Additional Information

Unboxing & Assembly

Congratulations on the purchase of your new gumball machine! Once you receive it, be sure to open and inspect it, and read any enclosed instructions to familiarize yourself with it. Your new gumball machine 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 - like most things - it is easier when you have a good set of instructions and pictures to follow.


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 Mechnanism

The coin mechanism is the most complex and critical part involved in how gumball machines function. 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 want to use your machine at home or office, and want to set it to vend without quarters (free spin) then follow these instructions:L


Dispensing Wheel

The dispensing wheel determines what if the machine will vend gumballs, candy, nuts, bouncy balls or or toy capsules, and what size or how much the machine can dispense. If you are vending 1” gumballs, then your dispensing wheel will have uniform, round holes, each large enough for one gumball to drop through per turn. For bubble gum machines and candy dispensing, the wheel will 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. Be sure to check out these helpful articles:
