The machine is a gravity brew, pour in another decanter of water until it drips from the sprayhead, when that happens the boiler is full, wait seven minutes then brew you coffee.

How does water heater function on bissell pro heat 1548 carpet cleaner work


It adds heat to the fresh water as it is pumped out on the floor. It will NOT heat cold water enough to clean the carpet. You have to put hot water in the clean water container.

I think I broke the element when I poured cold water into a heated kettle. Is there a fix for this?


No. Can't happen. Have a Bosch. Always forget to add water before turning on, never ever went wrong. Even if I poured cold water into it 10 sec later. Take it back where you bought it and ask for a refund, or for another one. These are built to withstand these impacts. That's what I'd do for sure.

Hot water will not come down thru coffee


Your pour over coffee brewer has a reservoir that holds more than a pot of water. First thing you need to do is turn off the machine. Then put the empty coffee pot on the burner. Then take another container and fill it with fresh cold water and pour it slowly into the coffee maker until it starts to come out into the coffee pot. Stop pouring in water.

Now turn the machine on and let it heat up. Now you can brew normally. The reservoir has to be filled before you turn it on or you will end up eventually burning up the heating element.

No pot or instructions, how much water do you put in the coffee pot?Need a replacement pot for vp17 series. thank you


You should be able to pick up a replacement/new pot at your nearest Restaurant Supply store. Make sure you get a 64 oz./ 1/2 gallon pot.
Before plugging in your brewer, unscrew the sprayhead located just above where the filter basket sits and replace the basket, pour 3 pots of cold water through the opening on the top if the brewer is empty. This brewer has a reservoir that holds about 2 1/2 pots of water at brewing temperature when heated. Make sure you put an empty pot under the filter basket after pouring in the water. Water will flow from the brew basket when the reservoir has reached its capacity. Once water flows you can then plug in and energize your brewer and replace the sprayhead. It will take about 15 to 20 minutes for the brewer to reach brew temp, you will hear the heating stop. Put an empty filter and a dose of coffee (I recommend starting with a heaping measuring cup of drip ground coffee) into the filter basket, lightly shake it level, replace the basket and pour through 1 full pot of COLD water in the top. For best results pour the brewed coffee into a pre-heated thermal server if you plan on holding the coffee for more than 10 minutes or so.
Enjoy!

Why is our coffee maker brewing only half a carafe after filling with a whole carafe of water?


There is different reasons one being that it is a gravity/syphon system. Meaning as you pour cold water into the tank it forces the hot water up through a tube. What you may need to is simply pour water in until you see the water start to trickle out of the sprayhead that will let you know the tank is full. Like any container the water heat will eventually start to disapate. Once you have filled it to where you can see the water trickle out of the sprayhead allow a d\few minutes for the heater to heat up to temp again. Then you should be able to pour in a FULL carafe and get the results you are looking for. Or you could always look on bunnomatic's website for one that hooks up to water line and eliminates the need to pour any water in. www.midstatebeverage.com

I have a Bunn VPR, it brews fine for a couple pots


Try running a quarter-pot 50/50 solution of white vinegar and cold water through to clean out calcium deposits in the pump system. Use a clean filter to catch the pumped debris. When pumped through, let cool somewhat, and reuse the cold mixture again twice more. Pour out the vinegar solution and run several cold water loads through to wash out the taste. Hope this helps!

Put wrong soap in the SmatDispense container...


If you run it as is you will have a kitchen full of soapy water.
Take a pot or pan. Fill it with COLD water. Our it into the DW. Fillit to the regular water level, about 1 inch below the bottom rim.
Set the DW to a pump out setting and drain it.
You will have to repeat this several times to clear the soap out.
COLD water pump out. Cold water pump out etc.
Do not use HOT water. You will get instant suds and lots of them.

Wont drain


The wrong type detergent was put in the washer.
Set it to pump out. Then pour in cold water and pump out again. Do this over and over until the suds are gone.
Cold water helps kill the sudsing and dilutes it so it will pump.
Make sure you use dishwasher detergent next time.
