I would check to see if you have an unsecure (loose set screw which pulley in not rotating properly) or defective (bent, broken or unbalanced; unlikely) pulley. Also, ensure your motor is secure (bolts, not loose) and motor-shaft is not bent for some odd reason (very unlikely).

Also, are you sure you're installing the belt correctly per model diagram? Did you take off the pulley to install belt?

I have nordictrack A2105 and although we "oiled" the belt and replaced motor belt, it still slips. What are we doing wrong?


remove the hood. Turn the treadmill on to speed of 4 or 5 and straddle the walk belt. While the treadmill is running (with good shoes on) step hard on the walkbelt while observing the motor belt and front roller belt pulley. Does just the belt or front roller stop? if so the belt is loose. If the belt does not stop check to see if the front roller stops and the front roller pulley keeps going. If so the front roller pulley is slipping on the roller. If the belt, pulley and front roller are all moving and the walkbelt is the only thing that stops when stepped on then the walk belt is loose. To repair a slipping front roller you have 2 options: 1) purchase a new roller assy or 2) loosen the motor belt and push it to off to the side of the front roller pulley (no needto remove). Realign the roller pulley to the motor pulley. You may have to tap it into alignment. On the inside section of the grooved part of the pulley drill an 1/8" hole thru the pulley and thru the roller housing. (If you drill to the outside portion of the pulley on the left hand side you will hit the roller bearing. Now take a larger drill bit like a 3/8" and lightly countersink the plastic pulley - try not to drill thru the pulley with the larger bit. Using a thin head sheetmetal screw, install the screw so the head is just below the ribbed surface of pulley. If you screw up your first attempt just rotate everything 90° and try again.

I have a dodge dynasty 1990 i replaced my serpentine belt now it wont stay on need to replace my tensioner pully how do i do it?


undo the big nut in front of the pulley. release the tension on the belt by adjusting the small bolt at the rear of the adjuster bracket . Take the nut of the shaft and pull the pulley off. Remember where the spacer goes at the back of the pulley.

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

It sounds like the spring in my washer has broken. It made a loud sound during a cycle and now the basket is completely off balance and barely moves. I was wondering if the spring is worth fixing or if...


This could be an easy fix if the counter weight came loose from the top of the tub shell which is a common problem. Pull the unit out from the wall and removed the back panel to inspect the counter weight, spider pulley and belt. If the counter weight is not broke you can reattach it to tub shell and retighten the bolts. If it is broke it is about $30.00 plus shipping. Inspect the spider pulley which is attached to the tub with the belt around it. If it is not broken, you can turn the pulley by hand to check the tub bearings for free movement. Make sure the belt is in good shape and attached to the motor spindle and spider pulley. If the spider pulley is broken you may have to order a new pulley. If you have to remove the spider pulley you may want to use a gear puller from an auto parts store to remove the pulley. The belt is easily replaced once you know the below procedure:

1. Place the belt around the center of the motor pulley stretching the belt to the spider pulley leaving no slack in the belt.

2. Keeping the slack out of the belt, place the belt on the outside rim of the spider pulley as much as the belt tension will allow you to do so.

3. Keep the tension on the belt and slowly rotate the spider pulley counter clockwise until the belt is completely on the spider pulley.

Rotate the spider pulley several times to make sure the belt stays in the center of the spider pulley. If the belt is not centered after several revolutions you need to remove the belt and reinstall it after moving the ribs of the belt on the motor pulley in the direction which centers the belt. If it was my unit I would fix it unless you have to replace the outer tub shell (approximately $300.00 for parts only).

What stops the drive belt coming off its pulley?.


Hi, The belt is held to the motor by a series of grooves and then around the big pulley. If everything is in alignment, the belt stays centered on the pulley. If the pulley becomes loose or the bearing shaft it rides on go bad, the belt will not stay on and it needs to be seriviced. Hope this helps.

i would say you have a warped main pulley, run the machine in spin,watch it early to detect any wobling in the belt should be no sideway movement. also check main pulley is tight with no lateral wobling.

Without the belt do all the pulleys turn easy. Power steering, water pump, alternator, and tensioner pulley. There is probably only one way the belt will stay on but make sure you have the smooth side to the smooth pulley and the grooved side to the grooved pulleys. See if any of the pulleys have and wiggle in them.
