Question about Schwinn Original Airdyne
I too bought an older Air-dyne that is far out of warranty, and I'd been having trouble with the ergonometer showing numbers all over the place, rather than a steady reading. Please note that doing any of the following adjustments yourself will void your Schwinn warranty if it still applies. The fan was way off center, so I adjusted it straight while I had the covers off to clean, oil and adjust the chains. I also thought having the numbers at least showing on the ergonometer was a good indication and started looking at the magnet and sensor on the right side of the wheel. I had noticed that the sensor mounting bracket was loose, so we'll start there with the repair steps:

Your computer's pickup magnet pickup sensor is not reading the magnet as you spin the bike. You probably have too much of a gap in between the magnet sensor and the magnet on your bike. Gently push the metal bracket holding your magnet sensora bit to close the gap and it should then read your magnet, calculate RPMs etc. Terpcafe@yahoo.com

Usually when the electronics on these devices dont work the problem can be two fold either they are completely damaged and in such situations they dont come on at all or they come on and dont register. Your situation is the latter.
This is a simple problem as the counting mechanism is simply the part to be checked. Usually there is a mechanisim located somewhere around the pedals which calculated the distance which has been done on the unit it is either this mechanism has fallen out of place thereby would need some adjustment or is completely spoilt in which case replacement is expected.
This should be refered to an expert who is profficient in this field and has the technical know how around the unit.
Hope this solution has been helpful?
