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)
- Remove the center screw
- Remove the sprocket
- Remove the handle
- Remove the washer detector screw, spring and washer detector (discard all)
- Remove the three mounting screws that hold the back plate to the face plate
- Remove the back plate (Leave the ratchet and hammer assembly on the back plate)
- Remove the coin detector and spring
- 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.
