You can always clean a coffeemaker with vinegar, but always pour in cold, so you can do it twice or more, but dont re-use the stuff you just used, wait till it's cold or just use some other.after use clean by let water through 2 or 3 times, (also only cold water)

I think my bunn-o-matic VPR needs cleaning and I do not have a manual for this machine. Can you advise on how to do this?


To clean the vpr you will need to take the lid off the machine. Be sure to unplug while doing this. First clean the water tray. You can unscrew the nut holding this tray and clean the tray in your sink. Put the tray back in and put the lid back on. Plug coffee maker in. Fill one coffee pot with vinegar and pour it in machine. After the water finishes coming out let the coffee maker sit overnight. Before you start filling the maker with water at least 6 times, be sure to clean the spray head. Make sure the 5 or 6 holes are free and clear of any build up. Then start with fresh water. Fill the coffee pot with fresh clean water and pour into machine. Let it finish and do this at least 6 times. If you can still taste or smell the vinegar repeat until you cant.

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!

My tim hortons coffee maker is not brewing as quickly..s there a wayto clean it


Make a 1/2 pot 50/50 mixture of cold water and white vinegar then run it through the machine in normal brewing fashion. Place a clean filter in the brewing cup to catch the white deposits that are removed. Allow the mixture to cool, then repeat the process several times while using the same filter. Finally, run several pots of fresh water through to work out the taste of the vinegar. Repeat whenever the brewing time seems to be excessive.

I mislaid my instruction booklet, how do I clean my 10 cup home coffeemaker? Bunn coffeemaker purchased from Tim Horton's.


With your brewer still turned on and full of water, pour 1 quart of white vinegar into the top and place the decanter on the base and close the lid. Allow the vinegar to stay in there for 2 hours. Then you will need to flush out the machine with 8-10 decanters of water. There is a manual located on the website www.bunn.com. Select @ home then go to products. Select the model and then there is an option to download the manual. Or you can call customer service with the model and code date and a manual can be sent out to you.

No hot water for coffee? model twood12619-1900w.


It sounds like your heating element or it could just be your heating plate.
I found this information that might also help you out. I found it www.fixitclub.com/Small_Appliances/Coffee_Maker.shtml
Basic maintenance can minimize repairs. Periodically brew a batch of water without the grounds, adding a small amount of vinegar to the water to neutralize accumulated acids. In addition, if you live in an area that has hard tap water, only use distilled or filtered water in your coffee maker. Not only will it last longer, the coffee will also taste better

Coffee not tasting good


To make the self-clean light go off, just unplug the coffeemaker for longer than 20 minutes. As far as not tasting right, did you try flushing the vinegar out of the coffeemaker using plain water, or water mixed with 1 tbsp lemon juice per cup? Also, get rid of your current charcoal water filter - after time, it will disintegrate, and your coffee will have a hint of charcoal.

I cleaned my Bunn pour o matic


If the unit works okay, there is no damage. I would suggest using vinegar, or better to use a recommended cleaner from an appliance dealer, rather than something as strong as CLR.

After cleaning the coffeemaker with any type of cleaner make sure it is properly rinsed out!

Lost manual need cleaning instructions


You can download the operating manual for your machine in pdf format right to your computer from www.bunn.com By the way, I wouldn't personally put vinigar in any Bunn machine, as it takes forever to run enough water through them to get rid of the vinigar taste.

My bunn is too slow


Use the de-liming spring to clean the copper tube behind the spray head. Pour several pots of clear white vinegar through the unit to further remove lime and scale from the interior of your coffee maker. My Bunn is 24 years old, and the only replacement parts I've ever required are new carafes and the 4041 silicone washer repair kit.
