There is a ready light (green but sometimes red) that will go on and off as the brewer heats up. It will periodically turn off when re-heating but should light when ready. This is normal.
* Bunn have red rocker switches that are sometimes lit when in use. Some do flicker but still work. Call for service if not.
* Rocker (RED) switches should have a definite click sound from the switch. these are usually the warmer plate or on/off switches. Some may flicker but you can check the warmer plate if it's working. Ask the vendor to change it the next time they come by as it still works but annoying.
* The black rockers (unlit) should snap to all EXCEPT the brew switch which tends to be mushy with a spring back. The only way to know if it works is the plate gets warm.
* Check the outlet if any other machine shows intermittent power. Some places overload the outlet and trip the breaker or GFRI so frequently most people unknowing think the power blacks out all night but really someone just reset the breaker. Have maintenance move the brewer on another outlet (and breaker) or have the breaker checked as it may be worn.
* Call your vendor anyway as there may be an electrical short or loose wire inside the brewer. Many times I've found the warmer plate wires burnt or fell off the terminals.

SOURCE: dell monitor

Who manufactured it? Better call them to check if the monitor's still under warranty. Im thinking it has to be replaced and may eventually fail completely.

SOURCE: TV will not stay on

You have done everything that a consumer can do. The problem is most likly in the horizontal section of the tv. This will be something for a repair shop to fix.

SOURCE: Wii won't power up

Leave the wii power brick unplugged from the wall socket for 15 min then try to plug it back in. This worked for me.

SOURCE: InFocus IN72 shuts off after 20 min.

internal error. if the lamp looks ok and it doesn't have many hours on it, it might be the power supply. the capacitors dry out and do not supply sufficient voltage. the in72s do have that problem.

SOURCE: machine won't start- checked plug -didn't start-

Make sure that the AC receptacle has voltage by plugging in another device. If it is dead, the breaker servicing that outlet may have tripped (without reason, I've replaced a couple of failed breakers) or the outlet may be protected by a 'Ground Fault Interrupter' (GFI). If this is tripped it would be due to either a momentary imbalance of the line or possibly electrical leakage within the washer. This latter problem needs to be cured as it presents a safety hazard if the GFI fails to trip as it should.

Month Old Bunn smells hot


Bunn machine smells hot
* Check for unusual sounds from brewer (other than sizzling from warmer plates). There should be a gradual boiling sound accompanied by some steaming at the top of brewer. This will turn off and ready light indicating the brewer is ready to brew.
* You may sometimes hear a slight boiling sound from time to time (about 15-30 mins apart). Notify your vendor as the warmer blanket may be out. (your brewer will still work but call them anyway.)
* Check your manual for setting up procedures and checks. It's available on line: http://www.bunn.com/product-manuals
* Constant boiling (more than 15 mins) with lots of steaming is a sign of an electrical problem. Unplug machine and call vendor for service.
* Final; Unplug unit and check for 'stuff' in pour over tray. I've found Chocolate, Cream, Milk, powder, sugar, honey, and a dead rat in the tray. Crew will repour old coffee or beverages into brewer to 're-heat' them. Notify vendor for cleaning or replacement (it happens all the time.)

Can I leave my bunn vpr plugged in at all times or do I need to unplug it each time after use?


Good. Morning
My rule of the thumb is to leave all electrical appliances plugged at all times, when I am at home, when I travel I unplug everything. The TV!, DVD, coffee machine and so on. I usually leave one radio on.
So when I come back there is live in the house.
this has worked well for me,
all the. Est

I looked up your model number. You particular machine allows for wash with the lid open. You nothing happens. On that case I would check the motor capacitor.

Not working


It sounds like 2 separate problems:

1) One of the cooktop lights may have shorted. Sometimes this happens and causes damage (repairable) to the control circuit board. Sometimes it will result in the lights or fan not working, or not turning on.

2) You may have a bad magnetron. See this FixYa solution.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Less than one year old. Takes 10 or more minutes to brew a pot of coffee. I have followed cleaning and deliming instructions three times. Did not help.


Hello. the problem is the little sprayer that sprays water into the coffee grounds. They get clogged with coffee oil and coffee grounds. Unplug the machine, tip it upside down in the sink so the water doesn't go everywhere and use a straight pin to clean out the little holes of the spray nozzle. That nozzle should unscrew, which would make it easier to clean. When you are looking at the nozzle, unscrew it by turning it counterclockwise. Joe

Our office is relocating and I need to prepare our Bunn coffee maker to be moved. It appears to be working fine now, but we do live in a hard-water area. So: - Obviously we will be unplugging it. Can it be...


I work for BUNN. Yes, you can empty it - here's a link to instructions http://www.bunn.com/retail/service/faq.html#faq6

Also, it's absolutely a perfect time to do the Periodic Cleaning of your brewer - here's a link to instructions for using vinegar to thoroughly clean your brewer. http://www.bunn.com/retail/service/cleaning.html

If you want to move the brewer without draining, please be sure to unplug it and let the water cool for about 6 hours before moving it (the water inside is 200 degrees). Then, when you get to the new location you can just plug it in and let it heat up.

Any other questions, please let me know. lisa.mccloud@bunn.com

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
