Question about Bunn NHB Coffee Maker

1 Answer

The water is not heated when I put my Bunn coffee maker on

My Bunn coffee marker was stored for about 1 year. I put some water in it and plug it. My model is NHB. I waited 15 minutes but the water didn't heat up and I hear no sound coming from the tank. What do you think is the problem? The element? I plugged it too fast and I burned the element? Can you help me? Can it be repaired?

If you plugged it in before water started coming out of the sprayhead (about 2 pots full of water poured in) you might have burnt out your element, But lets start with a simpler answer. Did you check the main burner switch on the side of the tank?
If so, then I would suspect your main heating element

Bunn coffee maker heats but wont pump water?


I thought these are pour over brewers? Which means you have to fill it with water in order to brew? It should happen when the unit is filled first, plugged in then turned on.(see link below for MFR instructions) Aloha! ukeboy57

I don't understand the question, but here is a try.

2 - put in third pot, the water should start coming out
Allow the water to heat (thirty minutes) then put coffee in filter housing, put in one pot of water, put empty pot on warmer, close lid, wait for brew cycle, enjoy coffee.

My Bunn Coffee maker is leaking water from the bottom.


I had the same problem. On mine (and probably yours) the problem was the seal between the (upper) plastic water reservoir and the lower (metal) heating reservoir. No replacement seal is available.

I fixed mine by coating both sides of the old seal with aquarium grade clear silicone sealer - available at pet supply stores. Just a light (1/16") coating is all that's required. Carefully re-assemble and allow the sealer to cure for 24 hours.

I did that over a year ago, and it hasn't leaked a drop ever since.

How to fix a bunn coffee maker that trips a gfi


Every time I plug in my bunn coffee maker, it trips the GFI. But when I plug it into another plug in my kitchen, it will work, but it seems like the water reserve is not right. It blows too much steam and the top starts lifting up from the pressure of the steam, then it starts leaking out the top left side. Then if I pour enough water to make 10 cups, it only makes 6 or 8. The coffee maker is only 3 years old, what should I do?

My NHB Bunn coffee maker no longer heats the water to a high enough temperature to make good coffee, it used to . Is there a replacement termostat for this or ??????


While there is no thermostat to replace, if you will contact Customer Service with the model and code date located on the bottom of the machine, we will either replace your machine with a new one at no cost if under 3 years old. If it is over 3 years old, we will replace it at a reduced price.

Have a Bunn NHB. I cannot get more than 4 cups of


I work for BUNN. Has your issue been resolved? The rocker arm is inside the pour in bowl (where you pour in the water for brewing). To get to it you have to take off the entire top lid (not just the spin lid above the pouring area). That can be removed by lifting it up and then you simply snap it back on when you are finished. Hope this helps.

I have a Bunn coffee maker (Model NHB code date154704) that trips the ground fault breaker the second you plug it in. It worked fine yesterday, but last night my wife put half water and half vinegar in it...


The water doesn't come into direct contact with the heating element. The only way to know the cause of the problem is to use a multimeter and test the circuitry.

Doesn't drip through. Don't know where the coffee water went to?


When setting up a new machine, it requires 2 full decanters of water to be poured into the machine. After you have done this, then you plug the machine in and turn on the vacation switch on the side of the machine. After 15 min, then you will pour in 4-10 cups of water and it will force out the hot water from the tank in the back and brew the coffee. If this doesn't correct the problem, then please call customer service with the model and date code.

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.
