AKAI CS-M02 Cassette Tape Deck

Hi,
first time using this forum and thank you to anyone who can assist or advise.
I have just purchased an Akai CS-M02 from Ebay it seems in reasonable condition it is for my youngest daughter to complement her Akai AM2450 amplifier, Akai AT-2450L Tuner and Akai AP-306 Turntable. When the Power Button is pushed in the Motor immediately comes on even though there is no Tape in the Transport, can anyone advise please is this normal for these Cassette Decks ?

Thank You all again for any advice or clarification.

Cheers

Steve

According to the schematic it appears that the motor is on all the time.

Hi Johnnysan,

thank YOU for your kind response which is appreciated.

Would you expect the Motor to be noisy ? Having said that when playing a Tape the noise is obviously obscured.

Thank YOU again

Steve
