Turntable. The turntable on my player will not turn. Opened it up and found the belt was cracked and not getting enough friction. Ok, problem found, but, where do I find a new belt?

Measure the total length of the belt, and I presume it is square. approximate the thickness and contact, they have about 450 belt sizes in stock.

Is this a cd player or a turntable recordplayer ???

cd player that drags usually mean theres a misalignment in the tray that holds cd

turntables that drag unless they are direct drive usually need there rubber drive tires replaced or a belt what ever it has

May be a broken belt. See if the turntable lifts out. There may be a circlip that holds it in or turn the player upside down taking care with the arm not to damage it. If the base comes off you may be able to see the belt. They are usually only the size of a skinny elastic band. If your turntable is a direct drive ( No belt) the motor may have failed.

CD Changer won't finish loading a CD

I had the same problem and found the cure for it. The drive belt was streched and when it started to close on the disc, the belt would slip and eventually show loading error..The two belts cost $4.50 at belts plus. Hope this helps you

The door to the turntable will not open and the turntable just keeps trying to change. Had to unplug it to make it stop.

There is a problem with the rubber belt that drives the door of the turn table. Open the cd player and replace the rubber belt.

I have a Rowe R-89 jukebox. Even though the motor is turning on the turntable, the turntable is not moving. Should there be a washer on the turntable base to elevat it so it will turn?

Hello Robert,

You say you have a R-89 jukebox and the turntable motor is running, I assume that the pulley on the top of the motor is clearly seen turning. Is the turntable belt loose or missing?
From your message I am not sure that your jukebox is a R-89, could it be a 1978/1979 R-82 or R-83 that uses an idler wheel.
On this model the turntable motor is 110 volts AC.
If the above is true check that the idler wheel and the linkage spring is pulling the idler wheel against the turntable and the motor shaft.

The turntable is not revolving at the correct speed slowing the record down

Sounds to me like your belt is streched. 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

Belt came off on my crosley cr49 record player

1) Remove the platter - just lift up
2) Underneath the platter, you'll see a small lip section
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.

Bad drive belts.
Motor needs servicing (most likely).

Turntable is wacky

try loading half your discs on one side of the turntable and the other half on the other side and see if that solves it.
