Hello all! I have just purchased this Zenith stereo console and I am attempting to repair the record player part.. I am new to this so bare with me... :shock:

I was told that it may be the “idle” or perhaps it needs a new “motor. “

Any ideas where to start? Turns in but it won’t spin/play a record.

Thanks a million in advance !!!!

How about some pictures and a model number.

Depending on the age, it is often best to completely disassemble the record player for cleaning and lubrication.

Look for model numbers - rubber stamped or pasted to a paper tag underneath the platter or on the bottom of the changer. Each chassis in your console will have its own number.


You can post photos as attachments straight out of the chute. No need to wait 24Hrs.

All rubber (components) be it natural or synthetic, deteriorates with the passage of time.

We advise you to NOT power up the console again,
until you send us the console model number.


Also send some photos of the amplifier.

The console may need some basic electrical
circuit service to prevent future electrical damage.
