If this is about a record player then I would check the belt. You will have to remove the platter to get to it. Some platters have holes in them for accessing the belt without removing it. To see which you have you will have to remove the mat on the turntable.
You must lower the motor down as far as possible and then tilt the saw blade so the back end of the motor where the belt is housed is exposed and accessible as possible. Then remove the cover housing at the back end of the motor. This will expose the belt. Thenyou can remove the old belt and install the new one.
It depends what kind of drive this model has. It's possible that since this is a model that has the 78rpm speed it could use the old type of drive. If so then what happens is that a mains powered motor has a three position pole on it. A rubber tyre presses on each section on the pole. The speed switch manually moves it up or down. The tyre presses on the motor and on the rim of the platter. A worn tyre or one that is not moving to the right section on the motor will cause incorrect speed. The only other form of drive would be a belt, but not many belt drive turntables were built with the 78 speed of this date.
Lift the turn table off the case and check the belt if it has one or the idler wheel that mechanically turns the table. Also check the motor to see that it rotates when you simulate a record play moving the needle carrier towards the center, The power must be on to test it. Becareful not to touch the 115 VAC line.
The belt has either come off the pulley or the belt is slipping. Open th top access hatch and check the belts . If belt is off replace and tighten , if it is just loose tighten the belt.If it is not the belt and the motor is humming but not turning you will need to replace the motor's starting capacitor.Good luck and please don't forget to rate this answer, Thanks
