How to Clean a Change Machine

Looking for advice on how to clean and maintain a change machine?

If you've seen "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" (and really, who hasn't?), you can no doubt imagine that working alongside gumballs and candy can be lively. And when it comes to the sweet stuff, it is!

But, not everything Gumballs.com offers is as fun, colorful or delicious as gumballs, candies and other confections. We offer practical items, too. Gumballs.com also carries the full range of Standard Change-Makers change, token and ticket machines.

If you own or manage a coin-operated business, having a working change machine is the lifeblood of your business. Standard Change-Makers, Inc. has designed and manufactured currency changers for self-service, coin-operated industries, such as laundry, car wash, amusement and vending, for more than 50 years. These superior quality machines are built in the United States and require very little maintenance. When problems do arise, they can usually be resolved over the phone with a technical expert or avoided altogether by following a few simple maintenance guidelines.

The parts in Standard Change Machines that will occasionally need maintenance are the Bill Acceptor, Bill Dispenser, and Coin Hopper (coin dispenser). Other components, like the EF Control Module, Power Supply, and Cables require no maintenance. The most common sources that will limit the effectiveness of your change machine are dust, dirt, and rough handling. A can of compressed air, a mild cleaner like Simple Green cleaner or something similar, glass cleaner, and clean rags are about all you'll need to keep your machine in optimal condition.

The bill acceptor has a lower track unit that can be removed from the acceptor housing. It also has belts that move the bill inside the acceptor. Every couple months, Standard Change recommends removing the bill cassette and blowing compressed air into the front of the acceptor (where bills are inserted) to remove any dust and debris. About twice a year, remove the lower track and clean the glass window with glass cleaner and a clean rag. Use a cleaning solution to clean the belts, wiping them until dry.

The bill dispenser has a similar maintenance plan. There is nothing to remove or sensor windows to clean, but cleaning the belts twice a year, similar to the bill acceptor belts, will help keep your machine humming. Also, blow dust and debris out of the bill dispenser with compressed air periodically. The most common problem with change machines is a jammed bill acceptor. The easiest way to avoid jams is using ATM quality bills and loading the cassette properly. Limp, torn, or folded bills will cause bill jams so it's important to be aware that newer bills will always work better.

The coin hopper requires less maintenance. Dump the hopper completely of coins twice a year and remove any bent coins that may be lodged in the bottom of the hopper. Also, use the compressed air to blow any dust or debris off the hopper control board and coin chute.
