Question about Bunn RL Coffee Maker

2 Answers

I have a Bunn coffee maker (Model NHB code date154704) that trips the ground fault breaker the second you plug it in. It worked fine yesterday, but last night my wife put half water and half vinegar in it to clean it and forgot to empty it until this morning. I suspect the acid from the vinegar ate up the heating element, but I'm not sure. Any thoughts?

The water doesn't come into direct contact with the heating element. The only way to know the cause of the problem is to use a multimeter and test the circuitry.

Keeps tripping circuit breakers bunn NHb


Coffee makers have a heating unit in them which draw a lot of current. If it is on the same circuit as refrigerator, toaster and other it will trip the breaker. Also, some breakers are more sensitive than others. Have an electrician run a separate circuit for the coffee maker outlet. Try running it in the dining room outlet, which I hope is separate from the kitchen outlets. Is the house old? Older homes have a lot of mixed up wiring.

Using fine grind coffee in my Bunn Coffee maker is causing overflow grounds into my decanter. My Bunn manual says that I can receive a "Flow restrictor sprayhead" free of charge. How do I go...

Phone Bunn Directly, and ask for their warranty department. In canada, you can call 1-800-263-2256. In other countries, go to for the phone number closest to you.
