Pro-ject Essential 2 - Motor making a knocking sound

Post by banerjba » 22 Apr 2019 15:11

My 5 year old Pro-ject Essential 2 has an issue that is intermittent.

The unit plays well but the motor makes an intermittent knocking sound. I added a bit of machine oil so it is not dry.

Not sure if the wall wart is starting to go south (I live in Toronto Canada).

This turntable and my 2008 Debut are my favourite tables of all time so really hope this issue is repairable.

Would appreciate any guidance.
