    What else will fit in 12 coils? Uncle Rays Chips?

    I've been a baker. I think it will take a while to replace experienced people.

    If we don't get ours from Vistar tomorrow we will shop Sam's. The loss of sales otherwise just can't make sense.
  5. Has anyone heard of problems getting Cloverhill products?
  6. No escrow

    Well, this is the coin mech.
  7. No escrow

    What brought this question is a problem with a vendo 511. So today I read the sticker inside the door. Escrow is in the machine programming. The machine has three tubes of quarters so it can be used as an extra change machine. I tried to get the machine to return bills by pushing the coin return button, but it wouldn't return the bill. Just like the customers told me. With the door open I held the door switch with my thumb, put a bill in the machine then pushed the coin return button. Still no go. So I pushed down the lever on the coin mech and the machine returned the bill from escrow. Is there a way to adjust the coin return so the lever will go down far enough?
  8. No escrow

    Why would a bill acceptor be set to not hold money in escrow? I understand the logic of forced vend, but why would you want to make it impossible for a customer to get his money back if his preferred product is sold out?

    Secondary change machine.

    Yes. The 1st floor soda machine has a four tube mech with three tubes of quarters and one nickle. Price all $1. DBA takes $5 bill and returns one can of soda and sixteen quarters. I can see three quarters and three dimes buying a can of soda and one nickle in change.

    I set a price to $0.85 and test vended it with a dollar. A dime and a nickle was returned as change. Bad button. All prices are in quarter dollar increments, so this machine could do better with three quarter tubes. I was just worried sales would stop on Sat. afternoon when the mech ran out of change.

    The Studio 3 wasn't accepting change this morning, so I got a rag and some glass cleaner and cleaned it up. Spraying the glass cleaner on the rag, of course. Then I blew it out with canned air. Now it takes change. The mech still won't give up a dime when the button is pushed. If I set a price to $.85 and buy it with a dollar the machine should give me a dime and a nickle, right? I'm kinda sick and thick headed so I didn't try this when I was at the machine. When I push the blue button for dimes I don't hear any noise from the solenoid or whatever kicks out the coin. Do I need to take the tubes off and check for a stuck (bent or sticky) dime?
  13. Corner of bag stuck under divider

    It works. I have been wondering about those angled tray ends for a year. All of the instructions I could find told me to tuck the product. After I changed everything and adjusted the dividers I test vended the products completely out with the door closed with money to see if they work. They do. Thanks. I thought I would seem stupid to ask about that bit of engineering. I think by doing it this way there is less chance of the corner of the bag getting stuck under the divider.

    Knowledge is power. I may not control anything here, but even the guy that cleans the crapper can influence company policy.
  15. Corner of bag stuck under divider

    I load Kit Kat across the coil because they break if I try anything else, and they vend more reliably. So, chip bags should be loaded across the coil? Candy bars won't load that way, though. Neither will Danish. They catch and rip apart. I have had many disasters because nobody taught me and the customers think I'm 'The Man' and won't give me a straight story. This was just a case of 'We fired the guy....go do his job.'
