    Dixie narco 276e help

    If you have a constantly flashing CC light on your acceptor you have an error within the coin cassette or the payout arms of the cassette. That will cause you to have a correct change light and acceptance problems. Check and make sure the cassette is in right, no coin jams, coins in the right tubes.
  2. It is a lot easier with piano movers like cvending suggested, but there is a lot of variables involved. We always try to go machine first followed by the door, but it depends on the layout of the room. Is it a straight shot in the room? Is there any walls or other obstructions next to the door? Its hard to recommend with knowing the layout.
  3. If you have never done it before, I would highly recommend hiring professional movers for your install. The machines can easily become unstable while on a pallet jack with door open. The last thing you want do is to possibly damage your clients property if the machine slips and falls or embarrassing yourself if the machine gets stuck in the doorway.

    Vendo 721

    It could be a faulty temp sensor, but I am betting on it being low on Freon. I have changed or charged many compressors that were massive blocks of ice that were low on Freon.

    I think you need to give up messing with that machine and call Pepsi for a service call on their asset. Your machine has been down over a week, I am sure your customer is not very happy with a dead machine. You really need to study up on basic electrical theory at the minimum before attempting to play with a machine. If you still want to spend your money, hire a qualified service tech.

    Bevmax 4 issues

    You may also want to check your shelfs and gates. You can get the same problem if they are dirty and or sticky from spillage.

    Government locations

    I seem to recall you mentioning that you were in Dayton. If that’s correct I know exactly what accounts you are talking about (water related). I work for the company that got the contract. Most of the of the city locations are duds with a few decent ones sprinkled in the mix. You didn’t miss out on that Airport gem. The majority of the public access machines are stuck in out of the way spots. The airport is decent, but used to be a really good account before the airport renovated and added new coffee and food locations. They moved vending to wayside except for the machines at the entrance. My old company before being bought out in 2012 had the airport since 2003.

    Check your door switch, be sure the machine resets. You could have a bad switch, loose wires.

    coin mech spits quarters

    Check your light system. bad or flickering fluorescent light bulbs can cause havoc with coin mechs and boards.
  12. Is it tripping when you first apply power or after running awhile. If its tripping right away, the first thing I would check would be the water heaters.

    Heat gun

    I use one all the time for frozen evaporators. A heat gun and a shop vac to suck up the water makes it quick and easy. Keeps customers happy too since you are not having overflowing drip pans ruining carpets or creating slip hazards. Like AZVendor said just use with caution and common sense.

    Merlin IV 768 problem

    I had one with the same message last week. A power surge at the account had cleared the board memory. It lost all of its settings and prices. You might have to do a board reset or replace the board if it is corrupted.
