Money is going in and no gumballs are coming out. The problem only seems apparent when the machine is full. Its like after awhile the mech starts skipping teeth on the carousel gear. The mech will turn all the way around but the carousel won't move. I tried adjusting the springs. Didn't fix it. What's going on?

Just a thought. Check the gear on the coin mech that actually turns the product wheel. There is usually a screw in the center of it that holds it in place. If it comes loose then the coin mech will spin but the coin mech gear won't turn thus the product wheel won't turn either resulting in no product coming out when you turn the mech.
