Question about Audio Players & Recorders
How can I get my dual model 1228 turntable paltter to spin, it will not, the motor is not spinning, but I can tell it is on?. It could be lubricating issue, or is it something like a motor starter, if it as one?. Please let me know. Thank you.
If the motor is not spinnig then it is probably seized. These motors are very robust and rarely need replacement parts. Remove both the top and bottom bearings, clean shaft and bearings with solvent and then fill bearings with light machine oil. The bearings have a sponge inside which will soak up lots of oil for years of trouble free use. Once reassembled, tap the bottom bearing while the motor is spinnig and the bearings will centre themselves. If the idler and it's mechanism is working ok as well then you should feel lots of torque from the from the platter when it is spinning.

Have a 1212 with the similar problem, there are 2 bearings that should be lubricated on the top and bottom of the motor, also your idler wheel may be glazed or dirty. Get a simple emery board ( nail file) use the fine side, clean up all filings, then clean with rubbing alcohol, or rubber wheel cleaner. Be sure not to touch surfaces, also clean platter where idler touches. I did mine while it was running to avoid getting flat spots on the idler. I was surprised, it worked!. email me if you have any other problems, am going to rebuild a 1228 today (firstname.lastname@example.org)
