Bunn BT 10B -RANCID BUTTER in Resevoir!

I posted before but I can't find my post!

Anyway, here goes again!
I placed a frozen package of butter on top of the coffee maker, just for a minute, then forgot about it overnight. The next day, the butter was half gone, melted, and had drained into the top of the maker through the vents.

Before I could clean out the top area, the coffee maker got used, causing the melted butter to drain down into the resevoir. Since then, it is unusable, due to the 'rancid butter' flavoring in the water! I spent hours taking apart the top of the coffee maker and cleaning out that part, then flushing the resevoir out with CLR and other coffee maker cleaners. The horrible smell and taste remains.

I believe that my only hope is to remove the resevoir and clean that out. However, there are lots of wires across the top and one going down along the side.
Can anyone walk me through the process of removing the resevoir, so that I can clean out the butter and make some coffee again?

Thanks, Tina

Hi Tina - I'm no expert on melted butter in your coffee maker; but, I'd bet that the butter also got into the internal water tank where the water gets heated. Try going to the Bunn website: www.bunn.com , and click on their Customer Service link. You can either call their toll-free number or write to them with your problem from there.

Hope this helps!

I need room temp butter and mine is frozen. How can I thaw, but not melt the butter?


cut off the amount of butter that you want( cutting corners off is best) and allow those sections to stand on the bench
to get those sections to thaw quicker , cut them into smaller pieces as the less mass to stay cold the quicker it thaws out

Don't have a manual need to know how to operate Do I add oil or butter in bottom with the corn if so how much?


the ratio for popping corn with oil is three parts corn to one part oil . So a 6 oz kettle you would use 6 oz of corn seed to 2 oz of oil. Don't use butter to pop, it will burn.

Suction does not work


I had the same issue. What I discovered is that when the pump removes the butter it creates a vacume inside the butter vessel. the pump has a hard time overcomming the created vacume. I have drilled an 1/8" hole in the top to allow air to replace the removed butter.

I bought a Presto Popcorn Now continuous popper at a garage sale. There were no instructions and the seller never learned how to use it, having recieved it as a "hand-down". I want to know how...


WAIT! Do not add any oil or butter. I don't know what kind of machine you have, but only POPCORN goes inside the Popcornnow. I have an old one that melts butter on the top cover, although I don't recommend that. I recommend butter in the microwave. Repeat: DO NOT ADD OIL where the popcorn goes or you will set a fire.

I had a stick of butter laying on top of my bunn coffee pot and some butter leaked through the vents. the coffee tasted terrible so i cleaned it with vinegar and ran about 10 pots of clear water through...


Believe it or not I had a customer once that left 6 pounds of butter on top of one of our brewers. They had it cleaned up on the outside so it took me a while to figure out what had happened but I could taste the rancid oils.
We ran about 20 pots of just water through it... make sure you let it heat back up before each one. I think the only thing vinegar might help with would be lime/calcium build up so I wouldn't think it helps this particular situation.
Good luck!

Butter melted into top and down in to water container


mcdevito75 here, Try to clean your coffee maker by running a decanter full of white vinegar thru the system 2--3 times, then fesh water to rinse out the vinegar. Use a new or clean filter at the beginning of the vinegar treatment and after when you rinse with regular water.

No instructions but wanting to know where do you put in the butter for the back to basic stove top popper


The manual says, place butter in cup, hook cup onto the rim of the pan below the "butter cup"marking on the lid, and the butter will melt and drip evenly onto the popcorn as it pops. I haven't tried it; hope it works for you.

RANCID BUTTER melted in Bunn Thermofresh resevoir vents!


There is one thing you can try first. With the machine filled with water and turned on, pour in 1 quart of white vinegar and let it sit in there for 2 hours. Then flush it back out with 8-10 carafes of water. If this doesn't correct the problem, then call customer service with the model and code date. This can be replaced under the warranty if it is under 3 years old or less. If it is over 3 years old, it can be replaced at a reduced price.

Bt 10b coffee maker


You can send me your thermostat or I will send you my reservoir. There is no sense in throwing out 2 otherwise good coffee makers and Bunn will NOT supply replacement parts.
