Leaking tank on new Bunn coffee maker

The maker leaked the first time it was plugged in and filled. I can't find out how or where to contact Bunn for returning it for repair..any ideas? If you can tell me what to check, I'll try to repair it myself. Thanks

Hi, is your unit a new VPR? it could have just a gasket that is not tight, or if you pour too fast it could overflow the fill reservoir. Either way you can go to and serch in either home, or commercial for the 800 number appropriate for you, thank you :)

Hello, The coffee maker has 2 places where it is common to have a leak. Unplug the machine then take the lid off. Next using a coin remove the bolt holding the fill pan to the tank (it's the nut on the inlet to the tank) once this fill pan is out you will see the top of the tank. Here is the first spot it can leak around the tank lid gasket. You will normally see evidence of water leaking. The second place if you look at the top of the tank is the tube running from the tank to the basket, this has a gasket that commonly goes bad. Find which gasket is leaking and replace it. If you are buying your coffee from a local coffee company they will normally repair the machine for you even if you own the machine. if not you can either get the new gaskets by calling Bunn or from a company in California called holiday house. You could also try getting the part from a local coffee company but they will try to send a sales guy out with the part :) Hope this helps! If you have any other questions please feel free to comment. Mike

Bunn coffee maker leaks all over the counter. What

there's probably a 'silicon rubber' hose that feeds hot water to the 'grounds basket'- it may be loose, or damaged. is it leaking water, or coffee?? we have a bunn 8-cup, which has a pre-heated water tank that brews a pot in about 3 min. energy waster, but when you need coffee, you need coffee!!! is your filter holder properly centered? is the carafe lid hole clean and un-obstructed?
if it's leaking water, and not too costly to replace- you may consider replacing it with a new one!
good luck!

Water leaks out from underneath coffee maker

Well they don;t give these away for sure. Lets see if we can help you out. ? are you over filling it.This happened to me because I was reading the fill line wrong. {got new glasses} . If not may be you could try makeing less. But if only 1/2 cup comes out and no more, that wouldent indacate a leak in the tank, if there was it would all leak. Try backing off on the coffie and water, and see if it still leaks. if it does get back to me. DFD

Bunn Coffee maker

your problem is caused by the pour-in tray leaking where it mounts to the tank. There should be 2 screws under the pour-in lid, and a third toward the rear of the brewer. if you take them out & lift up carefully, you can see the pour-in tray. in the bottom of the tray, there is a bolt that mounts the tray to the tank. If you remove that, you can lift the pour-in tray out. Be careful, as these trays get brittle over time, and are prone to cracking.

My Bunn coffee maker is leaking water

Dennis Karlen supplies repair parts for this problem. You can find the various kits on his website

There are other suppliers who sell two silicon washers and a stainless steel washer in kits, but they tend to run considerably more.

The rubber washer would degrade quickly due to the heat. You may be able to get by with a new silicon washer. Check your local (not national chain but local francisee) hardware store.
