Bowflex dumbbells cannot be dropped. In fact, certain models like the SelectTech 552`s have warnings on them stating that they shouldn`t be dropped. Dropping them can crack the plastic parts or cause the adjustable dials to break. It`s also possible for some of the plates to break if the dumbbells are dropped.
If you are not using the optional Dumbbell Stand, put the Dumbbell assembly directly on the floor for best support.
Attach Leg Extension to Bowflex by sliding Bench forward, then placing Leg Extension Bracket onto end of Seat Rail. Secure by inserting the “L” Pin through the two holes on Leg Extension Bracket.
First, dumbbells and kettlebells should never be dropped. Dumbbells bounce and can easily hurt people. This also counts for kettlebells, and these will easily be damaged when you drop them. Do not be surprised, if after being reminded of this and continuing to drop them, the coach swaps your weights for lighter ones.
The Bowflex SelectTech 552 dumbbell trays are plastic, which can crack if you drop the weights into them with too much force, and the weights themselves can be scuffed and scratched.
The old Bowflex 552 dumbbells were discontinued and in their place stand this 552i version with some subtle changes to design and features, including a new hand grip that has a soft rubber coating.
Yes, adjustable dumbbells are quite durable, as they`re made of iron and steel. Also, plastic is used to make some of their components, so if you drop them, they can break easily.
The real answer lies in one of two reasons. The first is the ergonomics of the weights. The weights at the gym may be designed differently, may possibly be smaller in size (and more dense) and therefore more comfortable or easy to lift. The other reason is psychological.
A versatile option for home gyms, the Bowflex SelectTech 552 adjustable dumbbells can add some variety to your strength-training workouts. By simply turning a dial at the end of the dumbbell, you can change the weight to suit your exercise and fitness level.
Barbell collars hold your weightlifting plates on your bar to ensure that they don`t slip or fall off while you are working out – protecting both you, and your equipment. There are many types of barbell collar, each with their advantages and disadvantages, which we`ll take a look at in this article.
Absolutely. With the SelectTech® 552 Dumbbells, the weight can be adjusted from 5 to 52.5 lbs (2.26 to 23.7 kg).
Finally, Bowflex Dumbbells are often sold as a set, which may come with additional attachments and accessories that can also increase the price. In summary, Bowflex dumbbells are expensive due to the adjustable feature, high-quality materials, brand reputation, and additional attachments and accessories.
Should your SelectTech® Dumbbell handle assembly, plates or base become soiled you may clean them with a cloth lightly dampened with warm water and a small amount of mild soap. Wipe dry with a separate cloth.

2005 4 stroke yamaha 150 550hrs. normally use every week but due to surgery not used for 10weeks. Just before I went down I changed internal fuel filter, and zincs in motor. finally put in sunday. motor started fine left dock hit the power and started to come up on plane then stuttered and died. changed the external fuel/water seperator pump up the primer and started up again. with in a minute died down again. limped back to dock checked fuel filter and plug wire connections. pumped up primer and left dock went right onto plane for maybe 150yds then coughed and died. I could pump up primer and it would run but then die out. the fuel filter at the front of the engine would run dry until I pumped it up again. If it were a car I would suspect a leak in a fuel line but I can’t find any sign of one.
before we launched I put 10 gallons of fresh fuel in and added another bottle of ethanol stabilizer (CRC brand)
what proceedure should I follow to isolate the problem? I am a fairly competent mechanic as far as cars and trucks go. I don’t really want to have to take it to a marine mechanic.
ANSWER : This is going to be the fuel pump is not pumping any fuel. The primer is acting as a fuel pump. When you prime it, it gives the engine enough fuel to run for a little bit. But as soon as the fuel runs out, the engine is dying. So this is going to be a bad fuel pump.

