    My sodas exploded everywhere

    Thank you everyone. The sodas were completely warm today... I guess I turned the old thermostat down too low. I turned it up to 1 and a half until it clicked. So hopefully they have cold sodas... but not too cold. I picked up a new thermostat today. Hopefully not too hard to replace.

    My sodas exploded everywhere

    I had a horrible time this morning after my account called that there was soda all over the floor in their break room. Nearly all of my canned sodas apparently froze and exploded everywhere. What could cause this? I turned the thermostat from 4 to 1. There is also an "off" option but I wasn't sure if that would make the drinks warm. Is it the thermostat? Anyone else ever have this happen? I didn't know these soda machines can get this cold.

    Model DNCB 368/MPC-8 - Bill validator and coin mech

    Awesome spreadsheet... thanks!
  4. I would like to know what bill and coin validator models are compatible with Model DNCB 368/MPC-8? Also, is there an online resource where I can just look these up by model number?
  5. Has anyone sold 1 or more accounts... and have experience on how that affected your taxes (such as Capital Gains and Income)? I have been made an offer on several of my accounts, but I don't know if the price is good enough to offset the (unknown) tax burden I can expect. It has been difficult getting an answer from the accountants I have tried... but they seem very busy. Any examples on how the machines were valued against goodwill (accounts), and how they were taxed? Example calculation.... 8 accounts (12 machines) for $12,000.... what are the taxes owed?

    Coke machine drip tray overflows

    The tray has sponges so I will check for air leaks next. Thanks.
  7. Royal Vendors RV model. I emptied the drip tray yesterday and today it is about 3/4 full. Soon it will over-flow and end up on the clients floor. The machine is indoors with air conditioning. What causes drip trays to over flow?

    Lost machine

    That is your property. He is not allowed to touch it without your consent. I would sue in small claims for the original price of the machine.

    Dixie Narco 368 Cooling Issue

    Agreed. Replace the thermostat first and if still does not work, go get Type I certified in HVAC so you can replace coolant. This won't be your first cooling issue, and in Nashville there is only one guy that does this, and he charges $175.

    Programming a Royal Vendors 660

    This helped a lot. It was hard at first, but then as I understood the logic of the choices it worked perfectly. Thank you!

    New Location Gross Sales Expectation?

    Yep, white collar is not going to do great. Maybe a once a month visit. You may try a snack and drink machine to just park there until something better turns up.
  12. The model # is either: RY660-21 or RV660-21 I need to know how to assign columns to the buttons. Which menu item is this? What are the steps to assign 1 or 2 columns to one button? Right now it seems that the product is coming out randomly, regardless of which button is selected.

    Bitcoin ATM machines...advice?

    I dabbled in Bitcoin and lost (only) hundreds of dollars via websites shutting down, garbage software, and transactions that won't confirm. Transactions take forever and more difficult than PayPal or a credit card. Bitcoin is crap... just by two bits.

    501e sales counter question

    When I open the door to my Coke machine there are various items that scroll automatically through the front display. For monthly invoicing purposes, I check the sales counter each time, however, now there are 2 numbers that are close to each other and I cannot tell which one is the actual sales counter. Could someone explain, in order, what each number being displayed means?
