  1. So I have a Vendo 721 soda machine that I am trying to get a Parlevel Nayax card reader working in but so far no go. The card reader takes the money no problem and the machine gives credit but freezes saying you have $5 credit but will not vend anything and the only way I have been able to clear it is to unplug the system. I called Parlevel and after being on the phone for hours they say it is not their system. The soda machine is communicating with the card reader as it shows how many coins and cash it thinks it has (in the Parlevel system) as well as the Vendo shows you have credit after the transaction clears. It is not just a one off either as the system can vend from cash or coins no problem, but as soon as you run a credit card it just freezes up showing $5 credit. I was told by Parlevel that my Eprom might need to be updated, below is a picture of my board and eprom. I called Vendo and their parts department said they no longer support the Vendo 721 and the Vendo guy laughed at me saying these things are so old just buy a new system... As stated earlier this machine works great, I just need it to work with my credit card system. I sent Parlevel my pictures and they said I had it set up right. If it is the Eprom where do I go to get the download? I have not factory reset the system yet, would that do the trick? I need some help guys, please and thank you!
  2. Hey guys, I recently bought a Vendo 511 beverage machine. Being that I use 16.9 oz bottles of soda in a lot of my AMS machines, I always have this size on hand. Can anyone point me in the right direction as far as shims or spacers that I would need to vend 16.9 oz bottles properly? I'm fairly new to these machines specifically so I'm not sure which parts I would need, thank you.
  3. I have a Vendo model 407 that will no longer accept coins. I’ve done extensive troubleshooting and also had a repair guy over with no luck. Here are all the details I can recall. Thanks in advance for any advice….. The machine had been working fine but occasionally would not accept a coin. Reinserting it twice tops would do the trick. When it finally stopped accepting I took apart and cleaned the coin mech thoroughly. That did not help. Around this time, on more than one occasion, my sons put cans of Mich Ultra in the machine. These cans are too skinny and get stuck after the first “drop.” On each occasion I had to manually turn the drum to get the cans out. It was about then that the coin mech stopped accepting. I believe it’s a coincidence based on the following evidence, but it was worth sharing. I had a soda machine tech come over and look. He first tried putting in another coin mech, but that didn’t work. It still wouldn’t accept coins. He next figured the relay had gone bad, so he tried another one. That didn’t do the trick either. He tested the drum rotation (at one point one was not working, but swapping and re-attaching connectors got it going again), which ultimately worked fine. So - not the coin mech or the relay. All drums in “ready to vend” position with at least one column containing cans to dispense. He had with him a stand alone relay which he could plug directly into the A/C plug in the machine, which he then attached to the original coin mech. It was basically an old timers test tool for diagnosing as we were. When he connected that to the coin mech and inserted coins, it DID accept them. Hence the coin mech was working. I ordered a “new” relay and put that in, but no change. At this time I came to realize there was an LED light in the TOP of the coin mech that would come on when he attached his testing device, but that would NOT come on when the coin mech was attached to the machine’s relay. This was consistent across all combinations of mechs and relays. When attached to the tester, all appeared fine. When attached to the machine, it was not. My theory here is that the LED in the top of the coin mech is the “ready to vend” light. When it’s on, all is well. When off, the machine is not ready. The testing device just assumes everything else is good, and is really only testing the coin mech. But when the coin mech attaches to the machine, SOMETHING is saying that it’s not ready. I have examined the wiring, as best I can, all the way from the mech to the relay and also back to the area with the drums and dispensing. Nothing seems amiss. All drums rotate properly and appear to be in the “ready to vend” position. I have looked at the connections up by the coin mech, and those all appear sound. When testing I always make sure at least one column has cans to vend (or remove the spring so the column thinks it has cans). I’ve unplugged and replugged every connection around the drums. I’ve examined the switches behind the buttons on the front of the machine. All appear to be ok, though I’m a touch skeptical of one or two of these - that they may be stuck in the vend position. However, one has done that many times over the years and never stopped the process. I believe that’s everything. Thank you for taking the time to read my novel. I will be checking back a few times a week and will gladly perform any tests suggested and provide more information as needed.
