My typewriter hums but nothing happens...seems like the motor is jammed...


The humming is probably the motor turning but the drive belt may be broken. You would need a qualified technician to replace the belt if necessary.

Belt broken


Appliance stores, or appliance parts stores.
If you wish, you can also buy online at "Sears Parts".
If you will type in "appliance parts" or "Sears parts", many , many places sell these, and you can order them.
You will only need your model number in most cases.

Hey there i got a broken belt from old kenmore dryer model i dont see what model is it but i found a piece of paper with a part no. i dont know i u can gimme a good awnser also i find the paten number


You're really going to need the model number of the dryer to determine if the piece of paper has the part number for the belt that your dryer needs. If you find the model number info - you can go to Sears Parts Direct to check for a replacement (or go to the store).

You may get some help by bringing the belt to a Sears or Kmart store to compare to other belts that they have in stock. The length of the belt isn't super critical as the tension-er pulley can make up for small differences between your old belt and one that is "close".

I hope this helps!
