My turntable (6052)now has a slight problem that is intermittent.When operating the rotary switch the bridge will not move until I move the manual lever on the bridge. From there on it will work in both directions and may operate as normal for a few operations,then stop again .The motor has been oiled.It appears to me that an interlocking feature is occasionally not operating or locking,but what would i know? Has any one had this problem and what is the fix please guys?:bang::bang::bang: Cheers Peter

As an update to the turntable,I have dismantled the motor drive,checked the operation and reassembled,it works ok.I think the problem is the relay is not being operated electrically(ok manually)So further investigation required,does anyone know the circuitry for the rotary switch? :bang::bang::bang: cheers Peter

Second update,after a lot of testing,adjustments and working out how it works,my turntable motor is dead,one segment is open circuit ,%#@#%*),stuffed ,etc.Does anyone know where I can get a motor that will fit ,I think a genuine replacement will be beyond the budget of the railway financial controller (the wife) ?         Cheers Peter

Peter,

I don't know much of the Fleischmann turntable but here you can find an original replacement for the motor:
http://www.ekmpowershop2.com/ekmps/shops/aandhmodels/50-61521-motor-for-ho-gauge-turntable-13446-p.asp
But it's not cheap and you have to call them for the shipping price to Australia.

An alternative on this page:
http://www.digital-bahn.de/bau_ds/ds_motor.htm
See the Tillig motor at the bottom of that page. I hope you understand a bit German? My German is not very good but what I understood of it is that you have to be a bit carefull. The dimensions of this motor are a bit bigger than the original Fleischmann motor. So you have to cut away a few peaces. Once you have done that ther is no way back! Also the placement has to be done precise to make the turntable rotate smooth.

Hope this was helpfull for you. Good luck with it!

Alwin

After looking at the motor, I might offer a "suggestion" which can be tossed out with the bath water. I would look at small SERVOS for r/c applications. Most of these can be made to operate 360 degrees with little trouble and the price? Here in the US, they can run from $5 USD on up. Of course the mount would need to be modified but the torque of these servos would certainly operate a turntable. Just a thought.
