Question about Bunn -O-Matic Corp. 2 Warmer Auto Brewer Black

1 Answer

BUNN CWTF 15

Our coffe is luke warm right after brewing. It only gets hot after sitting on the warmers for awhile. Would this be a thermostat problem or a tank heater issue. What parts would I need to fix it? Is this a fix we could do ourselves?

Please advise.

Thanks!

Hello. Most likely the heating element for the tank has failed. This unit has a warmer that has the wattage of a 100w lamp, wrapped in foil on the outside of the tank, and just helps keep the water in the tank more stable at the normal brewing temp, that is why it is warm to start, but then is cool, or cold when you brew. The main heater in the tank, goes in from the top. Could you do this? well, there are 2 other items, a thermostat, and a hi limit that can cause this same problem, if you can test them, they should read zero resistance, like a closed switch. The element should read 10 to 20 ohms resistance, depending on the wattage, and voltage. It should be relatively easy to replace, just take your time, get the manual here :

Hope this helps, and thank you.

I have a bunn cwtf twin,I put new ready lights on both side work for about a week and the they wont light up. and the side the the faucet only brews warm coffee. but the other side does find. HELP


The green ready lights do not last that long. We never replace them on units we service. They are cheaply made. Each side of this coffee maker has its own thermostat. Check to make sure the thermostat is on all the way. If it is check the voltage on the warm side. Make sure it is in the 208v area. This warm problem is 85% the thermostat not set right and or needs replacing.

Brew water does not get hot


Check heater switch is on in rear of unit.Could also be a the thermal fuse is bad.You can locate fuse by taking top of brewer off.Fuse is in-line going to one side of element and resembles a resistor.Can use a volt meter to ohm for resistance.

My bunn cwtf 15 wont put out hot water and the ready light wont turn off dustain


If your ready light is on and your water is not warm... sounds like the thermostat is too low. Inside the front panel (behind the brew basket) there is a thermostat adjustment on the left-hand side. If you turn that up your ready light should shut off. You can then adjust the temp to your desired level. (194-200 degrees depending on roast, grind, etc...)

When i make coffee sometimes the water that comes out is cold or luke warm


The brewer has not had enough time to reach its operating temp (usually 7 mins after a brew cycle). If that is not hte case then the machine needs to be descaled.

Adjusting the temperature


Our Bunn VPR was delivering luke warm coffee. The problem was lime scale buildup on the heating element. I recommend using a cleaner such as Brew Rite or a vinegar solution. If it still does not heat properly, unplug and remove the heating element for cleaning. This corrected our problem.
