Re: The water is not getting hot
You can check to see if the switch on the side of the tank is turned on and is working, but if the problem is with the tank heater itself, you can't get replacement parts for this model unless you can find a broken one at a garage sale or a Bunn service center. You can obtain a list of service centers in your area from www.bunn.com

Is it still under warranty? Bunn should take care of it for you if it is. Usually if the coffee is only warm it may mean that a thermal limit has tripped. The water stays warm because the tank has a heater blanket that is wrapped around it but you aren't getting any power to the heater that is in the tank.
Due to UL regulations, warmer plates can't be sent out. However, you warmer plate can be repaired for a minimal charge. Please call customer service with the model and date code and we will be happy to provide you with the cost and address.
You could have scale building up on the heating element and thermostat probe. try running a 1/3 white vinigar - 2/3 water mix into the brewer, let it heat up completely, then run several pots of clear water through the unit. keep pouring water through it until the vinigar smell is out of the water,
here are three possibltys a burned off wire in the heating curcuit .but more likly its the hi temp cut out or the thrmostat itself. a continuity tester can determine with it is . both part are easily replacable
look at the top of the coffee maker you'll see two screws and the warmer tray and the cover for adding water. remove the two screws and lift the top off. the warmer has two push on spade terminals. pull the wires off them. below is a tray where the water goes and you'll see a brass bushing. this is screwed into a fitting on the water tank. use a piece of steel as a spanner and unscrew this fitting. don't lose the gasket that's under it. the main wires for the burner element and thermostat are also under this tray. look at the top. there's nine screws that hold the top on the water tank. two white wires go to the tank warmer and two wires go to the tank heater inside. you can try turning up the thermostat setting to a higher range and see what happens. there's a copper pipe that comes from the tank to the sprayhead the tank holds approx three urn fulls of water. if you have an analog meter you can check the element for continuity on the RX1 range. Do the same with the tank warmer element. Bunn-o-matic has a web site you can buy replacement parts or nelson appliance can get you parts too.
