    Turntable spins too fast. All mechanisms (gears, belt, etc.) appear in good working order but the platten rotates too quickly producing an "Alvin and the Chipmunks" effect.

Turntable spinning to fast

Clearly an electrical fault. Could be something to do with the power supply or the speed control circuit, or even the motor itself.

Sounds like a speed sensor in the motor has opened up. You need a repair shop my friend.

My Thorens speed is off

1 sec is not all that fast.... with that said you can see if there is a control that you stick a small screw driver under the table or you may have to open it but there should be a variable pot to change speed and most likely if you adjust it it's going to be off more than just 1 sec
