I had this problem. In my case it manifested itself mostly in start-up, and I found that I had to move the tonearm past the 1st track to get the TT to spin. I cleaned the contacts on the micro-switch (on the mechanism, from below) with extra-fine sandpaper. It worked.

I'm going through the same thing with my old JVC too, and I've concluded that the problem must b e in the drive motor. I too replaced the belt and it still plays slow in both the 33 and 45 RPM settings.I hate trying to fix a problem just by changing parts and I also hate paying for repairs when buying a new one is such a better solution. Good luck

Why does the turntable on my JVC AL-E300 stop when the arm drops on to the record. Just changed belt.


Does it restart if you manually lift the arm up?
If it does then you might have not put the belt on right. Another reason is that the problem was not the belt, but a motor showing the signs that it wasn't coping when under load. This could be caused by grease or muck inside the motor or in the drive functions. However the motor could be faulty.

take the platter & belt back off, then check to see if the motor spins, if it does the belts the wrong size or put on wrong, if it doesn't spin then you better get your butter & jam out, to put on your toast.

JVC turntable AL-E300 turntable slowing down when tone arm moves iacross


Even if the belt looks fine it's almost certainly the problem. You mentioned "cleaning" - if you got any kind of fluid on the belt it might act as a lubricant and reduce the friction between the belt and the drive wheel, causing the turntable to slow when the tone arm puts a drag on it. The problem may go away when the belt dries out.

What replacement stylus do I need for a JVC AL-A151 turntable?


Since it's possible to fit any cartridge in most turntables the answer is to look at the make and number of the cartridge installed into the arm of your turntable. Put that into Google and the stylus should come up.

I have a JVC turntable (AL-A155TN/AL-A155TNX). I haven't used it in about ten years. I hooked it up today. I played four records on it. Two were fine. The other two, however, started off fine


The only thing that might cause something like that is a build up of static. You can buy anti-static products for records and turntables. I tend to use an anti-static spray which also cleans the records.

JVC Turntable model AL A1 BKX , need to know how to adjust speed


I have just fixed this problem on my Aiwa PX3800 with improvisation.
The platter was rotating too slowly, I didn't know how much too slow only that the records sounded wrong.
I imagined the belt, motor and platter as a bicycle gear and so simply increased the gear... I achieved this by winding a thin strip of a electrical insulation tape around the motor head to increase it's radius (like changing up to a larger front cog on a bicycle gear).
I could then time the rotations and remove a layer or two of the tape accordingly until I have achieved a perfect 45rpm. 33 is still way out but I only listen to 45s!
Be sure to trim excess tape from the motor head with a craft knife/scalpel or it'll stick to the platter.
Poor man fix up.

More than likely your motor might be bad. There is nothing else that controls the speed. Are you sure you purchased the correct size belt? Turn on the unit, without connecting the belt, and touch the motor shaft, and see if it fluctuates. You can also just get a marker, and marker a point on the motor shaft. When you turn it on, it will act as a visual indication as to it's speed.