  4. I just bought my first machine, Vendo 511, im trying to set the price, i press the mode button 3 times, go to Cost. I Choose the select button i want and set to $1.50 however it will reverse to $1 , what im missing? Every selection is now $1. Tnx
  5. I need your help on a Vendo 601. I keep getting error 1 on random columns, sometimes all columns without an actual jam or motor “coasting”. I’ve replaced the motors, motor switches, selection switches, board, Bill and coin, checked for obvious harness/wiring issues and removed the light bulbs. Most of my Vendos will have an occasional error 1 on only one column from time to time but this particular one goes thru horrible stages of all columns jammed then works flawlessly for several weeks then back to error 1 on all columns. To clear the error code I have been holding the motor switch and pressing the inner door switch to rotate the motors.
  6. Hello, I have a vendo 511 and one of the columns sells Monster and it takes 2 cans. Due to slow sales, I want to change that to regular pop and that column can take 3 cans. When I removed all the Monster and put the regular cans and increased the length of the column, the machine will spit out 2 cans on the first purchase then 1 can after. But I need it to spit out 1 can at a time. So how can I reset it so that it recognizes I have 3 cans and needs to spit out 1 at a time?
  7. got the vendo n21 running, was running fine, had a critter to clean out, so when I was putting everything back, I saw a spark, didn't think anything of it, come to realize nothing on the door works, not power to the door at all, I have 110v going in, the fans are running, compressor is off, door is off.
  8. I have a v721 with the live buttons (12 large buttons) display, the lock is automatic, I lost power to the machine, checked the breaker on the cord, it is fine, but hot, I cannot get inside the machine, how can I get power to the machine to open the door? or how can I open the door?
  9. I have a Vue 40 that has worked flawlessly for 6 months. I know I was lucky. I found a drink in the hand that would not release. Error shows PDC not available please check cable. Found exposed wires in the IGUS cable. Replaced that cable still got same error. So replaced the hand. Still same message. So I replaced the ribbon cable. After I replaced the ribbon cable the hand would move side to side in test mode, but would not go up and down. I did hear a high pitch sound and noticed as if the rail wanted to go up because it lurched for a second. But will not travel the Y axis. Error message now did not show PDC error but showed Y motor jam. So I replaced the Y motor. After replacing the Y motor I got the exact same result and exact same error Y motor jam. I think the the Y motor is running reverse and that why its jamming. It appears that it is trying to go down not up. I actually see the axle bind for a half second then relax then 15-20 seconds try again. Anyone have any ideas what to do next. The Voodoo 40 is once again living up to its name.
  10. so I bought a vendo! I know, I know..... I set it up, the machine is fairly new, and in great condition, I changed the bill acceptor, there are 10 lines in the machine, and 9 buttons, I am slowly learning the machine menu, it vends everything perfect, except 1 selection, sometimes ill put $1, and it will not vend, so I put another $1, it then vends, the next time I put $1 in, it vends for $1, this happens every other time, on this one selection only. what is wrong with it? what do I need to do? is it something in the menu? 2. I do I remove force vend? when I put $1 in, and press coin return, it will not return, and force me to purchase, please help
  11. Hello....We have a big Vendo V570 pop machine that was broken into. Not only did the punk take the money, but took the mech and bill validator too! I believe this machine is able to accept MDB or the standard (12/15 pin?) connections. Can someone please tell me which model #'s I can use for replacement parts? I can get more information if needed. Thanks in advance...
