Loose sanding belt
Hi, Consult your user manual for the instructions to install a new belt. Follow these instructions selectively to tighten the belt tension. Here they are....
CHANGING DRIVE BELT
Using a phillips head screwdriver, remove the two screws
in the center of the pulley cover.
Remove the cover.
Raise sanding belt to the vertical sanding position.
Next, loosen the hex head set screw. Raising the motor
pulley releases the belt tension.
Remove the old drive belt.
Fit the new drive belt on the drive pulley first and then on
the motor pulley.
Test belt tension by squeezing the belt with your fingers.
Adjust the belt tension with the hex head set screw until
there is about 1/4 in. (6 mm) of give.
Tighten the belt tension nut securely.
Note: Excessive tightness on the drive belt may cause
increased noise and overload the motor. Excessive
looseness on the drive belt may cause the drive belt to
fail prematurely and make a severe chattering noise.
Using a phillips head screwdriver, reinstall the pulley cover
and the two phillips head screws. Tighten securely.
Good Luck! Middles
