Re: Bunn VPR Coffee Maker

I own a bunn and my brother's business owns 2 of these. The rule of thumb as he was told by the salesman is 2 oz of coffee grinds per 48 oz of water.

I have a VPR pourover Bunn coffee maker. I've had it many years with no problems. The cord is getting hot and popped the circuit breaker.

Most the time the plug goes bad.This is a cheap molded plug.You can pick up a new plug at the hardware store.Pick up a 120 volt standard 15 amp plug.

What is the best way to remove lime scale and other mineral build up from a Bunn VPR coffee maker? Water flow has been reduced to a trickle even though we used filtered water.

I always use CLR to clean my coffee maker. You don't need much more than 1/4 cup and mix with 8 cups of water and brew it like you would make a pot of coffee, then dump it out and run 2-3 more pots of just water, that should work fine. Also, run vinegar thru the machine once in awhile to help keep it clean

Poured water into a Bunn Vpr coffee maker, the coffe was cold. Why did this happen?

Possible the hi-limit turned off the heater, the thermostat is not working or the elements are damaged, or the inline thermal fuse is damaged.

BUNN VPR Overheating

Thermostat is either bad or your heating element is bad. Check both and also check for calcium and lime build up

Warming tray too hot

You can either replace the warming element with a new one, or some people put 3 or 4 pennies on the top of the warmer tray. Don't laugh- this really does work!
