I have a older model record player/8-track/cassette/radio stereo. It have been in an attick in the box for many years. The record player does not turn - it is very stiff. I can manually turn it with my...


A combination of heat and dirt is "public enemy #1" for electronic devices. Most people's attics are loaded with both.

A thorough cleaning followed by careful lubrication may bring the record player or "turntable" back to life - but it will most likely need to be done while at least partially disassembled. A few drops on the center spindle from above is no guaranty that the oil will seep underneath the platter - as most are solid parts. You didn't include a name and model number so I can only speak in generalities rather than specifically to your model.

Much of both the tape drive mechanisms rely on rubber drive belts. These belts look like simple rubber bands but are not (and will not work when replaced with rubber bands either - I know - I've tried). The drive belts, like most simple rubber bands will dry out very quickly and break in the extreme heat found in attics in the summer. Similarly, many turntables are belt driven, too. The belts for those, while longer and thicker, will suffer the same fate in those conditions. Inspection and replacement of these belts seldom can be done without some dis-assembly. The turntables that are direct drive do not have these belts. The drive motors for both types of turntables may benefit from one or two drops of sewing machine oil (or other light, thin oil) applied at the point the drive shaft meets the motor housing. Anything that turns or rubs against other moving or stationary parts can also receive a single drop of oil. Do not over do it - and wipe away excess oil as oil attracts dust and dirt.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply - thank you.

My recors player plays slow when i put it on 33 1/3 rpm and 45 and i dont know why. it also sat out at my dads house in the cold for 2 years. its a mid 80's player with the 8-track and tape deck and idk...


The turntable or motor bearing may be gummed up, or the belt or drive tire may be slipping.

The turntable is usually held in place by an E-shaped spring clip right at the base of the spindle. Carefully spread it with a flat-blade screwdriver just enough to slide it out, but keep a hold on it with a finger because sometimes they will try to fly across the room. Once you have the clip off, you can lift the platter off to service the bearing. Wipe it clean with a soft rag and lubricate with a very light oil (sewing machine or clock oil will work).

Often the automatic drop mechanism will work poorly if the turntable has been sitting a long time. Sometimes the problem is the aforementioned sticky bearings, but occasionally it is necessary to clean and grease the sliding parts.

If the rubber drive component is slipping, you may be able to use rubber conditioner to restore it (supplied by MCM Electronics), otherwise you can get replacement belts from the same company.

I installed a new belt, but the turntable speed is off (too slow). How can I remedy this?


If the turntable has not been used for long time, the lubrication of the motor or platter spindle may have dried out. I have found synthetic oil to be most effective as a lubricant.

I have a problem on fan can you solve? It's a noisy fan


Most of the problems with cooling fans in equipment is due to loss of lubrication. What anybody would do in this case is take out the cover of the receiver and replace the noisy fan, or, in case you are able to do so, repair the fan.
In fans with ball bearings, you can do nothing but disasembling the fan and replace the tiny BB, in fans with sleeves bearings, you may disassemble it, clean it well, and put some oil or light grease in it before reasembling it.

I have a sansui G9700 receiver/amp. The volume control works intermitantly. Must play with it to get volume. I believe I need to replace the potentiometer F3085. where can I get one? Erick G


The potentiometer doesn't need to be replace, it has collected dust inside causing the intermittent operation. Buy a contact cleaner/conditioner to spray inside it and move the potentiometer clockwise and counter clockwise a few times until the dust inside it is gone.
Check this link to find a contact/conditioner cleaner or you can try spraying rubbing alcohol but this could because alcohol doesn't not lubricants properties.
Let me know if you require further assistance.

Realistic (Radio Shack) model STA-430 AM/FM Stereo Receiver. Erratic sound-- cuts in / cuts out, high static. Turning "balance" knob all way to left or right kills all sound. NEED to replace "balance"...


If the receiver is a new one (a couple of years) I suggest you don't replace the balance potentiometer. It's a potentiometer with rare use so the inner carbon film can't be destroyed. I suggest you to open the case and use a contact cleaner spray (clear, without oil) and spray direct at the potentiometer. Turn it all the way from left to right many times. When it will come dry you will see the diference. As far as the suggestion for clear (without oil) contact cleaner spray, I insist on that because the lubricating oil will cause a trap for the dust and will ask for cleaning again and again. Also for potentiometers with rare use there is no need for lubricating oil.

I think that this solution is much easier than chanching a potentiometer, since the device is not too old.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Thanks and regards

you could try and clean the fader for pitch control, use a good quality contact cleaner/lubricant spray, but the one that does not respond at all may need to be replaced.

Cleaning the faders can make them stiff and hard to use. Replace is the go. It will probably need to be done from the inside, or at least the whole front panel removed. It would be a good idea to clean all the switches and buttons. A decent service is what is required.

This is not unusual on DJ gear. it gets a hammering. :)

Lubrication for Pioneer CDJ1000 Pro CDJ Turntable Jog Wheel


You can use WD-40 if there is a control pot which the knob is attached to. If there is a small PC board with no pot, don't spray with oil.
