The lawn mower belt is to loose how do you tighten it

You don't tighten the belt, there is a idler pulley it's between the motor pulley and the blade pulley where the chute is.

This has a spring that keep tension on the belt, so either the spring is bad, or see if there is another slot for the spring to make it pull more, or you have the belt routing on wrong.

Your manual should show the belt track.

If you can't move the spring and the belt is correct, get a new tension spring.

And clean off that deck, LOL

Having problems with metallic thread breaking constantly. I have adjusted tension up and down. I am using the net over the thread as directed in them manual. The bobbin thread continues to show on

I'm not exactly familiar with your machine but... a few things you should know. 1. You need a metallic thread Needle. or at least one with a larger hole. 2. Check your bobbin carrier, if anything catches or jams between between the spring and the case it can loosen the bobbin tension and make the top show too much bobbin color. 3. If your bobbin spring becomes grooved from the wear of the thread... same thing. 4. If your spring and everything is ok and clean... tighten the tiny screws to tighten the bobbin tension some.

When you stitch a piece of cloth, the stitching appears to be loose, resulting in a very untidy stitch.please help immediately.i didnt get a booklet with my sewing machine

Firstly you can download a manual from the Singer website, link is, type in "W750" and click search.

Once youve got the manual downloaded, I'd suggest you print it out and get it bound in covers so it can stay with the machine.

Then trouble shoot the tension, this sounds to me like you've got insufficient or no tension on either top, bottom or both threads. You need to revise the threading up and make sure you always thread up the top with the pressure foot raised so the thread properly seats into the tension discs. Set top tension on the normal mark between 3 and 4 and make sure when you load the bobbin into the bobbin holder, that the thread gets clicked into the tension spring completely.

Now test sew again, and tighten up the top tension a fraction if it shows on the underside. You can't adjust the bobbin tension on these machines or at least the manual doesn't show any adjustment, just says to adjust the top thread tension.

As a rule of thumb, change your sewing machine's needle for each new sewing project too as this will help with stitching quality.

If you can't get it looking any better consider taking the machine back to the shop (if its fairly new) and getting it checked.

If you are planning to sew lots of things, you may want to consider buying a higher level quality machine than this one, it is an entry level machine and there is huge variation in stitching quality between the cheaper models and the higher end quality ones. Just depends on your sewing needs and desires I guess as to whether its worth investing more $$.

Belt comes off. idler pulley bracket doesn't seem to have enough tension on it. Bracket spring is still on. Maybe wrong spring? Just bought new belt and it went on way easier than old belt . is...

the new belt should be a hair smaller than the older one thus being tighter to put on, either the new belt is the wrong size or you don,t have the tensioner spring tight enouph, did you have to take it off at some point and just not get it back in the right hole
also make sure your routing the belt the right way around the pullies,if all that is good ten check the length on the belt
sounds like its just a matter of correct routing

When I engage the blades nothing happens. Any ideas?

I have a YTH 150 with a similar problem. The mower has an electrically powered clutch which is activated when you engage the blade button. If the drive belt has no tension on it, engaging the clutch doesn't do anything because the drive wheel will just spin but the blades won't. Look for broken tension springs on the mower deck and replace.

Hi There is a spring that holds tension on the paul (ratchet) underneath that is broken. You need to replace the spring. Remove the plate on the bottom of the doser to see the paul and spring. The spring is flat on most Rocky's.

I have tension spring that is disconected inside a toro 824 snowb

That spring will attach itself to just about anything available. So put some hand tension on the idler pulley of the tensioner, and make an arc with the end of the spring, and there should a tab or bolt or post that the spring could attach to.
