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.

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!!!

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.

I have a LPC 480 Seeburg Jukebox that scans, pick up the record, the needle touches the record, then returns the record to the carriage without playing. What can I do?

Try reading this, basically the fault can be in the mech, the amp or trip switches.

Can weak tube be cause of jukebox not picking up records

1> be sure the service switch is in the PLAY position.
2> It's impossible to determine if the selections are not being written in to memory, or read out from the memory. it could be either.
You most likely have to have the control center looked at, common with a machine this old. The capacitors in your control unit on the back door have probably gone bad, which they do after 25-40 years. Your jukebox is from 1960, so it's time to have both the amplifier and control unit rebuilt. Not what you wanted to hear, but it has to be done. If you're handy and can solder and read a schematic, you can buy the kits on eBay or do a Google search for Bill Bickers or Vern Tisdale. Both sell the rebuild kits.(Feb 27, 2010)

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.

Seeburg b 100 jukebox carrier will not move to pick up records

Inside the control center is a solenoid that's connected to some switches. These activate the mechanism to start scanning when a selection is made. You'll have to check that. Could be dirty or need lubrication. The do get sticky after years.
Don't lubricate the plunger, just he other small parts on the switch unit with some light Teflon lube, TRI-FLOW, any hardware store for about $4.
Whatever controls this solenoid might not be working, also. It should activate every time a selection is made, and deactivate after 2 scans of the mechanism.

Your juke is 58+ years old now, so it might be time to have some maintenance done if you're not comfortable tinkering with the innards. Be sure it gets a lube job, too. At least the oil cups on the side of the motor at the very least.
