DP-59L ringing noise from motor

Postby lorr0210 » 11 Aug 2017 23:50

When I start the TT I can hear a ringing/humming noise. However, not audible through the speakers once music is playing. Pretty sure it's the motor, but just wondering if it should be silent, or loud enough for me to hear?

Thanks in advance.

Be sure the magnetic pickup hear is not dragging on the inside of the platter outer ring. this can make the TT inoperable.

Yep, I've a feeler gauge set and it's set to spec, so that's not the issue. The sound is coming from u8nder the TT/plinth.

I had a problem with the way the transformer was hung on a plate with washers, and originally I thought it was a bad main bearing. I cut some thin rubber sheet to put between the two surfaces, and now it is dead quiet. I can't think of anything else.
