Need to replace drive belt.

I need to replace the drive belt but can't figure out how to get the cover off after removing all the visible screws. It seems there is something holding it together under the fan but it won't slide out after removing the c-clip it comes half way out then stops.

    This is for a Craftsman model 315.11750 belt sander

  • Anonymous May 05, 2009

    I am also having the same problem. There is a screw buried under the dust fan. I called Sears Service and they were useless.
    You can not read the drawing on line. It is a nice sander and I would hate to throw it away.

    I found a breakdown for the tool but it is so terrible I cant read it, You might want to go to Searspartsdirect.com and ask them to send you a schematic that you can read. Generally there are a couple screws hodling the side cover in place but again with the lousy photo I saw I can't tell what else might be involved, good luck

The fan impeller is held on the shaft by a set screw. the movement you are experiencing is the shaft disengaging from the drive area. mtnmark3400@att.net

How to remove belts from 1994 dodge caravan 2.5 liter


Drive Belts

Print


INSPECTION

See Figures 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5
Check the condition and tension of all drive belts every 12,000 miles, or at least once a year. Loose drive belts can lead to poor engine cooling and diminished alternator, power steering pump, air conditioning compressor, or emission air pump output. A belt that is too tight places a strain on the bearings in the driven component.

Fig. Fig. 1: There are typically 3 types of accessory drive belts found on vehicles today

Fig. Fig. 2: An example of a healthy drive belt


0900c15280215ae6.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif

Fig. Fig. 3: Deep cracks in this belt will cause flex, building up heat that will eventually lead to belt failure


0900c15280215ae7.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif

Fig. Fig. 4: The cover of this belt is worn, exposing the critical reinforcing cords to excessive wear


0900c15280215ae8.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif

Fig. Fig. 5: Installing too wide a belt can result in serious belt wear and/or breakage
Replace any drive belt that is glazed, worn, cracked, or stretched to the point where correct adjustment tension is impossible. If two belts are used to drive a component, always replace both belts when replacement is necessary. After installing a new belt, run the engine for ten minutes, shut OFF the engine and recheck the belt tension. Readjust if necessary.


ADJUSTMENT

See Figures 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10

Fig. Fig. 10: Engine belt tension chart-1994-95 models
Two popular methods of checking drive belt adjustment are; the Belt Tension Gauge Method and the Belt Deflection Method. The former requires a special gauge and the latter requires a straight edge and scale or just a good eye for measurement. The deflection method will be used in the following belt replacement instructions. A rule of thumb for checking belt tension by the deflection method is to determine the midpoint between two pulleys of the drive belt and press down at that point with moderate thumb pressure. The belt should deflect to the measurement indicated in the following installation procedures. Adjustment is necessary if the belt is either too loose or too tight.

WARNING A belt adjustment which is either too loose or too tight will eventually damage the accessory that belt is driving. A too loose adjustment allows free-play in the belt which could transfer a whipping motion or shock to the accessory drive pulley. Similarly, a belt which is too tight will preload the accessory bearings, leading to early failure.


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

See Figure 11
Raise the front of the vehicle, support on jackstands and remove the lower splash shield if access is hampered due to space limitations when changing drive belts.

Need to replace belt and cannot figure how to take it apart to get at the belt --- Took Screws off on the bottom but could not get to the belt


You have already removed the screws so lift the brush cover off. Then grasp rotating floor brush at both ends and lift. Clean strings,hair and other debris from rotating brush, paying close attention to the brush ends. Clean the debris from motor pulley and drive belt areas.Grasp old drive belt and remove from motor pulley. Place new drive belt over motor pulley and stretch other end over rotating floor brush in the space between the bristles. Place the ends of the rotating floor brush down into slots on the sides. Turn the rotating floor brush by hand several times in the direction of motor pulley. If installed properly, drive belt will center itself on rotating brush. Reposition brush cover and screw back into place. I hope that this helps you!

I have a Sharp VZ 2500. The drive belt lies in pieces at the bottom of the player, so I can assume it needs replacing. I've bought the belt, but have no idea where it goes. Can you help?


you have to remove the front cover first. then detach the two wire connectors attached to the turntable circutry. Also detach the pushbutton pannel. remove the two screws that fix the top plastic cover inside the turtable housing. then the two big screws that fix the turntable to the main body will be visible. remove them and you can detach the turtable unit out. then remove the circuit board behind the turntable. you can then put the belt between the big disc and the motor pulley on the corner. Good luck

HOW DO I CHANGE THE BELT ON THE FANTOM® THUNDER® AND FURY®? a.gif fantombeltchange1.jpg
fantombeltchange2.jpg
fantombeltchange3.jpg
  1. Unplug the machine.
  2. From the front of the machine, remove the collection bin.
  3. Facing the back of your vacuum, remove each of the Philips head screws located above each of the rear wheels. (Figure 1)
  4. To remove the base cover, place your thumbs in the two screw holes in the back of the machine. Push forward and up on the screw holes to disengage the 3 cover locking tabs. Put the cover off to one side, and go to the front of the machine. (Figure 2)
  5. Check the drive arm for any black streaks which indicate residual rubber from the last belt. The drive arm is located on the right side of the motor. The easiest way to remove any residual rubber is with some nail polish remover on a rag or with steel wool.
  6. To attach a new belt, remove the brush from the base of the machine by pulling up straight up with two hands.
  7. Take the new belt and hook it over the steel drive arm. Pull back on the belt slightly, to create some tension.
  8. Put the brush inside the belt loop so that the track for the belt is aligned with the belt itself.
  9. Replace the brush by aligning the metal end so the points face downward. (Figure 3)
  10. Rotate the brush by hand to check that the belt is running freely and easily in its designated space between the bristle.
  11. Replace the cover by placing the nose in first. Once in place fasten with the two cover screws and then replace the collection bin.
