The problem is a resistor that isn't regulating the voltage/power to the unit, so it spins out of control when it heats up. Usually R213 is the culprit, but you may have to check other resistors. Sometimes IC201 will short out because of this. It is repairable, however, I would suggest taking it to an authorized service center for help, as it requires testing the various drive circuits on the main board.

Some times static charge fomr your hands or other things make this happen...don't touch the pole in the middle while speeding it up or slowing it down...if you mixing tracks...either shove the record or touch the edge of the platter...touching the pole send statis from your hands down the pole to the motor and it just takes off...I have been djing for ten years and in the begining it happend to me...
