  1. You can get the 6510 fixed or replace it with a 6512 later model or a Coinco 9302GX if you plan to keep a 3 tube mech in it. If you want to go with more than 3 tubes then a MEI 7512i is the one to use.
  2. The hi low switch is only for the quarter tube. The coins only going to the coin box, especially if they are credited properly, is a bad coin mech problem. Email me at rbepic4gatgmaildotcom if you need a replacement.
  3. Why on earth would you sit on that much money? It doesn't do you any good if it end up being stolen. It's probably no secret that you are in vending so no matter where the money is, in your vehicle, your office or your home, you are susceptible to burglary. Heck, in this day and age you're always susceptible to burglary. Just take it to the bank. This goes along the line of vendors who allow their oft serviced machines to collect a month's worth of coin with bills just stuffed in the coin box. Sooner or later someone is going to hit that machine and find a gold mine. You're all playing with fire and if you don't have time to go to the bank then maybe you're in the wrong business. It amazes me what vendors will think is safe to them and what parts of their business doesn't seem to have much importance. You should have a roll top safe in your vehicle and a safe or at minimum an alarmed counting room in your home or office. Remember, your insurance doesn't cover loss of cash.
  4. Make sure the shims are identical to what is in other columns that do work. If they are then you either have a slight variation in column width or your motor might have jumped one tooth on it's gearing inside, or it could just be worn out.
  5. If your vend motor coasts too far then the motor could restart upon the next credit set. Otherwise you either have a stuck selection switch or a bad selection switch.
  6. Each column has one wire specific to it's sold out switch and one wire common to all, so one wire can cause it with just one selection.
  7. If you know you've put the connector onto the switch correctly and not missed any tabs, especially the common on the side, then inspect all wires from the switch where they exit under the motor cover. You may have a damaged or cut wire at the motor cover. If not then check the sold out connector at the logic board. If it's fully plugged in then ohm out the wires before you replace the logic board.
  8. Leo, If you're actually selling these entire inventories then I'm sorry to hear that you are going to abandon the repairs of legacy machines. Don't you think you owe it to customers you've had from the beginning of your company, that you can continue to support their machines down the road? I recognize that vending is nothing like it used to be and those older parts aren't needed as much now, but how can you just abandon that aspect of the business? Why should you be like VE, Crane, DN and others?
  9. Maybe a loose connection on the board, display, keypad or other item around that area.
  10. Joe, Email me at rbepic4gatgmaildotcom. I have some bottle labels that don't show the package size on them.
  11. Email me at rbepic4gatgmaildotcom and I can send you a new one.
  12. Does your T-handle normally screw all the way in? The slam nut referred to is actually called a Quicker Lock which is a segmented nut assembly in the cabinet that you push the threaded stud into. The lock then grips the stud and you only need about 1 1/2 to 2 turns to get the door tight. If yours normally screws all the way in then someone has changed the Quicker lock to an earlier normal cage nut assembly like DN uses. In that case you could have a cross-threaded nut or stud or the stud isn't properly lined up any longer.
  13. The only advice I would give you is to list your potential machines here first so you can avoid buying garbage like ANY Seaga machine is. Not trying to be unkind but those machines aren't worth the sheet metal they are made of due to poor design and support. They are not manufactured in the US as Seaga would have you believe. They are ASSEMBLED here with imported parts and they are not long term reliable machines.
  14. DO NOT try to move it by yourself unless you have a Dutro machine dolly. Help for it will also be helpful. If you haven't invested in machine moving equipment then find someone local who does it and pay for their expertise and investment in machine moving equipment.
  15. Follow the wiring diagram on your inner door.
