Belt Issues 11323940 Craftsman Craftsman shaper


Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

First confirm the closed end of the motor pulley is facing down as indicated on page 4 step 9 in the assembly, operating instructions. Figure 5 on page 5 also shows the gap needed between the bottom of the flat pulley and the bottom of the motor mounting plate. Check this gap. There are 4 square head mounting bolts securing the motor to the mounting plate. You may need to loosen the 4 bolts and raise or lower the motor as needed to keep the belt tracking correctly. You may need to adjust the motor and or/add washers to kick the top or bottom of the motor in or out just a little. Also, if the spindle bearings are worn and the shaft has too much play, it could also cause the belt to track incorrectly.

I hope this helpful.
