I live in California but I do have a memorex system with the same components. My belt fell off my turntable so it didn't turn. It took a bit of patience but I was able to get the belt back on. The turntable is held down by a clip on the spindle. The belt might have to be replaced if it keeps falling off. It will do that if its been used alot. While the turntable is off, if you move the arm you can see if the turntable motor will turn on too. That would be the only other problem you can have on that unit. The repair cost might be more than what the unit cost. Just be patient and careful and you probably can fix it yourself.
Belts are like big rubber bands. If they wear out and begin to stretch with age, there is no longer enough tension to move the turntable. They may also start and then quit once it warms up and the belt gets warm and expands. See how loose it is once it has been running.
After removing the rubber mat, you should see a clip on the spindle that keeps the turntable on. But you will still not be able to remove the platter until you remove the unit from the cabinet. Remove the bottom cover and flip the two clips and the turntable assembly can be removed.
If the turntable is belt driven you may have a stretched and slipping belt that needs replacement. This seems most likely and is simple to fix. You will have to lift off the turntable to see the mechanism beneath. It may be held on by a nut or clamp. A web search for the model name and "dirve belt" may yield a replacement.
If it is driven directly by a motor without a belt, the motor is probably dying. Replacement more involved, expensive, and hard to justify, unless you're really into vinyl.
above is a generic video that applies to almost all belt driven turntables including yours that will show how to install the belt and a few other things. maybe something in the video will clear up exactly how to get the belt on right.
if motor won't spin, spin it with your fingers, sometimes a "dead spot" developes on these motors. if it then starts on it's own, just let it run for a few hrs and the problem may solve itself for a long long time.
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.
