Question about Seth Thomas Pacconi Turntable
I also have a Thomas Pacconi turntable that turns at the wrong speed. Came also from QVC. No help anywhere. Anyone out there have a solution?
My older Thomas Pacconi turntable was also turning too slowly. Rather than replacing the belt or needle, I tried using an eye glass repair screwdriver to alter the trimmers inside the motor. But the changes didn't take. Then I tried trimming the power to the motor using the larger trimpot next to the motor with the motor itself set to the 78 rpm setting. But the adjustments to the trimmer didn't get the platter to spin slow enough - it wouldn't play an LP. To get the speed down further I replaced the 1K trimmer with a 10K trimmer I picked up for a buck at Radio Shack and successfully adjusted the turntable down to down to 33 1/3 rpm usage. All that was needed was a soldering iron and a 10K trimpot to get the job done.
