Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the exercise cycle. The handlebars should be secured with a push nut. It does look like there is a washer between the bushing and the push nut. If the push nuts were defective or not pushed on all the way on, it could have come off. I recommend putting the handlebars back on. Then put the push nuts back on. If you do not have to use a hammer to tap the push nuts on, they should be replaced. The parts can be ordered from our parts website: Sears Parts Direct .

I hope this is helpful.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Hello Mark--thank you for yur suggestion to keep handlebars from slipping off the bushing . I resecured the nut as you suggested. Still slipping. I did not see any washer, and there were no parts left over. If the is a slight "bow" to the left hand bar that connects the pedal to the handlebar, could that cause the problem? Also when I wiggle the lefthand handlebar it has a lot of play in it; wheras the right hand handlebar is a snug as it should be. Thanks for thinking about this problem. Pat

If the handlebars will not stay on after following the instructions, I suspect there is a problem with the nut, shaft, or the bushings. I recommend having a service tech come out and repair the problem. If the product is new, there should not be any charge. The link below will take you to a website to set up service. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Thanks, Mark, for your answer. This cycle was given to me by my brother--it was in the original box, an by the looks of the box, this has been around for some time. However, as it was gifted to me, I can't be choosey, right? Well, bottom line, I can't affor a service call, and I know it wouldn't be covered because the cycle is old and out of warranty; and my brother does not have any receipt. So, I will follow up and have a friend look at the nuts, shaft and bushings. Thank you for your help. Pat
