More than likely your motor might be bad. There is nothing else that controls the speed. Are you sure you purchased the correct size belt? Turn on the unit, without connecting the belt, and touch the motor shaft, and see if it fluctuates. You can also just get a marker, and marker a point on the motor shaft. When you turn it on, it will act as a visual indication as to it's speed.

Why does the turntable on my JVC AL-E300 stop when the arm drops on to the record. Just changed belt.


Does it restart if you manually lift the arm up?
If it does then you might have not put the belt on right. Another reason is that the problem was not the belt, but a motor showing the signs that it wasn't coping when under load. This could be caused by grease or muck inside the motor or in the drive functions. However the motor could be faulty.

My JVC turntable has no plug, just a 10-13v lead


Probably as long it produces DC. However you will have to adjust the speed. As the unit was set for a certain voltage which wouldn't change. It will either go fast or slow depending on what the original voltage was. The speed adjuster will either be two presets one for each speed that could be located under the turntable base (covered by a sticker) or on the power board of the deck. Or they might be on the motor itself.

JVC turntable AL-E300 turntable slowing down when tone arm moves iacross


Even if the belt looks fine it's almost certainly the problem. You mentioned "cleaning" - if you got any kind of fluid on the belt it might act as a lubricant and reduce the friction between the belt and the drive wheel, causing the turntable to slow when the tone arm puts a drag on it. The problem may go away when the belt dries out.

JVC Turntable model AL A1 BKX , need to know how to adjust speed


I have just fixed this problem on my Aiwa PX3800 with improvisation.
The platter was rotating too slowly, I didn't know how much too slow only that the records sounded wrong.
I imagined the belt, motor and platter as a bicycle gear and so simply increased the gear... I achieved this by winding a thin strip of a electrical insulation tape around the motor head to increase it's radius (like changing up to a larger front cog on a bicycle gear).
I could then time the rotations and remove a layer or two of the tape accordingly until I have achieved a perfect 45rpm. 33 is still way out but I only listen to 45s!
Be sure to trim excess tape from the motor head with a craft knife/scalpel or it'll stick to the platter.
Poor man fix up.
