HELLO

Check that your new belt is not too tight as this will slow the motor down as it tries to turn the platter. I would also suggest a little light oil (sewing machine oil is ideal - NOT WD40) on the motor spindle shaft where it goes through the motor itself it may be a little dry.

Clean off any gunk from the rim where the belt turns the platter and do the same on the pulley on the motor. Get some de-oxit (expensive but good) or SERVISOL to clean the speed change switch too.

ALL THE BEST!

New belt of Turntable and speed still wrong?


Hi,
Try to put one or two drops of oil in the shaft of the motor. be sure when you put the oil it should not spread on the pull where you put the belt. You will be able to see the shaft of the motor beneath the belt pulley. And also put one or two drops of oil in the center shaft one which the plater rotates. Probably this will rectify the problem of your turntable.

I just recently bought a new turntable, and when it plays my LPs, the LPs sound somewhat slower than the original. Does the slowness have to do with the belt of the turntable? Is there anyway I can fi


If the 45's play OK then your belt might not be fitted in the right place. If they are both slow, then either the belt is slack or the drive is faulty.

I have not used it in a long time seems like the speed is wrong when i put it on 33/1/3 plays slow when i put on 45 it much better playing the 33


Good day. It sounds to me like the belt is worn. 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

How do I change the belt on a rotel RP830 turntable. I can't see how to remove the turntable to install the new belt


There's a free downloadable manual at retrevo.com after you register.

It shows how to do it, sort of. I imagine the platter should just lift off which should expose the pulley and the driven part of the turntable. Make special note of which groove (top one) you route the new belt on for 33-1/3 rpm.

They don't mention it but you need to avoid touching the belt surface with your bare hands. Use cotton gloves.

Most likely the grease in the whole system has started to stiffen or the motor is failing. This can be fixed. Try oiling the motor first. If that fails, I'd look at the motor driver IC as the most likely failing part.
