    The warmer does not keep the coffee hot and it is less than a year old

  • Rebbecca Feb 22, 2008

    Had the pot only a couple months. The warmer is on when the pot is brewing then then once it beeps to indicate brewing is complete, the light shuts off and the warmer won't stay on.

I called Cuisinarts repair center and they had me set my auto off button. It had been set to 0 so it shut off as soon as it started brewing. If you turn the switch to auto off, then when the numbers are blinking hit the hour button until you get the desired hours you want the heating element to stay on. Then when you stop hitting it it will remain at that time after you brew your coffee. If that doesn't work you can call the help line at 800-726-0190, just give them your model number and serial number, the device carries a 3 year warentee

Check for a free download of manual with maintenance instructions.
* In general;
-Keep the area clean by wiping down with a damp clean cloth.
-Remove the brew funnel and wipe spray head of coffee and grit.
-Wash the brew funnel after each use.
-Dump out old coffee and wash pots after closing. Heavy coffee stained pots can be filled with plain water and soak over nite. Rinse clean before using.
-For extreme caked on dried coffee pots; fill with hot water and leave on warmer over nite. Ask vendor for URN cleaner and add a tablespoon in pot with hot water. Let sit over nite on warmer plate. Rinse clean prior to use.
-Check if everything is working properly. Better to call and leave a message for service.
* when in doubt, call vendor for service.

DCC-1200 leaks coffee onto carafe and warmer plate

My coffee pot was leaking over the carafe and onto the warmer. I found that this issue was caused by the carafe lid. The lid was not allowing coffee to flow into the pot fast enough. I removed the inner mechanism from the carafe lid (it pops off really easily) and just sit the lid on top of the pot while brewing, and no more leaks! After brewing, I put the mechanism back onto the lid and twist lid onto the pot.

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.

I have a bunn coffee maker that when it brews the first pot is hot after that the next one is not. It is the coffee maker that has two warmers on top. i didnt know if would be the heating element or...

While this brewer does have a reservoir that keeps a couple of pots worth of water hot for brewing you can get a cooler second pot if you brew directly after. You should hear the brewer heating up after brewing. Try waiting until it is back to temperature before re-brewing. If that heating takes more than a few (3-4) minutes then you probably have a problem with the heating element and the water is only being heated by the "keep warm" heater.

Will not percolate. Water is poured, it heats up, no coffee brew

Bunn Home brewers don't perculate. They work the same way that commercial brewers do. Fillit with water, let it heat for about 20 minutes, then put your filter and coffee grounds in the funnel, pour a pot of water into the machine, put the pot on the warmer, and let the water run through. Then enjoy a nice hot cup of coffee.

How do I make coffee with a Grindmaster Pourover Coffee maker?

1) Place filter into brew basket.
2) Put the proper amount of coffee into the filter.
3) Slide the brew basket into holder.
4) Place empty decanter on warmer located directly under the brew basket and turn corresponding warmer switch ON.
5) Pour decanter of fresh water through pour-in opening at top of brewer.
6) Hot water will be delivered through the sprayhead. This distributes the hot water evenly over the coffee bed within the brew basket. The coffee will drain from brew basket into the container below.
7) Red light indicates warmer is ON.
8) Before brewing next pot, remove brew basket from brew rails and dump filter into waste basket.

Warming plate boils coffee.

Make sure you are using the type of commercial coffee pot like the one in the picture. They don't have to have to be plastic with the metal bottom, they can be all glass. The commercial pots are heavy duty and usually disperse the heat well.

If you are using commercial pots the only solution without replacing the warmers is to put three pennies on the warmer and to put the pot on top of them. The pennies will get hot so don't forget and grab them but the pennies help to move the pot just a little way away from the direct heat.
