Try lubricating motor bearings. VPI has it's own oil, but trivial pistol oil should be OK. If accessible, open and clean bearings and anchor first. You may want to use compressed air if you have such.

You can upgrade to the 600 RPM motor for $150. It is a good upgrade for not much money and will improve the sound. You can get one from Music Direct. Just make sure you have the right one for your turntable size. I use one on the old acrylic platter and think it it was a very good upgrade for not much money. Requires modest ability to put the new motor in the old housing.
