Check if the platter is oke and aint stock, and otherwise is you spindle bearing defect.... A platter ain't goes from flat to wobble all of a sudden. And try to get the stuf second hand, or better, buy a better unit, not from stanton, but a refurbished 1200mk from technics is ok, if you sprin records. If you only listen, take a loke at the rega and pro-ject sites.....

SOURCE: Stanton ST150 turntable won't spin

Hello DeKay,

I just had a spindle lock issue this past Sunday at my gig. I had the turntables out in my car and brought them in. I let then warm up for 2hrs before plugging them in.

Everything was good. Then mid set my right side turntable started spinning really fast and then DEAD STOP.

I was pushing the platter and it really hard to turn. I took off the platter and tried to turn it with my hand. It was dead locked, WTF?!!

So I limped through with one turntables since I use Traktor Scratch Pro and made it through the whole night successfully.

I searched the net and it was suggested to lubricate the 1200 spindle with 15W40 motor oil. Since the motor design is indentical, I picked up some 10W40 motor oil since I couldn't find 15W40.

I oiled both turntables to be on the safe since. I tapped the spindle on the locked turntable to help loosen it.

I drove back home which is pretty much an hour drive and let the tables sit for another 2 hrs.

I decided to grab a thick towel and vice grips to work on the locked spindle.

Clamping down on the towel with the vice grips on the brass fitting for the platter I was able to free the spindle quite easily.

I was then able to turn it by hands so I did in both forward and reverse directions to work the oil down into the spindle bearings.

I put the platter back on and spun it manually to check for resistance, it was spinning nicely!

Plugged in the turntable, set the pitch at 0 and watched the stobe dots. There was no waver in the strobe dots. YAAAAAAAY!

My turntable is back to new and since I only use them on the road they stay stored most of the time.

So I would suggest just oiling the spindles every so often to keep them tip top.

Hope this helps you!

Peace,
DJ Quartz

Stanton T50 turntables.There is left/right play in the spindle which means the platter wobbles when pressure is put on it.Anyone know how to strip the top of the turntable to get to the spindle base?


Like most turntables, you have to strip the top of the platter of it's covers to get to what is holding the spindle in place. The cover might be held with glue. So you just have to force it off. You can glue it back after you have done. I suspect the spindle will be held by a horseshoe clip. Again another tricky thing to get off.

I cannot view any more information in your initial post after
There is no power getting to the except that you think the fuse is intact. From my experience, there is no transformer driving the turntable motor since these operate directly from the power mains. Can you show us a picture? Dave

Stanton t 60 turntable needle change


Well what's your purpose? Listening or dj'ing . For listening i prefer http://www.needledoctor.com/Ortofon-2M-Red-Phono-Cartridge?sc=9&category=-109 and for 50 dollar extra it comes complete on an om, which would be my choice, but is sounds nice,But clean first does records realllllll good. But tell me what are you really looning for, a lot depends on your mixer and speakers+ cables. Please don't buy the frozen cable--> bs which i may say with my phd. mi-elec. Most is really nonsens, but a lot is not! But your tt is too cheap for that..

Belt fell off my stanton turntables, so it will not spin


Ok, so put it back on.

It's very simple, just take the platter off, and out the belt on the bottom. Then put the platter back on, and you'll have to pinch the belt off the platter, and wrap it around the motor shaft.
