Sounds like the heater coil is burned out. Might be time to replace the coffee maker.

I've had this same problem through three of these machines now. I replaced them because I love them. But they have stopped making them. One time Bodum told me cheaper to replace than fix, and he didn't know why. One thing i read spoke of the heater unit cracking and leaking .. maybe shorting out element?..i don't know..but the stopping heating thing is same thing happened to me over and over..but usually after very long time..so i got money's worth, but it truly disappoints me they stopping making them..i have a call in to ask why?

No pot or instructions, how much water do you put in the coffee pot?Need a replacement pot for vp17 series. thank you


You should be able to pick up a replacement/new pot at your nearest Restaurant Supply store. Make sure you get a 64 oz./ 1/2 gallon pot.
Before plugging in your brewer, unscrew the sprayhead located just above where the filter basket sits and replace the basket, pour 3 pots of cold water through the opening on the top if the brewer is empty. This brewer has a reservoir that holds about 2 1/2 pots of water at brewing temperature when heated. Make sure you put an empty pot under the filter basket after pouring in the water. Water will flow from the brew basket when the reservoir has reached its capacity. Once water flows you can then plug in and energize your brewer and replace the sprayhead. It will take about 15 to 20 minutes for the brewer to reach brew temp, you will hear the heating stop. Put an empty filter and a dose of coffee (I recommend starting with a heaping measuring cup of drip ground coffee) into the filter basket, lightly shake it level, replace the basket and pour through 1 full pot of COLD water in the top. For best results pour the brewed coffee into a pre-heated thermal server if you plan on holding the coffee for more than 10 minutes or so.
Enjoy!

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.

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.

How to use coffee maker


This type of coffee maker is made to keep hot water always ready to make another pot.
Pour water in ( at least 4 cups)then turn it on with the pot installed to catch the water. It takes a few minutes to get it hot . You might hear it heating. I can with mine.OK after the heating sound goes away put some coffee in the filter and in stall the filter.Now, fill the pot again (at least 4 cups) and pour the water in and put the pot ready to catch the coffee.It makes the coffee fast because it already heated the water from the first time you poured it in.When finished with the coffee just turn off the burner only.These types are made to stay on 24 hours a day.
I just turn mine off and let it heat up the water in the morning.

BT-10-B Bunn Thermofresh that will not heat or fill pot


Lots of times minerals clooect on the heating element and inside the heating chamber. The easiest thing to try is to put white vinegar into the filler, displacing some of the water into the pot. Leave this to soak for about an hour, then flush with several pots of water until the vinegar smell cannot be detected in the water. Make sure that the switch on the side is "ON". You may have an indicator light. The switch on the upper front is for the warmer. The reason you only got a partial pot of water is that the reservoir wasn't completely full. Once you have filled it completely, you should fet a full pot out for every full pot in. If all of the above gives you no relief, you may need to test the heating element for voltage and continuity. If it tests 'open', you will need to replace it.
Good luck, --W/D--

Water wont come out of my bunn coffee maker


The first pot of water you put in the coffee maker just fills the water tank which is then heated up , once it gets to temperature you then pour second pot of water this pushes the hot water out of the tank through the coffee grounds into the waiting pot. This way you can make coffee faster than a regular coffee maker.

3-Pot coffee Maker instructions


The first time you use the machine you need to make sure it is full of water - before you plug it in and turn it on. Put an empty coffee pot under the brew basket and fill another empty pot with clean cold water.

Pour the water into the coffee maker. If water comes out then you can plug it in and turn it on. The water heating tank holds about 2-1/2 pots of water so if your machine is empty you will need to keep adding water before you turn it on otherwise you may burn up the heating element.

After the green light comes on - indicating that the tank is hot you can brew a pot of coffee. This machine is meant to be left on all of the time so it is always ready to brew. If you choose to turn it off when not in use, you will need to give it about 10 minutes to fully heat up the water before you brew.

Water is not heating


It is probily the thermal switch between hot wire and element. Check to see if you are getting power through this switch.
