MODEL MEU45
Automatic Stainless
Steel Coffee Urn
IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should
always be followed to reduce the risk of fire, electric shock and injury
to persons, including the following:
• Read all instructions.
• Do not touch hot surfaces. Use handles or knobs. Use oven
mitts or pot holders.
• Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is used
near children. This appliance is not for use by children.
• To protect against fire, electric shock and injury to persons, do
not immerse cord, plug or base in water or other liquid.
• Do not let cord hang over the edge of table or counter, or touch
hot surfaces.
• Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug or
after the appliance malfunctions, or has been damaged in any
manner. Contact Consumer Service for return authorization,
examination, repair or adjustment.
• The use of accessory attachments not recommended by the
appliance manufacturer may cause fire, electric shock, or injury
to persons.
• Do not place on or near hot gas or electric burner, or in a
heated oven.
• Always attach the plug to appliance first, then plug the cord into
the wall outlet. To disconnect, remove plug from wall outlet, then
from appliance. Always hold the plug, but never pull the cord.
• Unplug from outlet when not in use and before cleaning. Allow
to cool before putting on or taking off parts, and before
cleaning the appliance.
• Extreme caution must be used when moving coffee urn
containing hot liquids.
• Make sure that the cover is securely in place before brewing
and when serving coffee. When placing the cover on the body
of the coffee urn, make sure the locking tabs are in the front and
back of the handles. Grasp the knob carefully and turn the cover
clockwise until the locking tabs are fully engaged inside the
handles of the coffee urn.
• Scalding may occur if the cover is removed during the brewing
cycle. When removing the cover from the body of the coffee urn,
grasp the knob carefully and turn the cover counterclockwise to unlock the lid.

FOR COMMERCIAL AND HOUSEHOLD USE
The Melitta® Coffee Urn
It is America’s classically styled, fully automatic Coffee Urn. It is
crafted of durable stainless steel with a gleaming finish for lasting
service and beauty. Its graceful, unique design and high polish
make a perfect presentation at the buffet table.
It brews hot rich coffee at a cup-a-minute speed, and automatically
keeps it hot and fresh-tasting.
Short Cord Instructions
CAUTION: A short power supply cord is provided to reduce the
risk of personal injury resulting from becoming entangled in or
tripping over a longer cord. Extension cords are available from
local hardware stores and may be used if care is exercised in their
use. If an extension cord is required, special care and caution is
necessary. Also, (1) the marked electrical rating of the extension
cord should be at least as great as the electrical rating of the
appliance, (2) should be a grounding-type 3-wire cord, and (3) the
cord should be arranged so that it will not drape over the
countertop or tabletop where it can be pulled on by children or
tripped over unintentionally.
GROUNDED-TYPE PLUG: This appliance has a 3-prong
grounded-type plug. This plug will only fit into an electrical outlet
made for a 3-prong plug. This is a safety feature. If the plug should
fail to fit the outlet, contact a qualified electrician. Do not attempt
to defeat this safety feature.
3
ELECTRIC POWER: If the electric circuit is overloaded with other
appliances, your appliance may not operate properly. It should be
operated on a separate electrical circuit from other appliances.

Using the Coffee Urn
1. Wash the Coffee Urn thoroughly before using for the first time.
(See “Care and Cleaning Instructions” section in this use and
care guide.)
2. Remove cover, pump tube, spreader, and basket. Check to
see that spigot is closed. Use cold, fresh tap water to fill
Coffee Urn. DO NOT OVERFILL OR UNDERFILL. Fill according to markings on inside of Urn for number of cups desired.
Use cold tap water as the automatic brewing cycle is timed to
begin with a cold water start.
NOTE: Do not brew less than 20 cups of coffee.
3. Wet basket to help keep small particles of coffee from sifting
through. Add desired amount of regular or percolator grind
coffee to basket. (Do not use drip or finely ground coffee.)
The following chart suggests amount of coffee to use for medium
brew; amounts can be varied to suit personal taste and particular
coffees.

4. Place the basket on the pump tube and cover with spreader.
(Make sure the spring is on the pump tube.) Then, by holding
the top end of the pump tube, place it into the Coffee Urn.
Make sure the bottom of the pump tube is properly seated on
the perk well in the center.
5. Replace the Urn cover and secure in position by turning cover
clockwise until cover tabs fit into handle slots.
6. Plug into 3-slot grounded 120 volt AC wall outlet. The Power
ON light will come on. To avoid unnecessary strain on the
heating mechanism, PLUG IN COFFEE URN AFTER THE
WATER AND COFFEE ARE ADDED AND THE COVER IS
SECURELY IN PLACE. NEVER PLUG IN COFFEE URN
WITHOUT WATER INSIDE.

7. When coffee brewing is complete, percolating will stop and the
READY light will come on. The Urn automatically switches to
“keep warm” setting to preserve fresh-tasting coffee at hot,
ready-to-serve temperature.
For best flavor, remove coffee basket, SPREADER and pump
tube when brewing is completed.
REMOVE PARTS CAREFULLY: COFFEE URN AND PARTS
WILL BE HOT! ALWAYS USE OVEN MITTS OR POT
HOLDERS.
8. The 2-way spigot allows you to pour one cup of coffee at a
time by pressing down on the spigot lever. For continuous
pouring, extend the spigot lever up.
9. When finished, unplug and allow to cool, see CARE AND
CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS.
NOTES:
• To make additional coffee, rinse the coffee urn and parts with
cold water and repeat steps 1 through 7.
• To preserve taste it is not recommended to reheat coffee.
Unplug the Urn when only 1 or 2 cups of coffee remain.
Care and Cleaning
1. After each use and before washing, unplug power cord from
wall outlet and allow the unit to cool.
2. Remove cover and all internal parts carefully - parts, coffee
grounds, and remaining coffee may still be hot.
3. Wash the inside of the coffee urn and the parts with warm,
soapy water. Rinse thoroughly and dry. DO NOT IMMERSE
THE BASE OF THE COFFEE URN IN WATER. Pump tube
(with spring), basket spreader, and cover with glass knob may
be washed in the dishwasher. When washing the pump tube,
make sure the WASHER on the bottom remains loose. If coffee
grounds are trapped in this area hold the pump tube under
running water or use a wooden tooth pick to remove them.
4. It may be necessary to clean the glass knob from time to time.
Wash the glass knob and nut using non-abrasive cleanser,
rinse and dry with a towel. To replace the glass knob after
cleaning, align the tabs on the glass knob with the notches in
the hole of the cover and screw on the nut. NOTE: Tighten the
nut using your hands only. Do not over tighten or place hot
6
glass knob in cold water as this may crack or break the knob.
5. Wipe outside with damp cloth and dry with a towel. Remove
urn cover before storing.
6. After repeated use, there may be some coffee stains and
accumulation of oils that may cause a bitter taste. Periodically,
use a coffee-stain remover or special cleanser (such as
“Dip-it”) and follow package directions for cleaning. Rinse well
after cleaning. Do not use abrasive cleansers or pads on
outside, inside or any parts of the coffee urn as scratching will
occur.
Any servicing requiring disassembly other than the above
cleaning must be performed by a qualified appliance repair
technician.
