Default Slowing Adcom motorized volume pot

Does anyone know if it's possible to slow the motor driving the volume potentiometer on an Adcom GCD-700 CD Player? If so, can you explain how?

Very difficult to achieve accurate volume levels with the remote because the potentiometer motor is just too fast. Nothing wrong with the remote.

Thanks for any help you might send my way.

Add two (or combinations of) diodes in series to the motor. Each single diode drops 0.6volts. Resistors are to dependant on the friction of the motor and will give inconsistant results
