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.

Bowflex Select Tech will not come out of base. Is

One of the weights is most likely a little off in the base. To unstick, remove the four screws on the base, then the two screws on clip. Handle will then remove.

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.

When selecting a weight the

This generally happens when you match a larger weight on one side with a smaller weight on the other side of the ********, and usually can be fixed by just equaling out the weight and trying it again. Or remove the Dumbbells from the base and remove the plates from the base until the base was completely emptied. Then, with the emptied base, place the Dumbbells back within the base (without remaining plates on the floor). You should be able to switch the dials back to 10 lbs with plates from the Dumbbells coming off. Then simply place back all the plates within the base and place the DB back within the base with the plates ready to go. The Dumbbells should pick the plates right back up.
