Try pulling the subplatter out and cleaning it and replacing the oil. It may have just gotten a little gummy while sitting.

The spindle and bearing have a low clearance, when I try to remove the subplatter (spindle), a vacuum "spring" is created and the plinth assembly is just about lifed. I was reluctant to pull harder, not sure how i would get the thing back together. (ie, bleed the air out)
I did find the plastic pully on the spindle of the drive motor had began to slip. What ever adheasive was used at the factory was giving way, sorta like a clutch slipping at the end of it's life. Alittle Krazy Glue, and I'm back in the game.
I think the table deserves more service, if nothing else, to easy my AR mind.
Have you dis-assembled a bearing/spindle and re-assembed without issue? I think new lube just makes sense, if I can get the thing back together. Thanks!
