Nostalgia Electrics Audio Players & Recorders - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

The problem is probably in the keyboard. Clean all the contact switches you can get to with very fine sandpaper. The reason it is stuck is it is waiting for that third selection to complete the circuit.

I have a model 464 and my problem was similar but mine was the second digit.
I replaced the p c board in the selection control box and my problem was gone.
I would check the selection control box.
Hope this helps

No, but like any machine, it does need lubrication once in a while. You should purchase a manual for it (eBay).
If the clutch has become stuck, it's time to call in a pro.
Are you sure it's in "PLAY" mode? Check to be sure the service switch is in "PLAY."
Does the motor turn?
If yes, try pressing the reject button on the back. Maybe it's stuck thinking it's playing a record in an empty slot (clamp arm will be against the turntable). There is also a manual trip lever just to the right of the tonearm. lift up on it if the motor is turning and see if that triggers it. Go ahead, it won't hurt you.
if the motor itself has frozen up from lack of oil, try putting some light machine oil (NOT 3-in-1 or anything paraffin based) in the oil cups on the side of the motor and letting it sit for a few hours. Then, turn the motor shaft by hand a little. This may free it up. if so, count your blessings and call someone in to give the whole mechanism a proper lubrication or something else will eventually seize up or wear out.
Good luck.
