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?

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 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 :(
Try this - 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.
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!
