  4. Snackshop 123c advice

    Follow the steps below Diagnosing “invalid choice” on a 120 Series Press enter display shows “MIS” Press right arrow until display shows “DIAGNOSTICS” Press enter Right arrow until display shows “TEST MOTORS” (not “TEST VEND”) Press enter Type in the selection number showing the invalid choice message, press enter and watch the display. In a few seconds the display will say “PASS or FAIL”. If motor passes proceed to step 7. If motor fails you have a bad motor, wiring problem or failed control board. Press “ESC” until display shows “DIAGNOSTIC” Press right arrow until display shows “SECURITY” Press enter Press left arrow 1 time display shows MACHINE RESET N Change the N to a Y by pressing the plus (+) key Press enter Display shows “RESET MESSAGES” Press plus key until display says “RESET OPTIONS” (at this point notify the customer that if you proceed they will need to reprogram their machine when completed i.e. prices, motor pairs, temperature etc. the MIS information will not be lost.) Press enter Machine shows “ARE YOU SURE N. Change the N to a Y by pressing the plus (+) key. Machine should beep and the display will go back to “MACHINE RESET N. (not all beep so don’t worry if it doesn’t) Now ask customer if this is a stand alone snack or if a frozen/refrigerated 960/320 is attached. If a frozen/refrigerated is attached have the customer open and close the inner door (door with the 2 latches) of the frozen/refrigerated. And then close the door of the snack. If there isn’t a frozen/refrigerated attached close the door of the snack Wait for the “HAVE A NICE DAY” message to appear. Enter in the selection that previously showed “INVALID CHOICE” it should now show a price it may not be the correct price but it should show a price. If it does you have solved the customer’s problem and you can proceed to step 22 if not start over at step 1. Customer will now need to reset the prices. If there is a 320/960/460 attached they will also need to reset the Motor Pairs and Temperature

    You will need to order a new switch the actuator cannot be replaced.
  6. Wittern 3577

    You are missing the actuator for the switch without it the machine will vend from empty spots. the other issue could be the space to sales isn't set correctly. It should be sts3 or sts4 depending on the number of selections on the bottom row. To check it press the service mode button, then button 4 then button 6, press button 6 again to change it, when set correctly hit the # key to lock it in. Press the service mode button again and test the machine.
  7. Please ID these machines

    Yes that is a Crane Genesis Model 679 coffee machine.
  8. FSI 4131 board

    Glad that it worked out. There shouldn't be any difference other than the LCM board will not have iVend in it.
  9. Was it tripping the breaker before you changed the board? If not you may have the white and blue wires on the top right of the board in the wrong spots, they should go starting from the left: White, Blue, Blue, White, White, Blue and then an open spot. the first White Blue wires (P11) on the left should come from the circuit breaker area the next blue white (P10) should go to the coffee swing out the last white blue (P8) wires should go to the heaters
  10. FSI 4131 board

    The LCM board should work in a F80 machine. There are a couple of differences in the program (the LCM doesn't have iVend capability for instance) and the pin header for the key pad is different. But as far as functioning it will work. The LCM/F80 board was a off the shelf Coinco product that was used by 3 manufactures with minor changes in the program.
  11. Look like one of these? Marvend was first mentioned in Billboard magazine in 1961 and the last mention I found was in 1968 but I didn't search thoroughly.
  12. LCM's were built between 1994 and and February of 2002.
  13. Usi 3506

    May want to try 1 - hit service mode button 2 - press 4 3 - press 3 4 - may say all snack or can or bottle 5 - regardless of what it says press 1 and scroll through the settings until it says snac again 6 - press # to save the change 7 - press * until you are back to the motor count 8 - Press 2 to do a new motor count 9 - Press * until you are back to the normal vending mode 10 - test the selections to see if they now work correctly
  14. Are these bill changers worth anything?

    T The top and bottom photos are actually Ardac bill changers - had hundreds of them when I was an operator. Not worth anything now as Ardac is long gone.
  15. AP Studio-Correct change light

    The correct change light blinks on the Studio (SL Version) when you don't have enough money in the machine to purchase the item you have selected. In other words if you make a selection with no money in the machine the correct change light will blink even though there are coins in the coin tubes.
