Question about Audio Players & Recorders
Only one place on earth I would ever trust to repair/restore/customize a Thorens TD-124 through TD-166, STS Turntables. Visit their site at classicthorens.com. Their technician was trained and mentored by original Swiss engineers at Thorens. There are certain proceedures and techniques known only to very few. STS specializes in the TD-124, however is highly adept at SME and Ortofon Tonearms as well as most cartridges. STS is the best.

Check the fuse in the plug and make sure power is available at motor end of mains lead.
Also, remove belt and see if motor turns (If the 6 rubber motor mounting grommets are failing, it may help to gently push motor up from below). If not, its prob the motor and these can be found on e-bay.

Well, with a turntable that old, if it hasn't been restored it likely needs to be. Could be the power cord, the motor or the clutch.
