    In my research this seems to be a problem with every thorens td 170. Apparently many people have said theirs just kept slowing down more and more until the motor simply stopped.

You will have to disengage the mechanical switch off lift. Pretty nice for an automatic turntable.


Keep me posted.

I can't guarantee anything, but look up and call Stereo Component Systems in Boston Ma. When I was there, they still had quite a bit of Thorens parts available.

Turntable must be started by hand


This sounds like the stepper motor that drives the turntable is failing. Are there any good DJ shops near to you?

Cannot remove clip around spindle to lift off platten to get to change drive belt of my Thorens TD170


Hello mervyn_u,

The clip is a snap ring and it is best to use a pair of snap ring pliers to remove it without damaging or stretching it. Many people use a flathead screwdriver to pry off the ring but, again, you risk damaging the ring. You can purchase an inexpensive pair of these at your local Sears or other hardware store. They are simple to use.
