SOURCE: 1960s stereogram.bsr turntable turning to do fast.

If I can understand you right, the turntable is running fast. I don't think you need a new motor, generally the deck will run slow if the motor is knackered (or not at all). What you need to do is remove the platter, you will find a horseshoe bracket holding it on at the spindle (it may be covered up so you wil have to remove the cover part often a silver disc). The most likely cause will be the rubber idler tyre being worn damaged etc or out of place. There could be grease dirt or something else causing the problem.

Does old Zenith Allegro Console Stereo - 8 track/AM/FM/turntable, have a belt drive phono? I can see metal gears to drive the stuck turntable .

The manufacturers of such items would usually buy in such hardware as record turntables from fairly standard catalogues.

One popular brand of turntable was the BSR but the design of other brands were similar. The metal gears aren't for driving the turntable but to drive the multichange mechanism so when one record has finished playing another will drop from the stack loaded onto the extended centre spindle.

This type of turntable is driven by a synchronous motor with a multidiameter spindle via a moveable idler wheel equipped with a soft rubber tyre. Lack of maintenance causes many problems and as the rubber tyre ages it tends to harden and lose traction on the inside of the steel turntable so when the record reaches the end and the metal gears engage there is insufficient torque and everything stops.
It is for that reason many older examples have had the multichange removed or disabled.

Removing the turntable centre motif should reveal a circlip which when removed will allow the turntable to be removed for maintenance.

Hey there, After a power outage the motor that drives the platter "BSR turntable" does not function. Is there a fuse or some other likely suspect?

If the motor is directly connected to a mains supply then the chances are that when power was restored it burnt out or damaged the motor itself. Following the mains lead into the unit should answer where the power goes. If it goes to a transformer and it's associated power supply the problem will be found there.

I need a service manual for the BSR McDonald CA 50 turntable

BSR tended to make old style turntables, ones with a 78rpm speed on. I don't the model in question, but if it is a one of these, there's not much to them. Basically a rubber tyre runs inside the rim of the platter, while the tyre is pushed on a mains powered motor, in at least 3 different positions (depending on the speed). The tyre moves up and down depending which speed is selected.
Speed faults are caused by either a bad motor, or muck, oil, or grease in it.
A faulty tyre that is worn and doesn't push on the motor or platter anymore or not hard enough. Plus of course tyre height setting wrong.

Bsr McDonald 25cx turntable sounds terrible when I try to play a record.

Hard to say, but could be either a faulty cartridge or the wires connected are wrong or off.

I have a BSR C197 Turntable that won't switch from "off" to "on". It just sticks on off. Everything turns manually, but I cant move the little lever from off to on.

You will need to open the deck up from underneath. This should reveal some mechanical cause as to why the switch does work.
