    Have you tried to run the deliming spring through the brew tube, or have you tried to adjust the brew level?

Use the dial with numbers on it and adjust to a higher number. Remember to go in half steps such as 2 adjusted to 2 1/2, 3 adjust to 3 1/2 etc.

If you only have a High Low knob, that is to set your water temp.

If you have an electronic circuit board, you will need to follow the batch instructions pasted on the inside cover (facing the lower burner) to adjust for water level/batch. This cover has 4 screws.

How do you get a bunn pour omatic coffe maker to pour water into the hopper. I put water where it's supose to go it heats up but no water come out. Is there something I'm not doing. Its an older one.


did you pour in another pot of water? It heats up the reserve tank so you always have hot water instantly, but to get that water you need to pour in another pot of water to replace it.

My pour-omatic steams up overnight then will not brew full pot


Check the thermostat on the machine, make sure pot is full before brewing. The water in the tank just heats up it is loosing most of it, make sure lid is on pour in screen.

My bunn omatic coffee maker is putting out too much water. about 1 and 1/2 pots worth... the model number is OT20


More than likely could be a bad timer.Check the time of the brew cycle is consistant each time.See if the sprayhead is in place.You may also try rodding out the brew tube with a de-liming spring p.n. 1111.0000.

It only makes 1/2 pot when I pour the water in after sitting over night some times it takes 2 pot of water or more to make a full pot


I recommend slowly pouring in about a half a pot of cold water without coffee in the filter basket 5 or so minutes before you brew in the morning. There are 2 good reasons to do this-
1. Overnight you are having some evaporation due to the fact that your Bunn brewer has a reservoir that keeps a couple of pots worth of water at brewing temperature... a better temp than most "home" model brewers. This will top off the reservoir and you will not "short pot" except for the amount that the grounds themselves hold back.
2. Also overnight, due to the fact that the water is kept hot, the oxygen can dissipate from the water in the tank. Topping off with fresh water will mean a fresher first pot.
The Bunn brewers have a low wattage/keep warm heater so the actual heating element isn't doing all of the work over those long periods... it only kicks on when the temperature in the reservoir drops considerably (like after brewing). Be sure to let the brewer heat back up before brewing (you will hear it stop heating)
Hope this helps.

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!

Inconsistent water amount being dispensed


It sounds like there is some build up in the brew line, find the nearest bunn dealer and get a delimming spring, then remove the shower and run spring through brew line.

Bunn Coffee machine only makes 1/2 pot


What's happening is that it isn't leaking, it's boiling over. You need to turn down the thermostat under the top lid. Also, before you brew coffee, add water to the tank and let it pour into an empty pot. Once it stops brewing, let it heat up for a few minutes then make your pot of coffee.

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
