Hello and thanks for using this service! If you are a JA Member I would like to personally thank you and welcome you back! I am Appliance Guru an extremely experienced tech on the site and I try to get to as many customers as I can. NOTE it takes time for me to type research and add links so please wait for me to respond back I can only do this so fast. Secondly, I do not know your skill level so please try and let me know if I am going beyond your knowledge or comfort zone thanks! I strive for a 5 star rating from everyone especially our JA members.


You have to bring the coin box and service door to a local locksmith to see what locks are used. They can make you the service door key but the coin box key will have to be ordered from the supplier for the lock on the coin box. There are a few Medeco, DUO and a couple others. Then you can get one ordered.

All I ask is please use the Star Rating Link at the top of your page before leaving, that is the only way I am credited through the site, tips are appreciated.

U can't get any of that information from the serial number, or model #. I already went to the lock smith after I paid 65$ for a universal key that wouldn't work. And they said I couldn't help me. I'm in a rural area and the drive would take 3 hours one way. Is that the only solution u have.

Can you take a picture of the coin box and upload it here?

That should be an ESD coin box, call this place to see if they can get you a key, worst case scenario buy a box with new keys from them....The service door key they can easily take care of
