normal usage would require at least once a year. Of course when greasing the driveshaft, might as well change/fill differential oil. Not really that difficult, other than the 8 bolts on the differential, the challenge is fitting back in the driveshaft to the gearbox output spline.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
