Question about Technics SL-1210 Turntable
The belt stretched. We ordered another. Looks right, but it's too large. Is there a trick or was I sent the wrong belt? The guy in my office who knows this stuff best is at Navy Reserve for two weeks.
The belt wraps around the bottom of the metal turntable platter. Put the platter back on, then rotate the platter so that you can see the motor. Pinch the belt around the motor, and that's it. If it's too big, then the belt you ordered is too big. You have to get the correct size. Not just any size belt will work. If it doesn't fit, you'll have playing issues, and you'll wear out your motor, records, and styli very quickly.

The chances are the rubber drive belt
has either broken or stretched so that it has fallen off the drive
You will need to gain access to the
underside of the turntable to replace it.
With most turntables the process will
be to secure the tone arm (a rubber band will do the trick) before turning the
whole thing upside down and unscrewing the base.
Replacement drive belts are easily
available on the internet. Search by make and model number of your turntable
