Installation
(For Qualified Service Technicians Only)
Keys To A Successful Installation
If not installed correctly by qualified personnel, the brewer may not operate properly and damage may result.
Damage resulting from improper installation are not covered by the warranty.
Here are the key points to consider before installation:
Electrical:
™ All FETCO brewers require NEUTRAL. Ground is not an acceptable substitute. Installation without neutral
may cause damage to the electronic components.
™ The electronic controls require at least 105 volts. Less than 105 volts will cause erratic behavior from the
brewer. On 120/208-240 volt models, the #2 terminal on the terminal block provides power to the controls.
™ The circuit breaker is located on the back of the brewer. To reset it, press and release the white button.
™ The electrical drawing for the brewer is located on the inside of the lower cover.
Plumbing:
™ This equipment is to be installed in compliance with the applicable federal, state, or local plumbing codes.
™ The water line must be flushed thoroughly prior to connecting it to the brewer to prevent debris from
contaminating the machine.
™ Verify that the water line will provide at least ¼ gallon per minute for the CBS-31, and ½ gallon per minute
for the CBS-32 before connecting it to the brewer.
General:
™ Use only qualified beverage equipment service technicians for installation. A Service Company Directory
may be found on our web site, http://www.fetco.com.
Installation Instructions
Brewer Setup
1. Review the dimensions for the unit you are installing. Verify that the brewer will fit in the space intended for
it, and that the counter or table will support the total weight of the brewer and dispensers when filled.
2. “Aap” model brewers are shipped with the legs attached. These legs are factory adjusted to one of two
settings. One setting is for the 2.2 liter air pot (narrow).* The other setting is for the 3.0 liter air pot (wide).*
The legs for the “A” model brewers are packed inside the brew basket, and must be attached by the
installer. Place the brewer on its back and screw in the legs.
3. Place the brewer on the counter or stand.
4. When the brewer is in position, level it front to back
Warning: Legs are to be adjusted for
as well as side to side by adjusting the legs.
leveling the brewer only. Do not use

5. Remove the lower cover to access the water and
higher than necessary.
electrical connections. Knock-outs are provided in
the back and base of the brewer body for the
connections.
*Adjusting leg settings: Two holes are provided to adjust the width of the leg rails. Remove the ¼-20 allen head bolt with a
3/16 allen wrench.and move rail to line up with desired hole. Fasten ¼-20 allen bolt. Repeat process on other side.
Water Connection
1. Water inlet is a 1/4 inch male flare fitting.
2. The brewer can be connected to a cold or hot water line. Cold water is preferred for best coffee flavor, but
hot water will allow for faster recovery times.
3. Install a water shut off valve near the brewer to facilitate service. If an in-line water filter is used, it should
be installed after the water shut off valve, and in a position to facilitate filter replacement.
4. Flush the water supply line and filter before connecting it to the brewer.
5. Verify that the water line will provide at least ¼ gallon per minute for the CBS-31, and ½ gallon per minute
for the CBS-32, and that the water pressure is between 20 and 75 psig.
6. Use a wrench on the factory fitting when connecting the incoming water line. This will reduce stress on the
internal connections and reduce the possibility of leaks developing after the installation has been
completed.
5
Electrical Connection
1. Verify that the actual voltage at the electrical service connection is compatible with the specifications on the
brewer’s serial number label. Make sure the electrical service includes neutral.
2. The temperature and water tank fill level are pre-set at the factory. There is no need to turn off the heaters
during the installation process. The heaters are disabled by the control board until the tank is full of water.
The heating process will start automatically when the tank has filled.
3. Only 120vac powered units are shipped from the factory with power cords and plugs attached. For other
voltages, a terminal block is provided for connecting the incoming power wires. Consult local codes to
determine if a cord and plug can be installed, or if the unit must be hard wired.
4. A fused disconnect switch or circuit breaker on the incoming power line must be conveniently located near
the brewer, and its location and markings known to the operators.
Warning: To prevent

