New unit has water boiling over and is leaking around base. I am returning the unit. Had the same problem with an older unit but I got 5 years worth of use out of it. Could not find a fix that worked.

It is normal for a small amount of water to come into the driptray after each coffee brew. This is the pressure releasing from the brew unit. After a while coffee grouts will build up in the bottom of the slot where the brew unit slides on to the valve. (you see this slot when brew unit is removed), Get a small thin wire to poke in the hole and gently pour small amount of water by hand to clear any blockages.

clear water leaks from under the m/c can indicate leaks ffrom the teflon joints and/or steam valve assy. Some early machines had plastic steam valve assy's and leaked like mad. New stainless steel ones are fitted now.

hope this helps

Take out the brewing unit and check the hole in the chassis behind brew unit. It can also be the element that is leaking and have to be replaced.

It's possible, like mine with the same problem, that one or more of the plastic feet under the water tank has broken, then making the tank move and upsetting the valve underneath. My one always leaks clean water, never dirty and I have a broken foot.

SOURCE: Water leaking into machine

This happens when the boiler develops a leak, usually due to scale buildup. Order a new boiler and o-rings and replace.

Bunn pour omatic commercial coffee maker will not brew and it leaks

VPR is a pour over "Volume Displacement" brewer. Required to completely fill the inner tank and heat prior to using brewer. BEFORE plugging in unit, water must be poured into upper tray and with brew funnel and empty pot in place. Keep pouring water into top fill tray until water drips out of brew funnel. Plug in VPR and allow it 15-20 mins to heat up. leave the pot as there may be additional water dripping. Remove power if there is any water spilling out from other places like the top pan cover or bottom of machine. With the initial heating done, take a full pot of water and slowly pour into the top filling tray. HOT steaming water should come out of the brew funnel to fill the (empty) pot. Prep is done and the machine can be used to brew a pot after 10-15mins of reheat time.
*** the machine you have needs to be checked for leaks in areas mentioned above. Water should only come out of brew funnel (if not present then the brew head or if that is missing then the brew pipe. All will need to be replaced prior to brewing.) Leaking under machine is an indication of leak(s) in pour tray,tank,tank cover, gasket, probe gasket. This machine like any used equipment should be checked out by qualified tech prior to use. Be aware that coffee vendors sometimes rent or loan brewers to customers.

I have a bunn cwtf commercial brewer that is plumbed into water. Water will not stop leaking out of the plastic water tubing that empties into the water pan. When I put my finger over the metal spigot in...

The water tube is the tray filler (for brewing). This is the output from the water fill valve which is usually set at a timed interval just enough to fill the tray with water to make a desired brew. There are other units that will automatically sense the proper water amount and fill as needed.
* All of these are on demand systems and should not be filling excess water when not in use. Call your vendor for service.
* Excess water is usually caused by a leaking water fill valve which will need to be replaced. Tip: click the brew switch on and turn off the brewer to stop. Do this several times. You should hear a 'click' then a whine as water fills the brewing tray. Place an empty pot or metal decanter to catch the hot water from empty funnel (no coffee needed) The brew will be higher and will overfill the decanter so keep an eye on it and dump water as needed. What you are doing is possibly dislodging a bit of sand that may have got stuck in the valve thus causing a small leak. Snapping the valve several times may clear it. If not then call for service.
* Some time the timer can get scrambled as the newer units are all digital and get out of calibration or blown out. Especially after a blackout or Electrical storm. Call your vendor for service.
* Auto level probes can get dirty and will need service to clean as it's usually located inside the machine and tank.. Call a tech to be safe.
* Sometimes constant running of Hot water is a sign of a bad heater and/or thermostat. Thermostat may be shorted and boil all water off. Heater could have ruptured and short to ground which boils off water. Both cases will cause the brewer to boil vigorously (Gallop!) then run completely dry. Over heat and trip out breakers and or thermal fuses. Hopefully it shuts down before catching fire. (There are safe guards in place as Bunn equipment are well designed.)
* Finally: Leaks in any form, especially from the body of the brewer will cause an electrical hazard. Call your vendor for service and replacement.

Featherlite model 3M-852H

see this instructions:God bless you
Ensure the Dirt Devil is connected to a working power supply if it does not turn on or operate. Check the fuse or breaker and replace or reset as necessary.

