Either your fill tank is clogged, or your washer seal is cracked. You will need to remove the top of your Bunn to access this area. In the resevoir you will see a large nut with a drain hole. First try clearing the hole with a tooth pick and pour water in the basin. If it flows you have good drainage. Now, with the top still removed, pour water in the basin while checking for leaks. If a leak is present you should remove your drain nut and inspect the clear white looking washer on the underside. If it is cracked you can replace it with a gasket from Bunn. If you are tight on time and cash, a non rubber heat proof water hose gasket will suffice until yours arrives from Bunn. Replace and re-tighten the basin and drain nut (do not over tighten) .

I have a 98 jetta glx vr6, every time i drive it the car will over heat. i know that the fan works and turns on and there is no leaks. so i know that there is air in the radiator system. How i bleed or...

Hi. It souds to me like you might have to replce the thermostat in the water pump. If you think there is air in the system, try opening the water resevoir bottle and let the car idle for about 5 minutes, topping up the water as the air voids escape through the return pipe. I doubt that there could be air in the system, as the pump would automaticaly push the air out into the resevoir bottle. Worth a try. Hope this helps

2001 kia sportage is over heating but has no leaks. the radiator has been flushed but is very rusty inside. The water is rusty inside the radiator. We have checked the resevoir, it is fine. the water...

Rusty is from running a bad or no mix of coolant. (PH level is off) You may have a water pump that has corroded impellers, and can't move the coolant as well any more. I would start by making sure to flush the engine block again, and make sure you flush water through every possible hose, and where you can get at it.

My 10 cup Bunn coffee maker leaks from the top of the water resevoir, from the right top side and from the back top. It looses aprox. 2 cups of water onto my counter while brewing. What has happened to...

I have the same problem and I took the coffee maker apart to find out why. It has to do with a leak on a fitting. On mine I found that the fitting where the hole in the black plastic that the water flows through to get into the stainless steel tank needed to be repaired with some silicone sealant to fix the leak. Still making some coffee!

Water leaks out of holes up under resevoir.

Use a Torx T-9 tamper resistant screwdriver to remove the screws on the bottom of the coffee maker.

Your plastic tube has probably come loose or is leaking. Carefully re seat the plastic tube over the metal tube using the metal spring compression clamp.
