There are primarily two types of carriage used in NSM jukeboxes:
The Shure Carriage is recognisable by a square/silver tonearm assembly and a black motor located under a silver motor on the right-hand side of the carriage. Shure carriages were fitted into the earlier E, ES and ESII technology Jukes like Prestige E120/160, City 1, early City II’s, Festival’s, Prestige ES160 and other models up until around 1983/84.
The Ortofon Carriage - recognisable is by a black/round tonearm assembly and grey plastic covered motor located under a silver motor on the right-hand side of the carriage. Ortofon carriages were fitted to later ESII technology Jukes like City II, Prestige II and other models from around 1984 onwards.

Although we are happy to repair individual faults, we do recommend that you consider a full refurbishment as it is likely that other problems will develop, and we only provide a warranty for the fault repaired.

A full refurbishment involves removal of all components from the main chassis i.e. printed circuit board, record lifting assembly, wiring loom, motors, etc. All the old lubricants are removed from each component, followed by everything being ultra-sonically cleaned. Once cleaned, all the components are individually inspected before being re-lubricated, re-assembled with new micro switches, full alignment and full test. Each refurbishment takes approximately 6 hours.
I have used NSM jukebox repairs for some time now , I have always found Colin to be professional and courteous. The distance is a major hurdle for us both, I'm in Manchester, and of course Colin is in Yorkshire, but even this seems not to phase him. His knowledge and problem solving are exceptional, I would have no problem at all in recommending Colin to repair any NSM jukebox 100%
