SOURCE: tonearm lifter in UP position - how to fix

I have also had this problem with the same model turntable. I opened mine up and the problem seems to have been that the grease on the arm lift and cueing lever was gumming up the linkage between the two. (I suspect that my turntable hadn't been used in some time.) I managed to free up the parts by manually working the the arm lift (pressing it down) several times. I'm not sure that I needed to open up the chasis for this fix but it did help me to see what was going on. Good luck with yours.

Hi, all model Thorens have the same motor. It is the power supply that varies from 110v to 220v models. Cheers john. Stylus City.

How to rewire thorens tp16 arm wand


It all depends on the type of tonearm. Are you sure the wires are bad? They're pretty tough. Please take a picture of the tonearm and cartridge connections and visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. Thank you.

After an album side is finished, my Thorens TD 185 turntable disc refuses to stop spinning.


Some turntables do not return the arm to the rest. However if it did so previous then something could have broken or become out of place underneath the turntable. The only way to check is look under the turntable by removing the base and looking for signs of damage.

My denon 26-f turntable stylus arm lifts about 2 minutes before end of record. how can this be adjusted on the turntable?


Hi Richard, at the base of the tonearm look for a rubber grommet. Under it you will find a screw. Adjust clockwise slightly to make the tonearm lift further along. Fine tune antil sorted. If the adjustment is not at tonearm base remove the rubber platter mat. If the platter has an access hole in it rotate platter so the hole is near the tonearm and look for scew to adjust.

Thorens TD 166 Mk V1 (UK). Have moved to Canada


Just a thought but wouldn't it be easier to find some kind of power supply converter to knock the 60HZ down to 50HZ?

Thorens TD 145 does not auto stop


Where did you find the Thorens manual?
Is it the mkII one or simply for the TD-145?
Thank you.

Thorens TD-124/II


Well, with a turntable that old, if it hasn't been restored it likely needs to be. Could be the power cord, the motor or the clutch.

Easrly stop


You will have to disengage the mechanical switch off lift. Pretty nice for an automatic turntable.


Keep me posted.
