The starting point for filter should be mentioned in the manual. But if its not around and nobody in the world knows the setting:

Start with 14-15g coffee at a slightly finer than sand setting, (somewhere between course sand and table salt)
94-96 degrees Celsius water
100-150ppm TDS water (preferably) try bottled natural spring water (not evian)
Pre-heat pre-wet
grind, put coffee in, settle flat, poke a half inch hole in the coffee in the center
Pour 30mL water
Wait 30 seconds
Pour slowly in a circular movement making sure not to touch the paper with the stream of water
Never stop pouring until the end
Pour and reach the following times and weights:

110mL @ 1 min
200 mL @ 1:30 min
Stop pouring at 250mL @ 1:45
The water should stop flowing at 2:05 min (approx)

Never stop pouring throught the process

mL are total mL, not added mL

If the water continues past 2:15 min, the grind is too fine or the dose is too high
If the water falls too quickly, less than 2:00 min, the grind is too course.

Of course there are other variables, freshness, temperature & pre-heating too little are the most common causes of extraction problems.

This is meant as a starting point and not an absolute, adjust dose, time and temperature to taste.
