The lever to push to "stop" is "jammed" halfway and the turntable keeps turning while the power is on.

Don't want to force the lever.

Does someone know what to do to clear the "jam"?

Thanking you in anticipation, DHenshaw.

The jam will most likely be underneath in 'the works' rather than a mechanical obstruction on top. I'd be checking underneath for a broken component or a piece of foreign matter causing a blockage. Failing that, some silicon spray on the bushes and bearings of all moving parts may assist.

Brad,
Thanks for your help.
I removed the turntable and nothing appeared to be broken. The record player has been in regular use and the owner thinks she pushed the lever control to "stop" just to stop the record that had played but was still turning, because a "grandchild incident" ws taking place, and that is when it jammed.

Anyway, I fiddled around and eased the controls into doing what they should do, and all "came good".

She and her grandchildren are delighted, and send their thanks, as do I.

Regards, DHenshaw
