Check the power cord for damage, and repair anything you find.

If confident enough, open the unit up and inspect all the internal wiring - check for chafed wires and for terminals that have come undone or that are touching anything they aren't obviously meant to.

Check the unit hasn't got wet inside - mop dry then leave to dry out properly in warm air for a couple of days if it has.

If that doesn't throw up anything obvious, then you're probably looking at insulation breakdown of some component (my money would usually be on the element). For a unit like this, I doubt it's economic to start buting spare parts, so you're probably better off buying a new coffee maker.

Good luck

It means there is a short in your coffee maker. The breaker trips to prevent damage to wiring in your house.

maybe water leaked into the electrical parts. I think you are better off buying a new one.

My Bunn keeps blowing breakers in my home...just started.


This is an indication that there is an electrical problem with your brewer. Please locate the model and date code on the bottom of the brewer and contact customer service. The machine has a 3 year warranty. If it is 3 years old or less, it will be replaced at no cost. If it is over 3 years old, it will be replaced at a reduced cost.

Keeps tripping circuit breakers bunn NHb


Hello

Coffee makers have a heating unit in them which draw a lot of current. If it is on the same circuit as refrigerator, toaster and other it will trip the breaker. Also, some breakers are more sensitive than others. Have an electrician run a separate circuit for the coffee maker outlet. Try running it in the dining room outlet, which I hope is separate from the kitchen outlets. Is the house old? Older homes have a lot of mixed up wiring.

Bunn coffee maker trips the breaker


It is possible that you have a short in your limit thermostat, but most likely this is caused by small holes in your main heating element. these units start to split length ways down the element, causing a short to ground through the water. These elements are readily available at your local Bunn repair shop.

Bt 10b coffee maker


You can send me your thermostat or I will send you my reservoir. There is no sense in throwing out 2 otherwise good coffee makers and Bunn will NOT supply replacement parts.
