sorry about the short suggestion in advance. What it seems to me is that the weight is not locked in place, are you sure you are not forgetting something? check the user manual that your doing it correctly.
(if this is not a satisfactory response, and it probably is not, you may talk to another expert with the Work with another expert link below without any additional cost, thought I'd throw in my 2 cents)
Thanks and I hope you get it fixed. Ekse

What is a good strategy for playing table shuffleboard in regards to weight placement?

To earn the most points you will need to slide your weights as far down the table as possible, coming as close to the edge as possible without falling off. You should then guard your highest scoring weights by blocking them with other weights. Do this by shooting them close enough to act as a barricade, yet far enough that in case you opponent knocks one, they will not both fall off the edge.

Here are parts lists for the SelectTech 552 Version 1 and the SelectTech 552 Version 2. Looks like some weights are not available but some of them are, depending on which version is yours I hope the one you need is available.

Purchased a grandfather clock at a flea market and need to know how to wind it. Has chains not a key.

Pull the chains ... there is a weight on one end and the other end is free. Pull the free end down which will pull the weight up. It is the falling weight that operates the clock. There are probably several weights, each weight has a different purpose. The falling weight actually operates the pendulum. You will probably have to wind the clock (pull the chain) on a daily or weekly basis depending on the movement of the clock (i.e. 1 day clock or a 8 day clock) If the weights are missing, you will have to replace them. Contact a clock repair shop in your area.

If you had a Coo Koo clock, one weight would run the clock and a second weight would run the bird. A third weight would run a music box or other clock feature.

I hope this answers your question. Congratulations on your purchase.

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.

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.

The selecttech dumbell adjuster will not move. It says there is 7.5 lbs on the bar and there is actally only 2.5 lbs. The adjuster wheel will not turn. How do you fix it?

Push the button on the bottom of that releases the adjuster to spin. Set both to sides to 5, put all the weights back and your ready to place it back and select a weight.

My ceiling fan wont stop shaking

sound like the fan is unbalanced , go to HOME DEPOT or any hardware store and purchase a pack of weights , these are small weights with self adhesive on them, to BALANCE IT start with one blade at the time , with the pack of weights it should include a square black horseshoe type to clip on the fan blade , this black clip is to let you know where to put a small weight, OK , so clip on at the middle of 1rst blade , start fan at high speed , if it shakes less , put on a small weight , do the same with the rest of fan blades , until it stop shaking , hope this helpful , AJ
