Introduzione

The Crosley CR704 turntable is belt driven. This means the motor that spins your records is attached to the platter via a belt.

If you can hear the motor under your turn table working, but the platter won't spin, you may need to adjust or replace your drive-belt. Follow these easy steps to do so.
