You should keep the unit full of water all the time it's plugged in, as if it is low on water, the heating element will burn out. A Bunn VPS brewer holds about 2 -64 oz pots of water in it's resevoir.

I just get bunn VPS it is and work very good


The switches are for the "warmers" only. The brewer has a reservoir the keeps water hot and ready for brewing. When it is not re-heating water (after brewing) it has a "keep warm" heater that is low voltage and keeps it ready to go.

Water in resovoir boils away. Do I need a thermostat?


Listen to the unit after you make a pot of coffee. You will hear it start heating the water and then after the water heats up you will hear the unit shut down. If it is not shutting down and is continuing to run then yes you need a new thermostat.

Bunn coffee brewer leaking


Is this a lot of water, or just a small amount.

As the unit sits over time and runs heating cycles, it may have some vapor come out of the vents. That will cool and collect around the unit.

try turning the unit off for the weekends. If you still have water around the unit, then it may have a leak in the tank.

How do you drain all the water from the resavoir of a Bunn VPS?


Hello. Take the funnel out, under it is the spray head, remove it, unplug the unit, take it over to a sink and tilt the end that the spray head was on into the sink slowly, the water in the tank will drain out through the spray head pipe until mostly empty. You also could take the top off, take the tank lid off, and use a shop vac to vacuum all the water off, or just pour it out, probably faster, but messier :) If you need information on you unit, go to www.bunnomatic.com , chose commercial, and then on the left, choose coffee, and pour overs.

Hope that helped, and thank you.

Bunn pour omtic 3 burner commerical coffe maker model 666L (pin # 658) Coffee maker will not brew red light comes on and flickers followed th set up insturctions still nothing, even put a pot of vinegar...


I'm going to presume that your brewer is a VPS series pour-over brewer. This problem can be caused by several things, so I'll list the most common ones.
1) The on/off switch for the lower warmer could be burnt out.This switch also operates the heating element.
2) The high limit thermostat quite offen blows on the older VPS brewers. this is a small unit held down to the top of the tank and has 2 wires voming to it.
3) Look for burnt-off wires. These models sometimes burn off wires on the top of the heating element.
4) If none of these work, then your problem will be your heating element itself.
Parts for these models are readily available from your local Bunn repair shop.

Bunn VPS 3


Are you leaving the machine plugged in all of the time? If not, you need to. The machine takes approximately 10 minutes to get to full temperature the first time then the water should stay hot from then on. Or it could be that you just need to turn up the thermostat. No, the water won't get hotter sitting on the burner and the coffee won't taste as good if the water you are brewing with isn't hot enough.

To get to the thermostat, unplug the machine and take the two screws on the top lid off. You should see a box that has a knob or a T sticking out of it. Turn it up a little bit, put the lid back on and let the heat up for a little while (10 - 15 minutes). Try brewing with just plain water. If it still isn't hot enough, repeat the steps above. Make sure you don't turn up the thermostat so much that the water boils.
