Question about NAD 533 Turntable

1 Answer

I bought a nad turntable about 2 years ago. I have not used it much. Maybe 50-60 hrs in total. I have noticed that after playing records for about 15 mins the turntable slows down. Do I need a new belt or new motor or is there anything I can do to fix the question?

Are you sure it is a belt drive, I would have thought that it might be a direct drive. Let's assume that it is a belt drive first. Belts should not stretch in such a short period, so try clean the belt. Be sure to use only something like isopropel alcohol, most other solvents will have a detrimental affect on the rubber. Make sure that the spindle from the motor is clean and not to polished so that it has some grip on the belt. Also wipe the drive flange on the underside of the platen with the alcohol. Clean the platen shaft with a solvent and lightly grease it with a light grease, a light oil will also do. Re-assemble the turntable and try if that helped.

If it is a direct drive, there is nothing that you can really do except to strip it and lubricate the center shaft, and that will most likely have to be done from the underside. I doubt if the platen will come off from the top.

It is highly unlikely that it will be a stepped friction drive, those were used on cheaper older models, but the solution there is to make sure that the wheels are clean and soft and showing grip on the rubbing sides. Once again the alcohol will help.

My Rockola Tempo 1, just stopped mid record. Previously the carousel would slow down/hesitate at a certain point when selecting, but never stopped. Switched it on occasionally, with no movement.


I would put money on the belt snapping. 5 years is about right. Especially if you do not use it often. The slow down and hesitate is even more indication of a belt getting hard and then slipping and snapping. They need to keep moving to stay soft. Get a new belt and you will be likely good to go.

8mm JVC tapes put into a VHS tape that will play on a combined TV and VCR. Please, please, I need your help! Found tapes from 15 years ago.


You need an 8mm player or the camera that recorded the tapes. Connect the video and audio from the 8mm player/camera to a VHS recorder. Put the 8mm on play and the VHS on record.

How do I set-up my NAD 533 turntable for initial use???


This Turntable looks nice. The belt goes around the two spindles [one big one small. the speed is adjusted by choosing which part of the small spindle you put the belt on. The upper platter rests on the big spindle and doesn't seem to be secured to it.
The counterweight should simply screw onto the back of the arm.

How can I get an instruction manual?


Recording from tape is very similar to recording from the turntable, but you have to select tape as the source. There will be a button labelled something like PHONO/TAPE/AUX with which you select TAPE and then record as you would for a vinyl disc but you press play on the tape instead of playing a record. Here's something very similar which should help you. Good luck and I hope you get to save your memories.

I have a NAD turntable. I have noticed that on occasions there seems to be a background crackle.. Thought it was dust at first !! Have swapped the connection over where the turntable plugs into the amp....


Either you have a poor earth connection or you are getting a lot of static from the records you play. The best way of getting rid of static is a spray you can get for cleaning records. Search on-line for Anti-Static Record Cleaner.

I've bought my NAD C326BEE amplifier almost two years ago, and i got promised a hell of a good quality and that it would last for YEARS. But ever since i bought the damn amplifier, it has been shutting off...


Hi there,
I'm also a Nad fan. I find this pretty odd that you should loose two in such a short space of time. The cutting out is due to the "protection circuit". I would be inclined to get your speakers checked out as if they are faulty or not "matched" to the amp, it will trigger the amp to "protect itself" and shut off.

Technics SL-L3 turntable no sound until warm up


either the cartridge is bad in the phonograph tone arm.  Or the pre-amp in the stereo is bad...remember that the turntable is the only accessory that uses the pre-amp input on the stereo.  I'm betting the pre-amp is bad.
