I just completed the assembly on my new 3650 TS. The motor is quiet but I seem to be getting a bit of chatter from the belt. Appears to be tracking okay by my eyes. Is this belt noise normal? If not, anyone have suggestions for a solution? Thanks!
take a crayon and hold it aginst the belt while it is running(for safety please remove the blade) new belts sometimes make noise but the wax in the crayon will help you determine weather or not it is the belt or a bearing/bushing
to the inside frist to lube the belt (about 10-15 seconds)if the noise contiues to stay there disconnet the belt and start the motor if that is quiet turn the arbor by hand you are looking for tight spots or a slightly odd feel to and the moving parts but wax the belt frist as it is the most common problem
