You might limp it along for a short while but you need a new belt.

Lift off the platter mat, then lift off the platter from the spindle - gently.
Underneath the platter is a sub-platter around which you place the belt - it should be held there by the stretch of the belt while you turn the platter back up the right way and place it back on the spindle.
Turning the platter by hand, you should see a small pulley come into view through one of the holes in the platter. You then stretch the belt slightly so that it slides over the pulley. Take care not to twist the belt while doing this.

SOURCE: How do I re-thread belt

Hi,

Lift the platter straight up and off the center spindle and looping the belt around the bottom drive wheel of the platter and the motor spindle.

Some Pioneer turntable have multiple motors so the belt has to go round all of them. In essence though, the belt just goes around the spindle or drive wheel sitting on the motor and then around a sub-platter usually sited directly below the main platter. It's unusual for a belt to go around anything else.

I hope this helps.

Good luck.

Motor turns feebly, not enough to make the platter


Sounds like the motor is bad if you say it turns feebly. See if you can turn the drive shaft with your fingers easily. If you find it hard, it's possible that something might have worn out. You could try oil in that case.
