INTRODUCTION
The Liquid Coffee Ambient Dispenser delivers two types of coffee made from liquid concentrate plus hot
water. The dispenser can be set up for continuous draw (by the cup) for self-serve applications, or portioncontrol to fill carafes and decanters for wait staff. Follow the Concentrate Manufacturer’s Storage and Shelf Life
recommendations.
This dispenser is designed to operate when ambient temperatures are from 32°F (0°C) minimum to 104°F
(40°C) maximum.
ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS
WARNING - If the power cord is ever damaged, it must be replaced by the manufacturer or its service agent with
a special cord available from the manufacturer or its service agent in order to avoid a hazard.
The LCA-2 LP dispenser is supplied with a 120-volt / 15 Amp cord set and require a 2-wire, grounded, individual
branch circuit rated for 120 volts AC, 15 amp, single phase, 60Hz. The mating connector must be a NEMA 515R.
PLUMBING REQUIREMENTS
The dispenser may be connected to a cold or hot water system (140°F Max.) with operating pressure between
20 and 90 psi (138 and 620 kPa) from a 3/8” or larger supply line. A shut-off valve should be installed in the line
before the dispenser. Install a regulator in the line when pressure is greater than 90 psi (620 kPa) to reduce it to
50 psi (345 kPa). The water inlet fitting is 1/4” flare. Dispensers set up to deliver to 50.0 ml/sec (1.7 Oz./sec.)
and require a water supply source that can deliver a minimum of 1.0 gpm (3.8 lpm) at the inlet fitting.
NOTE: Bunn-O-Matic recommends 1/4” tubing from the 3/8” water supply line. At least 18 inches of FDA approved
flexible beverage tubing, such as reinforced braided polyethylene or silicone, before the dispenser will facilitate
movement to clean the counter top. It can be purchased direct from Bunn-O-Matic (part number 00326.0000).
Bunn-O-Matic does not recommend the use of a saddle valve to install the dispenser. The size and shape of the
hole made in the supply line by this type of device may restrict water flow.
This equipment must be installed to comply with the International Plumbing Code of the International
Code Council and the Food Code Manual of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). For models installed
outside the U.S.A., you must comply with the applicable Plumbing/Sanitation Code for your area.
NOTE - Water pipe connections and fixtures directly connected to a potable water supply shall be sized, installed
and maintained in accordance with federal, state and local codes.
BUNN recommends the use of our Easy Clear® Water Quality Systems to assure perfect taste.

The pumps and tubing used in the dispenser are designed to give maximum performance and long life. However, the
tubes are a wear item and must be replaced periodically. How long the tubes last is dependent on usage and properties of
the concentrate. Excessive wear will reduce the output of the pumps resulting in a weak mixed beverage. Bunn-O-Matic
recommends replacing the Pump Tubing a minimum of once every 6 months or sooner if warranted.
Refer to the Tube Replacement Instruction inside the Cabinet door.
Note: To avoid concentrate spills, rinse the pump tubing with warm tap water prior to removing the tubes, (Refer to steps
1 - 4 of the Weekly Sanitizing instructions).
1. Loosen the thumbscrew (Fig 1) securing the tubing retainer plate to the pump body and set the retainer plate aside.
2. Depress the tension screw and remove it from the notch in the pump body, releasing the spring tension on the pump
band (Fig 2).
3. Gently pull the pump tube from around the pump rotor (Fig 3).
4. Inspect the pump bands, rollers and housing for contamination or signs of wear. Clean or replace worn parts if necessary.
5. Apply lubricant (BUNN-O-MATIC part no. M2531.0001) to the middle section of the new pump tubing (Fig 4).
6. Carefully wrap the new tubing around the rotor, making sure that the elbow and clamps end up on the front side of the
pump body (Fig 5).
7. Depress the tension screw and insert it in the notch in the pump body, reapplying spring tension on the pump band.
8. Install the free end of the tube over the inlet port of the mix chamber on that side of the cabinet (Fig. 5).
9. Replace the tubing retainer plate and tighten the thumbscrew.
9. Open the product container and insert the stainless steel drawtube into the container (Fig 6).
10. Repeat steps 1 through 9 for the other pump.
Note: Replacement Tube Kits can be purchased from BUNN-O-MATIC. Order part no. 37942.1000

