My xerox 7132 machine is giving error code 093.311. Waht could be the problem


There are two silver "patches" on the transfer belt which can be seen by removing the fuser assembly. It is easy, just open the left side cover and unscrew two beige/yellow screws and pull apart the fuser (HOT!)

Transfer belt is a brown wide (VCR tape colored) belt. If you open the front door and turn the beige handle 90 degrees, it loosens the belt and you may little by little turn the belt from the left side. You will see the silver square sticker patches on the belt's front side.

Unfortunately, if they are scratched or worn away you can not replace them by yourself (unless you're a very clever person)

How to replace a drive belt


The drive belt (or belts) of a washing machine may become worn or damaged, causing noisy operation or stopping the washer entirely. A damaged drive belt is easy to replace. Remove the back panel of the washer to gain access to the belt. To remove the belt:

- Loosen the bolt on the motor bracket and move the motor to put slack in the belt.

- Remove the old belt and stretch a new one into place on the pulleys.

- To put tension on the new belt, use a hammer handle or a short pry bar to push the motor into position while you tighten the bolt in the adjustable bracket. The belt should have about 1/2 inch deflection when you press on it at the center point, midway between the pulleys. If the belt is too loose, it will slip on the pulleys, causing the machine to malfunction. If the belt is too tight, it will wear very quickly and will probably become so hot that it will start to smoke or smell.

Hot point TCM570 tumble dryer drum not turning?


You do need to replace the belt. The one with slack is the one that belongs where you think it looks like it was.

Hot point dryer drum wont spin-gets hot though model DLB2450BELWH


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
Sounds like your problem may be a broken belt, or the belt may have slipped off of the motor pulley, or idler arm pulley.
If you have to replace your drum belt and if you have a front loading machine.
Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer.
Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch.
Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the machine, this will expose the belt and drum, remove
the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket
with pulley, and motor with pulley.
Pay attention to the route of the belt,this will come in handy when you go
to reinstall the belt and drum.
Sometimes the belt will slip off of the idler arm or motor causing the drum
not to turn.
While you have the drum out, I would recommend that you lubricate the drum
rollers at the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil like 3
in One oil. This will save you a problem later with the rollers getting
noisy, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots
on them this will cause a noise like a thumping type noise.
You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.

Why won't the Kenmore top loading washing machine agitate?


There are two types of Kenmore top loading washing machines. The direct drive models and the belt drive models. Direct drive models do not have a back access panel and the water inlet valve is located on the left side viewed from the rear while belt drive models do have back access panel and the water inlet valve is located on the right side viewed from the rear.

The most common problem causing a top loading machine not to agitate, particularly when the motor seems running, is a broken motor coupler for direct drive models and a broken or worn out drive belt for belt drive models.

The best way to exactly determine the cause is to access the drive motor. Open the back access panel for belt drive models and check the drive belt. Check the drive motor if it is running, humming or stuck.

Please indicate the model number of the washing machine if it is a direct drive model for the procedure in accessing drive motor.

My xbox 360 disc tray driver wont open


This is a common fault on SAMSUNG dvd drives in the xbox and xbox 360. you need to strip down the machine and replace the belt which is connected to a motor and the drive wheels. this happens when the belt has worn to a point its stretched too far and slips when the drive is trying to open.
