Bremshey (Tunturi) Orbit Control S elliptical belt alignment

The belt keeps easing over to the inside edge of the pulley and rubbing against the tension bar, shaving rubber while increasing noise and resistance. The belt was replaced under warranty by a certified technician due to this problem but now after a few years of storage it is happening again. The axle bearing apparently has enough play to cause this problem on the down-stroke, and the pulley lacks a tapered inside lip to prevent movement beyond the inner rib. If no one has a solution, I will try to find a snap-ring large enough to slot in there.

    A single 1-3/8" (ID) snap ring on the innermost rib did the trick!

Pro form 6.0 elliptical belt keeps running to side of pulleys and making a grinding noise. This creates more tension. How can I track the belt?

There is an adjustment under the machine for the rollers, use that to align the belt to run correctly.

Belt keeps breaking when put a new one on that controls aternator,water pump,etc on my 1995 Nissan pick up truck

if it keeps breaking you either have atension or alignment problem. Alignment will show on the edges of the belt and you should be able to catch a bit of burnt rubber smell on the belt. Unless you have done major work orpulled something thatbwould have moved a pulley my bet would be on tension. on a serpintine belt there is atensioning pulley and these do wear out. When the tension is out the belt can slap and break

Relacing the belt on my cplc 7060v compressor it is a groved belt my question is it tends to want to walk off the pump pully, is there a proceedure to properly allign the new belt and tighten it with...

hi kbarna12776.
To align the two pulley to prevent "walk off" use a straight edge tool and square to make sure the two pulleys are in alinement.
You will start by putting the straight edge tool against the two pulleys and check the straight alignment, and the square.
You will normally adjust the motor to square the pulleys.
The compressor and its pulley stays locked in place.
You may have to use metal spacers under the motor to acheive this alignment.
The proper belt tension on the belt will be when you tighten the belt to where when you push down on the belt with one of your fingers or your thumb and you can only deflect the belt approx. 3/4 inch.
When you have the motor and pulleys aligned and the belt adjusted you will be good to go.
Please take time to rate me highly

Could be that the belt is sliding against the wall of the wheel (against the ridge/lip). This is because your wheel is probably not level. This is usualy caused by wear, or because the wheel was moved or adjusted on purpose and not levelled or aligned correctly.

A 1: If your wheel is not level, the belt going around the wheel will inevitably migrate towards the edge of the wheel stand in front of the machine and look straight down at the wheel while it is motion (spinning), you should be able to see if it (the belt) is moving.

If, however your wheel is bent, this could cause the same problem. However, this is no quick fix. It will generally mean replacing the wheel

A 2: In order to recognize if your wheel is bent, stand in front of the machine and look straight down at the wheel while it is in motion. You should be able to see a, "Wobbling" in the wheel, indicating its condition.

My 93 grand voyager keeps kicking off the serpintine belt right after I start it, what can cause this?

hi either the belt is stretched and needs replacing or one of the pulley's are out of alignment either due to wear or just loose, check the pulley's on the engine to see if this is the problem, you also can get a straight edge and hold it against the pulley's and seeing if anything is out, just give them a pull up and down to see if they are loose...hope this helps
