This is a drive issue. You will need to have it professionally serviced, as there are many issues which may affect the drive of this unit. FYI, there is no 'motor' in a direct drive turntable. It is driven by various circuits on a circuit board, and if any one of them goes bad, your drive will be affected. The issue could also be a faulty pitch control as well.

How do I fix a turntable used for playing records from being slightly slow


Try replacing the drive belt. Look under the platter for a 'rubber band' that would connect the platter to a drive motor. I bet it's loose. My other idea is crazy, however, they do sell an item called a "variac" which has a knob to control the voltage to the player. It's big and bulky and not worth the trouble. I'm a musician so I have to have a player up to speed or slightly detune my guitar. Good luck..

Motor surge at constant driving speed


Acceleration is defined as a change in speed, either a negative acceleration (slowing down) or a positive acceleration (speeding up). If you have constant speed, you are not accelerating.---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Yorx turntable speed issue, And turntable is warped.


You may be experiencing Acoustic Feedback, although it doesn't really make any sense the way you describe it. Make sure the tonearm is balanced and the proper weight is dialed in on same. Does it make any difference if the volume or bass are turned down, which my point to the Acoustic Feedback.

My records that are 33 and 1/3 don't play at that speed on my turntable. they sound more like a 30 speed, what do I do


Hello Rosie,

Some turntables have a pitch adjustment feature which allows you to speed up or slow down your records. The adjustment controller is usually a slider or a wheel somewhere on the turntable and is usually labelled "Pitch" "Adjust / Adj" or "Pitch Adj".

Please check for this feature on your turntable then get back to me if you are unable to find it. Please include the brand and model number of your turntable.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
BElectric

Radiator fan wont run at high speed


do you mean high engine speed or fan speed.
if fan speed is slow then motor in the fan is getting bad.
if your talking about running engine, then could be nothing because the sensor tell it not to..like running down the road it cools the car down and engine temp drops slightly enough to cut sensor off.

I have a Sherwood PD - 913 R and the pitch seems to be spinning out of sync which makes the RPM"s not right for 33 or 45 speeds, any help on what could be the cause is appreciated. There is a pitch...


The turntable motor might be the problem, if the grease is old it becomes hard causing the turntable to run slow, by your description we can rule that out since you indicate it runs to fast. therefore it is the voltage that powers the motor with a regulator "keeps voltage constant" or the motor itself will be the problem. The pitch control allows a small change in speed when required.

My computers cooling fan keeps speeding up and slowing down is that a good thing or a bad thing


I'm assuming your desktop has an AMD processor?
AMD have a process called "quiet and cool" this basically speeds up the fan when the processor is under load and getting hot or slows it down when the processor isn't working as hard.

If it's slightly faster than normal, that's fine. You'll just need to check the rollers and tighten them slightly as well. They might be loose or sort of that.
