just purchased a red hot x machine it didnt come with a manual so im pretty stuck

the issue im having is when i put  a pound coin in it will fall in to the cabinet where the second hopper would be. i dont know if i messed a setting up on the machine when i changed the volume. 

i have tried dumping the float and had the coin mech apart but nothing seems to work. 

the machine will only take a single pound coin it will give me the credits but will not take another until the credit has gone but coins going into cabinet not hopper. 


hope someone can shed some light as im lost, new to owning fruit machines

It could have dip switch set to single coin entry.
Does the mech have a routing plug?.
A black plug with curly wires coming out.

Sounds to me like the routing plug is set to divert coins to the opposite chute. They have two hoppers and it looks like your routing plug is set wrong. Pics of inside would be better so we can see if anything's moved.
Hold the bells mate.

On mpu itself there is green test button which need to press with top door open once have door open on display then press green test button get into test menu if coins going to wrong place show the hopper layout see where hopper is as show you right route plug if still need one

just a update 


found out the single coin entry was the dil switches set wrong

contacted seller and he believes the coin routing issue was an error on his part so im assuming its the routing plug just waiting to here back from him.

thank you all for your replies and suggestions

Here's a manual for your machine - it's the only one I could find, it doesn't give dip settings unfortunately.
