Hi, I have an old Frigidaire stack unit  LC-248J-L*3.  I have removed the top, back, left side and front and can't get the new belt on!  Do I have to remove the motor and wireing or the fan to get the belt on?  Should I operate from the front or back?  HELP!         Aloha Andrew

Thanks for responding.  The model #is LC-248J-L*3 it is clearly printed on a sticker attached to the top plate of the unit it also says Frigidaire Company Dayton Ohio  serial 20GM1652 and specs for the motor and heater.  The bottom of the sticker has Listed 138H printed on it.  It is OLD possibly from military housing.             Aloha Andrew

Here's a model# close enough to help LC248JL6

CLICK HERE to see image in new window.

This is the an old frigidaire stack unit. These can be kind of tricky but if I remember correctly the trick to get the belt on without removing at least the motor wiring and two motor clips or trying to take the pulley/shaft off the motor which can be quite the job is to push the belt all into the blower wheel area and pull the plate ref#16 behind the blower wheel back and shove the belt out the back of blower between plastic housing and metal plate ref#16 that is held in place by the spring ref#65.

Disassembly explanations here:

Frigidaire and White-Westinghouse
Pop the top, remove the front panel screws, unstring the belt, and pull out the drum.

Dom arigato appliance sensei, 

 thanks for all of the tips, advice and diagrams.  None of them apply to my unit ( to old, I guess).  To any one else with this model take a deep breath, it is a four beer job.  The belt cost me $20 and I spent 4 hours on the job.  If I had to do it again it would take 1 hour.  Take off top, back and washer lid.  Remove drum.  The pully is between the motor and the fan.  Remove the 4 screws holding the fan bracket down and  the two screws that hold the heat sensor into the virtical face of the fan. You can work the belt between the fan housing and the front panal then under the fan and onto the pully.  If you 've gotten this far putting the belt around the druma and over the tensioner should be easy.  The Frigidaire pictures for threading belt are not for this unit.  Job well done and back to the remaining two beers.   If any one is in the same boat email me at wobbledome@yahoo.com and I will walk you through it.                         Aloha Andrew

So did you even bother to read my post, I'm sure the picture I linked to is the unit you were working on.

The info Samurai post deffinitely is not what you have.

Did you try to put the belt in through the front opening of the blower housing or did you just assume I didn't know what I was talking about?????
