Transmission drive belt broken

Since the belt broke, I had to put the cogged belt on the large driven pulley first, after loosening the four motor mount screws, and sliding the motor as close to the driven belt as I could. After several tries, I positioned the belt successfully on the driven pulley, then slipped it over the pulley on the motor. I pulled the motor as far away from the driven pulley to put proper tension on the belt without being excessive. I snugged the four motor mount bolts, tested the compactor and after a successful run, tightened the bolts on the motor mount. I then replaced the latch assembly, two screws and it was done.

Top door of machine would not latch

Replaced the old latch knob and installed the new one by twisting it in by hand . That was easy. The part in the door itself was not holding the new latch knob. I tried unsuccessfully to take the door apart to install the new part that goes in the door and grabs the knob. When that didn't work, I stuck what looked like an alternative to replacing that part into the old part. It was a flexible part that was supposed to catch the knob. That worked for a while and then came out. Unfortunately, I'm back to putting a piece of cardboard between the door to make it stay up.
