Pulley and wheel are tensioned so smooth wheel side goes against smooth side of belt. Try each slot and use the one that gives tension to the belt. Should have grooves in other side of belt that fit in grooves on motor shaft. May be able to get at it better from back of cabinet.

As soon as i turn on my 360 the disk tray light wont stop blinking and disks wont read


Listen close and see if you hear the tray motor running. If you do then, most likely, the belt and pulleys that move the disk tray are dirty. Which might also explain not being able to read disks. Here's what to do: Pull the face plate off of the 360. This will NOT void your warranty. Beneath the disc tray (look under and "into" the tray) you should see a gear wheel on your left side. Push eject. Use a toothpick (or similar object) to turn that gear from left to right. Keep turning and the tray should pop open. Unplug (WITHOUT turning off) the 360. Pull the disk tray to full extention and look through the slot in the center of it. You'll see the belt and pulleys. Tweeze the belt out small pulley first clean the belt & pullies w/alcohol. Put belt on big pulley first. Then run a lens cleaner disk when you get it opening again.

Dryer belt has come off tensioner.


The idler pulley fits in the slots on the bottom of the cabinet (in front of the motor) with the wheel or glide facing the left side. Place the belt (grooves inward) around the drum. Pull the belt through the middle of the idler pulley from the left side. Once the belt is pulled through the idler pulley, loop it around the motor pulley (this should force the idler pulley to "open up" and add tension).
With the belt and idler pulley in place, it should look like this...

Replacing both Drive belts on toro 832 snowthrower


If you tie both the auger and the drive handles down that will give you enough room to get the belts out, and when you put the new belts on be sure to get the belts inside the belt guides otherwise you'll be replacing them again.
