Bunn Coffee machine only makes 1/2 pot

We have and older Bunn coffee machine that looks like the VPR. It leaks about A third of a pot of water into the pot overnight. The next day when we pour the water in it only makes about 1/2 of a pot of coffee. Do you have any sugestions on how to fix this problem?

Alfaroo is absolutly right on, The thermostat is either set to high or is malfuntioning The water in the tank is boiling and as it expands it has no place to go but right throw the sprayhead tube and into the brew basket.

What's happening is that it isn't leaking, it's boiling over. You need to turn down the thermostat under the top lid. Also, before you brew coffee, add water to the tank and let it pour into an empty pot. Once it stops brewing, let it heat up for a few minutes then make your pot of coffee.

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.

Just bought the a new Bunn VPR with two heaters for work. Should the unit be unplugged at night? If it is unplugged, how long the next day will it take to brew a pot. Is it safe to leave the unit...


That is one of the best coffee makers ever.It will last for a long time.Yes it is ok to leave it unplugged.Do not ever leave an empty pot on a burner that is on.Once a month,put 1 cup of white vinegar where the water goes,and run the machine.This will clean the inside.After you use the vinegar,run one pot of clean water through the machine.

We need to store a Bunn VPR Series coffee pot. How do I remove the water from the tank?


try hitting 'brew' until all the water evaporates, or look for a 'leak' valve to empty it. usually on the bottom or the side near the tank.

How do I get the BUNN VPR coffee maker to brew a pot of coffee? There are two switches; one for the lower, and one for the upper warmer. Do I first have to fill the tank ALL the way before it brews? Please...


This brewer has a 2 1/2 pot reservoir. You should NOT plug in the brewer before the reservoir has been topped off. Pour 3 pots (one at a time, every minute or so) through the screen with a pot under the filter basket. Wait until the water flows from the basket and only then is it safe to plug in the brewer. The reservoir holds HOT water until you are ready to brew and then, by pouring in a pot of cold water, you will be able to brew.

Bunn VPR Series Coffee Maker will NOT dispense the water into the coffee pot?


This machine has a reservoir that holds about 2.5 pots and keeps them at brewing temperature. Therefore you should pour in 3 pots (with a pot in place under the filter basket) until water flows from the basket. Then, and ONLY then, it is safe to plug in the brewer. If you plug in the brewer BEFORE filling the reservoir you will burn up the heating element and will have to have it replaced.
After the initial filling and heat up (about 20 minutes) you are ready to pour through a pot of COLD water through and brew.

What is the best way to remove lime scale and other mineral build up from a Bunn VPR coffee maker? Water flow has been reduced to a trickle even though we used filtered water.


I always use CLR to clean my coffee maker. You don't need much more than 1/4 cup and mix with 8 cups of water and brew it like you would make a pot of coffee, then dump it out and run 2-3 more pots of just water, that should work fine. Also, run vinegar thru the machine once in awhile to help keep it clean

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.

Help, My comericial coffee machine is making 2 pots


Hello. I do not see a VPR manual with automatic functions, so your unit is not a VPR. Either way, it sounds like you have a scale build up on your level probe, causing the machine to over brew, until it can "see" the water again. This would require taking the top off, locating the probe, unplug please, remove by pulling out, annd cleaning the part that sits in the water. The other thing is you accidentally changed the time setting, here is a link to the manual,
http://www.bunn.com/pdfs/commercial/manuals/10179.0000.pdf

use the instructions to reset the whole time cycle on page 6, setting batch size. Then lock the timer to prevent future mishaps.If this is not your manual, but you have a Bunn unit, go to www.bunnomatic.com, and you can find the manuals to the left side of the screen.

Hope that helps, and thank you.

How to prep to brew good coffee


Hello, that sounds fairly good, as you describe it. Here is a link to your units manual:
http://www.bunnomatic.com/pages/techdocs/manuals/pourbrew_warm.html

go to the bottom of the page, and select the operation manual for a VPR. It is advisable to let the unit sit for approx. 20 minutes after filling, cold water works best, and you need to make sure that you pour the water in before you plug it in, as the heat circuit is always on, whether water is in it or not, including if all the water has evaporated. The manual for the unit should answer your questions.

Hope that helps, and thank you.
