IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS

To prevent personal injury or property damage, read and follow all instructions and warnings.

When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should always be followed including the following:

Read all instructions, including these important safeguards and the care and use instructions in this manual.

Do not use appliance for other than intended use.

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

The use of accessory attachments not recommended by Focus Electrics may result in fire, electric shock or injury to persons.

Do not operate when the appliance is not working properly or when it has been damaged in any manner. For service information see warranty page.

Do not attempt to repair this appliance yourself.

For household use only.

To prevent burns, personal injury or property damage, read and follow all instructions and warnings.

HEAT PRECAUTIONS

Do not touch hot surfaces. Use handles or knobs where provided. Use hot pads or oven mitts when handling hot surfaces.

Do not move an appliance containing hot water, coffee or other hot liquids.

Do not refill the water reservoir while the appliance is on. Turn the machine off and allow to cool before refilling with water.

Make sure glass carafe is in place when brewing coffee. If the glass carafe is not in place hot water or hot coffee will overflow.

Do not remove any part of the coffeemaker, other than carafe; during the brew cycle as scalding could occur.

The lid of the carafe must be in place and properly positioned on the coffee carafe during the brew process or hot water or hot coffee may overflow.

Always use the proper grind of coffee. Too fine of a grind could clog the filter and cause hot water or hot coffee to overflow.

To prevent electrical shock, personal injury or property damage, read and follow all instructions and warnings.

ELECTRICITY PRECAUTIONS

To protect against fire, electric shock and injury to persons, do not immerse cord, plugs, or other electric parts in water or other liquids.

Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug.

Do not use this appliance outdoors.

Do not plug cord into wall outlet unless power switch is in OFF position.

Always switch to OFF and unplug the appliance from electrical outlet when not in use and before cleaning. Allow to cool before putting on or taking off parts and before cleaning.

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

Longer detachable power-supply cords or extension cords are available and may be used if care is exercised in their use. While use of an extension cord is not recommended, if you must use one, the marked electrical rating of the detachable power-supply cord or extension cord should be at least as great as the electrical rating of the appliance. If the appliance is of the grounded type, the extension cord should be a grounding-type 3-wire cord. The cord should be arranged so that it will not drape over the counter top or tabletop where it can be pulled by children or tripped over.

This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). To reduce the risk of electric shock, this plug is intended to fit into a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully into the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do not attempt to modify the plug in any way.

Do not use an outlet or extension cord if the plug fits loosely or if the outlet or extension cord feels hot.

Keep the cord away from hot parts of the appliance and hot surfaces during operation.

3

To prevent burns or other personal injuries to children, read and follow all instructions and warnings.

PRECAUTIONS FOR USE AROUND CHILDREN

Close supervision is always necessary when any appliance is used by or near children.

Do not allow children to operate or be near the Drip Coffeemaker, as the outside surfaces are hot during use.

Do not allow cord to hang over any edge where a child can reach it. Arrange cord to avoid pulling, tripping or entanglement.

GLASS CARAFE CAUTIONS

The carafe is designed for use with this appliance only. Do not use the carafe provided with this appliance for any other appliance or application.

Do not place carafe on hot surfaces, a range top, or in a heated oven.

Do not put a hot carafe on a wet or cold surface.

Do not use a cracked carafe or a carafe having a loose or weakened handle.

Do not clean carafe with cleansers, steel wool pads, or other abrasive materials.

SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS

USING YOUR DRIP COFFEEMAKER – FIRST USE

1.Place appliance on dry, level, heat-resistant surface, away from any edge.

2.Plug cord into a 120 volt AC electric outlet only.

3.We recommend that you get familiar with all parts of your coffee machine before using it for the first time. Read all instructions, cautions and notes before using the appliance.

4.Wash all loose parts in warm soapy water, rinse thoroughly and dry.

5.To remove any manufacturing residuals that may reside in the appliance, we recommend making at least one full pot with water only, no coffee grounds.

A small amount of smoke and/or odor may occur upon heating due to the release of manufacturing oils – this is normal.

Some minor expansion/contraction sounds may occur during heating and cooling – this is normal.

4

USING YOUR DRIP COFFEEMAKER – PREPARING COFFEE

1.Place appliance on dry, level, heat-resistant surface, away from any edge.

2.Plug cord into a 120 volt AC electric outlet only.

