If you own a soda vending machine or plan to buy one, you need to know how to change and set the selection prices. All selections can be set to the same price, or you can set different prices for different selections. Directions for changing the selection prices can also usually be found in the machine's manual.

  1. 1

    Open the vending machine door and press the service mode button found on the control board. The control board looks similar to a computer mother board. Once you press the button, you will see "HD" displayed on the front LED display of your vending machine. This will display for about 2 minutes.

  2. 2

    Press the first two selection buttons simultaneously until you see "RD" displayed on the LED. This will move you to the next programmable option.

  3. 3

    Repeat this step, pressing them together one more time. Now you should see "SP" displayed. This is the Set Price mode of the vendor.

  4. 4

    Press the first selection and hold the button in place. You will see the price increasing. Continue holding the button until you reach your desired price and let the selection go.

  5. 5

    Press and hold the third and fourth selection buttons together for five seconds. This will set the whole soda vending machine for the same price that you set for the first selection.

  6. 6

    Close the vending machine door. Now all of the prices are set into the machine's memory.

  7. 7

    Press each selection in one by one to ensure the price that you set is displayed on the LED screen.

Tips and warnings

  • If you hold a selection button too long and the price displayed on the screen goes beyond the desired price, let go of the button, and press and hold again. Pressing and holding the button a second time makes the price decrease. Each time you let go of the button and press and hold again, the price will go in the opposite direction as the previous time.
