Question about Crosley CR49 Shelf System

1 Answer

Stopped Turning I just acquired a CR49, but took the record off of the turntable before the power was turned off.  Now, when I turn on the CR49, there is no motion at all.  I don't think I would have burned out my motor from something so simple.  Any suggestions to get it moving again?  Thanks

Electro Brand model number 9801: I played one record, now when I tried to play another the turntable will not rotate. Could the motor have burned out that easily?

Listen carefully with your ear to the turntable when you move the tone arm towards the record. If you can hear the motor running and the turntable is still stationary then the drive belt from motor to turntable has probably fallen off of broken. Lift the turntable, there's normally a metal clip holding the turntable in place, and locate the drive belt.

I have the Philco suitcase Turntable CD player. Art No. 841.237. When I got it from my friend, she hadn't given me the ac adapter/power source. When I got it, I assumed she had given me the right one. I...

I don't know whether your philco is the same as my crosley, but I recently had an issue where the record player stopped turning and it bamboozled me to no end. After digging up the manual online, I found out that you had to lift up the tone arm and move it to the right (past the holding clip) until it clicked, and voila, the record player started spinning again.

I hope this helps!

Turntable will not rotate when in "Phono" mode

I recently was given my Father's CR78CD and, assuming your unit is in working order, you turn on the turntable motor by lifting the tonearm off the post and moving it away from the turntable about one and a half to two inches. You should hear a soft click as the switch for the motor activates.

How do you get the turntable to start turning? We just got a Philco turntable and can't find a switch to get the turntable to turn. We got it used so don't have the instruction manual.

A lot of turntables start moving when the arm is moved to the record start. The turntable should move when you move the arm to the edge of the platter, even with no record. If it doesn't, listen to see if the motor spins. Then lift up the platter matt to see if the belt has slipped off.

Turntable will not turn, power goes on. Does this system have a belt for the turntable or is there a manuel or schematics to this system?

You will need to check your belt for wear. Lift felt on platter and check belt tension. It may need replacing. To replace, simply lift platter section of the unit, taking note of the belt position. replace and your problem will be solved

B & O Beocenter 4600: The record player won't spin

the turntable wont spin unless a record is on the platter,the centre 45 adapter weighs the record to determine 33/45.try pressing 33 and turning the platter by hand(remove expensive cartridge first!),if it starts to spin the motor leaf switch is at the belt in position.the motor pulley can become unglued.

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..

Most likely the grease in the whole system has started to stiffen or the motor is failing. This can be fixed. Try oiling the motor first. If that fails, I'd look at the motor driver IC as the most likely failing part.

AC adaptor cord

Try a Radio Shack universal replacement power supply like 273-1773 or 273-1776 or 273-1667 with the proper "Adaptaplug" that goes with it. It should do nicely and be sure to observer the proper polarity of the plug so that it will match your unit. Good luck.
