ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS

CAUTION - The brewer must be disconnected from the power source until specified in Initial Set-Up.

120V model brewers require 2-wire, grounded service rated 120 volts ac, 15 amp, single phase, 60 Hz. "A" model brewers require 2-wire, grounded service rated 240 volts ac, 10 amp, single phase, 50 Hz. "B" model brewers require 2-wire, grounded service rated 100 volts ac, 15 amp, single phase, 60 Hz. Proceed as follows:

Electrical Hook-Up

CAUTION – Improper electrical installation will damage electronic components.

1.An electrician must provide electrical service as specified.

2.Using a voltmeter, check the voltage and color coding of each conductor at the electrical source.

3.Remove top cover from the brewer.

4.Rotate the control thermostat knob fully counterclockwise to the "OFF" position and replace the top cover.

5.Connect the brewer to the power source.

6.If plumbing is to be hooked up later be sure the brewer is disconnected from the power source. If plumbing has been hooked up, the brewer is ready for Initial Set-Up.

PLUMBING REQUIREMENTS

These brewers must be connected to a cold water system with operating pressure between 20 (138) and 90 psi (620 kPa) from a 12" or larger supply line. A shut-off valve 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 is 14" flare.

NOTE - Bunn-O-Matic recommends 14" copper tubing for installations of less than 25 feet and 38" for more than 25 feet from the 12" water supply line. A tight coil of copper tubing in the water line will facilitate moving the brewer to clean the countertop. Bunn-O-Matic does 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).

1.Remove the shipping cap from the bulkhead fitting on the bottom of the brewer.

2.Attach the flare fitting from the short piece of tubing on the strainer/flow control (supplied) to the water inlet fitting at the rear of the brewer.

3.Flush the water line and securely attach it to the flare fitting on the strainer/flow control.

4.Turn on the water supply.

INITIAL SET-UP (FILL & HEAT)

CAUTION - The brewer must be disconnected from the power source throughout the Initial Set-Up, except when specified in the instructions.

1.Complete the electrical and plumbing instructions prior to starting this procedure.

2.Remove the top panel and check that the thermostat dial is rotated fully counterclockwise to the “OFF” position.

3.Set the delay dial at eight minutes. Replace top panel. Plug in brewer.

4.Remove the filter screen and metal ferrule from the funnel to speed this procedure. Insert the funnel into the funnel rail and push it until it stops. Rotate the funnel handle to the left or right (T6) to align the funnel discharge over the hole in the reservoir cover. (Model T3 funnel does not rotate.)

5.Turn the ON/OFF switch (T3) to “ON” or SELECTOR switch (T6) to the “LEFT” or “RIGHT” and momentarily depress the start switch. Water will immediately start flowing into the water tank and will automatically shut off at the end of three minutes. Depress the start switch again. During the second period the tank will fill to its capacity and the excess will flow from the sprayhead and out of the funnel.

6.Wait until the flow stops then turn the ON/OFF or SELECTOR switch to the “OFF” position.

7.Rotate the thermostat fully clockwise, (“ON”) and wait for the water tank to stabilize at its proper temperature. During this period some water will come out of the funnel due to expansion, this will not occur thereafter.

8.Turn the ON/OFF switch (T3) to “ON” or SELECTOR switch (T6) to the “LEFT” or “RIGHT” and depress the start switch to cycle the control thermostat.

9.Wait until the flow stops then turn the ON/OFF or SELECTOR switch to the “OFF” position.

10.The brewer is now ready for initial timer adjustment.

INITIAL TIMER ADJUSTMENT

1.Complete the initial fill and heat instructions prior to starting this procedure.

2.With the filter screen and metal ferrule removed from the funnel, water will flow quickly from the funnel and speed this procedure. Insert the funnel into the funnel rails and push it until it stops. Rotate the funnel handle to the left or right (T6) to align the funnel discharge over the hole in the reservoir cover. (Model T3 funnel does not rotate.)

3.Check the delay dial is at eight minutes and the dilution dial is at three minutes and forty-five seconds.

4.Empty the tea reservoir of any water that may have accumulated.

5.Turn the ON/OFF switch to “ON” (T3), or the SELECTOR switch to “LEFT” or “RIGHT”, (T6), and momentarily depress the start switch. After a few seconds water should flow from the funnel into the reservoir. Allow this to continue until it stops and immediately turn the ON/OFF or SELECTOR switch to “OFF”.

6.Measure the water collected in the reservoir. It should equal seventy-six ounces. If it is less or more than this amount, adjust the brew timer accordingly (See Adjusting Brew Volumes) and repeat Steps 5 and 6 until you get the proper amount.

