- Sep 19, 2007Howdy Everyone!
I'm Robert Harmon (AKA: Tex on Coffee Geek) and I'm the moderator of
this user group.
I've owned a Bunn ES-1A for a couple of years and have nothing but
good things to say about them. I've modified my machine by adding a
PID temperature controller. This replaced the OEM pressure stat
(PSTAT) that controls the boiler temperature. I made this modification
because the PSTAT has mechanical relays that make a rather loud
clacking sound as they open and close.
An added benefit of the modification was improved boiler temperature
stability. I've also insulated the boiler of my machine. Hopefully
this mod is saving me some money, but I did it because I leave the
machine on 24/7 and it generates a LOT of heat. Now it's much more
comfortable to work around the machine.
Again, welcome to our user group. Look around and if you have a Bunn
consider joining us as a full member.
