Why is the carousel not turning?

I have a Mr. Christmas Carousel, and it stopped turning. Now it just plays music. I tried to open it up, but the bottom wouldn't come off. I have a soldering iron and any other tool that would need. I took the screws out of the bottom and I tried prying it off, but that didn't do anything. If I can get the bottom off, I can fix the problem. I am guessing that it is a disconnected wire. Any ideas on getting the bottom off or an alternate method is greatly appreciated.

I have completely disasembled my carousel. The O ring appears to work well. However, none of the gears are turning, although, none appear to be broken and are well lubricated. Music works fine. Where do I go from here???

por

I had one wire lose and now the entire thing is in a mess where can I find out what wire goes where?

por

Turned over the carousel and wound it several times and it now works again!

por

The white plastic gears in the top of carousel have become unaligned, I took screws out of top and gently with flathead screwdriver, lifted gear even with the other and this fixed problem. When carousel is moved, the top wobbles and moves gears out of alignment

por

I also have this carousel, it play the music but does not have any movement with the animals going up and down. I have removed the bottom and the white plastic wheel is not turning the other gears. So frustrating this is the second one I will be sending back. The first one volume did not turn down.

Take the top off and make sure the gears and track are aligning. Be careful not to force it, Unscrew the screws located on the "underside" of the carousel roof that should give you some wiggle room. Lining the inside of the rooftop is a track which wheels spin on a wavy patterned track. The gear components/lights/music wiring are also located under the dome. Once the main gear components are located an untrained eye can trace the issue if a small rod with a gear head is spinning, and the connected gear head is not rotating with it, then you have found the derailment. In my case the main gear slipped out of place from the gear responsible for rotation of the canopy . A firm push and I herd it slip back on track. I switched the power on and MAGIC it worked again. After placing the top back on its track, full motion was restored. Round and Round while the animals methodically move Up and Down. If that doesn't help let me know and we can video chat it out.

The gear on the drive shaft has cracked. It is held in place only by interference. There is no knurl on the shaft. The gear may slip down or just rotate. The fix is to glue the gear onto the shaft. Clean it well. I used epoxy after roughening the shaft so that the top of the gear was about 0.22 inch from the top of the shaft.

Hello,

the carousel has a basic fault inside the gear.

The first gear inside the gearbox will break after

short time of running. I will replace the plastic gear

by a gear of brass.

You have to dissassemble the carousel from the top.

You remove the top. You will see a screw.

At the lower part of the roof you see 4 snap-ins.

After doing the 4 snap-ins you can remove the

upper roof. You unsold the 2 wires of the wipers.

Yo open the hexagonal screw and the you can

remove the whole mechanics.

If you have questions, contact me

I can not remove the top. What am I doing wrong

por

I didn't realize that the point of the top actually came off. Once I tapped that off then I saw the screw you were talking about. Thanks.

por

I can't get the top off my carousel. It does not screw off and I don't want to break it. Any suggestions? My SKU is 19952. It's an older model. Thanks

por

Mine was glued around the outer edge for security, but was easy to lift off with a small flathead

por

Thank you for your instructions on how to get to the gears. My problem was as simple as the first gear had slipped down. I'm so glad to have my carousel working again....Merry Christmas!

Hi my husband just fixed my carousel it had the same problem of not turning. He took the top canopy of, plugged it in turned it on, just to see what was going on. The problem with mine was one of the gears getting stuck on a grey electrical wire that ran under the gears.He lifted the gear slightly and now it works fine. Hope this helps someone out there.

Liz.

My carousel Will have sound and the swings will come in and out but it will not spin. If I shut the sound off, it will spin once until it hit a switch in the top gear unit and then it stops. It will not restart until I switch on the sound and then off again. Anyone have any ideas why this is occurring?

Check the gear Components.

I was able to remove the top using the instructions given by scheuermann12345@yahoo.de and found that the o-ring that is used as a drive belt between the motor pulley and the gear-box pulley was broken. I am trying to find one and when I do, it should work again. is it a 1 3/4" by 1/32" o-ring.

It took me about 2 hours (Becuase I started from the bottom thinking thats where the motor and gears were) ***WRONG***(Don't waste your time there is nothing there but electrical). but after removing the top I discovered a gear assembly held in place by a screw and nut. Using pinch pliers or a small wrench to remove the nut, will allow access under the flywheel. From here its a piece of cake visually inspect the gears **My issues was one gear was not catching after some minor adjustments (I.E. pushing the gears into the top securely I felt it slip back into place. A visual inspection of the gear components should tell you were the issue is. If none of the gears are moving I recommend checking your motor.

Hi Anyone looking to dismantle the rubber point ON TOP of the carousel. THINK of it as a mushroom. The stem goes down into&towards the roof. I thought of it differently and was surprised to find the piece looking like a mushroom( stem & all). This means you must scrap, CAREFULLY, around The roof side like you are removing a cake from its pan. Hope this helps in removing the top.
