Customer Question
I have a vintage TEAC...
I have a vintage TEAC A 4010-S Tape recorder. Yes, it's old but until very recently, it has performed without issue. I now seem to have a drive problem that I took in for repair at a local TEAC repair place. They held it for over a month and finally after I called to question the repair situation they told me that the original motor has been replaced but the replacement motor doesn't fit ! ! ! ! Why would a company issue a replacement part that DOESN'T FIT ! Are they handing me a line of bull ? The next closest authorized TEAC repair shop is over 300 miles away. But if the replacement part doesn't fit. Why drive 300 miles and wait another 6 weeks if the same thing happens. What should I do next ? Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Thanks Michael for getting back to me. I think I pretty much explained my situation. My only real problem will be trying to find a repair shop that can fix it......if it can be fixed ! I found a fellow in Columbus, Ohio (approx. 150 miles south of me) that would try but he wants me to provide the part...............here we go again.........the part question raises it's ugly head again ! I was told this unit has 3 motors ???? How do I know which one is busted ? ? ? HELP !

Regardless of whether they are referring to a hub motor or a capstan motor, this isn't the right replacement! Take a look at this page - you can see the various motors that it uses - you can also see that they have specific form factors and whether it's the original or the replacement, they would have to be the same. This page has the part numbers as well.
