All stands should be polished with 303™ Protectant, or a
reputable substitute, every time the machines are serviced.
This will help to protect the stand against corrosion and
maintain its shine to keep up a steady flow of new and repeat
Be sure to check all nuts and bolts on the stand assembly
to ensure that all hardware is secure. A loose stand assembly
may not be able to support the machines in a safe manner.
The exterior of all machines should be polished with 303™
Protectant or a mild soap solution in order to remove dirt
and smudges. The use of 303™ Protectant will bring out the
glossy finish of the various components, including the globe
exterior, display panels and all chrome plated parts. This
product is especially good for plastic and powder coated
parts as it helps reduce the static that tends to attract
dust. The interior of the machine should ONLY BE CLEANED
USING FOOD GRADE PRODUCTS. A dry cloth is recommended for
cleaning the interior of the globe.
Whenever the dispensing conversion is removed or exchanged
in the machine, it is very important to add a brush of lubricant
to the centre hub of the hopper prior to installing the
new wheel. This hub acts as a bearing for the various dispensing
wheels and must have lubrication at all times. We suggest
a FDA approved petroleum jelly such as Vaseline™. All service
head components can be washed in warm water with dish soap.
They include the following items:
- Top Ring
- Side Rods
- Adaptor Ring
- Dispensing Wheel
- Brush Housing
On re-assembly, the threads on the side rods should be
coated with petroleum jelly. This will make future removal
The coin mechanism should be disassembled, cleaned and all
moving parts re-lubricated at least every 5,000 vends, or
12 months. This procedure will help ensure a smooth operation
as well as help reduce wear on the various working components,
extending service life.
The slip clutch handle is a maintenance free component.
It has permanently lubricated bearings inside which do not
require re-lubrication unless the handle is disassembled.
The locks are low maintenance components of the machine
assembly requiring only occasional lubrication. Every 6
months apply a drop of thin multipurpose oil (such as sewing
machine oil) into the top opening of the lock, then insert
the key, lock. This procedure will help in keeping the locks
operating smoothly, as well as reducing the wear over time.
