I'm trying to repair a Vendorlator VF-165 that has a Mars coin manager that is dead. I'm unable to find a manual or any info on what coin mech was originally installed in this machine.

I'm wondering if a Coinco 3000S series would work? Anybody have any inside info on this machine and if this would work? Much appreciated.

A little outside of my wheelhouse as it's too new for my knowledge-base...
Perhaps someone that has tinkered with newer machines will chime in...

My six cents,

pretty much any 120 volt/8-pin (Jones plug style) coinmech will work...

yeah that's the problem with MARS electronic mechs, once they glitch, their done.  if you push the coin-eject buttons on the side of the change tubes & nothing happens ( no coins attempt to eject to the coin-return cup) then the logic board is toast. make sure you have power to begin with between the female Jones socket pins #1 & #2 & there should be a small red LED power indicator behind the coin-acceptor  area.  but never unplug the ribbon cable that connects the coin-acceptor to the main motherboard of the coinmech when the power is on... it will scramble the coin-detection circuit & it will reject all coins
