SOURCE: have boweflex selecttech dumbbells and one set

Either the handle is broke or try making sure all the weights are facing right way (same way) or the handle will not sit all the way down. It needs to sit all the way down for the button on the bottom of the handle to be pushed to release the adjuster to be able to spin and grab weights.

Try setting the handle in the plates back onto the carrier(bottom). Lightly tap on each plate that is stuck. Now push the plates down (vertically) onto the bottom carrier. Now try turning the dial (side that was stuck). It worked for me. Have my 1090 plates were stuck on the handle. Good luck

SOURCE: One of my Bowflex Dumbell's dial will not turn,

Hi there, I wanted to add my solution to these as I bought a set of second hand bowflex dumbbells only to find one of them wouldn't turn. The dail kept sticking or just not turning. After hitting goggle and coming up blank i turned to the tool box lol I set the bar to 5lb both sides and removed the handle, leaving all the weights in the base, I then removed the weights from the base one by one. Once the base was empty I replaced the empty handle onto the empty base and tried to turn the knob, it wouldnt turn, on the base there are two metal hooks, these stop you pulling the handles out In between weight settings, the metal hook on the base was hitting the metal disk (which has many hooks all around it) on the handle. I lifted the handle off Swaped sides and it still was hitting the metal base hook. If you undo the 6 screws on the underside of the base and pull apart the two halfs you will find a large black square which is held in place by 2 more screws, remove these and pull out this square, you will now have access to the underside of those two metal hook (which are held in place by two screws each) undo these a little and push back on the hooks and retighten these screws, turn the base over and replace the handle to see if the dial will turn freely on the base. Replace all the screws, re fix the two base halfs together, sit the weights down in the base, place the handle back and turn that dail Hope this helps someone.

HOW DO YOU ADD UP TH FINAL MARKS?


It depends on your jurisdiction. In Ontario, the term mark has a weighting of 70, while the summative and final exams have a combined weighting of 30.

To illustrate, let's do an example.

Term mark worth 70% of final grade - 70
Summative mark worth 10% of final grade - 80
Formal exam mark worth 20% of final grade - 90

Your overall final mark would be as follows

70 x 0.70 = 49
80 x 0.10 = 8
90 x 0.20 = 18
------
Overall Mark 75

Good luck,

Paul

My bowflex dumbells are jammed and i cant remove them from the holder


Hi I called 1-800-628-8458 (the number in the manual) after trying several of the methods shown here. None worked. your dumbbell needs to be on a flat surface, no roll the dumbbell over to where the weight is facing the floor and the base is up in the air. With both hands lift the base and gently shake, the weight should fall out. Put the base back on the floor face up and inspect the grooves where the weight plates go for any debris. Clean this area if you find debris. Now you will need a pen or pencil with your weight. Grab your weight, still facing down and you will see a black release button on both sides on the inside of the weight. It is in between the metal dial and the inner part of the weight. Now press down on that button with your pen or pencil and start turning the dial (caution: the weight plates are going to fall out) keep turning until all of the plates are out. Do the same thing for the other side. Now grab each plate and put it back on the base where it goes, the smallest plate on the outside to the largest plate on the inside, make sure the small metal piece on the bottom of each plate is facing away from the inside of the base. Do this for all of the plates. Now back to the dumbbell. Grab your pen or pencil again and press down on the black release button and turn the dial to where the number 5 or lowest weight is selected where it reads Bowflex. Do this for both sides. Now grab your dumbbell and carefully put it back into the base. It is important that you put the dumbbell down straight, avoiding any shifting in plates.



I hope this helped.

Selecttech 1090 Dumbbells: the end caps that adjust the weight are stfrozen, ...


Just call Bowflex. If you don't want to call here's the solution. There is a reset button on the bottom of the handle. Take the handle out, place on the floor side ways, depress the square button and turn to 5 lbs. Whatever weights that were on handle will fall out. Place the weights back into the holder. Make sure they are positioned correctly then put the handle back. Then test by dialing up different weight settings and lifting the ******** out of the holder. You should be back in business. If that doesn't work call Bowflex which you should do anyway.

Counterweight on my technics 1200 wont catch to screw on. Threads inside the weight look fine but there seems to be a small "bump" on the under back side of the tone arm. This "bump" doesnt stick out as...


It doesn't screw on, it pushes on....

"With the tonearm locked in place, put the anti‐skate
dial on "0" and push the counterweight onto the rear of
the tonearm. Make sure that the numbers face to the
front of the turntable. Turn the weight until you feel it
"click" into place.

Unlock the tonearm from the rest, and move it
toward the middle, about one inch from the edge of the
platter. Hold the arm off the surface with your right
hand on the finger lift. Begin turning the counterweight
one way or the other, until the arm seems to just
"float".

As seen in the picture, the arm, when properly
floating, will not face up nor down.. it will stay
with the platter. It may take a few tries to get
correct. Lock the tonearm back on it's rest.

Holding the rear, silver, section of the counterweight
with one hand, use your other hand to turn JUST the
number ring. It doesn't matter which direction you turn
it, but you will want "0" to face up when you are done.

Using just one hand, turn the entire counterweight
(the silver part) COUNTERCLOCKWISE until the
recommended tracking force is achieved. New
cartridges will tell what the ideal number is. As a rule of
thumb, however, most "hi‐fi" cartridges track between
1 and 2 grams, while most DJ cartridges track between
3 and 5 grams.

Set the anti‐skate dial to coincide with the tracking
force... in other words, if the tracking force is 2 grams,
set the anti‐skate dial to "2". The exception is for DJ's
who scratch and back‐cue. Your anti‐skate must be left
on "0". "

My lift works but wont lift any weight


Sounds like your oil is to thin. Should be 90 weight mineral based gear oil. Try draining and refilling with 90 weight.
Hope that helps.
