Adjusting the Tank Overflow Float
It is important to verify that the Overflow cup is in place with the highest
side in front and secured well with the red 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. Fasten it in place with tape. This
will ensure that the float will “float” and will activate the overflow switch if a
problem accurs.
AVALON
It is important to verify that the float is positioned properly in the overflow
cup because it can move around in transportation. If this float is not
properly in place the switch will not be activated and the unit will
automatically shut down sensing an overflow situation.

installation. Also verify that the incoming water pressure is greater than 20 psi and no more
than 80 psi.
1. Prior to installing the equipment, 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 equipment;
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;
3. Make sure your water source is turned off. Secure the inlet fitting firmly onto the inlet valve. Do not
overtighten;
4. Make sure the equipment is unplugged. Connect the water line to the quick connect inlet fitting;
5. Turn the water valve on, sending water to the brewer. If there are any leaks, tighten connections to stop
leakage.

INSTALLATION MANUAL
(800) 561-6162
Water Temperature
This is an average and is not what you would get from a manual temperature measure. The actual
water temperature fluctuates because cold water is added to the tank after every beverage delivery and
time is needed to heat the new incoming water up to setpoint.
AVALON
This equipment has a coffee brewing setpoint of 202 F* water temperature to offer a consistent beverage quality
to the users. There is a +/- 2 degree F tolerance.
.
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.
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 it off.

Cleaning and Sanitizing Instructions
Cleaning and sanitizing should be done in separate steps as prescribed by health regulations and good
industrypractice.
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 reducing 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 sanitized
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 and sanitizing
There are two sanitation methods:
1) Chemically, the part can be treated with a bactericidal compound to remove bacteria;
2) With hot water of at least 170 F, the bacteria can be killed if the temperature of the part is raised high
enough.
AVALON
It is important to clean and sanitize this equipment on a regular basis in order to maintain the highest beverage
quality and ensure the safety of the users.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.
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.
5.3
Recommended Cleaning Tools
In order to perform the following cleaning procedure effectively, we recommend that you have at least the
following tools:
- Sanitation pail or bucket
- Small tube and nozzel brush, suitable for food-contact surfaces and hot water
- 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

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:
Waste bin full!
Need Service!
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.

Brewer Assembly
PM: Yearly or every 20,000 coffee cycles
The brewer is the heart of the equipment and is responsible for the taste in the cup. It needs to be serviced
regularly to maintain the quality of the beverages served. We recommend having your brewer assembly
swapped with a new one that you have on hand and returned to Cafection for Preventive Maintenance every
20,000 coffee cycles. For a minimum charge, CAFECTION will completely clean and replace all parts necessary
such as the cylinder, the teflon seal, and the screen and seal which are all responsible for the vacuum
extraction and coffee taste in the cup. It will then be returned with a 1 year warranty against defective parts.
Contact the manufacturer for parts and additional instructions.
Preventive Maintenance
Inspection
The following are signs that the extraction is not being performed adequately and that your brewer may be due
for preventive maintenance:
• if the seal is damaged;
• if air gets into the cylinder and creates bubbles in the coffee;
• if there are coffee grounds in the delivered product;
• if the spent coffee grounds remain wet.

Leaking valve
a) Identify the leaking valve, change it and rebuild it
b) If the leak comes from under the body of the valve or from the tank exit, try simply changing the
conical mounting seal.
c) If the coffee valve leaks via the tubing, water will accumulate in the brew chamber. If it drips all night,
the first coffee of the morning may cause the chamber to flood since it contained too much water.
AVALON
To avoid any problems related to mineral deposits over time, we recommend having the 3 valves swapped,
and rebuilt in your shop with the kits included in the spare parts briefcase. Refer to the manufacturer’s
instructions included with the valve kits.
Removing and installing the valves
Turn off the machine;
Unplug the lid (fig.1.1) and the valves (fig. 1.2);

Disconnect the white double wire from the heating element (see installation diagram)
Tie down the water level switch’s arm with a “tie-wrap” to keep the float from pulling down on
the switch during transportation. “Do not overtighten”, this may damage the switch; this is
simply to keep the float from bouncing up and down on the switch.
Storing the Platinum Brewer
The brewer is the heart of equipment and is responsible for the taste of the cup of coffee. It is therefore
important that you store it properly when it is not in the brewer. 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.
