  1. Thank you. Clearly I am learning. I will order a MARS MDB Harness. I really do appreciate all of your feedback.
  2. Good evening everyone. I so. I bought the following : MARS MEI VN2502 U5 bill validator 24volt MDB, will take $1, $2 & New $5.00 But I am really new to the vending machine world. I clearly did not buy the one that works with my setup. Attached are the pictures from the old and new one. Can someone help me understand do I need different connectors or should I return the changer and buy a new one. Sorry for being so lame on this. First two photos are of the new bill changer I bought. Second two are the old one. Thanks again.
  3. Thank you everyone for your response. This is helpful. I will go and look for pricing for a Mars VN 25 series units. As this is the first vending machine i have how do I know if it is MDB? Someone said that it must be because the front connector is empty. Is that right? Thanks again.
  4. Good evening. I have a Dixie Narco 501e soda machine. The bill collector will no longer accept bills. The current bill collector is a Coinco BA30B. Is it even worth attempting to repair it? Or just I just buy either a new one. If so, can I buy anyone or should I purchase another Coinco. Thanks everyone for your help.
  5. Good evening. Thanks to everyone who responded. Turns out I was able to get it fixed. I ended up replacing all the fuses. The 6AMP fuse was blown. I could not tell it was blown when I first looked at it. Works well now. Thanks.
  6. Thanks Everyone. I am going to check the connector tomorrow while on Site. If I can't figure it out... I will let everyone know. Much appreciated
  7. Everyone. Thank you. I appreciate the responsiveness. I have spoken with Technivend before. They sold me some parts for my snack machine. To answer ORSD's question. I came into the store the other day to find the bill changer, coin receipter not working. When I openned the door the red light that powers them was not on. I checked all three fuses (1, 1.6 & 6AMP) and none of them look like there are any issues. I unplugged and re-plugged in the machine. I checked all the wire harnesses and all appear fine. It is an old DixieNarco 501 Polar Seltzer Machine. Looks like from the early 1990s. This is a machine I had purchased about 2 1/2 years ago for $300 on Craigslist so if it is dead I am fine.
  8. Good Evening, I am new to relatively new to this site. I have a used Dixie Narco 501 that has finally died. I am tired of putting money into it. I am trying to find a seller of refurbished machines in the New England / Mid-Atlantic area. I found several out west but the freight shipping to Massachusetts is not worth it. Not really interested in buying a new one as this goes inside a laundry mat. Preferred a simple DixieNarco 501 or similiar machine that takes cans / 16 oz bottles and has up to 9 selections. This site has been great the few times I have posted. Can anyone recommend someone for me. Thanks.
  9. All. Thank you so much.. Full reset worked perfectly. Hold the service mode button down for 2 minutes. Everything reset. Set the pricing and I was done. Thanks everyone for your help.
  10. Good evening everyone. So, i did a little trouble shooting this weekend on the machine. I am convinced it has something to do with reseting the space-to-sales (STS) setting. I just dont know what to do. So, I got into the STS menu setting. Each button basically had 1- when I did the display. When I attempted to delete any other button than the first the message said "button 2 is a slave button" So - how do I reset the STS back to normal? or better yet do I have to go through the process of adding each button to its respective column? Then will that make button 2, column 2 and button 3 column 3? I am completely perplexed by this one. I was thinking of disconnecting all the cabling and cleaning it and reconnecting. I can post pictures if that would help.
  11. THank you to everyone so far who has replied. I am going to try and look at the STS. I do recall at one point seeing the screen flash something about STS 1-1 (either disabled or enabled) I can't remember. I will be able to look at it again later this week as we got some snow where I live today.
  12. Thank you. It is a Polar Soda 501e. I think the answer is yes.
  13. Good evening everyone. I am very much a rookie when it comes to soda vending machines. I bought a used Dixie Narco 501e off a guy to put into my laundry mat. For the most part I have navigated through the issues that I encountered ok (setting prices, installing shims). However something happened this past weekend. I came into the store to see that the Dixie Narco had "00" being displayed. I turned off the machine and let it rest for a bit and then turned it back on. The machine went through its reset process. Then the display when and showed 99.95 which I knew meant I needed to reset the price. I successfully reset the price. Now for the fun part.. I tested the machine by putting in a dollar and selecting the first choice. A soda came out in the 2nd bay. I tried again - pressed the 1 choice and a soda came out in the 3rd bay. I tried again this time selecting the 3 choice and a soda came out from the first bay. You get the idea. What happened? how do I reset it? What did I do... Any help or insight would be appreciated. Did somehow the configuration of the machine get changed? We had lost power briefly that week. Thanks.
