4. INSTALLATION:
Electrical I nstallation:
• Electrical specification: 2.4kW-230VAC-50/60Hz
• A moulded 13A IEC power cord is provided. This should be plugged into the IEC connection
on the base of the boiler and plugged into a suitable 13A power outlet.
• When installing the machine, always observe the local regulations and standards.
Plumbing Installation:
• Mains water pressure required (limits): 5-50psi (35-345kPa) 0.5 – 5.0 bar
• Fit a stop Valve on a cold water line and attach a 3/4" BSP male fitting, (e.g. 3/4" x 1/2" 311
or washing machine type stop valve).
• For US versions use 3/8” NPT male fitting.
• Connect straight tailpiece of the hose to the stop valve fitting. Make sure that the preattached sealing washer is fitted.
• Turn on the water to flush any impurities, dust etc. from the inlet hose and water pipe. Allow
several litres through.
• Connect right-angled tailpiece of the hose to the inlet valve of the boiler (3/4" BSP). Make
sure the sealing washer is fitted here also.
• Turn on water and check for leaks.
Installation of SP9 Head Unit:
A full A4 sheet sized version of the counter cut-out template,
seen opposite in Figure 1, can be found on the last page of
this manual.
The cut-out is simply two 80mm holes centred 83mm apart.
Alternatively, the area outlined in red, bounded by the two
circles and the parallel lines (obround shape) can be cut out
using a jig-saw or similar.
Once the cut-out is complete, mount the SP9 Head Unit using
the brackets supplied. See Figure 3, below. Use the
appropriate rubber spacers on the brackets to match the
thickness of the counter.
Attach the electrical connector and the two hoses to the
appropriate ports on the under counter unit.
A goes to A, B goes to B and DIN goes to DIN.
For a Single Head System, use A1, B1 and DIN1.
For a Twin Head System, connect Head Unit 1 as in a Single
Head System. Connect Head Unit 2 to A2, B2 and DIN2.
The hoses should be secured with the supplied hose clips.
Service manual April 2017 SP9 system
Page 5 of 49
The Undercounter Unit should ideally be positioned directly below the Head unit installed position.
When mounting Twin Head Units, ensure a minimum of 100mm between units, not just
between cut-outs, as indicated in Figure 2, below.
The distance between the SP9 Head Unit and the Under Counter unit should be NO MORE
than 400mm.
Max distance between head and boiler refers to the length of the tubing. Since the tubing is
never a straight line, actual distance between head and boiler can be substantially less than
400mm, depending on alignment of units.
Drainage – Connect drip tray, boiler vent and head vent to a drain via a tundish or some
other method of open connection to drain. Do not connect these three outlets together in a
closed configuration using T-piece or double T-piece. Always allow these to “breath”.

Operating SP9 Undercounter Unit for the First Time:
• Check that all installation procedures have been carried out.
• Ensure water is connected to unit, valve is turned on and power cord is connected and
plugged in to wall socket.
• The “power on” light will glow green and the machine will fill to a safe level, above the
elements, before heating. The display will show the current water temperature and the
status “Filling…”
• The “Ready/Status” light will cycle two red flashes while the machine is filling to the safe
level.
• After this amount of water has heated to about 94ºC, the boiler will draw more water in until
the temperature drops by 1 or 2 degrees. The boiler will then heat again. This heat fill cycle
continues until the boiler is full.
• Ensure the Undercounter unit is set to SP9 mode for use with the SP9 brewer. See Menu
Navigation section in this manual
• While filling, the “Ready/Status” light will remain blank.
• The “Ready/Status” light will glow green when the machine is both full and up to normal
operating temperature. Allow approximately 15 minutes.
• The boiler is now ready for use – the display will show the Water Temperature and the
status “READY”.
5. SETUP AND CALIBRATION:
Operating the Head Unit for the first time:
To help prevent heat loss between the Undercounter unit and the Head unit the silicone hose can
be insulated with hose insulation. Simply cut the insulation to the correct length required.
Once the Head Unit installation procedure has been carried out, place a 1 litre jug under the
dispense head. Set the dispense volume to 750ml and press the start switch twice. This will
dispense 750ml in one delivery, without pausing. Measure the dispensed volume to confirm factory
calibration (750ml + 10ml). If the volume is not satisfactory, proceed to the calibration procedure
below to calibrate the Head Unit. The calibration should only be conducted by a trained service
engineer. See guidelines below.
Dispense Volume Calibration
1. Once all installation procedures are carried out the Head Unit is ready to be calibrated.
2. Turn volume dial to Max. Set Brew Time to 2 minutes.
3. Place large container (>1 litre) of known weight under spray head.
4. Initiate brew.
5. Weigh & record brew output.
6. The output should be 750g, plus or minus 10g.
7. If output is within 10g of 750g calibration is complete.
8. If not, enter calibration mode by holding down toggle switch for approimately 3 sec.
Service manual April 2017 SP9 system
Page 8 of 49
9. A long beep will sound to confirm the unit is in calibration mode.
10. Enter the volume recorded via the brew switch using the following example:
➢ If 724g was measured
➢ The toggle switch is used to input each digit successively
➢ To enter ‘7’ the toggle switch is toggled 7 times
➢ A long beep will sound
➢ To enter the ‘2’ toggle the toggle switch 2 times
➢ A long beep will sound
➢ To enter the ‘4’ toggle the toggle switch 4 times
➢ To enter a ‘0’ value simply do not toggle the toggle switch.
➢ If calibration is successful a long beep will sound at the end of the process. If not, multiple
short beeps will sound
11. Verify calibration by repeating steps 2 – 5.
NOTE: SP9 head should allow you to enter a value between 375 and 999 in calibration.
If your volume is above 1000 you should do it in 2 stages – first enter 999, then do the full brew and
enter measured value in calibration.
Figure 5.
SP9 Revision 1.6 has additional calibration steps as outlined below.
If the dispensed volume from the SP9 is not linear, the following additional calibration can be
completed to more closely match the printed scale to the dispense volume.
To calibrate SP9 scale (Revision 1.6 and later ONLY):
Set dial to 200ml, hold toggle switch down until second beep is heard.
Set dial to 700ml, hold toggle switch down until third beep is heard.
Scale is now calibrated.
Additional functionality of SP9 Revision 1.6:
If a brew is cancelled after any water has been dispensed, the pump I the boiler will stop and the
dump/dispense valve will operate for 5 seconds to purge water from the SP9 head.
Service manual April 2017 SP9 system

