Vendo V 132 will not dispense

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I am new to this, and am looking for assistance with getting this machine to dispense. The compressor and cooling works great. The data tag says it’s a Vendo V132. The Coinco change counter model is an S75-9800B and has 1982 stamped on it. I changed the price to 5¢, and I can get it to accept coins. I’ll hear a relay click on, then immediately back off, but it will not dispense a can. I emptied the first selection column of cans, and saw that the “Sold Out” bulb illuminates momentarily when the relay clicks. The bulb does not stay on, and I cannot make a selection. There does not seem to be much info across the internet on this machine at all. I’m a mechanic, so I am familiar with electrical diagnosis and repairing things.


I have plenty of photos, but I’m new here and don’t know how to make it allow me to attach more

I'm guessing you have solenoids that release the cans and they are on serpentine columns.  But then you didn't attach said photo of the inside of the machine.  You could have a bad switch on one solenoid, a bad relay, or a bad solenoid.  Because it clicks the credit and then cancels it immediately means that a column is trying to vend as soon as the credit is set and that column, whether it moves or not, is cancelling the credit.  It's been a good 20 years since I worked on one of these.  Myself, I would take it to the scrap yard.  If you want an old machine then get a Dixie Narco.  Their vend mechanisms aren't so arcane.

Thank you for that information! Yes, I have the setup that you explained exactly. I spent awhile last night taking a look at all the wiring and found some broken wires around the solenoids and switches. I fixed and reconnected them all, but it still does the same thing. I jumped all 4 solenoids last night and got them to work. I don’t see another relay other than the credit one and it’s working. So from what you’re saying, I’m suspecting a bad switch or connection.
