Re: philco suitcase turntable / cd belt drive

Place the rubber band around the turntable and put a paper clip, bent up behind the rubber band. Start the turntable on it's spindle and you will be able to view that drive spindle on the right side, slowly pull the rubber band with the paperclip and drop over the drive spindle. remove paperclip and push turntable down seating it and replace the lock snap.

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!

Needle replacement They have about the best selection you can find. If you have the old cartridge, find the number on the cartridge and enter it into their search engine. If it's made, they can get it. Hope this helps

Turntable will not turn

spin the motor between your fingers, sometimes they develope a 'dead spot' if it comes to life let it run for a few hours, this may fix it forever.

Manual and Service Parts location

I found this website in my search for the same problem. I don't think my belt is loose though, it just keeps falling off and I can't get it back on. But here is the site that sells the replacement belts
