I have a Consew 206RB-4 and cant get the bobbin winder to work.If no thread is attached to the bobbin,the bobbin will spin correctly.But when threaded the bobbin doesnt spin Ive loosened the tension


Hi Trish,
Have you checked if that wheel which spins the bobbin winder is pressed properly against motor belt which spins the machine itself, maybe its not aligned properly or it doesn't press firmly enough against that belt, or the belt itself is old and stretched and it doesn't put enough pressure on that wheel.

Hi, got a new belt for my candy CM1 166/1 washing machine but it keeps coming off , its the correct belt , the pulley wheel does not have any play and hardly any on motor wheel either ,belt keeps going...


If the belt is coming off the pullies my be out of line .you need to put a straight edge across the two pullies to make sure they are level . And check there's enough tension on the belt .

I have the belt connected to the wheel on my halo vacuum cleaner but it still will not turn


Is the motor shaft turning, if so be sure there is no hair buildup on the ends of the rollers and it is seated properly and you have good tension on the belt. If the motors not turning the motor shaft you need a new motor.

I have a Systemdek I 920 which is around 20 years old. It is not played much now but tried recently and there is no power when I switch it on. I have checked the plug and that is not the problem. Any...


Have you checked the belt? The speed is changed by lifting the glass platter and adjusting the tension on the belt using one of two size wheels attached to the motor. The belt may have either slipped off, disappeared over the years or just worn causing it to slip too badly to start the platter. Try it with the platter off and the belt unattached and see if the drive wheel will start with no load.

Please advice where to repair AKAI GX-R66 StereoCassette Deck. The problem is with the deck's head mechanics.Rewinds tape back and forth normally, but doesn't respond to Play button.


If it deck doesnt react at all (no movement or sound) the play-pushbutton could be defect.
If the servo does react (click sound) try cleaning the belt and wheels attatched to the long, small motor that is closest to the power supply circuitboard. It has a small white wheel driving a large black wheel with segments.
If this does not do it then remove the motor-screw closest to the (left) side of the deck, turn the motor a bit upwards (increases tension on the belt) and fix motor again in the newly appeared hole.
If this still is not enough, rotate the belt 180 degrees so you get a mobius ring loop. This further increases belt tension.
If this still doesnt work, replace belt, rough up the motorwheel or start praying.
Hope I helped you. Eric.

Could be a belt tension issue. Try tensioning the belt by moving the motor and wheels farther apart by reanchoring the units,or,spanning the gap between units with a series of wood blocks and shims(wedges).Be careful with tensioning. Always manualy move the belt,unit unplugged. There should be some deflection(play) in the belt when pressed upon with a finger.

Need to replace drum belt


Most dryers have a tensioner pulley that the belt needs to go around to keep it tight. The belt goes around the motor pulley and the drum, but it goes around the tensioner pulley in a way that would keep it tight (you also need to release the tension on the tensioner to get the belt around it) If there's not a tensioner pulley there has to be some other means of putting tension on that belt, look around the the other pulleys that the belt goes around.

We had a new serpentine belt replaced a couple of months ago and it just came off. How can I put it back on? Also the lug nuts seem to be stripped.


Click on the following free direct Link. It has the Serpentine Belt Diagram and Tensioner location for your 2000 Saturn SL.

http://www.2carpros.com/car_repair_information/year/2000/make/saturn/model/sl/2000_saturn_sl_drive_belt_routing_diagram.htm

Before we get to putting it the Belt back on...
Look at the alignment of the Pulleys. Most times the Tensioner or Idle Pulley are "canted" - meaning pitched or leaning forward, which causes the belt to "run off" the pulley - throwing the belt.
With the Belt off: check side-to side play for each one of the Pulleys by hand, especially for the Tensioner and Idle Pulleys. There should not be any side-to side play. If there is any other Pulleys that are canted - check if they are properly tightened. A new belt should not have come off on it's own without some other problem.

