  1. is it 24v MDB or 9pin? if its MDB, you can change to MEI 2512, and for credit card you can use payrange, if it 9 pin (usually 12v) then you would have a problem, as for the machine, if its working, let it work, no harm in updating or upgrading, if you need more help you can reach me 9one773one389one, send pics of what you got

  2. The standard, most valuable reply is junk the machine. Do the world a favor and make it go away.

  3. All good points with the past 2 posts on this subject. Does this guy wanting these machines know that you are 15 or did he just come across your website? I don't know many restaurant owners who would want to get into a contract with someone underage. Here are some other things to consider. Do you know how to fix video games? Things will break including monitors, etc. that will need to be serviced. If he is wanting 12-14 machines, you are also going to have to supply games probably like cranes, prize merchandisers, etc.. If you can't work on them yourself, are you going to be paying someone to fix them? Since you don't have a license, who will drive you to the location when stuff breaks down(which it will)? Normal contracts for games like this will include a split which is usually 50/50, 60/40, 65/35 type thing. I don't know any place that is going to sign a deal where they don't get any money until a minimum is hit. Sounds like you got a good head on your shoulders, but stick with your bulk vending for now until you have the capital to go ahead with a full game room of stuff.

  4. I've been stocking up keeping extra inventory more than usual on most items due to these shortages

  5. My experience with these machines is the seal between the deck and body of machine! Leaks! while it is running pass your hand between deck and frame. Everyone I worked on so far has leaked! Cold air! ca'jun

  6. The condenser doesn't ice up. The evaporator is what you gave to check for ice. It can be difficult to see on a bevmax depending on the version. On mine, the evaporator is on the right side near the 4th tray. I think it's all enclosed on the bottom in newer models.

  9. Call NBS (National Beverage Screenprinters). You can't get Coke signs but you can get generic ones. Coke doesn't license anyone to duplicate their signs.

  10. I assume the carpet you removed was frost? If your evaporator isn't icing up again then it's probably not low on freon. Have you checked your cut-out temp?

  11. I agree with azvendor here, especially now. Refrigeration work has gotten so expensive, it might only cost $100 difference between a repair and brand new deck. If you can get someone to add a valve and recharge it cheap (less than $150 initially, $100 for recharge), then it's probably worth it to recharge and run it as long as possible. If the compressor fails, replace it with a new deck or a working used one. I don't know if azvendor agrees with my rationale but things are different right now

  12. A VendMaster bulk vending machine appears to be a new version of the the old 1-800 machines of the past. The 1-800s were good machines so hopefully this one works well for you. Since there are no foreign objects or hands inside the canister you don't need to clean and sanitize it frequently unless you are changing from a nut based candy to a non nut based candy or for some reason it just starts to look dusty or dirty. You can use a food grade sanitizer like such as Purell Food Service Surface Sanitizer after you remove all of the product. Just wipe down the insides. let it dry thoroughly and put in the new candy. I use the Purell on the outside of the machine as well especially to clean the chutes. If more substantial cleaning is needed swap out the canister, take it home, remove the 4 screws at the bottom of the canister, and hand wash all of the parts with warm water and Dawn dish washing soap. Dry thoroughly, reassemble and your back in business. Over the years I have had a few locations out of thousands ask me for proof of liability insurance. If they do just call your insurance agent and he can fax a certificate to them to keep on file. It is impossible to keep anything in public "sanitized". People who are freaked out by germs generally don't use bulk vending machines and people who do use them accept the risk. As I said before I use Purell on the outside as well. The key to better consumer confidence in your machine (and better sales) is to keep it as clean as possible. Make sure you are thoroughly cleaning the outside of the machine including the base every visit. Good luck to your daughter and you on the new endeavor.

  13. The diagram is for the single price wiring. You do have some odd wiring next to the relay socket. All of the selection switches look like they have original wires on them. Is there a numbered wire loose from the top switch? I doubt that there is. Do the wires with the pink connectors next to the relay socket go to a switch on the outside of the door? If so then that is the free vend switch. If you remove that and the jumpers in the socket then you can put the relay in and it will be a normal single price machine again.

  14. It's been replaced now for 10 days. I'm still going to get to the bottom of it someday.

  15. Respectfully, I think you're trying to fix something that is part of the original design of the machine. There really is not a "problem" to fix. The button simply has to be held a little longer than one may expect. Consumers have gotten accustomed to that type of thing over the 30+ years that machine has been in the market so there really isn't a reason to start changing things now.

  17. I couldn't understand why you are writing like this, then I looked at your Username and it all made sense. Feel free to have the last word, I won't respond to people like you any further.

  18. You can't do that on such an old machine. Besides, it's not worth any investment into it. Your post hints that you might be a vending tech. If so you should already know this.
