GENERAL INFORMATION

NOTE - THE BREWER IS NOT READY TO PLUG-IN

Improper installation will result in permanent damage and void the limited warranty. Read & follow the instructions on the next page.

This brewer is designed to remain plugged-inat all times (except during initial installation or when cleaning).

A vacation switch is provided on the lower left side to completely shut-offall electrical components when your plans take you away from home for three or more days. Safety features, designed into the BUNN®coffee brewer, make the daily use of this switch unnecessary.

Whenever the brewer has been shut-offor unplugged, fill the tank with water and allow the water in the tank to heat to the proper temperature before using (about fifteen minutes or until the heating sound stops).

Your BUNN coffee brewer has a specially designed tank to keep the water at the proper temperature. This constant supply of hot water assures the correct method of brewing coffee, in less than three minutes.

The brewed coffee flows into the decanter where it is kept at serving temperature on the porcelain decanter warmer. The warmer is controlled by the lighted on/off switch on the front of the brewer.

NOTE- The warmer switchonly controls the decanter warmer.

While coffee is being brewed, the newest water in the tank is heated to the proper temperature and held until needed.

The decanter lid reduces coffee evaporation and temperature loss.

Hot water, approximately 50°F hotter than that available from your hot water faucet, is always available for other uses.

The brewer is equipped with a polarized cordset. One blade of the plug is slightly larger than the other. This is a safety feature and allows the plug to fit into the outlet only one way. If you are unable to insert the plug into the outlet, try turning it over. If the plug still does not fit, contact an electrician to update your outlet. Do not attempt to bypass the safety aspect of this polarized plug.

The sprayhead will periodically become loose. Using extreme caution not to burn yourself, retighten the sprayhead with your finger tips.

NOTE- A severe burn may result if the sprayhead becomes loose and falls off while brewing.

PREPARING THE BREWER FOR USE

NOTE - THE BREWER IS NOT READY TOPLUG-IN.

Raise the hinged flip-lid.

P-199

Slide an empty brew funnel into the brewer under the warmer switch and place an empty decanter on the warmer. Pour two pitchers of water (filled to the 48 oz line) into the screened area on top of the brewer. Wait two minutes between pitchers to allow the water to fill the tank. When the tank is full, some water will flow through the funnel and into the decanter.

48 oz

P-196

Close the lid and plug-inthe brewer.

P-214

Press the bottom of the vacation switch, located on the lower left side of the brewer, to the "ON" position.

The vacation switch controls power to the tank heater. Initially you will have to wait approximately fifteen

minutes in order for the water to reach brew temperature.

Empty any water that has collected in the decanter.

You’re not done yet! The next page leads you through the five easy steps to ‘BREWING DELICIOUS COFFEE’

BREWING DELICIOUS COFFEE

Insert a BUNN® coffee filter into the brew funnel. (Be sure to use BUNN coffee filters for proper brewing. There is a difference.)

P-206

Measure coffee into the filter and gently shake to level the bed of grounds.

P-205

Make sure that the sprayhead is tight. Slide the brew funnel into the brewer under the warmer switch. Snap the decanter cover on the empty decanter and place the decanter on the warmer beneath the brew funnel. Place the lighted warmer switch in the "ON" position.

P-216

Raise the hinged flip-lidand pour water into the top of the brewer. The water pitcher, supplied, will yield approximately eight 6 ounce cups of brewed coffee when filled to the 48 oz line. Your BUNNPour-Omaticwill begin brewing coffee immediately.

48 oz

P-196

When brewing has stopped, remove the brew funnel and discard the filter and grounds. Do not touch hot grounds.

P-215

HOT WATER

The same basic steps can be used to obtain hot water by omitting the filter and coffee. The water from your BUNN coffee brewer is approximately 200° F. This is hotter than the hot water from your faucet and must be handled with care.

COFFEE FUNDAMENTALS

Brewing delicious coffee is similar to cooking any favorite food. Both require a good recipe. Proper coffee making needs quality equipment to precisely control water temperature, volume, and brew time. The BUNN® coffee brewer assures consistency in your recipe by controlling all of these elements. The only variables remaining in the recipe are the grind and amount of coffee used.

The amount of ground coffee is generally determined by the grind. For best results, we recommend a drip (medium) grind.

Hot water extracts many elements from the ground coffee, some desirable, some not. The taste and aroma are referred-toas strength, the acidity as bitterness. Increasing the amount of ground coffee results in a stronger beverage, and decreasing it results in a weaker beverage.

As the amount of ground coffee decreases, you'll note an increase in the bitterness of the beverage. This happens because the hot water begins to remove the undesirable elements such as acidity after all of the desirable tastes and aroma have been removed.

Fresh ground coffee gives the best results. Always store the ground coffee in a cool, dry area away from other food items with strong odors. When stored in a refrigerator, keep it in an airtight container.

BREWING TIPS

When properly brewed, the difference between the best quality ground coffee and a poor quality ground coffee becomes very dramatic. Proper brewing requires little effort with the BUNN coffee brewer.

You'll always have a great coffee experience if you follow these tips:

1)Always start with clean equipment.

2)Always use fresh cold water.

3)Always use BUNN paper coffee filters for proper extraction.

4)Using 2 ounces of fresh drip grind coffee for each full pot (48 oz) will give you a consistently great pot of coffee with a full-bodiedflavor and aroma. However, the real criteria is personal taste.Adjust the recipe until it suits you. If you need to make a smaller batch, experiment with less water and ground coffee.

5)Keep the beverage at the correct serving temperature by setting the decanter on the porcelain warmer. For the freshest flavor, don't keep brewed coffee for longer than an hour.

DECANTER HANDLE MAINTENANCE

Using a phillips screw driver, periodically tighten the screw in the handle.

ROUTINE CLEANING

Rinsing the brew funnel and decanter after each use is the only routine cleaning required. Occasionally, wipe the outside of the brewer including the area above the funnel with a damp cloth. (The brew funnel and decanter are top-rackdishwasher safe.)

P-208

DELIMING

Periodically, you should delime the brewer to clear any deposits that may have accumulated due to impurities in the water source.

NOTE- Unplug the brewer before deliming.

1)Unscrew the sprayhead with your fingertips and set it aside.

2)Insert all but two inches of the flexible deliming spring probe (supplied) through the sprayhead opening.

3)Slide the tool in-and-outfive or six times to loosen mineral deposits collected in the sprayhead tube. Remove it and set it aside.

P-227

4) Check the holes in the sprayhead for mineral deposits. These may be cleared by using a toothpick. Rinse the sprayhead with water before reinstalling.

5) Plug-inthe brewer and allow the water in the tank to

reheat before using. The frequency of deliming depends on the mineral content of your water.

HARD WATER

(Recommended At Least Every Three Months In Hard Water Areas.)

1)Unplug the brewer.

2)Slide an empty brew funnel into the brewer under the warmer switch and center an empty decanter on the warmer.

3)Pour one quart of white vinegar into the top of the brewer.

4)Empty the decanter when liquid stops flowing from the funnel.

5)Plug-inthe brewer and let it set for two hours.

6)Drain all water and loosened sediment from the brewer by following steps 1- 5 of the draining procedure on the next page, then return to step 7, below.

Return to this point after draining, to complete the deliming process.

7)Pour three pitchers of fresh, cold water into the top of the brewer. Empty the decanter between pitchers.

8)Taste the water coming out of the brewer. Pour additional pitchers of fresh, cold water into the brewer as needed until the water has no vinegar taste.

9)Plug-inthe brewer and allow the water in the tank to reach brewing

temperature before using. (approximately 15 minutes.)
