JAMMED NOTES & COINS
Automatic and Change Machine
Keeping your money from Jamming.
Most change machines require that a note is complete, isn't glued or taped
together, isn't too creased and isn't too worn.
If you find that a machine won't take your note it is usually for one of
those reasons, although this isn't a hard and fast rule. Sometimes change
machines will take notes that appear worn out and creased but will not take a
new note that appears to have nothing wrong with it.
When a machine isn't taking a note we have found that folding the note
length ways and creasing it slightly helps it go through the machine.
Insert the coins with a little bit of a push, then pause between each coin.
Coins generally jam because they are inserted too quickly one after another.
Change machines need maintenance to keep them operating at their best and if
we find a change machine that isn't taking notes or coins properly we will fix
it as soon as we can.
