    My 1210 Mk5 wheel has started spinning a lot slower and generally not at a constant speed.
    Theres nothing stuck to it and I haven't left it on 33 rpm or anything.
    Any advice on what might be wrong or how to fix it would be very much appreciated. :y:

    Yeah the platter.

    I've just had a fiddle with it and noticed that it only starts to mess up when the pitch fader goes above 0%. When its in the middle or slower its fine but as soon as it goes any higher it start to warble and go really slow.

    humm im not sure mate, you can arrange a service and maybe they might know a bit more, but if the platter aint spinning that might be something to do with the magnet

    As it's fine at zero and below I'd go for changing the pitch fader first.