7. Finally, connect the incoming power wires to the terminal block in accordance with applicable codes.
Final Setup
1. Turn on the incoming water supply line and inspect both inside and outside of the brewer for leaks in all
fittings and tubes
2. Turn on the incoming power.
3. Turn on the brewer’s main power switch.
4. Within 6 seconds, the hot water tank will begin filling until the water is sensed by the probe at the top of the
tank.
5. The heaters will be disabled by the control board until the tank is full.
6. The brewer will be ready for operation as soon as the ready light comes on to signify that the water tank is
up to temperature. The time required to reach brewing temperature will vary according to the electrical
configuration ordered.
7. Review the Operating Instructions. Brew one full batch (water only) on each side to confirm proper fill
levels. The brewer is factory set with water only (no coffee) to dispense the correct amount of water.
8. Re-attach the covers after one final inspection for leaks. Look closely in the top of the brewer at the
dispense fittings during this inspection.
Operator Training
Review the operating procedures with whoever will be using the brewer. Pay particular attention to the following
areas:
1. Always pre-heat the dispensers before the first use of each day by filling them half way with hot water, and
letting them stand for at least 15 minutes.
2. Don't remove the brew basket until it has stopped dripping.
3. Make sure the dispenser is empty before brewing into it.
4. Show how to attach covers, close, and or secure the thermal dispensers for transporting.
5. Show the location and operation of the water shut off valve as well as the circuit breaker for the brewer.
6. Steam from the tank will form condensation in the vent tubes. This condensation will drip into and then out
of the brew baskets. 1/4 cup discharging overnight is possible. Place an appropriate container under each
brew basket when not in use.
7. We recommend leaving the power to the brewer on overnight. The water tank is well insulated and will use
very little electricity to keep the tank hot. Leaving the brewer in the on position will also avoid delays at the
beginning of shifts for the brewer to reach operating temperature.

Operating Procedures
1. Turn the power switch (A) to the on position
• The power switch will illuminate to indicate that the brewer has power and is operating.
• When the ready light (B) illuminates, the brewer is fully up to temperature. The amount of time
required to gain full operating temperature will vary depending on the electrical configuration that was
ordered, and the temperature of the incoming water.
2. Prepare the brew baskets (F).
• Place a paper filter in each basket to be used. Pour the appropriate amount of pre-measured, ground
coffee into the filter. The amount of coffee used will depend on your personal tastes and the
recommendation of your roaster.
• Slide the brew basket back into the rails on the brewer.
• Select full or half batch mode (C) (optional).
3. Prepare the dispenser(s).
• Ensure that the dispensers are empty. If you are using
airpots, open the cover and remove the pump stem
before brewing.
• Place the dispensers in position under the brew
baskets.
4. Press the brew switch (D) to start the brew cycle.
• The brew light (E) will illuminate, verifying that the brew
cycle has begun.
• It is normal for the ready light to go out after the start of
the brew cycle. On twin brewers, there is enough hot
Airpot
Gravity pot
water in the brewer to support a second brew, even if
the ready light is off. After brewing on both sides, you
must wait for the ready light to come back on.
• The electrical configuration and the electrical power connected to the brewer will determine how long
before the ready light comes back on for the next brew.
• If it is necessary to interrupt the brew cycle before it is finished, press the stop switch (G).
5. You now have a dispenser of freshly brewed coffee, ready to serve, that will taste fresh and stay hot.
ONLY a non-heated dispenser can do that.
• If you are using airpots, insert the pump stem before closing the cover.
CAUTION:
Do not remove the brew basket immediately after the brew cycle has finished. Wait until
dripping from the bottom of the brew basket has stopped. Carefully remove the brew basket
while inspecting the inside of the basket for hot coffee that has not finished draining.

