    Controller needed

    Thanks!

    Controller needed

    I have a FSI 3039 Vending machine and went through a series of troubleshooting procedures and have determined that I need a replacement controller. Any suggestions of where to go to find one?

    FSI 3039 Control Board

    I followed your directions and still get the beep on the keypads with everything else disconnected. So the next question is where to purchase the logic board? I see that you often have parts for sale for other vendors.

    FSI 3039 Control Board

    At this point I can't get the machine to work. Here is what I've found so far: When I turn on the switch to power the machine, the bill acceptor will cycle normally. It is a Coinco BA32SA model. When I attempt to insert a bill it will not pull it in. When I touch the keypads the piezo device on the circuit board will sound for every key that I touch on the keypad. When I depress the red button on the control panel, it will also sound. I am not getting any illumination of the LED indicator on the outer door but will occasionally see the LED's flash. What I'm attempting to learn is how to troubleshoot where the problem may lie. I measured the voltage to the bill validator and got 27 vac. The greatest voltage that I found on any terminal going to the coin mech was 25.6 vac. Coins cycle right through the coin mech. I've disconnected and reconnected all the harnesses thinking that perhaps there was a poor connection.

    FSI 3039 Control Board

    I have a FSI 3039 snack vending machine and believe that I need a control board for it. The screen is blank. Are there any troubleshooting tips to confirm that it is indeed a control board problem? If not, where could I have the board rebuilt or find a good used one?

    Snacktron1

    If they're not full, they are very close. Before I left work today I put some coins in the coin mech and they didn't cycle all the way to the return but stayed in the coin mech but didn't show the coin value like they had initially when I had it in the shop prior to placement.

    Snacktron1

    Thanks for your prompt response. I apologize for the lack of clarity. My employer has allowed me to place the machine at my work place. I had it in the maintenance shop to check everything out. Initially, the coins would just pass right through to the return. I then realized the switch needed to be depressed for the coins to be counted. Somewhere along the line I began testing the validator and at first it would not even begin to accept bills. Then it began to draw them in and finally it actually accepted them on occasion. After reading about the trouble many people had with the MAKA validators I decided to order a replacement and harness to adapt to my machine. It has not arrived yet. I transported the machine about 50 yards to the lunchroom and at that point could no longer get the machine to accept coins or even try to accept bills. The display stated to use coins only, or something like that. I've actually disconnected the wires from the back of the switch and attached them together to completely bypass it and was still unable to get the coins to be accepted. There is more, but at this point, I'm just trying to learn a step at a time. If I can get the coins to be accepted, I'll then work on the bill validator when it arrives.

    Snacktron1

    I recently purchased a Snacktron1. In the shop I was able to reset pricing, coin op worked, the bill validator worked occasionally so I've ordered a Mars replacement and adapter cable. I set it up for use planning to just use the coin op initially until the validator arrives. When I set it up, I no longer have the option to even use the validator. The message on the screen states coins only. I can't get it to vend at all. I've checked out the door switch, it seems to work properly. I'm looking for trouble shooting help. I attempted to modify some pricing after I set it up and now on those selections the display states something like "make another selection". If anyone knows of a troubleshooting manual, I'd appreciate where I might be able to locate one. I do have the set up manual but I didn't see any trouble shooting procedures in it. Thanks for any help, it will be greatly appreciated. My earlier machines were FSI models.

    Vending Cup a Soup

    I have a USI Model 3014A machine and would like to vend Cup a Soup or products like Maruchan Instant Lunches. Would a 6 turn spiral work for this application? If so, any suggestions of where to buy them? If not, what would you recommend? Thanks!

    501E Double Vend No Vend

    Does anyone know the correct cam and shim settings to vend 16 oz. Rockstar or Monster drinks? I'm guessing I may have issues in the shim area since I set my cam identically to another 501E machine that I have that is currently dispensing cans properly.

    501E Double Vend No Vend

    One of my Dixie Narco machine has developed and issue where it will double vend then not vend then double vend then not vend. What trouble shooting procedures should I use to pinpoint the cause of the issue?
  12. I've had two Dixie Narco 501e machines for a number of years. I recently had a JC-5 code show up but had no jam in that selection. When I would shut the door it would begin to "home" and dispensed 4 16 oz Monster Cans. Every time I would shut the door after pressing the diagnostic button on the circuit board, it would vend the four cans. The motor obviously works but I'm not sure what else to look at. All the other selections vend properly. The price display has a flashing decimal light as well. Any suggestions? I'm a total "newbie" to this forum and would really appreciate any possible solutions to try.
