20 Most Recent Kenwood KD-291RC Turntable Questions & Answers


Your turntable is belt-driven, it's likely that the belt just fell off. The belt lives under the turntable. On my turntable (a totally different model) the turntable lifts off.

A new stylus should not change the tone arm balance setting if it is the correct stylus.

Does your arm have a sliding balance weight at the rear of the arm? If so you can slide this slightly towards the cartridge to regain the correct playing weight.

I would suggest you get a repair shop to do this for you, or you could finish up damaging your records.

The reason why the audio is low, is that todays receivers do not have a phono input, and these types of inputs are differant then the ones of today. You will need whats called a phono preamp, and one should still be available from Radio shack. Or you can go here to find out more about them: http://www.phonopreamps.com/ To reseat the belt, take off the rubber mat on the turntabe disc. Install the belt around the inside ridge, there should be a couple of holes on the platter disc. Install the patter back onto the center spindle. Turn the platter around till you see the motor pully through one of the holes in the platter. Take the belt that is around the turntable platter, and pull it over to the motor pulley. Good Luck

Yes they can be replaced.

Contact the store you purchased it from or ask where they have repairs done. They should be able to order the parts for you.

I can't find either model you mention anywhere but a turntable without a built-in PHONO preamp will require an external on to drive any input not marked explicitly for PHONO.

eBay always has some...

The weight should be set to the position recomended by the cartridge maker. Typically 1.5 to 2.5. If you don't know the makers setting, set it at 1.5 and work upwards. The stylus should track nicely in the record groove and not jump. But not too heavy as to cause rumble in the sound. Set the skate control low and again try the record out, if the stylus starts to skate accross the record increase the force. It's a case of experimentation with no fixed rules on these settings. Some records might need adjusments afterwards.

You need not have to check for Kenwood but many cartridges are suitable to be fitted on to this model .
Please find help to fix them and choose a cartridge/stylus accordingly.

First of all you will need an amplifier, because a turntable has no sound power and its impedance needs to be balanced by a phono input, often found on a receiver or an amplifier. Then you will connect the speakers to the receiver or to the amplifier. I believe that a good start would to buy an old cheap stereo receiver, which has phono inputs, where you connect your kenwood turntable. Hope this will help. Flavio/Brazil
