    M2000 Century - Manual

    For help with Installation or Operation of your Dishmaster Faucet go to dishmasterfaucet.com, call toll-free 800-521-9234 or email sales@dishmasterfaucet.com. Our website has the most current information about Accessories, Parts, Frequently Asked Questions, Operation, Maintenance and Troubleshooting.

    Things To Know

    The M2000 is designed for sink or countertop installation and fits all standard 3 and 4 hole sinks. Maximum sink/countertop thickness is .63” or 2.3” with optional extension kit. Please refer to specification sheet.
    We strongly recommend that you have hot and cold shut-off valves located under the sink and we believe flexible supply lines are the most convenient way to connect your water supply for a sink/countertop installation.
    Your Dishmaster is designed to use liquid detergents. Do not attempt to use soaps or soap powders. We recommend Dishmaster® Liquid Detergent Concentrate. Other name brand liquid detergents may work in your Dishmaster. Do not use detergents with lotion additives. Avoid detergents that appear cloudy rather than clear.
    Every faucet’s longevity is subject to the condition of the water that flows through it. A Dishmaster is no exception. Water quality causes the most variation in the performance of a Dishmaster Faucet and water conditions vary greatly throughout the country. In addition, the unique design of your Dishmaster that allows it to dispense suds at the touch of a button means it has more components than the typical faucet. We have no control over the condition of your water and therefore do not warranty seals or rubber components. However, with proper care, your Dishmaster will give you many years of reliable service. Please take a few minutes to read through the Operation and Maintenance sections and become familiar with the use and care of your Dishmaster.
    We are continuously improving the design and material content of the parts used in our Dishmaster faucets. After development and testing, we incorporate these improvements into production. Any part improved in this manner is interchangeable with the part(s) it replaces. When new style parts are supplied on a parts order they are interchangeable with the old parts.

    Operation

    Attach the Brush
    • Engage two lugs on the inside of the brush in the brush adapter slots and rotate 1/4 turn clockwise
    Remove the Brush
    • Rotate the brush 1/4 turn counter-clockwise and pull off
    Fill the Detergent Tank
    • Lift the detergent tank, with hose, into the sink
    • Remove the detergent tank lid
    • Fill the tank with warm water
    • Add four tablespoons liquid detergent concentrate to the tank
    • Gently stir to thoroughly mix the detergent into the water
    • Replace the lid
    • Return the tank to its place beneath the sink
    Refill the Detergent Tank
    Before you refill the tank is a perfect time to backflush. Over time, detergent can congeal in the components and deteriorate the performance of your Dishmaster. This is especially likely if your detergent to water ratio is mixed stronger than recommended or if you use a detergent with a lotion additive. Perform the quick backflush routine each time before refilling the tank to keep your Dishmaster in top working condition.
    Use the Wand
    • Turn on the water and adjust the volume and temperature as desired
    • Lift the wand and grip it by the handle
    • Point the brush downward into the sink basin
    • Pull up on the diverter knob at the base of the spout
    • Direct the spray onto the dish and press the red button for suds
    • Sweep the brush bristles over the dish to scrub the dish clean
    • Press the brush into the dish to spread the bristles and engage the built-in scraper
    • Release the red button for clear water rinse
    • Turn off the water
    • Place the wand in the holder

