How Much coffee

School has a VPR 04276-0012 tucked away and not being used. All I need to know is how much coffee to put in the basket and we are in business... We have been brewing 10 cups at a time from a single coffee maker and I would like to see us use this nice BUNN.

It depends on the quality of our coffee. The stronger the brew the less you might need. My rule for good coffee is to put one big spoon of good coffee per cup, not too strong but not too watery.

My bunn vpr coffee maker is overflowing

Hello Kevin, My Name Is Mike,
Make sure you are using Bunn Vpr brand cupcake filters, not theshorter-sided generic variety. Also, inquire with Bunn Vpr about an optionalattachment for some models that will slow down the rate of water flow. Lastly,ensure that you are not over-filling the basket with grinds. There is an upperlimit to how much a coffeemaker will hold, and some people try to compensatefor weak coffee by adding too much. A lot of times, people now a days, also go to local coffee shop and have them grind there coffee fresh, and the coffee shop a lot of times will grind it to fine. And that would cause it to get clogged and overflow. Thanks So, much and hope this help. Also, If you ever want my help in the future, you can search for me as I have Market place ads I have created in all kinds of different appliance, automotive, electronic Categories. Thanks Mike

Coffee tastes funny. does machine need to be cleaned?

Yes, in this type of machine, put a little bit of vinegar and water in top and run a couple times through machine, with of course filter basket on, not with filter or coffee, and brew a couple times. Use 25percent to water ratio, do this twice then do it again, twice with only mineral water. Then make a pot normal, and let me know how coffee taste now. Thanks Mr Bean Man

How do I get the BUNN VPR coffee maker to brew a pot of coffee? There are two switches; one for the lower, and one for the upper warmer. Do I first have to fill the tank ALL the way before it brews? Please...

This brewer has a 2 1/2 pot reservoir. You should NOT plug in the brewer before the reservoir has been topped off. Pour 3 pots (one at a time, every minute or so) through the screen with a pot under the filter basket. Wait until the water flows from the basket and only then is it safe to plug in the brewer. The reservoir holds HOT water until you are ready to brew and then, by pouring in a pot of cold water, you will be able to brew.

Bunn VPR Series Coffee Maker will NOT dispense the water into the coffee pot?

This machine has a reservoir that holds about 2.5 pots and keeps them at brewing temperature. Therefore you should pour in 3 pots (with a pot in place under the filter basket) until water flows from the basket. Then, and ONLY then, it is safe to plug in the brewer. If you plug in the brewer BEFORE filling the reservoir you will burn up the heating element and will have to have it replaced.
After the initial filling and heat up (about 20 minutes) you are ready to pour through a pot of COLD water through and brew.

I cleaned out the unit with 50/50 vinegar and water. I cycles 4 more times with just water. Now the the coffee comes out all diluted (looks like tea).

Check the filter basket and the used coffee grounds, if they are not all saturated then it could be the sprayhead.

Coffee is in water is in nothing happens

You may not have enough water in the tank.
Follow these steps

1. With the coffee pot unplugged, fill your resevoir/tank until water begins pouring out of your sprayhead and brew basket.
2. Wait for the water to finish dripping then plug in your Bunn.
3. Let your Bunn warm up for at least 8 minutes.
4. Run a test cycle with clean water, remembering to use the water pitcher provided for this purpose, while leaving your empty pot on the burner beneath the brew basket.
5. If your cycle completed, and your coffee pot is filled to the desired level you are ready to make coffee.

Remember that these Bunn models have no water filter2_bing.gif installed, so, the cleaner the water the better tasting the coffee.

Filter basket overflows after cleaning Bunn VPR Coffee Maker

Some people also try adding fresh grounds to brewed grounds, resulting in an overflow. A restricter valve can be used, but a better solution is to simply pour in half the water at a time. This is what people who buy non Bunn filters do to stop overfills.
