Tip

Cleaning a coffeemaker/tea brewer


Every month or so, run a complete brewing cycle using white vinegar in place of water. Follow with 2 complete cycles using plain water.
Water quality in many places is not so good. The heat of the brewing process causes the solids (calcium, lime, &tc) in the water (especially HARD water) causes scale to form on the inside of the tubing. This not only affects the taste of the coffee (or even tea), but slows the brewing time by preventing water flow due to decreased diameter of the tubing.

I can do the vinegar thing but the cleaner thing is a piece of plastic. I just dont know how a piece of flat plastic is going to help.


Do you have the de-limer spring that came with the coffeemaker?

Sometimes you have to take the top off of the coffeemaker & run the spring down the entrance hole to clear lime obstruction from the tank fill tube.

There are 2 or 3 phillips-head screws that hold the top on. 2 are under the water reservoir fill cover, and a 3rd may be in on the middle -top towards the back. Depends on your exact model.

Once the top is off, you'll see a lever arm.that keeps the water from flowing down the fill tube while the reservoir cover is raised. To get access to the fill tube, you gently pop this out from the pivot point with some upward pressure, Run the de-liming spring down the tube a few times to make sure it's clear.

Reverse the above process to reassemble.

Be sure and remove & clean the spray head over the brew-basket after de-liming also. Sometimes chunks of minerals block the holes.

Before calling service technician, open following link for Rheem tankless resources including error codes and possible manual.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Rheem-Tankless-water-heater.html

Read your manual for troubleshooting, advisories and required maintenance.
Tankless are maintenance heavy.
1L means tankless heat exchanger has lime build-up.
De-lime tankless unit.
U-tube has videos for de-liming tankless, but there is more to consider:

De-liming is yearly maintenance requirement.
Tankless are prone to lime build-up
Regular de-liming will not restore full efficiency to tankless unit.
Tankless cannot be exposed to water with more than 11 grains hardness.
Temperatures over 135 can cause minerals in water to harden on metal surfaces of any water heater.

Also clean Tankless water filter each month, and clean and maintain burner and combustion chamber yearly.
The cost of maintenance and cost of expected repairs and cost of parts plus cost of original installation will never pay back the $1-8 monthly savings on gas bill. All costs are energy.
Make sure there is qualified service technician in area before buying tankless.

Upvote the help.
And take advantage of fixya expert assistance live.
For a price, expert works with you while you work on water heater or any do-it-yourself project.
Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.

I am getting a IL code on my display


IL code is: water heater has lime deposits.
Tankless should be de-limed each year using white vinegar..
Search U-tube for "de-lime tankless heater" to see how to do this yourself, or call service technician.
There are special fittings that can be added to tank at the hot-n-cold ports that let you easily de-lime your water heater each year.

Typical manual shows error IL on page 33:
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Rheem-RTG74IndoorOutdoor_owners.pdf

Typical manual also shows regular maintenance on page 29.
The word maintenance is used throughout the manual.

Research shows that regular de-liming will not restore full efficiency to tankless water heaters:

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 Controller displays error code "1L."
There is a build-up of lime in your Paloma.
Contact your plumber to service the Paloma by flushing out the lime.
Also search u-tube for flushing lime out of tankless.

The water is coming out of our BUNN very slowly.What is the matter?


Your sprayhead and steel tube which connects to the sprayhead from the tank may have a lime build up. Simply remove the sprayhead and clean it with a wire brush and make sure the holes are clear of any lime or debris. In order to clean the tube which is what the sprayhead screws onto you will need a deliming spring. www.midstatebeverage.com

Bunn perks coffee very slow?


This is generally an indication of a lime build-up in the water tubing. If you take off the sprayhead and insert the metal deliming tool into the water tubing all the way leaving out about 1-2 inches and twist it about 5-6 times, this should remove the lime deposits from the water tubing. Then flush out the machine with 2-3 decanters of water. If this doesn't fix the problem, then call customer service with the model and date code for further assistance.
