  • Jukebox question

    I'll keep it simple !!
    Just bought one of these and was wondering if anyone knew anything at all about them?

    The belt that runs round the record carousel has slipped off and i'm struggling with how it should go back on....the price of getting an engineer to it is way too high - and it's the only thing wrong with it [ i think!! ]
    i'm regretting this already...at least i found a brand new stylus inside !!

    I don't have any advice for you I'm afraid but wanted to say congrats on your purchase! I'm dead jealous! I'd love to one day have a cool old jukebox. I've looked onto them on the past but reconditioned ones always seem to be crazy money :/ I did see one in an Oxfam in Leeds once and always regretted leaving it.

    Anyway, hope you manage to get it fixed, good luck!

                It would be worth investing in a service manual for one of these

                I go through John at Durfee Coin Op

                With the aid of the exploded parts diagrams in the service manual i was able to fix the disc selecter mechanism on my AMI-Rowe jukebox no problems

                    When you get you manual if it has the exploded parts view you can check the arrangement of the drive belt around the tension rollers

                    I'm taking a rough guess that you would arange the belt through these in the correct order and then use the 'scan' function or whatever it is on your box to turn the record holder mechanism round to feed the belt back on at the top in a similar fashion to refitting a bike chain?

                        I'll dig a couple out next week once I'm back from my mate's stag do. It's the least I can do considering your generosity mate.

                        Looks great btw - nice buy

                          Good Stuff Flytipper.

                          I have a couple of Jukeboxes and have collected them since the early 80s.

                          Although I've never had one that "new" (it looks like a late 80's Rowe Ami? Not the easiest to work on...) its still nice to have!

                          The belt SHOULD go back on fairly easily...or has it fallen off because its worn and too slack?

                          I'm only in Hartlepool if you need me, plus I know a guy who runs between Tyneside and Redcar who is a JB mechanic...
