My drive belt on my optimum turn table has come of how do i put it back on?
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
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.
