Re: Turntable drive belt replacement

1) Remove the platter - just lift up
2) Underneath the platter, you'll see a small lip section
3) Wrap the belt around this lip
4) Put platter back on turntable
5) Rotate platter until you see the motor shaft through the holes on the platter - a brass round looking piece
6) Pinch the belt around the motor shaft.
7) That's it.

How do I know if I need to replace the turntable belt?

Belts are like big rubber bands. If they wear out and begin to stretch with age, there is no longer enough tension to move the turntable. They may also start and then quit once it warms up and the belt gets warm and expands. See how loose it is once it has been running.

Turntable drive belt for model ITTRR-501

It is very difficult to hunt down a turntable belt, take the belt to a TV service shop, he should have a belt gauge to measure the belt in hopes he has that size in stock.

The turntable belt wasn't atached and i need th know how to put it back on.

Good day. Lift the rubber mat off the platter and notice the two rather large holes in the plater. Put your thumb and forefinger through the holes and pull the platter off the turntable unit. Place the platter upside down and notice the inner rim which holds the belt. Place the new belt around the inner rim and replace the platter onto the unit. Now, with tweesers, working through one of the large holes, pull the belt onto the spindle motor. Once on, spin the platter by hand and make sure the belt does not slip off. Hope this helps

Turntable not turning to play record............. power on............ please help my email address -

This could be many things like the following>

If its a direct drive turntable the motor could be "blown",
or motor electonic speed controller burnt out.
If its a belt drive turntable then the belt could be broken
or stretched and is slipping, or the belt can have dropped of a drive pullety.
Also there are speed control mechanisms to adjust the final speed of the
turntable to the recorded speed of the record like 331/3rpm, 45rpm 75rpm
These speed reducing mechanisims can slip and cause the turntable not to turn..
There are also other mechanical bits that slide and push against each other,
and these can get sticky and the friction increases so much that the power
from the motor drive causes the belts to slip, so you need to identify if a
friction problem exists as well..

If you are carefull you can look your self and find out which one of the above it is.

Be warned there are lethal voltages inside the turntable which can kill you....
so please dont have the power on when making any inspection or adjustments.

Cheers From YUBEUT..

clean the spindle with alcohol and put a single drop of thin oil at the bottom of it
the sticky stuff is the rubber corroding
if the belt is not too stretched , boil it in water with some vinegar for a couple of minutes , if its too bad then replace it

How to replace belt in jvc turntable

I just got a JVC turntable from a thrift shop today and as soon as I got it home the belt broke. I had a replacement but couldn't figure out how to install it. After taking off the back, which is about 4 screws plus the 4 feet and the grounding screw, I saw a very tiny set screw on the post where the spindle obviously is. I removed this and the table came right off so I could replace the belt. I couldn't get the tiny set screw back but figured I didn't need it and if I ever have to replace another belt, I won't have to take the back off anyway. I hope this helps.
