Check the harmonic balancer. That is the the pulley that is attached to the crankshaft. The outer ring of the pulley, where the belt rides, is pressed onto the hub of the pulley and isolated from it by a rubber bushing that separates the outer ring (belt pulley) from the inner part that is attached to the crankshaft. The rubber will dry out and shrink as it ages and the outer ring will slide in or out (front or back), causing belt misalignment. This can cause stripping and jumping off as it doesn't provide the proper path for the belt. The new balancer is fairly easy to install, and they only cost about $60.00 USD. You need a harmonic balancer puller to remove it, but most auto parts stores will provide a loaner for the DIYer. Here is a picture of the one that goes on your Montana.....
If you break fluid level is correct and your break pedal goes down to the floor means that your master cylinder is going bad and you might loose your breaks completely if not checked or replaced. Your breaking system is down to the last O ring inside the master cylinder, once that rubber O rings goes you will not have any breaks at all. Master cylinders have a number of rubber O rings that work like a plunger or piston that produce pressure within the breaking system. When the first one wears down due to age, your pedal begins to loose break pressure and you have to pump your breaks several times to gain breaking. You are now down to the last rubber O ring and a warning that your master cylinder needs to be checked. You can still use your breaks but only for a few days before the other rubber O ring gives out too. Once both O rings give out you completely loose your breaks.
That wheel that is on the capstan you remove the longer belt from the motor and the lever the capstan flywheel so that you can reach the pulley on the flywheel fit the belt over and the push the capstan back by pushing the little plastics retainer rings back into position. This is a very common mechanism and if you cannot obtain a belt then take your original belt and go to a shop that do hydraulic o ring and get an o ring that is the same size it is NOT necessary to get a square belt as round belts are plenty full and quite cheap I have tape recorders that run more than ten years with o rings
SAME SITUATION, Plastic Ring that water bottle sits on is one piece with two o rings to the probe. Unable to locate and purchase a replacement ring seat probee part. You have any luck. Purchased at Lowes few years ago. Works great. Poor seat designed to fail common problem reported by many.
Have you tried erasing all the (incoming) messages on the machine? Does that let it ring the full 4-ring-cycle before it picks up?
It's been years since I owned one of these, but there should be a switch (on the side of the unit?) for a feature called "toll saver" If you find this, switch it off.
The idea was from the days of payphones -- if the machine had no messages, it would ring 4 times before it picks up. If there were messages, it would pick up after one ring (or sometimes two)
If you were out on the town and wanted to check your messages, you'd put your dime in a payphone and call home. If it rang three times, you can hang up the payphone and get your dime back, knowing there's no message to check.
1) With the phone in standby mode, press the menu/clock key three times. You hear “Ring time” and the current ring time ([2 ], [ 4], [6 ], [T ] Toll saver), and it is displayed on the main base. Then you hear the guidance for setting the ring time.
2) Press the volume/select/ or up or down arrow key until the desired ring time appears.
3) Press the set key to select the new ring time. You hear a confirmation tone, then the announcement “Ring time” followed by the new ring time. After a few seconds, the system announces “To set record time, press menu again.”
