You should ask Brinkmann or try to download a copy of the owners manual. It is certainly not conventional for the platter to need a push start, but some turntable makers, e.g., Nottingham, do openly state that the platter needs to be pushed. Nottingham tt's deliberately use a very weak motor. If that's the case for Brinkmann, they probably do not keep it a secret.
