Vendo 81 Manual

Service Manuals for Coca-Cola Vendo 81, 44 & 39 Soda Machines

At the Retroplanet.com site we are offering free downloads of PDFs of service manuals for three models of Coca-Cola soda machines from the 1950’s. They are the Vendo 81, 44 and 39. These PDFs can be found at the Retroplanet PDF Library.

Vendo 44 Manual

It is important to note that in the beginning of the manual you will see photos of vending machines that were restored by us at Vintage Vending. They may have been restored to look different from the machine you may have. The rest of the manual PDFs are of the actual manual and schematics. There are also photos and parts lists. Our hope is that these photos are of help to you.

Vendo 39 Manual

The soda machines we have restored are not for sale. We show restored items in this blog to encourage discussion, prompt questions and further the hobby.

    You are so cool to share manuals for free, your site answered the one question we had for getting the Coke machine to open correctly.

    We have an original 1950s never restored and working upright coke machine.

    Hi I have a Vendo Coke machine made in 1981.

    the model seems to be 01C-1981 or perhaps OIC-1981 it is hard to tell the label is pretty worn.

    While the compressor etc. works fine, I can’t get it to vend. Is there a manual available for this machine?

    Thanks so much

    I have an old Coke machine that resembles the Vendo 63 but I’m not sure about the model.
    How can I find out what model it really is?
    I have this machine in my shop at home now and I want to use it but I want to set it up where it will vend free. I would like to know what I need to do to set it this way. The drink box cools great but it needs cleaning up and some light replacements and I also need to know how to get to the front light on the outside of the front door. Can you give me any help?
    Thanks Nancy

    The people at http://www.fun-tronicsllc.com/ may be able to help you. They sell decals and restoration parts for vintage soda machines. If they don’t have what you need, perhaps they can steer you in the right direction. Best of luck with your Vendo.

    The machine you asked about is a Vendo 39. The one above it is a 44 and the one at the top on the post is an 81.