    Maintenance

    Backflush
    The detergent you add to your tank may congeal and separate from the water over time. The congealed detergent may accumulate in the tank, hose, tube and wand. Miscellaneous particles that come through your water lines may also accumulate. Backflush to wash out the obstructions. Caution: this procedure causes water to flow backward. Be sure to follow the steps to confine the water to the sink.
    • Lift the detergent tank, with lid and tube attached, into the sink.
    • Unscrew the tank from the lid and place it in the sink with the two small holes facing downward.
    • Place a sponge or dishcloth in the bottom of the sink.
    • Remove the brush from the end of the wand.
    • Turn on the water and adjust the temperature to warm.
    • Divert the water from the spout to the wand.
    • Press the end of the wand into the sponge or dishcloth to restrict the water flow - you will not be able to completely restrict the flow.
    • Press the red button.
    • Water should flow from both small holes and from the end of the tube where it is attached to the button at the top of the lid.
    • Clean the detergent tank.
    • Refill the tank.
    • reattach the lid.
    • place the assemble detergent tank beneath the sink.
    • Reattach the brush to the wand.
    Your Dishmaster will work best if you routinely perform this procedure. Make it a habit to take a few moments and backflush every time your tank runs empty and before refilling.
    Care and Cleaning
    Use a mild cleanser such as liquid dishwashing detergent to clean your faucet. Always test a cleaning solution in an inconspicuous area before cleaning the entire surface. Do not let the cleanser sit on the surface for any extended period of time. Immediately rinse surfaces with clean water. Use a soft, dampened sponge or cloth, never a scouring pad, brush or other abrasive material.
    Brushes will give many months of service with proper care and use. To clean the brush, flatten the brush on the bottom of the sink to spread the bristles, press the red button and run hot sudsy water through it. If the brush becomes grease coated, use a little grease-removal type cleanser. Replacement brushes are available for a variety of applications.
    Aerator
    If the water stream from the spout is weak or uneven, the aerator may have accumulated particulate (tiny bits and pieces of things that come through your water lines). Follow this procedure to remove the particulate. Plug or cover your sink drain(s) so that no small parts will go down the drain if you drop them. If you must use pliers to remove the aerator, pad the jaws with a cloth to prevent scratching the surfaces.
    • Unscrew the aerator assembly from the end of the spout by turning it counter-clockwise.
    • Be certain to capture the black gasket. It will sometimes stick to the end of the spout rather than come off with the aerator assembly.
    • There is no need to disassemble the aerator components.
    • Turn the aerator assembly upside down and tap it on the countertop until the accumulation of particulate is removed. It may help to rinse the aerator assembly.
    • Use white vinegar or a commercially available product to remove lime or other mineral deposits.
    • Run water through the spout to wash out any particulate that may be in the spout.
    • Place the black gasket into the aerator assembly.
    • Screw the aerator assembly back onto the end of the spout. Hand-tighten only. Do not use pliers.
    Diverter
    The diverter rod is in the center of the spout below the black diverter knob. If the rod becomes dry or sticky it may not automatically drop when the water is turned off.
    • Lift the diverter knob all the way up and hold. Use a soft cloth and a mild cleanser to clean the diverter rod. Do not scratch the surface of the diverter rod.
    • Rinse and dry the rod.
    • Lift the diverter knob all the way up and hold. Apply a small amount of non-toxic plumber’s grease to the diverter rod.
    • Work the diverter rod up and down to coat the diverter rod and push the grease down into the seals located in the spout base.

     

    Valve
    Your Dishmaster Faucet has been tested at the factory to ensure that it works properly. However, due to differing water pressure or conditions in your home, some adjustment may be necessary to keep it working properly. If your faucet develops a leak from beneath the handle or a drip from the spout, please try the following before contacting customer service.
    Remove the red/blue plug on the lower face of the lever handle.
    Loosen the set screw located beneath the plug using the combo tool (or a 1/8” hex key) and pull straight up on the handle to remove the handle from the faucet.
    You should now see the stem of the ball valve that your handle was attached to, a plastic piece with a heart shaped hole in it called a cam, and an adjustment ring. The adjustment ring has four equally spaced notches around the face.
    Us the spanner end of the combo tool (a butter knife or similar can be substituted) to tighten the adjusting ring by putting the tabs of the tool into the notches on the adjusting ring and turning it clockwise. Tighten the ring in only very small increments of 1/4 turn or less. Slip the handle back onto the stem (it is not necessary to tighten the set screw at this time) and turn the water on and off to check that the leaking/dripping has stopped before further tightening the adjusting ring. Repeat as necessary until leaking/dripping has stopped.
    If the adjusting ring is adjusted too tightly, the lever handle will be difficult to move. If the adjusting ring is adjusted too loosely, water will leak past the valve seal and may drip from the spout.
    Once the faucet is adjusted, place the handle back on the stem, tighten the setscrew, and insert the red/blue plug.
