  1. I just found that in the manual, through the top, not tube.
  2. Thanks. Through the top of acceptor or the top of the tube?
  3. Thank you but like I said in the post, I did all that.
  4. Yes. Customers have to use coins after putting in $1 bill.
  5. Snackshop 112 will not accept a 2nd dollar bill, it holds the first into escrow. I put it in service and set 'no' for escrow and it still won't accept the 2nd bill. Is this sign of a board going out? Thanks!
  6. The person has lived there past 6 months, this is when I started losing products on bottom 3 rows. Video showed she used a golf club type thing, squeezed up from door and knocked it around, knocking product off front spindles. Therefore, I didn't put product in those rows, only higher rows. Then higher rows got knocked off. Pulled all product from machine until mgmt put in camera (2 months later), I lost $2900 compared to last yr's #'s, having it out of service and minus products in those rows, when in service. Mgmt said she has graffitied property & stolen boxes in the mail room. I made a police report today. My 3 other machines on that property, I have no prob with, due to cameras on them. It's just this one machine that finally got a camera set up on it, recently.
  7. That happened to one of my AP's couple weeks ago, the display board plug isn't plugged in tight. Well, that was my problem. It was a hair off.
  8. I've had a problem at an apt complex with snacks in the first few spindles of each row, being gone. Lost about $20-$30 worth of product each time. The mgr at the complex called tonight with evidence on camera of guys using a stick type thing and going up from the door, knocking off products. Last week, I put a sign on the machine saying this machine is under surveillance and I will prosecute.... Wondering if anyone has prosecuted and results? My state law is a 3rd degree burglary, class 5 felony.
  9. My heart goes out to Dayton and everyone affected. I grew up there and watched WHIO live stream the evening of the tornados. I contacted friends and family there and they were all ok, but they said the destruction is horrendous. Last summer we had a very large wildfire here. I was evacuated from my home/business for 20 days, lived in a hotel with ALL my pets. I had my work truck and cargo trailer full of snacks/sodas with me at the hotel. I run my biz out of my house and it's on a mountain, 15 degrees cooler than in town, where I was staying. I only lost about $30 worth of melted candy bars. I was on the edge of my seat for 3 weeks with the wildfire at my backdoor. No structures were lost in the wildfire & only 2 of my machines were in the evacuated zone. I felt very blessed. Please pass on my love to Dayton and take care.
  10. Thanks for input. They said for me to come up with a subsidy and $200 per visit is what I am thinking of putting on the table. Also, I took down their 'demand' of commissions to 5%, quarterly and not their high commissions monthly, on their original contract.
  11. This company wants me to put snack machines at chain stores employee break rooms. They gave me a contract to sign and I said 'no way' to their terms. Then they agreed to my terms. Although, they said the only thing they can't back down on is the price of products- .90 for candy bar, includes tax, along with other way low prices of products. That gives me not enough profit to cover anything to run my business. I am thinking of proposing with charging them a service fee to supplement the profit, I have no idea how many employees are at each property nor how much is going to sell. Charge $200 per visit to machine? Anyone have experience with this? I am the only vending machine company with snack machines in my little town. My little business is busting at the seams and I am not desperate to take on more properties.....but if I can profit, I will & don't want to lose $. any advice is welcome, thank you!
  12. Thanks! It was in my storage & I stripped it out yrs ago, to carry on my route & put in boxes of 'on hand extra' val & mechs. I didn't leave a note in machine of what I took & now mechanic garage needs a snack. I don't want to put one of my newer machines in the garage.... U guys rock, thanks for helping this little girl out!
  13. So, on a AP 6600, I can use a Coin Co BA30 or Mars VN2511 Vals? The manual is saying an Ardac, kind of outdated manual. Then a TRC 6000 would go with the VN2511 & 9300 L would go with the BA30 Mechs. I'm cleaning up a 6600....
