Experienced gardeners share their insights in answering this question :
Belt tension on the drive belt is spring loaded. With the mower TURNED OFF, lower the deck all the way and have a friend move the clutch pedal back and forth until you can see which pulley is moving to control belt tension. If the pulley is traveling to its maximum position and the belt is still loose, then you will have to replace the belt, it has stretched. If the pulley is sticking before it gets to the maximum position, then you will need to clean and lube the pivot plate to allow full travel. It will be very dirty under there….compressed air and a blower would be a good thing to have when attempting this. While you are under there, turn all of the pulleys by hand to make sure the bearings are free turning and smooth turning. A notchy feeling in a pulley means it will be locking up very soon. Replace it before it burns up your new belt.
Good luck!

How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?

We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :

/ˈbɛltˌtaɪtn̩ɪŋ/ noun. Britannica Dictionary definition of BELT–TIGHTENING. [noncount] : a reduction in spending : changes that are made in order to save money.
Belt slippage occurs whenever torque demand exceeds the available friction between a V-belt and one or more of the pulleys (sheaves). When this occurs, the belt begins to slide backwards a bit as it moves with the pulley.
Slipping can be the result of a loss of belt tension (or a weak automatic tensioner) or pulley misalignment. When the belt slips off the track, the friction between the belt and accessory drive pulleys causes the belt to overheat. If you hear a high pitched squealing noise, it`s probably time for a switch.
If the belt is too tight, it will cause excessive side loads and overheat the bearings. This in turn causes noise, decreased output and even the seizing of the alternator. If the belt is too loose, it will cause the alternator to slip. This slipping can cause the alternator and the battery to work harder.
Driving with a bad belt tensioner is unsafe since the tensioner is meant to guarantee ample tension that powers accessories. Wear on the belt tensioner will eventually cause the belt to slip, generate loud noise, and also create an unsafe level of heat along the accessory pulleys.
