SOURCE: my bunn coffee maker leaks
You need to replace the washer kit inside the top of the maker. Remove the 3 screws that fasten the top and lift it off. You will see the rocker leaver that allows the water to flow into the tank. At the point where the rocker stops the water there is a series of washers that degrade from the heat over time and allows the leak. The washers are very easy to replace. The problem is finding the washer kit. I found it at: www.buyitnow64.com for $3.95 plus shipping (FedEx is only $9.98). I bought 2 (one for backup) kits.The original washers lasted almost 6 years. I had repaired this problem before with a washer from my shop but it broke down rather quickly from the direct heat from the tank. This washer kit is a Bunn washer kit that is supposed to fit all Bunn machines both residential and commercial.
Hope this helps. It took me 2 hours on line to find the washers!

open the cover on the brewer- depending on your model, it could be the front or the back cover. look for a brew timer dial. turn this up slowly, running a brew each time to see if you now have a full pot

It is possible that you have a short in your limit thermostat, but most likely this is caused by small holes in your main heating element. these units start to split length ways down the element, causing a short to ground through the water. These elements are readily available at your local Bunn repair shop.

SOURCE: Bunn coffee maker leaks water
There are 3 seals in your unit that could cause your problem. there is a silicon seal right under the pour-in tray, and two on the top of the tank. one of those is for the thermostat, the other is for the sprayhead tube. any of these could leak, causing water to come out the bottom of the brewer. One other thing that can cause this is a scale buildup between the pour-in tray and the tank.

Hi I have had this problem twice....this time I took off the top of the maker to check it out and noticed something loose and this fixed the problem, on mine at least. Lift the lid and take out the two Phillips screws, and remove the grid. Take out the three (or four) Phillips screws on this level and remove the top of the maker. There is a tube, with a hex nut around it, under the swivel arm that shuts off the water when the lid is up. On my maker this nut was very loose, even though the seals were still good. I tightened it with a pair of pliers( don't over tighten) and it hasn't leaked since. I also cleaned the water tray out while I was at it , as it looked rather yechhy. Reassemble and put the screws back in (don't over tighten, as they are in plastic)
