Hi if the belt is dragging and slipping when your standing on top that means you need a new belt, not the one you are standing on. the belt that is attached to the motor. if you start the treadmill and dont step on it i bet the belt runs smoothly. not that expensive to repalce under £20.00. hope i have helped

On a Kirby sentria the metal spool sticking out that goes into hose or power head becomes extremely hot and left burns marks on brush tube. It only gets hot when using power head. I checked all adjust

Check the brush roll to be sure it's spinning free too much drag can cause that to get hotter but usually it would break the belt. That spindle will get hot from the friction created by turning the belt and from the motor's heat. They'll just get hot, any brand that spindle will be hot after running it. It's just how it is.

Cant copy a program on to the memory stick.

With which mouse button do you grab and drag the memory stick icon? If you're using the wrong button, that can adversely effect the process.

Good Luck,

My belt broke as I was rotating the drum with the dryer off to clean the inside of the drum. the drum does not turn freely nor did it prior to the belt breaking. Could there be something else wrong beside...

There are drum felts / seals in the front and back of the drum. If either of them are overly worn the drum will drag. Also if an article of clothing got wedged in either of the seals it will act as a brake.
Before you head off for a belt I would gain access to the drum and check the drum seals and the rollers underneath the drum. If the rollers are sticking that too will make the drum hard to turn. When the drum rollers stick they usually end up with flat spots on them and must be replaced.

Thanks for using FixYa.


p.s. dont forget to reconnect the door switch if you took off the front panel.

Craftsman hydro gear transaxle problem

check the brake for sticking and dragging. check the bypass lever, make sure it's disengaged fully. did you just fix a flat rear tire? if so, the square key that links the axle and wheel fell out. do you pull a heavy garden cart around? that can stretch a belt and overheat the trans. last thought, check the belt and see if it came off a pulley, i know that should have been first but it's late and i'm tired. good night

Thorens TD 126 Mark III - Motor will not run with belt attached

Maybe next time you might turn it OFF before handling the belt.

Try this with power off - manually rotate the turntable and look for where drag might be. You should be able to feel the drag. It is possible you didn't route the belt properly.
