The problem is probably the belt. When a belt gets old it tends to stretch and/or get stiff. Listen to see if you hear the motor turning. If it comes on when you lift the arm, it is not the switch.

Crosley turn table is not spinning. Tried replacing belt and moving cue lever to right then left. Think it might be the arm or cue lever. Does anyone have an idea what the problem is or a solution?


Since it is new, you should probably return for refund or exchange.
My guess would be it is the micro switch controlled by the arm.
Make sure the power is turned on and the unit's function selection is set on PHONO and then gently move the tone arm to the right until you hear a "click". Remove any cassettes that might be in the cassette player. Lift the tone arm and carry it over to the beginning of the record.

Turn table doesn't start when tone arm is lifted


Did it used to start when you lifted the tonearm?

Many turntables start when the arm is moved over the record.

The tonearm on my crosley turntable doesnt automatically lift up at the end of the record, what do i do?


At the pivot point on the arm there is an indexing adjustment screw. With the unit running and a record on the table, put the are into the lift area on the record and turn the indexing screw until the arm lifts itself.

Tone arm keeps returning to rest on Crosley CR249


Hi, Try this. with it turned off. Lift tone arm across a record to the run out groove and set it down. Now power up and hopefully it will reset itself. In all honesty I would sell it and get a decent old school player. John. Styluscity.com

Tonearm lifter in UP position - how to fix


I have also had this problem with the same model turntable. I opened mine up and the problem seems to have been that the grease on the arm lift and cueing lever was gumming up the linkage between the two. (I suspect that my turntable hadn't been used in some time.) I managed to free up the parts by manually working the the arm lift (pressing it down) several times. I'm not sure that I needed to open up the chasis for this fix but it did help me to see what was going on. Good luck with yours.

Won't start


I had the same problem with the arm constantly starting and stopping, and the suggestion above works. Despite, I was a little confused on how to do it. Here's what I did in detail:

- Remove the turntable mat.
- Unhook the belt and remove the turntable platter.
- Once the platter's removed, you should see two plastic white gears in the middle. Rotate the center gear clockwise until its tab hits the larger gear. The center gear should move freely and without resistance until you hit that gear.
- Put the platter back, making sure to re-hook the belt around the spindle.
- Put the mat back.

After that, you should be set!

HI...
One or two mechanical linkages inside have "let go"
Denon is good stuff. Depending on where you live I might be able to suggest someone to fix it.
