You have a read out, or a write in problem.
Either the selections are not being written to the memory, or they are not being read by the scanning mechanism.

You'll have to determine which situation you have, which can be difficult for a novice. "Seeburg won't pick up" is the most common problem because it's either a "write in" or "read out" issue. Various tests are too complicated to explain via this forum.
Might be time to bring in a professional.
Also, be sure if you have service done, the guy gives the machine a good lubrication.

Hi,

Check out the tormat on your jukebox. It runs almost the full length of the mechanism. On the tormat is the A and B side contacts and a ground rail. You will see that on the mechanism is a arm that runs over these contacts on it it has very fine wire links (similar to those on motor brushes) these can become disconnected and may require being resolderd back into place.

I have a Seeburg Select-O-Matic jukebox, model M1000, doesnt scan or move only spins, what could be the problem?It doesn't pick up the record or move at all, just spins.


I think you mean a Seeburg M100C
This is known as the "sit and spin" The main clutch is not shifting properly. This is a lubrication issue. the old grease has become glue like and is gumming everything up. The main clutch is located between the record rack and the record mechanism. Spray the s**t out of it with WD40 you may have to let it soak over night or take the record rack off. Don't remove it unless you have to. make sure that you blast that clutch (see pi of clutch) The thing at the thumb needs to move up and down freely. it work on gravity!!!

DO NOT REMOVE THE CLUTCH AS PICTURED
Remember you will need to spray through the record rack to get at it, so you will need a good flashlight to see it.

Make sure that the trip lever is not sticking. the can be gotten to easily. 24614542-gg2ae1cwkykr1dpptmtggk30-2-2.jpg
These pic may look slightly different from your C but the mech is basically the same. The trip lever in the pic is at rest. yours is likely up at an angle. Try raising it up or down after spraying.\

Once you get it moving again make sure you oil the piont with liquid bearings or other quality oil. Because WD40 will not keep it going it will gum up again if you don't oil. Do not over oil. it has a way of getting between contact that it's not supposed to. AND keep using it every day for a while.

Seeburg AY160 scans twice wont pick up record


If it still wont select, check the pulse amplifier. It plugs into the selection receiver chassis and has the RCA plug on the top. Open it up and change the capacitor(s) and there is a high value resistor in there as well CHANGE IT! It is commonly bad. Also check the tube, and replace it if it;s ? or weak.

My question is about the seeburg SPS-160 Juke Box


There is a "service switch" (bypass) that is mounted in the upper left corner (inside) of the title board (lid). It is designed to be moved in the run position when the lid is closed. If yours is still there it may be causing trouble since you moved it. This switch is often removed and covered in a ball of electrical tape and is laying in the bottom of the machine. The operators did this because the switch would frequently fail.

Troubleshooting Proceedure for this problem

1) Power off the jukebox.
2) Check the black RCA cable that plugs into the DCC (digital control center) this is labeled "Tormat" Just unplug it and plug it back in. There might be 2 more RCA connectors on the side of the mechanism control box (several black switches) Just unplug them and plug them back in. Make sure they ALL make really good connection and are tight. This cable carries the selection signal to the boxes.

3) Unplug the black and gray boxes. Examine these plugs for damage or corrosion and plug them back in again. Make sure that you check the little wire with the bullet plug located between the two plugs for the gray box.

4) After everything is back in place, power on the jukebox and see if it selects. If no result (continue)

5) On the side edge of the DCC there is a plastic cover that has test points under it. These voltages will need to be checked with a volt meter. With the power ON, touch the BLACK meter lead to the chassis (metal) and touch the RED lead to each of the screws ONE AT A TIME, be careful not to touch 2 or more of them together. Main concern is +27v, -27v, & 13v . Voltages can be + or - 2 volts.
If voltages are missing the power supply board in the DCC needs to be looked at.

If you are within 100 miles of Lancaster PA and would like a reasonably priced service call, Please call me (Ed Gardner) at (717) 333-6933 c0faecbb-5797-469a-8f9b-dea92f024201.jpg

Hi' I have just got a rowe ami r-83 disco jukebox. All is ffine apart from when you select say 120, it picks up and plays 168. Any ideas. Regards Chris


you need to check the Home signal to make sure the opto is activated at position 99. When the unit powers up the mechanism scans one complete cycle so it re-indexes the computer and starts scanning from position 00. If you want a quick test, turn the power off and scan the carousel to position 99 by releasing the latch on the left side of the mech just under and behind the mechanism motor. then power up the unit and it should pick the right selection. You can also observe the optic indicators on the mechanism control board under the turntable. The Home signal only operates at 99, the Index pulses between each record as it scans. Good Luck

Seeburg AY160 Spins as if record in place. will not reject.


Try removing the mechanism cover (power off). Turn it back on and try lifting the manual trip lever just to the right of the tonearm. This will cycle the mechanism. If it cycles but still won't engage and scan down the track, your clutch is stuck from lack of lubrication. Consult the manual, which you need to have. Try eBay - several people seel good reprints.
This is a common Seeburg problem and can sometimes be fixed IF you can get some oil into the clutch. Otherwise, you'll need to take the clutch tower off and that's best left to someone with experience.
IF you want to attempt it, you MUST have the manual as you'll have to set up and re do a bunch of adjustments after taking so much apart.

Wailing sound when 1971 seeburg juke box is started


I amnot very familiar with Seeburgs but the trip switch activates at the end of the record playing and THAT mutes the amp. The amp should also be muted until the tone arm lands on the record. So I would suggest the problem is in the amp.
