  1. This machine is no longer in force vend, but now will not give change on vend price of .75 & 2.25. Help!
  2. Cover thanks for all the feedback!! nrod7
  3. Hello NYCman, Yes, I extended many courtesies. He quickly admitted to screwing up. He was aware the machine was as-is. He was aware that my services after the sale were not included.
  4. Thanks AZVendor, I believe I have enough product and the rear spacer is set correctly. He is vending 16 o.z. Monsters on column 9. I was vending the same type of product at my location. The paddle is down and the column has enough product...For that reason, i though it might be a switch. What else should i check AZ Thanks for the solution on the multi-vending solution. What should I charge for the service charge, correcting his mistakes, fixing "sold out" issue? Respectfully, nro7
  5. First, thanks for all the help on my last post (I.D. machine). Today, I received a call from a customer who bought the Vendo Univendor II. ( 9 select) Even though I suggested to the customer that the vend prices were set at a fair price, he decided to mess with the mode button. I have two issues !. If you purchase a Gatorade @ $1.25 with two $1.00 dollar bills it will keep the change unless select a soda @ .75. It forces you to spend the value over the first vend price. 2. I have a selection/column that if filled with product but "reads sold out" Any Solutions? Respectfully, nrod7
  6. You guys are the best. I appreciate all of your suggestions..........Sneaky, Sneaky broken female terminal to motor switch, column 1. Sneaky because although it was broken i was able to manually start the motor. Many thanks, and respect. nrod7
  7. First I need to know what model Dixie Narco this is? I just bought the machine ( I have had this issue before and it was the coin mech) Secondly, The MEI 2511 validator is blinking twice. The machine has a Mars TRC 6800H coin mech (Jones plus) This what i have tried (A) filled machine with some product (B) Filled the coin tubes half way---------THIS DID NOT FIX THE PROBLEM (C) I swapped both the validator and coin mech from a working soda machine. (D) I then tried another harness------------THIS DID NOT FIX THE PROBLEM The coin mech will eject coins by the toggle switch, but the red light behind the coin acceptor on the coin mech will not light up. I do have a complete harness that has the plug ins from the main body, to the door, up to the selection switches and the coin mech and validator. But, before try that, I am hoping for a simpler solution. Help! Any suggestions ? nrod7

    Need locator

    I appreciate all the feedback. I have been in soda and snack vending since 1998. I started with single and double head gumball machines ( 6 years ago). Only had a couple of dozen locations. No gold mines, but steady/safe locations. Love picking up the cash. I did try a locator (charity vending) and it just didn't work out. Funny the locations I presently have are all the ones i located myself. To say locating is my least favorite part of vending, would be an understatement. Can any one relate. However, i am talking about a high success rate and longevity in sales for my business. One last thing, When I was told that it was always best to offer (cringe!!!!) a 30% commission on a gumball location, I almost fell out of my chair. Especially, when not paying a commission on soda locations that use electricity. Why would I pay a commission on a gumball stand that takes up little space and uses no electricity. After I picked myself off the floor, and fought to be open-mined. I learned that paying a commission not only sweeten the pie (always talk to the owner/decision maker) to land the location. It ensures that you won't be booted out when the next vendor offers the commission. Also, the customer tends to watch over a piece of equipment that makes him money. Thanks for all the feedback, nrod7

    Need locator

    I am looking for a reliable locator for single and double head gumball machines. I am in Pasadena TX. Can anyone help? Not sure if this is the correct page for this type of help ( maybe classifieds?) nrod7
  11. I sold this machine to a customer. Now the coin changer is not working properly. I just noticed that the model# is 880-2. Maybe that will clarify things. Thanks, nrod7
  12. Coinco validator takes dollar bills, Coinco changer (PR3 018) will dispense change on a dollar bill for a .75 cent Item. BUT *** will not accept coins (drop straight to conin return*** What could be the issue? If I need to replace the coin changer. I am in need of a Coinco/24 volt/ model PR3 018. Is there a conversion harness to convert over the changer to a coinco mdb changer? Help! nrod7
  13. I changed out the control board. At that point, the validator did not even try to accept the dollar bill. WHAT THE HE** !! What did I gain today? More knowledge, and extra control board and finding out that (two) recently rebuilt working validators are non-functioning. I decided to try a Coinco BA30B & BAM!! it worked. What a relief. Thanks for all the feed back. Respectfully, nrod7
  14. The harness I replaced was the Coinco bill validator to MDB power harness cable. The bill validator(s) did try to accept the bill. The led indicator on the validator was not flashing, but was on steadily. There is no card reader on this machine. I will completely fill the coin mech today. and check all connections. Thanks for the help. nrod7
  15. Thanks NYCandyman. Not going crazy yet. I did remember to fill the coin mech with change and product. Also changed the coin mech to validator harness. Respectfully, nrod7
