  1. When you buy a replacement mech, put it in a machine right away to confirm that it works and to make good on any warranty that it might have. Then just keep the mech that was in the machine as your backup. Otherwise, you might go to use your replacement and it may not work because you never tested it. Also, when you send a mech out for repair, put it into use right away and don't save it as a backup. Once again, you want to make use of any warranty the repair service might have and you want to make sure it was fixed correctly.
  2. I am interested in purchasing one of those boxing arcade games in which you punch the bag and it gives you a number showing how hard you hit it. Does anyone have any advice on which is the most reliable machine to purchase and which machine offers the best tech support and parts availability?
  3. I vend 16.9 oz bottles in the can product stop settings in my 660s without problem. Maybe you should try that rather than the 20 ounce bottle settings.
  4. According to the manual, the password is 4 digits, 4-2-3-1. The external password can be modified to another 4 digit number that would correspond to the selection buttons. You can not use 0 or a number greater than the number of selection buttons on your machine as your new password.
  5. Coke, Diet Coke, Cherry Coke, Mt. Dew
  6. Mine all report dex data such as cash and credit sales, coin mech level, cash box level, etc. I did have to update one of my boards to get cash sales, but all newer machines should report the data.
  7. I actually look forward to hearing AZvendor's responses. When someone asks for help with their Seaga machine, or asks how to charge a compressor themselves, I know he's working up a good response. He's brash... but it's funny. It's like being roasted by the late Don Rickles. You should be honored.
  8. Interesting machines. What country do you live in?
  9. Hello everyone. About a year ago, I started recording myself doing repairs to our vending machines so that I could post them on YouTube and help new vendors learn the same things I had to learn when I started vending back in 2016. I call the channel Happy Vending: https://www.youtube.com/c/HappyVending I've learned a lot from this forum and I would love to see some of the more experienced vendors make similar videos...LACanteen, AZVendor. With George and Randy's personalities, I bet the videos would be hit! If you get a chance, stop by my page and subscribe. If I get 1000 subscribers, I can actually start making some money from YouTube! I have dozens of ideas for new videos, and as I find time I record and upload them. Thanks....and happy vending!
  10. It's always great when you find someone who knows what they're talking about and is willing to help you. Congratulations on fixing the display!
  11. I have the shims for my Royal Merlin 4...but I didn't think it worked in the GIIIs. Do they sell a different one for the g3s?
  12. Well, since the new motherboard didn't solve the issue, you can keep the one you took out as a backup replacement board for when one does fail.
  13. The GIII machines do not use spacers. Make sure you have the long and short product stops for that column set to the "small package position".
