The turntable speed is controlled by a belt, which is virtually a big rubber band. If it spinning too fast , then this means the belt is too tight. The only way this can happen is for the unit to be fitted with an incorrect size belt. You didn't say if you have a new unit, or a second-hand one, or if it has recently had the belt replaced. If it is a new unit and still under warranty, take it back to the retailer and ask them to fix it for you. Again, if you have recently had the belt replaced, take it back and ask them to do the job again, and this time to please use the correct belt. Be polite but firm....If you are a handyman, the job is not too hard to do yourself, and if you need any extra help, just ask, johnatwagga@yahoo.com. To buy the correct belt, you will need the name, model number, and preferably, the serial number. All of these can be found on the back of the unit. Good luck, and I hope this helps.

    This answer can't be right...This is a direct-drive turntable, and its speed is controlled by geometry of turntable and drive shaft and drive shaft speed, not belt tightness. A belt that's too tight doesn't change the geometry or increase the shaft speed.

My bang & olefson cd 50 will not play. hear "spinning" sound when disc inserted.


THE CD50 DOOR MECH IS BELT DRIVEN IF THE BELT IS WORN THE DOOR OPEN/CLOSE SWITCH WHICH IS TRIGGERED BY THE MAIN CAM UNDER THE MECH MAY NOT BE FULLY CLOSED OR THE SWITCH MAY NEED CLEANING,ITS A LEAF SWITCH.THE MOST COMMON REASON FOR THE DISC TO SPIN BUT NOT READING DISC IS DISC MOTOR NOT GETTING UP TO CORRECT SPEED.IT CAN BE REMOVED,DISMANTLED AND LUBRICATED BUT CARE MUST BE TAKEN TO MEASURE THE TURNTABLE HEIGHT,BEST MEASURED FROM THE BASE OF TURNTABLE TO CHASSIS WITH FEELER GAUGE,CAUTION THE MOTOR SHAFT HAS SEVERAL VERY FINE WASHERS INSTALLED DONT LOSE THEM.

The turntable belt wasn't atached and i need th know how to put it back on.


Good day. Lift the rubber mat off the platter and notice the two rather large holes in the plater. Put your thumb and forefinger through the holes and pull the platter off the turntable unit. Place the platter upside down and notice the inner rim which holds the belt. Place the new belt around the inner rim and replace the platter onto the unit. Now, with tweesers, working through one of the large holes, pull the belt onto the spindle motor. Once on, spin the platter by hand and make sure the belt does not slip off. Hope this helps

The turntable on my philco cd cassette and turntable unit does not turn. how to i access the belt, etc. to see whats wrong?


I had a similar issue with my Crosley turntable that I recently picked up... and after digging up the manual online all I had to do was lift up on the tone arm and move it to the right (past the holding mechanism) until it clicked, and voila, the turntable started spinning again.

I hope this helps!

I have a Philco Classic ... the turntable did not work. I pulled the arm back, as suggested, and it worked! But it really drags when I try to play an LP. What now?


what do you mean it drags? I noticed if you don't pull the arm back far enough,it will turn on,but the arm will drag foward scratching your record. Try pulling it bacl ALL the way and then it should give you no problems.

Turntable plays too fast


I have seen this problem before. Lift the turntable off. It might be held down with a clip around the center pole. Under it you will see a wheel that contacts the turn table and the center shaft of the motor. The motor shaft has 3 0r 4 elevations with different diameters. When you change the speed the wheel will move up and down to different diameter levels on the motor shaft. It must be free to move. It might need some oil at the moving parts as I suspect it is not moving properly.
Hope this helps.

JVC turntable--broken motor?


I just worked on a unit with the same problem. The spindle bearing will seize up if it is not oiled at least once a year. Take off the feet and split the top and bottom. Remove the three screws that hold on the spindle. Remove the E clip that holds on the gear. Put it in a vise and press off the gear and remove the shaft. Thoroghly clean off the shaft and the bearing. Lub with 3 in 1 oil and reassemble.
