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 www.bunnomatic.com and serch in either home, or commercial for the 800 number appropriate for you, thank you :)

Bunn pour omatic commercial coffee maker will not brew and it leaks


VPR is a pour over "Volume Displacement" brewer. Required to completely fill the inner tank and heat prior to using brewer. BEFORE plugging in unit, water must be poured into upper tray and with brew funnel and empty pot in place. Keep pouring water into top fill tray until water drips out of brew funnel. Plug in VPR and allow it 15-20 mins to heat up. leave the pot as there may be additional water dripping. Remove power if there is any water spilling out from other places like the top pan cover or bottom of machine. With the initial heating done, take a full pot of water and slowly pour into the top filling tray. HOT steaming water should come out of the brew funnel to fill the (empty) pot. Prep is done and the machine can be used to brew a pot after 10-15mins of reheat time.
*** the machine you have needs to be checked for leaks in areas mentioned above. Water should only come out of brew funnel (if not present then the brew head or if that is missing then the brew pipe. All will need to be replaced prior to brewing.) Leaking under machine is an indication of leak(s) in pour tray,tank,tank cover, gasket, probe gasket. This machine like any used equipment should be checked out by qualified tech prior to use. Be aware that coffee vendors sometimes rent or loan brewers to customers.

Leaks


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

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

http://www.jneuhaus.com/appliance/karlen.html

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.
