IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS

Follow these basic safety precautions when using electrical appliances to reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, and/or personal injury:

Read all instructions.

Do not touch hot surfaces. Use handles or knobs.

To protect against electric shock, do not place cord, plug, or brewer in water or liquid.

Close supervision is necessary when the brewer is used by or near children.

Unplug from outlet when not in use for extended periods of time and before cleaning. Allow to cool before putting on or taking off parts, and before cleaning.

Do not operate the brewer with a damaged cord or plug, or after the brewer malfunctions or has been damaged

in any manner. Return the brewer to an Authorized Service Facility for

examination, adjustment, or repair. (Refer to page 24)

The use of an accessory not evaluated for use with this brewer may cause injuries and is not authorized.

For indoor use only. Do not use outdoors.

Do not let the power cord hang over edge of table or counter, or touch hot surfaces.

Do not place the brewer on or near a hot gas or electric burner, or in a heated oven.

Do not use brewer for other than its intended use.

Do not insert or remove pod holder while brewing. Press the coffee or tea button to stop or cancel a brew cycle.

A canceled brew cycle is not held in memory. The next brew cycle will dispense full volume based on the volume setting.

To avoid container overflow, empty mug before each brew cycle.

Never place hands directly under the pod holder. Hot water and steam can be present.

Do not place brewer in a sink or near other water source. Remove reservoir and fill separately or use the slide lid.

When the brewer is idle, the lid should be in the closed position.

Always use a mug or bowl that is larger than the brew volume selected.

Keep hands away if container overflows. Wait until brew finishes, let liquid cool, then lower volume setting or use a larger mug.

Never brew without the pod holder insert in place. Excessive pressure on the pod could result in coffee or tea escaping from the holder and into the container. Hot liquid splash and burns could occur.

Use cold water only.

Do not place torn pods or use ground coffee in pod holder.

SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS

• A short power-supply cord is used to reduce the risks resulting from becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord.

• If an extension cord is used, the marked electrical rating of the extension cord should be at least as great as the electrical rating of the brewer, and the cord should be arranged so that it will not hang over the edge of the table or counter where it can be pulled on by children or tripped over.

• The extension cord must be of the grounding type, 3-wire cord. (Including grounding conductor).

• If the power cord is ever damaged, it must be replaced by the manufacturer or authorized service personnel with a special cord available form the manufacturer or its authorized service personnel in order to avoid a hazard. Improper electrical installation will damage electronic components. Damage caused by incorrect electrical connections is not covered by warranty.

GENERAL INFORMATION

Improper installation could result in permanent damage and void the limited warranty. Read & follow instructions on page 9 or 10.

Use CAUTION when dispensing hot water from the brewer. The water from your BUNN® Pod brewer is approximately 93°C (200°F). This is approximately 10°C (50°F) hotter than the hot water from your faucet and must be handled with care.

This brewer is designed to remain plugged in at all times (except during initial installation, cleaning, or when brewer will not be used for an extended period of time).

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

Whenever the brewer has been shut off or unplugged for an extended period of time, rinse the reservoir and refill with fresh cold water before using. It is also recommended that the brewer be cycled. (See page 17)

Your BUNN® Pod brewer has a specially designed tank to keep the water inside at the proper temperature. This constant supply of hot water assures the correct method of brewing in less than one minute.

When inserting a pod into the pod holder, it is important to seat the pod all the way into the holder cavity. Leaks could occur if the pod is too large, or does not seat completely into the holder cavity. Ensure that all of the paper edge and any tabs of the pod are inserted into the holder cavity.

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

International brewers are equipped with a 230 volt, grounded cord set. The plug is provided with a grounding circuit in compliance with local requirements. This is a safety feature and allows the plug to fit into a properly grounded outlet. If the plug does not fit into the outlet, contact an electrician to update your outlet. Attempting to bypass the safety aspect of this plug will void the warranty.

The sprayhead may become loose over time. Unplug the machine and allow it to cool down before tightening or removing the sprayhead. Use extreme caution not to burn yourself. Tighten or remove the sprayhead with your fingertips. (Refer to page 16)

CAUTION: Never apply force to remove the pod holder. If the holder does not slide out easily, wait 10 minutes and try again. Burns resulting from hot water splash could occur if the holder is forcibly removed from the brewer.

Use CAUTION to avoid burns during consumption of any freshly brewed beverage. Servings are extremely hot.

To stop a brew cycle in process, press the Coffee or Tea button again. (See “Brew Cancel” on Page 8)

When operating the brewer on a standard household outlet, do not attempt to power other appliances on the same circuit. Circuit overload could occur.

Some noise is normal when the water pump is running during a brew cycle.

DEFINITIONS

COMPONENTS

WATER RESERVOIR - Holds reserve water for brewing. The reservoir can be removed and filled separately at a sink or other clean water source or by pouring water through the slide lid. (Holds 1.7 L (46 oz.) to the maximum line.)

SLIDE LID - The slide lid allows access to the reservoir. Water can be poured through the opened lid and into the reservoir without removing the reservoir.

POD HOLDER RELEASE BUTTON - Push to unlock and release the pod holder. When there is power to the brewer, this button will illuminate red in color, showing the trademark BUNN name. This light will go out during a brew cycle and when the brewer has gone into Sleep Mode. (Refer to the “Features” section on page 8 for more information.)

BLUE (BREW) LIGHTS - Blue colored lights are located near the pod holder area and light up to indicate that a brew cycle is in process.

SPRAYHEAD SEAL - The seal keeps water under pressure from escaping, while a brew cycle is in process. If leaks are present during a brew cycle, consult the “Troubleshooting” section on page 18.

SPRAYHEAD - Designed to distribute water evenly across the coffee pod or tea bag/pod to extract the proper flavor.

POD HOLDER INSERT - A color-coded, removable screen designed to allow proper flow rates and steeping capabilities for the type of brew desired.

POD HOLDER - Holds the coffee pod or tea bag/pod.

DRIP TRAY GRATE - A removable part that allows any spilled liquid to drip through into the drip tray.

DRIP TRAY - Removable tray that is designed to catch any spilled liquid.

POWER SWITCH - Turns on and off all electrical service to the brewer. This button is only to be used when the brewer will not be used for several days. (In the “I” position the power is on. In the “O” position the power is off.)

WATER INLET - This fitting allows a quick connect to existing water lines to allow a constant supply of water to the brewer.

VOLUME CONTROL SLIDE LEVER - Adjusts the amount of water dispensed through the pod holder. Sliding it left will produce a smaller serving. Sliding it to the right will produce a larger serving. The brewer will dispense approximately 118 to 355 ml (4 to 12 oz.) in 30 ml (1 oz.) increments.

CONTROL PANEL - Controls for brewing coffee or tea and various indicators are located on the control panel. (FIG. 2) See specific definitions below.

CONTROL PANEL

COFFEE BREW BUTTON - Depress this button to brew a serving of coffee. Pressing it again will cancel a brew cycle in process.
