Question about NAD 533 Turntable
Are you sure it is a belt drive, I would have thought that it might be a direct drive. Let's assume that it is a belt drive first. Belts should not stretch in such a short period, so try clean the belt. Be sure to use only something like isopropel alcohol, most other solvents will have a detrimental affect on the rubber. Make sure that the spindle from the motor is clean and not to polished so that it has some grip on the belt. Also wipe the drive flange on the underside of the platen with the alcohol. Clean the platen shaft with a solvent and lightly grease it with a light grease, a light oil will also do. Re-assemble the turntable and try if that helped.
If it is a direct drive, there is nothing that you can really do except to strip it and lubricate the center shaft, and that will most likely have to be done from the underside. I doubt if the platen will come off from the top.
It is highly unlikely that it will be a stepped friction drive, those were used on cheaper older models, but the solution there is to make sure that the wheels are clean and soft and showing grip on the rubbing sides. Once again the alcohol will help.
