Default Rigid Miter saw

I have a Rigid 10” Sliding Dual Bevel Miter Saw. It screeches on startup. I googled this problem and found this website, someone else with same problem. I opened the drive case and see 2 options. Tighten the belt by shifting the motor or put a belt dressing on the belt to soften the rubber, much like on a car radiator belt. Anyone try either?

I have a Ridgid 12" Miter saw. I tightened the belt just a bit and it has never sqwauked a again. I hope this may be quick fix for you sir. My saw is now going on three years.
