Problem might be the 33 switch. If it's gone bad, it will cause this kind of problem. The issue is not the motor. Possibly one of the capacitors or resistors might have gone bad. Not easy to determine without the proper tools and a service manual.

Possible that the motor is working with a different speed. It can be fault in the drive, fault in the mechanism.
What is required is the need to remove the TOP plate and look to see the drive of the motor. If there is slipping of the drive it can result in higher speed. If so it can be aligned and corrected.
Pjam, Had the same problem & checked around on the net. Several people tried replacing the belt, but it had no effect. Spoke w/ several repair shops around the country and they concur with what I'd read on the net - bad motors. 3 or 4 repair/supply shops told me getting a motor would be impossible. Since I only listen to 33-1/3 LP's, I messed around w/ it a little and found a solution. Take the turntable out of the unit & you will find a small circuit board attached to the bottom. On that board is a small square blue fixture w/ a white circular "dial" in the middle (has grooves to accept a small straight blade or a phillips screw driver). This controls the voltage to the motor, which in turn controls the motor RPM's. If you set the selector switch to 78, you can experiment /w turning that white circular "dial" to slow the motor down. It isn't very hard to get the speed set properly. The down side is that you will only be able to play 33-1/3 LP's, but they are probably the most common anyways. I assume you could do the same to set the speed for a 45, rather than a 33-1/3. Down side is that you will only be able to play 1 size LP on the 78 speed setting, but it's an easy adjustment that can keep an otherwise in-op turntable functioning. Good luck!
Look under the platter or on the bottom of the turntable. There should be two adjustment holes for 45 and 33. You will need a small screwdriver for adjusting these. If this does not work clean the control pots with spray cleaner.
There a few things which can cause this problem. First the speed change switch may be faulty or contaminated by dirt/dust. If I were looking at this deck I would spray some Servisol switch cleaner into the switch (you may have to remove the base of the deck to do it).
There should also be two variable pots which are used to set each speed - spray those as well - it may be a "dead spot" on the pot itself. These are the most obvious causes but if the problem still persists check the belt. If that is OK, then you may have a fault in the speed control circuit.
I don't know if this model is direct driven or by belt. If it's belt driven then the belt could be fitted incorrectly, or faulty. Another possibilty is that there's a fault in the motor control circuit.
I have just posted a cure for this deck, it is to do with the microswitches under the speed select buttons - they need to be replaced. Just repaired mine today - now there are no more problems selecting speeds.
If the speed goes back to 33 when the deck is switched off, this is because 33 is the default.
ALL THE BEST!
You have drive issues. There is no easy way to fix or to isolate the problem. You'll have to take it to a service technician who can test your unit, and fix the problem. Usually it's one of the 3 main IC (integrated circuits) which cause this problem.
