If the belt came off, it needs to be replaced. They stretch over time and wear out. Plus, your not supposed to put your fingers directly on the belts since the oil from your fingers will deteriorate the rubber quickly! sounds crazy, but true. If you have a local repair shop, generally old and dirty! Those guys are usually the best and will give you a fair price for the belt and install it for you while you wait. If your not a techno person, let a techno person fix it before you try it. If they let you watch, then you will have learned how to do it yourself the correct way and save some $ on the next one! Best of luck! Hope this helps

How do i put turntable belt back on?

you must first get the platter off [the bit that you put the record on ]
this will prise off with equal pressure on both sides but remove the rubber mat on the platter first [it might have a little clip on the centre spindle if so just get a screwdriver and push the clip off ] then just jiggle the platter with your hands until it frees , when off you should see a small round disc thats connected to the motor that turns the platter via a rubber belt , you just connect the new belt around this and then connect the other end to the platter very fiddly , not being familiar with kenwood turntables i could be totally wrong here and the belt might go to another pulley in which case you might need more than one belt , your best bet is to get the platter off and let me know what it looks like

The belt normally wraps around the bottom of the metal platter. Put the platter back on the turntable, and you'll see holes on opposite sides of the patter. Just pinch the belt out a little, and wrap around the motor shaft - should be a brass shaft assembly.

Fixing a Kenwood KD 491F turntable

The reason why the audio is low, is that todays receivers do not have a phono input, and these types of inputs are differant then the ones of today. You will need whats called a phono preamp, and one should still be available from Radio shack. Or you can go here to find out more about them: To reseat the belt, take off the rubber mat on the turntabe disc. Install the belt around the inside ridge, there should be a couple of holes on the platter disc. Install the patter back onto the center spindle. Turn the platter around till you see the motor pully through one of the holes in the platter. Take the belt that is around the turntable platter, and pull it over to the motor pulley. Good Luck
