I would get a vintage turntable and not a new one inexpensive one. The new record players do not last.

If the voice coil to the speaker is damaged, you have to replace it with an other one.

I don't think it's likely that the motor is in trouble just by having the belt wrong. It would require more physical damage to cause the motor to play up. Having said that the motor could have been in trouble before you touched the belt. But you do need a new belt, all you need to do is measure the diameter of the belt in mm. You might also need to measure the width. To find a new belt put the words "turntable drive belt XXmm" into Google. You can add Crosley to the start, but many belts are universal. Your measurements don't need to be spot on with the diameter, so if you have measured it at say 95mm, a 90mm to 100mm belt will do the job. However fitting the new belt is a different matter. You need to know the correct way, or the speed might be wrong. I can't help you with the fitting of it, so you will need to check how to do it. Some makes have YouTube videos of the fitting. I would just look for Crosley and see if any look like your model.

If fitted correctly and there's a problem with speed still, then you should look more closely at the motor.

Check to see if the belt that drives the turntable is slack or off.

Check all the cables and connections IE to the cartridge. If the problem continues contact the dealer who sold it you.

It could be the adapter is just faulty, but you can't tell to you get power to the unit if any part has failed inside (most liklely the transformer if it has).
I found this step-down adapter on amazon which should do the trick, not expensive either.

It sounds like you have too much pressure on the tone arm. Check the underside for springs. You might be able to remedy the problem the old fashioned way. Tape a coin onto the top of the tone arm, as far to the rear as possible. This will eliminate some of the downward pressure onto the record.

Hello Tom, you would have to measure if the engine gets power, also control the key that drives the engine when it starts
Check if you can move the motor shaft with your hand, to confirm that it is not locked
Good luck with the checks

Hola Tom, tendrias que medir si le llega alimentacion al motor, tambien controlar la llave que acciona al motor cuando arranca
Fijate si puedes mover el eje del motor con la mano, para corroborar que no esta trabado
Suerte con los chequeos
Saludos Franco Dosil

Just visit a local radio spares shop. Crosley units are made in China and are low end units.

Or rebuild the old one by using epoxy putty..

There could be a CD jammed in the magazine. Some careful disassembly will be required to find what's wrong.
