Garrard Type A Turntable Speed settings are off, except the 45RPM

The turntable has not been used in the last 15 years. When I started it up again all the speed settings were frozen. However, after lubrication and patience I succeeded in getting the 78 up to 60, the 33 up to 16 RPM, and the 16 to 2 RPM, but no further. What do you think the problem is?

Forget solution #1

Here's what you do:

Your Garrard Type A is most likely an idler-drive deck (With a rubber wheel driving the turntable).

- Under the rubber mat there's a "C" shaped clamp to be found around the spindle. Remove that and keep safe. Now remove the platter and behold the 'guts' of the monster. On the left you should see a thick rubber wheel with a metal core inside, directly under that wheel you'll find a 3 step pulley protruding from under the frame.

Plug in the AC and turn on. Carefully look at the pulley. It should spin fast. If not, immediately unplug the power otherwise you'll burn out the motor. If the pulley spins too slow, the specially inserted factory grease/oil may have "set" or dried out during the silent years..

The same goes for the grease/ oil which is inserted in the spindle-bus. We'll get there later.

- Make sure the AC is OFF! High Voltage Inside!

- Lift the frame from its casing/ plinth and make sure it's completely supported when upside down, so you don't damage the arm!

- Locate the BIG motor! :-)

- The lower bearing screws may be 'glued' on with red lacquer. (Shellac) (This was done to prevent repairs by users (Warranty Expiration)
- Unscrew those and lift off the bearing. (a light tap with a small mallet may break the lacquer and make it easier to unscrew. DON'T TRY to unscrew forcefully as the screws may get damaged! They're made of brass I thought. )
- Clean it out with a tissue or a non-pilling piece of cloth. The Top bearing can be found under the motor-pulley which is fastened with 3 small screws. (Note! This bearing doesn't need greasing 'cause it's only there for support!)

Once cleaned out insert the tiniest little amount of Singer-Oil (Sowing Machine Oil) into the LOWER bearing. and put it back over the motor shaft. Screw the bearing back on. Make sure the screws are not too tight as, once again you may damage the heads. There! You just re-greased your turntable motor!

Next: If the speed selector lever is hard to move. Apply a small dab of vaseline onto the frame right next to the lever. Gently move it to and fro a few times and that's that.

- Spindle Bus:

This is somewhat more risky because this is practically what makes the turntable! The spindle was inserted in the factory by pressure, oil first, spindle second, forcing all the air out, leaving a film of oil around the spindle-shaft..

- Locate the cast-iron spindle-bus. Almost on top there you'll see a screw somewhere (again sealed with the red shellac)

- Gently try to loosen it. AGAIN: Do NOT use excessive force!
After unscrewing keep it safe.

- Turn the upside down frame over again to its normal position.

- Gently try to lift the spindle out of its bus.
DON'T YANK IT as this piece of stainless steel was crafted with extremely high precision! Then again, the vacuum won't let ya, heheh.

- Degrease with a non-pilling cloth or tissue drenched in thinner/ pure alcohol. Use a pencil and non-pilling cloth to clean out and degrease the spindle bus. Never use tissues as these may tear leaving residue in the spindle bus which decreases performance!

- Now poor some Singer-Oil onto the spindle and a small drop in the spindle-bus. Slowly rotate it between your fingers so the oil can distribute itself all over the spindle.

-Put the spindle back in its bus and let it sink in under its own weight (Get some coffee. Watch the Superbowl, Take a vacation, cause this may take a while!) DO NOT force it in as you may damage either the bus or the spindle!

- Make sure the idler wheel is smooth and round! Run your fingers along the inside of the platter to see if there's any residual rubber left behind. If so, you're gonna need a new wheel sometime soon. If not, congrats! Make sure the idler wheel is free from grease, oil dust and dirt and that it runs smooth! Make sure the inside of the platter is also free from dust, dirt, grease or oil to obtain maximum grip or friction.

- Join turntable back together with spindle and give it a soft spin. (Oil warms up inside spindle bus)

Plug in the AC...

Happy spinning at the right speed! :o)

Do on thing Oppen the Turntable and replace the 5 electrolytic capacitor ( 330mfd 16V,3.3Mfd 25V, two 2.2mfd 25V and 47mfd25v )in the circuit board. Also try to replace the 2 Vriable resistor ( 2K and 5K) in the circuit board of which one is for setting the speed of 33.33 and another for 45 rpm.

My turn table is going to fast when i play an record , what can i do to fix this? thanks


Hello the turn table has two speeds. 45rpm and 33rpm (rotations per minute) If you are playing a record that takes up the entire turntable you need to set it on 33rpm. For the records that only take up half of the turntable you want to set it on 45rpm. Setting the turntable on the wrong setting for a certain size record can make the record play to fast of to slow.

I suspect that a fault has occured on the section that controls the speed of the motor. Perhaps an IC failure. If you have a look at any of the IC's on the motor board you could note down the numbers and look around on the net to see if they might give you clues to what they do, plus what they cost to replace or if they are obselete.

These older type turntables are all mechanical. The selector has either broken, bent or stuck with grease.

It's very simple. Next to the "tone arm" (the thing you pull across towards your vinyl, and place down to produce sound) is a silver piece which you slide up and down to change the pitch (the speed) of the vinyl. This can be increased even further by changing the 35rpm setting (button near the start/stop button) to 45rpm.

Hope that helps

How do I set up a record for 45 speed?


You place it over the turntable spindle if you need to use it. Many 45s have a standard 6mm spindle hole so you do not need to.
