Technics SL-BD22 Turntable Motor


Thank you for replying. You said that the motor is no longer available. So, I was wondering what Panasonic sells that they claim is the motor for this model turntable? Did Panasonic buy out Technics at some point? They have a picture of my turntable on their website and the part # that you gave the other person in September of 2007 matches the one that they are selling. I did find a couple of turntables for sale on various websites but I'd hate to have to buy them if I can just get a new motor for it. I'd hate to have to get a new one or a different model (I should say) because I like this one and I don't think there are any models out there that have pitch control on them. I really like that feature as some vinyl has to be adjusted for speed either way (usually slower) to sound correct. Anyway, thanks again for your help and please respond ASAP.

Panasonic has always been the parent company of Technics. The Technics line was developed by Panasonic (aka Matsushita Electric) back in 1965. Today, the only the DJ arm of the Technics brand survives. The consumer Technics line (like your turntable) have all been discontinued about 10 years ago.

As for the motor, if Panasonic says they have it, grab it. Part number I show for it - #SDMB5E - $19.99

How do i install a belt on technics turntable sl-bd22

If you remove the rubber pad, you should be able to grasp the metal table. A gentle tap onto the center spindle while pulling up on the table should release the table. Place the new belt onto the underside of the table. Replace the table onto the spindle. Then feed the belt over the motor hub.

After 14 years my Technics SL-BD22 Turntable has a disfunction The electric motor turns slow.

Your turntable is probably belt driven so most likely motor is turning okay but belt is slipping.
They are easy to change, first just lift rubber mat on platter and you should be able to see the belt through a access hole in the platter.

Turntable wont spin

If everything seems ok with the power , there is usally a small microswitch that sends power to the motor when the tone arm is moved to the start of the record.
The switch might be bad or the lever that actuates it (connected to the tone arm) might be sticking. You may have to take the bottom cover off or remove the platter to see it.
Also make sure the belt is looped over the motor shaft. If the motor runs but the belt still doesnt turn, belt might be bad.

Nope, very simple...

1) Remove the platter - just lift up
2) Underneath the platter, you'll see a small lip section
3) Wrap the belt around this lip
4) Put platter back on turntable
5) Rotate platter until you see the motor shaft through the holes on the platter - a brass round looking piece
6) Pinch the belt around the motor shaft.
7) That's it.

Technics SL-BD22 Turntable Motor

Unfortunately there are no parts available for your model, with the exception of the belt. Everything has been discontinued.

If it started working good after you reconnected it, then maybe the problem might be a loose connection, or a resistor that might not be working properly, which can be checked by any competent service technician. Resistors are generic components, so as long as it is the correct rating, your technician will be able to replace it. However, the motor, is a different story. Unless you find the exact same turntable and strip it for parts. If the resistors are good, then more than likely the motor is just dying, and again, this is no longer available.

Wish I could be of more help.
