Lazy Susan Cabinet

I have a corner cabinet with a double lazy susan attached in it. The top and bottom lazy susan used to turn together - turn the top and the bottom turned also. We always turn the top rather than reaching down to turn the bottom. All of a sudden they don't5 turn together. When we turn the top - sometimes the bottom will turn but mostly it won't. The bottom is not stuck - it will turn independently without a problem. any ideas how I can get them both to turn again by just spinning the top like it used to?

Thanks

Under the bottom of the top shelf there will be a hub with a setscrew.
That setscrew probably needs to be tightened.
Sometimes when that screw or screws is loose... the shelf slides down.

Thanks Pete - but mine doesn't look quite like that. I have tightened every screw that I could see. Mine seem to be on top of the shelves - if I look under the top shelf I can't see any screws - just an indent - if that makes any sense. If I turn the bottom - both sections turn - if I turn the top - only the top turns.

OK I can't get the photo upload to work AT ALL. I reduced the size of my photo to 94.2 KB, I can get to the upload screen, I can see the "from my computer", I can browse and find the file - then I hit the Upload Files button and nothing happens ! ! ! Can I do it from Dropbox? If not I guess I will have to set up a photobucket account

Exactly what is turning [or not] Need to pin point where it's slipping.

If I turn the bottom shelf - the posts on top and bottom turn and the two shelves naturally turn. But who wants to bend down to the floor to turn this? If I turn the top shelf - the middle post (top and bottom) turns but sometimes only the top shelf turns and sometimes both turns, almost like all of a sudden it catches and then the bottom will turn a little and then stop.

All help is appreciated - I would think this is a simple fix but I just can't see how to do it.

If you turn the top shelf and the bar turns but the bottom shelf does not.... the setscrew for the bottom shelf is probably loose. That one may be a little harder to get to.

Usually when you turn the heavier shelf the lighter one will spin too, even if the setscrews aren't tight, because of minimal weight.
