    USI frozen machine

    I have a few of the fully frozen and one dual zone that I converted to all frozen. When they work correctly, life is good. But the shelf roller system on these units is poorly designed. I have had more broken rollers on these shelves which is enough to drive me nuts. Lots of condensation issues with units, as well. door heaters are problematic and are not easy to replace. I've had to replace the glass on two units (one brand new) due to moisture in between the two panes of glass. With that being said, I would rather do frozen food instead of fresh food any day of the week.

    Bill Validator

    Did you depress the door switch after you installed the validator? With out the switch in, the validator will flash twice.

    Tired of counting change?

    I bought one of those a couple of months ago. I ran some coins through it,,but I have yet to use it for my counts yet. I'm Still using an awesome Brandt sorter.

    16.9 oz or 20 oz

    Another thing to consider when switching to 16.9's is the expiration dates. If you are going into grocery stores to bulk purchase the 16.9's, the expiration dates could be all over the place. I just bought 4 six packs for home use and when I was putting them in the fridge, I noticed the expiration dates were just 4 days from when I purchased them. NBD since they were for home use, but a PIA when there are going into machines.

  7. Mount it to the wall, or bolt it to the floor.

    National 145 & credit cards

    If they are in good locations, the locations deserve good machines. The 145's are relics that will become even more problematic should you put the UCB on them. If you hear Chris, listen to him! I will remind you that you asked for the advise.

    Cleaning DBV

    I've got a DBV that seems to have sprayed with Big Red. The belts squeal like a pig when a dollar is stacked. I've had success before putting coin mechs in the dishwasher before, but I have never tried a bill validator. Any issues with running through a dish cycle? Of course, I'd let it dry out for a week before testing it. Please advise!

    501e and PayRange

    Correct. It vends just fine off of PayRange, just doesn't display your credit. Just by chance, when I installed PayRange, the the blue light shines through the coin slot. When you connect with your phone, you can see the flashing lights through there, as well.

    501e and PayRange

    I've got a Coke branded 501e that I installed PayRange on. Everything works, except the credit from PayRange does not show up on the display. Is this something an updated eprom will solve? Current eprom is 390.51-B. Please advise.

    First AMS Sandwich-Food Machine

    Do frozen food instead. Much longer shelf life plus the added benefit of fast selling ice cream.
  14. There is a perfect machine for every location. But not every location needs a vending machine. Look, you came to the forum seeking advice. SLOW DOWN! The reason you are finding 'routes' for sale are because of overpriced combo machines that don't make enough money to make it worthwhile to those operators. Stick with Full sized machines and find good locations to put them in. You'll be much happier in the long run.
  15. My refrigeration guy hates working on Wittern equipment. You'll hate dealing with their service department when you have issues with either of those machines. do some more research regarding combo machines in this forum. Heed the advice.