3.Open the hinged water reservoir and pour in the desired quantity of clean cool water for the number of cups you are brewing. Never pour more water into the reservoir than the marked maximum level. For maximum flavor do not use warm or hot water to fill reservoir.

4.Place a #4 cone paper coffee filter into the brew basket. Add desired amount of coffee into the filter. We recommend one measure (measuring spoon provided) of ground coffee for every two cups of brewed coffee to start. After using your coffeemaker a few times, adjust the amount of coffee to suit your own taste. Do not use more than a total of ½ cup of coffee grounds due to possible flooding. NOTE: The coffee grind should be appropriate for a “drip” coffeemaker. Do not use coffee that is ground to a powder like consistency as this will prevent water from passing through the coffee and may cause hot water/coffee overflow.

5.Close the reservoir cover.

6.Place the coffee carafe with lid in position on the warming plate. Make sure coffee carafe sits flat on inside circle of warming plate. NOTE: The lid of the carafe must be in place and properly positioned on the coffee carafe during the brew process or hot water or hot coffee may overflow.

7.Turn the coffeemaker to the ON position. The indicator light will illuminate indicating that the brewing process has begun. NOTE: The coffee will not brew unless the carafe is in place. Ensure the carafe is in place before turning coffeemaker on.

Glass Carafe Model – As long as the indicator light is illuminated, the coffee will be kept warm. The coffeemaker is designed to automatically turn off after 2- hours of keep warm. After the 2-hour keep warm period, the coffee maker and indicator light will turn off.

Thermal Carafe Model – The thermal carafe model turns off automatically and the indicator light will turn off as soon as the brew cycle is complete. There is no keep warm period; the thermal carafe will keep the coffee warm for hours.

8.Unplug cord from electrical outlet after use and allow the Coffeemaker to cool completely before cleaning.

Pause 'n Serve Feature: The Pause 'n Serve Feature allows you to pour a cup of coffee during the brewing process. For optimum flavor, allow half the quantity of coffee to finish brewing before removing carafe. Return the carafe as soon as possible so the coffee may continue to brew. The brew stop feature will not allow the coffeemaker to brew unless the carafe is in place. To prevent scald injury, do not remove any part of coffeemaker, other than carafe, during the brew cycle.

CLEANING YOUR DRIP COFFEEMAKER

1.Switch coffeemaker off and unplug from electrical outlet. Allow the entire unit to cool before cleaning.

2.Remove and discard used grounds and disposable filter from the brew basket.

3.Clean the brew basket, carafe and cover in a solution of warm water and mild liquid soap. Rinse thoroughly. These parts may also be cleaned in an automatic dishwasher, top rack only.

4.If there is water left in the water reservoir, empty through the top opening of the unit by turning upside down over a sink.

5.The exterior of the coffeemaker can be wiped clean with a damp cloth after it has been unplugged and the base is cooled.

Do not clean the inside of the water reservoir with a cloth or paper towel. This may leave particles in the chambers that may clog small openings in your coffeemaker. Rinse with cold water periodically.

Decalcify the Drip Coffeemaker periodically. See the “Decalcifying Your Drip Coffeemaker” section in this manual.

6

DECALCIFYING YOUR DRIP COFFEEMAKER

The coffeemaker must be decalcified periodically. Over time, mineral deposits build up on internal parts and effect the operation of the appliance. The frequency of decalcification depends on the hardness of your water and how often you use the Drip Coffeemaker. Indications that decalcifying is necessary are:

o Increased noise during production o Excessive steaming

o Longer brewing times

oThe pumping action stops before all of the water has been pumped from the water reservoir

If usage is regular, decalcifying should be carried out as follows:

oWith soft water, decalcify once per year

o With medium water, decalcify every 3 months

oWith hard water, decalcify monthly

We recommend the use of vinegar for decalcifying.

1.Pour 20 ounces (4-cup mark on coffee carafe) of fresh, cool undiluted white household vinegar into the coffee carafe. Make sure the coffee filter basket and coffee carafe cover are properly positioned. NOTE: Do not use coffee grounds and do not dilute vinegar with water.

2.Follow steps 4-7 in “Using Your Drip Coffeemaker – Preparing Coffee” section of this manual.

3.Repeat the process above except use clear cool water in place of vinegar to rinse any remaining traces of the vinegar from the system. Rinse twice using clean cool water each time.
