SOURCE: Replacing a belt on the Kenwood KX 1030 Tape Deck

Hi Jeff

You do have to take the front fascia off the unit to get access to the mechanism mounting screws, to then get the mecha into a position that you can remove the capstan flywheel plate etc to replace the belts and clean drive surfaces. You can get an entire replacement belt kit from here

These decks are well worth repair if you have an interest in cassette decks. Good luck, and thanks for using FixYa. If you need more advice , feel free to ask me :)

regards
Graeme

Kenwood kx-w6050 dual cassette deck. play, rewind n forward got problems? Whats seem the problem to be?


It needs servicing by a Technician- often times say it only needs belt but you can replace belts and still have the same problem. The dried lub has to be removed and new fresh non- degrading grease needs to go in and then it will work. Dual cassette decks are usually not worth the $200 it will take to work on two mechanisms. You might find a $10/Hr technician but I doubt it.

KX-710 belts


There are no instruction manuals on how to get to belts- it is an experience thing that comes from working on the bench as you repair these decks. In 42 years I have never seen a step by step instruction on how to replace belts.

Looking for schematic for Kenwood KX-55 stereo cassette tape deck


These dual cassette deck are rarely worth he effort to put repair time into. I checked Hi Fi Engine and they did not have anything. Is it worth a $100 repair bill? if not then look for a good solid single deck.

I have a kx-w4050 dual kenwood tape deck niether side will play hear click and counter moves one then another click. Is there a way to fix this?


Yes, the belts need to be check and idlers or whatever drive mechanism that is used in that system. Dual deck units are among the most unreliable units there are and a reason I tell people for the last 30 years not to buy those things. Almost most of the time they are not worth fixing due to their poor performance at the end. These are facts not just opinion.

On Kenwood CT 2050, tape speed varies near end of reel and stops prior to end of reel


Many cassette units have trouble handling 120 min tapes. You seem to have taken care of some of the problem areas but in my experience I would suspect the belts have stretched or aged. If this an older deck, the motor may be weakening. It can be the source of the problems you describe

I have a Kenwood KX W 4070 double cassette deck. The left hand cassette player doesn't work (I can only play cassettes on the right side recording one.)


The flywheel belt would have broken or gone slack and fallen off the motor pulley. You can confirm this by opening the top and looking inside. If you can shake the machine holding it upside down the belt might even fall off.Replacing the belt is a tricky job. Its like putting back a bicycle chain except there is a metal plate behind the flywheel and your hand won't go there.