Service
Warranty
All FETCO brewers come with a limited warranty. All warranty service must be pre-authorized by calling the
FETCO Service Department at (800) 338-2699.
Principles of Operation
Fill System
The fill system consists of a liquid level control board, a water level probe at the top of the tank, and a fill valve. As
the water rises and touches the probe, continuity is established between the probe tip and the tank body, and the
fill valve closes.
When water is dispensed, the water level drops below the probe. After a 5 second delay, the fill valve opens until
the water touches the probe again. The 5 second delay, and the speed that water refills the tank during brewing,
results in many short bursts of water. The sound made by these repetitive bursts will let you know the fill system is
functioning normally. (This sound may not be audible in a noisy environment.)
The fill system is designed to protect the heaters during both the installation and a loss of the water supply. During
initial installation, or whenever the power switch is turned on, voltage will not be supplied to the thermostat until the
tank fills and water touches the water level probe. During operation, when water is dispensed and the water level
drops below the probe, a fill signal is sent to the fill valve. If no water is sensed by the probe after 40 seconds, the
voltage to the thermostat and the heaters is removed.
Water enters the tank near the bottom. This introduces cold incoming water directly to the heaters and away from
the dispense assembly.
The water tank can be drained through a valve located on the back of the brewer, near the incoming water
connection.
Temperature System:
The temperature system consists of an electronic thermostat, a temperature probe, and heating elements, and is
enabled by the liquid level control board. (See the previous section - Fill System.)
When the water level probe is in contact with water, power is delivered to the thermostat through the liquid level
control board. If the temperature probe senses that the water is not hot enough, the thermostat energizes the
heating elements through the mercury relay, the water is heated, and the ready light goes off.
Once the water temperature reaches the set point, the thermostat disengages power to the heaters and the ready
light illuminates. The thermostat is adjusted to 203° F ± 2° at the factory. (Slightly lower for high altitude
installations.)
Timing & Dispense System:
The timing system consist of the timer, the dispense valve, the brew start switch, and the brew stop switch. When
the brew start switch is pressed, the timer starts its’ cycle. The timer energizes the dispense valve, which opens
and allows water to flow into the brew basket. It also lights the brew light. The valve remains energized throughout
the brew cycle timed sequence.
When the timer finishes its cycle, it removes voltage from the dispense valve. The valve closes, the flow of water
stops, and the brew light goes out.
The brew stop switch is used only when it is necessary to interrupt the brew cycle before the cycle is finished.
The timer used with the half batch option has a small jumper wire on one end. A switch can replace this jumper to
open or close this connection. Opening this connection cuts the timed output in half.

Adjustments
Thermostat Adjustment:
For equipment manufactured before April 2004
The brewer’s water tank temperature is factory set at 203°F (slightly lower for high altitudes, to prevent boiling).
This setting will deliver water at 195°F ± 5° to the coffee grounds.
Measure the temperature by holding a thermometer in the stream of water flowing out of the hot water faucet. The
temperature should be 195°F ± 5°.
If an adjustment is necessary:
• Remove the upper cover of the unit.
• The thermostat is located in the upper section of the brewer. Locate the
adjustment stem, which may be taped to the thermostat.
• Insert the stem into the adjustment hole.
• Turn the adjustment stem slightly counterclockwise (as viewed from the stem
insertion point) to increase the temperature, and clockwise to decrease the
temperature.
Thermostat
• If you decreased the temperature setting, run 2 or 3 brew cycles to allow
enough cold water into the brewer to lower the tank temperature.
• Wait for the “ready” light to come on, and measure the temperature again.
• Repeat until the desired temperature is obtained.
• Replace the cover(s).
Effective April 2004:
A new digital thermostat and temperature probe were introduced as a direct replacement for the old style
thermostat and probe.
During normal operation, the digital readout displays the last two digits of the actual water temperature. When the
adjustment knob is turned, the readout begins flashing to indicate the set point, not the actual temperature. After
the knob is released, the readout stops flashing and displays the actual temperature again.
A red LED lights when the power to the thermostat is on. A yellow LED lights when the thermostat is calling for
heat.
To adjust, turn the adjustment knob. The display will flash, indicating that the display is showing the set point, not
the actual temperature.
Examples:
The display shows only the last 2 digits
of the temperature.
The dots below the numbers indicate the temp range.
0 dots – less than 100° F
1 dot – between 100° and 200° F
2 dots – over 200° F

