  1. The 5591 is the worst “food machine “ever sold. 1 The refer unit is controlled with a mechanical cold control getting it adjusted so it never gets below freezing and never gets over 42° will require several trips to the machine. 2 When you load the machine with 150 bottles soda of 90° soda from your truck you close the door of the machine if it fails to get the temperature in the machine below 42° within 30 minutes the it will go out of order with a health error. (note the refer unit in this machine is to small to pass this test). Then what will you do throw out the food or reset the error and sell the questionable product? 3 The baffle in the delivery bin is opened by the weight of the product. The one piece rubber baffle is great for soda but too heavy for food items to open. The multi part baffle made for food is often damaged by soda bottles. Walta
  2. My guess is the problem is the vend sensor. Photo eye across the delivery chute. It seems very unlikely that a BA fault would shut down the display. Try the machine with the BA disconnected. Walta
  3. If this machine has a slave snack machine attached and early software. This symptom has been seen, just because the menu for the snack is in the software does not mean it will work. Also a bad keypad with a stuck clear key will make display go blank. Walta
  4. 1 Make sure the door switch is working. 2 Open the door. 3 Press the mode button 4 Press the 1 key 5 The display will show the number of nickels the computer thinks, are present in the coin mech. 6 Press the 1 key to increase the number. Press the 2 key to decrease the number. Press the 0 key to change coin type. 7 press reset key to exit. Later versions of the software have a coin level option that will not skip all the steps in menu #5 Walta
  5. About 75% of the 6600 sold were the 6600XL that were the same depth as the 7600 but narrower. The other 25% have shorter spirals that will not fit the 7600. The shelves and sometimes the spirals are the only different parts. Walta
  6. look at the arrows
  7. Permit and license requirements vary from state to state. In St Louis County Missouri we have 90 different towns each one different. Walta
  8. I do not think you will find any Triac at the HVAC supply houses You may have better luck at electronics suppliers, but there are few left in business Walta
  9. Grab part 16 in this diagram and pull it back into the machine then you will be able to see the buttons you are looking for. Walta panel.pdf
  10. 1 Yes this machine will not display sold out until it detects a failed vend attempt. 2 A failed vend should not require a refund from the desk. In the event of a failed vend the customer can select another product or press the coin return for their money back. 3 Sold out selections are in indicator quality poor service. Service the machine more often or get more and bigger machines. Walta
  11. 1 Throw away the spring, it was eliminated from later production machines. 2 Pry out the price tab holder while holding in the other cup so its spring does not send it flying. 3 Install a gear on the end of the screw that goes to the back of the shelf. 4 Install a gear on the back of the cup. 5 Install the cup in the shelf. 6 Snap on the price tab holder. 7 Move products pusher back and forth the cup should spin. 8 Test vend both selections. Walta
  12. All the parts for the cells are available. The hard thing is the part numbers are not in the books. My local distributor orders them by description. If yours has springs in with the gears discard the springs and reassemble. You should have 2 gears and 1 cup per selection everything just snaps together. I did have one cell that had worn to the point that the gears would slip past each other. Walta
  13. Snickers Please post a photo of the broken part of the cell. Walta
  14. I agree since moving the wires temporarily fixed the machine the harness is the most likely fault. Please note the original harness design was 1 wire from the board to the cup with no junction in between. If you have the one piece harness you will need the full kit. The last time I needed one it was a made to order item with a 2 week lead time and a $300.00 price tag. The newer harness is in 3 parts with connectors near the X and Y motors. Walta
