Hi mcmassous
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.

If the turntable has a two-piece platter, Lift off the outer platter and place the belt around the inner platter and motor pulley.

If the turntable has a one-piece platter, lift off the whole patter, place the belt around the inner drum. There will be a hole in the platter's top through which you can reach a finger to stretch the belt so that the belt can be placed around the motor pulley as you put the platter back in place.

My sharp R-953 turn table turns slowly when you put some thing on it ,it stops turning


Replacement of the turntable motor should be carried out by a qualified appliance repair service.

YOUR SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT!

Attempt 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.

Does not move on its own. put in new back and the bag indicator says it is full


The belt that drives the self propelling feature is probably worn. Your model has two belts and they should be replaced yearly to ensure optimum performance. You can get the belts you need here:

The belt on my turn table came lose


01- Remove the rubber cushion.
02- Remove the Turntable Platter
03- Place your drive belt around the ridge inside the platter
(Make sure that it is not twisted)
04-Place your Turntable Platter back on the unit
05-rotate your platter until you can see a brass knob through one of the round holes in the turntable. (Your belt must be placed around the brass knob) The best way is to take a toothpick and carefully slide it under the drive belt and then pull it out enough that you can place it around the knob. I had the same problem and the above works. If you still have problems getting it back on contact me 352-377-1828......

How do I put the belt back on?

Turn Tble will not turn.


open up the top (where the record player is). Take off the pad, then remove the little c-clip surrounding the metal peg (in the center). Remove the turn table. Check underneath to see if the strap/belt is rather broken or has slipped off. If it broke, you have to go buy a new one. If it slipped off, put it back on. Put one end of the belt around the white plastic peg (the one that turns) and then the rest goes around the first outer ring on the bottom of the turn table (the middle one, between the outer edge and the middle insertion area. Its a real pain in the **** to do because it slips off a lot the first couple times...but you will get it eventually :) Once that is done put the table back on, test it, if it works put the c-clip back on (which is a lot harder than taking it off if I do say so myself lol) Put the rubber cover back on and Voila! You have a working turn table. For those with a broken belt use this as a replacement guide :)

Good luck guys and enjoy some good ol' Vinyl cause they are making a comeback!