Timer Adjustment:
For equipment manufactured before April 2004
The timers control the amount of water that is used for brewing. The dual sided
brewer, (CBS-32A, & 32Aap) has separate timers to control each side
independently.
All timers are factory set to deliver the correct amount of water.
There are three possible types of timers used:
• Part # 51006 – full batch only (standard)
• Part # 51005 – full / half batch (optional) The half batch setting provides
exactly half the amount of water as the full batch setting.
• Part # 51017 – dual portion (optional) The timer has 2 independent settings.
# 51006 timer, 120V
Adjustment of the factory settings may be desired to compensate for the amount of
water absorbed by the coffee grounds. Approximately 2 ounces of water will be
absorbed for every ounce of coffee.
To adjust the timer:
• Remove the brewer’s upper cover.
• If your brewer has the half-batch or dual portion option, make sure the
selector switch is in the full batch position.
• Note the current setting of the dial before making any adjustments.
• Turn the knob clockwise to increase and counter-clockwise to decrease the
timer setting. On the dual portion timer. the knob labeled “T1” controls the
full batch setting.
• Run a full brew cycle to check the brew level.
• If necessary, repeat the adjustment until the desired volume is obtained.
• For the dual portion timer, set the selector switch on “half” and adjust the
knob labeled “T2” until the desired volume of water is obtained.
• Replace the cover.

Effective April 2004:
A new digital timer was introduced as a direct replacement for the three old style timers. When a batch selector
switch is not connected, the timer functions as a single portion timer.
The timer has two independent settings, with three dials for each setting. The first dial in each group sets 100
second increments, the second dial sets 10 second increments, and the third dial sets 1 second increments.
A red LED lights when the power to the timer is on. A yellow LED lights when the timer is running.
A small flat head screwdriver is required to adjust the dials.

Troubleshooting
Brewing Problem
Brew switch will not start brew cycle (no water
is dispensed)
and brew light does not come on,
even when switch is pressed in.
and brew light does not stay on.
(Light is on only while switch is
pressed in.)
Brew switch will not start brew cycle (no water
is dispensed)
and brew light does come on.
Short brew levels EVERY BREW
(One or both sides are affected and levels are
consistent)
Short brew levels SOME BREWS
(One or Both sides are affected and levels are
erratic)
Brew time required to fill dispensers is not
the same for both sides
High brew levels EVERY BREW
(overfills but eventually does stop)
SOME BREWS
Brew basket or filter overflows
Weak Coffee
Grounds not saturated
Spray head / brew basket drips - MAJOR or
MINOR
one side only
Spray head / brew basket drips - MAJOR or
MINOR
double brewers - right side only
Possible Cause
No power to the brewer
(Brewer lights are not illuminated)
Bad brew switch
Bad timer or stop switch. (The
stop switch provides voltage to
the timer.)
No water reaching the brewer.
Verify by dispensing water from
hot water faucet for several
seconds. Water should flow
freely and steadily.
Bad dispense valve. (Brewer may
buzz when in brew cycle)
Water filter clogged
Dispense valve clogged
Timer/s are set too low
Incoming Voltage is too low for
timers to function at proper time
sequences
Water filter clogged.
(problem is worse during
simultaneous brews)
Weak dispense valve
(may buzz during cycle)
Water pressure or flow rate is too
low or fluctuates too much to
support a full brew.
(problem is worse during
simultaneous brews)
Brewer is not level
Timer/s are set too high
Dispenser not empty
Improper dose
Too many filter papers
Low brew temperature
(Temperature inside the hot
water tank should be set to 205°
F.)
Half batch used incorrectly
Water Softener in use
Degassing - extremely fresh
coffee
Dispense valve not sealing
properly.
Fill valve not sealing
(Will drip even with power off.)

