OPERATION AND CLEANING
MODEL 1603 SERIES TOP-FILL COFFEE BREWER
DESCRIPTION
The model 1603 is an aviation quality general purpose, top-fill coffee brewer. This Coffee
Brewer brews up to 54 oz. of coffee per brew cycle and may be used with either loose coffee
or with a commercial pillow pack. Using distilled water in the operation of this machine will
prevent the build-up of water deposits in the coffee brewer’s heater assembly.
OPERATION
A. For slide units only, to operate the slide feature, depress both slide release levers at
once and move unit in or out until it latches into position.
B. Press both pot/brew basket retainer latches down and remove brew basket.
C. Install a paper coffee filter with the appropriate amount of coffee into brew basket or insert
a pillow pack. For proper operation, use 3-1/4” diameter x 2-3/8” high paper coffee filters
(8-12 cup size).
D. Press both pot/brew basket retainer latches down and return brew basket to brewer.
E. Press both pot/brew basket retainer latches down and remove carafe.
F. Fill carafe with water and pour into the water fill port (top of brewer). Avoid overfilling the
water tank by watching tank level sight gauge.
NOTE: To prevent carafe overflow, make certain that the amount of water poured
into the coffee brewer does not exceed the capacity of the carafe (54 oz.). DO NOT
add water during the brew cycle. Remember that the carafe must be able to hold the
amount of water poured into the coffee brewer tank.
G. Return empty carafe to Coffee Brewer.
H. Switch Coffee Brewer to ON position to begin the brew cycle.
I. When brew cycle is complete, remove brew basket and discard coffee grounds.
J.
Note: When the water level falls below 4 cups on the tank level sight gauge, 4 cups
of water still remain in the water tank.
K. Remove carafe from the coffee brewer and serve. When not serving coffee ALWAYS
return the carafe to the coffee brewer to keep coffee hot and for flight safety. ON/OFF
switch must be in the ON position to keep the coffee warm.
CAUTION: Once all coffee is served, shut off power switch. Carafe is not to be heated
empty.

IN SERVICE CLEANING
WARNING: TURN OFF ALL POWER TO COFFEE BREWER COMPARTMENT AND
ALLOW UNIT TO COOL
DAILY
A. Use a damp cloth only. Wipe all areas of the brewer where coffee may have splashed.
B. Rinse brew basket after final use, while still damp.
C. Clean carafe and brew basket with any mild dishwashing detergent.
CAUTION: Do not use commercial cleaning agents such as bathroom or kitchen cleaners.
Some (particularly aerosol spray types) contain ingredients, which chemically attack plastic
parts causing them to crack or break.
MONTHLY
Flush mineral deposits from the coffee brewer using any automatic coffee brewer cleaning
solution available from local retail outlets. Cycle cleaning solution through the water fill port on
the brewer according to package instructions.
Note: If you are experiencing extended brewing times, it may be desirable to perform this
cleaning more often than monthly.
