Turns on and can hear the motor going, but no movement

Have had this for a few years, but used very very little. Could there be a rubber belt that has broken or slipped off? A website or manual online on how/where to check that part out would be very useful.

Without make and models number can't get a manual, but it should be easy to check. Just need to remove the motor cover, (the one by your feet) there should be screws around it (3-6) then jiggle the cover it should come loose, if it does check for more screws, sometimes they put screws in from below. Once off the belt should be obvious, look at the end of the motor. (the other end)

Where can I find drive belt for rca rs-9150a (opens the cd door)

I have had this unit for a number of years. Can't find the original drive belt so I've been using rubber bands. They work for a while till they dry rot. If you're doing the job yourself, go to a hardware store and get an assortment of rubber O-rings for plumbing. A little tricky to get one on the gears but I put one in a few months ago and so far it's outlasting a rubber band.

A little bad news is in order!
Your problem is mostly the channels the window is riding in. When vehicles get over 10 years old, the rubber deteriorates all over the place
.For example, the inside and outside rubber window wipers of the door glasses begin to get hard and crack. As the various parts that move the glass also begin to wear, the electric motor gets weaker, and the window regulator begins to wear also.
There are a few fixes.
Cheapest is to lubricate the window channel. I use silicone spray, depending on the outside air temperature what you should use. The colder it gets where you live, the less options you will find in the winter.
A new window motor and/or regulator might help. The rubber & felt channels are available, but are really hard to install. You have to tear the door all apart to do so.
J.C. Whitney out of Chicago sells the channels, I don't know if they'll fit or not.
If you do all this, and everything turns out like a new car, you may well qualify to work in a body shop!

Hi there. I have lexus rx300. A few days ago the brake light been going on and off when driving. So i took it to the dealer, then they only said the brake fluid was low, but if it happens again then we...

If the fluid level is again low, you are losing it; if not, the level sensor is likely bad. Lost fluid indicates a failed master or slave cylinder at one of the wheels. The squealing you are hearing isn't likely from the brakes but from a belt that needs replacement or at least tightened; the fact that is squeals when starting and in turns, indicates that the steering pump being driven by that belt is slipping a little under the stress of making turns. This often goes away once the engine room is warmed up since the belt rubber gains a little grip when warm which stops the squealing.

My Kenmore washing machine is 19 years old...Love it! But all of a sudden it fills up but won't agitate or spin, but will drain. I can hear the sound of the motor like as if it's spinning, but no...

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. Check your belt first. The transmission may be bad. It may be the motor coupler. The only way to know for sure is checking it out. Are you able to run a few test?

After 14 years my Technics SL-BD22 Turntable has a disfunction The electric motor turns slow.

Your turntable is probably belt driven so most likely motor is turning okay but belt is slipping.
They are easy to change, first just lift rubber mat on platter and you should be able to see the belt through a access hole in the platter.

That means that the belt is stretched and it is slipping on the motor shaft, that is why it is hot and smells like burning rubber. You need to replace the belt. Here is the correct belt you need:

Belt on nordic track exp 1000 not moving today but worked this week. machine turns on though

if you hear the motor moving with no belt turning the problem is either the front roller or the drive belt. If there is no motor movement then this is usually an indication of a bad control board located under the lower section of the treadmill.

My dryer is giving off a strong odor. Smells a little like rubber or metal on metal. It still works great. Is still getting hot and drying clothes. Can you help?

A few things could be going on here. If you are hearing metal on metal sound I would start with the blower wheel itself. Sounds like it either came loose from the motor shaft or it's broke. Other things could be a bad drum roller that has frozen up causing the rubber smell. Your idler pulley could be frozen up and the belt is slipping on the drum. Go to this link and post your model number to get a breakdown of your dryer. It wil show the areas I mentioned. back.
