    If the belts are brittle then they are over-heating.
    a possible cause is a loose belt slipping under stalled load or when starting. If the sheaves are clean, properly lined up and adjusted and the belts are tensioned properly
    you may want to look at the way the fan starts (across the line, on a drive, short cycling,etc).
