Question about Technics SL-1210MK3 Turntable
Took turntable out of storage and occasionally the record speeds up for a moment then returns to normal.Need maintenance advise.
Your best bet is to get a good quality switch contact cleaner to clean all the contacts on the speed control switches.
I guess the contacts inside the switches will have corroded slightly with your turntable having been stored in the garage.

Since the SLQ-200 doesn't have speed potentiometers like most turntables, there likely won't be anyplace you can clean. It uses a quartz signal, much like a wristwatch, to determine the speed for the motor. I've read there are quartz sensor controls that go bad, much like can happen in a quartz watch, that need replacing, but I haven't yet found anywhere that would show where they are or what they look like to replace them.

I have the same problem with my Technics SL-Q200 turntable. I have the spray, but where do I spray it to correct the problem. Do I spray the whole mechanism of the speed selector switch or just the switch itself. Please inform. Thanks.