Field Calibration of the Concentrate Pumps & Dispenser Flow Rates
The factory set default values for the Pump & Dispenser Flow Rates are very accurate and typically do
not need to be field calibrated. However, if the mix ratio accuracy is ever in question, this procedure
can be used to recalibrate the unit in the field.
Equipment Required:
50 to 100 ml graduated cylinder, with 1 ml graduations.
1500 to 2000 ml graduated container.
NOTE: You can calibrate either the Concentrate Pump or the Dispenser Flow Rate independently.
Simply scroll through the menu screen to the desired section and perform only those steps. (refer to
Calibrating the Dispenser)
Calibrating the Concentrate Pumps.
Regular Coffee - Concentrate Pump Calibration
1. Open the door of the dispenser and select PROGRAM on the Mode Selector Switch.
2. Depress and Hold the MENU switch for approximately 10 sec. The unit will display “C1 run”
when it has entered the Calibration Mode.
3. Select PRIME on the Function Selector Switch.
4. Place a container under the left Dispense Tip and depress the Regular dispense switch until a
steady stream of concentrate comes out the tip (5 to 10 seconds).
5. Stop priming and allow the tip to stop dripping. Discard the concentrate collected.
6. Place a 50 ml graduated cylinder under the Left Dispense Tip.
7. Press & Hold the Regular dispense switch. The dispenser will display a 20 second count down
timer and then shut the pump OFF automatically. Release the dispense switch.
8. Keep the graduated cylinder under dispense tip until all the concentrate has dripped out.
9. Measure the volume of concentrate collected in the graduated cylinder.
The acceptable range for the volume of concentrate collected is 16 - 26 ml
10.If the amount collected is not within the acceptable range, empty the graduated cylinder and
repeat STEPS 6 – 9.
11.If the amount collected is still not within range, replace the pump tubing with a new Tube Kit,
(refer to the Tube Replacement Instructions).
12.When satisfied with the volume of concentrate collected, press the MENU switch. The current
Calibration volume “C1 XX” will be displayed.
13.Use the (-) / (+) keys to adjust number displayed to the amount measured in STEP 9.
Decaffeinated Coffee - Concentrate Pump Calibration
Depress the MENU switch to display the Decaffeinated Concentrate Pump calibration menu “C2
run”.
Repeat STEPS 3 – 13 above for the right side “Decaf” pump.
Calibrating the Dispenser Flow Rates.
Regular Coffee - Dispenser Flow Rate Calibration
1. Select RINSE on the Function Selector Switch.
2. Press the MENU switch to display the Regular Coffee Flow Rate calibration menu “C3 run”
3. Place a container under Left Dispense Tip and depress the Regular dispense switch until a
steady stream of water comes out the tip (5 to 10 seconds).

4. Stop dispensing and allow the tip to stop dripping. Discard the water collected
5. Place a 1500 to 2000 ml graduated container under Left Dispense Tip.
6. Press & Hold the Regular dispense switch. The dispenser will display a 20 second count down
timer and then stop dispensing automatically. Release the dispense switch.
7. Keep the graduated container under dispense tip until all the water stops dripping.
8. Measure the volume of water collected in the graduated container.
The acceptable range for the volume of water collected is .95 - 1.12 liters
9. If the amount of water collected is not within the acceptable range, empty the graduated container and repeat STEPS 5 – 8.
10.If the amount collected is still not within range, inspect the dispense valves, tubing and mix
chamber for lime, kinks or other obstructions.
11.When satisfied with the volume of water collected, press the MENU switch. The current Water
Calibration volume “C3 XX” will be displayed.
12.Use the (-) / (+) keys to adjust number displayed to the amount measured in STEP 8.
Decaffeinated Coffee - Dispenser Flow Rate Calibration
Depress the MENU switch to display the Decaffeinated Coffee Flow Rate calibration menu “C4 run”.
Repeat STEPS 3 – 12 above for the right side “Decaf” pump.
Field Calibrating the Empty Product Warning
The dispenser will automatically turn on the Regular or Decaf “REFILL LED”, see Operating Controls
and Interface, when the corresponding container is Empty. The Refill message is triggered when the
conductance sensor reading drops below the minimum setting. The factory set minimum is 600 and
should be correct for most locations. However, in some areas the hardness of the local water supply
may effect this reading. If the Refill message doesn’t come on when the container is empty or the message comes on too early and there is still concentrate left in the container, use the following procedure
to find the correct Empty Product Threshold.
Calibrating The Empty Product Threshold
1. Open the dispenser door to access the digital programming module with LED display and set the
Function Switch to the “Rinse” position. Leave the door open to view the LED display.
2. Place a large container under the dispenser tip, then activate and hold the Regular Coffee dispense
switch.
3. Hold the dispense switch long enough to rinse all the concentrate out of the mix chamber and for
the Conductance reading to stabilize and stop dropping.
4. Record the nominal Conductance value displayed. (NOTE: It is typical for this value to fluctuate (+/25) points about the nominal value.) This is the conductance reading of the water in your area.
5. Repeat steps 2, 3 & 4 for the Decaf Coffee dispenser.
6. Add 100 points to the larger of the Regular or Decaf conductance value. This is the new Empty
Product threshold value for your dispenser.
7. Enter this new value into the Empty Product Alarm threshold position “P8 XXX”, see Programming the Dispenser.
