Greetings from Memphis, TN ...
My wife has always wanted one of the square coke machines from the 70's - 80's era (something to do with her childhood)
We recently purchased a used Cavalier model CC8-456G from a local guy who runs a construction yard. He said that everything worked and they had been using it down at his workplace and finally upgraded to a newer machine. I paid him $200 for it, plus $25 to deliver it to my house.
Mechanically, everything works, although, I managed to break the keylock ... whoops. I figure I'll replace that as well as the coin mechanism since this one doesn't support "free vend".
Now, the problem is that it doesn't get cold. I can hear everything running inside, and as I mentioned, mechanically it all works (drop in a coin, press the button, get a can)
Is there anything that I can do myself to troubleshoot the machine?
Does anyone know of a place in Memphis, TN that works on these?
Does anyone have any idea if a place would take this unit in as a trade and credit it against the purchase of one of their re-furb units? (maybe in Memphis to save on my freight charges?)
Thanks for the info!
