GH1000 string trimmer

The belt slipped off the drive pulley but even though I have all the screws out of the case there is something near the button that releases the shaft that is keeping the case together. Is there a trick to getting it apart?

This is for the Black and Decker GH1000 string trimmer. There are 20 screws to remove altogether. The last screw is under the black label with instructions on using the button to extend the shaft. The screw hole is just above the white line on the label-you have to poke a hole in the label! Very tricky!

Change drive belt


Setting the belt tension on the 707-708-717 machines with the old rubber "Continental" belts:
1. Make sure that the hand-wheel spins freely on the main-shaft bushing stub when the release knob is loosened.
2. Assuming that you are using the original 441mm "Continental" rubber v-belts, the setting is made by means of loosening a 5mm Allen socket cap screw at the base of the step pulley support.
_____________
NOTE: The hand-wheel, stepped pulley, and motor pulley v-grooves must be clean. This is to say, that they cannot have any particulate or threads wrapped around the grooves.
4. The pulley will be automatically pre-tensioned to a 7 o'clock position by means of a spring to maintain the stepped pulley position. By pulling the belt toward this 7 o'clock position, the pulley tension can be adjusted and then tightened by means of the fixing screw.
_____________
5. It is important to know that both the upper and lower belt tensions can be independently adjusted so as to allow the hand-wheel to spin freely for bobbin winding without having the hand-wheel drive the machine. This is done by adjusting the step pulley support + or - radially, near the 7 o'clock position.
If the hand-wheel drives the machine with the upper belt loosened, then either the belt is too tight or the hand-wheel bushing and main-shaft stub need cleaning and lubrication.
Note: Lubrication was once the standard factory procedure with a class 68 oil, but experience dictates a dry lubrication with graphite. Silicone lubes are not recommended.
6. Do not over-tighten the 5mm Allen fixing screw as the 5mm threaded frame boss can be broken off.
================
Adjusting with the original Polyurethane v-belts on models 807-801-810-817-811 machines:
1. Follow the same procedure as mentioned but allow the step pulley's positioning spring provide the belt tension. Nothing more is required here.
NOTE: Sometimes these belts and pulleys get oily thus allowing much slippage. A simple cleaning of the belts and pulleys with mineral spirits can solve this problem.
================
After-market belts:
NOTE: One can find after market belts that serves to drive these machines but not without some problems as they are usually wider belts and don't fit the pulleys well. In this case some adjustment will be necessary.

I want to replace the belt on my Haier HLP21N (mini washer).


It sounds as though you are not threading the new belt properly. Normally, the belt goes over the motor pulley and the thing it is driving, the idler or tensioner pulley goes on the outside of the belt and pushes it inwards.

My advice is to always take cellphone mages before you remove items as an aid to memory.

How to change belt on 17-990x delta drill press


You've probably already tried looking for set screws on the pulleys, both the pulleys that attach to the spindle and the pulleys on the motor shaft, to remove both/either sets of pulleys and allow replacing the belt. I didn't mean to restate the obvious; I'm just brainstorming. I've restored a few old machine tools, and I've found that removing pulleys often requires the use of gear pullers. This is due to slight mushrooming of the ends of the shaft due to heating or hammering. I have even had to file the end of the shaft in one case to reduce the diameter before I could remove the pulley. Also, based on your picture, you might be able to remove the entire motor from its mounting to allow replacing the belt. read more at http://www.bestcordlessdrillhq.com/

Timing belt on weed trimmer


Instructions
    • 1

      Stand in front of the edger and take a look at the existing orientation of the drive belt if it's still on the lawn edger, and take a photograph of the routing with a camera. Cellphone cameras are good for this. This will help you put the new drive belt on correctly. You can also draw a sketch by hand.

    • 2

      Loosen the flange nut on top of the frame, letting the idler pivot assembly pivot a little. Reach into the back of the edger and pull off the existing belt from around the flywheel pulley. Then remove the spindle belt guard by removing any screws you see there. Remove the belt off the further pulleys and throw the belt away.

    • 3

      Place the new belt onto the spindle sheaves and route it back through the pulleys using your photograph as a guide. In all cases, the belt has to be on the engine flywheel pulley and the idler pulleys. The "Y" on the belt seats into the top pulley and the flat part goes into the bottom. Re-install the spindle guard and re-tighten the nut on the frame that you loosened.

