Question about Teac SL-A100 Shelf System
The turntable plays records too fast - the record's pitch is noticeably higher than is normal.
I have seen this problem before. Lift the turntable off. It might be held down with a clip around the center pole. Under it you will see a wheel that contacts the turn table and the center shaft of the motor. The motor shaft has 3 0r 4 elevations with different diameters. When you change the speed the wheel will move up and down to different diameter levels on the motor shaft. It must be free to move. It might need some oil at the moving parts as I suspect it is not moving properly.
Hope this helps.

Mine was playing too fast. After exhausting all options, I found a solution that worked perfect. My motor shafts that powers the belt is thicker in the middle and thinner above and below. The belt would always seek out the thickest part, no matter how I adjusted it. It played faster on that thick part and slower on the thin part. I simply shaved down the thick part a little. It took a couple of times, having to put the belt on and off to test it. I would let the motor run & used a sharp screwdriver to shave the metal drive shaft/rod down. It plays perfect now.
