I can help you with your Bowflex Revolution home-gym problem with a loose cable.

Follow these steps to untangle / remove the slack of your Bowflex Revolution cable:

  1. Take the sides and top off the main unit (you will need a very long, think Phillips screwdriver to get on e of the screws out.)
  2. Remove the 5lb plates for the spiraflex weights.
  3. Pull out the tension knob.
  4. Move the inner wheel clockwise, making sure the bands are straight down, not angled, & that the 'counter weights' are resting on the springs inside.
  5. Then replace the plates and sides.

I hope that helps.

How do I fold the bowflex revolution


There is a pop pin on the support at the end of the seat rail that must be pulled out to fold a Revolution up. You might want to download the complete operation manual, it is available directly from the manufacturer at bowflexcatalog.com. The product manual link is at the bottom of the page.

I put one the first weight and locked it in i didn't know that you had to put all six and then lock it in. How do i take the one i put on off and start over


You should be able to take off the plates by turning them the opposite direction as putting them on. If you look at the plate you'll see the grooves that lock each one together. You just need to twist the plate you want off and twist it out of the grooves. Once out of the grooves it will turn back to normal, releasing the tension on the bands inside. You can then just slide it off the bar. The perm attached 5# plate tends to turn too. You need that one to be stationary. If you can't do it alone, have someone hold the perm 5# plate steady as you turn 'off' the additional plates.

Wrong seat pad with 5.1 bench


They (Bowflex) should replace the seat with the proper seat. Sometimes a picture can go a long ways. That provided they should ship out the correct seat.

Pulley system "off track" inside main frame of 2005 boflex revolution


I had same problem. I fixed it by taking plastic sides off using a long phillips head screwdriver. Jay, you don't have to take the sides off to fix your problem. The sides come off only to untangle and rewind cables on pulleys. Pull the cables all the way out. Have a helper pull out and keep holding out the tension knob This is shown at the bottom of page nine in the manual. With someone holding the tension knob out turn the large pully located beneith the tension knob CLOCKWISE! I screwed mine up by turning it counter-clockwise. This winds the handle to the top and if you start with all the cable pulled off the pully, the cable should then wind itself nicely back onto the pully. Once the handle is all the way up, with the round ball on the cable jammed up against the pully, then and only then let go of the tension knob and let it fall back into place. If the handle falls down a few inches repeat this proceedure but push lower pully a bit harder and try to turn tension knob, while it is pulled out, in the opposite direction and it will then click into place one notch tighter and should hold the black ball on the cable firmly against the pulley. Let me know if this was helpful.
