BUNN VLPF series having fill issues

Our BUNN VLPF series coffee maker recently started having issues. Sometimes it will only fill the pot halfway during brew cycle other times it fills it 1-1/2 to 2 times the capacity and spills all over the counter. What could be the issue?

SOURCE: my bunn is too slow

Use the de-liming spring to clean the copper tube behind the spray head. Pour several pots of clear white vinegar through the unit to further remove lime and scale from the interior of your coffee maker. My Bunn is 24 years old, and the only replacement parts I've ever required are new carafes and the 4041 silicone washer repair kit.

If you pour water into the machine, and water comes out, then the reservoir is full of water. There is no way the water can bypass the reservoir and go directly into the pot.

Please get the model and code date located on the bottom of the brewer. The machine has a 3 year warranty and if it is 3 years old or less, it will be replaced at no cost. If it is older than 3 years old, it will be replaced at a discounted price. Once you have this information please call customer service.

SOURCE: cleaning

The metal proble is use to clean out the water tubing. Remove your sprayhead and insert the metal rod up in the hole leaving out about 1-2 inches. Then simply twist and turn the rod about 5-6 times. This will remove any lime deposits. Then flush out with 2-3 decanters of water. You can obtain a new manual by calling customer service or going to the website-www.bunn.com going to @home, then products-click on your brewer-and then select use and care manual and you can print it out or view it online.

The brewer is on a gravity feed system, after the initial fill, whatever you put in is what comes out. as for the start button check the water connection on the back, there might be a problem with the solenoid.

Sounds like your timer part #32400.0002.This is the new type timer which replaces the dial timer.Another thing is does this happen when you turn on the on/off switch? I would also check your liquid level probe in top of tank.Always a possibility bad liquid level board.If it only does this when you push the brew button the timer is bad.

My bunn vlpf coffee maker the water tank is overheating to the point of steam is spewing fro the air release tube... I'm thinking thermostat ?


You are correct.Also check the tank for lime.By unplugging and removing top of machine (2) screws and remove fill basin.You can then remove your t-stat probe to check.If it is lime up you can crack off the lime and reinstall it in the tank.If limed up I would suggest de-liming.T-stat part# 4314.0001.

The water comes out warm from both the coffee maker and the hot water tap. I have the BUNN VLPF series. This machine is only 4 months old and has never worked correctly.


Is it still under warranty? Bunn should take care of it for you if it is. Usually if the coffee is only warm it may mean that a thermal limit has tripped. The water stays warm because the tank has a heater blanket that is wrapped around it but you aren't getting any power to the heater that is in the tank.

Bunn VPR Series Coffee Maker will NOT dispense the water into the coffee pot?


This machine has a reservoir that holds about 2.5 pots and keeps them at brewing temperature. Therefore you should pour in 3 pots (with a pot in place under the filter basket) until water flows from the basket. Then, and ONLY then, it is safe to plug in the brewer. If you plug in the brewer BEFORE filling the reservoir you will burn up the heating element and will have to have it replaced.
After the initial filling and heat up (about 20 minutes) you are ready to pour through a pot of COLD water through and brew.

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.

Starts brewing to quick anddispenses before i can put pot under it.


Yes, I have a bunn also. Does the same thing. No way to fix problem, they don't have a shut off when pot is removed. What I did was bought a second pot I use to fill. Or you can use a water pitcher, just fill pot, pour into pitcher then fill machine. Only solution to help with problem, I do this and dont have coffee everywhere anymore.

Water over filling pot


There is a brew timer on the left side of your machine near the heater switch. you need to remove an access panel to access it. turn this down a little, let the water heat up, then try another brew. Adjust as needed, brewing another pot between each setting.
