SOURCE: BT-10-B Bunn Thermofresh that will not heat or fill pot

Lots of times minerals clooect on the heating element and inside the heating chamber. The easiest thing to try is to put white vinegar into the filler, displacing some of the water into the pot. Leave this to soak for about an hour, then flush with several pots of water until the vinegar smell cannot be detected in the water. Make sure that the switch on the side is "ON". You may have an indicator light. The switch on the upper front is for the warmer. The reason you only got a partial pot of water is that the reservoir wasn't completely full. Once you have filled it completely, you should fet a full pot out for every full pot in. If all of the above gives you no relief, you may need to test the heating element for voltage and continuity. If it tests 'open', you will need to replace it.
Good luck, --W/D--

SOURCE: My Bunn leaks out of the back of the machine when

I have the same problem and I took the coffee maker apart to find out why. The hole in the black pastic that the water flows through to get into the stainless steel tank may not have a tight fitting with the plastic and that's where I had water leakage. I'm looking around for a fix, but it may have to be done with a mixture of adhesives and miscellaneous rubber plumbing washers. Unless somebody knows where to get parts for a really old coffee maker that still makes great coffee! Anyone?

SOURCE: my bunn thermofresh coffee pot will no longer keep

Is the coffee coming out hot enough? If you measure the coffee as it comes into the carafe, it should register at 175-185 degrees. If it doesn't, then it is a problem with the machine and needs to be replaced. If it is that temperature, then the carafe needs to be replaced. Please contact customer service with the model and date code located on the bottom of the machine. If the machine is 3 years or less it can be replaced at no cost. If over 3 years, it can be replaced at a reduced cost.

Bunn coffee pot leaking bottom


The leak is most likely between the water reservoir and the tank. Bunn uses a soft silicone seal for that connection that gets compressed over time and starts to leak water whenever you make a pot of coffee.

It's planned obsolescence. Bunn won't sell you a new seal. So you have to improvise. But it's simple enough to do.

Remove the top cover and the plastic water reservoir right below it. Don't tamper with the little valve that opens when you close the lid.

Look for the seal. It could be stuck to the bottom of the reservoir, or sitting loosely on top of the metal tank. Make sure to preserve its top-to-bottom orientation (don't put it back in upside down).

Apply a narrow bead of clear silicone into the grooved side of the seal. Press the seal gently onto the reservoir, then apply a thin layer to the smooth side.

Re-install the reservoir and reassemble the unit.

Warranty is 1 year parts and labor, 2 years parts only and 3 years for control boards. That model does not have a control board. You could have a bad thermostat, bad high limit, bad thermal link or bad element. Without you having a multimeter anSd the knowledge of how to use it properly it would be best to replace the unit.

RANCID BUTTER melted in Bunn Thermofresh resevoir vents!


There is one thing you can try first. With the machine filled with water and turned on, pour in 1 quart of white vinegar and let it sit in there for 2 hours. Then flush it back out with 8-10 carafes of water. If this doesn't correct the problem, then call customer service with the model and code date. This can be replaced under the warranty if it is under 3 years old or less. If it is over 3 years old, it can be replaced at a reduced price.
