On the bottom the bike frame their should be s# plate. If you need to replace the battery you need to: first remove the foot pedals,then side panels.

A 6v @ 2.5Ah battery should be in the frame p01001700030685.jpg
they sold run about $20.00 to $27.00 plus S/H

Yes you do have to take not one, but both sides off: First take off left and right pedals, a 14mm or 9 l16 end wrench will do the job. Then you will find specific holes where the screws that hold the side panels are I think they are # 15 or 20 torque ( star confiuration). This will expose the frame blow all the debris out. Last ,but not least you will locate the battery behind and below the alernator two phillips heads screw hold the 6v @ 2.5ah battery in place,then replace the the battery, and reassemble the unit. This sholud not take more than 30 min to do.

Usually a faulty lower circuit board - remove and replace or call a local service tech.

Life Fitness... | 371 views | 0 helpful votes

I am asuming you tested the drive motor, did any burning smell eminating from the motor? We do have a short in that board if that is still on your bench I would trace where those conponents are going to and use if you have a portable Dc power supply with voltage and current displays I would set power supply at a lower voltage ( 1v to 2v ) take grd lead to grd and use red for the purpose of isolating the short could be in the bank of IGBT's Caps shorted etc depending on location of damage.

You should check your battery-it must be putting out at least 6 volts to get the computer started up-depending on the era there will be a battery near the bottom frame-you will need to remove on of the side covers to reach it-

We had exactly the same thing. If you take the covers off you will find a black battery pack in the bottom. It is about the same size as a cordless drill battery. We got a replacement from Maplins - cost about £10. It works perfectly now.

You have to start pedaling to get it to start up, some times you have to pedal pretty fast to get it to start up

To start open the door at the bottom of the control panel and remove the 9V battery. Eventually replace it with a fresh batttery to reset the control board.

If that does not fix the problem the control assembly should be replaced, this is sold as a single part and is normally considered not serviceable at component level.

Change the battery. It is a 9v battery behind the small door on the back of the display panel.
