Schwinn 418 Computer does not come on.

Schwinn 418 does not power up. Batteries are new and read 6 volts at contacts in the computer. How can I test if it is the computer? I disconnected the computer and see the test button. I pressed it and get nothing.

My Schwinn 420 elliptical is not powering on. The breaker and outlet source are fine. When I plug the machine in nothing powers on. The console displays nothing, no lights, etc.

test the power cord plug, in another device and see if working

2) replace batteries if your system has( clean the contacts from oxide,corrosion with contacts cleaner) and try again when you have isolated the problem

God bless you

The batteries in my mother in laws Jet 3 are about 6 months old and charge up to nearly 13 volts,but the travel is now about one third the distance that it should travel bfore losing charge. what should...

If you have someone do a load test on her batteries I'm sure they will find one weak battery that does not stand up under the load. Make sure that the batteries are fully charged before they do the load test and if one or both of the batteries drop more than a volt and a half under load then they must be replaced Most batteries are under warranty for 6 months lets hope you made it under the wire. Now if Medicare paid for her chair then they will pay for a set of new batteries contact the provider where she got her chair for repair Hope this helps

What kind of disk batteries does the pulse meter use on the schwinn model dx900.

The computer on your Schwinn DX900 exercise bike uses one 1.5V AAA battery. In order to replace the battery, you'll need to:

1. unscrew the computer from the mount
2. gently disconnect the computer sensor wire from its socket
3. unscrew the back panel of the computer (four screws)
4. remove the old battery and install the new
5. repeat steps 1-3 in reverse order.

Good luck.

The computer on my schwin 418 eliptical does not work. Is there something I can do to fix it myself? Where can I get it serviced?

Call Schwinn customer service (actually Nautilus) at 1-800-nautilus if it is broken so you can order a new one or they will send you a new one if you are under warranty. They are very helpful. You can also check the power connection on the bottom or make sure the wire harness in the main pipe in the center is properly connected if the system is brand new and not working.

Ups only puts out 80 volts when power disconnects

These type of UPS's put out a simulated sine wave on battery power. When you test these with a regular voltmeter, it tries to read it as a pure "rounded" sinewave and will nearly always report 80 volts, instead of 120 volts. If you test it with a true RMS voltmeter you'll see that it is 120. Otherwise, these units are getting older and the batteries need to be replaced every 3-4 years. Here's a link to a replacement battery:
