Attachment for balance weight is broken

What model is it? Where on the rod is the break? Most of these counterweight rods just screw in to the mount. If you can extract the broken bit, and have a metalworking shop cut a new thread on the end, you are good.

I just set up my audio technica AT-PL120 for the first time, and I can't stop the tonearm from drifting back to the rest. I can't get the stylus to stay straight unless I add more on to the counterweight,...

KEEP THE ANTI SKATE AT 0 FOR NOW,then you need 2 balance the tonearm with the rear counterweight so it just hovers at around the height of the you need to zero the gauge on the rear counterweight being carefull not to turn the counterweight,then check again that the tonearm still hovers.then screw counterweight inwards untill the dial on counterweight reads between 1.5- 2 grams dependin on tracking weight of cartridge.then adjust antiskate 2 whatever u set the tracking weight to.i would also double check with a spirit level ur level surface

hi there ....this problem is usuallly caused by a problem with the the drum suspension...broken/ dislodged spring...broken damer at bottom of drum assembly (shock absorber)...cracked or broken base on machine...(will require welding)...broken or dislodged counterweight
these roblems are generally all repairable

Kenmore Series 80 pounds & jumps

Check the Vibration damper rods to be sure that...
1. They are there and mount is solid.
2. If they are broken in 1/2.
3. The plastic knuckle mounts are not missing/broken.
4. There is oil in the shock absorber/spring section of the rods.

Also - there are suspension springs on the bottom of the tub that could be broken and/or missing.

Replace/repair as necessary.

Whirlpool duet Gray ceramic seal broke.

If you are talking about the counterweights, they can be ordered on line at Just type in your model number and look under the "Tub and Basket Parts" heading for items 9 and 15. Now depending on which counterweight broke (they are located on the back and front of the tub), the procedures to replace differ slightly. Can you place post back and let me know if it is the front or the back counterweight that is broken? If I am incorrect about the part you are describing, please elaborate a bit more and let me know which part it is.

Our praise band keyboard has a key that won't return to the "up" position.

With the "Sing-spiration" only 3 hours away, we, John Cobb (the keyboard player) and I, decided to jump in and find the problem.  We removed the covering on the backside, removed the keyboard from the base, and when we saw the bottom of the keys, found a broken counterweight.  It was from the mid-G key that wouldn't work.  John said he doesn't use the high-G key much, so we took the good counterweight off of high-G and replaced the broken weight.  After replacing enough screws to keep the keyboard assembled, John "tested" it for the nites playability.  All is great!  We'll go to the local music store today and order a new counterweight.  

The Sing-spiration was a great success!
