INTRODUCTION

This equipment will brew a half-gallon batch of coffee into an awaiting dispenser. It is only for indoor use on a sturdy counter or shelf.

WARRANTY

Bunn-O-Matic Corp. (“Bunn”) warrants the equipment manufactured by it to be commercially free from defects in material and workmanship existing at the time of manufacture and appearing within one year from the date of installation. In addition:

1.) Bunn warrants electronic circuit and/or control boards to be commercially free from defects in material and workmanship for two years from the date of installation.

2.) Bunn warrants the compressor on refrigeration equipment to be commercially free from defects in material and workmanship for two years from the date of installation.

3.) Bunn warrants that the grinding burrs on coffee grinding equipment will grind coffee to meet original factory screen sieve analysis for three years from date of installation or for 30,000 pounds of coffee, whichever comes first.

This warranty does not apply to any equipment, component or part that was not manufactured by Bunn or that, in Bunn’s judgement, has been affected by misuse, neglect, alteration, improper installation or operation, improper maintenance or repair, damage or casualty.

THE FOREGOING WARRANTY IS EXCLUSIVE AND IS IN LIEU OF ANY OTHER WARRANTY, WRITTEN OR ORAL, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF EITHER MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS

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

The brewer requires 2-wire, grounded service rated 220 - 240 volts ac, 20 amp, single phase, 50 Hz. An all pole disconnect means must be incorporated in the fixed wiring according to local wiring regulations. 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 the front panel beneath the sprayhead.

4.Feed the cord through the strain relief and connect it to the terminal block.

5.Connect the brewer to the power source and verify the voltage at the terminal block before proceeding. Replace the front panel.

INITIAL SET-UP

CAUTION - The brewer must be disconnected from the power source throughout the initial set-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.Pour three pitchers of tap water into the screened area on top of the brewer. Allow approximately two minutes between pitchers for water to flow into the tank. While the third pitcher of water is entering the tank, the tank will fill to capacity and the excess will flow from the sprayhead, out of the funnel, and into the dispenser.

4.Connect the brewer to the power source.

5.When the flow of water from the funnel stops, 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 pour one pitcher of tap water into the screened area on top of the brewer.

7.After water has stopped flowing from the funnel, let the water in the tank reheat to the proper temperature.

8.Empty the dispenser. The brewer is now ready for use in accordance with the coffee brewing instructions below.

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.Pour one pitcher of tap water into the screened area on top of the brewer.

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 on Bunn-O-Matic equipment.

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.

is turned to the "OFF" position.

FIG. 2 CONTROL THERMOSTAT

P1262

 

Location:

The control thermostat is located inside the trunk on the upper left side of the component bracket.

Test Procedures:

1.Disconnect the brewer from the power source.

2.With a voltmeter, check the voltage across the blue wire on the control thermostat and red insert on terminal block. Connect the brewer to the power source. The indication must be 220 to 240 volts.

3.Disconnect the brewer from the power source.

If voltage is present as described, proceed to #4.

If voltage is not present as described, refer to the Wiring Diagrams and check the brewer wiring harness.

4.Gently remove the capillary bulb and grommet from the tank.

5.With a voltmeter, check the voltage across the black wire of the control thermostat and the red insert on the terminal block, when the control thermostat is turned "ON" (Fully clockwise). Connect the brewer to the power source. The indication must be 220 to 240 volts ac.

6.Disconnect the brewer from the power source.

If voltage is present as described, reinstall the capillary tube into the tank to the line 4.5" above the bulb, the control thermostat is operating properly.

If voltage is not present as described, replace the thermostat.

Removal and Replacement:

1.Remove wires from control thermostat.

2.Remove the thermostat capillary bulb by firmly pulling up on the capillary at the tank lid. This will disengage the grommet from the tank lid.

3.Remove the one #8-32 screw securing the control thermostat to the component bracket inside the trunk.

4.Slide the grommet to the line 4.5" above the bulb on the new capillary tube.

5.Insert the capillary bulb through the hole in the tank lid and press the grommet firmly and evenly so that the groove in the grommet fits into the tank lid.

6.Carefully bend the capillary tube so that the tube and bulb inside the tank are in the vertical position.

NOTE - The capillary tube must be clear of any electrical termination and not kinked.

7.Using one #8-32 screw secure the control thermostat to the component bracket inside the trunk.

8.Refer to Fig. 3 when reconnecting the wires.

9.Adjust the control thermostat as required.
