Free playing a Rockola 1493 Princess Jukebox

This article explains a more professional method to “free-play” a Rockola Princess Jukebox (model 1493). This theory can be adapted to many other jukeboxes, including other brands such as 1950s Seeburgs.

This method will: (1) not require any freeplay button, (2) prevent the Lock Bar Solenoid from energizing until the person begins selecting a song, and (3) keep the Select Light illuminated. Benefits: eliminates Solenoid noise during machine operation and standby, eliminates unnecessary solenoid wear, and increases usability and enjoyment of the jukebox.
