Question about Audio Players & Recorders
Refitting the belt is easy.
1.) Remove rubber pad/mat.
2.) Remove platter just beneath mat. Some platters are "press fit" onto the center shaft and seemingly can't be removed, the trick is to lift up on the platter while simultaneously lightly tapping on the top of the shaft with the handle of a screwdriver. While others may have a "E" clip at the base of the center shaft which must be removed with the a screwdriver, with care that it doesn't fly away before the platter can be removed.
3.) Use rubbing Alcohol soaked cloth to clean outside of large 'lip' or ledge underneath platter and the (usually) brass pulley shaft on platter drive motor which should now be visible.
4.) Install belt around the ledge underneath platter. Belt should be somewhat snug without falling off.
If the belt just falls of the rim of the platter, then it is failing and needs to ne replaced.
5.) Optional: Clean then Lube main center platter shaft of turntable with 3-in-1 oil or similar.
6.) Re-install platter.
7.) look thru 'access window' in platter and rotate platter until platter motor becomes visible.
8.) Stretch belt from platter ledge over to far side of motor pulley.
9.) Re-install mat and start player.

Replacement of the
turntable motor should be carried out by a qualified appliance repair
SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT!
this only if you are competent.
But here is a basic method if you are
mechanically minded and have electrical safety knowledge.
The motor assembly is fixed to the base
of the oven usually with two screws and access is obtained usually by
removing the inspection plate directly beneath the motor. It is
usually a plug in synchronous 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, sometimes it must be cut out with sharp cutters, and disconnect the motor. Remove the motor and go and get a new one. Fit the new motor and fit the inspection cover back on the base by turning it to fit and using an extra screw fix it then 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.
