Seeburg 1959 220 model suddenly completely dead could it be a blown fuse

My 1960 Seeburg had a similar problem that turned out to be a blown tube. The amplifier does have at least one fuse. These are mounted on the front or top. Twist open the black plastic cap (pushing in as you twixt ccw), remove the fuse and test with an ohm meter. To test vacuum tubes, a good way to start is to look for a cool one if the others light up.

Hello , I have a 1971 seeburg jukebox that has several problems. Any info. or tips would be great. 1.It has been set to free play, so no money is required. When you select a song number you can hear it...

You could have blown main lower speakers, loose connection or bad caps or transistors on the power amp. it's hard to say without looking at it. Sme with the selecting problem, sounds like a problem with the tormat.

I have a Rowe R-89 jukebox. Even though the motor is turning on the turntable, the turntable is not moving. Should there be a washer on the turntable base to elevat it so it will turn?

Hello Robert,

You say you have a R-89 jukebox and the turntable motor is running, I assume that the pulley on the top of the motor is clearly seen turning. Is the turntable belt loose or missing?
From your message I am not sure that your jukebox is a R-89, could it be a 1978/1979 R-82 or R-83 that uses an idler wheel.
On this model the turntable motor is 110 volts AC.
If the above is true check that the idler wheel and the linkage spring is pulling the idler wheel against the turntable and the motor shaft.

Can weak tube be cause of jukebox not picking up records

1> be sure the service switch is in the PLAY position.
2> It's impossible to determine if the selections are not being written in to memory, or read out from the memory. it could be either.
You most likely have to have the control center looked at, common with a machine this old. The capacitors in your control unit on the back door have probably gone bad, which they do after 25-40 years. Your jukebox is from 1960, so it's time to have both the amplifier and control unit rebuilt. Not what you wanted to hear, but it has to be done. If you're handy and can solder and read a schematic, you can buy the kits on eBay or do a Google search for Bill Bickers or Vern Tisdale. Both sell the rebuild kits.(Feb 27, 2010)

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.

Seeburg AY160 Spins as if record in place. will not reject.

Try removing the mechanism cover (power off). Turn it back on and try lifting the manual trip lever just to the right of the tonearm. This will cycle the mechanism. If it cycles but still won't engage and scan down the track, your clutch is stuck from lack of lubrication. Consult the manual, which you need to have. Try eBay - several people seel good reprints.
This is a common Seeburg problem and can sometimes be fixed IF you can get some oil into the clutch. Otherwise, you'll need to take the clutch tower off and that's best left to someone with experience.
IF you want to attempt it, you MUST have the manual as you'll have to set up and re do a bunch of adjustments after taking so much apart.

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

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.
