Schwinn Parts

Exercise equipment like an elliptical or treadmill has many intricate moving parts. As a result, sometimes, these machines can malfunction or stop working altogether. Fortunately, many of these issues can be solved by repairing or replacing a part.

Common problems with Schwinn exercise equipment

  1. Your Schwinn elliptical console display is dim or won’t light up—Replace the battery first to see if this easily solves the problem. If not, then the whole console may need to be replaced.
  2. Your Schwinn exercise cycle isn't displaying your heart rate—First, check to see if the cable is firmly plugged in. Next, place your hands on the center of the sensors with equal pressure on both sides. If these tips don’t help, then the handlebars may need to be replaced.
  3. Your Schwinn treadmill has a walking belt that's slipping or appears off-center—If the walking belt is slipping, try adjusting the tension. If the belt appears off-center, make sure the machine is on a level surface. Next, realign the belt by adjusting the bolts at the rear of the machine. If the walking belt looks worn or damaged, then a belt replacement may be necessary.

Troubleshooting your Schwinn treadmill

The average lifespan of a treadmill is between seven and 12 years. Regular inspection and maintenance will likely keep your treadmill performing for much longer while neglect could shorten its lifespan.

Keep the console moisture-free and wipe it down after use. Dust can be detrimental to the life of a treadmill. For best results, keep the area around the treadmill clean. Inspect and tighten bolts and screws monthly. Also, lubricate the walking belt with silicone-based lubricant every three months or after every 25 hours of use.

If the treadmill will not turn on, make sure all plugs are firmly in place. Check if a breaker has tripped or if your power strip has been turned off. If necessary, make sure the wall outlet is working properly. Finally, inspect the power cord and look for cuts or kinks.
