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.

Are you sure you mean 556? Sounds an odd model to me. The model number is on a black metal plate the size of a credit card on the back of the jukebox (usually).
Manuals can be found at (USA) and The Jukebox Man in the UK.

SOURCE: Wurlitzer 3600 series wont select a record ?

If the buttons don't latch in, the machine is not in credit. Put on free play or put some money in.

There is a sensor which detects the start position of the carousel and if it isnt working it goes round forever. (Although I am not very familiar with this box)

The problem could be the selection and credit computer or possibly the K7 switch actuator. I can repair the computer and I stock the K7 switch actuator. Please email

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.

Rock o la jukebox wont pick up record to play

I actually have the answer to your problem, there are 3 things, if you make a selection and it goes to it but wont grab it, that means the gripper motor is bad.

If your carousel keeps spinning I think its like the wurlitzers, your index light or orbital reader bulb is bad, 2 names but same bulb, depends on who your talking too,

and the last thing it might be is yes your safety switch, happens when someone grabs the arm it can be moved and then your dead in the water, the cd models also have an on & off swtich so check that too. Hope it helps

45's records won't turn and prior to that they only played side B

There's a motor under the back of the carousel about 11 oclock. You can see the drive gear if you bend down and look under the toothed base of the carousel. If you press the lever to rotate the carousel you'll be able to see if the motor is turning or not. If it is turning but the carousel isn't moving you could have a stripped nylon gear.

Check the optical sensor, it may be blocked with dust.
