Keys To A Successful Installation
Electrical: All FETCO dispensers require NEUTRAL. Ground is not an acceptable substitute. Installation
without neutral may cause damage to the electronic components.
The power connection to L1 on the terminal block must be at least 105 volts. Less than 105 volts will cause
The power switch has a built-in circuit breaker. To reset it, turn to the “off” position, and then back to the “on”
The wiring diagram for the dispenser is located on the inside of the cover.
Plumbing: This equipment is to be installed to comply with the applicable federal, state, or local plumbing codes.
The water line must be flushed thoroughly prior to connecting it to the dispenser to prevent debris from
contaminating the machine. An in-line water filter is strongly recommended.
Verify that the water line will provide at least 2 gallons per minute before connecting it to the dispenser.
General: Utilize a qualified beverage equipment service technician for installation.
Do not adjust the thermostat settings unless absolutely necessary. They are set at the factory for optimum
Installation Check List
The installation must comply with applicable federal, state, and local codes having jurisdiction at your location. Check
with your local inspectors to determine what codes will apply to the installation and operation of FETCO products.
Verify that the actual voltage at the electrical service connection is compatible with the specifications on the
dispenser’s serial number plate. Make sure the electrical service includes neutral. Ensure at this time that the
circuit breaker to the dispenser and the power switch on the dispenser are in the off position
The temperature and the water tank fill level are pre-set at the factory. There is no need to turn off the heaters
during the installation process. The heaters are disabled by the liquid level control board until water is sensed.
The heating process will start automatically when the tank has filled with water
Place the dispenser on a suitable counter or stand.
When the dispenser is in position for use, level the dispenser front to back as well as side to side by adjusting
. Remove the cover.
. Water connection:
Water inlet is a 3/8 inch compression fitting on HWB-25, 1/4 inch compression fitting on all other models.
The dispenser can be connected to a cold or hot water line. Cold water is preferred for best flavor, but hot
water will allow for faster recovery times. Use of an in-line water filter is strongly recommended.
Install a water shut off valve near the dispenser to facilitate service. If an in-line water filter is used, it should
be installed after the water shut off valve and in a position to facilitate filter replacement.
Flush the water supply line and filter before connecting it to the dispenser.
Verify that the water line will provide at least 2 gallons per minute and that the water pressure is between 20
and 75 psig.
Use a wrench on the factory fitting when connecting the incoming water line. This will reduce stress on the
internal connections and reduce the possibility of leaks developing after the installation has been completed.
