Question about Seth Thomas Pacconi Turntable
I have looked online and found that replacing the motor and belt don't help. It is running just slightly too slow. I opened up the bottom of the record player and searched for a "white dial" that people described in blogs, but I think they were referring to a slightly different model than mine. Hoping to find some guidance. Thanks, Levi
Try changing the needle which runs on the record this is to do with clarity , makes a big difference and you get many types of needles

Had the same problem & checked around on the net. Several people tried replacing the belt, but it had no effect. Spoke w/ several repair shops around the country and they concur with what I'd read on the net - bad motors. 3 or 4 repair/supply shops told me getting a motor would be impossible. Since I only listen to 33-1/3 LP's, I messed around w/ it a little and found a solution. Take the turntable out of the unit & you will find a small circuit board attached to the bottom. On that board is a small square blue fixture w/ a white circular "dial" in the middle (has grooves to accept a small straight blade or a phillips screw driver). This controls the voltage to the motor, which in turn controls the motor RPM's. If you set the selector switch to 78, you can experiment /w turning that white circular "dial" to slow the motor down. It isn't very hard to get the speed set properly. The down side is that you will only be able to play 33-1/3 LP's, but they are probably the most common anyways. I assume you could do the same to set the speed for a 45, rather than a 33-1/3. Down side is that you will only be able to play 1 size LP on the 78 speed setting, but it's an easy adjustment that can keep an otherwise in-op turntable functioning. Good luck!
