Arizone Green Tea 16.9 OZ Bottles in Dixie Narco 501E Narrow Column - Correct Settings


Recommended Posts

I got these setting by experimenting but I have NO IDEA if they are correct. Total newb at this. The machine does vend correctly. These are going in the narrow column.

Here is what I have, can any one tell me if this is correct ?

Used: 12 OZ Can shim, with rod in position B, back spacer position 16, Cam setting 3.

Yes.  If it works why question it?

Because something that seems to work now may not be the best or most reliable. See also: 4 deep cans in Vendo 720s, anything in a P series Dixie, 16.9 oz Nestle water in anything.

But to answer the OPs question, yes, sounds about right. Just make sure the rear spacer leaves enough slack to slip a single finger between the bottle and the sold out paddle.

Mainly Because I HAD NO CLUE WTF I was doing  :( 

When loading the 501E do I have to manually turn and fill the rotor with the 'first' drinks ?



The easiest way to guarantee that it's primed and setup properly is to buy 5-7 (depending on cans or bottles).  With bottles (2 deep), vend until you get 5 bottles in a row.  Your first vend or two might be dry,but once you get 5 in a row, you will have verified that your settings are good and price is correct.  You really only need 3 in a row but you'd need to see 5 in a wide column.  I like to also make sure the stack is even too.  I can't stand it when there aren't 2 bottles on top or 3 cans.  Pet peeve.
