  1. I do use the timer programming...but this was a temporary request to turn off vending for a couple days. i didn't want to have to bother with reprogramming the machine.
  2. Thanks. I guess I should unplug the machine before unplugging the MDB harness?
  3. What would be the best way to turn off vending on a Merlin IV soda machine while leaving it plugged in so that it keeps the product cold. I would need to turn it off for a couple days.
  4. Maybe you need to disable Bill Escrow Inhibit in the Config menu.
  5. I am certainly no expert on them since this is my first one...but it appears that you can get different cartridges for them and configure them to hold different coins. Mine is configured to hold 2 quarters, 1 dime, 1 nickel and 1 dollar coin.
  6. Got the cf7000 installed and set up today. I used tubefill mode and it is filled and ready to go. I did some test vends and it dispensed dollar coins as change. Thanks.
  7. Why would they not dispense dollar coins??
  8. Will do...thanks George.
  9. I got my Mars cf7000 today. Should I use the tubefill mode on the machine to add coins into the acceptor? Or does the coin acceptor already have sensors that tell it how many coins are in it?
  10. Do you ever go to sleep at night thinking about the sounds of a vending machine? The bill acceptor taking a dollar...a soda vending...change being given. Since I started running the vending machines at our school, I sometimes hear those sounds in my head.
  11. I just ordered one.
  12. By "location ready", he means that it is in 100 percent working condition and ready to be put into a location of your choice.
  13. Thanks for the info.
  14. Hello. I currently have this coin acceptor in my Royal G3 soda machine. Since I have a MARRS bill acceptor that takes 5s, I was looking to upgrade my coin acceptor to one that can also dispense dollar coins for change. Does anyone have any suggestions for a good coin acceptor that I should pursue? Thank you.
  15. ok...thanks.
