Hello. If this is the hot water faucet, on the front of the unit, there is a rubber seat that keeps it sealed. Usually it gets a piece of debris, or scale in it with use, or the rubber seat gets worn out and needs replacement. To check, turn off your water, unplug the unit, and drain all the water out of the faucet until it stops, then tilt the unit forward slightly just to get a little more. Now you should be able to unscrew/disassemble the faucet, and pull it out to look at the seat cup, and the faucet interior. If there is scale or debris on the cup, and the faucet interior, it will need to be cleaned, and it may actually require chemicals for scale, if bad enough. If the rubber seat cup is torn, it will need a new one. You can get a new seat at a parts supplier for commercial units in your local area, look in the phone book under "restaurant equipment repair" or go online, plenty of them have a web site. If it is NOT your faucet dripping, we can go from there.

Hope that helps, and thank you.

My coffe maker leaks water all over the counter and has for a very long time, why? It's only about 3 yrs. old or less, I think and I am tired of it, I have to clean it up everyday and then add more water...


If you haven't used a replacement carafe, then it is probably a clog in the drip orifice, at the bottom of the basket. Note: don't put hot water in your coffee maker as it will perk faster and cause an overflow. Only use cold water. If you have replaced the carafe then it is probably the wrong size.

Coffee starts dripping down before I can get the water all poured in and the pot on the warmer, causing a mess.


This is common with bunn coffee makers, if you are not fast enough, coffee starts dripping. The only solution I found is to use a water pitcher, first fill coffee pot to cup mark you are using, then pour into pitcher, put pot back on machine, then pour in water. You can mark a line on picture, so you know where to fill to each time.

Doesn't drip through. Don't know where the coffee water went to?


When setting up a new machine, it requires 2 full decanters of water to be poured into the machine. After you have done this, then you plug the machine in and turn on the vacation switch on the side of the machine. After 15 min, then you will pour in 4-10 cups of water and it will force out the hot water from the tank in the back and brew the coffee. If this doesn't correct the problem, then please call customer service with the model and date code.

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.
