  1. Today
  2. I have a Rowe 4900 and we are experiencing weird behavior. When you would put a $1 bill in the machine, it would be $3.80 on the display. Some times it would let you choose a product that was $1 and it gave back $0.05. The same thing goes for inserting quarters, the machine things they are $0.95 each. Then I went to look at the stored pricing and all the amounts were goofy. I tried to reset them, tried pressing the red button and I am not getting much action. Now, I still a $1 bill in and it immediately turns the coin only light on. I try to eject bill and have no luck. The only error code I have seen is 9.29. I cannot seem to figure out what is causing the issue. Any ideas would be great. Thanks!
  3. Vendo shims do not interchange with Dixie Narco shims.
  4. i have shims for my vendo 511 not sure if they will work or not. can you put a picture on here for me to look
  5. The machine detects no errors but getting please make another selection on several items. The strange part is doing nothing more than power cycling the machine will bring them back. This keeps happening and is usually the #4 items. Has USAT LTE card reader,led lights hard wired shelves and is on a surge protector.

    @orsd yea I am pretty positive it's not polycarbonate because I bought two headlight restoration kits and experimented on one globe with them, it didn't work. headlights are polycarbonate. I also used WD40 along with GooBeGone on another globe to get the baked on stickers off and it corroded. I read afterwards those will ruin acrylic, so.......after the "scientific" experiments, I boiled it down to that the globes were acrylic. Your response to what you thought they were helped solidify this even further. Now I just want to see if there's a solution for getting out the orange tint from acrylic. Funny thing is, I thought acrylic was immune to UV discoloration, so it might be a result from whatever they had inside the machine like roasted peanuts or something. I have 8 machines, but I think I am going to stick with a 4up for this restoration and keep the others for parts. I saw your link and it's good to know you have spares if I need them! Thanks again!
  9. Did you ever figure this out? To reply to your question above, you have to take the back off the machine to see if the tank is filling.
  10. There is a tech up here in Canada. See if he will help: For more information phone me Harvey Bartzen at (780) 905-7829.

    Either polycarbonate or acrylic. Polish with plastic polish. (Wear a good respirator mask, most polishes contain crystalline silica) If that doesn’t work time for a new globe.

    @orsd would you perhaps know what the dome part is made of? Is it plastic? Acrylic? I am looking to make a few less yellow. I have failed with many attempts. I feel like it might be acrylic?

    THANK YOU! I will look into that brand name now. I will most definitely write back if I need parts, or have questions. You are awesome. :)
  14. I resolved this issue but I haven't visited this site in a while and just wanted to update this in case someone runs into the same issue as me: Turns out it was the motors. Replaced them both and everything was ok after that.

    Karma, wait for it.................................
  20. good to know. the blue cases i’ve got from sams are definitely better than the green bj’s ones(they’ve now discontinued them entirely). never had sams ones that were stale out the box though so far. as for concord in general though, it’s unacceptable to me that concord has never addressed the purple fading issue. i’ve mentioned it to Lola many times. i’m sure many people have. how hard can it be to test out a new dye? ford gumballs never getting hard does sound intriguing but it’s just a lot more pricier for me.
  21. I would also meet with coke first to make sure they will allow you to keep the machine! OR just buy the account and place your own machine if you can...
  22. https://vendingworks.com/blogs/news/coinco-bill-validator-troubleshooting-ba30b-mag50b-ba32sa If it needs to be repaired according to the video throw it in the trash and get a Mars VN2500. I don’t send out BA30s for repair anymore. MAG50s and only if it’s an odd Coinco only application.
  23. No typo I test every location and keep track as to when product is changed out. In the last year or two (started before Covid) I noticed that Dubble Bubble was often harder than normal right out of the box. The expiration dates were always fine but some cases seemed semi stale. Sam's will take it back but I don't have time to fool with that especially when it's a reoccurring issue. So I will take my business to Ford because I can buy a pallet of their gumballs for very close to the same price these days and I am reducing the amount of gumballs that I am throwing out as stales. It doesn't break my heart either to reduce my dependency on Sam's Club for another staple item in my business. Sam's pricing is usually the best but their lack of consistency with product availability and poor customer support is really frustrating. I have indeed lost locations through the years due to hard gumballs. The problem with hard shells is that if a customer chomps down on it they can hurt their teeth and much to my surprise there are people out there who bite them with their front teeth. I found this out about 3 years ago when a kid lost a front tooth doing just that. Hard shells are a complaint generator for me and frankly fresh always sells better. I am sticking with Ford going forward and have already moved all of my slower locations to that brand.
