How to Put the Belt on a Numark PT-01

The Numark PT01 is a belt-drive turntable, unlike many other turntables that use a drive system known as direct drive. Belt-driven turntables require maintenance. The belt needs to be replaced once every few years. If you notice the turntable has trouble spinning before then, consider replacing the belt to see whether that fixes the problem. You can easily access the Numark's internal components, including the motor and the belt, by removing the back cover.
