    My machine is used as well. I put a pot of water in it and

    nothing happened. I will try filling it with 2 pots of water.

    I hope it doesn't run over. I will try this and see what happens.

    I tried the recommendation and all the excess water ran back

    into the pot cold. I am thinking the heater coil is toast, or perhaps

    there is a loose connection to it. If possible, does anyone know of

    a Bunn repair center in Western N.C.? Thanks

It sounds like you have a pour over model and the problem is the tank isn't full. Turn the machine off (or unplug it). Put a pot on the warmer like you are going to brew coffee. Pour clean cold water into the top until it starts coming out the sprayhead (above where the coffee grounds go). Now plug it in and turn on. Let it heat up then you can brew.

The way your machine works is that there is always about 2-1/2 pots of water in the tank. The water you pour in to make coffee is actually pushing the hot water in the tank out. So, if you don't fill the tank before using it, you may be hurting the heating element since it isn't totally submerged in water.

My bunn coffee pot has a crack in it where the resovior is and it leaks water and coffee grounds all over my counter


You will need to replace the cracked section. You should be able to find a local Bunn distributor for the part required. Have your serial number handy.

Coffee is in water is in nothing happens


You may not have enough water in the tank.
Follow these steps

1. With the coffee pot unplugged, fill your resevoir/tank until water begins pouring out of your sprayhead and brew basket.
2. Wait for the water to finish dripping then plug in your Bunn.
3. Let your Bunn warm up for at least 8 minutes.
4. Run a test cycle with clean water, remembering to use the water pitcher provided for this purpose, while leaving your empty pot on the burner beneath the brew basket.
5. If your cycle completed, and your coffee pot is filled to the desired level you are ready to make coffee.

Remember that these Bunn models have no water filter2_bing.gif installed, so, the cleaner the water the better tasting the coffee.

I have a Bunn model VPR, I can fill it up with water, plug it in, no water. turn it on, no water. it gets hot. I opened it up, there is no restriction. What coulf cause this?


This is a pour over unit.

You fill the tank with water, it heats the water in the tank.
When the water in the tank is at brewing temp, the lite should go out.

To brew coffee with this system, you put a filter in the brew funnel, put coffee in the filter. Place the brew funnel in the slide tabs to hold in place. put an empty decanter on the warming plate under the brew funnel. Then take one decanter of fresh water and pour it in the top of the brewer where it says "WATER ONLY" the coffee will begin brewing immediatly.

Water wont come out of my bunn coffee maker


The first pot of water you put in the coffee maker just fills the water tank which is then heated up , once it gets to temperature you then pour second pot of water this pushes the hot water out of the tank through the coffee grounds into the waiting pot. This way you can make coffee faster than a regular coffee maker.

No manual with Bunn NHBX coffee maker.


before plugging in place your empty filter basket in the coffee maker and place a pot under it. Slowly pour in two pots of water using the pour pitcher. Now you can plug it in. it'll take 15 min to heat up first time . when you brew your first pot leave your water level a little short,because the water will expand (only the first time)
