  1. Thank you all for your advice.
  2. I have a snackshop 123 and was wondering what's the best way to load thin candy like reese's peanut butter cups and m&ms. Should they rest on the bottom of the spirals or on the bottom of the tray?
  3. Thank you for the tips. I ordered a can of the vandal spray and I'll also try some rubbing alcohol.
  4. Ok..thanks.
  5. Ok..thanks. Do you think this coin mech is worth fixing? Or should I just look for a more updated model?
  6. I don't think it's chalk. I scrubbed at it for awhile with dish detergent..and it wouldn't come off.
  7. I just got this machine so I'm not sure if it ever worked. I will check the dip switches. Are the labeled?
  8. I have a MARS TRC-6510 coin acceptor in my AP 123c snack machine and it doesn't keep the tubes full. All money put into the machine goes immediately to the coin box...even in Tube Fill mode. Is there some setting on the CA that will make it keep money in the tubes?
  9. I have some graffiti on the bottom part of my AP 123 snack machine and I was looking for some tips on removing it without destroying the vinyl. Any suggestions?
  10. Thanks...I'll look it over.
  11. This worked for my machine...now it sees the selections on that tray. Thanks! Another issue I've noticed is sometimes the display flickers and the machine kicks me out of the programming menus. Is this the sign of a loose connection or board that is going bad?
  12. Thanks...I'll give this a try. If the motor test fails, what is the best way to troubleshoot the wiring harness?
  13. One of the 123s that I purchased is not recognizing a shelf. When I try to test vend, it says that the entry is invalid. I know the problem is not the tray itself because I've swapped them in the machine and tray works when it's put into a different location. The back connector looks fine to me...so I'm not sure what to check next. Any suggestions for troubleshooting the problem?
  14. Nice door color. What credit displays go bad George? The factory displays or the In-One displays?
  15. Thanks for the information George. Is there an advantage to updating the factory board on this machine to an In-one board? Does it give the machine added features?
