It depends on your brewer. Most will stay on as long as power is applied. IE; the Bunn pour over brewers are always on as these are office machines that always have coffee on around the clock. The only way to turn them off is to unplug them (or on/off switch)
* Check your manual for the options of the main heating plate. Most brands will have a separate switch for each 'side' warmer plate. Turn them on or off as needed. Note; try not to leave a brewed coffee pot on heat longer than 45 mins. Transfer brewed coffee to an 'Air pump" pot or similar thermos decanter.
* Larger brewers (1 gal and up) don't use warmers and directly brew into a decanter. These decanters are replaced with each brew and moved to the serving location. Some of the larger decanters have built in warmers using warmer power stations.
* Most (older) home brewers stay on as long as power is applied or On/off brew switch is on.
* Some of the newer (last 5 years) have auto shut off. But you must check your model and manual if it has this function which may require the customer to set it up for auto shut off option.
* Final, check with your MFR or coffee vendor. Especially if your equipment is on loan from a vendor. Have the vendor check your brewer and maintenance. They should advise you of the proper brewing methods for this brewer.
You should call your vendor for service on any commercial brewer. (Especially if it's on loan from them)
*** the following is for information only as all repairs should be performed by a qualified tech.***
Most commercial (plumb in water line) has a start switch activates the timer (analog or digital) board which turns on the water feed to the brew tank. This forces previously heated water out and sprayed over the ground coffee in the brew funnel. Coffee then drips into the decanter. Under filling is caused by un-calibrated timer or interment timing.
* The timer comes in two types; Dial (old) and Digital. If it's the dial then a simple turn of the dial will make less or more water flow to decanter. You MUST re-brew (no coffee, but use funnel) into the decanter or pot that you plan to use. Don't mix up different size pots as the timer is only good for 1 setting. Turn dial and brew once to check. Keep checking with a brew after each adjustment. Do a final brew just to be sure.
* The digital timer is a bit more complicated to adjust. Sorry, too many switches and options to go into it here. Check your MFR online for a manual (usually a FREE download). Several methods may be listed.
* If it does not adjust or won't keep the set time then. Replace the timer. Digital timers tend to be sensitive to electrical storms. Analog timers have a dial and are more tolerant of electrical surges.
* Check the water fill solenoid. Should be a definite click when activated. Water filling sound should be very clear.
* No water flow then check the water supply line if it's on.
* Final; this brewer needs service. Call your coffee vendor for advice.
P.S., Older timers usually are reliable. It may have been set for a larger decanter or pump pot. The pump pots come in 2.5L and 3L for the big boys. Decanters are 10 cup and standard 12 cup. Check your office as there may be an unused pump pot or small decanter in a cupboard that got put away for making "too little" coffee. Try a brew in this smaller pot. Any change in pot size requires an adjustment to the timer. This is the only way to get "Less" or "More" out of the brewer. (Yes, if you have a "Pour Over" function for one time special brews. Check the manual for this option.)
Ahh, not a good idea. No brand or model given so this is just what I've come across at work.
* Most brewers use digital timers. Even the $10 units at Wal-mart are digital. The timer is on a circuit board so pulling or cutting a wire is out. Besides most unit I've come across don't use the "Delay" timer unless you set it. Most will turn on to brew after the delay time has been reached. There should be no reason to push the button to brew on a "Delay Brew" setting.
* Smart plug? Like an outlet with a timed operation period? (Boss must really want to cut electrical costs.)
* Brewing By-pass is usually seen on very large +5 gal brewers or "Super Automatic Espresso" machines. Both types are costly to run and uses expensive supplies. Hence the need for owners to limit their operational use. All do have by-pass codes or keys though If you don't have it then I guess the boss doesn't want anyone else to operate it.
* But if your a Rebel then some machines will let you change the clock (time) to fool it thinking it's opening time. (I've used this trick to overcome 'Maintenance Due' errors in order to just see if the machine can make coffee.)