  • 2 Empty the dirty water tank if there is little or no suction. Turn off the Dirt Devil and grab the top of the dirty water tank. Push on the latch to release the tank and pull the tank off the base. Remove the lid and empty the dirty water into a sink. Replace the cap and hook the front of the tank onto the machine base. Hook the nozzle on the base so that the nozzle is level with the cleaner base. Push the back of the dirty water tank down and into position.

  • 3 Check the dirty water tank and empty as necessary if there is water leaking from the cleaner. Open the latch on the top of the solution reservoir and pull the reservoir forward. Fill with Dirt Devil brand cleaner to the fill mark. Fill the rest of the reservoir with hot water and close the cap. Replace on the base unit.
  • 4 Make sure the solution reservoir is seated firmly in the base unit if there is no cleaning solution dispensing from the unit. Fill the solution tank with cleaner and water if the level is low.
  • 5 Examine the hose and nozzles for possible obstructions if the carpet cleaner does not seem to be operating correctly. Remove any blockages.

    Hi, i've taken the top and sides off my Bosch dish washer sgs45e02gbas it has not been working. the problem is ....when you switch it on is there is a pumping/throbing noise but doesn't continue...

    Hello Phillip,

    The reason only the pump runs anytime its powered up is because the flood detector has detected water in the base of the dishwasher and until that water is gone only the pump will run.That flood detector is (when looking at it from the front) is in the left front corner,its a styrofoam disc with a rod in the center of it and has floated up activating the flood switch on the letf side wall where the water enters the tub (can be seen on the left side with side panel removed) if thier is no water in the base frame perhaps some foreign object has wedged itself under the sytrofoam disc holding it up. Until the water is out of the base frame only the pump will run as long as the flood switch is tripped.

    Possible things that will make water be in the base frame are,
    oversuds from too much detergent
    a leak of any component or hose
    a defective water level switch allowing it to overfill

    Unit is leaking water on the left side and after we fill up the water container. We are placing it in the proper position but it leaks constantly. It there a service fix for such a situation? ...

    If its leaking under the water tank, its this.
    There is a seal on top of the machine under the water tank. To get to it, remove the water tank, and set aside. There is a large doughnut shaped cap on top of the machine. Slip a screwdriver on the outside edge of the cap and pry up gently. When it snaps up, go to the other side of the cap and do the same. There is a black seal in the center and if you stick your finger in the center and it lifts out, it needs to be replaced. Clean any residue inside the opening with a Q-tip.
    When you get the new seal, it won't slip in. Insert it at a slight angle (double lips down), then take your finger nail and run it around the bottom edge of the seal until it slips in, then push down. Snap the cap back on and your set to go.
    If its leaking under the machine, its your boiler.
    If its leaking into the dredge drawer, its the thiumbscrew in the brew unit, that holds the filter screen in.
    If its under your drip tray there is a pocket behind the brew unit that has a cloged drain, just above the center of the drip tray in back.

    Water leaking from underneath right side of refrigerator. Shut off water line to ice maker and still slowly leaking. Where is this coming from?

    check the defrost drain line and catch tray under the fridge. you may just have moved the hose out of the tray or the tray may be full.

    or it could just be your water valve has a slow leak. try turning off the water farther back on the supply line.

    My magic delux is leaking water.

    Possibly coffee grind to fine (adjust to a coarser grind) or blocked filters in central unit, try using a brewer de-tannin powder to clean. If neither of these seem to be the problem check the o ring that seals the central unit to the machine which may be leaking - if you remove the central unit you will see a cutout in the side panel of the machine inside you should see a vee shaped nozzle with an orange o-ring that may be the problem.

    I believe that model has a catch tray under the coils which catch the droplets of water and route that water into the tank. First, make sure your unit is pretty level. Then take a look at the bottom of the coils for the catch tray to make sure it's not dislodged or not level. Lastly check the catch tray outlet to make sure it's not blocked and will allow water to flow easily into the tank. The other thing is to make sure the tank is inserted correctly, and the catch tray water is routed into it. You don't mention if it ever worked correctly, but if this unit has been working for a long while, it may be dirty and you need to clean it to get the water to drip down correctly.
