Question about Crosley 4-in-1 Entertainer CD Shelf System

1 Answer

My turntable doesn't work at all...

I am frustrated because I have only had this Crosley radio for 2 years, used the turntable maybe twice, went to put a record on and the turntable doesn't work at all now.
So I opened her up... There's a little belt that's no longer attached to anything just laying inside under the turntable.  I have no idea what it's supposed to look like or loop around.  It isn't obvious except in 2 places and then there is too much slack left.  There is also nothing "turning" when the "Phono" power is on.  So that makes me wonder if there's another issue.

Please help!!

One advantage of living in a large metropolitan area is the variety of stuff to buy.
You might try a radio, or TV repair store, and if they have no belt assortment, ask them who does.
Another option is a car parts or a plumbing store, where there are "O" ring assortments.
Perhaps a hardware store ( such as Lowe's, Home Depot, or Menard"s will have some belt or "O" ring assortments.
God bless your efforts.

Try a Radio Shack universal replacement power supply like 273-1773 or 273-1776 or 273-1667 with the proper "Adaptaplug" that goes with it. It should do nicely and be sure to observer the proper polarity of the plug so that it will match your unit. Good luck.

SOURCE: Crosley turntable problem

Some internal component is obviously stuck or malfunctioning, You can open it up and check the movable components, if under warranty, I would call the company first. Otherwise if you are like me, you would open it up and start trying to figure out what isn't working, maybe a gear is having problems, I'm sorry but without looking at it myself I don't know for sure since the arm does move, which means the motor can't be bad, maybe the alignment is off for the gears. My advice is call Crosley first and see if this is a known problem to occur and check about the warranty.

The solution is to replace the AC Power transformer. I have the same problem with my Crosley 4in1 machine. I trouble shooted it and got it to start working when I replaced the AC Power Transformer. The problem still is that It needs to be replaced with the correct 'Power Rated' Transformer.

Wild guess but try this with the power off. Rotate the platter clockwise about 5-10 turns. You may feel internal mechanical engagement as you do it. The cueing mechanism may cycle it through its motion and return it to the rest.

I have had my crosley cr66 rochester for 8 years. all of a sudden, the turntable wobbles when i put a record on it.

Pull the platter off and look to see if it has a bearing, if it does try and find a replacement for it.

Haven't used the turntable in years. Went to use it today and the turntable doesn't begin turning when the arm is lifted. Everything else works. Thanks, Al

If this is a belt driven turntable, then you have to replace the belt, as this units gets old the belts loosen up as well.

Turntable does NOT turn.Crosley CR66 vintage Radio and Turntable

Try this - GENTLY move the phono arm to the RIGHT until you hear a click Tof course, do this after you turn on the power via the volume dial and set the other dial to"phono"). Doing this turns on the turntable when you haven't used it in awhile. This worked for us, hope it works for you.

If it doesn't work, you can check the belt by removing the tiny clip at the center post and gently lift the turntable platform/tray to peek at the motor and belt underneath. The pulley is on the right at the 2 o'clock position, the belt should be in contact with it.
