Vending Machines

How do I prevent my SmileMakers Vending Machine from jamming?
  1. Only use with SmileMakers tokens. Other tokens and/or quarters may jam the mechanism.
  2. 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.
  3. 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:
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
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.
  1. Empty machine and make sure all capsules are closed
  2. Remove any broken or opened capsules
  3. 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.
How do I remove my coins from my vending machine?
For the VMA20SM:
  1. The token receptacle is located on the side of the machine.
  2. Insert one of the black rounded keys into the lock found on the side of the machine.
  3. Turn the key clockwise to the "OPEN" position.
  4. Pull the key to remove the drawer from the machine.
  5. Insert your fingers into the slot on the left side of the drawer and flip the cover up.
  6. Reverse the steps above to return the receptacle to the machine.
For VMA25 purchased after June 2017:
  1. Unlock the front lock and lower the front panel of the machine's metal base.
  2. Inside you will find a black, plastic bin where the tokens will collect.
  3. To close the panel, push the front panel back to its original position and lock.
For VMA25 purchased prior to June 2017:
  1. Loosen the lock at the top of the machine, but do not remove the lid.
  2. Insert the other key into the lock on the front of the machine. Turn the key 90 degrees clockwise.
  3. Grasp the Plexiglas cage near the top of the machine and tilt it up and back while keeping the metal base still. The cage will lean backwards, allowing the front panel on the metal base to fall forward. You may need to pull on the token mechanism handle to loosen the front panel the first time you open the machine.
  4. Inside, you will find a black, plastic removable bin where the tokens will collect. You will also see the backside of the token mechanism.
  5. To close the panel, tilt the top cage backward as before.
  6. Push the front panel up into its original position, ensuring that the lip of the panel goes underneath the black lip at the bottom of the cage.
  7. Pull the cage down, back into its original position.
For VMA57 and VMA57-4
  1. Locate the coin receptacle on the lower backside of the machine.
  2. Insert the coin key into the lock and turn.
  3. Once unlocked, the coin receptacle will easily slide out.
