Churchs bunn. Vps 04275-0013 started heating water till steam comes out fill hole. Causing water to drip everywhere....thinking a thermostate is not opening causing steam


Over Boiling or constant heating of tank water is an indication of a shorted thermostat (or out of calibration). Call your vendor for service. (especially if this equipment is on loan.)
*** the following is for information only. Repairs should be performed by a qualified Bunn Tech. ***
* VPR's and similar machines REQUIRE a pre-fill and heating period prior to brewing. This means it's sitting on a level table and filled with water until water sprays from the brew head. At this point the unit is plugged in and the heater is turned on (there may be some water discharge from brew head as the water expands). Ready light will come on in about 15 mins.
* To Brew; Place coffee grounds in filter, place in funnel and brew head, clean empty decanter under funnel, slowly pour one full decanter of water (cold or hot) into brew tray. Do not overflow tray. Allow water level to sink before adding more water. Only fill with one pot as an equal amount will come out the brew head and funnel.
* Make sure the decanters are all the same size. do not mix a 12 cup pot with a 10 cup pot. One will over fill and the other will under fill. Make sure they match (in cup volume) FYI; Thermo Air pump pots are usually bigger than one pot. Typical filling only to 3/4th of the container. (I think most are in 2.5 to 3 liter sizes)
* If your not getting a full pot then the brewer was partially empty. The second brew (if done within the next hour) should come out full.
* If your still not getting a full pot then the water is leaking or is boiling off. Does it always steam from the top? Thermostat is shorted. Unplug the brewer and call vendor for service.
* Final; Follow the Bunn set up and care instructions (manuals from Bunn.com for down loading. *FREE*)
Aloha, ukeboy57

PS; There is a slight chance that your thermostat is set too high. There is a dial on the thermostat that can be turned counter clockwise to lower the temperature of the brewing water. Water should be about 190-205 F for coffee. Tea drinkers want 210 F which is too close to boiling point of water. If your in the mountains (+2000 feet) then the boiling temp will lower. Was it possible the brewer came from a low (sea level) location and moved to higher altitude? Then the setting is off and must be set lower (a fine adjustment). But note that if your on the top of a high mountain (like Haleakala, Hawaii) then it has to be set a lot lower and you will only get luke warm brews at 9,000 feet!. Adjust the knob clockwise to get it to boil. Then back it off counter-clockwise a bit till it stops boiling. Make another brew to check if the reheat comes to a boil but stops after a minute or so. It should not boil on longer than 2-3 mins. Back it off a bit more if it does. Brew again to check. If none of this works then you will need to replace the thermostat. If your at a really HIGH altitude location, then you will need a specially adapted high altitude brewer. Call your coffee vendor for advice.

Our Bunn VRP SERIES MAKES NOISE WHEN WATER IN THE TANK SITS AWILE


There are two heaters in a VRP unit (Pour over style) The brewer has a tank that your last office person poured in a full pot of water. The main heater senses the colder water and begins to reheat the water to near boiling. The new water pushes out the same amount of water into the brewing basket (funnel with coffee). Once the new water has come up to temperature then the main heater turns off. There is a warming blanket around the inside tank. This keeps the water hot and ready to brew. It uses less power than the main heater. If this blanket fails then the water will cool down to a point where the main heater heats everything back up. You may not notice this as the only indication is luke warm coffee on a freshly made pot or a 'boiling' noise every 15 - 25 mins. This VRP probably needs servicing (check Thermal blanket and Thermal fuse)

The iron is still working but the water not hot


There is most likely a build-up of minerals around the steam holes. Minerals are in ordinary tap water. The coat the heating surfaces, act like an insulator and prevent iron from getting hot. Clean the hot plate with a fine needle or other fine object and then put in a mixture of vinegar and water and let it steam out. To prevent future mineral build-up, use half distilled water and half tap water. If you can't get distilled water, use ordinary drinking water you can buy from your supermarket (it also cheaper). Don't use 'all' distilled water as it boils (steams) at higher temperature and could ruin your iron. Good luck.

My rowenta steamer is not producing steam but tubing getting hot when I turn on steamer. Suggestions?


see this causes and fix it. God bless you

If the iron heats but steams improperly, inspect the soleplate and clean the vents (see below) and flush sediment out of the steam chamber .

If the iron produces too much or too little heat, test the electrical cord . Also test and, if needed, adjust calibration of the thermostat .

If the iron does not spray properly, inspect and clean the nozzle.

If the iron leaks or spits, clean the steam vents, nozzle, and tank.

If the iron sticks to fabric, clean or repair the soleplate. If the iron stains fabric, clean the soleplate, clean the tank with a commercial cleaner, and use distilled or filtered water.

Bunn vpr steams everything out fill hole and nothing comes through copper tube, even after cleaning tube and head.


Fill water tank until water comes out from sprayhead, THEN plug it in it should be OK.

IF the machine keeps blowing steam/keeps boiling the water, The thermostat is defective and must be replaced.

NOTE: If you don't use the machine for a couple days, UNPLUG IT. The water will evaporate if you don't unplug it.

Hello, yes you are correct, it's due to the water boiling in the tank. take 2 screws out of the top panel, just under this panel you will find the thermostat (it's ajustable) turn the temp down on the thermostat, if this does not solve the problem your thermostat may be bad and you will have to replace it. You can purchase new parts from either bunn direct or from holiday house in california. if you have any additional questions please feel free to comment again. Good Luck! Mike

Getting extremely hot


It sounds like the thermostat is not working properly. Please get the model and date code located on the bottom of the machine. Then contact customer service with this information. If your brewer is 3 years old or less, it will be replaced at no cost. If it is over 3 years old, then it will be replaced at a reduced cost.

Bunn coffee maker reservoir makes a gurgling noise


THis sound is usually caused by the water being low in the tank. This can be because the machine is left on for long periods without being used. If this is not the case, then it would probably be your heating element getting small holes in it.

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.
