PLUMBING REQUIREMENTS
This dispenser must be connected to a cold water system with operating pressure between 20 and 90 psi (138
and 620 kPa) from a 1/2˝ or larger supply line. A shut-off valve should be installed in the line before the brewer.
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 .75-11.5 NH (HOSE THREAD). For convenience an elbow adaptor is provided to convert to
a 1/4˝ flare fitting. Bunn-O-Matic does not recommend the use of a reverse-osmosis or deionized water supply
to this equipment. REQUIRED: 1.0 gpm (3.78 lpm) flow rate from water supply line.
NOTE - At least 18 inches of an FDA approved flexible beverage tubing, such as reinforced braided polyethylene
or silicone, before the dispenser will facilitate movement to clean the countertop. 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.
As directed in the International Plumbing Code of the International Code Council and the Food Code
Manual of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), this equipment must be installed with adequate
backflow prevention to comply with federal, state and local codes. For models installed outside the
U.S.A., you must comply with the applicable Plumbing /Sanitation Code for your area.
PLUMBING HOOK-UP (Early Models)
1. Securely attach the short piece of tubing on the water strainer assembly to the inlet fitting on the bottom of
the dispenser.
2. Flush the water line and securely attach it to the flare fitting on the water strainer assembly.
3. Turn-on the water supply.
PLUMBING HOOK-UP (Late Models)
1. Flush the water line and securely attach it to the elbow fitting on the bottom of the dispenser.
2. Turn-on the water supply.
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.
INITIAL FILL & HEAT
CAUTION - The dispenser must be disconnected from the power source throughout the initial fill & heat, except
when specified in the instructions.
1. Turn on the water supply and connect the dispenser to the power source.
2. Water will automatically flow into the tank to the proper level and then shut off. This will take less than five
minutes.
3. When the tank is full of water, open the front door and place the heater switch in the “ON” (lower) position.
A tank full of cold water will take approximately forty minutes for the water to heat on 120 volt versions, and
twenty minutes on 120/240, and 220-240 volt versions.
During this waiting period, complete these dispenser set-up steps:
a. Place a set of keyholes in the splash panel over the screws beneath the hopper access door and push down
gently.
b.Place the drip tray onto the supports on the splash panel. Hook the tabs on the rear of the drip tray through
the holes in the splash panel. Set the drip tray cover in place.
c. Fill the hopper(s) with the dry product to be dispensed.

PRESET TANK TEMPERATURE
Tank temperatures have been preset at the factory to 180°F (82°C). Bunn recommends that to provide the best
quality beverage, the installer adjust the tank temperature to the powder product manufacturer’s recommended
temperature for the hot powder product being used.
LIQUID LEVEL CONTROL
The system automatically maintains the hot water tank’s level by energizing the refill solenoid when the water
level drops below the liquid level probe. If the system has not successfully refilled in 7 1/2 minutes, a refill error
occurs.
When a refill error occurs, the refill solenoid is de-energized and the rinse L.E.D. will flash about once every 5
seconds.
Once the cause of the refill error has been investigated (see the troubleshooting guide) and cured, the system
can be reset by disconnecting (for at least 5 seconds) and then reconnecting the power to the machine.
RINSE TIMER
The dispenser is shipped from the factory with the rinse timer disabled. To enable the rinse timer, remove
power from the dispenser, remove the lower access panel, and remove the jumper from J1 of the control
board. Replace the lower access panel, and return power to the dispenser.
When enabled, the rinse timer automatically keeps track of the time since the dispenser was last run through
a rinse sequence. If the dispenser detects that a rinse sequence has not been run for 8 hours, the rinse L.E.D.
will flash continually. If, after an additional 4 hours (12 hours total), a rinse sequence has still not been run, the
rinse L.E.D. will light continuously, and the hopper drives will be disabled until a rinse sequence has been run.
RUNNING A RINSE SEQUENCE
1. Place the rinse/run switch in the rinse position.
2. Sequentially, or simultaneously, at each of the three positions dispense for at least 10 seconds.
3. After the rinse L.E.D. has extinguished, the rinse timer is reset.
4. Return the rinse/run switch to the run position.
DISPENSER USE
1. Simply place a cup on the drip tray beneath the desired dispensing tip.
2. Press the button to froth and dispense the beverage.
3. Release the button when the cup is approximately 2/3 full and allow the mixing chamber to drain.
NOTE - The mixing chamber must drain at the end of each dispense.
COLD BEVERAGE SET-UP (OPTIONAL)
Cold beverages may be dispensed from the left dispense position. Simply place the HOT/COLD switch near the
left whipper chamber in the “COLD” (upper) position.
6
29170 010413
ADJUSTMENTS
The hot or cold beverage solenoids are preset to dispense approximately 9/10 ounce per second. This amount
can be adjusted:
1. Disconnect the dispenser from the power source.
2. Remove the small left side access panel.
3. Rotate the control at the base of the desired solenoid(s) clockwise to decrease or counterclockwise to increase
the amount of water.
4. For cold beverage adjustment remove the 1-1/2" plug on the lower left side of the dispenser and rotate the
needle valve clockwise to decrease or counterclockwise to increase the amount of cold water.
HOPPER DISPENSE RATE OF PRODUCT
NOTE: The hopper dispense rates are preset at the factory. With 22 tooth gear and auger wire the preset dispense rate is approximately 3 to 5 grams per second. With 30 tooth gear and auger wire the preset dispense is
approximately 5 to 7 grams per second. The hopper dispense rates can be individually programmed to a range
of dispense rates from approximately 1.5 to 12 grams per second, as follows:
1. Place the rinse/run switch in the center (program) position.
2. Hold the increase/decrease switch in the desired (increase or decrease) position.
3. While holding the increase/decrease switch, press and release the dispense switch for the chamber you wish
to adjust. Each time the dispense switch is pressed, the rinse L.E.D. will flash, and the motor speed for that
hopper will be increased/decreased by approximately 2 1/2%.
4. Return the rinse/run switch to the run position after hopper motor speed adjustments are complete.
5. Once any of the three hopper motors has been programmed to the desired speed, either or both of the other
hopper motors can be set to the same speed as follows:
a. Place the rinse/run switch in the center (program) position.
b. Press and hold the dispense switch that has been programmed for the correct speed.
NOTE: Care must be taken not to exceed 5 seconds, or a hopper throw test will occur.
c. Momentarily press the dispense switch for the hopper motor to be programmed. The rinse L.E.D. will light
for approximately 1 second, indicating that the speeds have been set equal.
d. Release both dispense switches.
e. Repeat step 5. b. through 5. d. for remaining hopper motor if desired.
f. Return the rinse/run switch to the run position after hopper motor speed adjustments are complete.
HOPPER THROW TEST
The hopper throw rate, grams per second (g/s) or ounces per second (oz./s), can be checked by automatically
running the hopper motor for 10 seconds.
1. Remove the steam collector and mixing chamber from under the hopper to be checked.
2. Position a small cup under the hopper outlet.
3. Place the rinse/run switch in the center (program) position.
4. Press and hold the dispense switch of the appropriate chamber for 5 seconds. The hopper motor will run
for 10 seconds at the programmed speed.
5. Remove the cup and weigh the dispensed product. To calculate the throw rate (g/s or oz./s), divide the total
weight of the dispensed product by 10.
6. Replace the mixing chamber and steam collector, and return the rinse/run switch to the run position.
