Main belt from motor to main driveshaft broke

How do you replace the main belt from the motor to the driveshaft? Is there a [magic] break in the shaft to slip the new belt on?

Thank you

I have a old lawn keeper edger with a briggs and stratton 2 hp engine. It has always run great but the belt came off and we cant figure out how to get it back on. Can anyone help with that?


If the belt just came off, it should be fairly easy to refit back on its pulleys. Use the largest pulley to assist in pulling the belt on by turning the pulley by hand. If the belt has broken, you may have to remove 1 of the drive shafts to slide the new belt over. I had a B and S powered mower which broke a belt and I had to strip off the end of the mower and unbolt the main drive shaft to slide the belt down. took me about an hour and a half. Glad they don't break too often. Ive heard of others who unbolt the motor and disconnect the clutch drive to fit a new belt. have a good look at the unit to see whats easiest.

The bristles aren't rotating. Is there an easy solution to this?


The belt probably broke. Simply purchase another belt and replace. These belts are made for much stress, and if you've had the vacuum for even a month, they can easily break.
It may also have slipped off the motor shaft, causing the brush to spin freely.

DK697100AV 2-gallon air compressor. Doesn't turn on at all. I opened it up and found a burnt fuse. I replaced it and now the fan turns on but not motor. What do you suggest? Thanks.


I don't believe there is a separate fan motor. The fan is mounted to the main motor shaft. If the fan is running, but the compressor pump is not, the driveshaft is busted. Probably best to toss it.

The belt keeps breaking lately. I've had the


Before putting on the new belt make sure the brush turns freely and nothing is wraped around the bearing ends, if it is not turning free and is clean try a little grease or vasaline on the bearing ends. dont get any on the belt though. check the motor shaft also it should be clean and no residue from the old belts on it. it can be cleaned with rubbing alcohol and a rag, if really caked try a scotch pad .

Agitator not moving


Hi,

Following are the main reasons for the agitator not to move.

Lid switch
If the lid switch is defective, the washing machine may not agitate or function at all. The switch is inside the

washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing

machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

Motor coupler
Many washers produced by Whirlpool® use a small, relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and

is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears

out and fails. If this happens, you need to completely replace it.

Belts
Many washing machines have one or two belts. If a belt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a

genuine belt from the manufacturer. (Some washing machine belts are designed with special characteristics not found

in automotive belts.)

Agitator
The inside of the agitator--where the transmission shaft attaches--can become worn, and strip out the spline that allows the agitator to properly grip the shaft. Then the transmission shaft rotates back and forth as it should, but the agitator doesn't move properly. If this happens, you may need to replace the agitator and/or the transmission spline.

Thanks for contacting Fixya.

The drum on my dryer stopped turning it was heating and it just stopped turning, I just want to get instuctions on how to take it apart.


If your dryer doesn't tumble, check these:

Belt
Motor
Door switch
Belt Dryers have a drive belt that turns the clothes drum. If the belt breaks, the drum stops rotating. Then you need to replace the belt, and often the idler pulley, because the pulley tends to wear out at the same time.

Click here for a belt installation diagram.

Motor If the dryer motor only hums when you press the Start button, the motor may be burned out. Here's how to test the dryer motor:

  • Remove the belt.

  • Check for obstructions in the blower fan housing.

  • Manually rotate the shaft of the motor.

If the motor is very stiff, or impossible to rotate manually, and the blower fan housing is clear, you need to replace the motor.

If the motor rotates freely, run the motor momentarily with the belt removed and the blower in place. If the motor runs fine with the belt removed, there may be a problem with the idler pulley or the clothes drum. Try to rotate the drum by hand. If it is very difficult to move, correct any problem with the rollers or pulley, and then reassemble the dryer and try it again.

If the motor hums but doesn't rotate on its own even with the belt removed--yet you can turn it freely by hand--you usually need to replace the motor or the motor start capacitor.

Door switch Your dryer can't operate at all if the door switch is defective. It's inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

The rubber band that turns the roller on the vacuum keeps breaking. I just bought a new rubber band, put it on, and it broke immediately. Can it be fixed?


Generic problem for all Vacuums
The rubber band that turns

The rubber band that turns the roller on the vacuum keeps breaking. I just bought a new rubber band, put it on, and it broke immediately. Can it be fixed?

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
I see there could be 2 problems – either your revolving brush has hair or thread buildup in the ends of the brushroll of which is causing the belt to break and would need to be cleaned out, or check the bearings on each end – they could be **** as well, or the motor shaft or motor assm is not tuning freely and in that case the motor should be replaced and it is not the belt – one other thing is to make sure the motor is in there securely. Once you get the belt on then roll the pulley and the belt together to make sure the belt is on correctly if the brushroll spins freely.
