I have a BT3100 saw, and it is a good tool, but does require attention in maintenance procedures, but Ryobi did outline the necessary steps in their manuals. The above website also has the owner manual if you need one.
Remove the blade
Lower mechanism all the way to the bottom
Flip over saw and lay on it's top
Remove the blade guard panel opposite the motor
Unbolt the motor assembly and remove the belt cover
Replace the broken belts
Re-assemble (be careful not to cross-thread the bolts in the aluminum housings!)
