Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.
Take a really close look at the pulley alignment making certain that the pulley there is lining up with the others that the belt runs on. I believe that you will find a bent bracket where that pulley mounts onto that is causing the belt to be thrown off.
Have you ever had the machine back into an authorized Troybilt repair center for them to look at it. If this has been happening ever since you first purchased the machine I would have taken it in to have it looked at while it was under warranty(2 years).
With the belt on the pulleys you can look to see if the belt is running or looks level. If not then I would look for bent or loose parts(bracket) that would cause it to throw the belt off.
If it is throwing the belt that quickly or often then yes it should be very noticeable. It could be as simple as bending a bracket in order to straighten or level the belt out.
Yes, try to get it back up as close to level as you can. Keep in mind that since it has been bent this problem could come back again.
I would recommend eventually replacing the bracket if this problem persist.
Thank you it has been a pleasure to assist you.
