Brand new Denon DP 300F turns extremely slowly.

The turntable should be under warranty still so contact the makers and they should sort it out. Any tampering with it could void any warranty so don't let any unathoriesed person touch it.

Detrola record player wont spin, even after moving arm to far right.

I suggest you lift up the turntable matt and see if you can see a belt, which has either broke or come off. You might need a new belt!

It's doesnt scratch?

It doesnt scratch well you have to set your turntable up for scratching meaning adding more weight on the needle taping a penny to it the weight of the tone arm take it off and put it on backwards i also suggest wax paper and trace around you slipmat put the wax paper outline down then then slip mat . but you main problem is theres not enough weight keeping the needle on the record. or you scratching is completely wrong. i sugguest taking the weight on the tone arm and flip it around and ull have plenty of weight also , youtube man thousands of videos on how to scratch properly. best of luck if u are still stuck feel free to email me im guessing your new to djing

One of of my technic 1210's keeps picking up dust and the sound quality is poor regardless of the needle. It has ruined 2 needles now and and im not sure the problem is. The weights are not too heavy so it...

Are u sure it's not the needle? What brand needles are you using and I usually recommend people have small fans by turntables to have airflow so dust doesnt become a problem, expecially for DJ's

Turntable wheel under glass tray broken

If the microwave comes with a roller ring to rotate the glass turntable then I would recommend that it needs to be used when the microwave is operating, as the turntable rotates the food so it can be heated evenly.

I would recommend checking with your local Panasonic repairer he may have access to a new roller or even a second hand one to tide you over.

GE turntable microwave Je1540WW 002 Turntable doesn't turn

I have had the turn table motor go defective in microwave ovens.

Normaly, before ordering a new motor, I always checked to make sure that there was power going to the motor assembly. I never had a power drive failure to a motor so-far. When they did not spin, the motor was defective. But, one day there will be a first time for me.

The fix was to purchase a new motor from the manufacture and install it. In some cases, I had to also replace the spindle key because the original broke when trying to remove it when removing the motor assembly.

I suggest that for servicing a microwave oven, you give it out to a service center to have the work done. There are safety issues when working on microwave ovens.

Does not turn??

sounds like your belt came off, if problem persists you will need a new one.
above is a generic video that applies to almost all belt driven turntables including yours that will show how to install the belt and a few other things.

Turntable will not turn

This is a fully manual turntable, meaning, the tonearm will not engage a switch that powers up the unit. You have to turn it on. The power switch is towards the rear of the unit, on the top, right at the rear of the tonearm. You'll see a button. Press that button, and your unit should power up.

If it does not power up, then you have a faulty unit. If you bought this new, I would suggest returning it. If it is not new, then either you have a bad fuse, or burned out transformer. The fuse you can replace yourself, but the transformer requires a technician.

Hope this helps.
