Question about Bunn 10 Cup Home Coffee Brewer
I am losing 1/2 pot of clear water every time I put water in to make coffee or just water for tea. I have emptyed the whole thing and turned over and found nothing only screws that have rusted from the water leaking through. is there a fix or do we need to replace?
If this is one of those units with the leaver that starts brewing when you close the fill lid, I have the fix. What has happened is that the "tank" that holds the just added water has deteriated due to heat from the stailess steel tank that hold the hot brewing water. This tank remains hot as long as the side switch is in the "on" position. You will have to remove the (3) screws that you can see from the top of the coffee maker. (2) are under the lid where you fill water. Remove the top of unit. You will find the lever in this "tank". You will need to remove the lever to access the fitting that screw into the stainless steel tank. This is the area that has deteriated from the heat. You will also need to remove (2) screws to be able to remove this "tank" for repair. After you clean the area where the "fitting" was removers from the top of the stailess steel tank. Apply a bead of RTV silicone around this area. This can be found in automotive stores. The RTV will form a seal around this deteriated area. IMPORTANT Make sure you don;t put to much RTV on parts. You don;t want to interfere with the seal on the leaver. Replace the "tank" along with the washer & fitting. Replace the (2) screws also. Replace the leaver. Replace the top cover with the (3) screws. Let unit sit overnight to allow RTV to set. I have done this fix twice. 3 years apart. I have not been able to find this part to purchase sepratlly. I can't see paying $85 for a refurbished unit.

I had similar problem with unit leaking from bottom . Leak is actually inside the fill tank on top. Mine is not lever activated. I removed three screws from tank top, lifted out the cover then unscrewed the tank to heater orfice. this is a brass fitting which can be removed using a table knife handle as an oversize screwdriver. The seal under the fitting has failed. By inserting an o ring under the fitting and reassembling the unit, the leaf has been repaired. o ring size is approximately 1 & 1/4 inches in dia. you can find at local hardware.

really matter what bean you use to make Turkish coffee, what really matters is the
pot that you make it in. An Ibrik is a traditional Turkish coffee pot which you
can fill two thirds full with water. Add sugar and a heaped teaspoon of coffee.
The coffee creates a seal at the narrow top. As you bring it to the boil the
coffee with foam. You should let it foam three times before pouring into small
cups. Let the grounds settle to the bottom of the cup before you drink it and
don't stir it just before drinking.

you've got a coffee filter pot as this is the
most common kind (especially as
1. Boil the water.
2. Put the filter (should come with the
pot) into the filter holder.
3. Add 2 level tbsp. of ground coffee
per 6 oz of water.
4. Pour some of the hot water over the
coffee grounds, giving them a few seconds to swell.
5. Now add the rest of the hot water and
allow the coffee to slowly drip through the filter.
6. Remove the filter with the coffee
grounds in just before the final drops of water go through.
7. Now sit down and enjoy!

For a 12 cup
coffee maker. Fill the coffee pot (the part that holds the water) with 6 cups
of vinegar and then top up with water until you reach the line. Now turn it on
as if you were making regular coffee. Once the hot vinegar has come through,
pour it into the water cavity and run the cycle again.
Now you can tip the vinegar out and clean out the coffee pot with soapy water. Run another cycle but with plain water this time and after that you should be able to use your machine without any leftover residue from the vinegar.
