How To Fix Nuobell Dumbbells

Dumbbells are an essential piece of equipment for any serious weight lifter, and the Nuobell Dumbbells are known for their versatility and ease of use.

However, like any mechanical device, they can experience issues over time.

In this article, we'll address common problems with these dumbbells and provide effective solutions of how to fix your Nuobell dumbbells.Included below are the most common issues that users encounter with Nuobell Dumbbells and how to solve them.

One of the common problems users face is that the weight selection dial on one or both dumbbells won't turn. Here's how to address this issue:

1. Check Dumbbell Seating and Weight Plate Positioning

Ensure that the dumbbell is properly seated in the dock, and all weight plates are correctly positioned.

If one dial spins while the other doesn't, compare the two sides to ensure the plates are in the correct order. If this doesn't resolve the issue, avoid forcing the dial, and proceed to the next step.

2. Utilize the White Button Underneath

If one of the dials is stuck, take the affected dumbbell out of the rack and flip it over, even if it has weight discs on it.

Look for a white button near the handle on the side that is stuck. Press down on this button (note that it might be stiff) to enable the weight selection dial to turn. While holding down the white button, spin the dial and remove the discs from the stuck side.

Place all the discs in their proper slots on the dock with the steel hook facing outward. Continue holding down the white button, spin the dial to 5lbs, then release the button and return the empty dumbbell to the dock with the discs in their correct position.

3. Check the Steel Hooks on the Base

When the dumbbells are out of the base, you'll notice two steel hooks to the north and south of the center depression in the base, resembling a cup holder. Ensure that these hooks are at a 90-degree angle to the base.

If they accidentally bend down toward the base, the white button described in step 2 may not depress when the handle is in the base. If bent, gently bend them back up so they depress the white button under the handle.In addition to the common issue of stuck dials, another problem that users may encounter with Nuobell Dumbbells is a broken handle.

While this can be frustrating, replacing the handle is a relatively straightforward process. Follow these steps to ensure a smooth and successful handle replacement:

1. Set the Handle on the Lowest Weight

Before you start the handle replacement process, make sure the dumbbell is set to its lowest weight setting. This ensures that the weight plates won't interfere with the handle replacement procedure.

2. Remove a Plate to Access the Lowest Weight Setting

If you find that you cannot access the lowest weight setting due to a plate obstructing the way, there's a simple solution.

Place a screwdriver on the centerpiece of the plate and gently tap it with a hammer. This should release the plate, allowing you to place it back into the tray once you've completed the handle replacement.

3. Remove the Baseplate Screws

To replace the handle, you'll need to detach the old one first. Locate the baseplate of the dumbbell, and you'll find eight screws securing it in place (four on each side). Carefully remove all eight screws using an appropriate screwdriver.

4. Align the Male Connector of the New Handle

Take the new handle and align the male connector with the numbers on both sides of the handle. Ensuring proper alignment is essential to maintain accurate weight increments during your workouts.

5. Insert the New Handle

Once the male connector is aligned, place the new handle into the tray where the previous handle was positioned. Make sure it fits snugly in place.

6. Test the Weight Increments

After inserting the new handle, twist the handle to each weight increment to confirm that all weight plates can be used with the new handle.

This step ensures that the weight selection mechanism is functioning correctly and that you can smoothly transition between different weight settings during your workouts.With your dumbbells now in perfect working condition, you can continue your weight lifting journey with confidence, knowing that your equipment is well-maintained and ready to support your fitness goals!