6. OVERVIEW & OPERATION:
SP9 – EFFORTLESS EXCEPTIONAL COFFEE BY THE CUP
SP9 is a single-portion brewer designed to deliver volumes from 150ml to 750ml. It is designed to
work with several different existing brewing devices from Kalita right through to Chemex.
SP9 also has a Continuous Dispense Mode for filling tea pots or other hot beverage vessels.
SP9 can be configured as a Twin System, with two head units operating independently from a
single under counter unit.
SP9 can also be configured as a Single System, with a single head unit operating with a single
under counter unit.
In brew mode, once the brew switch is toggled, SP9 will recirculate hot water for 15 seconds to
preheat the system. It will then start to dispense water in 9 pulses. The first pulse is 12% of the
total volume selected, designed as a pre-infusion stage. The remaining 8 pulses are all of equal
volume of 11% of total volume selected.
Water Volume can be varied from 150ml to 750ml. Brew Time can be varied from 1 to 5 minutes.
The under-counter unit can deliver 100 to 120 cups of water per hour at a flow rate of 1.3 litres/min.
Before brewing you should become familiar with the SP9 system controls.

13. ROUTINE MAINTENANCE:
It is a common occurrence for limescale to build up in the tank of a water boiler. The
amount of limescale build up is relative to the water hardness in a particular area.
The most common error indication on a boiler is the Ready light giving two red flashes
between pauses, indicating that water can’t be seen in the tank. This can be caused by a
number of issues, most commonly, limescale or film build up on the water level probes.
Descaling Procedure:
➢ Isolate machine from power supply.
➢ Isolate machine from water supply.
➢ ALLOW TO COOL COMPLETELY!
➢ Drain water from machine.
➢ Remove all lids.
➢ Remove as much scale as possible by hand, paying particular attention to level probes
(White plastic with steel tab). Be very careful not to damage any attachments.
➢ Use ScaleKleen, Marco part No. 8000270 or similar. Follow instructions carefully.
➢ Thoroughly clean and flush the machine before re-use.
➢ Clean water level probes with ScotchBrite
➢ Follow installation and first time operation instructions
NB: Always clean the water level probes after descaling and rinsing the tank.
To Clean Water Level Probes:
➢ Turn off water feed to unit
➢ Dispense as much water from unit as possible using two clicks at the head unit
➢ Turn off unit at wall socket or unplug from wall socket
➢ Remove top cover from boiler
➢ Remove tank lid from tank
➢ Identify water level probes – flat metal tabs inside water tank - 3 probes
➢ Thoroughly clean probes with ScotchBrite (or scouring pad)
➢ Replace tank lid and top cover
➢ Reconnect power and water to boiler and operate as normal

connections and the DIP-switch
settings.
Remove power to the under counter
unit and remove all connections from
the main control board. Using a pillar
release tool (or a BIC biro with the refill
removed) release each pillar in turn
while applying slight pressure to the
back of the control board. Once all
pillars have been released, remove the
board completely.
Figure 15.
Before fitting the replacement main control board, ensure the DIP-switch settings correspond to
those of the original control board, as noted earlier.
Ensure all connections have been replaced in the correct positions before applying power to the
machine. The diagram on the previous page details all connection points on the main control
board.
Pump Replacement
To remove a pump, cut the retaining cable ties,
unplug the electrical connections and
remove the silicon hose from the outlet port on
the pump.
The pump is push-fit and is held in place by the

Pull or pry the pump from the seal to remove.
Follow the instructions above in reverse to
replace the pump.
Figure 16.
Display Board Replacement
Remove the ribbon cable from the display
board. Remove the four retaining nuts.
When removing the display board, be careful
not to lose any spacers, as the distance
between the display board and front panel is
critical to the operation of the switches on the
board.
Fit the replacement board and replace the four
retaining nuts.
Do not over-tighten, as this will affect the
distance between the front panel and the
display board.
Figure 17.
24vdc Power Supply Replacement
Disconnect power to the under counter unit. The cable connections can be removed before
removal of the 24vdc power supply or after the retaining screws have been removed, depending on
access and preference.
The 24vdc power supply is retained on its mounting bracket by two screws, accessible from the
bottom of the bracket. Remove the two screws (and the cable connections, if applicable) and
remove the 24vdc power supply. Replace the 24vdc power supply and the cable connections.
Ensure the connections are replaced back in to the correct terminals.
Water Level Probes Replacement
