My tt1625 after a hour of playing them , when i touch the record slightly the platter almost stops and then takes ages to return to speed . they are a year old and i have only had them for 3 days. please if you could help it would be much appreciated .
when you say ages to get back to speed how long is that exactly? even on my technics for cueing i give a slight throw to hit my cue points.
also your slip mat may be an issue. do not use the rubber mats use the soft nylon foam one that came with it only.

I find it hard to believe some of these answers. If the platter is wobbling, if you remove the platter, you'll find the spindle the platter rotates on. That will probably be loose. At the bottom of the spindle bearing, you will find a nut. Tighten that, and you should be in business. If you have further questions please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. You may contact me there.
Your belt is probably worn and needs replacing. Lift felt on platter and and lift the platter section off the unit by putting your thumb and forefinger through the two large holes and pull upwards.There should not be any special routing for the belt and should go directly onto the spindle motor to your platter. Place the belt around the inside rim of the platter while it is still off the unit. Now replace the platter and move the platter around until you see the spindle motor through one of the holes. Use some tweezers to manouvre the belt onto the spindle motor. On some units you will have to lay the belt out inside the unit, replace the platter and manouvre the belt onto the platter. Hope this helps
Is the platter itself moving up and down or the record? It could just be the record's wear and tear (warped) which raises the tone-arm which in turn makes it move up and down on certain sections of the record. Try bending the record (very very slightly) to straighten it out or put more weight on the tonearm.
These are direct drive turntables, so if your having speed issues, the problem is probably one of the drive circuits. Unfortunately, not an easy fix. So I suggest taking it to a service center for repair.
