Can the Stacker Comb Kit (#100-0099) be installed on any stacker?
This Stacker Comb Kit can only be used with a single stacker, part #36-0036.
How often should I clean the hopper?
Setting up a regular maintenance schedule is highly recommended. Depending on use, the hopper should be cleaned every 2-4 months.
How do I clean the hopper?
Refer to page 8 in the maintenance section of the Hamilton Hopper Manual (document #101-0010), available in the Downloads section of this website.
What should I do if the hopper is under/over paying?
The payout switch may be out of adjustment, or debris may have collected near the payout switch.
Refer to page 14 in the maintenance section of the Hamilton Hopper Manual (document #101-0010), available in the Downloads section of this website.
Can the counter on the hopper be easily replaced?
Yes. There are two (2) small screws that attach the counter to the hopper. Remove the screws to release the counter from the hopper, and then disconnect the two-pin molex that attaches the counter to the wiring harness.
How do I convert a quarter hopper to dispense tokens or $1 coins?
Simply changing the pinwheel converts the hopper to dispense different sized coins. Refer to page 18 in the Hamilton Hopper Manual (document #101-0010) to determine the size wheel needed for the appropriate coin(s).
It may also be necessary to change the payout on the controller. Refer to the switch settings appendix in the C2000 Manual (document #101-0009).
