- How do I prevent my SmileMakers Vending Machine from jamming?
- Only use with SmileMakers tokens. Other tokens and/or quarters may jam the mechanism.
- Ensure that all capsules are securely closed when filling your machine. If a capsule is not secured it could open during use and it, or the toy, could become stuck in the dispenser.
- Large Bouncing Balls (not in capsules) and Capsule Toys should not be mixed together. This will likely jam the dispenser.
- What size Bouncing Balls can be dispensed by SmileMakers Vending Machines without a capsule?
- Only 43mm – 47mm Bouncing Balls can be dispensed by SmileMakers vending machines without being placed in a 2” capsule. Any smaller or larger size Bouncing Balls will likely get jammed in the dispenser.
All SmileMakers Bouncing Balls that are smaller than 43mm can be used in SmileMakers vending machines if placed in a 2” capsule for proper dispensing.
- My vending machine will not dispense. What’s wrong?
- If your machine is not dispensing correctly, please check the following:
- Are you using only SmileMakers tokens in the machines?
If not, this can cause the token mechanism to jam. SmileMakers tokens are specifically designed to fit in the mechanisms. Other size tokens and quarters may cause the machine to jam.
- Are you using only 2” capsules or 43mm-47mm bouncing balls without capsules in the machine?
SmileMakers Vending Machines are specifically designed for 2” capsules and 43mm-47mm bouncing balls. Other size balls that are not enclosed in capsules and smaller or larger capsules will not work in SmileMakers Vending Machines.
- Are all of the capsules securely closed?
If the capsules are not closed, the lids and/or toys can become stuck in the vending mechanism and cause the machines to jam. If you see that capsules are not closed, please empty your machine, securely close the loose capsules by pressing the lid against the capsule top until it clicks, and refill the machine.
- Are you using only SmileMakers tokens in the machines?
- My handle won’t turn correctly or is difficult to turn.
- We recommend that you do the following to ensure that the machine is functioning correctly. If, after taking these steps, you are still having difficulties, please contact customer service.
- Empty machine and make sure all capsules are closed
- Remove any broken or opened capsules
- Refill machine by gently pouring in the capsules
- Can I mix Bouncing Balls with Capsule Toys?
- We do not recommend mixing large bouncing balls that are not contained inside capsules with capsule toys. Due to the weight difference between the 43mm-47mm bouncing balls and typical capsule toys, mixing the two can cause your machine to jam by dislodging capsule tops.
- Can quarters be used in SmileMakers Vending Machines?
- No. Quarters may jam the mechanism. Instead, you could set up a trade-in counter at your reception or check out desk so that patients and siblings can trade their quarters for SmileMakers tokens.
- Do you have online instructions for assembling my machine?
