Platter Grinding Noise on Aiwa PX-E860

I started notice a loud grinding noise from time to time on the back of the music and now the noise is continuos. It's coming directly through the mechanic motion of the platter. Whenever the platter is spinning, with or without a record on and with the turntable connected to the receiver or not. Took off the platter but did not sea any strange thing inside (anyway I can't be sure as it was the first time in my life that took off the platter from a turntable.) Any help on what to do? One more detail. Sometimes, after not using the thing for many hours, I put a record on and it plays it without making the noise for two, three or four songs, but then starts again. And, as I said, the horrible and loud grinding noise is not coming through the speakers. Thanks for any advice you can give.

If the platter is scraping, then the spindle bearing that holds the platter up, has either loosened or has gone bad. If you need more assistance, or would like to inquire about a repair, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. Thank you.

Try to determine if the noise is caused by the motor or the platter touching something. Try moving the platter by hand. Press on it whilst turning to see if it's catching. If you can get the platter off you could try some silicone grease on places you think touch one another.

SOURCE: Platter not spinning properly

Make sure the platter is seated correctly. Lift it off, and set it back down. Also check to see that there is no debris or foreign matter stuck underneath the platter or where the platter sits.

Check to make sure the platter itself is not bent or warped. Do this by removing the platter (lift up), and then put it on a flat table/surface. Look at it from the side. Is it warped?

Hope this helps

Don't understand. If it doesn't turn on, how do you know the electronics are ok? More than likely your transformer shorted, and will need to be replaced.

SOURCE: Platter/motor won't turn

I don't know the answer, but you have written one of the finest, most comprehensive problem descriptions I have come across. In mechanical scenarios, that is priceless. I'm sure a turntable guru will see it and go, "aw. I know what that is". Good Luck.

Lift felt on platter and and lift the platter section off the unit by putting your thumb and forefinger through the two large holes and pull upwards.There should not be any special routing for the belt and should go directly onto the spindle motor to your platter. Place the belt around the inside rim of the platter while it is still off the unit. Now replace the platter and move the platter around until you see the spindle motor through one of the holes. Use some tweezers to manouvre the belt onto the spindle motor. On some units you will have to lay the belt out inside the unit, replace the platter and manouvre the belt onto the platter. Hope this helps

Reconnect the belt on an AIWA PX-E860 turntable


To replace a turntable drive belt.

Before starting any work on your turntable disconnect it from the mains power supply. Remove the stylus or complete headshell to prevent any accidental stylus damage.
1. Remove the rubber platter mat to expose the platter.
2. Put your thumb and forefinger through the two round holes either side of the centre spindle and lift the platter off. You may need to give the centre spindle a light tap (whilst applying upward pressure) with a screwdriver handle or some similar tool that will not leave any marks or damage.
3. Remove the old belt and wipe the platter and motor pulleys with an alcohol swab to remove any old belt residue.
4. Place the new belt around the platter pulley making sure it is sitting flat without any twists.
5. Flip platter over to the right way up. A correct fitting belt will stay put and an over sized belt will fall off.
6. You will see 1 or 2 large rectangle or square shaped cut outs in the platter near to the outer edge. Through one pinch up the belt and slip a finger or belt hook between the platter pulley and the belt gripping the belt ready to fit over the motor pulley.
7. Align the centre hole of the platter with the spindle and place platter back into position keeping a grip on the belt.
8. Slip belt over motor pulley and give the platter a light clockwise rotation to ensure the belt is riding correctly.
9. Replace the rubber mat and then run the turntable to ensure correct operation.
You have now successfully completed the process.

I would like to have a diagram to show how to fit the belt for Aiwa turntable PX-E860K


Good day. I assume that you have lifted the platter off the table. On the inside of the platter you will notice a second ring, or rim. the belt should be put on the outside of the second rim while the platter is still in your hands. Next, slide back the platter and look for the spindle running the platter through one of the big holes in the platter. Slip the belt onto the spindle and turn with your hand to make sure it runs freely. Hope this helpsmicmor100.jpg

On my Aiwa PX-E860 the automatic mechanism is failing - when i thry to manually place the stylus the platter does not turn - is there a way to by pass the automatic part and just have it manual?


Select the record speed.
Press the 2 down arrows or triangles( placed side by side) - This the same thing you press if you want the styles to lift during play
Place the stylus on the desired spot.
Press the same button again.
The stylus will drop to the desired spot & continue playing

If you have the manual look it up, else download one from this site after becoming a member(its free)

What size belt do I need?


There are zillions of belts out there. I hope you still have the broken one which will give you the profile of a new belt. Measure the diameter of the sub-platter under the platter. The belt you need well be a slight stretch fit. Then, with the platter back in place, slip the belt over the motor pulley making sure it is not twisted.
