Remove the drive belt and see if the turntable spins, if it does the drive motor is faulty, if it doesn't then (if this is a new turntable) it's possibly got a locking device to hold the turn table steady during shipping.

SOURCE: Dual 1228 turntable platter not spinning, the motor will not turn

This particular unit uses an idler wheel to drive the table. Remove the platter and check the rubber wheel. It may be dirty, or just dry and slick. This part may need to be replaced or treated.

It would appear this is a belt drive turntable - here's a link to a site where you can order a replacement, although you may be able to find a cheaper one.

SOURCE: Dual 1228 turntable platter not spinning, the motor will not turn

If the motor is not spinnig then it is probably seized. These motors are very robust and rarely need replacement parts. Remove both the top and bottom bearings, clean shaft and bearings with solvent and then fill bearings with light machine oil. The bearings have a sponge inside which will soak up lots of oil for years of trouble free use. Once reassembled, tap the bottom bearing while the motor is spinnig and the bearings will centre themselves. If the idler and it's mechanism is working ok as well then you should feel lots of torque from the from the platter when it is spinning.

My turntable does not work on a audio component system


Is the motor on the turntable spinning - wiring misconnected?
If motor is running then th epower is not being transmitted to the platter by either a belt drive or a pulley drive.. The belt or pulley has to be replaced to restore the missing friction

BELT-DRIVE MANUAL TURNTABLE


5 years old and not sprinning is for every turntable bad, i'll never buy a technics which has been in a box for 12 years. I think since the lubrication of your cheap motor works fine, but if it never spins a part has run dry. Your belt can be broken, but then that you'll notice . It just can't be a lot , Did you check the output of your powersupply.....
You can check if the cable that runs to your switch is connected and otherwise you buy another motor, though i wouldn't spend a lot on it, since you buy them new for zero money with a better arm and motor.

I just bought a used DP26F and see that under the platter the belt goes around only a spinning thing (sorry) near the front, but nothing else. Something must be connected to whatever it is that spins the...


This picture is from the manual for a DP-29F, a similar belt-drive turntable:

pgh_pa_guy_19.jpg

The view is through the rectangular hole in the platter you see with the turntable mat removed. This picture is from the setup section for a new turntable, so the ribbon tape won't be on your belt. But it shows how the belt should go around the drive roller (it's the shaft of the drive motor underneath). Other than the routing of the belt over the roller, there's nothing else to connect. If the belt is working correctly (hasn't stretched so it's too loose), the roller drives the belt which in turn spins the platter. If your turntable isn't turning, either the belt is too loose to transmit the motion, the drive motor isn't spinning, or something is binding and preventing the platter from turning.

Changing the belt on a Technics SL-3 (Linear tracking) turntable


Instructions on installation of your drive belt - this also applies to other brands as well - however this belt is only for the Technics models listed above:
  1. Remove the turntable platter off from the turntable
  2. Remove the old/damage belt
  3. Wrap the new belt underneath the turntable platter - you will see a small lip on the bottom of the platter. Wrap the belt around this lip.
  4. Put the platter back on the turntable
  5. The turntable platter will have small holes, rotate the platter until you see the motor, and the motor shaft.
  6. Pinch the belt, so that it wraps around the motor shaft
  7. Turn on and enjoy!

I need to put new turntable belt on a Technics SL-B200


The belt goes underneath the turntable platter. First you attach to the lip on the bottom of the turntable platter, then you put the platter on the turntable. You'll see some holes on the platter, after you put it on, just rotate the platter, until you see the motor shaft, then pinch the belt around the motor shaft.

JVC turntable LA10


The trick is to lift up on the platter (tothat metal on metal feel that you had) while simtaneously "lightly" tapping on the top of the shaft with a hammer. Trust me it will work as just changed my belt.
Hope that helps.

JVC turntable--broken motor?


I just worked on a unit with the same problem. The spindle bearing will seize up if it is not oiled at least once a year. Take off the feet and split the top and bottom. Remove the three screws that hold on the spindle. Remove the E clip that holds on the gear. Put it in a vise and press off the gear and remove the shaft. Thoroghly clean off the shaft and the bearing. Lub with 3 in 1 oil and reassemble.

Speed Changes


Perhaps it's time to change the belt on your unit. If after you change the belt, you still have the same issue, then the problem might be with the motor itself. The motor itself is a relatively inexpensive part, around $20-30, and the labor should run in the 40min range - so you can get an idea of what it will cost. Hopefully it's an easy fix. Not sure where you could source the belt, but if you take off the old one, you should be able to match it up easily. Also, there should be a part number in the user manual, and instructions on ordering a replacement belt or at least a part number. FYI, belts generally run in the $5-15 range, and are user replaceable. Good Luck!
