All parts are discontinued for this model. The SL1200MK2 dust cover will not fit this turntable. You can actually have a dust cover made rather simply and cheaply (depending on where you live). Just take the dimensions to a PLEXIGLASS or even a GLASS shop. You can even purchase the Plexiglass yourself, cut it, and glue it together. I would suggest getting it professionally done. You can use any high impact plexiglass. Get something that is resistant to scratches and discoloring.

I can't guarantee anything, but look up and call Stereo Component Systems in Boston Ma. When I was there, they still had quite a bit of Thorens parts available.

Yes they can be replaced.
Contact the store you purchased it from or ask where they have repairs done. They should be able to order the parts for you.

There's either a lot of grease or something in the motor, or the motor control circuit has a fault on it. Try spraying the motor with Servisol Video 40 first. (available from Maplin UK or Radio Shack USA).

Leo J. Nesuahecner The bottom of the tone arm shaft has a white plastic cup with a single screw in it. You need to remove a large square plastic cover also with a single screw to access the cup. This cup has a magnet in it. As the arm rotates to the end of the record this magnet trips a switch that pops the solenoid under the start stop lever. By loosening the screw on the white cup you can rotate the cup so the magnet hits it's switch sooner or later . It is touchy so prepare to to spend time fiddling with it. There is a small pointer on the cup you can use to grab with your fingernail to rotate the cup counter or clockwise. Hardest part is standing the table on end and operating all functions with the left hand and rotating the cup to various positions. Remember to gently tighten the screw after each adjustment or it will move when the tone arm is moved.
