  • Plug-in or out the peloton cord.

After checking the power cord and brick, is the Peloton not turning on?

Maybe the issue is hidden in the power adapter.

At the base of the Peloton bike, there is a power adapter. This port connects the supply cord with your machine.

If the power adapter does not attach properly, the peloton bike won’t turn on. So make sure the cord is firmly attached. If not, pull it back and reconnect with the port or adapter.

Resistance Mechanism of the Peloton Bike

Now comes a complex method while your Peloton doesn’t turn on.

The resistance mechanism allows the cycle to rotate with adjustable intensity.

This part of the machine locates underneath the machine circle (where pedals are attached). There are multiple types of equipment that fit to proceed the resistance mechanism.

But you need to focus on its wire connection.

When you take a closer look, you will find different links with Peloton bike and bike +.

Peloton bike resistance mechanisms include two-wire connections on the left side while the peloton bike + has a single USB C + connection on the right side.

Now check and confirm that the cables are correctly connected.

During a long time, these connections lose their place. It mostly happens with the peloton Bike + version.

All that means the connection of the resistance mechanism should be in place. Otherwise, the Peloton won’t turn on after power outage.

Important:

  • Check the mechanism part at daylight or use a torch for clear visual.
  • Do not try to adjust or replace the place of those cables.

Peloton bike’s Display panel connection

Now comes the most straightforward connection investigation.

Your Peloton bike or bike + has a touch screen display on top.

Check the screen’s backside where a few wires are connected into specific ports. Make sure the cords are in place and safely attached to the adapter.

Sometimes, children pull the cord while playing. It can loosen the supply cord and detach from the place.

So while your back panel connection is not secured and placed, the peloton bike screen won’t turn on.

Now the connections may be different for ordinary bikes and bike + .

Normal peloton bikes include an audio port on the left side. In contrast, the supply cord is connected on the right side.

If you have a bike + then audio will be located at top and the supply cord should be in the middle.

Check the backside of the Peloton display panel, you will find the connections as per your purchasing model.

Peloton Bike + Brake Shroud

Peloton bike + users should check one more connection than ordinary bike owners.

“+” version peloton has a brake shroud on the outside part of the bike. This section locates the exact height of the resistance mechanism.

The top of the brake shroud has a USB-C connection. This cable should be attached to the port.

In some cases, the cable comes undone that you need to connect manually. However, it is rare but good to recheck the link before riding.

So above are connection tips to turn on a peloton bike. Check every connection step by step to start the indoor cycle securely.
