My treadmill belt is jerking at speeds higher than 3. I have tightened the belt until its almost hard to tighten. I checked the drive belt and its okay. Why still jerking?


It may be counter-intuitive, but try reducing the tension. Although it is possible the belt is worn, it is more likely the belt is too tight and that is contributing to the slippage. It should be loose. The general "rule of thumb" I have seen in the literature is being able to comfortable slip 2 fingers under the belt on both sides.

Kia sportage 2007 sputters when I drive jerks and this am as I tried to speed up it didn't seem to want to shift up just reving ??!! I changed allready pump belts and do many other parts what could it be ?...


sputters in the context if engine, means MISFIRING, is it?

for a transmission, they dont sputter. sorry

but can jerk, or snatch, (being caused by gears engaging way to late)

(aka, harsh shifting) the opposite of slip

but it can slip then engage, causes a jerk. or harsh shifting.

see?

they do 100 things wrong, mostly never to sputter.

they don\'t shift up or down

they slip. (bad tranny)

if engine sputters, its tune up time, (posted like 10,000 times here)

if the transmission has issues, have real mech test it and tell you

all the symptoms, and possible ideas.

why not?

the A/T is a very very complex electro /mechanical device.



sputter is a word best for engines. like chain saw with a bad spark plug it sputters along and stalls.

does your car stall?

Washer does not spin.... after water loads the drum jerks in one direction an inch or so and a short time later it jerks in the opposite direction....A repair man (which we can't afford right now) turned...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

I don't think this is the same problem. I suspect the drain motor filter was blocked before- that is at the front behind the kick panel, some machines on the left, some on the right.

This sounds very much like the belt is slipping, hence it attempts to turn the drum, slips whilst the motor is going in one direction then manages to grip for a second or so in the other direction then slips again.

Why pay an expensive technician! That's one reason for this forum- to help people with solutions for free! Belts are not expensive- sorry I do not know how much yours would cost- and are easy to be changed by a competent person:-

REMOVE POWER FROM THE MACHINE AND REMOVE THE BACK.

The motor support bolts should be loosened and the old belt removed. Often putting the new belt on is a bit of a struggle, even with the motor 'loose', because it is new and smaller!
Once on it should be tensioned by pulling the motor against the belt firmly- but not over tight- and the motor support bolts tightened.
ON NO ACCOUNT SHOULD ANY FORM OF LEVERAGE BE USED TO TENSION THE BELT. THAT COULD LEAD TO DAMAGE TO THE BELT, MOTOR AND BEARINGS- EXPENSIVE!

Hope this is your problem solved.

Good luck,

John C

My 2007 42" troybilt riding mower jerks in forward.


Inspect your drive belt. You could have some bad spots in the belt. A new belt will probably solve your problems. Also check your pulleys for any oil on them that would cause slipping.
Let me know if this helps.
thanks