GENERAL/Standard Rules to Removal the Serpentine Belt with a Tensioner:
A. Find the Tensioner(s). (See Diagrams on Link)
B. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool, Or Wrench OR Ratchet, Rotate/Move the Tensioner USING THE AVAILABLE NUT (on the Pulley or Arm Base) OR the OPENING (3/8ths or 1/2 inch square opening) rotating the Tensioner Pulley/Arm - moving it away from contact with the belt and towards the area where the belt is not in contact with the Tensioner Pulley. The Tensioner is spring loaded, and is hard to rotate/move.
C. Remove the loosened belt off one of the other more easily accessed Pulleys.
D. DO NOT quickly release the Tensioner, but gently allow the Tensioner to rest in its closed position.

Standard Rules for Installing the Serpentine Belt with Tensioners:
a. Pick a Pulley that is most easily accessed. This will usually be on top. This will be the last Pulley that the belt will go on.
b. Using the Diagram: Install the new Serpentine Belt on the remainder of the Pulleys....over, under, left right.
c. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool or Wrench or Ratchet Tool: Rotate/Move the Tensioner Pulley/Arm "away" from Belt contact area on the Tensioner. This spring is pretty hard and with a new belt, it will be even harder to install. Rotate/Move this to as-close to the maximum allowed inorder to have enough slack in the belt to get it up and over the last pulley.
d. Using your other hand - Pull the Belt up and over the Last remaining Pulley.
e. Before releasing the pressure on the Tensioner, visually inspect the remainder Pulleys and the Belts' Positioning on them.


Regarding the Strip Lug -Studs.
Is this on the wheels with Rotors (Disc) or Drums? If the tire was not properly mounted, or the Lug Nuts were not properly Torqued; this will cause the Lug Studs (bolts) to be stripped.
With the vehicle raised and properly supported by jack stands:
For Rotors:
Remove the Tire, Brakes (Calipers/Pads) and Rotor, exposing the Wheel Hub (Bearing) Assembly with the Studs fully exposed. Rotate the Wheel Hub to a location where the Lug Studs can be clearly removed FROM THE REAR OF THE WHEEL HUB ASSEMBLY.
Using a impact hammer or mini sledge hammer: Hammer the Lug Studs back thru the Wheel Hub Assembly.
Remove the loosened Lug Studs.

For Drums:
Raise, support, remove the Tires.
Remove the Drums off the Wheel Assembly.
Using a impact hammer or mini sledge hammer: Hammer the Lugs back into the drum, removing from inside the Drum

Purchase the new, correct size and length Lug Studs and new Lug Nuts. If the Studs were stripped, most like the Nuts are too.
To reinstall the Lug Studs: Purchase an additional two (2) Lug Nut that fits that Lug Stud. Also purchase several Large Heavy Duty Washers that can fit on the the Lug Studs.

Place the Lug Stud back into the Wheel Assembly from the Rear (Rotors) or from inside (Drums). Use High Temp Grease for the area of the Lug Stud Splines that have to be "drawn" into the Wheel Assembly (with Rotors) or into the Drum.
After the Lug Studs are "IN" as far as they will go: on the outside place at least two (2) of the Washers on Lug Studs. Use a Lug Nut and tighten as far as possible down-on the Lug Stud as possible.
Next: Using an Impact Wrench tighten that Lug Nut down/on, drawing the Lug Stud into the Wheel Assembly/Drum. Check the rear of/inside the Wheel Hub Assembly/Drum. The Heads of the Lug Studs should be firmly against the Wheel Assembly/Drum.
If you do not have a Impact Wrench - use at least a 24-in Breaker Bar and Tighten the Lug Nut on, drawing the Lug Stud into the Wheel Hub Assembly/Drum. This takes longer and alot more work, compared to 10-seconds using the Impact Wrench.
Repeat as necessary.

Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel Free to contact me at FixYa.Com!
