No, there is no motors on these things. They operate on a direct drive system. What this means is that there are various components/circuits which control it's drive function. If the torque is off on your turntables, more than likely one of the resistors is just old and needs to be replaced.

Not a job for a novice. Take it to a professional.... someone who knows about 1200s.

Stanton st.150 turntable sins unevenly


That is a lack of maintenainance, but your real problem is that your

voltage regulator from -24 en 24v gets to hot, since the stanton has crappy everything, where cheap build and often the components aint screw against the cooling block, so first check that and well , there about 60 crappy su\'scon caps that needs replacement. It\'s a tt from hell with the useless weight. Your system started spinning hard, cause the thermal protection started to work. Overheating, since most peoples set the start and stop torque set at the highest point, and with the small cooling blocks you get a problem and by pressing the platter, you ask for more current and that was just too much, if your bearings were that bad you assume , you have heart a lot more noice.

Stantonst.150 turntable platter spins unevenly


Well, you have the rotor, which has above the conus where you put your platter on. But the rotor needs to be kept in space, so it can spin,
which offcourse in the is done by (too soft) bearings, but the bottom of the the rotor(which looks the same as the 'pin' where you put you vinyl on, just leans on a piece of metal, instead of a technics where it falls in a shaft too keep it is place.
You undestnd that the strength on the bearings of a st150 is much higher, especially when scratching. Besides that, the high torque works 0,2 sec and then an optocoupler samples the speed of the rotor. And it's easy:on the underside of the rotor ,there's a plastic round disc puled over the rotor and kept on his place by a plate and 3 screws, with on the outside just

Turntable has stopped working, possible belt stretch


I don't think it's likely that the motor is in trouble just by having the belt wrong. It would require more physical damage to cause the motor to play up. Having said that the motor could have been in trouble before you touched the belt. But you do need a new belt, all you need to do is measure the diameter of the belt in mm. You might also need to measure the width. To find a new belt put the words "turntable drive belt XXmm" into Google. You can add Crosley to the start, but many belts are universal. Your measurements don't need to be spot on with the diameter, so if you have measured it at say 95mm, a 90mm to 100mm belt will do the job. However fitting the new belt is a different matter. You need to know the correct way, or the speed might be wrong. I can't help you with the fitting of it, so you will need to check how to do it. Some makes have YouTube videos of the fitting. I would just look for Crosley and see if any look like your model.

If fitted correctly and there's a problem with speed still, then you should look more closely at the motor.

It sounds like your auger motor has an issue in my opinion. How i check them is: remove ice bin, open freezer door, hold door switch down, depress the freezer ice dispenser button on the door and see if the auger motor has the torque when it turns, if the motor has power and turns but cant turn w/ torque or has power and dosen't turn. you need a new auger motor. lmk if u need more help!

Torque Problem


They actually need to be "broken in". The mk5 uses a different pitch board, allowing you to reverse, pitch up and down to 16, and lock and unlock the quartz. The mk5 is more precise, so its also more sensitive. Notice the notches on the turntable shaft behind the tonearm weight. The mk5  is just make to be finer calibrated.....your decks are fine, and more so probably your mk2s as well.

Oh and also, the infinite lubrication used on technics that was developed in the 70s is no match for the formula developed in the late 90s. Slick!!

FYI, there is no motor on these units. The only thing that makes these babies go round is various capacitors, resistors, and IC's... all which play a crucial role in control and maintaining the unit's speed. If you do not have enough torque, then the issue is probably with one of the main IC's (IC101, IC102, or IC201) - however, it could be any of the other circuits as well. A qualified technician should be able to pin point the problem and have it repaired for you. The repair on this isn't that expensive. I'm going to assume 350E is euro? If so, you might as well buy yourself a new Technics 1200 for that amount. If it is not euro, then this type of repair should cost you about $70-120 - including parts and labor. (these are the prices we charge in our NYC shop - for comparison purposes).
