Exercise Bike - Magnetic Resistance Failing

I have a 201 Schwinn Recumbent Exercise Bike, that I have been quite happy with for about 2 years now.

However, recently the resistance is failing - I believe it is a magnetic resistance system - and there is a slight difference between the weakest and hardest settings, but not like there should be.

Any help / suggestions, or even where I can find a repair manual?

    I have the same problem. I could not change the resistance, although it changed on it's own. I pressed the + and - resistance buttons together, and now it doesn't change at all. I assume I shorted something out.

The problem might be the gearbox. I know because I have the same problem.  Keys fitness is out of business, but "The Treadmill Doctor" has purchased the inventory of parts for the bikes. They will help you troubleshoot, and have parts available if you need them. The number is 1-888-340-0482. Or, you can go to treadmilldoctor.com.

I need an owners manual for a Schwinn Recumbent Model 230 exercise bike. On line manual isn't for the 230 that i have. Will you send me one please?


We don't send anything. We are FIXYA, we are not Schwinn.

There are 5 different 230 models depending on the year. The manuals are in this link.

I've had a Schwinn 270 recumbent bike for 4 years. The resistance is completely gone. Suggestions?


I suggest you check the troubleshooting guide in the manual, as there are several causes for the resistance not changing. http://download.nautilus.com/supportdocs/AM_OM/Schwinn/SCH.270-MY17.AM-OM-W.EN.pdf I would suspect that no resistance at all might have to do with a failure of the servo motor, which appears to control resistance through interaction with magnets on the wheel.

Secondly, you can try contacting Schwinn Fitness: Customer Service

If you still can't figure out the problem you may need in-person help. Find a place that sells Schwinn exercise bikes or see if someone at a local gym that has recumbents can help you. The bike is apparently made by Nautilus.

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.

Resistance settings not working on fitnex r70 magnetic resistance exercise bike


If this is a new bike that may be the way it is. If it worked differently in the past, you may be looking at a busted tension motor or faulty brake.

Schwinn 201 recumbent bike makes clicking noise


Check the tightness of the crank bearings, also the crank fastening nuts (on axle) If its the gears you may have to turn the screws on the rear derailleur to adjust the tracking. The same as the front. Your question is kind of vague so its hard to pinpoint the clicking noise. Could even be a stone in the tire??lol