Solution
-Make sure power switch is on
-Check power connection. (plug or hard wire
connection)
-Check the wall circuit breaker / reset
-Reset the circuit breaker, located on the back of the
brewer. Press and release the white button.
-Replace switch.
-Check for voltage reaching the timer. If voltage is
present, replace timer. If not, replace stop switch.
-Make sure the shut off valve is open.
-Check water line for kinks; replace line if necessary
-Check to see if filter is clogged by changing it.
-Replace the dispense valve
(See details in next section)
-Clean and/or replace the dispense valve.
-Advance timers to proper level.
-Reset wall circuit breaker as one side may drop out &
not flag the breaker.
-Call an electrician to find loose connections in the
building
-Replace water filter
-Replace dispense valve.
-Make sure brewer has a dedicated water line
-Ensure that the shut off valve is open all the way
(Never use needle saddle valves)
-Increase the diameter of the water line to the brewer
and or find stable source.
-With an accurate level, level the brewer front to back
and left to right by adjusting the feet.
-Adjust timers down to appropriate level
-Empty the dispenser and try again
-Call FETCO Service Dept. to discuss.
(800) 338-2699
-Measure and confirm correct dose
-Make sure only one paper is used
-Adjust thermostat so the water stream measured at
the bottom of the brew basket, 1/3 of the way
through the brew cycle, equals 195 degrees + or - 5
degrees
-Use smaller brew basket
-Discourage half batch use
-Move brewer water feed to a non-softened source.
-Call FETCO Service Dept. to discuss.
(800) 338-2699
-Clean, rebuild, or replace dispense valve.
-See next section - “Brewer won’t stop brewing”, “Bad
or stuck fill valve”.
Brewing Problem
Brewer won’t stop brewing
(not the same as high brew levels)
Possible Cause
Water pressure over 75psi
Water level probe bad or
encrusted with lime.
(causes brewer to continue filling
hot water tank which will overflow
into the brew baskets)
Bad liquid level control board
Bad or stuck fill valve
Coffee tastes too strong
Temperature Problem (brewer only)
See also dispenser problems
Brew water is cold / not hot enough,
ready light is OFF.
(Before proceeding, make sure water
tank refills when water is dispensed.
The brewer will not heat unless the
tank is full.)
Reverse osmosis water system.
(Mineral content is too low for
liquid level control board to
operate properly.)
Incorrect dosage
Slow to recover temperature
(Ready light takes a long time to come
back on after brewing.)
-Replace the LLC board if grounding the probe end of the
(green) probe wire to the body of brewer does not remove
the voltage at the fill terminal on the LLC board.
-Rebuild or replace the fill valve if no voltage is on the coil
(it is not magnetic) and it still passes water to the tank.
(Disconnect the outlet side to see if it leaks water to the
tank)
-Call FETCO Service Department to discuss.
(800) 338-2699.
Short brew levels
-Measure and confirm the correct amount of coffee
required
-See “Short brew levels”, above.
Possible Cause
Solution
No power to brewer.
-Make sure power switch is on
-Check power connection. (plug or hard wire connection)
-Check the wall circuit breaker / reset
-Reset the circuit breaker, located on the back of the
brewer. Press and release the white button.
Defective liquid level control
board.
(No power to thermostat).
Bad connections on mercury relay.
(No power to heaters).
Defective mercury relay.
(No power to heaters).
-With power on, and water tank full, check LLC board for
120 volts on brown wire and neutral. Replace LLC board
if there is no voltage.
-Check relay for burned or loose connections. Replace
with high temperature connectors if necessary.
-Check input and output voltages on relay. 120 volts on
blue wire (input) but no voltage out to heaters indicates a
bad relay.
-Check amperage draw on heater wires. 0 amps = bad
heater.
-Replace the thermostat and or thermal probe. It’s not
possible to trouble shoot the probe.
Bad heating element/s.
Brew water is cold / not hot enough,
ready light is ON.
Solution
-Place a water pressure regulator on the line and reduce to
20-75 psi
-Clean lime build up on the probe tip
and/or tank wall. (Holding the probe wire (green) from the
probe end to the body of the brewer should stop the fill if
the probe is bad but the liquid level board is good)
Bad Thermostat
(the thermostat believes that it is
at set temperature)
Low brew temperature setting on
thermostat
Brewers with more than one
heater can have just one fail.
(CBS-32 - 120/220 volts only)
Hot water tank limed up
Boiling and Steams
Thermostat set too high for altitude
(Denver etc.)
Defective thermostat
Dispenser Problem
Coffee not hot enough
Possible Cause
Attempting to hold coffee
too long.
Using 1/2 batch on regular
basis
-See “Low brew temperature” under “Weak Coffee”
section.
-Check amperage draw on heater wires. 0 amps = bad
heater.
-Remove access cover to the hot water tank and inspect
for lime. Remove the brewer for shop de-liming if build up
is thick.
-Reduce temperature setting to 3 degrees below boiling at
your altitude
-Replace the thermostat and or thermal probe. It’s not
possible to trouble shoot the probe.
Solution
-Review discard times
-Encourage full batch use except at end of day or shift. Explore the
need for smaller dispensers
-Contact dispenser manufacturer:
Zojirushi - (800) 733-6270 / Techni-Brew - (800) 545-4077
