Check the Grounding Circuit in your home. Get a tested at your local hardware that you plug into the wall. You might need to get a electrician or your local electrical company to make sure your not having any Main Service Connection problems that is feeding the electrcity back into your home via the Grounding Circuit. This Grounding Circuit is to keep you from being Shocked by touching your dryer cabinet.

SOURCE: 3 prong plugs becoming loose

Hi, You have a pot that was made in China. to fix the problem you have you have to replace the base. You can try to get one at Goodmens.com or Repair Shop.com. The China pot is very very inferior to the USA pots. I suggest buying a USA pot on eBay. The China pot is like owning a boat. Good luck . Ron

SOURCE: Why does the plug loosen and my coffee is cold after pouring???

The problem is the keep warm element. The reason, your pot perc's and it gets hot near the thermo, the thermo turns off the main element. The keep warm element is not on so after a small amount of time the water cools and the thermo turns the main element back on again, thus making the water hot. The K W element is supposed to be on all the time the pot is plugged in, it is instrumental in perking the first brew making it really hot, the thermo turns off the main element and the K W element keeps the water hot. The K M element is very a easy fix, it is the small looking white rope that runs around the bottom of the pot. You have 1-nut and 1- screw to remove. When removing the screw from the main element you must hold the (leg) that the K M element is screwed to so it does not bend and brake off. Take your time and be firm with the pressure you apply to the screw, while holding it with a pliers Good luck. bobbyone

My Bunn 10 Cup home Coffee Brewer Is Not Heating My Coffee Anymore


I would check your electrical supply. Plug in a hair dryer where the coffeemaker was plugged in and see if it works. If it doesn't there is probably nothing wrong with the coffeemaker.

No pot or instructions, how much water do you put in the coffee pot?Need a replacement pot for vp17 series. thank you


You should be able to pick up a replacement/new pot at your nearest Restaurant Supply store. Make sure you get a 64 oz./ 1/2 gallon pot.
Before plugging in your brewer, unscrew the sprayhead located just above where the filter basket sits and replace the basket, pour 3 pots of cold water through the opening on the top if the brewer is empty. This brewer has a reservoir that holds about 2 1/2 pots of water at brewing temperature when heated. Make sure you put an empty pot under the filter basket after pouring in the water. Water will flow from the brew basket when the reservoir has reached its capacity. Once water flows you can then plug in and energize your brewer and replace the sprayhead. It will take about 15 to 20 minutes for the brewer to reach brew temp, you will hear the heating stop. Put an empty filter and a dose of coffee (I recommend starting with a heaping measuring cup of drip ground coffee) into the filter basket, lightly shake it level, replace the basket and pour through 1 full pot of COLD water in the top. For best results pour the brewed coffee into a pre-heated thermal server if you plan on holding the coffee for more than 10 minutes or so.
Enjoy!

The tank inside holds about 2 and a hlalf pots of water. Once the tank is full, whatever you pour in will come out. The unit has to be plugged in to make coffee. Leave a pot under the brew funnel and pour a pot of water in. If nothing comes out within a minute, pour another pot of water in. Still if nothing comes out do it again. This time for sure water will come out. It will take avout 10 minutes to get hot enough the first time it is full to make coffee. If you have a thermometer, the water should be about 190 degrees F to make coffee correctly.

How do I take apart, and clean my coffee maker?


The only parts that should be removed to clean are the pot and the basket. The remaining parts you just clean with a cloth and hot soapy water (squeezed out) then you clean the inside with 1 part white vinegar and 1 part water. Run a cycle through the pot then run again with just plain water. This do once every 3-4 mos. depending on how often you use your coffee pot. You can actually put them on the top of a dishwasher rack also. You may risk electrical shock if you take it apart.

How do I get the BUNN VPR coffee maker to brew a pot of coffee? There are two switches; one for the lower, and one for the upper warmer. Do I first have to fill the tank ALL the way before it brews? Please...


This brewer has a 2 1/2 pot reservoir. You should NOT plug in the brewer before the reservoir has been topped off. Pour 3 pots (one at a time, every minute or so) through the screen with a pot under the filter basket. Wait until the water flows from the basket and only then is it safe to plug in the brewer. The reservoir holds HOT water until you are ready to brew and then, by pouring in a pot of cold water, you will be able to brew.

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.

Cord heats up electric percolator when it makes coffee. What is the problem?


It is not unusual for this to happen - particularly near the ends (the plug end and the coffee pot end). This happens due to one or more of the following: at the coffee pot end the heating element inside the pot is actually transferring to the cord connector and the cord, where it is exposed to room temperature air and is cooled down. The cord shouldn't be warm more than a couple inches from the end. At the outlet end and the pot end: can be caused by weakened contacts inside the outlet itself. Repeated plugging and unplugging cords during an outlet's normal service eventually causes the spring of the contact metal to fatigue. The weakened contacts do not "grip" the prongs of the plug, so the power needed by the pot has less area to pass between the outlet and the prongs of the plug. You only notice it on the high power devices such as toasters, hair dryers, etc.

You might consider replacing the outlet and seeing if the problem is reduced or goes away. In the case of the pot, the spring metal contacts are usually in the cord connector. Replacement of the cord should solve the heat problem in this case.

Please take a moment to rate this advice is you found it helpful. Thanks - and good luck!
