You have probably done this, but I had same problem on one I was given with no manual. I couldn't get the turn table to turn and by accident I move the arm to the right, away from record and it began turning. Hope that helps.

SOURCE: vintage turntable turns slow for few minutes then speeds up,,,why

The tubes are only in the audio amp portion of the stereo, and have nothing to do with the motor that turns the turntable.

Most likely it's that the grease on the motor is old and gummy, but becomes less viscous when it warms up.

SOURCE: HMV Radiogram Turntable run slow at the start,

you should check under the table.
if it's a roller drive there, you can use water to clean the roller rubber and the inside edge of the platter.

If it's a belt drive, take it out and measure the length and get a replacement belt of same length

Can i use a crosley stylus in my detrola km837 record player


Stylus will only fit into certain cartridges. You have two options here. You can look up the cartridge number and make on your Detrola. It should be on the cartridge somewhere. Then search for the stylus. Or you can remove the Detrola cartridge and fit a new cartridge and stylus. As long as the cartridge will fit into the arm of your deck, plus it's the right type - ie: magnetic if the old cartridge was magnetic! Or ceramic - again if the old cartridge was...
Then you can use any make or model cartridge you want. As the quality of the sound can be improved - albeit paying more money for it - by having a good quality cartridge and stylus, it might be best in the long run to change the cartridge.

How to fix flutter & wow on a Gemini 500 XLii direct drive turntable


Direct drive turntables have electronically controlled speed. If the records you are playing are warped (not flat) that will cause wow & flutter. If that's not the problem then you might try connecting the turntable to a different power outlet using a long extension cord. Failing that, the turntable needs repair.

Lots of Turntable belts are very much universal. If they are the same size there's no reason to think it won't work on another make.

Detrola record player wont spin, even after moving arm to far right.


I suggest you lift up the turntable matt and see if you can see a belt, which has either broke or come off. You might need a new belt!
