I am playing my 33/45 record at the right speed, but it sounds kind of slow/fast still. Can I adjust the speed?

Yes, on the bottom of the turntable there are screw-hole speed adjustments to fine tune the speed.  To adjust it, use a small eye-glass screwdriver to very slightly turn the appropriate screw to increase or decrease the speed.  For the 33/45 RPM adjustment, it is recommended to use a phillips-head screwdriver.  For the 78 RPM adjustment, it is recommended to use a flat-head.

Why does my turntable move when I push on it?

This is normal!  The turntable mechanism base, platter & tonearm are engineered to float above the wood platform on isolation mountings to allow you to play music through the built-in speakers without feedback.
