Default Re: Fan Belt Squeak

Hallo Marty, the squeaking comes when the V-belt slips. If you apply a lubricant such as soap or WD40, you will not hear it squeak anymore, but the belt is still slipping. The solution is candle wax. Rub the flanks of the V-belt with it and the belt runs noiselessly and without slipping.
