Once the needle snaps free of the head of the arm, remove the needle by pulling down. Take care to only pull on the red portion. WHEN ATTACHING NEW NEEDLE:  Slide the back (open U shaped side) of the needle on first, then  press to snap the front into place. You should hear a click.

On the Crosley CR7002A I am having a problem with the turntable. When the tone arm is moved over any part of the record is slides back to the home position (rest). Is their any adjustment I can make to fix this? Thanks.
