Am I supposed to keep the button on the lower left side of my Bunn coffee maker in the ''on'' position all the time? If I don't, the coffee is weak and barely warm.

Yes that is the vacation switch and should be left on to allow the tank heater to keep the water at the right temperature for brewing coffee. It only needs to be turned off when you will be gone away for 4 or more days. If you do turn it off, it takes 15 min to heat the water back up to the correct temperature.

My bunn vpr coffee maker is overflowing


Hello Kevin, My Name Is Mike,
Make sure you are using Bunn Vpr brand cupcake filters, not theshorter-sided generic variety. Also, inquire with Bunn Vpr about an optionalattachment for some models that will slow down the rate of water flow. Lastly,ensure that you are not over-filling the basket with grinds. There is an upperlimit to how much a coffeemaker will hold, and some people try to compensatefor weak coffee by adding too much. A lot of times, people now a days, also go to local coffee shop and have them grind there coffee fresh, and the coffee shop a lot of times will grind it to fine. And that would cause it to get clogged and overflow. Thanks So, much and hope this help. Also, If you ever want my help in the future, you can search for me as I have Market place ads I have created in all kinds of different appliance, automotive, electronic Categories. Thanks Mike

I have a commerical Bunn coffee maker. I ran vinegar to clean it out. It dripped very slow. Now, I get a 6 minute pot, the coffee is 180 degrees, but the coffee is very weak! What is up?


Coffee maker is not pre-heating the water.The brew cycle should take about two minutes, and the coffee should be 200°F when it comes out, that is why it's weak. To clarify, is it a commercial model, or a home model (like the one pictured)? Home models will have a 'vacation switch' on the side of the unit that needs to be on to get the water pre-heated properly.

Vacation Switch


The vacation switch should be in the "I" position and the "O" should be in the up position and you will see orange around the switch. If this does not correct the issue, then please call 800-352-2866 for further assistance.

I work for BUNN. It sounds like your sprayhead is missing because it should definitely be spraying versus flowing. We will send you out a free sprayhead - please call our customer service department at 1800 - 352-2866 with your model and will send it right out to you.

I haveBX-B . I had the pot set up for me to push the on button for Monday Morning, but the water ran throug and it was not on.So now I have cold coffee in the Decanter.


The Bunn coffee maker does not operate as most coffee makes do. You cannot leave the Bunn in the off position and then just flip the switch to on and pour the water in. You will always get cold coffee if you do this. It takes time for it to heat the water. The On/Off switch should be left in the On position all the time. This keeps the water hot in the tank, thus providing hot water when you need to make coffee. You then just pour the cold water in the top, shut the lid, and have a pot of coffee in 3 minutes. The On/Off switch is a vacation switch, and you use it only when you are not going to use the coffee maker for a couple of days. Older Bunn coffee makers did not even have an On/Off button. You simply unplugged them when going on vacation. So turn the switch to the On position and leave it there. The unit will then work as designed. Forget how other coffee makers work, this is a Bunn and it is the fastest coffee maker you can buy and must be left on all the time. that way the water stays hot and the unit will keep it that way.

WEAK COFFEE & NOT HOT ENOUGH


Basing on personal experience (you can find more on Google probably), solutions are:

On percolated (filter) coffee machines:

Check water temp, if water temp is insufficient , most common is scale heating element , faulty element, faulty thermostat.
Check if water is dripping right at the center of the filter, if it is dripping on one side because the orifice is clogged, that can result in weak coffee.
Coffee blend not well distributed on filter basket.

On Espresso machines:

Check water temp, same as filter coffee machines (thermostat element, scale on heating chamber).
Ensure that coffee is filled correctly in the filter cup (fill at level), and well pressed.
Ensure that the coffee mixture that you are using is not too coarse, buy the apposite one for espresso.
Ensure that you are not leaving the machine brewing for a time that is too long, and Italian coffee cup is very small, approximately one regular shot.

On the hob moka pots (espresso, Moka and Bialetti type):

This are the trickiest ones, you need art and practice to get a good espresso with a Moka, but when you learn, the result is better than what you may get with an home electrical espresso maker.
The frame on the hob must be not too strong, and the mixture coarse but well pressed, with water at level tag, or you will get a weak coffee.
On Mokas a good strategy is keeping hob at minimum, and turning up the flame at top when coffee starts coming out.

French and turkish cafetieres:

Ensure that you put enough coffee, water hot enough, and that you left the infusion enough time to get a strong coffee.

Note: insufficient pressure and clogged lines on electric machines never give you a weak coffee, exactly the opposite.
Not pressed mixture always gives weak coffee, but too much pressed mixture may give you coffee with bad taste.

Bunn Automatic Coffee Maker


make sure that the machine is turned on on the left side in the back.  this machine needs an hour or so to warm up the reservoir of water built in to the machine.  try again.  this machine should stay on all the time.
