turntable motor noise!


2007-02-15 1:41 am

i wonder if anyone can advise me? i have recently acquired a garrard gt35, which i know is not the greatest of turntables ever made, but it is slightly better than my budget nad 5120. the only thing wrong with it is that after about 5 minutes the motor starts to make a fairly loud buzzing noise. it is loud enough to disturb my listening experience. is there anything that i can do about it? i must make clear that this is not a grounding issue, the noise is coming from the motor itself. thanks in advance for any advice!
