Weight System Cables Are Twisted

Over time, weight system cables can become twisted. This happens when the pulleys that the cables run on begin to wear down, or when the pulleys are no longer able to spin freely.

To prevent this from occurring, check that each pulley is able to spin freely. Pulleys can be lubricated with a light, multipurpose oil product.

Cables that are twisted need to be completely removed from the weight machine. After the cables have been removed, lay them out on the floor overnight. This will allow them to untwist. When they are untwisted, follow the assembly instructions in the owner’s manual to re-route the cables.
