In order to maximize the effectiveness and efficiency of your vending business, it is important to know the basics of your machine including how to operate it.  With Vendnet’s extensive library of brief instructional videos, you can become an expert in no time!

Bill Validator & Coin Mechanism Special

There’s little that is more frustrating as a vendor than being unable to receive your customer’s money.  And it’s equally as frustrating for customers wanting to purchase products from you machine! Your customer chooses an item or maybe two that they want from your machine but when they try to insert money, there is a jam or a faulty piece of equipment that prevents the sale. Old or unreliable coin mechanisms and bill validators simply aren’t worth keeping around. Vendnet’s Conlux Special gives you a good deal on replacing your coin mechanism or bill validator.

When you purchase a Conlux mech or Validator, Vendnet will accept ANY complete MDB mech or validator working or non-working for a credit to be issued upon receipt and inspection by Vendnet. Rebate form must be filled out completely and accompany the unit(s) you are returning for credit. Credit will not be given for unit(s) that are not accompanied by rebate form at the time of receipt by Vendnet. All units sent in to Vendnet for credit become the sole property of Vendnet and will not be returned. 

Units should be shipped to:

Refrigeration Maintenance

Cold for the Holidays?

According to one of Vendnet’s senior technicians an important and commonly overlooked maintenance step for your vending machine is cleaning the machine’s refrigeration unit. Proper service to your machine will help keep it running like new year-after-year.

Here are some simple steps to make sure your machine’s refrigeration unit is running at optimal performance in order to keep your products fresh:

  • Replace the air intake filter
  • Brush off the screen intake underneath the machine
  • Wipe off the condenser fan in the back of the machine
  • Make sure the back fan is not right up against the wall.  It is recommended that there is at least four inches clearance between the wall and the back of the machine for proper air flow.

For more information on servicing your refrigeration unit including how to completely replace your refrigeration unit within your machine, check out this short video.

We also recommend cleaning off other dust or dirt your machine may have on the panel or glass window. Machine presentation can help products appeal to the consumer.

Please contact Vendnet today with any service or parts questions  at 1-800-833-4411 or email service@vendnetusa.com. We hope your machine stays cool and you have a Happy Holidays!
