Water not getting hot anymore

by 'reset' do you mean that you moved it, tilted it, shut it off and back on?

Coffee starts dripping down before I can get the water all poured in and the pot on the warmer, causing a mess.

This is common with bunn coffee makers, if you are not fast enough, coffee starts dripping. The only solution I found is to use a water pitcher, first fill coffee pot to cup mark you are using, then pour into pitcher, put pot back on machine, then pour in water. You can mark a line on picture, so you know where to fill to each time.

I have a Bunn VPR, it brews fine for a couple pots

Try running a quarter-pot 50/50 solution of white vinegar and cold water through to clean out calcium deposits in the pump system. Use a clean filter to catch the pumped debris. When pumped through, let cool somewhat, and reuse the cold mixture again twice more. Pour out the vinegar solution and run several cold water loads through to wash out the taste. Hope this helps!

Poured water into a Bunn Vpr coffee maker, the coffe was cold. Why did this happen?

Possible the hi-limit turned off the heater, the thermostat is not working or the elements are damaged, or the inline thermal fuse is damaged.

I haveBX-B . I had the pot set up for me to push the on button for Monday Morning, but the water ran throug and it was not on.So now I have cold coffee in the Decanter.

The Bunn coffee maker does not operate as most coffee makes do. You cannot leave the Bunn in the off position and then just flip the switch to on and pour the water in. You will always get cold coffee if you do this. It takes time for it to heat the water. The On/Off switch should be left in the On position all the time. This keeps the water hot in the tank, thus providing hot water when you need to make coffee. You then just pour the cold water in the top, shut the lid, and have a pot of coffee in 3 minutes. The On/Off switch is a vacation switch, and you use it only when you are not going to use the coffee maker for a couple of days. Older Bunn coffee makers did not even have an On/Off button. You simply unplugged them when going on vacation. So turn the switch to the On position and leave it there. The unit will then work as designed. Forget how other coffee makers work, this is a Bunn and it is the fastest coffee maker you can buy and must be left on all the time. that way the water stays hot and the unit will keep it that way.

Just bought a Bunn coffee maker at a garage sale great condition how do you make the coffee I have poured water in turned the side switch on and the warmer switch yet nothing?????

The machine requires an initial set up to be completed before using it. Fill the decanter with cold water and close the lid. It will take 3 minutes to partially fill the water tank in the back. Then fill the decanter again with cold water and pour in and close the lid. Then plug in the machine and turn the vacation switch on the side of the machine on. After 15 minutes, you will be ready to brew coffee. Then you will get your filter basket ready with the filter and grounds. Pour in from 4-10 cups of water and place the decanter on the base. Close the lid and the coffee will begin to brew. If you will call customer service with the model and date code, a use and care manual can be sent out to you at no cost.

Bad tasting coffee

you can always clean a coffeemaker with vinegar, but always pour in cold, so you can do it twice or more, but dont re-use the stuff you just used, wait till it's cold or just use some other.after use clean by let water through 2 or 3 times, (also only cold water)

Bunn coffee maker

It sounds like you have a pour over model and the problem is the tank isn't full. Turn the machine off (or unplug it). Put a pot on the warmer like you are going to brew coffee. Pour clean cold water into the top until it starts coming out the sprayhead (above where the coffee grounds go). Now plug it in and turn on. Let it heat up then you can brew.

The way your machine works is that there is always about 2-1/2 pots of water in the tank. The water you pour in to make coffee is actually pushing the hot water in the tank out. So, if you don't fill the tank before using it, you may be hurting the heating element since it isn't totally submerged in water.

Most likely it is your tank heater, but look on the top of the tank heater, because sometimes the wire will burn off the top of the element
