Critical parts of your vending machine will need to be kept clean to avoid operational problems. It’s important to implement a regular cleaning program in order to maintain your manufacturers warranty. This includes regularly cleaning the following 3 main parts of your vending machine;
- coin mechanism
- note accepter
Cleaning critical parts of your vending machine will assist in avoiding common vending problems such as coin jams, notes not being accepted and cooling problems in your machine.
A few minutes of cleaning on a regular basis is all it takes to ensure a trouble free vending operation and in turn gives you increased revenue opportunities.
Coin Mechanism Cleaning
A critical part of the vending machine that requires regular cleaning is the coin mechanism.
A clean coin mechanism in your vending machine will assist in avoiding common vending problems such as coin jams, coins directed to the wrong tubes and incorrect or no change given to customers.
The coin mechanism sensors in your vending machine can become dirty over time. Jammed coins or coins being directed to the wrong tube is an indication that the sensors need cleaning.
Worldwide Vending recommend that sensors be cleaned every second time the coin mechanism is filled. This is easily accomplished using everyday glass cleaner and a soft cloth. The cleaning process is simple and takes only a few minutes.
The video below has been produced to provide you with the information required to clean the coin mechanism sensors on your Sorrento vending machine.
A little TLC is all it takes
Routine cleaning only takes a few minutes to complete and it will certainly save some headaches down the track. Like all machines, a little Tender Loving Care provided to your vending machine will significantly reduce the risk of lost income flow resulting from machine down time.
