Takes 30-45 minutes to brew coffee


we have a bunn coffee maker. rather expensive because the cheaper ones dont last long at all where we live. if my wife dont use the spring to clean the inside it gets a lime build up and slows down as you are saying. clean with the spring that should have came with it. and the spray head where it comes out to the pot. the small holes get plugged up also. and maybe run some vinegar through it and should work better. be sure to only use one filter as the thickness of filter also will slow it down. hope this solves your problem.

Mr coffee problems


You didn't indicate a specific model. So, I'm going to assume yours is relatively the same as my JWX27.

Let me start by clarifying what the red light indicates.

A solid red light indicates the cleaning cycle is in progress. A blinking red light indicates the coffeemaker is off, but due to be cleaned. When the coffeemaker is due to be cleaned, the red light will continue to blink while the coffeemaker is off until the cleaning cycle has been completed fully. The entire cleaning process takes about an hour and a half. And, it is not intuitive. So, here are my instructions.

With the coffeemaker off (with the red light blinking), pour four cups of pure white vinegar (no water added) into the reservoir. Don't short the amount. You'll need four cups to complete the cycle. Remove any filters, but leave the strainer basket in place. Tap the "select" button three times until the red light is on (and stays on, not blinking). The cleaning cycle now begins. It should take between 45 minutes and an hour to complete. Don't be concerned about the 30-minute long pause during the cycle when nothing happens. This is intentional and part of the cycle.

After the cleaning cycle has completed, get rid of the vinegar. Rinse out the strainer basket and the coffee pot. Run a full pot of clean water thru a regular brew cycle (with the pot and basket in place, of course). Then, dump the water, rinse the pot and basket again, and run another full pot of clean water thru a regular brew cycle. Dump that water too. And, you're done!

How do i clean my bunn air pot coffee brewer?


Run a pot of half water and half vinegar through the coffee pot and you may need to repeat this process a couple times to get all the calcium buildup cleaned out of the pot. Hope this helps.

This is commercial and the water drips instead of flowing,took 20-30 min to make coffee, how can i clean?


Have you tried to brew without coffee to see how long it takes? If yes then use a pair of channel locke to remove sprayhead and then use the deliming sprding that came with your bunn and clean the brew line then try again, if you still get the ame result, the brewer needs to be descaled.

HOW DO I RESET CLEAN LIGHT?


Unplug the unit for 30 minutes or longer - it should reset the coffeemaker and the clean light.

My bunn is too slow


Use the de-liming spring to clean the copper tube behind the spray head. Pour several pots of clear white vinegar through the unit to further remove lime and scale from the interior of your coffee maker. My Bunn is 24 years old, and the only replacement parts I've ever required are new carafes and the 4041 silicone washer repair kit.
