Question about Audio Players & Recorders
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
