Bunn Dual only heating to 180-185F

Is there scale buildup on the heating element? Can you check the voltage of heating elements. They should read in the 208v range. If all checks out then I would change out the thermostat.

Hi Bill
What happens when you do a tea ? (hot water only, NOT the steam button) do you also get little water ?
The fact that you are getting steam is good as there are 2 heating systems in the unit.
Have you ran the descaling recently (if you do not use filter ) ?
If you have or use a filter the problem is likely to be at the rear of the machine, however the back contents all the power and you will need to be happy to do some stripping down of the machine,
In the back you have the pump, valves, heater etc.
I am just about to draw up a flow chart of the water system inside the machine and have it published online (couple of days).
Are you happy to strip machine down ?

I have an Jura E85 that is taking a long time to produce coffee. It comes out in a small trickle... I think it's producing the right amount, just taking a long, long time doing it... Also when trying to...

The sieve in the brewing unit is clogged. There`s no options; You have to take the brew unit appart, clean everything including behind the sieve, change the 2 o-rings and put it all together. This is rather complicated if you`ve never done it before, so i recommend you take the machine to a servicedealer for this operation.

However, try to use your finger and clean out all the grounds from the brewing unit. Just take out the tray, put your finger up between the 2 flaps inside the brewing unit, you will now feel the sieve that`s causing all the trouble. You could be lucky that the sieve is clogged only on the outside. Good luck!

Espresso machine loses steam than recovers in minutes

It sounds like a heating element issue. Those elements look like a single unit but are actually made up of 2 or 3 independent heating coils - one may not be working. So, you're only getting 1/2 to 2/3 heating capacity, which isn't noticeable until the machine is under heavy steam load.

Coffee is coming out weak. Feels hot. could this be a thermomitor problem

To check the water temperature you need to run a pot with the sprayhead removed. Most Bunnomatics have two forms of heating. The primary heat source is the heater element. It's job is to heat water to the temperature set by Bunn factory technicians. The second heat source is what is called a "keep warm heater". This heater is always on and keeps the water temperature at about 180 degrees. This saves on long heating times while the coffee brewer isn't being used. Now, if the main heating element goes out the brewer is still gonna send about 180 water to the brewbasket. By the time is gets from the air gap in the brewbasket to the grounds and filter it looses about 10 degrees. Coffee (regardless of what that non expert said that burned herself when she put the coffee between her legs says) is brewed at between 190 to 205 degrees for a good cup of coffee. With lawsuits I think alot of restaurants have taken the brew temp down to about 193. So your coffee maybe hot but if it is only using the blanket heater it won't be hot enough to make a good cup of coffee. So check the temperature by using a good electronic thermometer purchased at most hardware stores. If the temp is good start looking elsewhere. The first place is after you brew a pot of coffee do you have a "star" pattern in the used grounds, you should. If not remove the filter basket and run a pot of water into the pot. You may have to get a pan that will fit under it to catch the water if it doesn't drop into the brewer's decanter. You don't wanna make a watery mess. It is imperative that all the holes in the sprayhead are clear of grounds and water is running, not dribbling from them. A clean brewbasket and sprayhead are everything to taste. Also the temp must be above 190deg and It shouldn't take more than three minutes from the time you finish pouring the water in the top until you basically have a full pot (not counting some small dripping at the end).

Vienna Deluxe Coffee Machine - Water doesnt heat up

indeed the heat sensor can be busted. Not a difficlult fix but time consuming as you need to get the whole machine appart.
Go to the saeco site and look in their parts list of your machine. It tels you the part number for the sensor. and you can order it anywhere.
Your boiler can be damaged too.
Kind regards eric

I haven't been able to find the base heating element for sale anymore. Best I can suggest is finding one on ebay that still has a working base heater but the water heater no longer works.
