Early 1970's Rockola 444.
This machine was blowing the mech fuse and binding up...we found
a lot of old grease in the mechanism and degreased it with Gumout
carburetor cleaner. We followed up the cleaning with LPS-1 and
then light turbine oil and Phonolube phono grease. Also we needed
to repair the tone arm cam which had been deformed due to a
mechanism jam. The cancel coils for canceling selections from the
memory bank as they play are common trouble spots on these
machines, as a mechanism jam may cause the coil to stay on
constantly, burning it out. We replaced one of the cancel coils,
and also replaced the turntable motor grommets.
