I cannot get the yoke to fit around the bodice neckline, what am I doing wrong? Simplicity 1467

Not knowing what item you are sewing, just a guess. Does the body need to be gathered to fit the yoke? You'll have to gather it up until the body piece is the same length as the yoke.

Zanussi fls 1284 - how is it possible to make the right belt fit - I have tried and tried - it will not fit. What can I do?

It is elastic drive belt 1196 J5 which means that 1196 mm is the working length based on the belt mounted on the pulleys. "J" and "H" means shape of the drive belt and finally number after word (J5) means number of teeth (could be: 4,5,6,8) .The length marked on the drive belt (1196,1217,1280 etc.) is the working length based on the belt mounted on the pulleys. For a given working length, the belts - which consist of different materials - have a different degree of elasticity. This means that, when not fitted to the appliance, their lengths may be different. It is normal that the length of a plastic belt not fitted to the pulleys is three or four centimeters greater than that of a rubber belt. Also, both types of elastic drive belt are shorter than the working length and therefore it is a little more difficult to replace but not so much that you have to lossen motor.

Simplicity F3500-- how do I get the bottom off to change the belt?

To change the belt on the Simplicity F3500, unplug the vacuum and turn it upside down. There are two tabs (one on each side) behind the beater bar that hold the cover on the vacuum. Press these tabs inward and lift the bottom plate away from the unit.

Then remove the brushroll and the worn or broken belt from the pulley on the side of the brush roll and the drive shaft. Loop the new belt over the driveshaft and the brushroll. Replace the brushroll in the housing and turn it by hand. Make sure that the belt is seated on the driveshaft and pulley with no twists. Also check that all of the rotating parts will move.

Then put the bottom cover back on by aligning the back hinges and then pressing the plate down until both sides click.

For pictures of the cover removal process, look at page 15 in the manual. The direct link is . Most Simplicity vacuum manuals are available at their support site: .

I hope this helps.

I need to replace my serpateen belt how do i do that?

This label shows the accessory belt routing on a Lumina with a 3.1L engine


  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the drive belt shield.
  3. Fit a 3/8 inch breaker bar or ratchet to the square hole in the tensioner. Lift, or rotate the tensioner off of the drive belt. When the tension on the belt is removed, slide the drive belt from the pulleys.

To install:

  1. Taking care to follow the proper routing of the belt, slip the belt onto the pulleys. As a help, note that the water pump pulley is usually driven from the back (smooth side) of the belt.
  2. Fit a 3/8 -inch breaker bar or ratchet to the square hole in the tensioner. Lift, or rotate the tensioner and, with the belt in place, gently release the tensioner.
  3. Verify that the belt is correctly routed and aligned in the proper grooves of the accessory drive belt pulleys. Inspect the drive belt length scale on the drive belt tensioner for the proper indicated length. If the drive belt length scale does not indicate the proper installed length, the belt may be incorrect, incorrectly installed, worn out or the tensioner may be defective.
  4. Connect the negative battery cable. Start the vehicle and verify correct operation.

How to replace the belt.

Instructions are in the manual, free online here:

Short version: slide the two retaining clips to the center and remove the bottom plate. There's a C-shaped retaining clip at the right end of the roller tray. Remove the clip and lift the roller out. Thread the old belt from around the motor drive shaft, thread the new one in, put it around the roller and replace the roller - belt will stretch enough to let you do this. Put the C-clip back in, replace the bottom plate and go.
