Cleaning Procedure

All accessible parts of the coin route should be cleaned between 50,000 & 100,000 coins (dependant on coin type) using a mild detergent on a damp cloth. No spray solvents should be used.

Particular attention should be paid to the sensors at the coin exit, as excessive dirt build up on the optical surfaces may cause unreliable coin counting.

Areas to Target

The areas of the disc bed, which require cleaning with a brush and soft cloth with mild detergent, are the disc bed [image c right hand image] the disc, ejector fingers, adjuster plate and light guide or light pipe.
