  1. They can be installed on location.  It's best to pull the unit out half way from the front to access the start relay and capacitor which the hard start kit replaces.  You need to know though, that there is a ground wire attached to the compressor base which will prevent you from pulling the unit out.  You have to get to the rear of the machine to remove the wire.  It's a ground wire so it must be reinstalled after the unit is recounted.

  2. On an older cooling unit that clicks on without starting you can try putting a hardstart kit on it but that will just be a stopgap measure before you have to put a new compressor on it.  The risk of a hardstart kit is that sometimes that can cause a compressor to burn out by being helped to run when it should be replaced.  If the compressor burns out you will have a much more expensive repair because the refuse from the burnout is pushed through all the freon lines and the evaporator.

    You say you added freon last year.  What gas did you add to it?  If it was R12 you have contaminated your freon because that unit runs on 134a.  The two freons aren't used in the same compressors due to the types of oil in R12 vs. 134a compressors.  If you added R12 to it then the compressor now needs to be replaced and the entire system must be flushed to get as much of the contaminated oil out of it before putting a new compressor on.  You don't want to contaminate the new compressor too.

  3. If you actually have a black metal Maka bill validator then your machine is a single price machine.  Maka made no MDB validators.  If you have a Conlux, who owns the Maka name, then you could have MDB.  Single price would have no credit display.  In that case you can easily put another validator on the machine as long as you have the correct interface harness to the coin mech.  What model number of coin mech do you have?

  4. Why not do bottles for effect and how do you know it's not already set up for can vending?  Most are already.  Regardless, try and someone might come along in a few weeks to answer your question there.  That site deals with old machines.

  5. Can't be bothered to write and punctuate a complete sentence, eh?  Here is the programming manual:

    First try page 46, then 45, then maybe page 16.  You could have bad motors, a bad shelf harness or a bad shelf interface board on the right side of the cabinet.  For quick testing you should swap the shelf with another and see if it works in the alternate position, also seeing if the working shelf still works in its alternate location.  This will isolate the issue to the shelf or something beyond the shelf.  Your real issue should go no further than the shelf board but it could go back to the snack interface board.

  6. That valve is leaking and you need to replace it.  I doubt that it will even work since it looks like someone used pliers on it before and ruined the shaft.  You might have to replace the compressor to make the repair since that valve isn't put on by manufactures of the correct compressor for that machine.

  7. If your Aquafina bottles are firm when they are warm then they are injected with nitrogen.  Those are the ones you want to continue buying.  You might want to buy a huge stock of it because it will certainly not always be stocked that way.

  8. Rock solid machine.  Cans three deep and it can vend 16 oz water and soda if it's multiprice. If it's a Gatorade or Veryfine Juice door it will have smaller buttons but that's all that's different.  If a Coke door then it will have 7 selections with cols 1 and 2 slaved together.
