i am new to this but am in the process of fixing up two BSR turntables. I have pulled both apart, cleaned and lubed every gear and mechanism, as well as pulling the motors apart and cleaning them. Both work well, however when it is time for the record to change, the turntable stops. It is like the motor does not have enough power to move the gears required for this. I spin the platter manually and everything works smoothly. Once the new record drops, the turntable works fine. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
Jim

Start by making sure the surface the idler rides on is clean, and free of oil. Same goes for the idler itself. If that doesn't help, (and if the motor is still turning while the platter stops) then that resurface is probably in order.

how are the rubber motor mounts? mounts that have compressed with age can cause issues like that. they are cheap to replace.
