Hiya, check and be sure the turntable is plugged into correct inputs, "phono"

If thats OK, then probably is the stylus but could also be the cartridge itself. Check the wires on the back of cartridge make sure they are fixed properly. If all Ok, then start with a new stylus first.

Hope it helps

Does old Zenith Allegro Console Stereo - 8 track/AM/FM/turntable, have a belt drive phono? I can see metal gears to drive the stuck turntable .


The manufacturers of such items would usually buy in such hardware as record turntables from fairly standard catalogues.

One popular brand of turntable was the BSR but the design of other brands were similar. The metal gears aren't for driving the turntable but to drive the multichange mechanism so when one record has finished playing another will drop from the stack loaded onto the extended centre spindle.

This type of turntable is driven by a synchronous motor with a multidiameter spindle via a moveable idler wheel equipped with a soft rubber tyre. Lack of maintenance causes many problems and as the rubber tyre ages it tends to harden and lose traction on the inside of the steel turntable so when the record reaches the end and the metal gears engage there is insufficient torque and everything stops.
It is for that reason many older examples have had the multichange removed or disabled.

Removing the turntable centre motif should reveal a circlip which when removed will allow the turntable to be removed for maintenance.

Old Zenith Allegro Console Stereo (made in England). - Turntable will not turn; tone arm does not move, even on "manual."


remove the flat rubber platen cover to expose the lock ring at center (horseshoe clip) remove this lock ring and pull the platen straight up and off , under there you should find a rubber tire and the drive motor shaft , turn unit on , you should see motor turn and then it should move rubber tire , if not , your going to need to replace it or clean it up and lube it

Can you replace the turntable in a vintage Zenith Console sterio with a newer turntable?


Generally speaking all you need to do is find the left and right channels leads from the old deck to the amp, cut them off or if thy plug in somewhere unplug them, then you can connected the playback leads of the new deck to the amp and it will then play back.
