Basket Brew Error: Code 075 or NO BAS

This error code is associated with the brew basket, but it appears for a variety of reasons on different Fetco models. Here's a quick rundown.

CBS-2301e / 2302e

  • What is the potential issue? These models lack a brew basket sensor and a lock. A faulty connection exists on the jumper wiring connected to the top of the control board.
  • How do you fix the problem? For proper contact, you'll need an authorized technician to reconnect the jumper wire to the connector.

Faulty Lock or Sensor: CBS-2301s / 2302s

  • What is the potential issue? The brew basket's sensor or lock has failed. If you can pull out the basket during the brewing cycle, the lock has failed.
  • How do you fix the problem? To repair or replace the basket's sensor or lock, you must contact an authorized technician.
  • How do you get rid of the error code? On the control panel, press the flashing switch.

Loose or Misplaced Magnet: CBS-2301s / 2302s

  • What is the potential issue? This can also show if the magnet in the brew basket handle is loose or missing.
  • How do you fix the problem? Remove the handle and position the magnet correctly. If this continues, the basket may need to be replaced.

Initial Fill Error: Code 100

This will appear if the initial fill time exceeds 15 minutes.

  • What is the potential issue? The brewer's water supply has an insufficient flow rate.
  • How do you fix the problem? Check for short potting during the brewing cycle. After that, look for any clogs. A major cause is clogging in the water filter. Clear the clog as needed.
    How do you get rid of the error code? On the control panel, press the power button.

Refill Error: Code 101

If the initial fill time exceeds 15 minutes, this message will appear.

  • What exactly is the potential problem? The flow rate of the brewer's water supply is insufficient.
  • How do you resolve the issue? During the brewing cycle, keep an eye out for short potting. Then, look for any clogs. Clogging in the water filter is a major cause. As needed, clear the clog.
  • How do you remove the error code? Press the power button on the control panel.

Unwanted Fill: Code 102

This occurs when the brewer is idle and the fill valve is activated for more than 30 seconds within an hour.

  • What is the potential issue? The tank's water supply has an insufficient flow rate.
  • How do you fix the problem? Check for short potting during the brewing cycle. After that, look for any clogs. A major cause is clogging in the water filter. Clear the clog as needed.
  • How do you get rid of the error code? Turn the power off and on again.

Flat Line Temperature: Code 200

This occurs when the brewer requests heat but there is no rise in temperature of at least 2 degrees Fahrenheit within 10 minutes.

  • What is the potential issue? It's possible that the triac is closed, that the control board has a faulty output, or that the temperature is too high for the location altitude.
  • How do you fix the problem? Refer to your operation's manual for temperature settings at high altitudes. To resolve issues with the triac and control board, contact an authorized technician.
  • How do you get rid of the error code? Turn the power off and on again.

Heater Open: Code 201

Code 201, like error code 200, appears when the brewer calls for heat but there is no rise in temperature of at least 2 degrees Fahrenheit within 10 minutes. In this case, however, the error is disabled during the brewing cycle and when the hot water faucet is turned on.

  • What is the potential issue? The heating element has broken down.
  • How do you fix the problem? To repair or replace the heating element, contact an authorized technician.
  • How do you get rid of the error code? Turn the power off and on again.

Heater Short: Code 202

This occurs when the brewer does not request heat but the temperature rises by more than 5 degrees Fahrenheit.

  • What is the potential issue? It's possible that the triac is stuck in the closed position or that the control board has a bad output.
  • How do you fix the problem? To resolve issues with the triac or control board, contact an authorized technician.
  • How do you get rid of the error code? Switch to programming mode. Leave the programming mode.

Keypad Error: Code 255

This happens when a switch is held down for 45 seconds or more.

  • What is the potential issue? Either the user held the switch for too long or the switch has become stuck.
