  1. Good afternoon. I am back on this same machine. So, if I turn the thermostat off the fan stops and I can hear the compressor turning off but something is still running in the background. I am not sure what that is. I turned the machine on to the lowest setting and left it. Could it be something else? THanks.
  2. Good evening. I only own a single Dixie Narco 501e machine and I am a novice with it. The other day I came into my location and nearly all of my soda cans were frozen. When I opened the machine at least the first 3 rows of each selection was frozen solid. The machine was on and did not turn off. When I unplugged the machine and turned it back on the machine condensor started again. I am guessing but I suspect the thermostat is shot. Has anyone had this problem before? If my guess is correct anyone know where I can get a new thermostat? Thanks for your advice and help.
  3. Thank you. Clearly I am learning. I will order a MARS MDB Harness. I really do appreciate all of your feedback.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
