Could be a dozen things, from some kind of tension device that has failed to mis-alignment or over tightening of the belt.

If you look at the broken belt, does one side of the belt show more wear or shredding than the other?

That is misalignment. If something is locking up, the tension device or spring, it could put enough strain to break a belt.

Another overlooked problem and this one happens all the time, the original belt was the wrong belt, and each time the belt was replaced with the same belt, but the wrong belt.

This is another problem that needs a service call as you could check and check, but it will take someone familiar with alignment or the machine to see if there is a missing guide, wrong or broken tension device, the motor is not aligned putting the pulley out of straight,

Tough but great question, could be solved maybe over the phone, but would need someone on the other end with tools and some mechanical skills.

Also need history of the first break, and age, and how this all progressed.

Need diagram for a poulan xt 30" belt route on deck .Belt keeps breaking shortly after changing I am beginning to think that all the gumballs from the gum trees may breaking it is that possible


Two things first if it just keep breaking..the most probable cause would be the belt on one the spindle or drive pulley " on engine " is routed around most of the pulley then over the belt keeper instead of on the pulley grove..or the keepers are way out of adjustment the keepers have sharp edges on the outside and will tear up a belt in no time...as for the routing most are simple and follow the same procedure,,first look at all the pulleys on the mower deck...there are two kinds the drive and idlers..the drivers are attached to the engine and spindle where the blades and have deep v shape and have on or two belt keepers attached very close on the deck..the others are idlers including the tensioner that engages the belt and keep tension,,they do not have v they are flat with two small right angle edges to keep the belt straight they are designed to ride on the flat back side of the pulley..first detirmine the rotation of the pulleys the starting at the engine drive pulley place the belt in and follow to the first pulley in the direction of mowing all the way around the then operate the engage/disengage lever it will move the engage idler pulley..fit the belt on the flat side the locate others and do the same..you will need to play with it awile but you will find the route...just remember when you do route it look for and adjust the belt keepers..they are there to keep the belt on when running disengaged...you know the results once off the pulley a torn up belt...this is long but i believe if you take your time it will help...good luck.

My car keep on breaks alternator belts and it also makes this loud whistling noise. I've put on a new water pump, 3 alternators and several alternator belts


make sure that the pulleys of all the driven equipment are in alignment and not at a bit of an angle to the axis of the drive belt
To break belts something is not lined up properly or something is not turning freely

What happens if the drive belt breaks


if a drive belt breaks, the debris can interfere with other engine components and do additional damage. rule of thumb belt life is 6yrs or 60000 miles. the belts operate critical engine systems ( alt, water pump, power steering pump) not something to short cut on. belts are noisey when cold due to additional load from battery use when starting or cold fuuids. have belts and tensioners checked for wear and correct operation

Mower drive belt keeps breaking on h5518 honda


They may make a Kevlar belt that fits your mower, which may stop the breaking. But may cost twice the amount of the original belt. Seems like it may be worth it to me?

Timing belt keeps jumping tim 3 times know reset runs good for awhile


You have a bad timing belt tensioner. Stop driving it because you are probably due for a new timing belt also if the tensioner is bad. If the timing belt breaks while you are driving it, serious damage may occur like a valve punching through a piston, bent valve, damaged cam, serious stuff can happen if the timing belt breaks.

Belt for self popelled mower keeps breaking? Cannot keep a new belt on pulley


Check that the pulley isn't seizing up and causing the belt to snap, also be sure you loosen up the self propelled mechanismn by spraying down with WD 40, too much belt tension can cause this, but it rather seems like the belt pulley seizes and the engines drive pulley keeps turning causing the belt to overheat and break or stretch and come flying off.

How do you replace the mower belt on a cub cadet?


check the alignment of the ideler pully to make sure it is even withe the drive pulleys. if not in line it will cause the belt to break. There is a spacer that is on the idler that should be on top and not on the bottom of the pully.
