I finally got together all my Coleman timers. I might have sime more? But this is all I found for not. Someone did “borrow” a broken timer but who is keeping track? 🙂
So of all my bad mouthing of Coleman timers…. I have 20 timers. 4 combs work, 1 bay work and 15 timers are broken.
In contrast my Dixmor timers I have. I purchased broken led 3 timers which are still broken. But I have only had 1 problem with a led 7…. the ir is broken.
I do with I tested a dixmor vac timer…. but I would pick them as the winner. LOL 🙂
One of my functions was not working and I wanted to see if the wire to the equipment room worked.
If your good you can tell for sure what timer I am NOT using. 🙂 Hint I wouldn’t use an IDX timer. Another hint…. It is not a trick…. It is not the vendor that produces both setups.
This was actually hard to see until you remove the insert. Plus the sensortron was nasty.
Do you know when you get the “Unexpected Coin Drop” error randomly that the Hamilton techs tell you to unplug the wire harness from the coin dispenser and plug it back in a couple times?
I also called Randy Nix who is a Hamilton rep and he told me that there was crap on the counter switch and that was the problem.
Guess which one was correct? You know I really like Hamilton changers and I for some reason really want to like this acw-5. But it is a true POS. (and I don’t mean “Point of Sale”)…… I also hate Hamilton support. I really believe that at least 1/2 the time they give you the wrong advice. I know for a fact that one jerk told me to purchase the main wire harness (cost me around $100 and takes about 1-2 hours to install) then Heidi another tech said there was no way that was the problem. Oh and if you have a problem she is the person to talk to.
Greg taught me this foreign phrase, I am not sure of the origin. The phrase “case quarter” apparently is referring to a actual quarter. So if someone says “Can I get a case quarter?” that translates to: “Hey I have two dimes and a nickel and a need a quarter! Can you help me out?” Oh and here is a Pro Tip for anyone that uses this “case quarter” phrase: if you keep repeating it the other person isn’t all of a sudden going to understand what it means!
I don’t recall installing the wire harness like this……. maybe I did? What was this person thinking? If I just get this wire harness out I can…… wait a minute the person wasn’t thinking. My bad!
Surprisingly everything still worked!
