Having in issue with my AMI jukebox. As soon as the Gripper motor puts down a record, loud click starts. I have a video of it below.

Anyone seen this issue with old jukeboxes?

Hard to tell if that is a mechanical noise, or electrical noise, or amplifier noise. Can you give more detail? What area does it come from?

Seems to be coming from the gripper some where. If I let it go it blows the fuse.

I know next to nothing about jukeboxes, but the noise obviously began about the same time that the tone arm landed on the record, and not the instant when the record was seated on the platter.

That sounds to me like a selection cancel solenoid chattering, likely from not getting enough current to push down the selection tab. I'd be checking the contacts & spacing of them on the set that's contacted by the L bracket on the main cam when the tonearm sets down. There's also a selection relay in that circuit that's mounted on the side of the mechanism.

That fixed the issue. Thank you.

Right now the Gripper will retrieve a record and put it down with no knocking noise. However when the record is done it will not put it back. Any ideas here? I have a video of this, https://youtu.be/-b4E8t9Clbc
