Thorens TD-124/II Hi, I recently purchased the above unit and the turntable doesn't turn. Any suggestions on repair or what to check?

    switch unit on to speed..33/1/3 for example, nothing happens, if remove platter, can see motor spindle moving very slightly, put platter back on and leave for 45 mins and the platter is revolving, at the correct speed.
    There is a small circuit board attached to the motor, which is not a papst type, could the capacitor be responsible, for this problem, or could it be the motor itself.

    Many Thanks,

    Rod Henson UK

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.

How to rewire thorens tp16 arm wand


It all depends on the type of tonearm. Are you sure the wires are bad? They're pretty tough. Please take a picture of the tonearm and cartridge connections and visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. Thank you.

Hi, Have a Thorens TD147 turntable, have lost the detachable power cord. It is a special cord, possibly used just in that model. Any suggestions


The TD-147 is the semi auto version of the amazing manual TD-160. There is nothing garden variety about these delicate and precise machines. If you really want the correct information or parts for any vintage Thorens turntable, contact STS Turntables at classicthorens.com. Their tech is mentored and Swiss trained by original Swiss engineers. I trust no one else with my TD-124.

Thorens TD 126 MK II Motor Pulley problem


There's either a lot of grease or something in the motor, or the motor control circuit has a fault on it. Try spraying the motor with Servisol Video 40 first. (available from Maplin UK or Radio Shack USA).
