    501e and PayRange

    We have older eprom than that and ours works without a problem. Does your vend? Just does not display?

    We have all snack one key, all drink one key, all coffee one key, everything else one key. Simplifies things greatly. You can buy these several places. Google vending locks

    Cleaning Condenser fins

    D&S Vending has a coil cleaner that you spray on the fins, let it soak for a couple minutes and it will dissolve the dirt/dust. Turn the compressor back on and it does the rest. It’s about $8/can. Good for multiple machines per can. No clean up needed

    Royal 650 issue

    Power down machine. Check all connections from validation, coin mechanic board. Unplug and then plug back together to make sure you have a good tight connection.

    disposing of machines

    Selling these to someone on Craigslist is selling to your competition. They get them cheap and then try to place them.

    disposing of machines

    Scrap them after you be sure to scavenge out any common parts(motors, boards, spirals, harnesses). I hate when I scrap old machines then have a need for apart and have to buy new. You can probably get a Ryder or U-Haul with a gate for about 75 bucks and would most likely get a couple hundred bucks for a truckload

    dixie 501 live front

    That looks like it may have an aftermarket upgrade. The second display was not a part of the factory setup I don’t believe. Also the small delivery port suggests it is not a 501 E

    What type of reader are you attempting to install? Do you have it as the first connection in the MDB line from the board? Does it power up? What does it do?
  9. Does any part of the machine work? Does the light come on? Does the bill validator cycle when you power up the machine? Will it payout any coins? If all of those answers are "NO" you have a power issue. Check the lower left corner of machine for the fuse/breaker. Make sure it is good. I am assumingt that you have already checked your power supply to see if you are getting power to the machine.

    Ams 39-640 value

    AMS machine will display Sensit version on display as soon as you power up. Like others have said, 2 line display leads me to believe it is Sensit 3 along with smaller labels for items and prices

    Dixie Narco 276E lost fob

    It looks as though it was a Pepsi asset at one time. Pepsi should have a battery powered device to open it. Call your local Pepsi distributor and ask for the vending dept. may cost you a few bucks but cheaper than repairs you might need if you try to force your way in

    AMS 39 VCB vending extra column

    Told me the same. I put a new board in and still have that issue.
  13. I have an AMS 39-VCB that was originally selling all bottles. We needed to add snack/candy to it. The machine is a Sensit 1 that was upgraded to a Sensit 3 board. I swapped out shelf A for a snack shelf and dhelf B for a candy shelf. Added a Parlevel card reader. When I went to set up the machine for delivery I found that shelves B-E vended the 3rd column along with the selection you select. After talking to AMS service I replaced the cabinet tray harness as well as the harness from the board to the cabinet. No difference. They told me that the only other way that would happen is with a bad board. Put in a new board from D&S Vending. Powered up and seemed to work fine. Left on a service call. When I returned I began setting up for delivery and the same thing happened again. Called AMS and they think maybe there is a bad motor in the machine and it has now damaged the new board. I can't just keep putting new boards in. Unfortunately, I can't do any more testing until I now replace the replacement board. Any ideas? Thanks in advance

    InOne "reader" port

    I assume that is to connect a card reader, duh but it is only for a reader. No dex or telemetry would be available
