I own a Savamco Mac-22, which I've also seen listed as a Fro-Mac Snack/Drink Vending Machine. Mine is Grey/Black and it seems schematics for the machine are lost due to the company no longer existing. It's intermittently not accepting cash and sometime will only accept up to 2 dollars. It has worked completely at various times.


 


I've got an electrical engineer friend who offered to look at it, but documentation is really hard to find. We've already replaced the coin-co bill acceptor, checked the DIP switches, made sure change was in the reserve.... at kind of a loss unless we could get our hands on some more info...


 


Is it going to be possible to find schematics?


Is there a solution we might be overlooking? 


Should I bite the bullet and buy a new control board on ebay? There is one currently listed for 350


Should I totally scrap the machine and purchase something different? 


 


There is an AP snakshop 112 on my local craigslist that the person is asking 750 for but I probably could talk him down a bit.

I would probably vote to scrap it.  The board you are looking at is rebuilt at best, untested at worst....

Scrap it. Hard to find and questionable parts are probably all you'll find. Fixing it now it's delaying the inevitable. I've found quote a few quality machines around me for close to the $350 you were looking to pay. They just needed a good spit shine. You'll be better served in the long run.

You can scrap it but you can also try to fix it.  Here is a link http://www.vendingworld.com/Manuals/Savamco/FM1462.pdf 

I know this isn't your exact model but it gives a lot of information.  Looks like CoinCo contracted with them for service and repair. I guarantee they are still around and they probably know the answer to your problem.

 

Or call Vendors Exchange International:   8700 Brookpark Road, Cleveland, OH 44129 

Phone: 800.321.2311 

 

They have most parts.  They will probably have the manual you need and the parts.

 

Hope it helps.

Are you saying Vendors Exchange will not have the manual or the parts for that machine.

I forgot to use the quote for clarity.

 

We do not have anything for Savamco, Seaga, Snakrite, Antares or any other Biz/Op or off brand equipment

The motors will likely sell on eBay, if you keep them listed long enough.
