Question about Technics SL-BD22 Turntable
HELP!!! My 12-year-old turntable was working perfectly until I was using it heavily last week to transfer my old vinyls to CD. After several hours, the turntable started noticeably slowing down, so I stopped to let it "rest". The next day it started out fine until a couple of hours later it started crawling again and the pitch adjustment did not seem to work. When even the resting did not help, I ordered a new belt. Unfortunately that didn't help either - it barely moves at all now. I've spent almost $50 for the belt and a new stylus. It would almost be cheaper to buy a new turntable rather than taking it to have it fixed, but I want to see if it can be fixed first. Thank you! Jackie
I'm wondering where to get the motor for $19.99. couldn't find anything but uk sites that sold it. thanks!

First and foremost, are you sure you installed the correct replacement belt, and installed it correctly? Just ruling out the obvious. Now, if you installed the belt correctly, then the only other thing that could cause this is a bad motor. Not an expensive part, but with labor, it might be cheaper to just buy a new one. Figure the part itself is about You will more than likely be able to remove the cartridge/stylus and use it on your new turntable, just make sure the tonearm is the same style as your existing turntable - P-MOUNT Tonearm. If you buy another belt drive, you might even be able to keep the belt you purchased as a back up - might fit! Here is some part info on your turntable: - Belt - Part #SJY90080-3 - $5.99 - Motor - MOTOR, 4 VDC, .2 WATTS - Part #SDMB5E - $19.99 Labor - 30min This is just to give you an idea of what it would cost to replace the motor. I put the belt part # on there, just so you could verify that you bought the correct part. Hope this helps some. - Justin
