Coffee not hot enough

I have a Bunn coffee maker. The hot plate does not keep the coffee as warm as the coffee is right after it brews a new pot. I suspect the thermostat is loose or malfunctioning. Is there a test procedure or an adjustment I can make to warm it up? Is there a parts supplier out there from whom I can get a new thermistor?

    I contacted Bunn. My coffee maker is out of warranty, so no repair was offered. Though they did not offer any repair parts either, they did offer to take my coffee maker as a trade on a new model, with a 33% discount on a new home coffee maker.

I just purchased a new a10 bunn coffee maker and it just doesn't brew a hot pot of coffee. It is warm enough to drink without cooling it like my old bunns and the cup of coffee is almost cold before you...


Plug in brewer and turn on vacation switch on side

of brewer. Allow 15 minutes for water to heat to proper

temperature. This is a quote from bunns troubleshooting page. Also it should be under warranty in which case you could go to www.bunn.com and call their service line and either have them send a tech to look at it or have you send it off for warranty repair. Hope this helps.

I have a bunn coffee maker that when it brews the first pot is hot after that the next one is not. It is the coffee maker that has two warmers on top. i didnt know if would be the heating element or...


While this brewer does have a reservoir that keeps a couple of pots worth of water hot for brewing you can get a cooler second pot if you brew directly after. You should hear the brewer heating up after brewing. Try waiting until it is back to temperature before re-brewing. If that heating takes more than a few (3-4) minutes then you probably have a problem with the heating element and the water is only being heated by the "keep warm" heater.

When i make coffee sometimes the water that comes out is cold or luke warm


The brewer has not had enough time to reach its operating temp (usually 7 mins after a brew cycle). If that is not hte case then the machine needs to be descaled.

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.

Bunn coffee maker


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.

Warming plate boils coffee.


Make sure you are using the type of commercial coffee pot like the one in the picture. They don't have to have to be plastic with the metal bottom, they can be all glass. The commercial pots are heavy duty and usually disperse the heat well.

If you are using commercial pots the only solution without replacing the warmers is to put three pennies on the warmer and to put the pot on top of them. The pennies will get hot so don't forget and grab them but the pennies help to move the pot just a little way away from the direct heat.

Warming tray too hot


You can either replace the warming element with a new one, or some people put 3 or 4 pennies on the top of the warmer tray. Don't laugh- this really does work!
