Hi my name is***** will be glad to help. Check the bolts around the perimeter of the turn table bearing/gear for looseness. Tighten the bolts. If the looseness is the bearing itself then the machine needs to be split for the bearing to be replaced. Check by having someone observe while putting down pressure with the bucket on the ground to watch for movement. Let me know

Elmer, Did you read my answer? Replace the turn table swing gear. It is junk.

The upper car body of your machine needs to be separated from the track frame, the track frame slid out from under and the swing truntable gear replaced and the swing cavity filled with new grease.
