Additional Information

Unboxing & Assembly

Buying a new candy machine is an exciting moment, but soon after you receive that tracking number, there is the realization that you will need to know this machine inside and out in order to maximize your candy vending profits. Welcome to the candy vending fraternity that specializes in turning pieces of sugar into shiny quarters. Your new candy vending machine will do most of the work for you, but you will need to understand how it works and how best to set it up before you can master the art of owning a candy vending route. Once you receive your candy machine, be sure to open and inspect it, and read the instructions. It comes fully assembled, but you will need to take it apart in order to mount it to a stand. This is a simple process, but here are some helpful guides:

Lock & Key

Be sure to not over-tighten the lock! Most locks only need a couple of turns to lock and be fully secure. Even just one turn past this point can break the lock and it will need to be replaced. The key will have your lock’s code on it in case you lose your key and need to replace it. Codes generally start with a letter followed by a few numbers, like T-001. Write this down and keep it in a safe place, because the key is the only place where you will find this code. If you lose it, you'll be glad you wrote it down so you can easily order a replacement!

Coin Mechananism

The coin mechanism is the most complex and critical part of a candy vending machine. Finally, the last moving part is the coin mechanism. If you need to check your coin mechanism or wish to replace it, it usually slides up and out of the machine once you remove the globe. You may need to use a screwdriver to get the coin mechanism somewhat loose, but they usually slide up and out with ease. If you purchased your machine for home or office use, and want to set it to free spin, check out these instructions:

Dispensing Wheel

The dispensing wheel of a candy machine determines how much candy is dispensed with each quarter inserted into the machine. Candy machine dispensing wheels have holes that are shaped like slices of pie and also are adjustable. Choose which setting you’d like depending on the amount of candy you want to dispense per vend.

So, how do you know what setting to choose? Since candy comes in different shapes and sizes and candy machines can vary slightly by manufacturer, the only way to figure out what will work best for you and your business goals is to test your machine. Before filling your machine, choose the candy wheel setting you'd like to test and put a very small quantity of the candy you'd like to vend in the machine. Run a quarter through the machine. Based on how little or how much comes out and your business goals, you may want to adjust your candy wheel setting to be larger or smaller and test it again until you find what setting works.
