The turntable system consists of the motor, the coupler, the turntable support with rollers, and the tray.

You can see and hear a video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand.

If yours won't rotate or it sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor or plastic coupler.

To replace either, you need to unplug power, then remove the bottom cover of the oven.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

SOURCE: Garrard Type A Turntable Speed settings are off, except the 45RPM

Forget solution #1

Here's what you do:

Your Garrard Type A is most likely an idler-drive deck (With a rubber wheel driving the turntable).

- Under the rubber mat there's a "C" shaped clamp to be found around the spindle. Remove that and keep safe. Now remove the platter and behold the 'guts' of the monster. On the left you should see a thick rubber wheel with a metal core inside, directly under that wheel you'll find a 3 step pulley protruding from under the frame.

Plug in the AC and turn on. Carefully look at the pulley. It should spin fast. If not, immediately unplug the power otherwise you'll burn out the motor. If the pulley spins too slow, the specially inserted factory grease/oil may have "set" or dried out during the silent years..

The same goes for the grease/ oil which is inserted in the spindle-bus. We'll get there later.

- Make sure the AC is OFF! High Voltage Inside!

- Lift the frame from its casing/ plinth and make sure it's completely supported when upside down, so you don't damage the arm!

- Locate the BIG motor! :-)

- The lower bearing screws may be 'glued' on with red lacquer. (Shellac) (This was done to prevent repairs by users (Warranty Expiration)
- Unscrew those and lift off the bearing. (a light tap with a small mallet may break the lacquer and make it easier to unscrew. DON'T TRY to unscrew forcefully as the screws may get damaged! They're made of brass I thought. )
- Clean it out with a tissue or a non-pilling piece of cloth. The Top bearing can be found under the motor-pulley which is fastened with 3 small screws. (Note! This bearing doesn't need greasing 'cause it's only there for support!)

Once cleaned out insert the tiniest little amount of Singer-Oil (Sowing Machine Oil) into the LOWER bearing. and put it back over the motor shaft. Screw the bearing back on. Make sure the screws are not too tight as, once again you may damage the heads. There! You just re-greased your turntable motor!

Next: If the speed selector lever is hard to move. Apply a small dab of vaseline onto the frame right next to the lever. Gently move it to and fro a few times and that's that.

- Spindle Bus:

This is somewhat more risky because this is practically what makes the turntable! The spindle was inserted in the factory by pressure, oil first, spindle second, forcing all the air out, leaving a film of oil around the spindle-shaft..

- Locate the cast-iron spindle-bus. Almost on top there you'll see a screw somewhere (again sealed with the red shellac)

- Gently try to loosen it. AGAIN: Do NOT use excessive force!
After unscrewing keep it safe.

- Turn the upside down frame over again to its normal position.

- Gently try to lift the spindle out of its bus.
DON'T YANK IT as this piece of stainless steel was crafted with extremely high precision! Then again, the vacuum won't let ya, heheh.

- Degrease with a non-pilling cloth or tissue drenched in thinner/ pure alcohol. Use a pencil and non-pilling cloth to clean out and degrease the spindle bus. Never use tissues as these may tear leaving residue in the spindle bus which decreases performance!

- Now poor some Singer-Oil onto the spindle and a small drop in the spindle-bus. Slowly rotate it between your fingers so the oil can distribute itself all over the spindle.

-Put the spindle back in its bus and let it sink in under its own weight (Get some coffee. Watch the Superbowl, Take a vacation, cause this may take a while!) DO NOT force it in as you may damage either the bus or the spindle!

- Make sure the idler wheel is smooth and round! Run your fingers along the inside of the platter to see if there's any residual rubber left behind. If so, you're gonna need a new wheel sometime soon. If not, congrats! Make sure the idler wheel is free from grease, oil dust and dirt and that it runs smooth! Make sure the inside of the platter is also free from dust, dirt, grease or oil to obtain maximum grip or friction.

- Join turntable back together with spindle and give it a soft spin. (Oil warms up inside spindle bus)

Plug in the AC...

Happy spinning at the right speed! :o)

Stanton ST 150 motor will not turn on but all lights on deck flash?


If you have misc LEDs that are flashing without due cause and a motor, I'm betting a Direct Drive motor, that won't spin, I would same you have a damaged microprocessor(computer) within your table that's bad. For more information or further questions, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. Thank you.

What's the correct way to use the strobe light to set turntable speed?


The turntable may have a pattern on the edge of the turntable. If not you need a turntable strobe disk that you place on the turntable like a record. The pattern on the disk or on the edge of the turntable will be marked for 50 Hz or 60 Hz frequency.
The strobe marks on the disk or on the turntable are for 33 RPM and 45 RPM and for both 50 & 60 Hz mains frequency.
To adjust the turntable for the correct RPM, turn on the strobe light and the turntable set it to 33 RPM and shine the strobe light on these marks and adjust the speed setting until the 33 RPM marks appear steady and not moving. You may want to check it for 45 RPM as well.
Make sure you use the correct mains frequency marks ie. the 50 or 60 Hz that your electricity system uses.

Turntable is slow, especially noticable on 33 1/3 rpm


hi,
your turn table is a belt driven one. The speed turns down when the belt become expanded. you should replace the belt of your turn table. Also put some lubricant in its center shaft ( not from the top lubricate it slightly after removing the plater).

I have here added some video related to the replacement of belt for turntables.
Not the exact for your one,for all the belt driven turntable the procedure is the same
ok

Thomas Pacconi turntable turns too slow


My older Thomas Pacconi turntable was also turning too slowly. Rather than replacing the belt or needle, I tried using an eye glass repair screwdriver to alter the trimmers inside the motor. But the changes didn't take. Then I tried trimming the power to the motor using the larger trimpot next to the motor with the motor itself set to the 78 rpm setting. But the adjustments to the trimmer didn't get the platter to spin slow enough - it wouldn't play an LP. To get the speed down further I replaced the 1K trimmer with a 10K trimmer I picked up for a buck at Radio Shack and successfully adjusted the turntable down to down to 33 1/3 rpm usage. All that was needed was a soldering iron and a 10K trimpot to get the job done.

LP audio recording seems to be at the wrong speed


1- The turntable is set to 45 rpm and the album is recorded at 33 rpm. Press the 33 rpm button the red light should come on turn the and be fine.

or

2- This turn table has a fast record mode where you can record a 33 rpm LP faster by spinning it at 45 rpm. If you are trying to use this mode you will have to make a software setting to tell the TTUSB10 digital converter program what mode you want to run.

Hoe do operate the turn table


Lift the arm off the stand and manually move it to the center of the player. You should hear a click and the turntable will begin spinning. To turn it off move the arm to the outside until you hear a click.
