I was fortunate to get this cabinet a couple of months ago, Radio works fine, and has sound. The turntable rotates for all the speeds (33-45-78). But looks like the needle is not working (I lightly rubbed it to test for sound, sorry if it is the wrong way to test it), anyone has experience replacing/changing the needle?

I also have the original manual

Turntable: Wester Chicago Model 100-1

Thank you for any help.

This link should put you on to ''the voice of music''
I believe that if you give them the make and model number of your turntable or the cartridge number,
they can help you . If the link does not work google ''the voice of music''

Welcome to the forum.

Before you go any farther, has this unit's chassis been
electrically restored ?

This must be done to prevent damage to yourself and
the electrical circuits.


Minimum of all old capacitors (electrolytic and wax/paper)
must be replaced. Resistors should be checked to be
w/in specs. Tubes checked for possibly shorts.
Wiring visually checked for insulation integrity.

"But looks like the needle is not working"

Most likely the crystal cartridge.

"Before you go any farther, has this unit's chassis been

This is necessary for sure.

And V-M site will probably suggest a P51 cartridge replacement.
