NicklesNdimes Posted March 29, 2018 Share Posted March 29, 2018 I'm having problems trying to vend gum in my AP 113. I keep coming to the machine to see a half-vended, crumpled up pack of gum in the gum tray. I've run a lot of testing on it, and while it generally works fine, every now and then, occasionally it would push two packs of gum up at the same time which is causing the jam. That clear plastic cover is doing its job of preventing the second pack of coming out at the same time, but the whole thing is just jamming. Other times, it seems like the first pack got pushed out but the thing that pushed it out couldn't make it back down because of the second pack getting squished. I'm not sure what I can do to prevent this. I'm using the 5 piece gum from Sam's Club that already comes labeled at a price of 35cents for some reason. I thought I could maybe get different packs of gum that would be a bit thicker and take up more room so the second pack doesn't get pushed up, but those don't seem to exist. Can't move the clear plastic cover any further forward, and I'm not sure how moving it backward could help. Anyone know what's happening and what I can do about it? And while I'm at it, what would be some good things to try vending from that gum tray other than gum and mints? If I were to give up on the gum tray entirely, can I put sell other gum like the 15 piece packs in one of the smaller spiral rows? I've had some decent sales on a couple flavors, so I don't think I should drop them entirely. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
