Question about WEIDERFITNESS.COM Weider Platinum Plus

1 Answer

I have the weider wesy78732. The resistance motor will not run when powered on. the machine will not calibrate. If I manually rotate screw off lower limit switch and power up, the unit will move back down to the lower limit switch and stop. connections to motor are ok because...well the motor runs. Its like the motor will only run in one direction only. I have checked limit switches (OK) the reed sensor, for the motor is ok. I have not swaped out the wire harness yet, that will be next unless someone can give me better advice. Does this sound more like the control board?

I would check the COMPLETE wiring harness. Weider Platinum WESY78732's are known to have issues with wires coming off of the motor and wiring issues in general. If it is not a wiring issue, it certainly could be the control board in the console. (Which is $211.54 by the way)

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 just bought a used machine and the weight adjustment is inaccurate. I have to put it up to over 200 lbs resistance in order to get maybe 40 lbs despite what the machine reads. Is there something I can...


If you find the manual (quick online search) on page 23 there is a section under "RECALIBRATE THE MACHINE" .

Basically: Plug it in. Hold down the "Next" and "Resistance +" buttons together for 5+ seconds and release; some text will appear on the main display. Press "Next" again followed by pressing the "Resistance +" button again. The system should 'calibrate', you'll hear it moving thru the resistance lowest to highest (or vice versa). After it finishes it beeps or displays or both, unplug the system. When you plug it back up hopefully it fixes the problem.

The resistance motor on our WESY75740 stopped working. We tried to recalibrate, but it failed to do anything. What should we do?


I would check the wiring harness. I have a Weider Platinum WESY78732 and have had issues with wires coming off of the motor. I ended up putting an automotive (female) spade connector on the end and squeezing it with pliers to keep it on there tighter. A lot of these Weider Home Gyms have wiring issues.

Weider Crossbow Platinum The weight resistance needs calibration 20 lbs feels like 100 lbs. How can I fix this?


ADJUSTING THE RESISTANCE 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 a cable is pulled, the words RELEASE HANDLES AND READJUST RESISTANCE AS DESIRED may appear in the main display on the console.If this message is displayed repeatedly but no cable is being pulled, there may be too much tension on the Upper Cable . Adjust the tension as described below. To decrease the tension on the Upper Cable.turn the two 3/8” x 38mm Tension Screws twice,counterclockwise. Select the desired resistance setting.Repeat this step if necessary.CLEANING THE BAR GUIDES Over time, dust may build up on the Crossbar Guides , causing a squeaking noise as the resistance system is used. If this occurs, wipe off the Crossbar Guides with a damp cloth and a mild, non-abrasive detergent. Do not use solvents.
RECALIBRATING THE CONSOLE To recalibrate the Console , first plug in the resistance system . Plug the indicated end of the Transformer into the Back Mech Cover . Plug the other end of the Transformer into a 120-volt outlet. All indicators and displays on the console will flash once; the console will then be ready for use. The motor may be heard while the resistance system calibrates itself. Important: Always plug in the transformerwhen using the resistance system., press and hold the NEXT button and the MOTORIZED WEIGHT ADJUSTMENT + button for five seconds. When the buttons are released, a number will appear in the REPS display. Press the NEXT button again, then press the MOTORIZED WEIGHT ADJUSTMENT + button; this will start the recalibration process. This may take a few minutes as the motor moves between the lowest and highest resistance settings. When the motor finishes, unplug the transformer from the 120- volt outlet.The Console will be recalibrated. Use the resistance system as described in the CONSOLE

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.

Console will not calibrate using steps provided in the manual.


Plug the indicated end of the Transformer into the Rear Mech Cover . Plug the other end of the Transformer into a 120-volt outlet. All indicators and displays on the console will flash once; the console will then be ready for use. The motor may be heard while the resistance system calibrates itself. Important: Always plug in the transformer when using the resistance system.
Then, press and hold the NEXT button and the motorize resistance + button for five seconds. When the buttons are released, a number will appear in the REPS display. Press the NEXT button again, and then press the MOTORIZED RESISTANCE + button; this will start the recalibration process. This may take a few seconds as the motor moves between the lowest and highest resistance settings. When the motor finishes, unplug the transformer from the 120-volt outlet.
If you cannot hear the motor reset it self or cannot see display then with multi meter check DC voltage if not replace transformer , if you have DC voltage you will need to remove the cover locate the motor assembly disconnect the assembly from the upper electronics. Then apply a 12v DC voltage to the motor and see if it engages easily if not then replace motor. If motor functions properly replace connector back on the motor and use a multi meter connect it to motor and plug in the transformer and you should see DC voltage going to motor if not replace upper console.

i have the manual, to recalibrate the machine press and hold the next button and the motorized wieght adjustment+ button for five seconds. when the buttons are released, a number will appear in the reps display. press the next button again, then press the motorized weight adjustment+ button: this should start the reclaibration process. i am lucky i bought the machine in 10-2004 and it has a ten year warrenty. it isn't working it happened before and they had to replace the motor. if it works remembe to unplug the machine when not in use. it is a great machine to get in shape with. you just have to use it.
