When we launched the new MSAWorld, we knew we wanted to feature a section of repair advice to servicers, from servicers. So we sent out a call for Tech Tip submissions—and you answered! Here’s the first set of tips we received, all reviewed and approved by our expert technical trainer and Tech Tip creator, George Schick.
Let us know what you think. Have you used these tricks on your own calls? Will you on future calls? And do you have your own Tech Tip you’d like to see posted? If so, send it in with this simple form or via email. If yours is chosen, we’ll feature it on the site in the next round of Tech Tips by You!

TOPIC: Make a Samsung dryer belt last longer
TIP: Replace the Samsung idler pulley with one from LG (part #4560EL3001A). It will keep the belt away from the metal of the idler arm.
