  1. Had one that was doing something similar. I tried adjusting the pins in the back and shimming up the boards. Finally realized the the latch on the left side was flipped around and wasn’t catching. I’ve also seen where the rollers wear and start to sag so it doesn’t make connection.

    Bill Reader returns bills

    If it’s one with a removable bill box l, sometimes the little crystal looking lens at the bottom of the box will come out a little and the bill will hit it and come back out.

    MEI- TRC-6800H Problem

    Make sure there isn’t a credit already set up. Just push a button. You will also need product in your machine or the changer won’t accept. There are some videos on YouTube that show you how to tune them. It’s a pretty simple process. Was it working & then stopped?

    Mars TRC-6800H sensors

    I don’t know about the sensors, I usually just send it off. But I did have a similar problem recently & it was actually the female end of the Jones plug, one of the connectors had pushed out of the back. I unplugged the power to the door & pushed it back in.

    No power to machine (FSI/USI 3132)

    There is a small breaker inside the door to the right I believe. I would check it. Might check the outlet & make sure it has power & hasn't been tripped. Check too where the cord plugs into the machine & make sure it hasn't been jerked loose. If I remember correctly there is a rubber grommet that the cord goes through. I would back up inside the machine (make sure the cord is unplugged) & splice in a new cord if it's tripping the breaker. I have seen cords damaged internally & short out.

    FSI 3061 Mars 24v Conversion

    Ended up using a Maka to Mars 24v harness & it worked fine. Thanks.

    FSI 3061 Mars 24v Conversion

    When I got it had a 24v Maka already installed. It works, but I don’t trust it enough for long term. It came with a harness the replaces Maka harness plugging direct to the board, with mars connections. Will post pictures when I get a moment. According to the parts manual there is a 110v & a 24v harness option for that machine.
  9. Has anyone here added a Mars 24v validator to a FSI 3061? It accepts bills, but does not set up a credit. I've played with the dip switches on the validator, but that didn't help. Is there programing in the machine that you have to adjust or do you know what the dip switch settings should be? Thanks

    Frozen cooling deck rebuilt from eBay

    Did you make sure the fan motor behind there didn’t accidentally get unplugged?

    what does this mean

    Check your connections into the board & make sure none of the have been pulled loose. Usually a good 30 could power cycle helps.

    Bottled Soda Shelf Life?

    It’s very short. I think it’s like diets & only about 90 days. I usually fine when the stores put drinks on special I have to watch dates pretty closely.

    I’ve been using Wave. It’s been simple to learn.
  14. I had something similar once. Seems like it had to do with it holding the bill in escrow. Does it take the bill in & stack it or does it hold onto the bill in the validator for a return?
