BELT FALLS OFF

Hello Dan,

I just purchased this item from someone local who told me sometimes the belt falls off and you can easily pop it back on. Yeah Right! I bought this gift for my husband's one year anniversary and we have spent more time trying to repair it than listen to the albums! And to add to that, now the table doesn't even spin! Since you live in the same state we do (MA), I was wondering if you could offer any help...I really wanted a gift for my husband to enjoy--not a frustrating project! Any insight on how these players work (or fix!) would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
New Broken Owners :(

Without the model number, I can't supply the belt number or size. These belts do stretch over time. If we can find the correct one, the belt shouldn't be more than $8-$10. If you aren't far from Lancaster, there is a flea market there that has a repair booth. You can try there as well.

Drum only turns about half way around and then falls back down


Hi,

Sounds as if the belt is slipping. REMOVE POWER and take the back off- or, if you are not comfortable to do it, have someone (competent) to do so.It should be possible to check whether the belt is slack and slipping. If it is purchase a replacement.
Loosen the main motor fixing bolts, put the new belt on, re-tension the belt by pulling the motor outwards BUT DO NOT USE A LEVER TO TENSION THE BELT. This could damage the belt, motor and bearings.
If it is not the belt it could be the motor which is malfunctioning- it depends on how old/used the machine is. If it is the motor, having just the worn brushes changed means that they are likely to last only months rather than years. One option is to have the motor refurbished by professionals with the result that the new brushes will bed in and last years. The other option is to replace the motor but motors tend not to be cheap. I replaced the motor on our fairly old Bosch for £250.
I hope it's the belt!
Good luck,

Drive belt problem


Hi,

You can go to a local electronic store with your belt.
He has a replacement which is smaller.
Don't buy the original (expensive) belt.

My gold star microwave worked lastnight. Went to


The outside bottom of your microwave usually has a belt hidden underneath a small cover directly under the turntable. This belt sometimes falls off or breaks, and sometimes the motor that turns the belt fails. Most time the motor can be found if you remove the main top cover of the microwave, about 10 screws.
Parts can be easily found at your local appliance parts store.

Best of luck.

Drive belt falls off mower


You need to inspect the pullies holding the belt, and the bearings that run the pullies. If they are bad they will jump the belt.

Whirlpool cabrio dryer belt falls off after install


If you're turning the drum backwards the belt will fall off. Make sure you're turning the same direction the motor will spin it.

The belt on my hoover will not stay on. It falls


Okay. I would suggest that you have a problem with your roller brush. If the roller becomes clogged with hair/debris, the bearings will sieze, and sometimes even melt the plastic. the roller then has a difficult time turning and will break the belt. If the belt is slipping off, I would suggest that you either have a worn belt, the wrong belt, Or, your "windtunnel" (the half cylindrical insert the roller sets in) is missing. this insert has a "belt guide" that keeps your belt aligned. hope this helps!!!

MY SONY LBT-LX90AV CASSETT PLAYS DISCORD AND BELT FALLS OFF


Hi. Make sure the flywheel turns freely and that the capstan pin and pressure roller are clean. If this is OK then it is more than likely that the belt is stretched, dried out or generally worn. These parts only have a certain usable life and are quite cheap to replace.

BELT FALLS OFF


1) Remove the platter - just lift up
2) Underneath the platter, you'll see a small lip section
3) Wrap the belt around this lip
4) Put platter back on turntable
5) Rotate platter until you see the motor shaft through the holes on the platter - a brass round looking piece
6) Pinch the belt around the motor shaft.
7) That's it.
