Here it is again, remember you can use the search feature to locate by using key words like "free play" to locate topics of interest.

You don't know how long I have been looking for this info.  Thanks alot.  I will have to check out all the other info on this site.   My buddy refurbs/restores old Coke Machines and Gas Pumps.  He has done many old machines/pumps but got his first newer machine (late 70s - early 80s) and I was trying to figure out how to setup a free vend on it.  Again, thanks for the info.

Glad to help! send your thank-you note on the  back of a twenty dollar bill to... ':p'  anyway hope it helps! the diagram will help you sort out vending problems on most 115 volt AC
8-pin "Jones" connector style  machines, just be warned the "free-play" switch will have 115 Volts across it. so insulate it well & dont place it in a "wet" area such as a bottle opener slot, etc.

Diagram worked fine.  I used 14 gauge wire and a small Momentary PushButton rated for 115V AC mounted in the top of the Coin Return.  I used blades from replacement AC Plugs for the plug into the receptacle.  I used heat shrink tubing when possible and well wrapped electrical tap connections for the others. We left the Coin Mech unplugged for now, but may want to use both some time on the future.

After getting the Free Vend to work we found out that two of the selections did not work correctly.  One ended up being the brake on the cam mechanism that runs the microswitches for the selection motor. A little 3in1 oil on the arm solved it. The other was simply a connector that needed reseated due to the machine sitting for a long period unused.

Just thought you would like to know it all worked out well.

Hi!  I'm new to the vending world.  I just got a Dixie Narco model DNCB 168/99-5 with a CoinCo mechanism in it model # S75-9800B and wonder if the free play switch illustrated here will work on this model?  Also, if not, is there some way to set up a free vend on it? How do I tell what the year of Mfg. is for this machine?  This is a great site.  It appears you can get just about any info you need to get these machines up and running!  Glad I found you!    TIA, Tim

<font color='#000000'>I want to make sure I get this correct. Line 1 & 7 is jumped together and tied into one side the push button switch. Then the other side/line goes to 3?

1 = 117 VAC (Hot)
2 = 117 VAC (Neutral)
3 = VEND RELAY - NORMALLY OPEN
4 = NC (No Connection)
5 = Exact Change - Normally Open (NEUTRAL)
6 = (HOT) ACCEPT COINS
7 = VEND RELAY-NORMALLY CLOSED (HOT)
8 = NC (No Connection)

I don't understand why the VEND RELAY (7) is listed as hot unless that is after you plug the coin mech in. I understand the VEND RELAY (3) as being open since this goes to the relay. When power is applied to the relay. It allows you to vend a pop. Also I found on the board if you jump say 1 to 5 it causes the correct change to stay on. This makes sense

Thanks,

The purpose of pin 7 is to present a "ready to vend" (on/hot)signal back to the coinmech, conversly, it also gives the coinmech a "lockout" (off) signal, so it doesn't allow a multiple vend.
