Important Notes/Cautions – from the factory
Sanitation Requirements
Your Curtis Gemini System is Factory Pre-Set and Ready to Go… Right from the Carton.
Following are the Factory Settings for Gem-230A:
• Brew Temperature = 202°F
• Water Bypass = 35%
• Brew Volume = Set to 1½ gallons for Gem-230A.
System Requirements:
• Water Source 20 – 100 PSI (Minimum Flow Rate of 1 GPM)
• Electrical: See attached schematic for standard model or visit www.wilburcurtis.com for your model.
CAUTION: Please use
this setup procedure
before attempting to use
this brewer. Failure to follow the
instructions can result in injury or
the voiding of the warranty.
SETUP STEPS
The unit should be level (left to right and front to back), located on a solid counter top. Connect a water line from
the water filter to the brewer. NOTE: Some type of water filtration device must be used to maintain a troublefree operation. (In areas with extremely hard water, we suggest that a sedimentary and taste & odor filter be
installed.) This will prolong the life of your brewing system and enhance coffee quality.
The National Sanitation Foundation requires the following water connection:
1. A quick disconnect or additional coiled tubing (at least 2x the depth of the unit) so that the machine
can be moved for cleaning underneath.
2. In some areas an approved backflow prevention device may be required between the brewer and
the water supply.
1. A 3/8” NPT x 1/4” Flare elbow is supplied for water line connection. Use tubing sized sufficiently to provide a
minimum of 1.0 GPM.
2. Connect the unit to an appropriate electrical power circuit.
3. Remove the top cover. Make sure the primary thermostat, Index Nº 4 in parts list, is turned off.
4. Open the water supply valve.
5. Turn on the main breaker. Turn on power at the toggle switch behind the brewer. At this time water will start
to flow into the heating tank.
6. Turn on power at the ON/OFF switch on the front switch panel. This will energize the controls and the
switches will light up.
7. Place a clean Satellite on the warmer deck and push the warmer switch to the on position to preheat the
Satellite.
8. When the heating elements are covered with water, turn the primary thermostat on (twist the stem clockwise
as far as it will turn).
9. Replace the heating tank lid and top cover on the brewer.
Allow 15 minutes for the water in the tank to reach brewing temperature (202º F). After the initial warm-up,
recovery is instantaneous. You may brew continuously.

CARE AND
MAINTENANCE
Regular maintenance is essential in keeping your GEMINI system looking and working like new.
1. Remove the sprayhead (index Nº 14) from brewer and clean it once a week or more often in heavy lime areas.
CAUTION: Do not use
cleansers, bleach liquids,
or powders that contain
chlorine. These products cause
corrosion and pitting to stainless
steel and will void the warranty.
