The simple rule of thumb is after you lift up the turntable platter turn it upside down and see if the belt sits on the inner rim tightly. That is if you after putting the belt on the rim and shake it upside down the belt should not fall off. And if you want to measure the belt-- remove it and place it in cold water for an hour and then after wiping it clean place it on its flat side on a table ( best is glass surface ). Measure its length with out stretching it in centimeters and subtract about a centimeter from the total. This will give you a new belts measurement
Eg; If the belt measures 19cm, subtract 1cm from it and go buy an 18cm.belt for replacement.

Pioneer turntable is powering up but not not spinning?


Turntable Drive Belt


The chances are the rubber drive belt has either broken or stretched so that it has fallen off the drive pulleys.


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

Turntable will not turn off


Sounds to me like the belt has snapped or slipped off. Lift the platter off the table. On the inside of the platter you will notice a second ring, or rim. the belt should be put on the outside of the second rim while the platter is still in your hands. Next, slide back the platter and look for the spindle running the platter through one of the big holes in the platter. Slip the belt onto the spindle and turn with your hand to make sure it runs freely. Hope this helpsmicmor100.jpg

Hello My turntable do not spin


This turntable is a belt driven type. The belt wraps around the underside of the platter and the drive motor spindle. If the belt has slipped off, broken or is so old that it is slipping - the platter will not turn. Usually you can remove the rubber cover on the top of the platter to use access openings beneath to put the belt back on.

The turntable product brochure, owner's manual and related info is available from Pioneer, here.

I hope this helps!

My pioneer PL990 turntable, the pitch wavers.


try cleaning the inner ring on the underside of the actual turntable platter and also the motor spindle using isoprynol alcohol or use neat clear spirits like bacardi/vodka with cotton wool etc. if black residue comes off either the platter or the motor spindle that will be residue from the old belt that could cause the fluctuation in speed? good luck.

FAIRLY SIMPLE...

1) REMOVE THE PLATTER

2) WRAP THE BELT AROUND THE INNER CIRCLE FOUND ON THE BOTTOM SIDE OF THE PLATTER, THE BELT SHOULD FIT PERFECTLY....

3) PLACE THE PLATTER BACK INTO PLACE...

4) THROUGH ONE OF THE SPACES ON THE PLATTER, TAKE THE BELT AND PLACE IT OVER THE MOTOR WHEEL...THAT SHOULD DO IT.

Platter problem


It sounds like the motor pulley is too high. try to screw down the pulley, maybe it came loose...The platter is designed specifically for the turntable and should fit perfectly in place....Another reason might be that the platter does not belong to the turntable, it might be too small and therefore sits lower than it should.

Remove any tape from the belt

That is the drive belt for the turntable .
It's not that hard to set up. Take the mat off the platter and wrap the belt around the underneath -slightly-less-diameter portion.

With a pointed end needle or something like it , put the tip between the belt and the platter portion it's wrapped against.
Pull the belt away from that( keeping the rest of the belt on the platter portion) and set it over the motor pulley. This is usually a small diameter brass spindle unit

Lift the platter. PLace the belt under the platter on the inside ring. PLace it back on the turntable, and you can stretch it back onto the motor with your finger or black stick through one of the holes on the platter, while the platter is positioned where it is accessible. if you need a replacement, try...
