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

Jukebox was working fine, then did not pick up some selections, now carrier will not do anything. carrier will move with manual switch but that is it. cleaned all contacts several times to no avail. talked to a jukebox repairman and he said a tube is probably the problem, very rarely do contacts go bad. A 2050 tube is the only tube that I see controls some of the contacts, don't know what the problem could be, would appreciate any help what might be the problem.

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.

This is a free help response, for help on a SEEBURG JUKEBOX, that does not scan.
(1) Is there a 45 rpm record in the head that has not been rejected. (the meck will not scan.
(2) does the motor drive shaft turn?. Or is the drive shaft frozen? (Lack of lubrication)
(3) are ALL the little pins below PIN BANK push together, or is one or more moved to out side.
(scanning should happen if selection pins are moved out.)
That enough for now.

How do you lubricate a Seeburg Select-O-Matic juke box?


I like to use liquid bearings. the bottle comes with a long needle so it reaches easily to the areas, and you can get the lube exactly where you need it. Any thin machine oil is fine. Seeburg used to make sewing machines so sewing machine oil work great. Here is a mech chart.
bad1ac26-e94f-4cef-9804-b939bc5298c4.jpg

OK This chart will be useless because it appears to be way too small.
If you email me with your model I can send you a PDF for the model you have.

50's & 60's Seeburg's may require credit & stepper unit lubrication also.

If it's pulling the same record in and out repeatedly or is just doing the sit and spin thing, you will have to use WD-40 to wash out all of the old grease and it may have to be partial disassembled in order to move and clean parts that are gummed up, by hand.

If you live with in 100 miles of Lancaster PA and would like a reasonably priced service call please call me (717)333-6933

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!!!
24614542-gg2ae1cwkykr1dpptmtggk30-2-0.jpg

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.

Jukebox problems


If you can't find a scan button to move the carriage then select a number at the other end of the rack so you can fill it

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.

I have a 1963 seeburg jukebox. the motor runs and turntable goes around normally. but it wont pick up the record. i think its the cam. help thanks


Your Seeburg LPC1 or LPC480 is well overdue for an electrical overhaul.
It most likely can no longer write selections into the memory, or read them out if they're being written in. No way to tell from here. A jukebox that old probably needs to have the units underneath rebuilt with new capacitors. Their lifespan is usually about 25 years, so no surprises there. This is common for all old jukeboxes. Google Vern Tisdale or Bill Bickers for the rebuild kits. You need to solder and read a schematic to do the work, or find someone who can, but the actual parts are not all that expensive.

Mechanism will not pick up records


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.
