We have customers calling all the time wondering if they can make their Rhino Vending Gumball / Candy Machine into a "Free Spin" machine. "Free spin" means your bulk gumball/ candy vending machine will dispense product without having to use coins. We decided to make this blog to have an easy and quick reference no how to make such a vending machine.

The steps for making a mechanism free spin are as follows: (Help image is at bottom of page)

  1. Remove the center screw
  2. Remove the sprocket
  3. Remove the handle
  4. Remove the washer detector screw, spring and washer detector (discard all)
  5. Remove the three mounting screws that hold the back plate to the face plate
  6. Remove the back plate (Leave the ratchet and hammer assembly on the back plate)
  7. Remove the coin detector and spring
  8. Reassemble as shown

With your mechanism now free spin, everyone can enjoy your bulk candy or gumballs whenever they want without having to have a quarter. This is perfect for any office machine or a home gumball machine. The machine will still accept quarters but does not need one to vend product. This means that the machine can be used to store loose quarters as a bank. It is a great idea for kids to save money, Mom or Dad just holds onto the key.


If you do not want to try to convert a mechanism yourself, you can purchase a Mechanism and have us make the change for you for a small up charge. You can even have us put the free spin mechanism in your machine when you order.


If you have any questions give us a call at 866-648-6225.

Happy Vending!
