Jus got coffeemaker for it. I make coffee in it and the burner goes off in about 30 minutes and don't keep the coffee hot. I cant make the burner come back on...why?

The 30 minute machine shut off is a protective control. If you want to continue to use the coffee after 30 minutes, you can try the following:

1- Transfer the coffee in a Thermos immediately after coffee is made and hot.
2- Transfer the coffee in a metal pot with a lid and place it on a burner at the lowest flame setting.

Manufacturers try to included features for most common and popular use. There is no coffee maker that will suit individual circumstances, like & conveniences.

When my bunn 3 burner coffee maker is idle and off, water leaks from the top and over the weekend it leaves a puddle on the floor. What causes this?

Sounds like the the thermostat is boiling the water, try turning down the thermostat if that does not work, it might need to be replaced.

Water leaks out between coffee brew basket and carafe.

If you are noticing the water that is leaking at the base, I was having the same problem. If you can specifically see that the leak is coming from between the basket and carafe - then you may have a different problem. My problem appears to be that the heating element is shot - it leaks when you start the brewing cycle. I found this out by taking off the bottom and raising up the coffee maker and puting it on a mirror to view what was going on. As soon as the brewing starts and the system is under pressure, water starts forming on the metal tubing part of the heating element. I suppose it's possible that water is leaking down from the tubes, but it looks like it is getting forced out of the metal, so there must be small holes, caused by corrosion. I will check further but I can't find a replacement heating element online so I may have to purchase a new coffee maker.

I have a FT series Mr Coffee (Black and Silver) When we pour water in it, the water runs out the bottom of the coffee maker. Its not over 8 months old.

Could be as simple as a hose that popped loose, or as serious as a cracked tank...the only way to know for sure is to pull the bottom plate and have a look.

Most retailers have a generous return policy, and you never really know what you can't have until you ask...but if this is not an option, a 30 minute project could save you the replacement cost.

Remove the base plate screws* and lift easy to reveal the heater element and hoses to the water tank.

*Torx screws (a star pattern) require a special driver that can be found cheap at any auto parts store.

Check the hoses one at a time for leaks (cracks, dry spots, tight fit, etc) and look at the bottom of the tank for a split or crack.

Place the bottom back on (no screws yet) and add a little water...If it stays, then you got it.
If it leaks, lift the machine to eye level, drop the bottom out of the way, and add a little more water so you can watch for the source of the leak.

A broken tank means a new machine...but a bad hose can be replaced.

It leaks from the bottom of the coffee maker

The heating element in these is underneath the hot plate. The water gets to the heater through two short pieces of hose, and sometimes this hose leaks. Sometimes the connection between the hose and the heater leaks also.
If you are so inclined, you can take off the bottom plate and replace the hose pieces, or try to tighten the connections to the heater.
