There is no tension adjustment for the blower belt. You need to remove the scews from the blower housing, install the belt, realign it all, and replace the screws. In this case, there were 2 guys going this and they struggled to get everything lined up right.
As for loctite, we just tightened it all up. I wish I had seen that posting first, I asked the service rep about it and he said it didnt need it.
I am not an appliance repair man, but I am the maintenance supervisor at a mens shirt factory. I primarily work on all kinds of sewing machines, along with cutting, pressing, fusing, and what ever else comes my way. (I know how to operate a PLUNGER too)
Thanks kindly for all that have helped me here. I have printed out several books for instruction, parts, and even theory. I like to know whats going on with things before I get into them.
