Turntable Spins Too Fast?

Postby scribby31 » 25 Mar 2010 20:42

Hi,

I am new to turntables, and bought a used Micro Seiki MB-18 recently. When I got it home I found that it spins too fast.

What are some common problems which might cause this? Could a loose belt cause this to happen?

The problem is more than likely the wrong belt they come in different widths,thickness&lenth's the belt you need is a PRB frx 25.0 it is 3/16 widex1/16 thick.

A new belt solved the problem. It sounds great now! Any suggestions on the proper set up for the tone arm on this unit? (Micro Seiki MB-18)
