That plastic piece is part of a coupler that the bearings sit next to or in. You can view a diagram on the partselect website to see what I'm talking about and to order the new parts

Bell & howell 265a manual


This is so old it will be impossible t find - did you try Ebay?

A lot of problems with these old projectors are broken plastic parts that are no longer available or melted/broken belts. Belts can be replaced with an O-ring of the appropriate size (check your local hardware store) PRB used to sell belts for projectors but I believe they are now out of business.

Burning plastic smell when using the vacuum cleaner


HI, Thanks for contacting the FixYa team.

1. Plastic Burning Smell - This means that there is friction in a plastic part of your Dyson. The only place this will be coming from is the BrushBar. The brushbar has jammed somehow. The smell arises as the rubber belt is still trying to turn the plastic brushbar but the brushbar is not moving. To solve the problem you will need to unscrew the soleplate using a 2 pence piece, this is done by inserting the 2 pence piece into the 3 plastic screws on the underneath of the Dyson. Turn the screws a quarter anticlockwise. You can then remove the soleplate. You will probably see that there is a build up of debris by the brushbar. This is more common on The Animal version as pet hair mixed with dust gets stuck in here, especially if the machine has been used on a damp or wet surface. So clean this area out and then try manually rotating the brush bar in each direction. If you have been using the machine for too long with the burning smell then it is likely that your brushbar will be melted where the belt attaches to it. If this is the case then you will need to get a new brushbar. If the brushbar is not too damaged check that the belt has not broken. If the belt has not broken then replace the soleplate. Turn the screws a quarter in a clockwise direction. Should your belt be broken then please re-post and we will show you how to sort this. Thank you

ENGINE WILL NOT ENGAGE WITH SPINNING SPOOL


I had the same problem, The pully is plastic and is mostlikely melted. I took mine apart when it finally stopped working and found that the belt had broken as well. When taking it apart, there is a hidden screw under the black sticker label. Just feel for the soft spot. Also, there are screws under the black plastic embelishments.

My maytag dryer is making a very loud noise near the area where the belts are, the belts seem to be working and the drum is turing, however after a while there is a burning smell.


Is the burning smell like plastic? If so read on. The belt runs on a spring steel plat tensioner with platic wheels of course. Plastic is on everything these days, huh? Well anyways the wheels the belt rides against has bushings inside them to make them last a long time which they do. It seems the plastic wheel will melt down in some spots and when rotating it makes the drum of the clothes dryer make a rumbling sound. I know you did not mention that problem although if the wheels keep on melting down the smell will subside but the noise will get loader as time goes on.

My belt sander makes a horrible noise.....like it's in need of WD40 I just don't know how or where to oil it.


chances are it does not need oil. I am assuming it is electric, not air. usually the noise is from the brushes either worn or broken.

Belt on Riccar 8850 is slipping off motor shaft.


NO! there is usually a fan attached to the motor. i have found that junk gets in there and will cause it to viberate. otherwise check the brushroll. there will be connectors on each side with a bearing. if the plastic looks melted, replace the brushroll
