Since the turntable itself doesn't have a volume control the problem is with the amp it is connected to. It should be connected to an amp with a dedicated phono socket. It's no use connecting it to a tape or aux or CD socket. These sockets do not have a built in pre-amp for the magnetic cartridge. If your amp doesn't have a dedicated phono socket then you can buy a Magnetic Cartridge Pre-amp that will plug into a tape socket etc on the amp and have the deck plugged into it. If plugged into a none dedicated socket though you can hear it, the volume will be very low compared to other sources. If you have got it plugged into a dedicated phono socket and the volume is still low, then the internal built pre-amp inside your amp for the deck has failed and will need to be repaired. The pre-amp failure will not effect any other functions of the amp.

If the bearing is worn to the point of a rattle and a small amount of silicone oil won't stop it, then it should be replaced or the motor replaced. These bearings are normally lifetime impregnated with lubricants and can sometimes dry out with use and somewhat seize up causing what may sound like a rattle. If the motor shaft has worn down enough at the bearing point, then a rebuild or replacement is in order.

Have you left the tone arm lift in the up position?
If not: At the end of a record the mechanism lifts the tone arm, returns it to the rest, lowers it and switches off the motor.
It the motor has stopped too early, the tone arm will remain raised.
You can try gently rotating the platter clockwise by hand. This may allow the return cycle to finish.

If the problem is that the cueing control also does not lift the arm high enough, see the Adjustment section of the Owner's Manual:

the anti-skate is set wrong, this stops the arm skatting on to the label in the middle of the record & destroying your stylus tip.

order the spring from the button and i would also replace the button , it ain't the money. Offcourse will a little bit oil around the button also will do the trickI agree that they are to loose , even with a knew unit.

Depends on stuck , i think that i see often with you g dj's and then dirt is the problem and no maintenanance , if you cannot use your height adjustment any more, take the whole unit outand try very thin only , WITHOUT a lot of force to gebtle move it both ways , is very gentle stuff and the problem is often that they've pushed it the wrong side. Number two, the hair heater gently warm it 10 minutes(gloves) ans that will do the the trick and whem loose emediatialy clean and use good lubricant(not to thin), but when you wanna buy a table and the heightadjustment is jammed, it is a bad onr.....runnnnn

Sorry Regina but it sounds to me like you need to ditch the Crosley & step up to a SL 1200 model.
