We have a Rowe MM3 Music Miracle jukebox that holds 100 45s. The exterior is in very good condition, but I don't believe it is currently working as it has been in storage for the last 20 years.

I have not been able to find any information on the internet in order to offer it for sale. Would you know it's value?

A jukebox that is not working may not command a very high price as usually only a dealer/repair person will be interested. Occasionally an individual will buy one thinking they will restore it.

  • The value of your jukebox will also have a lot to do with where the box is located as potential buyers want to see it in person so posting it on your local Craigslist (if you ever acquire knowledge of value) would be a good place to start.

I have a Rowe AMI jukebox Model Ti-1 Serial 868518. Can you tell me the year it was manufactured and if it plays 45's and 78's? I just purchased it with some 45's in it.

When turned on, there is a hum. When it plays a record, it still hums. I have been told to change the cartridge. Is it really that simple?

The jukebox was made in 1973. This jukebox will play both 45s and CD from what the manual says. I have found a video on how to set up your jukebox. You can watch it here. www.youtube.com/watch?v=H20krhR7zRo.

Advertisement

After watching this video I think this has the screws in the bottom of the jukebox to keep it safe from floating around during shipment. I would check this to remove these screws. From what this person is saying is the noise you are hearing is associated with having these screws in place. Please check this first before doing anything else.

You don't mention if it works.

If it doesn't, I recently learned that if you know how to take it apart (and even better...if you can test the individual parts) you can sometimes double or triple the "retail" value of the item versus if you were to sell it as a whole.

It sounds counter-intuitive, but there are a lot of people out there who like to repair the pieces already have or buy on the cheap and they want original parts.

Here are a couple of samples of sold parts for various Rockolas (not necessarily your model...but just to give you an idea of the concept).

I have a 1940 series d Rock-Ola. I got it at an estate sale. I'm having a hard time finding this model or others like it. The coin mechanism was pulled out of it.

Other than that everything works fine. I am looking for an estimated value and recommendations for a repair shop in Dallas, Texas.

This may be another "heyday" for jukeboxes as they seem to be very popular right now.

  • Jukeboxes in general are popping up everywhere but hopefully you got a good buy at the estate sale.
  • Rock-Ola is a popular model but all jukebox repairs are costly and there are very few repairmen that are mobile so usually the box has to be delivered to the shop. This may not be a problem for you but I would definitely say to get an estimate of cost (and how many dollars they can go over that estimate) as well as a statement saying if repairs are not completed (for whatever reason) the box will be returned in the same or better condition (not in parts but whole). I only mention this because I have read some really "horror" stories of what has happened at repair shops.
  • There is a good link in yellowpages for repair shops but you can also Google Rockola jukebox repair with your zip code and you may have better luck as most shops repair only certain brands. If you decide to use this link, I would suggest you call and discuss your problem so as to eliminate any that are not interested in your problem.
  • www.yellowpages.com/.../jukebox-repair
  • You might want to contact this person as he seems to offer free appraisals and he may be able to recommend what steps you need to take with repairs. (He is not in Texas but for an appraisal?).
  • www.coinopny.com/contact.html
  • Here is a link to a mobile repairman in Dallas but he may not work on your year machine - however - he may be able to send you to someone who does.
  • www.langhausenenterprises.com/
  • Here is another site that may give you some idea as to the value of your box (most of these companies want to buy jukeboxes).

Generally, units in almost perfect condition command the highest prices but where (physically) the jukebox is located determines the price and how or when sold.

  • These boxes are very expensive to ship (for individuals) so your box may command a higher price if you are located in a larger city as they can be seen and heard before purchase and no shipping involved.
  • I can find no evidence of a similar machine being sold over the past year but one did sell in 2013 for $2100.
  • There is one presently listed on eBay for a high asking price but this is by a seller that has very little experience with selling anything. But you might want to keep checking his ad to see if it sells.

There was 2 sold that were just like yours but I am not finding out the price they sold for. One site just marks the item sold and the other site makes you join the site in order to find out the price. The ones listed on eBay are quite expensive and range anywhere from 850 euros to 14,000.00 pounds. Most of these are sold from the UK and the price is quite expensive.

Here is one that sold for $863 dollars but it was valued at 1200 to 1800 dollars. So the real value of your item is $863.

It is difficult to help you find a value as you do not state anything about the overall condition of this machine and only state that it "plays".

  • Value of these machines is determined by several things so when looking for value you have to try and find this model (HF100?) in about the same overall cosmetic condition, sound (speakers in good or excellent condition), plays well, coin operation still working, and also, a very important factor - location.
  • Location is very important as shipping is very expensive and the average "buyer" will not want to add several hundred dollars to ship an item they have not seen.
  • Most individual sellers will list items as "local pick up only" so if jukeboxes are popular in your area then the value will be higher than in a smaller community that would never even look at a box.
  • Dealers will ship their sold jukeboxes and will sometimes pay for shipping pick up if they find a bargain in a machine they can restore.
  • If this box is not in very good condition then you may want to contact a dealer to see if they might be interested in buying.
  • No matter how you wish to "sell" it you will need lots of very good pictures (we are not even seeing the front of the machine so we may be guessing at the model) as anyone looking to pay even a low price will want to see lots of pictures.
  • Is this the same model as your machine?
  • www.vintagevending.com/seeburg-hf100r-jukebox
  • If so, then it is a popular model and should sell for several hundred (maybe thousands) even if it needs repairs. But, then again, your area may determine how quickly it would sell and also the end dollar amount.
  • Here is a link to a dealer that buys used jukeboxes and he likes Seeburg so you might contact him and see what he tells you. He will want to know a lot about the condition and will want several good pictures.
  • www.nationaljukebox.com/
  • When you find out what he will pay then you will have a better idea of your chances for selling it in your area. You may not be able to add much more than 20-30% above his offer.
  • If you list your box on your local Craigslist, USA4Sale or any other local site you should start with a higher price (good pictures & true condition) and reduce it if no one shows an interest.
  • Here is a link that has information about Seeburg machines.
