Need free owner's manual for a Detrola record player Model KM837

The piece that attaches to the arm that turns the turntable on has come loose and I need a diagram to show me how to put it back in order to get my turntable to work. Can some one please help? My mom was given one of these from a friend's dad who passed away recently. It seems to work great, but we'd like an owner's manual so we can figure out how to work everything.

You have probably done this, but I had same problem on one I was given with no manual. I couldn't get the turn table to turn and by accident I move the arm to the right, away from record and it began turning. Hope that helps.

    Thanks so much. We were pretty much in the same predicament; received the product from a estate sale and had no manual. Now we just need to figure out how to get the CD drawer to open. Any suggestions??

Hope this helps everyone. I discovered through looking the Detrola record player up on Amazon, for the specs. The company that makes these is Electrohome. Here is the website, which provides access to support for their products.

My Aiwa px e860 record player arm is too heavy how do I adjust it?


If you put the maker and model number into Google you will find a service manual free for the make. That should help you sort out the problem. It's just a question of getting the weight at the other end of the arm adjusted right.

Can i use a crosley stylus in my detrola km837 record player


Stylus will only fit into certain cartridges. You have two options here. You can look up the cartridge number and make on your Detrola. It should be on the cartridge somewhere. Then search for the stylus. Or you can remove the Detrola cartridge and fit a new cartridge and stylus. As long as the cartridge will fit into the arm of your deck, plus it's the right type - ie: magnetic if the old cartridge was magnetic! Or ceramic - again if the old cartridge was...
Then you can use any make or model cartridge you want. As the quality of the sound can be improved - albeit paying more money for it - by having a good quality cartridge and stylus, it might be best in the long run to change the cartridge.

I have a califone 1430k record player, and the arm is loose. It looks like the spring must have come loose. It is still attached by wires, but nothing else. If I take it apart, do you think I could fi


The arm should have a pin through it that secures it to the bracket that is attached to the arm bearing. There should be a long spring that is used to adjust the tracking force and it is underneath the arm.
The arm can be taken off by taking the player apart, unsoldering the wires from the arm and unscrewing the nut on the turntable bearing.
Because the arm mounts to a soft rubber grommet it should feel a little loose.
Hope this helps.

Lots of Turntable belts are very much universal. If they are the same size there's no reason to think it won't work on another make.

Very often a small belt has fallen off or broken. A look inside should locate it. To find a replacement belt, just measure the diameter of the old one in MM and then put the words "drive belt --MM" into Google. Select the size close to yours.

Detrola record player wont spin, even after moving arm to far right.


I suggest you lift up the turntable matt and see if you can see a belt, which has either broke or come off. You might need a new belt!
