It seems something may have come loose over time or history, but you will have to delve inside to see what it is. It sounds as though the fault should be obvious.
If you do not want to do this, a repair shop should have no problem. I assume that the deck is working ok otherwise.

i used to own one of these? had it for 28 years and it was brilliant but temperamental during use. it sounds like your direct drive motor has given up the ghost ............so to speak? its unlikely you will be able to purchase a replacement due to its age? if you in the market for a classic retro quality replacement try this company?

Check for grease on the platter or anywhere in the mechanism. Sometimes somebody has messed around with the speed preset, there might be two. You could try adjusting them. Sometimes they are found on the underside of the turntable, covered up, or they will be on the PC board of the deck.

Have you though of using a pre-amp? You'll probably need to go turntable --> pre-amp --> soundcard input to get acceptable sound

i tried to adjust it and it must have messed up the connection like vinylfan said, the motor wont shut off. then i took off the bottom (again, i did before reading this) and tried checking out how the connection works. i adjusted it in a hand full of different ways with the connection fully touching and bearly touching at all and i cant get the motor to stop still.
