    When I add water it leaks out of the back. I just replaced my last coffeemaker because of this problem. I've only had this cooffeemaker for approx. one month so I shouldn't need any replacement parts.

    I am proposing a class action suit against BUNN through this website. Bunn is not satisfying it's customers at all - even their repairs are shoddy at the cost of the consumer who still ends up with a defective coffeemaker.

Dennis Karlen supplies repair parts for this problem. You can find the various kits on his website

There are other suppliers who sell two silicon washers and a stainless steel washer in kits, but they tend to run considerably more.

The rubber washer would degrade quickly due to the heat. You may be able to get by with a new silicon washer. Check your local (not national chain but local francisee) hardware store.

The fill Tank is plastic and degrades over time. I bought a large rubber washer from local plumbing store to fill the void and seal the leak. The problem has returned and I need to replace the water fill tank completely. If possible??!!!. When to take the top of you will see a large screw with a hole in it, that is were the leaks occur.

    Heat will degrade the rubber or plastic washer. Silicon washers will work but are difficult to find. I went to the auto parts store and purchased material used to make head gaskets for autos. Head gaskets have to endure both high heat and water. I removed the three screws from the top cover and removed cover. Unscrew the fill nut from the fill tank and remove the tank. I used the placed the stainless steel washer on the head gasket material, traced around the outside and inside and carefull cut the head gasket material in the shape of the stainless washer. Reassembled and it works. After four or five hours (when tank gets hot again) you may need to tighten the nut a little (expansion) in the bottom of the fill tank. Head gasket washers have been in for over two years now without water leaks.


Time for a new one they erode over time

Bunn coffee maker leaks

VPR has a semi-sealed tank that keeps +1 pot of water heated and ready to brew. Pouring in a full pot of cold water will fill the top tray and allow a slow trickle of cold water into the top which forces hot water to over flow into the brew basket. This continues until all the cold water drains into the heater tank. So the brew is matched volume per volume. UNLESS the tank was empty or not filled prior to brewing. Follow the brewing instructions from Bunn (on line for *FREE* download at
* If it leaks (from the bottom) only when you pour in water. Then your pouring it too fast and over flowing the fill tray. slowdown, watch the level in the tray. do not fill past the lid.
* If it leaks just sitting (not brewing) then there is a hole in the tank. Call for service.
* If it leaks after filling the tray half way. then the top of the tank has a leak, loose, cracked, or missing gasket. There is quite a few gaskets on the lid. Call for service.
* Final; Leaks are always bad around electrical equip. Best to unplug and call for service to be safe.

Bunn coffee maker leaks water

There are 3 seals in your unit that could cause your problem. there is a silicon seal right under the pour-in tray, and two on the top of the tank. one of those is for the thermostat, the other is for the sprayhead tube. any of these could leak, causing water to come out the bottom of the brewer. One other thing that can cause this is a scale buildup between the pour-in tray and the tank.

Water leaking

The silicon seal inside the coffee maker tends to disintergrate. Bunn Inc. does not sell parts for the inside of the coffee makers, but a seal kit can be purchased through a small appliance repair center or repaired for a small cost. Kit is about $8.00 at most places.

Bunn Coffee maker

your problem is caused by the pour-in tray leaking where it mounts to the tank. There should be 2 screws under the pour-in lid, and a third toward the rear of the brewer. if you take them out & lift up carefully, you can see the pour-in tray. in the bottom of the tray, there is a bolt that mounts the tray to the tank. If you remove that, you can lift the pour-in tray out. Be careful, as these trays get brittle over time, and are prone to cracking.
