  1. I read the relevant info and determined that my commission payments are all to corporations. Generally, 1099s are sent to individuals or partnerships, LLCs, etc. I'm no accountant, so I suggest you do your own research...
  2. You mean you have cups, but they have a hole in the bottom so that coins go to the bag? And instead you want the coins to stay in the cup? Mine was like that too, I use bags for nickels, dimes and quarters. I've plugged the holes for the others and that works fine. Closed cell foam cut to fit and glued in. I can post a pic if you need.
  3. why do you need more cups and how many? I have one spare for my Mach 5, plus I don't really care about the penny or half dollar cup - well I guess until I try to sell it.
  4. I have two 4900s that have suffered the unfixable error 90. Used to be able to reset the price and they were fine. For me, it is just one selection on each machine so it isn't a big deal and I just leave it empty. I am assuming it is the board that is failing or the wiring. Very little is worth fixing on these things - but for me, they are tanks that have withstood a decent amount of vandalism at a lower end hotel and keep working and generating lots of cash without much trouble. They will get replaced as soon as something big goes wrong.
  5. I replaced the condenser fan motor that was not working, but it is still not spinning. I ran out of time to keep working on it, I suppose the new motor could be bad or I didn't get the wiring tight enough, which I will go back and check. Just wondering if there are any other relays or fuses that would keep that one fan off? Thanks for any further help!
  6. I was doing to some work on one of my 5591s and noticed a bit of water under it. I've had this happen with another 5591 and it was just the air intakes under the delivery bin being clogged with lint/dust/junk. After cleaning that up, I checked behind the machine and saw that only one of the two fans was running. I've never checked before, so I don't know if that is normal or if both fans always run together?
  7. I have State Farm, about $350/year, they do not charge for adding an additional insured.
  8. Cup of Noodles will vend using a 6 count auger, alternate the wide/narrow ends. If you are talking about another noodle bowl product...I can't help. 🙂
  9. I had a similar issue, but it sounds like yours is more extensive. The display cable sometimes gets loosened by repeated opening and closing of the door over time. The display goes off, but the machine is still working fine. You get all sorts of weird reports of whats going wrong from people because of the missing display.
  10. They probably have it coded as being a product sold in a 10 cent CRV state like Oregon or something.
  11. I have the same problem, no shims but bottle gets stuck in the gate sometimes. I have taken to not filling it more than 5-6 deep as I believe that the more weight behind the stack, the more likely they are to get stuck. That gatorade bottle is not round, there are ridges and depending on how those ridges hit the gate, with enough momentum the bottle wedges partway thru. This jams the gate for the next customer. I still get these jams even with not filling the column up, but not as many. I would think that shims would cause a mis-vend, where the bottle that your customer is trying to vend is too tight in the gate to slide out in time. That's different than the problem I have with no shims, but the result looks the same - a bottle stuck halfway thru the gate. An observant customer might be able to tell you what's happening, but those are pretty rare.
  12. I appreciate this sentiment and agree that they need to be upgraded. I'm certainly not investing any cash in a Rowe machine, but they function well and don't generate much at all in refund requests at this time. They will be replaced if they break or as I find machines that can take abuse. My guess was that $5 acceptance was simply too much to ask of the 9340L setup. Thanks. By the way, Coke did go cashless at this hotel following a spurt of vandalism. It hasn't been received all that well, particularly by the employees who appreciate that the snack machines still take cash.
  13. Given its tank like nature, I have a Rowe 4900 at a hotel account. It has survived a few vandalism efforts without giving up the goods - that's why I have this beast. Anyway, it is set up currently with a Coinco 9340L and a Coinco bill validator. I recently swapped out the bill validator and left the $5 acceptance switch on in the new validator by mistake. I was surprised to see some $5s in the box, but it seemed to be working fine - the display shows $5 in credit and you can vend your item. However, when I double checked the change, I realized it is giving out exactly $1.90 in change every time. Strangely enough, 4 quarters, 7 dimes and 4 nickels...every time. Just for fun I changed a price to $4 and it did give the correct change for that purchase. So, it seems that for any price under $3.10, it won't give correct change. It acts the same no matter if the $5 acceptance switch on the board is set on or off. Any ideas why this would be? I ran across some info on tube fill mode, but that was for a 5900 and I don't find that option for a 4900. Is $5 acceptance simply too much for this machine? It is a single board 4900, by the way. Thanks in advance.
  14. I recently had a Rowe 4900 doing all of these things. Replaced the bulb and starter and all is good. It is very strange that both your Rowe and your AP are doing essentially the same thing...either a big coincidence (both have bad bulbs/starters) or maybe a bad flourescent light in the room near the machines?
  15. I can't imagine they care too much about how their cool new bottle shapes vend in 15 year old machines. I haven't tried, but I assume these bottles would vend fine from stacker machines. I don't have new model glass fronts so I can't say if the gates have changed enough to accomodate this bottle.
