Coffee coming one side only of spout


There are two ways to overcome this uneven drip of coffee into the cup.
1- Make sure the machine is placed on a level counter top. The coffee drips as a gravity flow. Machine placed on a tilted surface will allow coffee flow more on the tilted side.
2- It appears the coffee faucet outlet has not been cleaned/flushed with any coffee cleaners or descaling solution. Clean the coffee outlet as following:
* Prepare two or four cups of Baking soda solution.Fill the Baking soda in water tank and make few espresso, using the preground cycle.
** Then use two to 4 cups of descaling solution and repeat the process making several espresso.

When I brewed coffee from my Keurig mini k10 brewer, the coffee came out of the center and the side (spilling coffee into the drip pan) but the resevior was not overfilled and the coffee was not finished...


Sometimes things can build up on the inside of the machine, even though you may have only had it for a short period of time. You should try cleaning it to make sure nothing is clogged in the filters.

Very little water is dripping into the carafe


Try to run vinegar undiluted through the coffee maker first. If this does not help, you may have a plugged valve in the coffee maker or a tube/hole where the coffee maker water should drip through. if this coffee maker has a dispenser(where you put your cup against it and the coffee comes out) then there is likely a plugged up valve. This will require dismantling the coffee maker to clean it. Usually coffee makers get plugged up because coffee leaves a residue that requires scrubbing at time to remove.

Hi,when my tassimo finishes filling the cup,it


For a Braun machine, unfortunately this is quite normal as it's part of the "purge" once it has finished brewing.

The new Bosch machines do not do this and finish their cycle with a steam purge instead.

BUNN VPR commercial coffee pot, not flowing in a steady stream just dripping


Your spray head has 5 to 6 little holes depending on the model and year, and it looks like you have scale, calcium or lime blocking them.
Since your model is a VPR pour model, you will have less trouble cleaning it with white vinegar than the permanent water connection type. I use a gallon of vinegar and filters for this.

Parts needed:
2 Clean, Rinsed Empty coffee cans
1 Gallon of White vinegar
5 coffee filters
1 Toothbrush, preferrably angled head

Start with your Bunn turned off and place an empty full size coffee can under the pour spout. Now place a filter in the brew basket to catch any fine particles you don't want poured back in the resevoir and heater. You will need to change this filter a few times as the trash starts coming out of your spout.

With the coffee can, brew basket, and a fresh empty filter in place you want to start pouring the vinegar in the tank while catching the water with the coffee can. As it fills with water you will need to dump the can down the drain until the full gallon of vinegar has been poured in the Bunn. Allow the excess water to finish flowing out into the coffee can making sure to leave half the water in the can to pour back into the coffee maker.

By now your tank should be filled with mostly white vinegar, and your coffee can should be at least half full of vinegar as well.
Now you can turn on the lower pot warmer to keep the solution hot and plug your Bunn into the outlet.

Allow 8 to 10 minutes for the heater to heat up and pour the half full coffee can of vinegar into the fill area. Allow the cycle to complete and replace the filter as needed, or if flow begins to slow down.
If your heads are clogged, use the toothbrush to clear the holes as the vinegar is flowing until you see all holes flowing vinegar.

Chunks of trash will dislodge in your heater tank and flow to your spray head, so keep that toothbrush ready.

Do this at least 5 times, then allow the Coffee maker to sit 30 minutes with the heater on to finish dissolving the lime and calcium deposits in the tank.

After 30 minutes start flushing the system with clean water to rinse out all of the vinegar, or until you can no longer smell vinegar in the coffee can.

Good Luck!

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.

Water is still dripping after brew cycle is finished


If it is a plumbed in model then the inlet solenoid needs to be replaced. If it is a pourover model then check the temp the water in the tank might be boiling.

Where to fine a owners manual


I own a Maxim Expres machine. I no longer use it nor have the manual, but the following are my recollections.
I have the version with an on/off switch on the front and a separate knob to control the steam nozzle.

- Use the carafe to measure the water, then pour into the tank and replace the screw-on lid.
- Measure coffee into the metal basket (don't remember the proportions of coffee to water - you
have to experiment.)
- I tamped the coffee lightly - not as much pressure as you use with a pump-driven machine.
- Put the basket into the handle, line up the slots and twist the handle to the side to secure (I'm
sure the models vary in this regard). Place the carafe under the drip hole.
- Push the button to "on". For espresso, just wait until it stops dripping. This is a steam-driven
machine - don't expect much or any crema.
- Frothing: If you are going to froth milk, you need to do it WHILE THE COFFEE IS DRIPPING.
-Wait until coffee starts dripping into the carafe (otherwise there is not enough steam pressure)
-Submerge the nozzle tip under the surface of the milk and turn the knob on the steam nozzle.
-After frothing, turn the nozzle to closed and wait for coffee to finish.
-If you wait too long to start frothing, the coffee will finish and you will lose steam pressure.

That's what I remember, hope it helps.

The Bunn coffee machine has an internal tank used for holding approx three potfulls of water at just below brewing temperature. When you add water for a potful, the thermostat senses cold water and starts the brew heater. The water level inside the tank comes up and goes through the sprayhead. This "surge" of water, that you call drips is normal. The hot water stratifies to the top of the tank, just like an electric water tank in a house. The internal pot heater kicks in and boils the water already in the tank, raising the water level in the siphon pipe to the sprayhead until the reservoir under the add water opening is empty.
