The right size is 9.5 x 1000La. If you can get this anywhere it 
should be fine. Many of these are serrated belts now, but I think the 
straight smooth ones may wear the fan less, so I prefer them.

No, use whatever you can buy cheaply at K-Mart.

In general they are not too helpful, and I would never consider them 
for service, but if you find one with a good parts man who is both 
interested and friendly they can be very helpful. The parts are 
expensive though, so I would look elsewhere first.
