Same key that operates the locks on the sides unlocks the top, but top might be sticky. Push down on it.
Order keys if you don't have them. It's key F291. GOOD locksmith can make it or order one off eBay.
Your jukebox is a USC2. Use that model number as a reference.
Keypad "0" contacts are probably dirty or broken, or the connectors to the keyboard or black and gray boxes might be loose or need cleaning. Circuit board might be dirty (YES! This is a common Seeburg issue). To clean it of check for broken contacts on the "0" key, you'll have to remove it and open it up. Putting it back together can be tricky. Be patient.
Worst case, you can install a replacement keyboard.

If you have someone come out, be SURE to have them give the jukebox a good lubrication. Seeburgs are complicated machines and need periodic lubrication.

Also, buy a manual. Jukebox repairmen don't usually have the manuals for your jukebox. Too many.

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.

THESE MANUALS ARE FOR PROFESSIONAL REPAIRMEN. YOU WILL NOT UNDER STAND THE LINGO. THE PROBLEM IS ON THE TORMAT UNIT. THERE ARE 4 WIRES ON THE BOTTOM OF THAT TORMAT UNIT. (FIRST POSSIBILITY) ONE OF THE FOUR HAS COME LOOSE. THE COLOR OF THESE WIRES ARE RED==GREEN== , AND TWO BLACK. MOVE WITH A LITE TOUCH. TO SEE WHAT ONE IS BROKEN. (SECOND POSSIBILITY) THE SAME WIRES GO TO THE REVERSING SWITCH. MOVE THESE WIRES WITH A LIGHT TOUCH.

I have a 1968 Seeburg Ls2 jukebox,and I think the main fuse in the junction box is blown.I can push down on top of the fuse holder but cannot get the fuse out.Is anyone familiar with this jukebox?


In addition to pushing down on the fuse cap, you will need to also twist IE unscrew the cap about one quarter turn. the cap will then pull out and have the fuse stuck in the end of the cap. Check it with a meter set for continuity.

If the fuse remains in the the hole and not in the cap, you can use a magnet to help extract the fuse.

Yes, I'm familiar with Seeburg's, but nothing is a very big symptom. if the main fuse is blown, try another fuse of the CORRECT value. if it blows again, you have a short, (Capacitor, transformer perhaps)

Seeburg jukebox ay160 won't select record


(1) Make sure that the credit unit is not stuck and that all of the contacts open and close correctly while manually operating the solenoids. Lubricate it if the wheel does not turn freely. (2) Make sure that there are credits on the machine. (3) If it still wont select check fuses or (4) try pressing the letter and the number simultaneously, some "free play" set ups will work this way.

Seeburg selectomatic 200 [has been stored in garage for 30 years ] all funtions work properly except it will only play record for about 1 second, then eject & go to next selected record & play for...


1. Check to see that the end of record switch is OK or not shorted, same with the reject button on the back and all associated connections.
2. THESE THINGS NEED OIL! The trip lever (just to the right of the tonearm) may not be resetting fast enough, or at all, due to gummy grease. Buy the manual (eBay - any service man will insist that you have it.). It will show you where to lubricate everything. NO 3-in-1 or paraffin based oils.

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.

I have a 1972 Seeburg that misses plays, rejects plays before they are done and will go all the way to the right and thinks it has picked up a record and get stuck there. Thanks in advance! David


Possible causes.
_Black and gray box connections are probably dirty.
_Keypad circuit board dirty (yes, this makes the jukebox make incorrect selections)
_Mis-adjusted end-of-record switch.
_In addition, a manual would help so you can go over the adjustments section to check all those and then, on top of everything else, it probably needs a lube job.
Seeburgs are the most complicated of the 45 jukes, so it might be time to call in a professional if you're not comfortable tinkering.
You can screw one up pretty bad if you aren't familiar with them.
