I take it that it doesn't turn? OK two choices for you. Faulty motor, or a on/off switch that doesn't work. If you have to move the arm to start the turntable then some kind of leaver switch is either bent or broken.
I should imagine this model uses no more than a 12 volt motor. If you have no look with the switch, find the motor and take it out. Then stick a 9 volt battery on it, or lower voltage if it's only 6 volt motor. If it don't go it's bust!

    I have model 841.230 Philco Retro CD and Record Player with AM/FM Radio and I need to move the arm to start the turntable. Recently it stopped cueing the table to turn. Where/what should I look for to see if the lever switch is broken or bent?

    You need to remove the underside of the turntable or get to it somehow. This should show you the works. When you move the arm towards the turntable you should see the connecting rods push on a switch.

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.

How do you get the turntable to start turning? We just got a Philco turntable and can't find a switch to get the turntable to turn. We got it used so don't have the instruction manual.


A lot of turntables start moving when the arm is moved to the record start. The turntable should move when you move the arm to the edge of the platter, even with no record. If it doesn't, listen to see if the motor spins. Then lift up the platter matt to see if the belt has slipped off.

Streched CD drive belt


turntableneedles.com has about 450 belt sizes in stock. your unit is too new to have this listing yet as the belt should not have failed already so when you call be ready with the length of the old belt. Don't worry that it is stretched, a new size will be calculated that is about 3-5% shorter.
