    I don't think it's overstretched - it's completely loose and separate from the rest of the machine - I don't know where to re-thread it or what it goes around

  • keysandbass Aug 23, 2008

    is there anything online that shows the inside of the machine or the belt path? everythign seems to be working and present -

  • keysandbass Aug 24, 2008

    Thanks, but seems like it should be easier than that

  • keysandbass Aug 24, 2008

    Perfect - exactly what I needed to know and already working....many thanks.

The belt looks like its very cheap, but if it is over streched and breaks.then the new one would be very costly.so if you take it to the repair center it will help you much.as it would not be too costly .as nothing has broken or damaged till now.still its not to easy to fit the belt manually without perfect knowledge.thanks.please do rate the solution.

You need to mount new belt holder.. Better go to nearest auto mechanic services to adjust or install the belt clip.

    i have worked on the crosleys and many other belt drive turntables. so if you can decipher wether the belt needs to be adjusted or wether the belt is overstretched. i can assist you further.

    yes im sure i can get you some literature that wont be fore your turntable but will show the process of changing a belt drive belt and how to route it. Which on this model its pretty standard to any model.it generally goes the belt needs to be put through a small guid then wrapped around the motor/trans then you pull it back towards the platters running gear and wrap the belt along the ring for the platter. At which point the platters gear should be on the lowest tension from there you can adjust it to fit snug. but let me find y ou some pictures showing the process in detail.

    thanks,
    Nate

    General turntable belt installation instructions:
    1.) Remove rubber pad/mat.
    2.) Remove platter just beneath mat.
    2b)
    Some platters are "press fit" onto the center shaft and seemingly can't
    be removed, the trick is to lift up on the platter while simultaneously
    lightly tapping on the top of the shaft with a hammer. While others may
    have a "E" clip at the base of the center shaft which must be removed
    with a screwdriver, with care that it doesn't fly away before the
    platter can be removed.
    3.) Use rubbing Alcohol soaked cloth to
    clean outside of large 'lip' or ledge underneath platter and the
    (usually) brass pulley shaft on platter drive motor which should now be
    visible.
    4.) Install belt around the ledge underneath platter. Belt should be somewhat snug without falling off.
    5.) Optional: Clean then Lube main center platter shaft of turntable with 3-in-1 oil or similar.
    6.) Re-install platter.
    7.) look thru 'access window' in platter and rotate platter until platter motor becomes visible.
    8.) Stretch belt from platter ledge over to far side of motor pulley.
    9.) Re-install mat and start player.

The rubber band fell off


Normally the belt does not go through any special tensioners or anything of that nature,The belt should go directly from the spindle motor onto the inside of the platter. Hook the belt on the motor section and lay the belt open wide inside the turntable. Next, replace the platter and manouvre the belt onto the platter inside, through the two large holes

Tone Arm skips past first song


Hello, A. Do not try to close the case when there is a record inside!! The fact that the turntable cannot do this is not a design flaw--you'll be hard pressed to find a portable turntable that can close with a record inside because if you were to pick up the player with one inside, it could easily slip off of the spindle and scratch against the sides of the player.
B. Are you using the cueing lever to lift the tone arm before you place it on the record? Read the instructions to see where the cuing lever is (it's a little switch on the right side of the tone arm). When you lift it, the tone arm will lift up and allow you to position it wherever you want on a record, then you depress the lever to make the tone arm touch the record and being playing.
I hope that helps!