7.Rotate the delay dial fully counterclockwise to speed this next procedure. Drain the reservoir.

8.Momentarily depress the start switch and allow both the concentrate and dilution cycles to occur. When all water stops flowing, the level in the reservoir should be in the middle of the two lower stud heads that hold the dilution water nozzle in place. If it is not correct, rotate the dilution dial up or down accordingly and repeat this step until the proper level is achieved.

9.Return the delay dial to eight minutes.

INITIAL TIMER ADJUSTMENT (cont.)

10.Install the ferrule and screen in the funnel. Load the funnel with a BUNN® paper filter and approximately four ounces of loose tea leaves. Depress the start button to brew tea and observe the funnel drip out and the dilution streams near the end of the cycle. The dilution stream should stop approximately thirty seconds after the drip out has stopped.

11.If this does not happen, load the funnel with a fresh filter and tea, rotate the delay dial up or down accordingly and repeat Step 10 until proper timing is achieved.

12.Replace the top panel. The brewer is now ready for normal operation.

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 every two-second interval 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.

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” (lower). 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

A. ON/OFF SWITCH (T3 ONLY)

ON - Placing the switch in the"ON" (left) position allows the start switch to activate a timed brew cycle for three gallons of tea.

OFF - Placing the switch in the "OFF" (right) position stops the brew cycle. 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. The switch should always be placed in this position after a brew cycle and whenever the brewer is unattended.

OPERATING CONTROLS (cont.)

B. SELECTOR SWITCH (T6 ONLY)

Placing the selector switch in the "ON" (left or right) position allows the start switch to activate a timed brew cycle for three gallons of tea. It also selects into which reservoir dilution water will be introduced. This switch should always be in the "OFF" (center) position after a brew cycle or when the brewer is unattended.

C. START SWITCH

Starts a brew cycle when the ON/OFF or SELECTOR switch is in the "ON" position.

CLEANING

CAUTION - CLEAN AND SANITIZE YOUR ICED TEA BREWER DAILY

1.Remove and thoroughly clean the entire brew funnel. The funnel tip and screen must be free from any tea particles or residue. Reassemble the funnel.

2.Place the ON/OFF or SELECTOR switch in the "OFF” position. Remove and thoroughly rinse the sprayhead. The holes must be open and clear of any mineral deposits. Wipe the sprayhead panel clean with a damp cloth.

3.Insert the deliming spring into the sprayhead fitting until no more than two inches is visible and move it in and out 5 or 6 times. Insert the spring into the airvent hole in the sprayhead panel and move it in and out 5 or 6 times. Reattach the sprayhead.

4.Twist the faucet shank nut in a clockwise direction and remove the faucet from the brewer.

5.Thoroughly clean the entire inside surface of the reservoir, the surfaces behind the reservoir rim, and the faucet with a brush using a mild detergent and water solution. Rinse the reservoir and shank in warm water,

6.Disassemble the faucet. The faucet cleaning procedure requires a three compartment sink. Thoroughly wash all faucet parts in a mild detergent and water solution in the first sink. Rinse the parts in hot water in the second sink. Sanitize the parts for one minute in 75o warm chlorine solution (at least 50 ppm) in the third sink. Reassemble the faucet and attach it to the brewer.

7.Sanitize all exposed surfaces of the reservoir with a 75o warm chlorine solution (at least 100 ppm). Empty the reservoir, insert the brew funnel and thoroughly rinse everything by running two complete brew cycles, empty the reservoir after each brew cycle.

8.Wash the entire outside surface of the brewer with a clean damp cloth.

CAUTION - DO NOT KEEP BREWED ICED TEA OVERNIGHT. THE SERVER MUST BE CLEANED DAILY.

TEA BREWING

1.Begin each brew cycle with a clean empty brew funnel and reservoir(s).

2.Insert a BUNN® filter into the funnel.

3.Pour the packet of loose fresh tea leaves into the filter. Approximately four ounces is recommended.

4.Level the bed of tea leaves by gently shaking.

5.Slide the funnel into the funnel rails until it stops. On T6 brewers, fully rotate the funnel handle to the left or right to align the funnel discharge over the selected reservoir.

6.Place the ON/OFF or SELECTOR switch in the “ON” position.

7.Momentarily press the start switch.

CAUTION - The funnel contains hot liquids. Remove funnel slowly.

8.Carefully remove the brew funnel and discard the used filter when tea no longer drips from the funnel tip.

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.

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
