  1. Unpack your new pour-over module and tap from their shipping containers.
    • Unpack your new pour-over module and tap from their shipping containers.

    • Please examine the module after unpacking for any damage that may have occurred during shipping. If anything looks out of place, please contact Modbar Support.

  2. Cut countertop using provided templates. M6 bolts are not required for the pour-over tap, as it does not see the same rotational force as the espresso tap. Use great care when cutting the counter-top holes! We recommend measuring the template dimensions with a tape measure or ruler to verify that it is printed to scale. Apply Alex Plus or equivalent acrylic latex or silicone caulk to the bottom of the tap before installing the tap into the counter as shown.  Use your finger to wipe away any excess caulk, wetting your finger will help to make a clean caulk line.

    • Always be sure the module power switch is off while installing to avoid damaging the heating elements! It is easy to inadvertantly turn the power switch on while handling the module during installation.

  5. Place module in the desired location under the counter. The module must be installed within 5 feet of the tap in order for the electrical and fluid connections to route correctly.

    • The module must be installed within 5 feet of the tap in order for the electrical and fluid connections to route correctly.

    • Connect water inlet and drain tubes, turn on water supply, and check for any leaks on the water inlet.

    • Do not stack modules directly on top of each other

  6. Connect tap fluid and electrical connections to the module. Ensure that the tube seats completely into the tap push-connect fitting. It is important to ensure that the tap tube drains back to the module and is trimmed to size. Please refer to the attached installation poster here. Ensure that the power switch is in the middle, or off position before continuing.

    • Turn the power switch to the left position (counter clockwise), to allow the module to prime before heating.

    • Press either one of the buttons on the tap to start dispensing.

    • Once water pours from the tap, allow the unit to continue to dispense water for 30 seconds before pressing the button again to cease dispensing. This will ensure that the boilers are fully primed and free of air.

    • From the factory, the modules are programmed to dispense in manual mode. The tap will dispense until the button is pressed a second time. For information on how to program the buttons, please reference the operating manual.

  8. At this point it is safe to turn the switch to the right position and heat the boilers. The machine will be ready for use in approximately 5 minutes.
