Customer Question

Good Afternoon Ms. Wilson.
As similar problems listed on the website, the belt has slipped.
JA: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?
Customer: About two weeks, bought a replacement belt, but not sure it needs it. When I looked underneath the mower I see the pulley wheels, but not sure if a tensioner has to be adjusted or not.
JA: What's the make and model of the mower? And can you guesstimate how old it is?
Customer: It was bought in 2013, Troy-Bilt Horse
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: Yes I planned on it, but was looking for a video that showed how to do it.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: No ma`am
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Small Engine Technician about your situation and then connect you two.

Model number? Deck belt will have a spring tensioner. It will not be adjustable, the spring should keep the idler pulley tight against the belt.
