I have a rockola 444. The record wheel rotates continuously. but the selector arm never selects a record. What might be the problem? Thanks,

When you select a record the turntable motor is energized and the big wheel that holds the records should start turning...does that happen?

My Rockola Tempo 1, just stopped mid record. Previously the carousel would slow down/hesitate at a certain point when selecting, but never stopped. Switched it on occasionally, with no movement.

I would put money on the belt snapping. 5 years is about right. Especially if you do not use it often. The slow down and hesitate is even more indication of a belt getting hard and then slipping and snapping. They need to keep moving to stay soft. Get a new belt and you will be likely good to go.

How do I adjust the record speed on a rockola juke box

Check the turntable rubber grommets first, these when worn or perished will give a rumbling sound through the speakers but will also change the speed as they will allow the motor to drop down which will use the other size on the motor shaft

Rockola 464 jukebox. arm that holds needle will not move over to record

The turntable will need to be removed, the pladder should be taken off with the c clip to inspect the gears, I would not be surprised if the grease has gone hard and is interfering with the cycle. Flip the turntable over to check for any restrictions. If it is a grease issue the old must be removed before applying new. Please keep me posted on your progress and if I can be of further service don't hesitate to ask.
