Likely the excitation to the alternator in this recumbent bike has dropped out, but there may be other causes.

You might start with this reference, which is how to access the various components:

SOURCE: Generator will not generate electricity.

I assume it is a hand start genset. The most common problem if it has been sat for a while is rust on the ignition timing flywheel. If you take the pullcord housing off (recoil) then you will see a big flywheel with what can only be described as a big forked prong with a couple of wires on it. This flywheel should be stainless steel and rusts when sat around for a while without use. Its job is to complete the circuit to the spark plug every time the flywheel passes the forked prong at a given spot on the flywheel, the faster the wheel turns the faster the spark hence the engine runs quicker. Clean the rust off with a releasing agent (wd 40) hey presto!!!!!!!!!!!

Get Life Fitness 9700 generation treadmill through doorway

You need to remove the upper console arms/assembly - unbolt the five or six large bolts holding the frame to the base (you will need to remove the motor hood) and unplug the cable from the circuit board that goes up inside the arm to the console (make sure the power is unplugged!) use a 3/4'' ring spanner or socket.
