My compressor smels like its berning


Clutch is bad or compressor is leaking and the oil has dried out...At that point it is probably fried. disconnect the electrical lead to the compressor to it to prevent further damage and possible seizure and ripping of belt. and take it to a mechanic. I assume you are talking about the air conditioning compressor. Just keep in mind you probably won't be able to defog you windows once you disconnect the compressor .

Tip

Snow throwers


Just returned from the parts store, they had sold out of drive belts for the auger drive on snow throwers... figured I could help out here;

Wet snow is heavy, duh right? Before you run your snow thrower disconnect the spark plug, for safety. Check the chute, and sand any loose paint rust etc. you want a smooth chute.. paint if needed, let dry 24 hours before use, spray with silicon lube spray, this will loessen the stress on your auger belt and hopefully keep your machine running all season. Good luck!

Why does my Nordictrac c2300 start and stop?


It could be because it is overheating due to the fact that the floor belt is too dry and the motor is labouring hard to spin the floor belt. When was the last time you lubricated the base of the floor belt (the flat base where the floor belt slides on)? A couple of little sprays of Silicone Lubricant should ease the motor workload as the floor belt rolls on. If you're a big person, the excess weight also tempts to dry the floor belt quicker and if you're running on it while the home is being heated in winter of during warm summer days, or you are training on carpeted or linty areas, all the excess heat and dust dries the floor belt faster and need to be lubricated more often. Lift the floor belt and feel with your hands if there is any lubrication. A wet feel means it is lubricated, while a dry feel or sticky hand as you move your hand left and right means it is dry. Dry belts are the blame of 80-90% of motor failure and or seizures due to lack of care and maintenance. Lubricate it once per month. If you don't like spraying Silicone lubricant directly under the floor belt, do this; find a lint-less rug such as a kitchen drying cloth and go outside the house, spray the Silicone lubricant on the cloth to lightly soak it and then go to the treadmill, lift the floor belt and apply the wet cloth evenly on the base until you believe it is lubricated enough to make the rolling of the belt with ease. Run it for half a minute at slow speed (walking pace) before you can safely use it for running or jogging, etc.

See if the washer spins out more water with part of the wet load removed. Sometimes the problem is a simple as the wet wash is too heavy. Next, be sure to disconnect the power and then check the belts.

I bought it in 2003 neptune dryer and the 3 bar inside the dryer broke and the dryer is not working right . we have to dry them 3 time before they are all dry


Instructions
Things You'll Need:

* Phillips-head screwdriver
* Replacement belt

1. Disconnect the power cord of the Maytag Neptune dryer from the dryer electrical outlet.
2. Open the dryer door, and locate the four screws on the inside lip of the door opening. Use a Phillips-head screwdriver to remove the four screws. This will disconnect the front panel from the shroud assembly.
3. Grab the front panel on each side with your hands. Lift up on the front panel to unhook it from the retaining tabs on the side panels. Remove the front panel, and set it out of your way.
4. Use a Phillips-head screwdriver to remove the four outside perimeter screws that secure the shroud and tumbler front to the dryer cabinet. Pull the shroud and tumbler front away from the tumbler while lifting the top panel partially up.
5. Reach both of your hands underneath each side of the tumbler. Use your left hand to grasp the idler pulley, and pull it to the left while using your right hand to slip the belt off the motor pulley. Pulling the idler pulley to the left releases tension on the belt. You can now slip the belt off the back of the tumbler.
6. Take the old belt with you along with the model number of your dryer to purchase a new belt. Most appliance repair shops will have replacement belts in stock. Make sure that the new belt matches the old one by comparing the two.
7. Slide the new belt over the rear of the tumbler with the ribbed side pointed to the inside. Using both hands under the tumbler, route the belt around the motor pulley and idler pulley. Pull the idler pulley to the left while routing the belt, and carefully allow the idler pulley back to the right to apply tension.
8. Reattach the tumbler front and shroud to the front of the cabinet using the retaining screws. Place the front panel over the side retaining tabs, and push it down to lock it in place.
9. Open the dryer door, and secure the front panel to the shroud using the retaining screws. Close the dryer door, and plug the power cord back into the dryer electrical outlet.

My dryer is producing heat but is not drying, i am drying the same size load i usually do on the same cycle. the lent is cleaned out, and the oustide vent is blowing hot air. why are my clothes not getting...


make sure that all the seals are ok, door,front and back drum seal, blower housing seal(inside dryer). also consider that depending on washer type if you overload or have a worn drive belt in washer it will take twice the time to dry. also make sure that the dryer drum tumble. open door,press door switch and start dryer to see if drum turn. lastly disconnect vent pipe behind dryer and dry a load. if it dry ok then you have a partial blockage. you can also have a weak heating element.

Hi Im having a problem with my dryer..........Its getting hot and everything but the drum on the inside is not turning so only half of the clothes are getting dry.Can you help me?


Almost certainly the belt has either slipped off or has broken.You need to ask an appliance tech to check it if belt is broken as the electrics have to be disconnected and drum removed to install new one.There is a belt tensioner on some of the units as well.

Whirlpool lhw0050pq washer will not spin


Possible your belt is loose; you have to unscrew the back after disconnecting electrical connection from wall socket. If the belt "gives" more than half an inch, you have to loosen the motor bolts and push motor upwards, then tighten the bolts very well. Try spin only to check, before closing the behind. It shd spin very fast.
