Re: My Thorens speed is off

1 sec is not all that fast.... with that said you can see if there is a control that you stick a small screw driver under the table or you may have to open it but there should be a variable pot to change speed and most likely if you adjust it it's going to be off more than just 1 sec

Have an almost new Thorens 158, speed issues, sometimes slow, or sometimes fast. How does one fix this issue. thanks, Tom

This is a belt drive,electronically speed controlled turn table.I doubt the belt could be at fault but it may have some oil or possibly grease on it which might have happened at the factory.Open the bottom cover and using a small piece of clean cloth dipped in Isopropyl alcohol,wipe the belt mainly on the inside clean very,very gently.Allow the alcohol to dry and try the turntable again.If the problem persists,I would suspect either the motor or perhaps some associated electronic component on the control board being faulty.In that case you will need to take it to a specialist repair facility.

Crosley CR249 warped table

Sounds like you need a new platter. Has the platter worked OK before or has it always been like this?
I suspect you might have to contact Crosley to see who supplies parts.

My Thorens TD150 MK2 Phono Turntable Motor will not run or spin with the belt on but will turn without the belt on.What is wrong.

If you can turn the platter easily by hand, then so should the motor. You can also disconect the power leads to the motor and hook up a PP9 9 volt battery to it. If it\'s slow and easily stopped from rotating then there\'s nothing wrong with the power to the motor and the motor is bad!

I own a Thorens td-160 and after decades of good use the 33 speed is not tracking too fast. Is there anyway to adjust the speed?

A small potentiometer on the circuit board. Be gentle and the proper size jewelers screwdriver.

My thorens TD280mkIV won't spin. I've checked the power supply, 16V is getting to motor. When I hit start switch, motor twitches but doesn't spin. I've oiled motor, but turning spindle still feels...

It seems a bit high 16 volts, most motors run at 12 or lower. Sometimes it says the voltage on it! There's one certain way to check if a dc motor is working. Disconect it an stick a 9 volt battery on it. If it doesn't turn with that it's dead!

CD Mode does not react in the same manner as as Vinyl mode when you try to back spin. At the very least, you will only be able to go back a few bars. It's mainly used to set the Cue properly.

If you want it to back spin, you'll have to use the Vinyl mode.

Platter spins very slowly

Well hope fully its something small. check your pitch control first make sure its not set at a slow speed. then check your start stop knobs at the bottom of the table. roll them one way then start it see if that works, then the other way... if its not that then its possibly its a malfunction ,, Numark with there new awesome products but sometimes faulty that turntable wigs out goin slow then normal then slow ect... If its less then a year send it in it is coverd by warrantee
