  1. I can't vouch for that machine but I just ran into a cooling problem on an LCM combo and I'm having the entire machine picked up for repair.
  2. It's not that old.
  3. To be honest, I don't know if that machine was ever tested for 12 oz bottles. They might not vend properly. If I were to guess though, I would guess you need to have the machine 3-deep.
  4. There are too many variables as to what could be wrong here but an experienced tech could probably figure this out very quickly. You just don't give enough detail in what's going on. What you are doing is the equivalent of calling a mechanic and asking "what's wrong with my car? It makes a weird sound." Without more detail, it's nearly impossible to come up with a definite diagnosis. If you really want help with this, then you need to be responsive to questions. If you don't have the time or desire to be detailed, then you're on your own.
  5. Honestly guys, the best selling Gatorade flavors depend entirely on your region and your account demographics.
  6. Basically, if you have at least a half an inch between the top bottle and the ceiling of the cabinet, you're alright. The reason for this is because the bottles lift up slightly as the rotor cycles.
  7. Welcome to the world of vending!
  8. I checked a validator that was in the truck. Assuming I had the right validator (90% sure it is) then the settings on it were 7 ON and 8 OFF. Also, to clarify to any doubters, this machine (501-E with SIID board) had a long harness that connected to a Mars VN 2511. Next to that plug on the board, there was the plug (10-12 pin) that went to the MDB harness which connected straight to the Mars 6512 (24v MDB). After removing the 2511 AND the harness, I hooked a 2712 directly up to the MDB harness and hooked the 6512 up to the validator. The machine worked fine in either setup. However.. I checked another 501E with an SIID board in it and I noticed that (from what I remembered) the board was slightly different. So, it's very possible that this is a different version of a SIID. Mind you, I have single-price 501e's, multiprice 501T's, and various other weird setups from DN. You all can doubt it, but it's real! In fact, if anyone will send me an updated SIID board, I'll send them the SIID that's in there with the harness so they can see for theirselves!! Just make sure the one you send me works lol.
  9. 2 deep just like 20 oz bottles.
  10. I definitely uninstalled a mars vn 2511 out of a dn 501e (SIID) with a TRC 6512 in it. The MDB harness went straight from the board to the mech and another harness went to the validator from the board. I will attach a picture of that harness.
  11. I think we need a picture a little further away too. It's like zooming in so close on a blade of grass and asking whose yard it is lol.
  12. Did you unplug things with the powr on?
  13. He never shares where he gets his below-cost prices from.
