So for many years I have been looking to get a stereo console. I recently purchased a 1968 Sears Silvertone model.
Although in great cosmetic condition, I was warned it had issues. I get it home and the turn table doesn't spin, one side doesn't have sound when the radio is on and it hums loud. I have gone so far as cleaned up some old grease on the turntable and re conditioned the Idler wheel which got it turning but it still won't turn the correct speed. Seems to not be making enough contact with the motor (loose spring?).
As far as the amp goes, I know it's not the speakers as I swapped the wires and they worked. This is all I feel comfortable working on. Anyone out there that could get this thing up and working great again?
