Understanding how to repair a Schwinn 226 Recumbent Bike control panel does not take as much technical knowledge as you might think. The control panel on this model is basically a console that includes a digital display. Once the console starts working again, then you have successfully learned how to repair a Schwinn 226 Recumbent Bike control panel.
To complete this task, you will need:
- Schwinn 226 Recumbent Bike
- Microfiber cloth
- Electronics cleaner
- Adjust the viewing angle. If you can’t clearly see the screen of your Schwinn 226 Recumbent Bike, then you need to figure out how to repair the control panel. On this bike model, the control panel is tile-adjustable. Sunlight, artificial light or other conditions might make the screen difficult to read. Unscrew the knob connected to the control panel and tilt the console to an appropriate angle. Then, tighten the knob to secure the position.
- Clean the LCD screen. If tilting the console did not help you see the control panel clearly, cleaning the screen might help you repair the control panel. Wipe down the screen with a microfiber cloth only. A small amount of electronics cleaner can be used if that doesn’t do the trick.
- Reset the control panel to start a new workout. If you’re having trouble getting your settings right, you can start again by resetting your console. Go to “Program Mode” and press the “Reset” option. Hold it in for a few seconds to completely reset the settings. If the console works, then you learned how to repair a Schwinn 226 Recumbent Bike control panel.
- Change the measurement units. If your Schwinn 226 Recumbent Bike control panel is giving measurements in the Metric system, press the “Up” and “Down” button at the same time for a few seconds. The “Measurement” screen will appear. Select “English,” instead of “Metric” and press “Enter.”
Note that if you do not touch the console or enter anything into the control panel for a period of two minutes, it will automatically shut off. If this happens, you just need to turn it back on again.
