    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.
  6. 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.

    Issue with DN 501MC

    I have seen that problem before in a 501. The vendor was located in a recycling yard and mice had chewed up the wire bundle from the selections. You probably don't have mice, but I would recheck the entire vendor wire harness. Bent, loose or corroded pins will give odd problems.

    royal vision 500 says REMOVE PRODUCT

    More then likely your bottom sensor is dirty or blocked by a piece of paper or dust bunny. Power down the machine and look at he very bottom of the delivery port box. You will see a screw holding in a metal plate with a small circuit board mounted on it. Remove the plate and carefully wipe down board. Reinstall and power up the machine. If you have access to some canned air or a low pressure air compressor you can use that to clean out the whole port area. That will take care of the problem 99 percent of the time as long as your port box rotates normally.

    National 431 Issue

    That chattering solenoid does make it sound like a bad or out of adjusted stop pin assembly. You might want to check the bolt and nut on the pivoting arm of the stop pin. I have seen those loosen up and cause odd problems. Easy to miss that one sometimes. Joe

    National 431 Issue

    Have you powered down the machine and hand turned the the turret to see if you have something is jammed? I once seen a can of OJ fall out in the back and jam the turret. Did you check the turret drive shaft coupling to see if its cracked or has broken pins? When they go bad you will usually see white plastic bits and pieces on the wheel. Have you checked the connections at the interface board and the main board? A loose plug or crimped wire will give you fits also. Both boards can also cause the problem, but the interface board is more likely. Good luck. Joe
