OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

1.On the CDS control panel, make the following switch settings:

a)POWER- "ON"

b)DAY/NIGHT- "DAY"

2.Pull the Powder Auto-Fill fully forward on its support rails and open the door.

3.Fill the Powder Auto-Fill product hopper as follows:

a)Pull the slide gate closed on the Powder Auto-Fill product hopper elbow and remove the hopper from the Powder Auto-Fill.

b)Remove the lid from the product hopper and fill the hopper with a powdered granita mix.

c)Install the product hopper into the Powder AutoFill. Insure hopper is fully seated behind retainer plates.

d)Push the slide gate on the hopper ejector elbow to the open position.

4.Place the ON/OFF switch at the Powder Auto-Fill whipper panel to "ON".

5.After allowing 5 seconds for the Powder Auto-Fill to initialize, observe the door lamp. The door lamp should not be lit. If the door lamp is lit, consult the fault list located on the decal placed on the back of the door. Clear the fault before proceeding.

NOTE: If the Powder Auto-Fill is being used for the first time with the selected granita mix, perform an adjustment as described in ADJUSTMENTS.

6.Close the Powder Auto-Fill door and observe the following:

a)The door lamp lights steadily.

b)The Powder Auto-Fill begins dispensing liquid granita product.

7.The Powder Auto-Fill will continue to fill the CDS product hopper until the liquid level in the CDS hopper reaches the product level probe or for 5 minutes, which ever occurs first.

8.If the Powder Auto-Fill fails to fill the CDS hopper in 5 minutes, the following will occur:

a)The Powder Auto-Fill will stop dispensing product.

b)The door lamp will flash 4 times about every 2 seconds.

9.After checking the CDS and Powder Auto-Fill setup, the 5 minute refill fault may be cleared by simply opening and closing the Powder Auto-Fill door.

10.Once the product level in the CDS covers the auger, make the following switch settings at the CDS control panel:

a)AUGER - "1".

b)ICE/OFF/NO ICE - "ICE" or "NO ICE" as appropriate for the granita product.

11.From this point onward, the Powder Auto-Fill will continue to automatically refill the CDS hopper, maintaining the CDS product at an approximate 2 gallon level.

12.When the Powder Auto-Fill powder level falls low, the door lamp will cycle ON and OFF, but will continue to dispense product for a preset period. When this period expires, the Powder Auto-Fill will continue to cycle the door lamp ON and OFF and will stop dispensing product.

13.To clear the low product fault, simply refill the powder as follows:

a)Open the Powder Auto-Fill door.

b)Close the hopper slide gate.

c)Remove the product hopper.

d)Refill the product hopper with powdered granita mix.

e)Replace the hopper.

f)Push the slide gate on the hopper ejector elbow to the OPEN position.

g)Close the Powder Auto-Fill door.

ADJUSTMENTS

When using the Powder Auto-Fill with a new powdered granita mix, follow the procedure outlined below to adjust the Powder Auto-Fill to produce the correct recipe.

1.Determine the mix ratio of powdered granita mix. Convert the recipe so that it is expressed in terms of weight units [grams (g), dry ounces (oz), or pounds (lbs)] of powdered granita mix to fluid ounces (fl.oz.) of water [1 gallon (gal) = 128 fl.oz.; 1 liter (l) = 33.8 fl.oz.].

2.The delivery rate of the water ingredient is factory preset to 1 fl.oz. per second. Therefore, it is only necessary to adjust the delivery rate of the powdered granita mix. Adjustment is accomplished as follows:

a) Place the Powder Auto-Fill on top of a fully assembled CDS taking care to align the Powder Auto-Fill guide rails over the rollers on the CDS guide rails.

b) Connect the Powder Auto-Fill power cord to the outlet located on the CDS auger motor cover.

c) Attach a flexible water line to the .25" flare fitting on the back panel of the Powder Auto-Fill.

NOTE: A water strainer assembly (BUNN-O-MATIC #23820.1000) should be installed in line prior to the flexible water line.

d)On the CDS control panel, make the following switch settings:

i)POWER- "ON"

ii)DAY/NIGHT- "DAY"

e)Pull the Powder Auto-Fill fully forward on its support rails

f)Fill the Powder Auto-Fill product hopper as follows:

i)Pull the slide gate closed on the Powder AutoFill product hopper elbow and remove the product hopper from the Powder Auto-Fill.

ii)Remove the lid from the product hopper and fill the hopper with a powdered granita mix.

iii)Install the product hopper into the Powder Auto-Fill.

g)Place the ON/OFF switch at the Powder Auto-Fill whipper panel to "ON".

h)After allowing 5 seconds for the Powder Auto-Fill to initialize, observe the door lamp on the whipper panel. The door lamp should not be lit. If the door lamp is lit, consult the fault list and clear the fault before proceeding.

i)Remove the hole plug on the whipper panel. Using a screwdriver, set potentiometer to approximately mid range.

j)Remove the mixing chamber from the Powder Auto-Fill and place a small container, such as a cup, under the product hopper ejector elbow.

k)Push the slide gate on the product hopper ejector elbow to the OPEN position.

l)Momentarily set the TEST/SERVICE switch on the whipper panel to the TEST position.

m)The hopper motor will run and dispense powdered granita mix for 10 seconds.

n)After the Powder Auto-Fill has finished the 10 second throw test, weigh the dispensed product.

o)Determine the dispense rate of the powdered product (weight units per second) by dividing the measured weight by 10.

p)Compare the measured dispense rate with the mix ratio in step 1.

q)Adjust the MIN/MAX control clockwise to increase the dispense rate or counterclockwise to decrease the dispense rate of the powdered granita mix.

r)Repeat steps l through q as necessary until proper mix ratio is achieved.

s)Replace the mixing chamber removed in step j. Replace hole plug.

3.Once the mix ratio has been adjusted, the Powder Auto-Fill can be run with the door open to allow the user to catch dispensed product for brix testing as follows:

a)Hold a container under the dispense tip of the Powder Auto-Fill.

b)Hold the TEST/SERVICE switch on the whipper panel to the SERVICE position.

c)When the container is filled to the desired level, release the TEST/SERVICE switch.

d)Measure the brix using the appropriate measuring device.

e)Remove the hole plug. Using a screwdriver, adjust the potentiometer clockwise to increase the brix or counterclockwise to decrease the brix of the product. Replace the hole plug.

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-Matic Technical 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.

Keep away from combustibles.

WARNING – • Exercise extreme caution when servicing electrical equipment.

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

Follow recommended service procedures

Replace all protective shields or safety notices
