SOURCE: More RPM Issues for Tools 1)

I had the same problem a while back, But I didn't bother with exact speed, what I cared more about was power and speed, and not bogging down. And I had it running smooth. Of course I have no idea what the pulley diameters were, but it sounds like you should be real close with the 2 1/2 inch at the head and 5 1/2 inch at the motor spinning 1725, should be about 900? So to get 700, bring the 5 1/2 down to 4 1/2, see if it has enough speed/power.

Have you ever thought of a Motor Speed Controller, sort of a "Dimmer" for a motor? That way you could simply adjust your motor speed to what you want and compensate the error out?

Most likely the belt has come off or is worn.

To replace a drive belt.
Before starting unplug from mains power source.
1, Remove the rubber platter mat to expose the platter.
2. Put your thumb and forefinger through the two round holes and lift the platter off. You may need to give the centre spindle a light tap (whilst applying upward pressure) with a screwdriver handle or some similar tool that will not leave any marks or damage.
3. Remove the old belt and wipe the platter pulley and motor pulley with an alcohol swab to remove any old belt residue.
4. Place the new belt around the platter pulley making sure t is sitting flat without any twists.
5. Flip platter over the right way up. There are1or 2 larger rectangle shaped cut outs in the platter.
6. Through the cut out pinch up the belt and slip a finger or belt hook between the platter pulley and the belt gripping the belt ready to fit over the motor pulley.
7. Align the centre hole of the platter with the spindle and place platter back into position keeping a grip on the belt.
8. Slip belt over motor pulley and give the platter a light clockwise rotation to ensure the belt is riding correctly.
9. Replace the rubber mat and then run the turntable to ensure correct operation.

Job done.

Its possible that the rubber V belt that drives the treadmill anticlockwise via the front belt roller has jumped off the motor 'driver' pulley, or the front roller 'driven' pulley, or both.
When this happens you can hear the motor, but nothing moves.
If you are not a qualified electrician, try the following, but only with the power completely disconnected and unplugged from the wall plug. Do not try the following with the power plugged in under any circumstances.
1. Unplug Power Cord.
2. Remove the screws that hold down the front engine drive belt shroud or housing cover.
3. Look for the V Belt drive and see if it has come off either pulley. It should be a small rubber V belt tightly stretched between the motor (driver) and roller (driven) pulleys.
If it is fine, maybe the motor or clutch mecanism (if it has a clutch) have burnt out or or worn out.
If it has come off, use a butter knift to leverage it back onto the pulleys while gently rotating the Pulleys.
4. Replace the shroud or motor cover with all screws.
5. Only then plug in the powercord and try it again.

Trouble garage door


Disconnect the door so the belt and pulleys will run without a large weight to move. If they move ok, reattach the door and try again but help the door move with your hand. If it moves ok then, the door levers and joints may be too stiff and need lubicating and wiggling until they move freely.

belt or motor. disconnect power to dryer, in order to disassemble machine
Cabinet Top Removal
1) remove the end caps found at either end of the console. Lift them from the back, and then pull them towards you.
2) There will be two screws holding the console in place. Remove the screws, and then slide the console towards you and flip it up.
3) There will be an additional three screws at the back of the cabinet top. Remove these and slide the cabinet top towards you and lift it off the unit.
Kick Plate Removal
1)There are two spring catches that need to be disengaged, use a thin screwdriver or a flat thin object as they are located on either side (about four inched in) and pry down to disengage.
Front Panel Removal
1)Open door and remove screws that are in hinges
2)Tilt door up and lift out
3) continue removing all screws

you will have to look at the belt it should be in a groove on the middle of drum, once the top is removed you can see the belt. If the belt is not broke or off, then you will need to inspect the motor, you will need a multimeter as you are looking to see if the winding is open or if the terminals are shorted. Oh, the only other thing it could/might be is the Idler pulley wheel the belt loops over the drum, under the idler pulley wheel, and around the motor's drive pulley. Tension is applied to the belt by the idler pulley wheel that sits on a movable arm. Make sure this is not cracked or broken. Hope this helped Tim

When I power up my treadmil the belt does not move. If I step on the side the belt would then start to move until I move my foot.


In order of most likely cause. 1) Worn motor belt needs to be changed. Rear roller bolts need to be tightened as the walking belt has too much slack(2-3 inches lift on the edge of the belt in the middle on each side) 3) the nylon pulley on the front roller is slipping and a new roller is needed.

How to fit a belt for a indesit dryer ISL70c


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Please follow the step-by-step procedure---

1. Remove the front panel.
2. Reach underneath drum and behind motor to locate idler pulley. Push idler pulley to left to release drum belt tension. Remove the belt from the motor pulley.
3. Remove the drum and belt from the cabinet.

