Check that the coin return lever on the door is not stuck down putting pressure on the c/r lever on the mech.  Just a little pressure will prevent coin acceptance.  Make sure the return spring is on the door's c/r lever to hold it up when not being pressed down.

No idea what your problem is. But my advice would be upgrade to a nice 721 or Royal 660 with cashless device. Or someone else will in a heart beat for those sales. Good luck.

Hell yes! What Anacapa said.  If that machine is doing 330-350/week, I have absolutely no idea why you have such a small, old machine in there.  If space is an issue, invest in a 276E, 8-select Merlin 4 Royal (500?), Vendo 621, or even a USI CB-300.  The USI machine would have the least capacity but wow.  I'd easily give a location like that a brand new machine.  $15k/year out of a DN 320??  Come on man!!!

If it takes bills and makes the correct change and vends, but does not accept change at all it must be the changer. I know you said you tried other mechs, but if it is working perfectly with bills there is nothing else stopping the acceptance of change. I'm assuming you set the correct price in the replacement mechs?

I also agree that a more updated machine with cashless would be prudent to preserve and enhance your sales.

Tell them to get you the file for the graphics and that you will put them on the new machine. It’s literally like 200 bucks from NBS.

Is this your vending service?  If so, offer to do what orsd just said and copy the graphics and wrap the machine and make it look real nice.  Tell them you'll give them $200 for their machine if they let you put a much nicer model in there and you'll wrap it on top of that.  For that kind of money, I'd gladly buy their machine and sell it or even scrap it.. AND get a nice refurbished 501e or even a brand new Royal 650 or Vendo 721 and have it wrapped with their logo.
