Vendo 511 won't turn on, leaky compressor, drink stacking


Recommended Posts

The Vendo 511 has lights that work and a compressor that works, but I can't get it to turn on to access settings and have it be usable. Maybe the problem is that I plugged the machine into a low wattage power supply. Never got to see if it turned on in the first place so I'm not sure if this is the issue, but would like to know if this is a common problem. Heard the fan sound for a split second and then it turned off (did this a few times). Also it is leaking after leaving the machine on.

For stacking cans, it says the back spacer should be at 8 and 3 deep, but that only fits 2 cans + vertical cans. I'm not sure if I'm supposed to do 2 rows then stack a few vertically or if I should move the back spacer to accommodate 3 cans. And, not sure if each row should be facing a certain direction (I know in some machines one row faces forward while the other backwards, in the manual for Vendo it shows the cans lined up on the gauge bar facing back so guessing that is what it is)

Missing drain pan or the hose just isn't in the drain pan.  Do which machine do you really have?  You've said 511, 521, etc.  Those model numbers span 20 years and I don't think there is a 521.  Just a 621 and 721, maybe an 821.

You can plug a machine into a low wattage, not low voltage, outlet if you keep the compressor turned off.  Then you are supplying the normal 110v side of the machine.  On the V511 there are two fuses on the metal panel to the left of the condenser.  One is for the power to the transformer that is for the logic board, coin mech and validator.  You must replace it with a same model fuse.
