Just bought new Crosley record player and turntable won't

Customer Question

Customer: Just bought new Crosley record player and turntable won't spin. Reinstalled belt as directed but motor will not engage to turn table.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: no
JA: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $18) to post your type of question to Consumer Electronics Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. Are you willing to wait a bit?
Customer: Instructions said to move arm to the right first, but the brace is in the way.
JA: OK. Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

Hi there,

Can you test the motor using a voltmeter to check if it is receiving power?

Also check if the motor will spin when the belt is not fitted.
