I have a Royal Phono and the springs are clogged. The Phono keeps slowing and then the spring will jump making it play faster. Then do it again and again..
How do I re lube? Do I have to remove the springs?
What do you guys use to lube?

I looked online but did not really know what to look up.
Thanks for any suggestions.

There should be a ton of info on this right here. And just as many opinions!

See the sample search query below:

I am a firm believer that the springs should be removed and cleaned. You can inspect them for damage at that time. If you don't clean them, you will probably find yourself asking more questions about why it won't work well.

As Dave states, removal and cleaning is the very best way to go.

Check out this series: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6R9i7zp-v9s

After watching that you should be able to tackle the job.
