Selecttech 1090 Dumbbells

The end caps that adjust the weight are stfrozen and can’t rotate. Can I fix them at home or am I out of luck. My set is about 4 years old.
Experienced athletes share their insights in answering this question:
Just call Bowflex. If you don’t want to call here’s the solution. There is a reset button on the bottom of the handle. Take the handle out, place on the floor side ways, depress the square button and turn to 5 lbs. Whatever weights that were on handle will fall out. Place the weights back into the holder. Make sure they are positioned correctly then put the handle back. Then test by dialing up different weight settings and lifting the ******** out of the holder. You should be back in business. If that doesn’t work call Bowflex which you should do anyway.

How Do The Bowflex SelectTech 552 Dumbbells Work? Changing the weight is as simple as turning a dial. As you can see, each adjustable dumbbell sits in a storage tray which holds the weighted plates and dumbbell. All you have to do is turn the dials on each end of the dumbbells to change the weight.
Bottom Line. If you want affordable adjustable dumbbells, the Bowflex pair are a great option. Although they don`t get very heavy, they are a great option for beginners and those who do not need more than 52.5 lbs per hand.
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.
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.
No assembly needed and they can be adjusted simply by turning the dials to the desired weight. The mechanism does the rest. How do I adjust to the desired weight? Simply turn each adjustment knob to the number reflecting the desired weight.
The way these adjustable dumbbells work is simple – they come with a dock on which they`re placed. While they`re on the dock, you can twist the handle around and change the weight to your desired one – then, you simply lift them off the dock and start training.
Finally, Bowflex Dumbbells are often sold as a set, which may come with additional attachments and accessories that can also increase the price.

With over 30 strength exercises and a built-in rowing station for a calorie blasting workout, the PR1000 is a great way to begin your training routine. Folds for easy storage.

Machine will stop adjusting resistance. On start up the machine will usually work. I can go through the calibration procedure and it will calibrate and work normally for 4 or 5 resistance adjustments. It will then stop adjusting. It acts like there is a cable pulled and refuses to adjust, even though I am not getting the warning telling me to “Release cable”
I have modified the wiring harness so that the wires do not fall off from the stepper motor, so this is not the problem. If I shut the machine down and leave it for several minutes, it will come back and work normal again… for a while. I am wondering if there is a problem with the sensors that are detecting a cable pull? Is there a way to disable those sensors to see if that is the problem
ANSWER : I would think that your problem has possibly to do with a faulty power supply, component, see to my mind it is a thermal problem as it heats up,it goes faulty? The Voltage changes and it goes out of spec.. When left to cool, it then is OK… Usually, & from my experience this is a thermal problem. To see obtain some Freeze Spray, from radio Shack or similar,and spray components on the main power board, and others too, use it on any large heat sinked components and see if when you do this the fault clears. Then replace that component(s).

Or as you suggest the sensors that feed the inputs maybe with sensors though one has little option but to replace them and see if this clears the problem.

Weights fall off dumbell after a weight has been selected
ANSWER : Hello,

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.

Have boweflex selecttech dumbbells and one set will not turn dial and change weights please contact me at [email protected] and advise me how to get this repaired thank you
ANSWER : Either the handle is broke or try making sure all the weights are facing right way (same way) or the handle will not sit all the way down. It needs to sit all the way down for the button on the bottom of the handle to be pushed to release the adjuster to be able to spin and grab weights.
