MD100/MD100+ – Gauselmann

Manufacturer Recommended Cleaning Interval: Occasional/Check Every 6 Months

The special construction of the banknote checking device prevents soiling of the light barriers, but occasional cleaning may become necessary.

Do not use solvent-containing detergents such as alcohol, cleaning solvent, methylated spirits, turpentine, or circuit board cleaner for cleaning. Using these detergents can result in the destruction of the unit. Only use mild detergents.

It is possible to clean the banknote intake channel while it is assembled, but it is recommended to remove the acceptor head from the Merkur International Dispenser 100 PLUS.

Cleaning The Acceptor With The Cleaning Card
  1. Switch on the machine.
  2. Insert the cleaning card like a banknote.
  3. The acceptor moves the card back and forth 3x.
  4. Then the card is ejected again.

If possible, do not carry out this process several times in direct succession. Otherwise, the drive may overheat.
