Don't believe you can fix them. Just replace it. Tension is critical for the belt to run everything, and to avoid early failure of the belt. A salvage yard tensioner should work.

The belt has come off the drum and is very hard to put back on . The intsructions say to remove clamp from the motor but there does not appear to be a clamp - therefore whenever the belt is fitted once...

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France @ 14:37 Tue afternoon,

Although I do not know your particular machine-
in general it is always worthwhile purchasing a replacement belt because the old one is likely to come off yet again. In machines I have come across the motor is held in place by bolts which, when tight, 'clamp' the motor in position.
The bolts are loosened, the belt put on and then the belt tensioned by firmly adjusting the position of the motor so the belt is tight and the bolts tightened i.e. clamped
In your case, apart from using the old belt which must have come off for some good reason, it sounds as if the belt is not yet tensioned/clamped.

Have a good look at how the motor is mounted- how it can swivel on its mountings/bolts to tension the belt. The bolts will be tight- and should be when tightened!

Hope this helps,

John C

you have to open back panel of dryer as well as the top. there will be a spring connected to the motor assembly. unlatch it, check your belt to see if it needs to be replaced. if cracked, replace. latch spring and belt should have tension.

I have a craftsman riding lawn mover 42" model #917270812

Hi Paul It sounds like the belt is worn, stretched, or possibly just two long for your machine. Save yourself a lot of aggrivation by checking your operator manual and getting exactly the right belt for your mower.

You don't say how old your machine is but if it has been mowing for many, many hours, the tensioning spring may need to be replaced. If that is the case you can order a new one at

Hoover Wind Tunnel V-Belt no longer turns brush

that is the correct belt what you dont see is a tension pulley that when the handle is released pushes on top of that belt giving it the tension it needs. try replacing the other belt, even if it isnt broken it could easily be stretched out ( all belts of that type should be replaced every year - even if you didnt use the machine at all ). if that doesnt work that tension pulley could be damaged you would need to take the bottom of the machine apart to fix that.
