Hello, you have a problem with the inlet valve or timer. hit the brew button and then once the water starts running through the brew cone pull the plug, if after a couple of minutes the brew stops your problem is going to be with the timer (you should replace it) if the brew does not stop at all then you have a problem with the inlet valve (it has a piece of calcium stuck in the valve) you should replace the valve kit in this instance. You can buy parts from either bunn or a company called holiday house in cali. if you have any further questions please feel free to comment again. Good Luck!! Mike

Bunn CW Coffee Brewer not brewing enough coffee - amount is half


Have you cleaned lately, put in an empty filter and fill with cold water with a tablespoon of white/clear vinegar. Run the brew cycle, empty pot and while still worm fill with cold water again with out vinegar. Than check filter to see how much hard water chunks are in the filter. Repeat with and without vinegar tell filter is clean. One question though is there a lot of steam coming out of the top during the brewing cycle if so inside there is a tube that may be cracked, broken or came loose, have to look inside. requires opening or disassembling unit to check. REMEMBER when taking apart UNPLUG unit first.

Sounds like your timer part #32400.0002.This is the new type timer which replaces the dial timer.Another thing is does this happen when you turn on the on/off switch? I would also check your liquid level probe in top of tank.Always a possibility bad liquid level board.If it only does this when you push the brew button the timer is bad.

My bunn vlpf coffee maker the water tank is overheating to the point of steam is spewing fro the air release tube... I'm thinking thermostat ?


You are correct.Also check the tank for lime.By unplugging and removing top of machine (2) screws and remove fill basin.You can then remove your t-stat probe to check.If it is lime up you can crack off the lime and reinstall it in the tank.If limed up I would suggest de-liming.T-stat part# 4314.0001.

We have a 2 month old bunn coffee maker. worked fine now coffee is taking 10 minutes to brew


Sounds like calcium build up, You need to descale the machine.

If you look at the grounds on the basket, After the brew cycle is over there is like a hole in the center of the grounds. This happens when there is calcium build up in the tank, tube and or spray head. And takes forever for the brew cycle to end.

Follow the instruction on your manual to descale the brewer.

THe most likely answer is that the tube that leads to the sprayhead is clogged with lime. You will need to remove the spray head wich is located above the brew basket and make sure the holes are not clogged with lime. Use a wire brush to clear them. In the field I would use a deliming spring but you may need to go to a lowes or home depot to find a tool you can use to clear the tube wich is what the spray head screws onto or just goole deliming spring and try to order one off line. It is a long flecible very tightly wound dpring about 14 inches in length or so. www.midstaebeverage.com

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!

This sounds like normal operation of this type of unit.

Look at the brew funnel. is coffee coming out of it all the time during the brew cycle?

If so, then what you are hearing is the water supply solenoid cycling.

There is a timer located in the top of the machine. Take off the two screw and turn the timer down a little bit.
