Question about Bunn CW 15-APS Coffee Maker

1 Answer

I have a bunn CW series brewer. I filled the reserve with water and allowed to get hot. I then add additional water (1 glass pot) and it just starts to dispense without me hitting the "start" button. I also noticed that when I hit the "start" button I don't hear anything that would engage the machine. Could the switch be bad? What would cause the machine to just dispense water when I add that additional pot?

Sounds like the switch is stuck in the operate position. Therefor once the machine hits temperature it just brews. Your local Bunn distributor should be able to recommend an engineer to replace the switch or supply the correct t,hope of switch if your confident enought Tom replace it yourself.

Open the front panel, there is a set of instructions on it, you will have to make sure the board is set to program and not lock, before you adjust.

Remove the front panel and make sure the pressure stat is turned up to max and back it up 1/4 way. If you have done that already then remove the top and check the thermostat and the inline fuse.

Bunn CW Coffee Brewer not brewing enough coffee - amount is half


Have you cleaned lately, put in an empty filter and fill with cold water with a tablespoon of white/clear vinegar. Run the brew cycle, empty pot and while still worm fill with cold water again with out vinegar. Than check filter to see how much hard water chunks are in the filter. Repeat with and without vinegar tell filter is clean. One question though is there a lot of steam coming out of the top during the brewing cycle if so inside there is a tube that may be cracked, broken or came loose, have to look inside. requires opening or disassembling unit to check. REMEMBER when taking apart UNPLUG unit first.

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.

My cw series is a plumbed-in unit. Water flows continuously from the spray head. I think that either (1) the water level sensor is bad (2) the shut off valve is stuck open. Ideas? Can the water level...


The CW series brewers do not have level probes they run strictly on a timer and a solenoid to control the water flow. So, that said, the problem could be the solenoid. If the brewer constantly drips/runs even when the front "ON/OFF" switch is off then it is the solenoid. If the brewing stops with switch off then it is the timer. The timer is located in the panel behind the filter basket on the front of the machine (6 screws) If the brewer has a manual timer set it to about 2 minutes, a good starting point for a pot of water (1/2 gallon). If it stops brewing then you need to fine tune the timer to give you right amount of water for your brewing method. If it doesn't stop... then you will need a new timer. If your brewer does NOT have a "dial/manual" timer follow the instructions on the backside of the panel to "reset" the brew level. If it does not reset you will need a new control board. Hope this helps.

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.

Inconsistent water amount being dispensed


It sounds like there is some build up in the brew line, find the nearest bunn dealer and get a delimming spring, then remove the shower and run spring through brew line.

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.
