  • Profile Ball Return

    What causes the Profile ball return to throw a belt? The last time the belt had threads hanging off it so I replaced it with a new belt and now maybe 3 weeks later it happened again.
    Well we're safe for now. Thank God we're in a Bowling Center.

    Pulley misalignment. the 2 large pulleys are fixed as well as the tensioner pulley. But the pulley on the motor can be slid back and forth. Sounds to me like it isnt lined up properly. the belt rides on the edge of the pulley and it tears it up. Just go take a look at it and adjust as needed
