Turntable During a recent move, the drive belt from my turntable became totally detached. I cannot figure out how to correctly re-install it. I have successfully removed the turntable and exposed the interior, but don't clearly know where to "string" the belt.

Electro Brand model number 9801: I played one record, now when I tried to play another the turntable will not rotate. Could the motor have burned out that easily?


Listen carefully with your ear to the turntable when you move the tone arm towards the record. If you can hear the motor running and the turntable is still stationary then the drive belt from motor to turntable has probably fallen off of broken. Lift the turntable, there's normally a metal clip holding the turntable in place, and locate the drive belt.

How do I know if I need to replace the turntable belt?


Belts are like big rubber bands. If they wear out and begin to stretch with age, there is no longer enough tension to move the turntable. They may also start and then quit once it warms up and the belt gets warm and expands. See how loose it is once it has been running.

Turntable drive belt for model ITTRR-501


It is very difficult to hunt down a turntable belt, take the belt to a TV service shop, he should have a belt gauge to measure the belt in hopes he has that size in stock.

I have the Philco suitcase Turntable CD player. Art No. 841.237. When I got it from my friend, she hadn't given me the ac adapter/power source. When I got it, I assumed she had given me the right one. I...


I don't know whether your philco is the same as my crosley, but I recently had an issue where the record player stopped turning and it bamboozled me to no end. After digging up the manual online, I found out that you had to lift up the tone arm and move it to the right (past the holding clip) until it clicked, and voila, the record player started spinning again.

I hope this helps!

Turntable will not rotate when in "Phono" mode


I recently was given my Father's CR78CD and, assuming your unit is in working order, you turn on the turntable motor by lifting the tonearm off the post and moving it away from the turntable about one and a half to two inches. You should hear a soft click as the switch for the motor activates.

Turntable spinning too fast


The turntable speed is controlled by a belt, which is virtually a big rubber band. If it spinning too fast , then this means the belt is too tight. The only way this can happen is for the unit to be fitted with an incorrect size belt. You didn't say if you have a new unit, or a second-hand one, or if it has recently had the belt replaced. If it is a new unit and still under warranty, take it back to the retailer and ask them to fix it for you. Again, if you have recently had the belt replaced, take it back and ask them to do the job again, and this time to please use the correct belt. Be polite but firm....If you are a handyman, the job is not too hard to do yourself, and if you need any extra help, just ask, johnatwagga@yahoo.com. To buy the correct belt, you will need the name, model number, and preferably, the serial number. All of these can be found on the back of the unit. Good luck, and I hope this helps.

clean the spindle with alcohol and put a single drop of thin oil at the bottom of it
the sticky stuff is the rubber corroding
if the belt is not too stretched , boil it in water with some vinegar for a couple of minutes , if its too bad then replace it

How to replace belt in jvc turntable


I just got a JVC turntable from a thrift shop today and as soon as I got it home the belt broke. I had a replacement but couldn't figure out how to install it. After taking off the back, which is about 4 screws plus the 4 feet and the grounding screw, I saw a very tiny set screw on the post where the spindle obviously is. I removed this and the table came right off so I could replace the belt. I couldn't get the tiny set screw back but figured I didn't need it and if I ever have to replace another belt, I won't have to take the back off anyway. I hope this helps.
