Fisher turntable model 230-XA won't turn on because the slide won't move off the "Off" position. I just obtained the turntable, so know nothing about the operation of it. Any clues?

SOURCE: coin operated machines: slide mechanism is not moving back.

I had a coin washer and dryer.The slider has little fingers(metal)that slide over the coins.If the coin isn't placed and the slider is pushed hard will jam. Mine had a side cover with a lock. Open that and there is a long rod that has to be unscrewed to remove the lock box,then you should is what went wrong.Hope this helps>

SOURCE: fisher turntable mc-715 has power but table won't

What's likely is that the belt that drives the turntable has snapped. The MC-715 is a mid-late 80's model, so the rubber the belt is made of has had it. A google search for mc-715 belt will turn up a source for a new belt, which you can install fairly easily. There should (though it may be missing) be a hub in center of the platter that you turn to allow playback of 45's. This is removable, simply fit a flathead screwdriver into the side where the raised lines are and pry it away. If it's already missing, then don't worry about it.

You should now see the spindle (silver metal axle/pole that the platter revolves around). At the base of the spindle there will be a black metal circlip. This holds the platter down, and it will have to be removed. Use the flathead screwdriver again to pry it off. You should be able to do this by putting the tip of the screwdriver into one of the two openings on the circlip and using a twisting/prying motion. Once this is off, simply lift the platter off. Remove what's left of the old belt. Even if the old belt is still in one piece, chances are it's too stretched out to be of any use anymore. You will see a track for the belt on the underside of the platter. Put the new belt around this. It will be too loose be a little, but this is to allow for it to stretch and reach the motor spindle (the brass colored spindle off to the right on the now-exposed inner workings.

Along the rim of the underside of the platter you'll see a little plastic peg. Hook the belt onto this. Now, put the platter back on the silver spindle in such a way that the triangular hole where the belt is pulled away from its track by the bit you hooked onto that peg goes over the brass spindle. Once it's down and secure (you may have to wiggle it a little in order for the little gear on the underside to line up correctly) you should turn the platter clockwise. In theory, this should cause the brass spindle to pull the belt off the little peg and onto itself, thus connecting the belt with the drive motor. At this point, move the needle off its stand to see if the belt connected. If not, just repeat the belt-peg-spindle part. It may take a few tries, but it will work sooner or later. After it's turning properly, just replace the circlip that holds the platter down (you'll probably want a pair of pliars to push it on, it's a stiff little thing), and replace the plastic 45 adapter.

Good luck!

SOURCE: Braun shaver 7505 trimming blade slide will only

The trimmer and on/off switch are part of the same mechanism. The problem is that the switch apparatus is broken and preventing the trimmer from sliding up. You can't repair it without replacing it.
This is a hard part to find for your model and I don't know where to direct you to purchase one.
I have another suggestion which will be a good remedy especially if your shaver has original batteries and is over 3 or 4 years old. This suggestion is to replace the whole 'lower unit'. This would be the entire handle portion of the shaver. You can upgrade to a nicer model at the same time. Take a look at this compatible lower unit at See link below.

Turntable won't stop spining

If it is a turnatable that starts spining when the arm is moved to the record, then more than likely the start/stop switch inside the turnable is broken and is fixed in the on position. Or the leaver mechanism has become detached from the arm when the record was playing and left the other part pressing on the same switch that turns the motor on or off.
Removing the bottom of the turntable should should show the trouble.

I own a SL1200 MKII and when the light "turn on" in the pitch control slider (green LED) the speed is not correct (big dots on platter move slightly) .Could you please give me some tips to solve...

Use the slide on the pitch control to move forward or backward until the dots stay steady. If it is a little old the quartz control won't work as well.

Sharp microwave (R-959m) turntable not moving

Sounds like a new turntable motor is required.

Replacing the turntable motor.

The motor assembly is fixed to the base of the oven usually with two screws and access i obtained by removing the inspection plate directly beneath the motor. It is usally a plug in synchronus motor that revolves at a few revs per minute but the plastic cogs in the motors gear box fail and the motor assembly must be replaced. They are fairly inexpensive and obtainable usually from a domestic appliance repair shop.
If you feel confident, disconnect it from the mains power, remove anything in the cavity and turn it upside down if it is a tabletop model, a little more complicated if it is built in!
Remove the inspection plate and disconnect the motor. Remove the motor and go and get a new one. Re fit it and put the microwave back in its position. Plug it back in, with the turntable and plate. Put a cup of water on the plate inside of the oven and heat for 20 seconds to check the plate goes round.
Hope this helps.

I bought a very nice toshiba record player arm won't move

I am not familiar with that particular model, but the hum is probably the motor. I would check to see if the belt has slipped off or even exists. I'll look it up tonight and update this if I find out more.