1-- Prepare for replacing the dryer belt by lifting the lint-screen cover on the top of the dryer. Then remove the lint screen. Skip this step if your lint screen is inside the door. Remove the 2 Phillips screws inside the door instead.
2-- After removing the lint screen, lift the cover and remove the screws that hold the lint-screen housing to the dryer top.
3-- Slide a putty knife between the front panel and the top near a corner. Lift the corner and repeat on the other side.
4-- To remove the lower panel, insert the putty knife between the panel and each side. Then twist to release clip.
5-- Place a few wood blocks under the drum. These support the drum when the front panel is moved away from the sides.
6-- Loosen the screws that secure the bottom of the front panel to the dryer sides. Do not completely remove the screws.
7-- Remove the screws that secure the front panel to the dryer sides at the top. These are accessed from the inside of the cabinet.
8-- Lean the front panel away from the sides and slip the new dryer belt over the drum. Then re-secure the front panel.
9-- Check that the lip on the back of the dryer drum fits properly against the seal on the rear bulkhead of the dryer.
10-- Locate the original position of the old belt, and slip the new belt in place. Keep the grooved side of the belt down.
11-- Push the idler pulley toward the motor and loop the doubled-up belt around the idler pulley. Slip belt around motor pulley.
12-- Rotate the drum counterclockwise a few turns to check belt tracking. Then replace remaining components and test run.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Making scraping sound when spinning


hi The drive belt (or belts) of a washing machine may become worn or damaged, causing noisy operation or stopping the washer entirely. A damaged drive belt is easy to replace. Remove the back panel of the washer to gain access to the belt. To remove the belt:

Step 1: Loosen the bolt on the motor bracket and move the motor to put slack in the belt.

Step 2: Remove the old belt and stretch a new one into place on the pulleys.

Step 3: To put tension on the new belt, use a hammer handle or a short pry bar to push the motor into position while you tighten the bolt in the adjustable bracket. The belt should have about 1/2 inch deflection when you press on it at the center point, midway between the pulleys. If the belt is too loose, it will slip on the pulleys, causing the machine to malfunction. If the belt is too tight, it will wear very quickly and will probably become so hot that it will start to smoke or smell.

Loose pulleys can also cause problems. Most pulleys are fastened to shafts with setscrews around the hub of the pulley. These screws must be tight or else the pulley or belt will slip. The resulting malfunction may seem to be caused by a faulty motor, but it can be corrected by tightening the pulleys and adjusting the belt. For this reason, always check the belts and pulleys before working on the motor.

I need to replace the dryer belt


The belt on a dryer is inside the body, usually accessed and changed as follows

most base dryers
  • unplug dryer(220v is Not Fun)
  • remove lint screen
  • undo screws inside lint screen holder, screwing it to case lid (so lid can tilt up)
  • with putty knife or other blunt blade, release spring catches under front corners of case lid
  • raise case lid
  • remove screws 1/3 way down front corners of body holding front panel on
  • remove door switch cable from door switch
  • lift door off set aside
maytag
  • remove screws from bottom bend of front panel
  • lift front panel off
  • remove doo switch cable
  • sent front panel aside
  1. drum motor felts and bearings are now accessible.
  2. lift drum and withdraw fully forwards
  3. with drum removed check support rollers for free movement, check drum slides and/or drum felts for wear, easier to replace now, if worn, than have bearings or slides cause belt to break again.
  4. loop belt loosely around drum at wear marks from prior installation
  5. reinsert drum onto rollers bearings slides felts as installed.
  6. loop belt around motor pulley
  7. pull tensioner pulley against spring to end of its travel
  8. loop belt around tensioner pulley
  9. relax tensioner pulley to tighten belt
  10. rotate drum by hand to ensure belt is aligned
reassemble case in reverse order.

Notes
There are not many belt, felt, support roller sizes the local parts guy will have a belt, felt, roller to fit,

Tensioner pulley may not be in place, breaking belts often pull them out of their mounts, the pulley and spring will be lying on the case floor, there is only one way they fit in to their mounts so they are easy to reinstall

tensioner sketch is approximate, pulley may be on top run pulling down, or bottom run pushing up

the repair is easy, it takes longer to type or read this than it does to repair the dryer

Belts ~$14 Support Rollers ~$14/pair, felts/slides upto ~$25
New dryer +$200 - its a good repair

Hot point dryer


the drum has dropped
the drum is suspended on felt pads to seal the drum edges, nylon guides at the front, and rubber tyred thrust rollers to withstand the torque of the motor and belt at the rear.
the usual cause is the rollers have failed, common fault, easy fix, cheap too
good rollers look like this
1ac2db2.jpg worn rollers like this
34b5f0e.jpg
try not to run the dryer till the rollers are replaced, the extra strain will break the belt,

  • unplug dryer(220v is Not Fun)
  • remove lint screen
  • undo screws inside lint screen holder, screwing it to case lid (so lid can tilt up)
  • with putty knife or other blunt blade, release spring catches under front corners of case lid
  • raise case lid
  • remove screws 1/3 way down front corners of body holding front panel on
  • remove door switch cable from door switch
  • lift door off set aside
  1. drum motor felts and bearings are now accessible.
  2. pull tensioner fully agains spring
  3. remove belt from motor pulley
  4. lift drum and withdraw fully forwards
  5. with drum removed check support rollers for free movement, check drum slides and/or drum felts for wear
reassemble.
  1. loop belt loosely around drum at wear marks from prior installation
  2. reinsert drum onto rollers bearings slides felts as installed.
  3. loop belt around motor pulley
  4. pull tensioner pulley against spring to end of its travel
  5. loop belt around tensioner pulley
