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.

Can my turntable be adjusted


Jody, the arm the needle is on, usually adjustable with a dial on the end that can lighten, or put more weight on needle to help it track better on records. Other then that, the belts normally are changed to address slow speed issues. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

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.

I'm no expert, but based on the general idea of operation for a turntable, it sounds like the arm is getting bound up or being hindered in some way. If you pick the arm up and swing it back and forth manually, can you feel a place in the movement that seems to have some degree of resistance? You would want to move the arm very slowly and feel for even the slightest amount of resistance. It doesn't take much force to hold the arm from advancing. An ill positioned wire in the base of the arm could be the culprit or if the unit has an automated return home mechanism, there could be a problem there as well. Maybe working the arm back and forth manually several times to its fullest allowable extension, will help to eliminate the impediment. Do this caringly and without excessive force. I hope this helps.

It seems like you need to adjust the pitch control. Try looking at the platter strobe light and seeing if it is at the correct speed. If not adjust the pitch control until you can see the dots align. As for the not returning, your automatic motor may be busted.
