      I bought something on Ebay years ago called “liquid bearing”.

          Hello,

          Sometimes (and more often since a few time), the arm of my Beogram 6006 does not return to parking position at the end of the disc.

          It happens when the end-groove is very close to the center, so the reading arm is far on the label.

          When pressing stop, I hear the motor spinning but the arm does not move. Same with the fast return key.

          It looks as the moving cart has gone out of the guiding spindle.

          Today, I solved the problem by moving this spindle by hand, but it is not satisfactory.

          A played a “shorter”LP with a larger end-groove palyed without problem.

          Can I check something?

          Thanks by advance,

          Yann.

            Replace the wedge-shaped belt for the carriage motor.

            Also dirt and/or dry lubricants towards the leftmost end of the threaded spindle can cause
            excess friction and make the belt slip.
            Clean the threaded shaft and add a handful tiny drops of teflon oil.

              Thanks Martin,

              I found the belt on Beoparts, but I absolutely don’t know where to find the teflon oil.

              Is there a brand/name that you can recommend?

              Kind regards,

              Yann.

                Hi Martin,

                The new belt is arrived and I sourced teflon bicycle oil for dry condition.

                A question: How to remove safely the transport in order to clean the threaded spindle and what attention points should I take care of?

                Kind regards,

                Yann.

                  Update:

                  Belt exchanged.

                  Threaded spindle cleaned withoud removing the arm. Not perfect but I did what I could.

                  Then lubrification with the above-mentioned lubricant.

                  The arm acts now as designed.

                  Let’s hope it will last.

                  I’d liked to have the BG recapped, but it’s out of my competencies.

                  Yann.
