Question about Husqvarna Garden

Open Question

I've replaced HUCTH160D drive V-belt with correct part 165632 110" original part. Mower works but I get belt burning smell after a few minutes. When I check underneath the guide first back from the front on the right side has come off its guide. I'm wondering if there is a part missing as that guide is different from the others and just seems to be a wheel with rough surface not a proper plastic guide wheel like the rest. Has something fallen off the mower perhaps? Also I need a new steering rod and ball joint and I can't find CTH160 in the partstree.com site - is it because I'm in the UK?

SOURCE: My Sears 917.272911 Lawn Tractor is eating mower drive belts

There's a couple of things that could be causing this. First, make sure the idler pulleys and blade pulleys spin freely. Second make sure the belt is behind the belt keepers on the two idler pulleys. There is only one on the left idler, but TWO on the right idler. I suspect that is your problem. Anyway, once the belt is on, engage the blades, with engine OFF, and inspect the belt routing, making sure it's not over or under something it shouldn't be.

SOURCE: Mower Belt Won't Engage

The fact is that belts don't stretch. They wear down on the sides, causing them to ride deeper in the pulleys and they APPEAR to be longer. Check belt "width" to see if it is less than one half inch. Most craftsman riders use half-inch (AKA: "A section") belts.

Why burning belt on 48" Craftsman riding mower


Since you mentioned "48-inch riding mower" let's assume your question is about the mower deck and not the overall mower or its main drive belt (if manual shift-on-the-fly model). If the belt burns that means it is running but slipping against something; or that the drive sheave us turning against an impeded belt. In the first case the belt will be burned along its length; in the second the burning will be occuring in one location(s) along the belt. In any case of belt slippage, check first that all tensioners (springs) are properly in place and not broken or fatigued and in need of replacement. The only other thing would be resistance to belt running, such as:
blade blockage; blade rotor resistance from lack of grease or ruined bearing in need of replacment; grass clogging on deck underside or under blade drive pulley on deck top side; a pully sheave out of round; an obstacle between belt and sheave that is preventing free turn of sheave and belt run; misrouted belt; an overstretched belt that cannot be sufficiently tensioned. Inspect and correct or replace as needed.

Burnt rubber smell when vacuuming


This could be a few things:

A. If your model has a floor selector switch (Bare floor/tools - Carpet) your clutch could be worn. (there is a rubber clutch pad between your cam and roller shell) - Fix would be to replace the clutch pad and belt.

B. If you don't have one of the above models, your belt could be stretched. The belt slipping could cause a rubber burning smell. Fix - Change belt.

C. Have you got any new carpet you are vacuuming or have you moved? Some of the newer style frieze carpets can cause burning rubber smell. The fibers of the carpet are longer and cause the brush to slow down causing the belt to burn. (Imagine brushing long hair with a thick brush, the hair easily gets tangled in the brush, same effect with this carpet.) Some of the newer rugs can do this as well. Some newer carpets with the thicker felt backing and/or the "pet padding" under the carpet can too. it doesn't allow enough air to flow through causing the cleaner head to seal itself to the carpet causing a burning smell. The fix is Move to another home, replace your carpets or replace your vacuum. The vacuum is the cheaper option but be cautious as most vacuums now do this with these carpets. We have had really good response from customers using the Simplicity Tandem Air models, (Synchrony and Synergy models.)

Hope this helps, if you need to talk further feel free to contact me.

My kitchenaid washer has a burning smell


Hi, a slipping or severed belt will produce a burned rubber smell. A belt supports the drum and ensures its smooth movement. If it wears, the drum's movements weaken and finally come to an abrupt halt. In addition, a slipped or severed belt usually produces a burned rubber smell. Refer to the washing machine manual to review how to locate the belt. If the belt is no longer around the drum's center, shift the belt back to its original position. If rubber fibers are discernible or cracks are apparent, change out the worn belt for a new one.

Thank you.

How do I change the drive belt on a 7021r mower? The drive will move the mower on pavement but not on the grass


First, you need to make sure you have the right tools for the job. You'll need a wrench, work gloves, mower blade clamp, drain pan and fresh fuel. Check your owner's manual for the correct belt to your specific lawn mower. Belts that are not specifically designed for your mower will not fit properly and may wear down prematurely. Next, remove the spark plug wire. This is a safety precaution to prevent the mower from accidentally starting.
Now you can remove the screws that secure the drive cover to the mower deck. Once you've taken off the drive cover, loosen the screw that holds the belt tension spring to the transmission. As the screw is loosened, tension on the belt is released allowing you to remove the belt off of the front transmission pulley.
At this point you'll need to turn your mower on its side to take off the mower blade. Be sure to use a work glove to protect your hand when removing the mower blade. You can use a lawn mower blade clamp over the blade to secure it. Unscrew the bolt to remove the blade and then the engine baffle. Once the pulley unit is exposed, you can remove the entire drive belt. Insert the new drive belt and place one end on the rear pulley and re-attach the engine baffle. Then, place the mower blade back (making sure it's facing the correct way with bottom of the blade facing the ground) and tighten the bolt. Remove the clamp and return the mower to its upright position so you can place the other end of the belt to the front pulley. Remember to tighten the screw to the tension spring.
Put the front drive cover back on, tighten the screw that secures the cover to the deck and reconnect the spark plug wire. Add new fuel to your mower and you're done!

MY DRYER VIBRATES VERY BADLY, THE CLOTHES STILL SPIN BUT THE WHOLE UNIT MOVES ALOT AND AFTER A FEW MINUTS IT STARTS TO SMELL LIKE SOMETHING IS BURNING.


This sounds like the rubbing strips at the front of the dryer are badly worn and/or the rear bearing is worn. From your description - the drum is sticking - causing the motor to slip on the belt - causing the burning smell.
Replace worn parts including the drive belt.

I replaced both belts on my washer. Last night I smelled burning rubber. Today the cycle will fill, and spin yet will not agitate. What should I do ?


The pump belt has to be adjusted correctly or the drive belt will slip. If it already slipped enough to burn the new belt, you will probably need another drive belt.

MTD Lawn Tractor problem


The front belt should be a 954-0280A, rear 954-0370. When you go to higher gears, the front belt should be getting tighter as the vari-speed pulley is moving further back. Remove the shift plate, put the transmission in neutral. Start the engine, put speed selector in highest gear and slowly let out on the clutch. You should be able to see what the problem is. It will do everything the same as if were in gear, except move. Make sure you have the correct belts.

BELT ADJUSTMENT


There is an idler pulley near the drive pulley under the engine. It is made of plastic and is a common failure. It freezes up and doesn't want to let the belt move. Have you noticed the smell of hot/burning plastic? You can replace it with an original, but it is still plastic. Metal replacements can be had. I think I got some from mcmaster.com so try there. They are a great resource. Shipping is fast and inexpensive and they have everything a guy could want.
