The belt slips off my Belt Sander

When I operate my belt sander, the belt rides off. I have engaged the lever to tighten the belt. Is there something else I need to do?

All sander will have two adjustments. The first is to release the sanding belt by retracting the position of one of the rollers. The second adjustment moves one of the rollers belt tension from side to side. The roller angular position is changed, sometime by a single knob or screw, and sometimes by two separate adjusting screws.

    ive tried that. i have tighened the knob all the way and the rollers are unchanged. the front roller has a lot of play in it and the belt moves around.

A PTO that is engaged constantly,


On that type PTO engagement there is slack in the belt that disengages the deck, in some case there is a arm with a idler pulley that swings against the belt to tighten it and engages the deck , in other cases like older MTD:s the deck swung backwards as it was let down and tightened the belt and was lifted to turn it off. Most of the decks had a brake of some kind on the deck pulleys to stop freewheeling of the blades when disengaged .

Why don't the blades engage?


Blades Engage via a pully system. Once you move the lever to engage the blades, the belt tightens and the blades engage. It is possible that your belt is broken or has gone out of track with the pulleys. If you know the belt is ok, then it is probably a bearing in one of the blade mounts.

Lever won't engage blades


check to see if a belt came off, it would go from bottom engine pully to deck lever pully then around blade pullys on deck. the pully under neth has to tighten belt to run blades the pully is ether solid to lever or has a cable that moves it make sure cable did not break hope this helps

How do I release the lock on my Craftsman belt sander to lighten the belt. It's an old Model # 315.1172


I checked Searspartsdirect.com for that model number and they listed that number, but with an extra 0 at the right end. I couldn't find a belt release lever illustrated anywhere like that on my old Craftsman belt sander. On mine, you just flipped the lever either forward or back to release and tighten the belt. (still works great) There is a spring that pushes the front roller assembly forward when the lever is operated.

Throw lever to ingage blades and it doesn't engage


either the belt is worn so it is too loose or there is something binding the arm that moves to tighten the belt and not moving far enough to tighten the belt.

I have a craftsman riding lawn mower model 917258572. i just replaced the belt and it will not engage. i asked for a manual and someone did give me a link, but the page i think i need (22) would not...


First of all, did you get the correct belt, 144200? Do you have it routed right? The belt goes straight across the back between the two blade pulleys then to the inside of the two idler pulleys on each side in front of the blade spindles (pulleys), then to the engine. The smaller idler pulley on the left side is stationary, the one on the right swivels to tighten the belt when you engage the lever on the dash. That should give you something to check out. Good luck. Dwain

Sanding Belt Slips Badly


Check and see if the pulleys on the sander are not glazed this somtimes will cause the belt to slip. Give them a good cleaning. If this does not help there is a good chance the spring on the belt tensioner is weak and need changed.

Hop this helps
