USING YOUR PERCOLATOR
1.Wash the Percolator thoroughly before using for the first time.
(See "Cleaning Instructions" section in this manual.)
2.Remove Cover, Basket, Spreader and Pump Tube. Use cold, fresh
tap water to fill Percolator. Fill according to markings on inside
of Percolator for number of cups desired. Use cold tap water -
the automatic brewing cycle is timed to begin with a cold
NOTE: The bottom of the Pump Tube Spring marks the maximum
capacity of the Percolator.
3.Wet Coffee Basket to help keep small particles of coffee from sift-
ing through. Place Basket on Pump Tube. Add desired amount of
regular or percolator grind coffee to Basket.
4.Place Pump Tube with Basket into Percolator so bottom of tube is
set into Center Well. Place Spreader on top of Basket and snap
Cover onto Percolator. Attach cord to Percolator and plug into
standard household 120 volt AC wall outlet. Brewing begins
within seconds and continues at a cup-a-minute speed
5.When coffee brewing is complete, percolating will stop. The
Percolator 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.
Clean your burr mill before using it for the first time. Then, to ensure optimal mill function and durability, clean it regularly following these simple steps.
Always unplug your burr mill after use and before cleaning.
Open the hopper lid. Empty any whole beans from the hopper. Remove the top burr mill by rotating it clockwise. For better results hold the grind setting button while rotating the burr mill clockwise. This will allow you to clean the grinding wheel and the grinding compartment.
Clean the interior recesses with a soft brush. Note: Never use water or liquid for cleaning the lower grinding section of this appliance. BRUSH NOT INCLUDED.
Wipe the whole bean hopper, its lid and the mill exterior with a damp cloth.
The ground coffee chamber and lid can be washed in mild detergent and water. They both are top rack dishwasher safe. Do not immerse the mill or the whole bean hopper in water or any other liquid or place in dishwasher. Use only non-abrasive cleaners to remove stains.
After completely drying the whole bean hopper and top burr mill, replace the burr mill in position by aligning snaps with receptacle and rotating counterclockwise to lock it in position. For better results, hold the grind setting button while rotating the burr mill counterclockwise. Once the burr mill is in position, pull gently to check it is properly locked in position. If the burr mill comes out, repeat this step again.
Replace the ground coffee chamber and lid, making sure both snap securely into place.
Always unplug your burr mill after use and before cleaning.
Turn the whole bean chamber to the right until it can be lifted off the base. This will allow you to clean the grinding wheel. NOTE: Never use water or liquid for cleaning the lower grinding section of this appliance.
Clean interior recesses with a soft brush (not provided).
Wash the whole bean chamber and lid and the ground coffee chamber and lid in mild detergent and water. These items are only dishwasher safe on the top rack of your dishwasher. Wipe exterior with a damp cloth. Do not immerse mill in water or any other liquid or place in dishwasher. Use only non-abrasive cleaners to remove stains.
After completely drying, replace whole bean chamber. Important: when replacing whole bean chamber, screw on completely before setting grinding rate. Turn chamber clockwise (as viewed from top), until it will not turn. Fill with whole coffee beans for grinding and replace lid.
Replace ground coffee chamber and lid, making sure it snaps securely into place.
this is usually due to the hinged part of the capsule plate failing to return to the normal resting position after ejecting the first capsule. You can resolve this problem by occasionally pulling the capsule plate out of the unit and running it through the dishwasher. You can also scrub it with a toothbrush under hot soapy water. Coffee stains build up on the mechanism preventing the plate from dropping to the rested position. The second capsule hits this and jams rather than riding the ramp into the puncture plate.
The only thing that work well for me was Dishwasher liquid. put a litle in the pot with some real hot water, put the lid on and swirl for a minute, being careful not to spill. Then place in the maker filled with just enough water to fill the pot the rest of the way. Then shake and swirl over the sink, being very careful not to get that very hot water on you. You may have to do this twice. You will be surprized with all the junk that come out. Then rinse it a lot. Then I place vinegar and baking soda in the bottom and run it through the cycle twice . Very clean and fresh and the coffee tastes great. A lot of work though.
Add some automatic dishwasher detergent ( maybe 1/4 cup) and fill the rest of the pot up with very hot water. Swirl to combine. Let stand for a few hours. Use a bottle brush to scrub the pot. Or get some denture cleaner tablets and throw them into the pot with hot water. Let stand a few hours or overnight, then scrub with bottle brush. I've tried both methods on my coffee pot and both work great for me.
There realy not much of a manual for this type of coffee maker.
put water in to water line, put coffee in the metal basket, put the lid on the metal basket, put lid on the coffee maker, set it on the stove until it starts peculating let do it for 10-min then stop.
