Does Your Swamp Cooler Belt Need Replacement?
The first question you need to ask is whether or not your belt actually needs replacement. In many cases, this is an easy question to answer; did it snap? Is it fraying? Is it cracked? If the answer to any of these is yes, then you need a new evaporative cooler belt. Sometimes it is a bit more difficult to determine if replacement is necessary. In many cases, the belt will stretch so much that it loses the tension required to run properly. This, in turn, can cause insufficient air flow and make your evaporative cooler to run with less efficiency than normal. So, to review, when determining whether or not you need to replace your belt, check for these common signals:
- Cracks or Splits
- Proper Adjustment (sometimes belts need to be moved, rather than replaced)
- Belt Tension
If you find that your swamp cooler belt is experiencing any of these issues (outside of adjustment problems) then you may need a new belt.
What Type of Belt Do You Need?
Unlike many parts in the cooling system, evaporative cooler belts are relatively congruous, meaning you can use almost any belt on almost any system. And, while brands may determine the quality of the belt you receive, most coolers accept most brands, so this is one aspect you won’t have to worry about. However, when choosing your cooler belt, there is one thing that you need to keep in mind, and this is the size of the belt; fortunately, it is very easy to determine what size you need. All you have to do is locate the part number on the underside of the belt and match that with the product you buy on our site; or, if you can’t find that number, take it to a store (or call us) to find which would work for your system. NEVER measure the belt, or “guestimate” what size you need, as the swamp cooler belt will stretch during use and throw off what the correct measurement should have been.
Installing Your Belt
Once you choose the belt, it is an easy task for replacement. Simply loosen the motor’s bolt and nut, slip the belt off, and put the belt on the way the old belt was before removal. Don’t forget to find out which belt you need, and don’t forget to turn off the system (and unplug it) before working on it! Test once job is done to ensure you have done everything correctly.
