Most modern day turntables are semi-automatic. You move the tonearm from the rest post
over to the record and the platter will start turning. There is a small microswitch inside
either below the arm base or near. There should be a flat bar connected to the base of the arm
and this will actuate the microswitch. The switch is wired in series to the rotation motor.
Solution: 1. Obviously verify the belt is on. Take off the rubber mat and rotate the platter.
The rotation motor is on the left and it has a small brass spindle. The belt should
be visable through the holes in the platter. If not pull the platter gently up, there will
be some resistance. The belt wraps around a smaller inner ring on the underside
of the platter and the rotation motor spindle. If it is degraded it will be stuck to the
platter or fall apart. Generally there 3 common sizes. ( 21.4 / 23.6 / 25 inch) they
readily available on E-Bay, search term "turntable belt".
2. Obviously check power.
3. Check the microswitch, it should "click", verify with ohm meter.
4. Some turntables have a "cut" or stop function. The arm must return first to rest before
starting again, again the microswitch is the trigger.

I just had my L-A11 in to 'the needle doctor' (Jerry Raskin's shop in dinkytown, Minneapolis) We had the same problem with the platter.
After pulling (hard) to no effect on the platter - using the holes near the spindle and pushing simultaneously on the spindle. The tech next got out a small hammer, and while pulling on those same holes in the platter, he gave it a sharp 'whack' on the spindle with the hammer, and it came right off (the platter). I would have been to feint of heart to do it, but it worked great.
