Question about Aiwa PX-E860 Turntable
The liely cause of the slow speed problem is the belt. Your turntable is belt driven, like components in your car's engine compartment. As the belt ages, it can begin to slip. Replacement of the belt will probably restore the speed once again. The PX-E860 turntable has been discontinued. There are parts, such as the belt, that are still available. How much longer these parts will be available for remains unknown. If you like the the turntable, you should consider purchasing several belts as the next time you need one, they may not be available or may cost much more.
One source for replacement belts (there may be many others, ie: eBay):
You might also need a manual to direct you as to how to go about changing the belt. The manual is a free (after registering) download below:

SOURCE: My LPDock turntable is surging
There are two possible causes, depending on if the deck is belt driven or direct driven. Sorry I don't know which with yours.
If it's a belt drive then the belt has come lose and should be replaced. Or the motor or power supply to the motor is faulty. Make a note of how the belt fits before you replace it.
With a direct drive it's either the motor or power supply to it that's got the fault.

I have just fixed this problem on my Aiwa PX3800 with improvisation.
The platter was rotating too slowly, I didn't know how much too slow only that the records sounded wrong.
I imagined the belt, motor and platter as a bicycle gear and so simply increased the gear... I achieved this by winding a thin strip of a electrical insulation tape around the motor head to increase it's radius (like changing up to a larger front cog on a bicycle gear).
I could then time the rotations and remove a layer or two of the tape accordingly until I have achieved a perfect 45rpm. 33 is still way out but I only listen to 45s!
Be sure to trim excess tape from the motor head with a craft knife/scalpel or it'll stick to the platter.
Poor man fix up.
