Not sure about the bill feeder but the sprite was loaded incorrectly, so it wasn't tripping the circuit, the machine works best with a nicely stocked column of soda. I have a feeling the diet coke may be loaded improperly as well, I'll take a look today, turns out loading that stuff is not as easy as it seems.


Thanks for pointing this out.
