  1. Tobacco vending is outlawed in just about every state and there are no more hot food machines around any longer. You might be asking about refrigerated food that gets heated up but those machines are loss leaders. If you do frozen food you can make a little money by putting ice cream in and being frozen, you won't have many stales but you will have to eat what doesn't sell well so you can try other items. Why are you considering these two types of vending? Do you like to be the underdog that will lose?
  2. It stopped before the cam notch so it wasn't coasting.
  3. Your rotor is in upside down and if you changed the switch was it new? Your rotor looks like the motor ran without stopping and timed out. That or you didn't put a new switch on but a used one, or the rotor is bent. Can you post a link to a video of it running?
  4. It is possible that a dead battery could cause the loss of STS but I'm not certain of that. You probably will find that most settings will remain. The prices are the most volatile since they are the one item most likely to be changed by the user.
  5. With no experience with them, an immediate breaker trip is probably a bad relay board but it could be some 110v short as well. Also, since it's an import, if it's the first time you've ever plugged it in, is it maybe set for 240v operation? You could also disconnect the tank heater and see if it still trips but the heater probably isn't supposed to come on that soon anyway, leading to the relay board being the culprit.
  6. You should try three deep first and see if it still has the issue. Also make sure the column clips are set for small package vending and that the depths are programmed properly for each columns.
  7. You have to ask a question to get any wisdom.
  8. That is a National machine and all you have to do it flex the bottom tab of the yellow retainer toward you which then allows you to lift the spiral and retainer off the motor shaft.
  9. There is no door switch on an LCM unless the aftermarket board kit included one.
  10. Loose connections can cause all kinds of issues. Just find someone who can resolder it for you and it should work fine again. Heck, you can do it yourself.
  11. Repairing them yourself is how you guarantee another repair is needed shortly after. Find a reliable rebuilder or a Coinco repair depot to get them fixed correctly and completely.
  12. Do you have a vend sensor on the delivery bin? If so then the board may be set to stop the motor upon the sensor triggering.
  13. The display pinouts on the logic board probably need to be resoldered. It's very common for them to come loose.
  14. Live Life, this should be a new post so that more people see it. Tacking it onto an unrelated post doesn't help anything for you.
  15. He already has it connected as MDB since the front connector is empty.
  16. The coiled capillary tube is in the plastic clip that is in your last photo. That plastic clip has to be pushed into the evaporator that is in the far right back corner shown in the photo. The clip snaps in between two horizontal evaportator tubes. The sensor being out in the open and no where near the evaporator is your problem.
  17. Make sure your cabinet drain hose is draining the water out and not plugged up causing standing water to freeze under the evaporator. If it does then the evaporator fan blade will eventually hit the ice which sounds like a helicopter. If that isn't the source of the noise then you probably have a bad condenser fan motor in front of the compressor that is real slow as it gets hot. If so then it needs to be replaced.
  18. First off, turn the thermostat ccw until it stops to note where zero is, then set it at 3 1/2 and leave it there. Second, you may have a bad fan on the compressor or only one of the two fans is running. This will cause short cycling of the compressor. Third, check for placement of the thermostat cap tube at the evaporator. If it's a coiled cap tube end then it needs to be held by a plastic holder that clips into the evaporator. If it just has a folded end then it has to be pushed into the evaporator. Fourth, make sure the machine is not pushed against the wall preventing condenser air flow. Fifth, you might have a frozen evaporator caused by low freon. Last, it could be a bad thermostat.
  19. Check all the grounds in the soda machine. DN machines have green ground wires between the coin mech door and the main door, inner door and the main door, main door to cabinet, from the main power harness to the cabinet and from the evaporator motor to the cabinet. Various harnesses can also be grounded such as the light circuit. Don't overlook the power plug in the wall - not just the ground pin but also is the outlet properly grounded with no leakage to ground. While it could be from the snack it's more likely from the soda machine.
  20. Gate links. They are plastic pieces behind the motors that operate the gate above the rotor. They are engaged into the front of the rotor and as it moves it will move the gate to keep multiple cans from dropping into the rotor and jamming it.
  21. You probably have worn out gate links. The only way to unjam them (when there is no apparent physical jam) is to remove the 3 motor screws and pull the motor away enough to free up the gate link. The rotor will break free and probably move out of position. You then have to realign the rotor with the vend timing of the motor before reinstalling the motor. The fact that you now have 2 columns jammed points to all the gate links being worn out. You should replace them all or this will keep happening more frequently.
  22. It depends on what harnesses the machine has in it. Your search term is too ambiguous. It may be set us for a Maka, Coinco or Mars validator. I wouldn't buy the USI 30XX models due to their age. Look for newer AP or USI machines.
