  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
  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
  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 pe
  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....
