Question about Crosley CR248 Turntable

1 Answer

Turntable speeds up/slows down constantly

It appears the main turntable wheel is off center as the needle arm is swaying back and forth with the movement of the record. The pitch goes up and down with every revolution. Should i just buy a new turntable or is it fixable?

If your needle just started to skip across the LP, then that means your stylus is damaged/worn and needs to be replaced. It's very hard to see the diamond tip on the stylus, and it might not even be there at all. So checking it might not yield any results. This is what happens when the needle is worn. It will skip across the record.

SOURCE: Optimus lab 1100 Turntable won't turn!

The mechanics in your arm postion is throwing the switch. A mechanical postion switch has sliped out of postion, a arm from the toner arm post has moved to an encorrect postion, or if your turntable has a multi-album play abilty your 'next to play record' post postion sensor switch is out of postion. Last or first is your belt could fool ya. Your belt may have a weak spot on it in turn no friction underload.

You just need a new belt, they're around 20 bucks. Buy them in pairs, or threes.  They stretch out about every seven years.

Even if the belt looks fine it's almost certainly the problem. You mentioned "cleaning" - if you got any kind of fluid on the belt it might act as a lubricant and reduce the friction between the belt and the drive wheel, causing the turntable to slow when the tone arm puts a drag on it. The problem may go away when the belt dries out.

Take the turntable off by removing the "E" clip on the top center of the turntable. You can then oil the motor, lube and check the main turntable bearing and most important, clean, lube and adjust the idler wheel. The rubber tire on the wheel can be cleaned with alcohol or rubber cleaner and this will fix most speed problems. The height of the wheel can be adjusted by changing the fiber washers and of course the wheel bearing should be greased.

Plays records too fast. Is there a way to slow the speed down?


The speed control switch is located next to the tone arm, and here is an image to help assist you, and you can download an operation manual pdf from this site if you would like to have the operation manual for that turntable.

Needle skips


A needle is a precision part. Look to see if the needle has a conical point descending from the cartridge needle carrier. If not, replace the needle.
*Always protect the needle while you adjust things!
Pressure is essential for the needle to track. Turn the weight down until the needle just floats above the record. Zero the weight by turning just the weight indicator, not the weight. Now turn the weight to add 1.2 to 1.5 grams. (Always use the manufacturer's recommended weight if different!)
A level surface is important. Make sure the turntable is level.
Test the arm bearings:
Adjust the weight until the arm floats. With a feather, gently push the arm towards the center. Now gently push it back. The arm should move smoothly with no hesitation and easily. Reset the weight to 1.5 grams or less.
If your cabinet is moving when you walk around, the records will skip. Find a different place for the turntable or don't walk around. In severe cases, raise the weight to 1.75 to 2 grams, but this wears the needle fast an can cause distortion.

Sound wavers (speeds up and slows down)


you need to replace the Pitch controls. I'm presuming it is a sliding pitch control. Use the Red start stop lights that reflect on the rotating wheel. put the pitch in center 0. does one row of the dots on the wheel stay completely still.now just turn it up op down a bit until it starts to move the dots slightly. now watch the dots now while there moving. Do they fluctuate they should be smoothe. do this on both decks to find out which one is fluctuating.

Won't stop turning


There are some gears which move back and forth under the turntable which link to the plated  Sometimes they just get stuck, sometimes just reseting them will resolve the issue. Sometimes you need to lubricate them since they a just getting stiff (only lubricate the center of the gears by the shaft they set on) It is rare that any parts are actually broken PS Protect the needle while attempting to service the unit Rob

1210 internal fuse keeps blowing


First and foremost, the tonearm has absolutely NOTHING to do with the power. They are not connected in anyway. The only thing that links them is the tonearm is grounded to the chassis of the turntable. Nothing else. However, this will not cause this sort of problem.

Turn on your turntable without using the POP-UP light - keep the light down/off. Try it then. If it works, than the issue is there. If you still have the same problem, then the issue is something on the main drive circuit board which is overheating, and the fuse is going to protect the unit from any damage. Take a look at R213 - see if it's burnt around it's area. If so, more than likely this is the culprit.

This is not an easy diagnosis. Highly recommend taking it to a service center.
