Brewer Assembly
The platinum brewing system is in a class of it’s own in the single cup coffee business and is
specifically designed for Avalon units. Its vacuum extraction process, joined with a high quality filter
paper, brews a coffee of unsurpassed quality to meet the taste profile of the most dicerning coffee
drinkers. Best of all, this is available for every cup of coffee at any time of day. See the following page
for the description of the brewing process.

Brewing Process
Step 1 Ascent of the piston
1
The ground coffee and the water are dispensed into the
brew chamber during the ascension of the piston. This
compresses the air in the cylinder and forces it through the
coffee mixture in the brew chamber thereby agitating the
brewing coffee.
Reference Drawings
2
Step 2 Pauses
Once the piston has reached its top dead point, it will pause to
allow the coffee to brew to the appropriate strength. There will
be one shot of water before the descent to rinse the chamber.
Step 3 Descent of the piston
3
The descent of the piston will create a vacuum thereby extracting
the coffee from the grounds through the filter paper and into the
cylinder. One last pause will be to allow all the coffee to drip from
the brew chamber.
4
Step 4 Product delivery
The piston follows its course heading to its low dead point.
Distribution of coffee through the spout begins once the piston is
below the coffee exit. Meanwhile, the brew chamber lifts to allow
the paper to advance thereby discarding the spent grounds into
the waste chute.

Automatic Safety Features
There are various safety mechanisims on this brewing equipment to prevent a machine malfunction
resulting in material damages.
Water Level Switch and Heater Safety Switch
The water level switch and the heater safety switch work together to ensure that the heating element is
deactivated if there is insufficient water in the tank. The water level switch is controlled by a float and will
shut off the inlet valve when the tank is full. If the level in the tank gets too low, the heater safety switch
will be triggered and the heating element will be turned off.
Overflow Switch
Control & Features
If the water were to boil, the tank water would go into the overflow cup and all machine functions would
be turned off. This is a fatal error. This could also be triggered if the float in the tank was defective or if the
machine was moved while the tank was full. The unit would appear Off.
Overflow Drip Tray
This will be triggered if the drip tray is full or if something is leaking inside the unit. This will deactivate the
water inlet valve thereby preventing the element to heat. The unit would indicate “Drip tray full’.
Software Safety Features
At the time of the first tank fill, the water inlet valve will close after 4.5 minutes of continuous demand. This
is the amount of time necessary to completly fill the tank. After the initial tank fill, the inlet valve will close
after 20 seconds of continuous demand. This safety mechanism is designed to prevent water from flowing
continuously into the machine due to a mechanical malfunction. The unit will indicate “Low water level”
If the low water level switch is triggered but not the heater safety switch, the element will automatically be
shutoff. This is in the event of a mechanical failure of the heater safety switch.

It is important to verify that the float is positioned appropriately in
the overflow cup since it can move around in transportation. If this
float is not in place the switch will not be activated and the unit will
automatically shut down sensing an overflow situation.
It is important to verify that the overflow cup is in place with the
highest side in the front and secured with the tape. If you need
to remove this cup, please make sure that you replace it with
the highest section facing the front and the overflow tube in the
cup. This will ensure that the float will “float” and will activate the
overflow switch if there is a problem.

Water Line Connection
This equipment must be installed in compliance with applicable Federal, State and/or
Municipal plumbing codes having jurisdiction.
Make sure that the equipment is unplugged before proceeding with the water supply
installation. Also verify that the incoming water pressure is greater than 20 psi and no more
than 80 psi.
1. Prior to installing the unit, flush out the water line by running approximately 1 gal. of water into a
pail. This will ensure no sediment from a new installation can get in the unit;
2. The incoming water supply should have a shut-off valve connected in-line. Water supply should be
a plastic 1/4” or 3/8” O.D. dedicated line branched off a larger supply line;
Initial Setup
3. Make sure your water source is turned off. Secure the inlet fitting firmly onto the inlet valve. Do not
overtighten;

Water Temperature
This equipment has a coffee brewing setpoint of 202 F water temperature to offer a consistent beverage
quality for the users. There is a +/- 2 degree F tolerance.
This is an average and is not what you would get from a manual temperature measure. The actual
water temperature fluctuates since cold water enters the tank after every beverage delivery and time is
required to heat the incoming water up to the setpoint.
You can also take the water’s brewing temperature manually by ordering a cup of hot water and
measuring its temperature with a thermometer. There may be a slight difference from the tank reading.
This is normal.
If you are experiencing large temperature differences, verify that your tank is clean and not obstructed by
mineral deposits and scale.
Initial Setup
Unit safety measures
In the event of a temperature probe failure, the tank may start to boil. This will cause it to overflow into the
“Overflow Cup” and will automatically shut off the unit.

