No reistance on the rowing handle.

After 2-3 pulls on the handle, and the fan speed increases, there seems to be no resistance until the fan slows down. The belt retracts but does not seem to catch until the fan slows down.

My weider platinum home gym will not adjust weight- the resistance buttons increase and decrease, but the motor will not run


It sounds like the motor is burned out or the connections form the switch, or to the motor are bad. You'll need to troubleshoot with a voltage meter.

I am not getting any resistance from my Integrity 3000 rower. The fan does not make a noise when I pull.


Your chain is stuck on the bearing and not on the gear. Its stuck on the rod holding the gear. See the thing that looks like a bicycle chain that leleads from the pull handle to the black cover next to the fan? Well under that black cover is a gear that holds the bicycle chain. To get to it, you need a screwdriver. Take off the cover and you need to pull the bar vertical to the air and you need to realign the chain. Your welcome! Source: same problem

We have a Nordictrack Futura 2200 and when we set the weight resistance it jumps back to 10lbs. no matter what we set it for it jumps back to 10lbs


When the resistance setting changes, the motor will be heard. To prevent damage to the motor, do not pull any of the cables while the resistance setting is changing. If the motor has difficulty adjusting the resistance level and no cable is being pulled, there may be too much tension on the Upper Cable (110). Adjust the tension as described below. To decrease the tension on the Upper Cable (110), turn the two 3/8” x 38mm Tension Screws (106) twice, counterclockwise. Select the desired resistance setting. Repeat this step if necessary.

Cable breaks every 10 -15 times I row. Could I buy another recommended cable with instructions for fitting correctly?


Is it the bungee that breaks? If so, you can absolutely replace that if you call the manufacturer.
You will know that the bungee is breaking if you pull on the cord and receive no resistance, or if the cable does not reel itself in.
If it is the actual cable connecting to your handle, there is much larger issue with your machine, and a new cable is not going to help. You should look into repairing the whole system.

Cord seems to be slipping off the flywheel; I pull and the cord goes slack, spools out much more than is needed, and when it retracts (basically from my stopping the pull and slowly letting it reel itself...


You have a bungee problem, your bungees broke. You can easily order new bungees from your manufacturer. They are also easy to replace once you take off the side of the fan.

My Weider XP800 will increase in resistance but will not decrease


There is a wire that Breaks that is attached to a limit switch that is located inside the elbow of the Pivot arm. If looking from the Back of the Machine, it is on the RIGHT side. I extended the wire an rerouted it to run on the outside of the pivot arm to avoid be nicked or pinced by the moving parts.
