Question about WEIDERFITNESS.COM Weider Platinum Plus

2 Answers

I have a Weider Platinum XP800 Crossbow that will not start.

When I plug it in there is no response on the control board. Does anyone know if there is a fuse box or something to reset it? I tried holding down the "Next" button along with the "Motorized Weight Adjustment +" button for 5 seconds as described in the manual and it did not fix the situation.

I had the same problem. Take off the black box at the base and check to see if any of the wires broke lose from the connectors, mine did. One pair of wires was alot shorter than the rest, so when the previous owner disassembled the crossbow he lifted the unit too far before disconnecting the wire connectors thus braking the two wires from the connector. Simply remove the remaining wire bits from the connector with something sharp (unplug machine from the wall). Then take the broken wires and push them down into the connector terminals with a butter knife. The terminals will cut through the wire insulation and make a contact with the wire. Problem solved.

Hi, i am looking for a weider platinum exercise tape and or manual i have owners manual

The best source I can recommend is that you contact Weider Fitness and see if they such material. Since it was design to compete with the Blow Flex and they have basic exercise movements that both utilize. I have seen some Video off of YouTube even though they are 3 to 5 minutes in length it will give you a starting point.

I have a weider crossbow platinum

Hello there, If you go to they have contact information, manuals and just about any other information you may require for your Crossbow.
Fyi the first thing I would check is the power supply itself to be sure it is putting out the correct voltage.
Good Luck! Tim

I have a Weider Platinum crossbow and the resistance isn't setting properly if at all. Is there a simple solution that I can do to fix this?

This is a common problem with this machine, the wiring inside the back. Mine was broken too, it was just a loose wire, but the stupid wire is so inside a protective case, you have to take the whole machine apart to be able to reach it.

You'll need a technician to come to your home. Call Icon to get a reference.

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.

Weider platinum xp800 does not work

There is a wire that breaks that is located inside of the pivot arm that hooks to the limit switch. (If you take off the back look on the RIGHT side of the machine.) When that breaks, the weight will not adjust.
I extended and rerouted my wires to run on the outside of the arm instead of the inside where they get nicked or broken by the moving parts.
