Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

I presume you are asking about a Seeburg jukebox, model C100.

The selector arm may have a problem, if the selector arm is what is making the chattering noise. Look into the jukebox while the problem is occurring, to see if the selector arm is reciprocating (moving back and forth rapidly), and also to generally see where the moving parts are at the time of the chattering noise.

Let me know how old, and how well-maintained or well-restored and recently (or not!...) maintained your Seeburg is, also. And I will advise you further. Thanks.

Russell,
Thank you for the reply. I will take a look at the selector tonight and let you know tomorrow.
I restored this machine and it works very well except for that machine gun noise when it goes to make a selection.
Thanks,
Dave

I work about 12 hours a day and haven't had a chance to check out the juke box, but I will certainly let you know... thanks

That's fine. There is no hurry about getting back to me on this, though I would like to help with it eventually. Respond at your convenience. Thanks.
