We are sure you will love our new website, but if you prefer, you may still scroll down to use our old website. We have all research areas completely intact for our past customers who may prefer to use the navigation style with which they are familiar. New visitors may find the simple listing of part numbers on our old site valuable until we get all these lists transferred to the new site.
General turntable belt
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 simulaneously
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.
