This can be a nasty... I had one that did this. The cause was having put a bit of force on plastic tabs extending out the bottom panel.

These tabs pushed a part into a set of fins on the turret and broke two off. I had to reattach those as they go between a photo cell interrupter that counts and keeps track of where the turntable is. There is a single fin that registers the start and then it counts from there and looks to see if a disk is in the slot and remembers which slots are filled.

The normal intial cycle finds the single fin and then counts around to make the list of filled slots.

The turntable can be lifted out when the cover is removed and inspected for loss OR bending over of the fins. One can CAREFULLY glue bent ones back in place, making sure the glue doesn''t block mechanical movement.

    My player started doing this as well, there was no pressure whatsoever on the plastic tabs on the bottom panel causing the problem, when I opened the unit there were no loose broken off parts anywhere, I care fully lifted the turntable out and found no bent or missing fins, the unit is still having this problem any other ideas?

If anybody can help me please I need to know how to repair the carousel before the CD changer he does not spin thank you


Most of the carousels are driven by a small motor through a gear train, but some are belt driven. You would have to look underneath the carousel to determine what the mechanism is. If it's belt driven, make sure the belt isn't slipping. With the changer unplugged, find the carousel motor, then gently turn it by hand (make sure you are turning it in the correct direction) to check for excess friction, broken gears, jamming by a foreign object, or slipping. If you hit a hard stop while turning the motor DO NOT FORCE IT. Investigate the stop; it's probably your problem. Some changers rotate the motor in one direction to turn the carousel and in the other direction to clamp the CD in the spindle mechanism. If the spindle clamp is hung up, this will prevent the carousel from turning.

MR. CHRISTMAS CAROUSEL WON'T TURN


I realize this post is way old, but wanted to thank LtJim for his description on how to take it apart.

It turns out the reason mine was not spinning is that one of the plastic mechanisms that make the horses go up and down (located under the main piece that comes off with LtJim's directions) had partially broken and that horse would go all the way to the bottom and then the carousel would stop spinning.. There was no way to fix the plastic, but by holding the horse up with zip ties hidden under the top got the thing to work again. Thanks again!

Look at the switch and solenoid assembly at 1 oclock on the carousel. That is what activates to set it going and it then clocks off a ratchet wheel to do two full cycles looking for a selection then stops. If it gets stuck the carousel wont stop.

Wurlitzer one more time 1015 flashign #8


It's the 'duck bill' bracket on the shaft near the gear box. On the others side of the white gears at the base of the tone arm. There's a white bracket that dips and clicks a microswitch when the gripper arm is over the carousel. It's come loose. Press it with your finger when the gripper arm is over the carousel and it will stop. Tighten it in that position..
