Lubrication issue. Use some light oil (NOT 3 in 1 household - it has paraffin and will eventually clog up the parts) on all of the arms moving parts.
Be sure to get in between the gears and the moving cylinders that clamp the record.
This should resolve it. Rock Olas are known for this issue. The original grease dries up, and people neglect to lubricate their jukeboxes, even though, like a car, they are machines that require it from time to time.

Rockola 454 doesn't return gripper arm

Did the circuit breaker blow for the mechanism? The 454 might still use fuses in the circuit so check the mech fuse if that is the case. If blown then most likely you need to have the gripper motor looked at and the mech completely lubed. If the fuse(or breaker) is not blown then you have a micro switch problem on the cam arm. Open the back door( push down the spring clips from the inside) and you will see the micro switches, they rarely go bad but it does happen.

Records (45's) are sporatically not being picked up by the return

This is either caused by a need for adjustment or a lack of lubrication over a period of time. Please email me for my phone number so I can help you over the phone, Rod,

Record Changer Arm

When the carousel reaches the correct count, the computer sends a signal to the gripper motor to start it. You could have a bad motor or a bad computer. But!....if the little switch at the front of the machine is in the off position (Gripper motor On/Off) that will give exactly the same effect. It's easy to knock Off when you are loading CDs.
