Re: The bottom warmer no longer heats up

Generally, the cost of parts makes this prohibitive.

I have a Bunn coffee maker with date code of 401406. It is almost 4 years old and still brews perfectly. The warming plate does not heat up any longer so the coffee will not stay warm after it is brewed....

The manual for this coffee maker can be found at this link:
While the manual does not contain repair instructions, it does have some troubleshooting tips to follow if your coffee is not staying hot.

The coffee is very weak. Have tried several different coffees but the same with all Brands. Have cleaned the top were the water comes out. Have run several cycles of water through it but coffee still is...

Make sure the 'vacation' switch is turned on. In addition to the warmer switch on the front of the unit, there should be another switch located on the side/rear of the coffee maker. If that is turned off, the water won't be pre-heated, and you end up with luke-warm water going through the coffee during the brew cycle. If that is not the problem, then there is an issue with the tank heating element and the unit will have to be repaired.

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.

Lukewarm water...tank do I fill it if it is supposed to fill automatically from an outside line?

It looks like this brewer has a fill lid on top. If you remove the screw on the lid you can remove it and pour cold water through (1/2 gallon per pot). If the brewer was energized and NOT filled with water before hand there is a good chance that the heating element burned up. The reason you would still get "lukewarm" water is due to the keep warm heater around the tank. It is a low voltage warmer that keeps the reservoir warm without the main heating element kicking in.

Water wont heat. Warmer has no heat but light is on

Hello, One of the wires soldered to the underside of the warming plate had fell off due to poor soldering.The warming plate and the warning light are connected together with piggy back connectors so that is why the light is on even when the warmer is cold. Bye

I just get bunn VPS it is and work very good

The switches are for the "warmers" only. The brewer has a reservoir the keeps water hot and ready for brewing. When it is not re-heating water (after brewing) it has a "keep warm" heater that is low voltage and keeps it ready to go.

Here are some possible causes ,the hi temp cut out ,thermostat, or heating element are bad .a continuity tester can determine whitch one .Also you could have a burnt off wire . The reason the water is still luke warm is a electic warming jacket that bunn put around the water tank to limit the therostat cycles during off peak usage very fixable hope this helps

Using a thermal pot

I also bought the thermal carafe; before I could hack the warming plate, my wife set the "Auto Off" feature to 1 minute, which shuts off the carafe heater. The settings are preserved unless you lose power for an extended period.

The warmer does still warm through the brewing cycle but it doesn't overheat the carafe (IMO.) Hope this helps.

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.
