I drove by the Morgan Road Car Wash today. Greg purchased it a couple days ago. They have put in another automatic and gone up on there self-serve prices from $2.00 to $2.50! So since December 10th, 2005 they have only gone up $.50….. inflation definately has not hit the self-serve market!
If you are interested, the wash has 2 Jim Coleman Water Wizards: 1 is the original while the other is a new 2.0 non-profiling. It has 2 Hamilton entry units and also a Jim Coleman Space Saver pumping unit for the self-serve bays.
I do not have very many Hamilton changer problems but I had one today. One of the hoppers got jammed.
The Mars bill acceptor was not shut down, but it was jammed.
The Mars bill acceptor sounded like it was still running and the acceptor was not shut down yet.
Coin jam. I just dumped the coin hopper, refilled, and everything was fine.
I believe I figured out the changer problem. The motor is really starting to sound bad and this has to be causing the random problems.
I had another hopper problem. I think it might be time to replace my quarters because there seems to be something sticky on some of them.
Interesting problem with my coin disperser. I am not really sure how this coin jam happened. The exit chute shows the weird coin jam.
Randy told me to check out my Cycle Inhibit Adapter harnesses, which was the problem. It has a short in the wires that are not wrapped. I am just going to replace the harness. But it was really weird that the changer had the same error yesterday 3 times in a row. Then today it worked for 10-12 bills until I touched the harness; then I could make it turn on and off by touching the wires. Great feature!
