Most likely this is your heating element, but it could also be your main thermostat

How do you get a bunn pour omatic coffe maker to pour water into the hopper. I put water where it's supose to go it heats up but no water come out. Is there something I'm not doing. Its an older one.


did you pour in another pot of water? It heats up the reserve tank so you always have hot water instantly, but to get that water you need to pour in another pot of water to replace it.

Will not percolate. Water is poured, it heats up, no coffee brew


Bunn Home brewers don't perculate. They work the same way that commercial brewers do. Fillit with water, let it heat for about 20 minutes, then put your filter and coffee grounds in the funnel, pour a pot of water into the machine, put the pot on the warmer, and let the water run through. Then enjoy a nice hot cup of coffee.

I have had my Bunn since 1999 and I have had no trouble whatsoever until today, it decided to become a steam roller and will not shut off at the reserve hot water well. I have to power off the switch each...


It is most likely time to decalcify the machine. If you haven't made a regular practice of this, a cocoon of mineral deposits has encased the heating element causing it to struggle to warm the water adequately even as it overheats itself. If one or more decalcifications using white vinegar and the instructions in your owner's guide fail to improve the situation, the thermostat may be faulty. Contact BUNN for toll-free support:

Our Bunn A10 Coffe Maker has no brew timer on the left side. How can we adjust the coffe maker so that we can get a full pot?


Hello. I need to know if you have an automatic unit, or a pourover. The pourover will not have a timer at all. The difference is you have to pour the water in to get coffee out, an automatic would be connected to a water line, and you just push a start button. If it is an automatic unit, there has to be a timer somewhere to adjust the amount. Here is a web address that has your manual, and a parts breakdown should you need to find where the timer is located.

Hope that helped, and thank you.

Coffe first pot is hot after that they are cold


This can be caused by scale build-up on the thermostat probe that hangs inside the tank. The scale stays hot for a long time, tricking the thermostat into believing that the water is still hot. Try pouring 1 Qt white vinigar into the unit, let it warm up completely, run a pot of clear water thhrough the machine, then turn the unit upside down over a sink (making sure it's unplugged first, and always keeping the fill hole down at all times) to let it drain out all the way. Then before you plug it back in, pour water through the machine until water comes out the sprayhead. Then plug it in, let it heat up, pour 2 pots of water through the machine & see if it heats up properly. If this doesn't cure your problem, your unit may need to be completely dismantled to de-scale the tank & thermostat probe.

Bunn Coffee maker leaks


I called Bunn and they were not helpful at all! I wound up putting silicone (it is not hot enough here to matter) on it, and after it cured, it was great! We have been using it at the Office for almost a year with no problems. I just made sure I did not get any on the part that acts as the "valve."

Warming plate boils coffee.


Make sure you are using the type of commercial coffee pot like the one in the picture. They don't have to have to be plastic with the metal bottom, they can be all glass. The commercial pots are heavy duty and usually disperse the heat well.

If you are using commercial pots the only solution without replacing the warmers is to put three pennies on the warmer and to put the pot on top of them. The pennies will get hot so don't forget and grab them but the pennies help to move the pot just a little way away from the direct heat.
