    Theres coins jammed in there. Tip mc back and twist the filter left to right to unjam it, it should undo freely once it's out.

    A big thank you.

    Followed your instructions. Turned out to be a jammed nylon stocking!

    I am back in the game.

    Thanks again. Merry Christmas

    You frightened me for a minute there.
    We had the same machine installed two days ago.
    Must stop wearing my nylon stockings then. :(
    Merry Christmas
