I have a 1955 Grundig console stereo. I really dont know anything about this kind of thing but I love my stereo. I had and elderly german man fix it when I bought it 5 yrs ago. He is out of business and I cant find anyone who works on them. Maybe someone could tell me some stuff to check out on it.....actually not me my husband. The power comes on but the turntable wont work. When it first started doing it it would work on and off now not at all. What can we check?? I gotta have my stereo and my husband and I are not too swift when it comes to this kind of stuff. If this is not the best forum for me to get info on vintage stuff maybe you could point me in the right direction thankyou
I had an old grundig. the turntable is driven by a capstan against which a spring loaded rubber faced wheel rides. this wheel makes contact with the inside edge of the turntable platter. carefully remove the platter by slowly turning it clockwise. there may be a c-ring holding it so remove it first. inspect the capstan and idler wheel. clean the rubber and oil the shafts. there's probably a lot of stuff in there by this time.