**BUT you perform any of the above at your own risk!***
First I'm not a Brewmatic tech, but I have worked on this and other similar brands. You should call your vendor for service. Especially if this equip is on loan. *** the following is for information only.***
* This brewer has a multiple timer selection as well as multi function. (it can brew in different ways and sizes.)
* The batch selector determines the brew time. This is set up according to your needs and the pots you will be using. If you change pots then the machine needs to be re-calibrated to the new sized pots.
* Each timer setting needs to be individually calibrated and checked. This is usually done by the tech. Some brewers can be set without taking the cover off but most are locked out by the vendor to prevent tampering. You will need the operator/tech manual to make adjustments. (check your MFR online site)
* There is usually 2 tubes from the tank (top) to the brew head. The 2nd tube which usually branches off the brewing tube is a by-pass port which will trickle down between the wire basket and funnel. This is why it is important to keep the metal wire basket inside the larger metal brew funnel. Some may come with a separate by-pass solenoid but most have a needle valve. I usually set this needle valve by closing it all the way down (clock-wise) and opening it back up 3 full turn (counter-clockwise) I've found and average of 3-1/2 turns works for most 1 gallon brews. Opening it more will give you more watery brew and closing it down a stronger and sometimes bitter brew. It really depends on your grind size and brew amount. You will need to test it at least 3 - 5 full brews to find the sweet spot. But, stick with 3-1/2 turns if your not sure.
* If there is a 3d tube , it usually runs to the hot water faucet which is gravity fed so it does not need a solenoid valve.
* Some brands may have one more tube that has a solenoid attached which usually runs to the middle of the brewer near the top of the decanter. This is the water by-pass for Iced tea. Tea brews into the funnel the same as coffee but the funnel has a smaller drip hole. This allows the tea to steep longer in the funnel. This tea concentrate is then cooled down with the addition of cold water from this extra middle port. Most brewers with the tea option has a taller appearance to fit the tall Iced tea dispenser.
* Final; the brewing spray head should fill with hot water unless the timer or brew solenoid is not working.
* Short brews can also be caused by water probe or water control board problems. Check the water probe for crud or fixed too low in the tank. Low water in tank will lead to slower brewing and longer brew times.
* Brews are also affected by water fill valves. Not opening or intermitent operation. Note some valves are not rated for hot water feed. If your connected to a hot water line then the inlet valve needs to be rated for hot water.
* Final, check if your operators are pushing the right batch size button. Call your coffee vendor for help.
First set the clock on the brewer with the unit plugged in. Press and hold the Hour and Minute buttons until the current time is set. Next press the Delay Brew button while using the Hour and Minute buttons to reach the time you want the coffee to begin brewing.
Set up the coffee maker with ground coffee or beans and sufficient water in the reservoir then follow the directions below.
For brewing with fresh ground beans, press and hold the Delay Brew button until it flashes then press Select once. The Grind and Brew light should come on and the Delay Brew light should become steady.
For ground coffee, press and hold the Delay Brew button and then press Select twice. The Brew Only light and the Delay Brew light should both be on and steady.
Check the line where the water goes to the brew unit(be careful), disconnect and try to brew coffee, if water exits then the blockage is elsewhere, check the line where it goes into the white plastic valve behind brew unit, if water flows then check the brew unit make sure it is not blocked at the screen.
We could have 2 things going, the easiest is to remove the spray head, and using the deliming spring clean out the brew tube. The hard way is to check the water level, brew 2 pots to check level, if you get the exact amount in both pots, then wee will program the brewer. Depending the model you might have a timer knob behind panel or a circuit board. If timer knob then turn to a longer time settings. If a circuit board the settings and instruction are pasted on the front label.
IF YOUR HAVING ISSUES WITH THE ACTUAL BREW OR CLEANING CYCLE AND IT WILL NOT WORK, THERE IS NO TROUBLE SHOOTING THAT CAN BE DONE. MR COFFEE CARRIES A YEAR WARRANTY SO YOU SHOULD CALL THEM TO HAVE THEM REPLACE THE UNIT.
