Hi, remove the disc in the centre of the platter. Under there you will find a cir clip that holds the platter in place. It may need a light tap on the spindle with a rubber hammer of piece of wood. styluscity@gmail.com

On my record player, the platter is wobbling as it spins and is off balance. what can be done to fix this


Remove the felt on the platter and lift the turning platter of the centre guide pin. Please note where the belt is running, because you will have to place that into the same possition as before. Check for any dirt or debries. Clean out and replace table and belt. Hope this helps

I have a Crosley CR248 cd record player/recorder stopped working


If nothing lights up and the whole unit is dead, you may have a blown fuse, a bad power supply, or an electrical outlet that is not giving you power. (Don't laugh, it has happened to all of us... the "broken" thing wasn't plugged in or the outlet it was plugged into was off for some reason). Anyway, if the thing lights up and everything else in the system works except the turntable going 'round, perhaps there is a slipped or broken belt. Most late-model Crosley turntables have been belt drive, so the first thing to look at if everything else works is to press the buttons to start the record playing and then turn the record gently around with your finger on the label, making the whole platter turn clockwise when looking down at the record. Mechanically, the tonearm should cue up and pivot in to the record and it should gently drop onto the record. If you cue the tonearm up and move it in to the end of the last song on the LP and let it back down and turn the record again, it should follow the record's grooves into the center of the record and then lift and "park" the tonearm after everything is done. During the time the needle is on the record and you are turning the record, you should hear the record playing (it will sound bad, because you won't be turning at the right speed!), but that should indicate that the turntable is working mechanically and electrically.
If everything works like I mentioned except the record player won't make the record turn, the next step is to see why it isn't turning. you'll need to lift the plastic platter off the turntable. Most of these have a snap ring (usually a simple spring wire ring that doesn't go all the way around the center spindle. It may have an E-ring instead. Use a small screwdriver to pop this off and be sure to catch it, it might try to pop off the turntable and fly across the room! Lift the platter and you'll probably find a broken belt underneath. You'll have to replace that to make the records spin again. The hardest part is to locate a replacement belt! If nobody near you stocks belts (lol) then online outfits like LPGear.com can be a source. After you replace the belt and put the platter back on the player, remember to replace the snap ring. You might want to lubricate the platter's bearing with an appropriate lubricant, but that is your call as to whether that will be necessary. This is likely a styrene or simple thermoplastic plastic bearing, so be real careful what you use for a lubricant! if you're not sure, don't use anything! Like I said, it's not a difficult repair, it's just hard to find the part these days! Good Luck!

How do I remove the turntable platter on a Ferguson 3047?


Try looking at the spindle where the record hole goes. You might have to lift the mat somehow. There might a C Ring holding it.

3) Wrap the belt around this lip
4) Put platter back on turntable
5) Rotate platter until you see the motor shaft through the holes on the platter - a brass round looking piece
6) Pinch the belt around the motor shaft.
7) That's it.

The rubber band under the record player has come off


I am not familiar with your particular model of turntable, but typically the belt is easily accessible under the platter (rotating metal disc). Remove the platter (it often just lifts off, but don't force anything) and then you will be free to reattach the belt. Good luck!

Won't start


I had the same problem with the arm constantly starting and stopping, and the suggestion above works. Despite, I was a little confused on how to do it. Here's what I did in detail:

- Remove the turntable mat.
- Unhook the belt and remove the turntable platter.
- Once the platter's removed, you should see two plastic white gears in the middle. Rotate the center gear clockwise until its tab hits the larger gear. The center gear should move freely and without resistance until you hit that gear.
- Put the platter back, making sure to re-hook the belt around the spindle.
- Put the mat back.

After that, you should be set!
