Troubleshooting – Weider Pro 4850 831.153932 User Manual
Make sure all parts are properly tightened each time the weight system is used. Replace any worn parts immedi-
ately. The weight system can be cleaned using a damp cloth and mild non-abrasive detergent. Do not use solvents.
TIGHTENING THE CABLES
Woven cable, the type of cable used on the weight system, can stretch slightly when it is first used. If there is
slack in the cables before resistance is felt, the cables should be tightened. To tighten the cables, first insert the
weight pins into the centers of the weight stacks. Slack can be removed from the cables in several ways:
See drawing 1. To tighten the Squat Cable (73) or the Swivel
High Cable (not shown), first loosen the M12 Nut (118) on
the end of the Cable, away from the 50mm Washer (1).
Screw the end of the Cable farther into the Weight Tube (43).
Then, retighten the Nut against the Washer.
See drawing 3. To tighten the other five cables, first remove
the upper or lower M10 Nylon Locknut (87), M10 x 50mm
Bolt (100), 90mm Pulley (78), and Cable Trap (68) from the
Pulley Plates (63) or Small Pulley Plates (not shown).
Reattach the Pulley and the Cable Trap between a set of
holes closer to the center of the Pulley Plates with the Bolt
See drawing 2. To further tighten the Squat Cable (73), first
remove the M10 Nylon Locknut (87), the M10 x 50mm Bolt
(100), Cable Trap (68), and 90mm Pulley (78) from the indi-
cated bracket on the Long Base (106). Reattach the Pulley
and Cable Trap between a lower set of holes with the Bolt
and Nylon Locknut.
See drawing 4. To remove additional slack, first remove the
M10 Nylon Locknut (87), M10 x 50mm Bolt (100), 90mm
Pulley (78), and Cable Trap (68) from the “U”-bracket (64).
Reattach the Pulley and the Cable Trap between the higher set
of holes in the “U”-bracket with the Bolt and Nylon Locknut.
Slack can also be removed from the cables by tightening the
M8 Nylon Locknut (86) at the end of the Leg Lever Cable
(75). To do this you may need to remove the 90mm Pulley
(78) from the “U”-Bracket (64).
Do not overtighten the cables. If the cables are overtight-
ened, the top weights will be lifted off the weight stacks.
If a cable slips off the pulleys repeatedly, it may have
become twisted. Remove the cable and re-install it. If the
cables need to be replaced, see ORDERING REPLACE-
MENT PARTS on the back cover of this manual.
