The coffeemaker will keep coffee warm for 2 hours before it automatically shuts off.

display indicates "p.m." time. Press the MIN button. Once set, clock continues to keep
time unless coffeemaker is unplugged or a power failure occurs. Clock can only be reset
when in the flashing mode.
2. To set the Auto-Brew time: Press the PROG button and the light near the AUTO button
starts flashing indicating it is being programmed. Press the HOUR, then MIN buttons to set
the time you'd like coffee to automatically begin brewing (for example 7:15 a.m.). Press
the HOUR and MIN buttons to 7:15 a.m. Make sure the PM indicator light is not lit. When
finished, press the AUTO button a second time (hold the button down a few seconds) until
the AUTO light stops flashing and stays on to show the timer is activated.
3. Prepare the coffeemaker for brewing as instructed in "BREWING" but don't turn
on the unit.
4. To check your pre-set auto time, press PROG and it will display. When the clock returns
to the current time of day, press AUTO to reactivate the timer. To automatically brew
coffee again at the same pre-set auto-on time, prepare coffeemaker for brewing again
and press the AUTO button.
Note: The Auto-Brew function can be canceled at any time by pressing the AUTO button a
second time or by pressing the OFF button twice. The AUTO light goes out.
