Kenwood Micro Hi-Fi HM-535 tape deck stops running a couple

This answer was rated:

Kenwood Micro Hi-Fi HM-535 tape deck stops running a couple of seconds after 'start'. Have fast forwarded full length of tape in both directions, tried 'start' in both directions with same result of cutting out. Can I fix it?
Hi there,

This problem is not something that is easily fixed, because spare parts will be required and they are difficult to find.
The cause of this problem is usually a worn out or stiff motor that is not turning at the correct speed in normal Play mode, but is able to turn ok in fast fwd mode.
The motor will likely have to be replaced.
