Question about Crosley Traveler Turntable

1 Answer

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

My Philco 841205 Turntable spins normally, but


If this is a belt driven turntable then when the arm rests on the record the weight cause the belt to loose traction and slip around. The only cure is a new belt. Make a note of how the belt fits before removing as the biggest problem with belt turntables is knowing how the belt fits. When removed. Measure the diameter of the belt in MM and then the thickness. You won't need to be spot on with the diameter. Put the measurments into Google with the words turntable belt. Get the one that is nearest your measurements.

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

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.
