Question about Crosley Audio Players & Recorders
My Crosley record player is spinning too fast at the 33RPM setting. What can I do?
Mismatch speeds on older turntables is normally due to either 1) a kink in the speed switch mechanism or 2) a hardening and slipping of the rubber drive wheel.
A very small motor with a chamfered shaft drives the rubber drive wheel, and the wheel is moved by the speed control up and down the drive shaft to produce various rpm speeds.
In your case, it's likely turning at 45rpm because it isn't settling onto the 33rpm part of the shaft.
Piddle with the speed control, then count the speed (number of turns in a minute) You'll figure it out!

I have the Crosley89 stackomatic.
the 33.3 rpm was more like 35.5rpm. Sounded awful .
I took off the bottom panel, found the motor,
put small jewelers slot screwdriver DEEP into hole marked
"L" ( I guess for Long playing)
and when I made contact I turned counterclockwise just a drop.
When I checked it went down to 33.6rpm
so I left it. Sounds good to me and I didn't have to throw out the machine. Hope this helps.
