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.

Carosel doesnt turn on rowe ami r-82 jukebox

First check to make sure you are getting power to the drive system. If turntable is belt driven, check power to drive motor, then check the belt. Otherwise it is direct drive, which means the turntable is connected directly to ths motor and the motot will have to be replaced.

Record tracking problem

There is a switch, or lever to a switch, that detects the end of the arm travel. For some reason, it is being tripped early. Try to open it up, and see what you can see. It doesn't sound like a broken part, but a dislodged part, maybe. That's all I remember, only had this problem once, years ago.

Rowe Ami R-80 imperial jukebox

Hello Andy,

Yes I know the 1976 Rowe Ami R-80 jukebox very well as well as most of the other Rowe Ami jukeboxes.

The turntable motor and the lighting work off of the 110 volt output from the power supply.
The other power voltages are connected to the power supply via the molex plug.

Pin 1 30VDC white/red
Pin 2 30VAC yellow/black
Pin 3 Common black
Pin 4 Ground gren/yellow
Pin 5 No connection
Pin 6 Common black

All the voltages are protected by circuit breakers.

I assume that you may be in the UK if this is the case here are my contact details.

How do I slow the speed of the 45s on my rowe r-92 jukebox .The records are playing a little too fast


The turntable motor on the jukebox range of R-84 to R-93 is none adjustable.
If you are in the USA then the motor operates on 60hz but in Europe it would have to be on 50hz to do this a different pulley is used.

The Rowe Ami part numbers are as followes:-

30791907 Turntable Motor Assembly 60hz
30791908 Turntable Motor Assembly 50hz
21817801 Motor Pulley 60hz
21817802 Motor Pulley 50hz

These can be ordered from a Rowe Ami dealer or you could try

My cd rowe ami jukebox is stuck in scan/transfer mode


You say you do not have the digital display lite up, have you checked all of the breakers on the power supply?
If not do so. Rowe Ami jukeboxes are very prone to dry joints (cold joints in the USA) this is cracking around the soldered pin on the connections to the boards.
If you can solder correctly then check out the printed circuit board on the power supply. I would retest and see if the display now lights after correcting a fault on the power supply.
If that has not made any difference then proceed to the Mechanism Control Board and the Central Control Computer (CCC) and check again for dry joints.

If you can not solder with any confidence then send in your boards to a Rowe Ami specialist for testing/repair.
