Put new belt on hotpoint aquarius last one snapped but only turns with 3 items init no more but worked perfect before belt snapped?

A shaft could be seizing which is why other belt snapped, check the bearings and shaft to make sure they turn freely. Possibly wrong belt ? also check for worn pulley's.

What if the fan belt break while driving

Dan h described what would happen if your timing belt/chain broke.. fortunately the consiquences aren't as dire if your SERPENTINE belt snaps. Most vehicles have the following systems or devices powered by the front engine accessory drive belt (FEAD belt)
AC compressor
Power steering pump
Fan (some vehicles do and some don't)
Water pump

All but one of these things can be lived without, at least for a short time. If your belt snaps and your water pump stops your engine will overheat in no time flat., say you're cruising through a rural area and your belt snaps a mile and a half away from the next town, your car will get you there, but you had better turn it off once you get into town. After a belt snaps you've got 2 miles before you absolutely need to shut your car down to avoid damage.

Fan belt snapped on my renault express diesel changed that but now it now it turns over but wont fire up

check the belt is on correctly if it is it will be tight and around all pulleys,make sure around fuel pump pulley. Also ask yourself why belt snapped in first place was it old/cracked and due to break or did a pulley sieze and cause belt to squeel and burn then snap.

My h2, 2004 suddenly overheated very rapidly, only two days after being serviced. The air conditioning made a high pitched squeaking sound minutes before this happened. Engine then shut down and coolant...

Sounds like the ac compressor locked up and the belt snapped from rubbing on it. Once the belt snaps, the water pump stops and the engine overhears.

Drive belt snapped what is the cause

There are a couple of reasons for belt snapping.

1-Main drum bearings siezed, thereby caosing excessive friction, and belt to snap.
2-Motor siezed up, again causing excessive frictional wear on belt.
Try spinning drum by hand, it should be free, with no noise from it, if it runbles or feels rough, then drum bearings have failed.
3- Drum pulley loose or cracked, check the pulley for cracks or fractures.

My timing belt snapped and I took it to a mechanic. he said that the belt snap the piston head and the bent the valves. I am wanting second opinion, and would like to know if the timing belt is connected...

The pistons will hit and bend the valves if the timing belt snaps because they are very close.The alternator does not connect to the timing belt, there is a separate belt that runs the alternator.

Serpentine belt snapped 2 days in a row, the belt was burning the other day but today it just snapped and my anti freeze started to come out

A burning belt usually indicates a seized idler pulley on those gm cars. You will have to find which pulley is seized and change, it before replacing the belt or the new belt will only burn and snap again.

A belt snapped, leaked antifreeze and no power steering

If it was the timing belt, the car would have quit right then and there.
It's the belt that drives the fan, water pump and power steering.
Probably what they call the serpintine belt.
