Yes there is no way to get to that lock without opening the box there is no replacement lock for this you will need to get the coin box assembly. If the key will not turn, the only thing you can do is to order the box and replace it. This is the box. CLICK HERE.
What I would try first is spraying the lock with WD-40 with the key in it the key in it if you can't get it out, also try tilting the machine back while you turn the key. Let me know if this works, I will see what other info I can get for you.
I did give a good rating, my results were that the disc that turns the slide on the locking mech has 2 pins, one of these pins came out of the slot, which left the one slide wedged, so when i turned the key to open it with force it wedged against the plate. I took side plate of the box, used a screw driver to move the coin box side to side, and it was able to push the side of the lock that was part unlocked forward and out which allowed the other side to slide open. took lock apart and reset pins on to plate and tighten the mech . cause of problem nut on mech. was loose.
Great, I'm glad I could help and I'm glad you got it open, and thank you for using this service.
