SOURCE: what size belt do I need?
There are zillions of belts out there. I hope you still have the broken one which will give you the profile of a new belt. Measure the diameter of the sub-platter under the platter. The belt you need well be a slight stretch fit. Then, with the platter back in place, slip the belt over the motor pulley making sure it is not twisted.

Lift the platter off the turntable. You can identify the
motor spindle by using your fingers to turn the round shaft which rotates
freely. Remove the rubber mat off the platter. Place the belt around the outside
of the drum on the bottom of the platter.
From the top of the platter, place your finger in one of the platter
holes and tension the belt so it will not fall off or twist. Griping the
platter trough the holes while keeping tension on the belt place the platter on
the turntable aligning your finger with the belt to the motor spindle. Place the section of the belt on your finger over
the motor spindle. Replace the rubber mat on the platter.

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

SOURCE: aiwa lx 70 turntable needle arm
This is not a solution but it is information. I just got one of these turntables and the platter rotates but the tonearm does not move. I took it apart after downloading the service manual and found that there are two small thin rubber belts that due to age have fallen apart and "melt" when you try to pick up the pieces. One controlled the sideways movement of the tonearm "carriage", the other controlled the lifting and lowering of the tonearm. The replacements are expensive (I think around $18 each) and in trying to pop loose a worm gear with a pulley buit into it, so that I could try a cheap rubber band out just to see if the unit would work with new bands, I broke the stiff plastic "retainer" that by its shape was designed to be pushed out of the way a bit to allow the worm gear to be removed. The service manual, by the way, had all sorts of information about how to make fine adjustments, but said nothing at all about how to replace the belts. Unless removed there was no way to put the replacement band in place over the gear/pulley combination because there was no exposed end to slip a complete band over. So I think it was a bad design, made worse by the aging of the components that made the bands melt and the plastic "keeper" brittle so that instead of flexing out the way it broke. So I'm going to recycle the components. I did not find any reviews to tell me how good a component unit this was, so before you hire a pro to try to fix this unit you need to figure out if it will be worth it to you in the long run. Anyway, good luck.
