Question about Schwinn Cycling

Open Question

The resistance on my schwinn srb-1500 just stopped working. The bike is in perfect condition and the computer console seems to be working fine. (I've replaced the batteries) The tension appears to adjust on the screen, but nothing in the resistance with the pedals

SOURCE: The tension adjustment does not get difficult enough

If you are refering to a regular bicycle this means the derailer is not making the chain jump from gear to gear. You probably need a new shifter cable or the shifter cable came unhooked from the derailer. I would take your bike to a bike shop to have this reconnected and then they will adjust it for you.

If you are refering to an exercise bike then here may be your solution. From what I have seen on exercise bikes there are three different kind of bikes. I am refering to how there resistance works.

First type has a strap that wraps around the wheel. There is a some kind of a nut and a bolt that holds that strap around the wheel. You simply need to tighten that nut. The strap will stretch over time and that is why you do not have the same resisteace you had when the bike was new. Afer you tighten this you will find that regular tensioner works better.

The Second type of exercise bike has what appears to be brake pads contacting the wheel. Basically your peddaling the bike with the brakes on. Pretty simple concept. Again there should be some sort of adjustment around this pad that is touching the wheel. Probably a screw or a bolt. Some even have adjusters that you can turn with your fingers.

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. If changing the batteries doesn't help then there may be another problem. This could be the computer. Just check your user manual and I am sure you can get it replaced.

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.

SOURCE: No resistance when I pedal the stationary exercise bike

Hi,

I looked into this thinking is must be a simple belt, or tention wheel, but these devices are much more complex than the average exercise machine. See the Recumbent selection here.

It appears that the tentioning device is a magnetic brake.
This would require that it be plugged into a power source and programmed to provide a desired tention.
I've never used one of these so I can't say what kind of programming options there are or where they are found.

Hope this helps.
Richard.

Does the schwinn recumbent 270 bike have a battery? It has an AC adaptor. The resistance will not increase when i press the higher resistance button.


It does not have a battery. Your resistance motor is most likely faulty. The only thing is, with schwinn, you will most likely have to replace the resistance motor, the console, and the wiring. All of this is very hard to find and will probably be more of a hassle than it's worth.

Seem like you have a sensor problem. Open up the bike and check to see if your sensor is aligned properly. Check your sensor magnet. Get parts at www.treadmilldoctor.com or usedtreadmillrepairparts.com

Hello, do you have a manual or electric resistance control? The manual one has a return spring, the electric on has a resistance motor that could be bad.