CLEANING AND SANITIZING
8.1
Cleaning and Sanitizing Instructions
It is important to clean and sanitize this equipment on a regular basis in order to maintain the highest
beverage quality.These regulations require that all parts in contact with food be cleaned and sanitized
regularly and that hands be cleaned before handling these parts or other commodities such as cups
and stirs.
Cleaning and sanitizing should be done in separate steps as prescribed by health regulations and
good industry practice.
Cleaning:
Cleaning means “Making free of visible soil, stains or impurities”. This also means
removing food soils, oil or mineral deposits that could alter the beverage taste or
appearance and therefore, its quality.
Sanitizing:
Sanitizing means application of measures designed to protect public health. This is
done by removing bacteria remaining on the surface after it has been cleaned.
Always unplug the unit before using water on electrical parts of the machine.
For the sanitation process to work effectively, the part must be cleaned and free of all visible food soil,
completely rinsed and preferably air dried. Wiping with towels or cloths can recontaminate cleaned
food-contact surfaces. Therefore, we recommend to air dry sanitized food - contact surfaces and not
wipe dry.
FREQUENCY:
There are two important variables that need to be considered when evaluating cleaning and sanitizing
frequencies:
·· Product consumption
·· Water quality
Cleaning & Sanitizing
There are two sanitation methods:
1. Chemically, the part can be treated with a bactericidal compound to remove bacteria;
2. With water of at least 212 F, the bacteria can be killed if the temperature of the part is raised high
enough.
Since the expected customer usage may vary for one location to another, the cleaning and
maintenance is recommended upon the given time lines or cycle counts, which ever comes first. Note
that these are intended as a guideline to ensure a part does not go without cleaning. We recommend
you verify each part listed in this section upon each visit and that they be cleaned as needed.
8.2
Recommended Cleaning Tools
In order to perform the following cleaning procedure effectively, we recommend that you have at least
the following tools:
- Pail or bucket
- Small tube brush suitable for food-contact surfaces
- Medium size long and flexible brush, suitable for food-contact surfaces
- Medium brush for coffee grounds, suitable for food-contact surfaces
- Disposable towels, wet-strength and lint-free
- Mild nonabrasive detergent for exterior cleaning
- Urn cleaner packets for coffee parts
- Spare parts if extensive cleaning is to be done at the shop
- Garbage bags for the waste bin

8.5.2 Emptying the waste bin
Frequency: Daily or every 200 cycles*
After each coffee cycle, the spent grounds and used filter paper are automatically discarded into the
waste bin located in the stand. To prevent the bin from overflowing there is an automatic function which
stops the brewer and shows the following message on the LCD screen:
Needs Service
Activate Brewer
Cleaning & Sanitizing
The maximum setting = 399
The minimum setting = 0
Setting it to 0 will disable the automatic function and will cause an overflow problem if the bin is full.
The equipment will not dispense beverages until the bin is emptied and the counter is reset. To reset
the counter, the brewer switch (#SW4) needs to be activated by being turned on and off. This factory set
counter can be adjusted to the waste bin size used. See the machine parameters for more instructions on
changing the setting.
How to empty the stand waste bin:

Interior Parts Cleaning & Sanitizing
For sanitary reasons, do not use soap or detergent inside the brewer. Use hot water for on-site
sanitation or suitable chemical products in the shop. Wiping with towels or cloths can recontaminate
sanitized food-contact surfaces. Therefore, we recommend to air dry sanitized food-contact surfaces
and not wipe dry. Allow sufficient time for the parts to dry thoroughly before closing the door.
Use a medium size brush dedicated for coffee grounds and a small dust pan to easily
brush away coffee grounds and dust inside the brewer before cleaning with water.

10.2.1Storing the Brewer Assembly
60
The brewer assembly is the heart of the equipment and is responsible for the taste of the coffee. It is
therefore
important that you store it properly when it is not in the unit. Always disengage your brewer clutch
by using a pair of pliers and turning the pin located on the back clockwise until the brew chamber lifts
up. This will release the pressure on the screen and seal. Your brewer must be on its back or its left
side while on a table top. Do not sit the brewer on its right side (wheels and yoke) or straight up as
these positions are not sturdy and could cause it to fall.

4.
Check if you are using the appropriate filter paper: Filter Paper 106 for the Platinum “La Petite-X”
brewer.
If the problem appears with only one coffee selection, empty the canister and try another coffee
batch of the same blend.
Check if the brew chamber or the cylinder are cracked. In this case, the piston would pull more air
than liquid.
If water comes out on both sides (left and right) of the brew chamber for more than 3/4 inches, you
have to readjust the tension.
Element not heating
Troubleshooting
1.
2.
3.
Check the connectors and make sure they are connected properly.
If the tank lid is soiled of coffee and chocolate it can affect the switches and keep them from
operating correctly. In this case, change the heater safety switch.
Verify the condition of the element by taking out the complete tank lid.

4.
Check if the unit is plugged in.
Check if the light is ON on the plug. (Press on the Reset button if not)
Check if the two breakers near of the ON/OFF switch are pushed in.
Check and empty if necessary the overflow cup inside the machine. If the cup fills up with water
again, check the water level switch. It might be because the water level switch is dirty or because it
needs a little adjustment. To adjut it, slightly bend down the switch’s arm (app. 1/6” should be
sufficient).
Quantity of liquid too low (in cup)
Verify the machine’s settings and make sure they correspond to the values given in the programming
manual. Make sure the outlet valves are clean and not clogged up of lime.
