The motor and idler spin fine when I lift the platter off but as soon I put the platter back on it locks up. I think the brake system might have something to do with it? Any ideas?

Check the drive wheel for hardening or excessive wear. I've had a few that would spin slowly, intermittently or not at all, because the wheel could no longer grip the platter.

On any record player, you have to make sure the idler wheel goes inside the turntable while putting TT back on. Could also be bearins for turn table are gummed severely.

Figured out the problem, the wire that should disengage the brake had snapped.

Ah. Glad you were able to fix it. Sorry it took so long to answer. Been having major computer problems.
