Audio equipment needs a tune-up, especially after years in storage. A quality needle improves the clarity of record players, and a well-cleaned tape deck produces a clearer sound and lowers the chances of damaging fragile tapes. The service manual for your specific model is the most authoritative source for tune-up instructions. You can find it with your model's audio parts at Sears PartsDirect.
Faulty motors cause rotation problems on turntables and tape decks. On record players, try turning the shaft manually. If you meet resistance or hear squeaking, lubricate the motor bearings. If the shaft still doesn't turn smoothly, replace the motor. On tape decks, listen for changes in sound speed or crinkling noises. Rule out the possibility that the cassette is faulty by playing it on a working deck or test your player with a different cassette. Dirty or cracked pinch rollers on tape players can also cause improper playback and fluttering noises, so inspect these before replacing the motor.
Amplifiers and receivers produce bigger sounds when you boosting the electrical current. If there is no sound, the stereo amplifier may be faulty. Inspect the fuses for smoky markings, which indicate a blown fuse, and check wires for loose connections. Test the system with a different speaker to rule out speaker problems. If you find nothing else wrong, replace the amplifier from the selection of stereo equipment parts at Sears PartsDirect.
