    My turntable is not working too well. It's difficult to get it spinning. I'm
    told it does not have a belt. I would guess then that it has a motor. Does
    anyone know about the repairs for it? Could this potentially be more than a
    motor replacement?

    Well worth taking the circlip of the centre spindal, lifting off the
    platter and giving it a good clean, and perhaps a drop of froil (very
    thin oil, available from model shops)

    There is an electrical adjustment, but cleaning it worth doing first.

    Good idea. Thanks. I'll try it.

    As it turns out, it looks like three very small hex screws hold it down.
    Oddly, when I had it tilted to look more closely it started moving quite
    well. I then made the usual adjustments and now its doing quite well. I
    think some fine oil is still the ticket.
  5. The most common problems on these involve cleaning the controls and
    switches. The speed select, speed vernier adjustments, possibly the power
    switch and internal coarse speed adjustments.
