The mechanics in your arm postion is throwing the switch. A mechanical postion switch has sliped out of postion, a arm from the toner arm post has moved to an encorrect postion, or if your turntable has a multi-album play abilty your 'next to play record' post postion sensor switch is out of postion. Last or first is your belt could fool ya. Your belt may have a weak spot on it in turn no friction underload.

If you have difficulty lifting the platter off, raise it as far as you can and gently tap the spindle with a sift-faced hammer.

Haven't used the turntable in years. Went to use it today and the turntable doesn't begin turning when the arm is lifted. Everything else works. Thanks, Al


If this is a belt driven turntable, then you have to replace the belt, as this units gets old the belts loosen up as well.

My KD-291RC has power but my turntable wont turn. I touch the needle and I can hear its on and when I move the arm towards the record or set it on it it will not turn. Help?


Your turntable is belt-driven, it's likely that the belt just fell off. The belt lives under the turntable. On my turntable (a totally different model) the turntable lifts off.

Turntable will not turn (spin)


It would appear this is a belt drive turntable - here's a link to a site where you can order a replacement, although you may be able to find a cheaper one.

Won't start


I had the same problem with the arm constantly starting and stopping, and the suggestion above works. Despite, I was a little confused on how to do it. Here's what I did in detail:

- Remove the turntable mat.
- Unhook the belt and remove the turntable platter.
- Once the platter's removed, you should see two plastic white gears in the middle. Rotate the center gear clockwise until its tab hits the larger gear. The center gear should move freely and without resistance until you hit that gear.
- Put the platter back, making sure to re-hook the belt around the spindle.
- Put the mat back.

After that, you should be set!

Turntable will not turn


This is a fully manual turntable, meaning, the tonearm will not engage a switch that powers up the unit. You have to turn it on. The power switch is towards the rear of the unit, on the top, right at the rear of the tonearm. You'll see a button. Press that button, and your unit should power up.

If it does not power up, then you have a faulty unit. If you bought this new, I would suggest returning it. If it is not new, then either you have a bad fuse, or burned out transformer. The fuse you can replace yourself, but the transformer requires a technician.

Hope this helps.
