Bunn UPR warmer too hot

We inherited a Bunn coffee maker like the VPR model. The machine makes good coffee, but the warming plate actually boils the coffee after it is brewed. We switched the upper and lower warming plates with the same results.

What can I do about this?

Try connecting two elements in series. See if this keeps it hot enough. (One switch controlling both burners.) See if another brand of burner will fit in the hole. Check to see if the wattage is lower.

It is working all the time because the present humidity shows 70% and I set it at 55% in my not so large basement and it it connected to a hose, but no water comes out. When I opened it up I saw that some...

If the machine's compressor runs when you switch it on, then turn the machine on maximum and let it run for an hour or so. Then check the coils in the back with your hand. If they are not getting cold at all, then there is a significant problem with the refrigeration process in the unit. It may have developed a leak and allowed your refrigerant gas to escape, or there may be another internal problem with the compressor. Either way you would need to have it serviced by a fridge technician, or more likely just replaced with a whole new unit since both options can potentially cost about the same.

If the unit runs normally and the coils are getting cold, then make sure they are not totally icing up which will impede the unit's performance. If your dehumidifier is freezing up then that probably means the unit itself is actually working well. The humidity level in the room may be relatively low and you probably have the unit turned up too high for the conditions.

Try turning down the setting on the unit so that it cycles on and off every few hours and does not run continuously.

Also try using some warm soapy water to clean off any dust or oily residue from the cooling coils in the rear of the unit. Remember to also clean the air intake filter while you are at it.

The ambient temperature in the room may also be a bit too low, so you can try adding some heat to the room if necessary. A dehumidifier will not work properly if the ambient air temperature is too low. Basically, the warmer and more humid the room is, the better they work. Since warm air rises, you can even try lifting the unit higher up off the cold floor onto a bench or table where the air is warmer.

Sometimes the drain tube leading to the bucket is clogged. You can often clean this out by inserting the pointy end of a long heavy duty plastic zip tie and jiggling it around a bit. Do not insert anything metal or sharp into the tube or you may damage it.

All of a sudden my electric percolator coffee tastes very metallic. i have been using this pot for 20+ years!

Try running white vinegar through it for a cycle to clean it then run plain water. If that doesn't fix it, and nothing else has changed, try buying a gallon of water at the store and making coffee with that. Something may have changed with your water supply. Water quality is one of the most important aspects of coffee making. If none of this helps, have someone else taste it. If you've started a medication recently it could be altering your taste as well. Good luck.

How do I stop my hot dogs from looking bag coming from my steamer

not really discolor, does it looks like came out of water?
if so, that is because the steamer works. Steamer is cooking the food via water vapor and heat. For the dogs to looks like dog, you need to "dry out" the skin. pan fry, BBQ, grill, or any other metod you can to dry out the skin, then it should start to look like a dog.

Whirlpool Ice Maker is not freezing the water to make ice. The water is being pumped to the freezing tray, but no ice forms.

I assume your in an area where the temperature has been in the 70's? or more lately? In fact if your not freezing water in to Ice you have a freezer problem that's going to get worse before it gets better. I suspect that you have either a Air movement, defrost problem, Or a dirty condenser.

The quick check for air movement: main thing is make sure the controls are set in mid range, any extreme end of the controls may keep too much air from the refrigerator going into the freezer making it too warm.

Defrost elimination (Check the floor or back wall on a top or bottom freezer fridge or the back wall of a Side X Side look with a mirror if possible) A problem here will require more information as to how to proceed. What make is it do you have a volt ohm meeter...

Of these this one is more likely especially if you've had some warmer weather lately. Look under the frig and behind it under the panel that covers the compressor area. See anything that looks like dirt and lint covering a large portion of the coils under the box??? vacuum or blow it out with compressed air and replace the panel give it 24 hours and see if you have ice.
