Question about Crosley Traveler Turntable

Turntable spins too slow!

I just bought a CR89 Traveler second hand and it spins too slow, I suspect it is the belt, I wanted tp know if that is the case, or if it could be something else. If it is the belt, I wanted to know how to get into it to check it. Thanks.

    Mine doesn't always spin too slow...the speed varies. It wasn't too bad at first. Actually, the varying speed wasn't even noticeable. The only noticeable problem was a clicking noise. A very regular clicking noise, as if it clicked once every rotation. Recently I have noticed it is accompanied by a change in speed as well. It's a very annoying little problem. The platter won't lift up.

There should be a connector on the spindle holding down the platter
remove it and the platter should just lift off exposing the belt

First of all check if the motor is hot or there is friction on the drive. Since you had noticed some smell then the best option is to trace the smell which must confirm the case. It could be the motor or possible capacitor or within the power supply or drive output.

Our Stack-O-Matic Traveler won't play at the right speed. Is this a problem with the motor? Our friend said it might be the tuner...whatever that is. Any advice would be appreciated!

I think what your friend may be referring to is the potentiometer that you adjust the speed of your turn table may be starting to malfunction. I would start with finding that part number and installing a new one. This very well may fix it. The motor can only spin at the speed it is told too. This does not mean it is not the motor per say. But if that potentiometer is not working right it can be sending the wrong signal to the motor. Good luck.

Turntable will not spin

Sound to me like the belt has snapped on your turntable. To replace, lift the platter oof the table and check the inside of the platter. You will notice a second ring, or rim. the belt should be put on the outside of the second rim while the platter is still in your hands. Next, slide back the platter and look for the spindle running the platter through one of the big holes in the platter. Slip the belt onto the spindle and turn with your hand to make sure it runs freely. Hope this helpsmicmor100.jpg

The turntable is not revolving at the correct speed slowing the record down

Sounds to me like your belt is streched. Under the felt of the turning section, there should be two rather large holes. Insert your thumb and forefinger and pull the table off. You should also see where the existing belt is running. Insert new belt around the motor first and replace the table section. Now, through the two holes, manouver the belt onto the table section until it spins freely

Platter/motor won't turn

I don't know the answer, but you have written one of the finest, most comprehensive problem descriptions I have come across. In mechanical scenarios, that is priceless. I'm sure a turntable guru will see it and go, "aw. I know what that is". Good Luck.

Technics 1210 MK2 - unstable/uneven speed problem

Since this is a direct-drive turntable, it isn't a slipping or stretched belt. You will need a technician with a couple pieces of equipment and some experience/training to find the source of the problem. I suspect the part(s) will be the minor cost of the repair.
