Question about Fitness Quest Edge 482U Upright Exercise Bike

2 Answers

The tension on my Edge 491 doesn't change. It is extremely difficult to pedal and even if you move the fitness levels down or up, the tension remains the same. We changed the batteries and it still remained the same. Any ideas of what we can do to get this tension adjusted.

I have the edge 329u with the same problem. After taking the sides off to expose the fly wheel I found that the cable that adjusts the tension on the magnet was broken. Now the problem I have is finding a new adjustment cable. If anyone knows where i can buy one let me know.

There's a belt and tension wheel that adjusts the tension inside the body of the bike. The adjuster moves the wheel and magnet closer together, for more tension, or further apart to for less. You would need to open it up to see exactly what is happening when you adjust but the problem has to be with this.

Pushing material away, but still overlocking


It is difficult to tell what exactly is happening with your serger.

First thing--make sure you RAISE the presser foot BEFORE you thread any of the threads. This releases the tension disks so the threads will seat properly. You may need to remove all the threads and rethread from the beginning, making sure you thread each in the proper order. Start out with the thread tensions set at the ideal setting--usually the halfway point between the high & low numbers. From there, you will adjust them to even up the thread tensions.

Are you actually trimming off some of the fabric as it is stitching? If so, you might try increasing the cutting width (moves the cutting edge further toward the right) so that there is more fabric caught within the looper threads. It also appears that the looper tensions may be too loose. Try tightening the upper and lower looper tensions so less of the thread loops don't fall off the fabric's raw edge.

New Home ss2015 machine. I am having trouble with the thread tension. I have loops on the bottom. I have cleaned the bobbin case, changed the needle, re-threaded and moved the upper tension all the way up....


try adjusting the top tension to 3 & if it doesn't stop the looping, try 4 but I wouldn't go any higher than 5,, if changing the top tension doesn't help then I suggest taking the machine in to have it serviced. the bottom tension is more difficult to do,, it's also very possible that the top tension dial is messed up & needs replacing. only a sewing machine shop can tell for sure.

2004 range rover serpentine belt replacement


There are 2 belts on the vehicle. It is EXTREMELY crirical to make sure you make a diagram of exact path of belt through the pulleys before removing it. If you dont, You will find it difficult if not impossible to figure it out after the fact. If you place it back wrong and it manged to fit severe engine damage could occur.
Standard procedure for any vehicle is to release tension on the tensioner pulley first'
This is accomplished by releasing tension on the pulley it is spring loaded and will release by placing the appropriate socket on the
pully and turning to release tension. (This can be difficult secondary to inadequate clearance. Lisle tools makes a tensioner pulley tool that I consider absolutely necessary.) then slip the belt off while maintaining force to keep tension off. release tension on tensioner again for clearance make sure belt is aligned properly on all pulleys befor you close the hood(bonnet).

My Pro-Form 490 LE has a resistance problem--it won't adjust and it seems to be set on a difficult resistance, I can't really pedal it. how do I fix this? I tried switching the levels, but it doesn't...


Open the rear part where the "guts" are. The magnet will be stuck against the wheel that turns when you pedal because the cable that the resistance motor pulls to remove the tension will have too much slack in it. The cable probably came off of the pulley wheel that is used to providing the necessary tension to pull the magnet off of the wheel.

To get the case off, simply unhook the right side pedal, remove the 4 bolts holding on the crank thing to remove it, then using a philips head screwdriver, remove the screws in the screw holes on the case cover. Be sure to remove the one screw on the other side near the front in order to allow the front part to "unsnap".

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.

I need a diagram to show where the clutch pedal spring fits on a 53 focus.the top bit is obvious but i cant find where the bottom hook fits ---.frosty


The clutch pedal return spring fits onto the cicular pressed steel ring that surrounds the clutch linkage. There is a tiny hole on the top edge of the steel pressing. Difficult to see and best found by feeling around top edge but take care as pressed steel has sharp edges.

Edge 491 exercise bike monitor panel dead


http://www.academy.com/images/pdf/Fitness_Quest/Edge_Recumbent_Bike_491r.pdf

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.
