People also ask, how do you get money out of a gumball machine?

Over time, the coin tray in the base of the machine fills with deposits and must be emptied. To access the tray, the gumball machine must be opened and partially disassembled. Retrieve the coins from a gumball machine so you have the money to buy candy refills. Remove the screw at the very top of the machine.

Subsequently, question is, what can you put in a gumball machine? Other smaller candies or gum will also vend well, including chiclet gum, or candies like Skittles, M&Ms (both plain and peanut), Mike & Ike's, Hot Tamales or smaller pressed sugar candies.

How do candy dispensers work?

The candy is loaded onto a shelf that fits into grooves inside the container and sits on a spring. The container holds the candy in place. As the head tilts back, the small piece pushes the candy off of the shelf so that it is easy for the user to grab. Vending machines are a type of large dispenser.
