b) Paper filter (8-12 cup, flat base basket
style with ~ 3¼"/8.25cm base). Ensure
that the paper filter is completely open
and touching the side walls and bottom
of the coffee basket.
Close the coffee basket lid. Press the
OPEN button to open the swing-out door.
Attach the coffee basket to the swing-out
door by ensuring the hinge area of the
coffee basket is firmly seated in its most
downward position on the two door hooks.
Close the door until it clicks shut.
The safety interlock system will
prevent operation if the coffee basket
is not in place, if it is not firmly seated
on the two door hooks, or if the
swing-out door is not closed. The LCD
screen will flash ‘EMPTY COFFEE
FILTER’ until the issues are resolved.
First Time Use Only
We recommend flushing the machine
to remove any dust particles or residues
from the manufacturing process. Follow
the proceeding instructions, ensuring to
completely fill the water tank (Step 1), select
‘12 CUPS’ (Step 3) and the ‘PRE-GROUND’
coffee setting (Step 4). However do not add
any coffee to the coffee basket. Once the
cycle is complete, discard the water from the
carafe and repeat the cycle again for best
results. The machine is now ready to use.
1. Fill the Water Tank
Press open the flip-top lid. Pour the desired
amount of cold, preferably filtered water into
the tank using a jug or the provided carafe.
If using the carafe, ensure the carafe lid is
securely locked in place. The LCD screen
will indicate the amount of water in the tank
as it is filled. The machine will beep when
full and the water level float will rise to
indicate the maximum level. Do not exceed
the 12 cup maximum. Doing so may cause
the carafe to overflow or water spillage at the
back of the machine. Close the flip-top lid.
Check the water level on the LCD
screen before use. We recommend
always keeping the water tank full.
The water tank should be refilled with
cold, preferably filtered water. Do not
fill with any other liquid.
Never pour water into the bean
hopper or grinding chamber area.
Doing so can cause the grinder to
clog. Only re-commence use when
the grinding chamber and grinding
burrs are completely dry. Refer to
Troubleshooting, ‘Moisture clogging
grinder’, page 29.