Removal & Installation

  1. Rotate the drive belt tensioner clockwise and remove the drive belt.
    WARNING Never suddenly let go of the tensioned idler pulley. The force of the spring pressure suddenly released may damage the idler pulley mechanism. Always release the spring pressure gradually.

To install:
  1. Route the belt over the pulleys making sure all the grooves in the pulleys and the belt line up correctly. Refer to the accessory belt routing section of this manual.
  2. Rotate belt tensioner clockwise and slip drive belt over idler pulley on tensioner.

If for any reason, the tensioner is crooked, replace it!!! Also, install the belt with the writing facing you like you are trying to read a book. This WILL (a trick I learned at Mercedes) prevent even a new belt from squeeling!!

The belt has been replaced and is slipping


* take nail polish or paint and place a mark starting on the front roller pulley and going onto the front roller metal shaft
* then try to walk on it and see if the white mark separates
* if it does then the roller is bad and would need replaced or tap screws placed through the pulley into the metal shaft to hold it in place
* if it doesn't separate then the drive belt is slipping and most likely will need replaced, although you could try spraying belt dressing on it to see if that would be a temporary fix.
* if neither of these is your problem and the walk belt is slipping then you will need to try to adjust the screws in the back of the treadmill through the end caps. these are allen wrench screws.
Tighten each one the same amount such as 1 full turn to start with.
see if you can now walk without it slipping.
If not then tighten 1-2 more turn on both sides.
If after 2-3 full turns it is not tight enough
I would recommend replacing the walk belt.

Hopefully this helps with your problem!

Drive belt is too loose, already replaced belt and pulley. no drive power, plenty of deck power. Tractor is 8-10 years old, drive pulley portion of the double engine pulley split, so I replaced it and...


I had the same problem with my Craftsman Lawn Tractor. The Drive Belt (which is not adjustable) is only engaged when the Brake Pedal is released (the Brake Pedal is located on the left side of the tractor, near the foot rest on my Tractor).

The Symptoms: My Tractor lacked driving power, and would not go up an incline, but the mower deck was powerful and working fine, even though the Tractor seemed to lack power and moved slower than usual, and would not travel up an incline.

I too, changed the Drive Belt, which initially seemed to help somewhat for a very short period of time, and then the same, lack of power problem, re-appeared again. The belt was not the problem, but only seemed to work somewhat due to the rougher texture of the belt's surface against the pulleys.

I also changed the Plastic Clutch Pulleys that engage the Drive Belt, thinking that they may have been worn down to a point that the Drive Belt could not fully engage with these Pulleys. No Luck.

NO ONE, NOT EVEN SEARS ON-LINE REPAIR ADVICE CENTER HAD A SOLUTION. THIS WAS VERY FRUSTRATING INDEED.

There had to be a solution: After much investigation, I eventually discovered the problem, which actually was easy to solve, and I would like to share this simple solution with others facing this same Frustrating Problem.

The Brake Pedal, when released, causes the Drive Belt Clutch Pulleys to move, and thus Tighten the Drive Belt. When you look under the Tractor, there is a Protective Metal Plate mounted to the Bottom of the Main Tractor Frame which covers the Brake Pedal Shaft and attached Mechanisms. Over time, Grass Builds up in between the Protective Metal Plate and the Tractor's Main Frame Deck, creating a very narrow space between these two pieces of metal.

This area is very difficult to get at, and almost impossible to clean out. Over time, Grass Clippings accumulate in this hidden area, and harden to an almost rock hard clump.

These Hardened Clippings accumulated between the Brake Pedal Mechanism and its fully released metal stop position. Thus, preventing the Brake Pedal Mechanism from moving to its fully engaged position.

I used a long screw driver to break up the compacted grass clippings, and an Air Compressor Blow Gun to break up the packed grass and blow the area clear. It takes awhile to do this cleanup, and is a bit messy, so do it outside, but be patient, and be sure to clean out all the grass that is lodged in this hidden area.

What was happening was that the Packed Grass was so dense that the Brake Pedal could not Fully Release, thus only Partially Engaging the Clutch Pulleys and the Drive Belt, hence the appearance of a loose Drive Belt even when the Brake Pedal was released.

Once the Packed Grass Debris was cleaned out, you will immediately notice the Drive Belt being tighter than it was previously when the Brake Pedal is released, and when you test drive the Tractor you'll find that everything works perfectly, like it was brand new.

Good Luck...
