Only one person I would trust for the absolute answer on anything vintage Thorens. STS Turntables at classicthorens.com . Swiss trained and mentored is by far the best qualified to work on or restore these magnificent machines.

If the motor can physically fit where the replacement motor use to be, then you should be ok. The TD145 and the TD125 share similar power requirements, but I am not sure about the motor size.

SOURCE: Thorens Motor Replacement

All motors generally work the same, and 95% of them have the same power requirements. However, the only issue you might have is in the actual size of the new motor. If you can get it to fit where the old one sat, then your ok. If not, well, then it wont fit.

From what I've seen on the web a motor for your model costs around $400.

Personally I would buy a new turntable.

My Thorens TD150 MK2 Phono Turntable Motor will not run or spin with the belt on but will turn without the belt on.What is wrong.


First replace the 0.33 microfarrad capacitor take a 0.47 with the same or higher voltage of a good quality and lubricate the motor top and bottom spindle bearings
sintered bronze buses with a ceramic high quality lubricant spray tecflow or other brand .
The best is to disassemble the motor only the top bearing is never enough also to control the both bearings.

HELLO
Right, first off I don't know the deck very well in question....this is more advisory. Have a look on the internet at www.theanalogdept.com and you will find many things regarding THORENS decks including links to other websites. Myself, I own a Thorens TD166mk2.
Judging by your posting it SOUNDS like something needs lubricating - not quite sure what though - all depends on where you had it stored. If it was just put into an attic, remember that heat and cold will affect the deck in loft spaces significantly.
If you have any doubts about looking at the deck yourself, then take it to a reputable hifi dealership for servicing.

Where did you find the Thorens manual?
Is it the mkII one or simply for the TD-145?
