Sankyo 2000H motor not turning, belt is ok
Got a 2000H beater for $10 and it will be my first one to service! Watched that famous YouTube video and replaced the lamp; yay! Gonna run through the rest of the services tonight. But... My issue is, the spindles don't turn in reverse or forward, but the belt looks ok. It does feel a bit loose. But when I took the light clip off from the front, the motor started turning and I ran a film through it. It worked for a bit, but then stopped again a couple times. Maybe the belt inside is too loose? Or do you think something else might be causing the motor/spindles to not actually turn at times, even though the fan is on, etc.?
Tonight I'll replace the belt, but I'm concerned that might not be the problem. Thanks for your takes on this, sorry for rambling!
