Electrical wiring for 120/208 service as opposed to 120/240 service

I'm trying to figure out how to wire this coffeemaker for 120/208 service. The manual states that "model 35 requires 3-wire, grounded service rated 120/208 or 120/240 volts ac, 20 amp, single phase, 60 Hz.", and 240 is not an option in the location it's going into. I would like to know how to connect it internally, what type of cord toget, and what type of plug cap to get (and how to wire that as well). Thank you for any and all help.... the outlets in the location (office breakroom) are all standard, and I was thinking of plugging it into where the fridge is as that is for sure rared for 20 amp.....

    I have the same model and am trying to convert to 120v for home use.Is there any way to rewire this model, or any 240v circuit for 120v? I am going to be disconnecting the 2 top warming elements, so the total amperage required will be considerably less.

I have the same problem...and it appears to me that all the electronics operate off 120V and only the heater element is connected to the red wire and gets 240V. The schematic shows that the model 15 and model 20 simply connect the heater to the white wire.

I would imagine that you can simply jumper the red to the white and the heater will get half the power but it should operate otherwise normal.

Your machine requires 208-240 volts to operate with each leg being about 120 volts. Move refrigerators are 120 volts so even though you have 20 amps you probably only have 120 volts.

You can go to the Bunn website (bunnomatic.com) click on Commercial then on Publications then Illustrated Parts and Service manuals and download the manual for your machine that shows how the wiring hooks up in the machine and the type of cord the machine requires to handle the voltage.

The plug you need must match the receptacle in the wall and there are numerous 220volt plugs and receptacles on the market. Don't get a dryer plug instead try for a twist lock as they are more reliable.

I need to replace my Krups 453 Thermal fuse (ms-0061607). Where can I find one or is there a replacement?


They are obsolete and quite a high temperature rating for a coffeemaker (300 deg C) You could get someone to replace it with a 240 deg C microtemp and see how that works out, boiling is 100 deg C and coffee goes into your cup below that so it is quite reasonable to expect 240 deg C to be fine. I'm pretty sure that is the highest temperature microtemp available.

Where is the fuse located


All coffee makers have a thermal fuse set to a certain maximum temperature. Once that temperature has been reached the fuse opens and cannot be reset. The fuse is located inside the body of the machine and is in the wiring and usuall has a protective sleeve to cover the electrical leads. The fuse looks like a resistor or diode with electrical leads crimped in the wiring. You may check the fuse with a multimeter with power off, meter set on ohms, check for continuity across the fuse. You must purchase a new fuse of the correct temperature rating (this is stamped on the device) and the leads crimped or soldered in place of the old fuse. I find thermal fuses online at prices less than $2.00.

Why isn't my coffeemaker brewing coffee?


Hi,
Plz try the following steps ..hope it serves ur purpose:

  1. Make sure the coffeemaker is plugged into a working 120V electrical outlet.
  2. Make sure the power switch is turned on.
  3. Make sure the water reservoir has water in it.
  4. The unit may require cleaning to remove mineral deposits that build up over time.
  5. If the coffeemaker is equipped with a clock and the clock is working properly but the unit will not brew, please contact the nearest Authorized Service Center.
Thanx

I dont know how to make coffee


Water Level ////Amount of Ground Coffee

42 Cups --2 ½ Cups
36 Cups-- 2 Cups
30 Cups- -1 ¾ Cups
28 Cups --1 2/3 Cups
24 Cups --1 ½ Cups
22 Cups --1 ½ Cups
18 Cups-- 1 ¼ Cups
12 Cups --1 Cup

1. With basket and stem removed, fill coffeemaker with COLD water to desired level using the cup markings on inside of coffeemaker as a guide. Do not make less than 12 or more than maximum capacity of the coffeemaker at one time.
2. Place stem into heating unit in bottom of coffeemaker, then put basket on stem. Spread the recommended amount of ground coffee evenly into the basket. See chart. Use regular electric perk grind coffee or coffee ground for all coffeemakers. Do not use drip or finely ground coffee as flooding of the basket can occur.
3. Turn cover in place on coffeemaker. To reduce coffee spills, especially if coffeemaker is tipped over, make sure cover has been turned clockwise until it is completely secured in the handle slots. (Note the arrows on the cover for correct turning.) The cover temporarily reduces coffee spilage if coffeemaker is tipped over, so care should be used when moving coffeemaker.
4. Place coffeemaker on a dry, level surface. Attach cord to coffeemaker and plug into a 120 volt AC electrical outlet ONLY.
5. Coffeemaker stops perking automatically. (Each cup of coffee requires about 1 minute brewing time) Serving light will glow when coffee is ready. Before serving, use a hot pad to remove cover, then carefully remove stem and basket from coffeemaker as coffee and grounds are HOT. If not removed, bitter oils from the coffee grounds will drip into coffee. Replace the cover making sure it is completely secured into the handle slots.
6. Coffee will remain at serving temperature as long as coffeemaker is connected to outlet. (if you have an insulated coffeemaker, the sealed-air insulation will keep coffee hot for up to two hours without electricity.) To serve, place cup and saucer under faucet and press down on handle. If a continuous flow is desired to fill a carafe, lift handle straight up until it locks into open position. When approximately one cup of coffee remains in coffeemaker, disconnect from outlet.
TO MAKE MORE COFFEE: If another pot of coffee is desired right away, partially fill coffeemaker with cold water to reset the thermostat. Pour out water, refill with cold water and repeat steps 1-6.
TO HEAT WATER FOR INSTANT BEVERAGES: Plain water may be heated in your coffeemaker for use with instant beverages. Simply fill the clean coffeemaker with cold water to the desired cup level, and then place the stem and empty coffee basket in place. Using the stem and empty basket will heat the water more uniformly. Secure cover in place and plug coffeemaker in. Heat water until perking stops and serving light comes on. Unplug coffeemaker when less than 1 cup remains. Other than making coffee or heating water, no other liquid should be heated in coffeemaker as damage to heating unit can occur.
When coffeemaker is used to heat water only, the metal inside will discolor which is normal and does not affect performance or the water heated in the coffeemaker. Refer to Special Cleaning Instructions in this manual for removing discoloration as well as mineral deposits, which form inside the coffeemaker when heating water. If these deposits are not removed, pitting of the metal inside may occur and result in damage to coffeemaker. Refer to the cleaning your coffeemaker section

You would have to order the part from the manufacture if you were to fix it yourself. It may need new crimp connectors for the switch.

It is best to take the coffeemaker to an appliance service center. There are some serious safety issues when servicing these appliances. The internal parts are not always simple to replace. They use crimped wire connectors and specialized parts. There are crimping tools required to replace these connectors.

For something like a coffeemaker you may find it not feasible to service. The parts and labor can add up to a fair amount.

Use Safety. Unplug. If You want to Handy Try, Open Bottom by removing Screws. Find ac Power cord wires and in loop should be a METAL small Tiny Protection Temperature Thermal Device that is Probally open. Your Local appliance place can sell you this as You need to get right temperature. Can Plug in Replacement or Twist with wires for support. Switch could be Intermittent ( Open ) also and a Replacement should Snap into Place and Leads attached as original or a safe way. A Simple Meter ( Harbor Freight ) Digital Meter only $3 will work for testing.
