PLUMBING REQUIREMENTS

These brewers must be connected to a cold water system with operating pressure between 20 and 90 psi (138 620 kPa) from a 12" or larger supply line. Ashut-offvalve should be installed in the line before the brewer. Install a regulator in the line when pressure is greater than 90 psi (620 kPa) to reduce it to 50 psi (345 kPa). The water inlet fitting is14" flare.

NOTE - Bunn-O-Maticrecommends14" copper tubing for installations of less than 25 feet and38" for more than 25 feet from the12" water supply line. A tight coil of copper tubing in the water line will facilitate moving the brewer to clean the countertop.Bunn-O-Maticdoes not recommend the use of a saddle valve to install the brewer. The size and shape of the hole made in the supply line by this type of device may restrict water flow.

This equipment must be installed to comply with the Basic Plumbing Code of the Building Officials and Code Administrators International, Inc. (BOCA)

and the Food Service Sanitation Manual of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

INITIAL SET-UP

CAUTION - The brewer must be disconnected from the power source throughout the initialset-up,except when specified in the instructions.

1.Insert an empty funnel into the funnel rails.

2.Place an empty dispenser under the funnel.

3.Place the heater switch at the rear of the brewer in the “OFF” lower position.

4.Connect the brewer to the power source, place the "ON/OFF" switch in the "ON" upper position, and momentarily press and release the start switch. Water will begin flowing into the tank. When water stops flowing into the tank, initiate a second and a third brew cycle. During the third brew cycle the tank will fill to its capacity and the excess will flow from the sprayhead, out of the funnel, and into the dispenser.

5.When the flow of water from the funnel stops, place the heater switch at the rear of the brewer in the “ON” upper position and wait approximately twenty minutes for the water in the tank to heat to the proper temperature. Some water will drip from the funnel during this time, this is due to expansion and should not occur thereafter.

6.Empty the dispenser and initiate another brew cycle. Place the "ON/OFF" switch in the "ON" upper position, and momentarily press and release the start switch.

7.Place the "ON/OFF" switch in the lower “OFF” position after water has stopped flowing from the funnel, and let the water in the tank reheat to the proper temperature.

8.Empty the dispenser and place the "ON/OFF" switch in the "ON" upper position, and momentarily press and release the start switch. Check the water volume in the dispenser after water has stopped flowing from the funnel. It should be 64 ounces.

9.If not, disconnect the brewer from the power source, remove the front panel, and adjust the brew timer as required. See Adjusting Brew Volumes . Replace the front panel, connect the brewer to the power source, and allow the water to reheat, start, and measure another brew cycle.

10.Repeat step 9 until 64 oz water volume is achieved.

11.The brewer is now ready for use in accordance with the coffee brewing instructions on the next page.

ADJUSTING BREW VOLUMES

CAUTION - Disconnect the power source from the brewer prior to the removal of any panel for the replacement or adjustment of any component.

NOTE: Prior to setting or modifying batch sizes, check that the brewer is connected to water supply, the tank is properly filled, and a funnel and server are in place.

1.Modifying batch sizes. To modify a batch volume, first check that the SET/LOCK switch is in the “SET” position on the circuit board.

To increase a batch size. Press and hold the START or BREW switch until three clicks are heard. Release the switch (Failure to release the switch within two seconds after the third click causes the volume setting to be aborted and previous volume setting will remain in memory) and press it again one or more times. Each time the switch is pressed, two seconds are added to the brew time period. Allow the brew cycle to finish in order to verify that the desired volume has been achieved.

To decrease a batch size. Press and release the START or BREW switch once for everytwo-secondinterval to be removed from the total brew time period; then immediately press and hold down the START or BREW switch until three clicks are heard. Release the switch. (Failure to release the switch within two seconds after the third click causes the volume setting to be aborted and previous volume setting will remain in memory). Allow the brew cycle to finish in order to verify that the desired volume has been achieved.

ADJUSTING BREW VOLUMES(cont)

2.Setting batch sizes. To set a batch volume, first check that the SET/LOCK switch is in the “SET” position on the circuit board. Press and hold the START or BREW switch until three distinct clicks are heard, and then release the switch. (Failure to release the switch within two seconds after the third click causes the volume

setting to be aborted and previous volume setting will remain in memory). View the level of the liquid being dispensed. When the desired level is reached, turn the ON/OFF switch to “OFF”. The brewer remembers this volume and will continue to brew batches of this size until the volume setting procedure is repeated.

NOTE: When brewing coffee, batch volumes will decrease due to absorption by the coffee grounds.

3.Setting programming disable feature. If it becomes necessary to prevent anyone from changing brew times once programmed, you can set the SET/LOCK switch to the “LOCK” position. This will prevent any programming to be done until switch is once again placed in the “SET” position.

OPERATING CONTROLS

ON/OFF SWITCH

Placing the "ON/OFF" switch in the "OFF" lower position stops brewing. Stopping a brew cycle after it has been started will not stop the flow of water into the funnel until the tank syphons down to its proper level. Placing the switch in the "ON" upper position supplies power to the brew station warmer and enables the brew circuit.

START SWITCH

Momentarily pressing and releasing the switch starts a brew cycle when the "ON/OFF" switch is in the "ON" upper position.

NOTE – The "ON/OFF" switch must be in the "ON" upper position to initiate and complete a brew cycle.

COFFEE BREWING

1.Insert a BUNN® filter into the funnel.

2.Pour the fresh coffee into the filter and level the bed of grounds by gently shaking.

3.Slide the funnel into the funnel rails.

4.Place an empty dispenser beneath the funnel.

5.Place the "ON/OFF" switch in the "ON" upper position. Momentarily press and release the start switch.

6.When brewing is completed, simply discard the grounds and filter.

CLEANING

1.The use of a damp cloth rinsed in any mild, non-abrasive,liquid detergent is recommended for cleaning all surfaces onBunn-O-Maticequipment.

2.Check and clean the sprayhead. The sprayhead holes must always remain open.

3.With the sprayhead removed, insert the deliming spring (provided) all the way into the sprayhead tube. When inserted properly, no more than two inches of spring should be visible. Saw back and forth five or six times.

NOTE – In hard water areas, this may need to be done daily. It will help prevent liming problems in the brewer and takes less than a minute.

TROUBLESHOOTING

A troubleshooting guide is provided to suggest probable causes and remedies for the most likely problems encountered. If the problem remains after exhausting the troubleshooting steps, contact the Bunn-O-MaticTechnical Service Department.

Inspection, testing, and repair of electrical equipment should be performed only by qualified service personnel.

All electronic components have 120 volt ac and low voltage dc potential on their terminals. Shorting of terminals or the application of external voltages may result in board failure.

Intermittent operation of electronic circuit boards is unlikely. Board failure will normally be permanent. If an intermittent condition is encountered, the cause will likely be a switch contact or a loose connection at a terminal or crimp.

Solenoid removal requires interrupting the water supply to the valve. Damage may result if solenoids are energized for more than ten minutes without a supply of water.

The use of two wrenches is recommended whenever plumbing fittings are tightened or loosened. This will help to avoid twists and kinks in the tubing.

Make certain that all plumbing connections are sealed and electrical connections tight and isolated.

This brewer is heated at all times. Keep away from combustibles.

WARNING – • Exercise extreme caution when servicing electrical equipment.

Unplug the brewer when servicing, except when electrical tests are specified.

Follow recommended service procedures

Replace all protective shields or safety notices