  12. Hello there all you Vending people I've been cleaning up an 'old' Vendo 75X and trying to get it running again to use it in a private setting on a Western Ranch. The Machine had been sitting there for several years and collected about an inch of dirt (inside and outside) so I started of by taking everything apart and cleaning it up before reinstalling everything. Everything seemed to work out fine except for one vending motor which seemed to be unwilling to make a full rotation. After operating the axle switch a couple of times the unit just showed "empty" and was unwilling to work anymore. swapping the motor unit to another position just made matters worse also rendering that selection useless... long story short, now all 5 selections show "empty" while the motor units work when I power them from a separate source, the diodes on the motor units check out, the switches work as they should... it seems to be a problem with the Operating Board now but for the life of me I can't figure out what went or is now wrong Does anybody have any good ideas? Might anybody have the Vendo 75X operating manual or schematics? Operating Board p/n BB01 2198FC05 (googling this brings me to a Polish website which claims to repair "empty" indicating boards for €90 so it can't be a huge issue I guess)... Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks everybody
  13. Hi, I recently bought a Vendo 407 vending machine. This uses a mars ms-150 coin mechanism. I will try to connect so I can get free vend. Is there anyone who can help me? PLEASE....
  14. I have a Vendo 480. Column 9 will be completely empty and the machine does not register as being sold out, so will accept money, engage the motor and dispense nothing when column is empty. Ive changed the sold out microswitch that engages with the paddle in the column with one I know works but still does the same thing. What else could it possibly be ?
  15. Greetings from A&M Equipment Sales. In the next couple of weeks, A&M will be having a parts liquidation from brands like AMS, AP, GPL, National, Dixie Narco and Vendo. Stay tuned for more information.... Meanwhile, please visit our website www.amequipmentsales.com
  16. Anybody know anything about these machines? Age? Where to find parts? Are they obsolete? What should I check out before putting on location. (Its going at a location I own, so any breakdown wont upset the "owner" too much..lol). Just want to get familiar with this machine as Ive only owned soda machines. The model number is S2000 however cant find much info on them online. Just bought this for $225 and everything seems to work. AND found the coin box FULL of change! Looking around the net, figured it was an awesome deal. Also cant find flavor strips for this machine anywhere. Any info or experience anyone has with these machines would be greatly appreciated. (And I did happen to find the manual online).
  17. Needing to replace a MARS VEC 5.1 A control board. Would any MARS 5.1A board work? Im having a hard time finding one with the same model number and part number. Mine is model VEC 5.1 A, part number 111559312. Ive found some 5.1A control boards that look the same, howver dont match numbers?
  18. Was wanting to know how many fuses and or breakers on a Vendo 407 Soda Machine? Ive located the one by the board below the toggle switch, but wondered if theres any others.
  19. I just came across an FSI / USI 3039 The Bill Validator takes a few bills then has trouble with the next. [$1 insert then vend, $1 insert then vend & repeat - then stops] Make: Nippon Conlux Co., LTD Model: NB2-16A-400 I want to change the whole BV all together. Looks like a single price soda machine harness - not too sure. Can the forum please help me out in this situation I am up against. Happy Mother's Day - Mothers!
  20. I am looking for some much need guidance! I have a Vendo V-max soda machine that I just bought and I am having trouble changing the settings from 20oz bottles to 12oz cans!

  22. Hello, I have been researching various glass-front soda machines and have narrowed my choices down to the Vendo Vue 40 and Dixie Narco Bevmax 4. I currently operate snack machines but don't know much about glass-front soda machines. I intend to place the machine in an office breakroom with roughly 250 employees. My questions are as follows: 1. Which machine is best? 2. Are refurbished machines safe to purchase, or is it better to fork out the cash for a brand new machine? 3. What types of mechanical problems have you experienced or heard of? Any help or information you can provide will be greatly appreciated. Happy vending!
  23. has anyone had issues with installing a crane telemeter cardswipe and radio in the 721 vendo soda machine. I have had quite a few issues with the machine not allowing enough time for the transaction to be processed therefore locking the machine up with the highest priced item. in my case $3.00. ive been on the phone with streamware and crane numerous times they are currently trying to figure out the problem. and the only way to temporarily fix the problem is to unplug the machine and plug it back in.