I have a mossberg 510 youth 20 guage i took to the silder for the safety and the piece inside fell im 99% sure i have the peice put back properly but there is a small spring that i dont know what do do with it fell out and i do know where from the slider just freely moves back and forth and think it must be somthing about the spring that is keeping me from being able to get this problem fixed i have been working on this for hours please help
ANSWER : It’s pretty hard to figure this out without seeing the exact pieces sitting in front of someone. What I woud suggest is that you take the gun into a gun shop, and have them help you identify where the spring goes. This is the safest thing to do, when in doubt, otherwise you could jam or otherwise cause some damage.
Perhaps someone will have a Mossman, and know your answer, but if you don’t get one, call on the guys that do it for a living.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

We have a NordicTrack EXP 1000X. We purchased it new, but did not use it very much. We started using it again and now at different times (ie, 15 min, 1 min etc) it will come to a complete stop. It almost throws you off. Once you step off it starts moving again until you put your weight back on it, where it will once again stop. There have been times where you can feel the speed fluctuate, but the digital numbers do not change. We really hope you can help!
(Bogs Down or is Sluggish)

This condition is when the treadmill operates normally
without a person on the belt and then slows down when someone steps on
the belt or when the treadmill operates normally for a given period of
with someone on the belt then abruptly begins to slow down.
There are four typical causes for this problem (listed in
order of our experience:
1) The walking belt and/or deck are worn. (85% of the time)

2) The walking belt and/or motor belt are too tight- if you
have adjusted either recently. (8% of the time)
3) The motor has lost torque and needs brushes or has
demagnetized. (5% of the time)

4) The controller is dropping output. (2% of the time)
Walking Belt is Worn:
The only certain way to test for a worn walking belt is to
take a DC amp draw (if you have a DC treadmill) or an AC draw (for AC).
Trying to look at the belt or a feel test is highly unreliable. Better
tests, if you lack a DC ammeter (they are expensive for a good one), are
a coast test or an incline test. To test the deck, go back to the
Troubleshooting section and download the belt and deck inspections
The coast test is to get on the treadmill as the lowest
incline setting and walk on the treadmill at 3 MPH. Pull the safety key
and it should take you 2-3 full steps to stop (this is a general
rule…some like a few Tunturi models stop on a dime even with a healthy
belt but most this tests works well upon). Fewer steps indicate high
The incline test is to put the treadmill at max incline and
walk on it at 3 MPH. If the treadmill operates normally at max incline
but bogs down at minimum incline, replace the walking belt. Gravity
takes over for the drive system eliminating the friction problem. On
some heavily worn walking belts, this test will not eliminate the
Walking Belt/Motor Belt too Tight:
If you have adjusted the walking belt or motor belt recently,
check for this problem. When the belts start slipping, some people just
crank down the belts and on treadmills, tighter is not necessarily
better. The tighter the belts, the more the drive system has to work to
keep everything moving. You should be able to lift the walking belt
(with the treadmill unplugged) in the center of the treadmill about 3”
without straining. Tighter belts should be loosen but make sure you
don’t create a dangerous slipping situation by loosening.
The motor belt (with the treadmill unplugged) should be able
to be turned by hand to almost a 90 degree angle from its normal
operating position. Loosen the belt if too tight. Make sure to test for
and if it does with the proper tension, replace the motor
Needs Brushes / Demagnetized Motor:
Typically when we find a motor that has lost torque; it needs
a new set of motor brushes. Typically we can make brushes for almost
any motor if we don’t already stock them. Motor demagnetization is not
that common but it does happen and it is normally easy to diagnose. If
you have confirmed the belt and/or deck is not worn and the belts aren’t
too tight, you can test for a motor torque problem.
The step to test for the motor is to use a foreign object
preferably on a long shaft. First determine the direction of the motor
spin (most have directional movement printed on the motor tag), then
apply pressure with an object with downward pressure on the flywheel in
the direction the flywheel is turning (do not attempt to put force
against the rotating direction of the flywheel as you can easily injure
yourself). If you can slow the motor, typically you need brush
To test for demagnetization, the motor must be disassembled.
Once you have the motor retaining bolts removed, remove the motor core
by sliding it out of the end of the housing. If the magnets pull the
against the housing and it is difficult to remove, the magnets
are good. If the magnets do not attract the core, the motor has to be
This is the most uncommon of the causes. Typically replacing a
controller in this situation will not solve the underlying problem and
then you will end up replacing a belt as well as a control. Normally if a

control is dropping output, it will do it with a person on the
belt or not. Tests of DC output dropping is normal in many controls
since they have a current limiter which will automatically drop output
to prevent burning up the board. This is best diagnosed by eliminating
the other possible problems first. If you are left with the control as
the cause,
replace the control. Let me know,if needed further assistance.Hope i helped you.Thanks for using ‘ Fixya ‘ and have a nice day!!
