Drum stopped spinning - Belt has come off - Wheel/drum stiff, no rotation. How to Fixya? Hotpoint IPX4 - 1669200001 - Grateful for any help / advice *********** - Cheers


You can do the repairs yourself, however be aware if the fact, the shroud surrounding the drum was stamped out from a sheet of metal and it has extremely SHARP edges that can slice your had or wrist wide open. Safety First. You must remove the rear panel and expose the back of the drum. Remove the spent belt and stretch a new one over the pulley wheels. Rest the drum shaft into the rotational collar on the back panel and fasten all screws tight in place.

2001 chevy Malibu belt slipping off, put it back on and it slipped off again. It's like something isn't spinning right.


Since the belt is off already check all pulleys if they spin freely. Check with the engine OFF, all pulleys should spin freely except the crank (big one at the bottom). If everything is spinning smoothly check the belt tensioner if it still has decent spring pressure to keep tension on the belt

Blade keeps slipping off.cant be put back on without spending 15+ minutes and a cut hand. Is there an easy way


There should be an adjusting knob to tip the upper wheel back and forth till you get it right to keep the blade tracking. This is similar in function to a belt sander adjustment.

To put the blade back on release the tension and carefully thread it though , wind the wheels manually, and gently guide it back in place, then reapply the tension.

Belt keeps coming off


Hi There,
Most likely 1 of 3 problems.
1. The belt is stretched and so is just slipping off
Solution change the belt
2. THe brush roller has siezed bearings so brush cant turn properly so belt is slipping off the shaft.
Solution - check see if roller turns easily by hand if not change the bearings.
3. THe motor has twisted in its body due to cracked housing or worn rubber seats.
Solution- Depending on your skill and age of vacuum replace the housing or the vacuum.

The serpentine belt on my 1984 Buick Lesabre keeps breaking when turn on air conditioner or heater why?


Most likely you have a seized AC compressor. When you ask for AC or heat the AC clutch engages with the pulley wheel that normally spins freely when the AC is off. As the pulley wheel is no longer able to turn because of the seized compressor the belt will either slip or snap.

Hotpoint WML540 stops mid cycle, end of rinse going onto spin. Key lock light flashes, it also makes a banging sound as though washing trainers and then there are some clicking sounds before it stops. If...


maybe the concrete balancing weight has come loose and the fact that most of the water has been drained off when you turn it off for 10 seconds it does not have the one-sided affect anymore also check the damping springs as one may have come off in the violent spin eric

While using my Nordictrack a2550 this morning, the walking belt began to slip very badly. I checked the alignment and adjusted the tension of the belt as per the user's manual but the belt stills slip...


if it really is the walking belt that is slipping keep tightening the adjustment screws till the belt will not slip when you try to stop it ( set speed to about 3 and then with your foot try to stop belt from spinning - you should be able to make the motor and whole machine come to a stop ) make sure it is really walk belt spinning and it isnt the motor belt slipping. (if it is motor belt slipping when you try to do the stop the belt trick i just described you will see the walk belt and front roller stop but still hear the motor turning) once you get walk belt tight enough so it doesnt slip then you can worry about keeping the belt centered.

let me know if you need more help on this and let me know how the stop the belt test went

good luck!
