Simplicity GTH 16 Problems

Recommended Posts


People, I'd like to start a forum to specifically address GTH16 problems. There are tons of these machines out there and plenty of issues.

Here's one: the drive belt is infamously difficult to change. On my model, the operator instructions don't work, and the belt cannot be removed/replaced as instructed.

The trick is to remove the speed control panel and loosen the speed control chassis bracket screws a couple of turns. It's non-obvious but easy, and it works.

Good luck to all.
