Question about Mtd 22" White Outdoor Self Propelled High Wheel Mower
I have a White Outdoor series 650 21" cut and the drive belt keeps breaking. It is in Indonesia. The original lasted only a few months and I have not been able to get original ones, so I have been replacing the belt with automotive belts (size is 11A0800), and they don't last.
I guess that the problem is overheating of the belt when the "clutch" is pulled in to stop it. But maybe it is something else.
Full description is White Outdoor series 650 21" cut, side discharge rear bag, bought July 06. 173cc engine.
If it's a briggs engine, sounds like you have water / debris in your carb fuel bowl. Using spray carb cleaner will only work if you remove the bowl and clean the carb jets. Also, you could have water in the gas tank as well. First, remove your air filter, then remove the 3 screws that attach your filter bracket to your carburator and mower. Take off your fuel line at the carb and drain all your gas into a clear jar. If it looks very yellow, cloudy, or see water in the bottom of the jug, change your gas. Using a half inch socket wrench, after gas line is disconnected, remove the fuel bowl and clean with carb cleaner. Also, examine the bolt you just removed. There are 2 jets in the side and one at the end. Using the carb cleaner, make sure they are clean as well. Use the carb cleaner extension tube to spray up inside the bottom center of the carb, where the bolt threads, to clean that area as well. After all this make sure ur float assembly is intact and reassemblt the bowl to the carb and reattach the the fuel line. finish bt reattaching the air filter support bracket makinf sure the gasket between the carb and the bracket isn't damaged.

The rule of thumb for the routing of the mower belts is to make sure the "V" inside of belt is fitted into your pulleys. The "FLAT SIDE" outside of the belts rides with the flat side up against your idlers (lookes kinda like a pulley but is wider.) It might take you a couple of attempts to get it right. When the belt is on properly it will be nice and snug.
