Question about Bunn 10 Cup Home Coffee Brewer
The Bunn has a little stopper that closes the water drain port in the reservoir while the lid is open. You can see a little white plastic pin protruding up out of the grate with the lid open. When you close the lid, it pushes on that pin which causes the stopper to lift off the drain port, allowing the water in the reservoir to enter the heating tank.
If water is entering the coffee basket BEFORE the lid is closed, then something is wrong with that little stopper. It may have a chunk of debris on it preventing it from sealing, or it may be deteriorated, torn, disconnected, etc.
Only way to know is to remove the the screws in the grate and pull the top off exposing the reservoir, and the stopper assembly. The little plastic flapper disc should be seated in the reservoir drain port. It should be relatively flat (not wrinkled) and covering the drain port completely. Test it by pouring some water into the reservoir. If it drains out without you activating the stopper, then a repair is needed.
Move the lever up and down and check its operation. The arm must move freely and close when released. There should be no dirt or debris on the sealing surface of the flapper nor on the sealing surface of the drain port. Gently clean with vinegar as necessary. If the seal is damaged, then a replacement is required.

When you pour water into the brewer, gravity pushes the cold water into the tank and it displaces the hot water in the tank forcing out the hot water through the delivery tube into the brew basket and ultimately into the pot. This will happen whether the machine is turned on or not, it is a simple process of displacement.

With all drip brew coffee makers, water is lifted to the top of the machine where it drips into the coffee basket by heat--heat transferred to the water in the reservoir from a turned-on hot plate. While the plate is being heated above by the heating coil, the water in the lift tube is being heated below. The function works just like any old percolator type pot where the heat under the pot raises water temperature from below and making it rise up through the basket support pedestal where hits the lid glass to show its working and then washes through the grounds carrying brewed (liquid) coffee through the basket (perforations) and back down into the water supply at pot bottom...which gradually tranforms to coffee itself. .
In the case of the drip coffee maker, the water in the up tube rises because it has nowhere elso to go. It is a relatively small amount of water in the tube being heated (usually) by the hot plate coil, but the reservoir from which that water in the tube came contains relatively heavier and more dense cold water in large quantity and weight that blocks the heated water from going backbackwards toward the reservoir water. So as long as heat is applied from the hot plate, and there is reservoir water to enter lift tube from the reservoir, the water will drip flow out at the top over the drip brew basket.
So, make sure your coffee maker (hot plate) is turned off when adding water and the problem will be eliminated because no water will be heated...until you are ready to flip the switch to on, and brew..
