The most common sizeis 23.6 inches, but the size is dependent upon the make and model. Can you post this info please so I can confirm the correct size?

Thorens TD190 speed problem

Depends if it is a belt drive or direct drive turntable. Most problems like this on a belt are caused by the belt itself, which will be found by lifting the platter matt up. If you need to replace the belt make a note of how it fits before removing it. You can find the belt by searching first for the make/model number and the word "belt". If that doesn't find it, measure in MM the diameter of the belt. You might also need to measure the thickness. Put that into Google with the words "turntable belt". You don't have to spot on with the measurements. Just get the nearest to yours.
If it's a Direct Drive, then that will be an electrical fault, so it might need the attention of a trained engineer.

There's lot of sellers on E-Bay selling new belts have you tried there?
Also Curry's Partmaster website.

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.

Streched CD drive belt 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.

What size belt do I need?

There are zillions of belts out there. I hope you still have the broken one which will give you the profile of a new belt. Measure the diameter of the sub-platter under the platter. The belt you need well be a slight stretch fit. Then, with the platter back in place, slip the belt over the motor pulley making sure it is not twisted.

Technics SL-J1 turntable drive belt

Hello Cliff,
You will need 2 belts, if the turntable belt is gone the other is not far behind . One for the turntable size 23.6 inch by .188 and one for the tracking motor that is in the top cover part, is a 3.0 inch by .046 belt. best place to get them is at part numbers 1407-201 and AV-SBS3.0 if you have been checking around you will see other sizes, I have a SL-J1 and have used these and they work perfectly.
