Question about Crosley CR248 Turntable

1 Answer

Crosley CR66 turntable not turning, belt is fine - motor?

We bought this new, used the turntable a few times, then we've used the radio and CD player mostly in the past year. Unit has not been moved or jostled, so it surprised us when the turntable would not work tonight. I checked the belt, it's still there, and we can't hear any noise in the motor--it's dead. Any ideas?

    Okay, after an Internet search I found an answer that worked for our unit, a Crosely CR66.

    With the power on and dial set to "phono," I GENTLY moved the arm to the RIGHT until I heard a "click" and voila! The turntable turned on.

    I immediately posted this solution on another person's post and am including the solution here as well.

    Hope this helps someone else with their Crosley entertainment unit.

    I'm back--found a solution on my own which worked! Apparently the Crosley manual says to MOVE THE ARM to the RIGHT until you hear a "click" and the turntable powers on and begins turning. (Make sure to turn on power and adjust the dial to "phono" before you do.)

    Found a solution that worked! GENTLY move the phono arm to the RIGHT until you hear a
    click Tof course, do this after you turn on the power via the volume
    dial and set the other dial to"phono"). Doing this turns on the
    turntable when you haven't used it in awhile. This worked for us, hope
    it works for you.

    If
    it doesn't work, you can check the belt by removing the tiny clip at
    the center post and gently lift the turntable platform/tray to peek at
    the motor and belt underneath. The pulley is on the right at the 2
    o'clock position, the belt should be in contact with it.

I have had my crosley cr66 rochester for 8 years. all of a sudden, the turntable wobbles when i put a record on it.


Pull the platter off and look to see if it has a bearing, if it does try and find a replacement for it.

I don't know how to get the turn table to start


Once the turntable mode is selected picking up the arm and moving it to the record should start the deck spinning.

We just got a crosley radio CR66 model,we cannot get the turntable to activate,it wont turn!It is brand new! so I dont understand whats wrong? we hear a click sound but nothing happens please help ty Bill


remove the rubber plate at the top of the record player,, under that is a metal plate, in that plate is a large "sight hole" look in that as you turn the plate around,, look for the belt that has fallen off the motor shaft and the plate itself,, if you can't locate it, there is a spring clip at the base of the post that holds the metal plate on, remove that , you will see the motor shaft, and the ridge on the underside of the metal plate that the belt has to be on, they sometimes fall off in shipping,

I just bought a replacement needle for a Crosley CR66 4 in 1 record player and now my records sound distorted and far away


It might be that you have caused an earth wire to the cartridge to come off or loose. Check the connections to the cartridge.

Crosley Record Player Stopped Spinning...


I had this same problem with my Crosley 704 and it bamboozled me to no end.

After digging around I dug up the manual online (I bought mine used so I didn't have one to consult). It turns out the record stops when it gets to the end, and to get it spinning again you have to lift up the tone arm and move it right (past the holding latch) until it clicks, and voila, it starts spinning again, ready for a new record.

You'd think that they coulda made it more obvious :(

My Crosley combination turntable/CD/cassette/AM & FM radio has recently started giving me fits. I bought it new in 2003 and, until a few months ago, it worked great. But now the turntable arm won't click...


my Crosley CR6007A-MA turntable's sound is very, very low. You can't even hear it barely. I haven't had it long at all and it wasn't broke due to any sort of abuse. I really have no idea why it would do this for no reason! Help!
