Question about Bunn BT10B Coffee Maker

9 Answers

Schematic I need a wiring schematic for the Bunn Thermofresh (BT series ?). I took it apart and marked the wires, but a couple of pieces of the tape I used slid off, and I'm fairly sure how to rewire it, but I'd like to be totally sure ! Thanks.

    I have photos of the unit wiring and can answer any further questions; please note, this unit has no heading pad for the pot.
    There is a white wire (small round plastic insulators used) coming from one of the elements of the water heating unit, a black wire coming from the other along with a brown stripped wire coming from a slightly larger diameter plastic insulator that surrounds the one that the black wire comes from. There's a black wire coming from the thermostat (I assume it's the thermostat) and a blue wire that's grounded. There are 2 white wires that come up from the water heating cylinder (I assume to keep the water hot [rated 34W,120V]). The wires coming up from the switch are 1 white wire, 1 brown stripped wire, and a green ground wire.
    Any further details needed, please let me know. Surely there's a diagram for this unit somewhere !! I can almost work out the way it needs to be connected, but I'd rather be 100% sure than throw a breaker and ruin a good coffee maker.
    Thanks.

  • Billy Dunshie Feb 28, 2008

    No, that's not the service manual, that's for a VP series unit which has a warming pad for the pot and isn't like the BT series. I already have this digram, that's why I said I can almost figure out how the unit should be wired, but I'm not 100% certain.

  • Billy Dunshie Feb 28, 2008

    No, right on the bottom of the unit it says BT10-B; I downloaded the user manual for the coffee maker, which was:
    38864.0000_BTX_U_C_English.pdf .
    The diagrams listed are close, but that's not it.

  • Billy Dunshie Feb 28, 2008

    No webcam but photos. The unit also says Thermofresh on the front.

  • Billy Dunshie Feb 28, 2008

    The diagrams are close but not getting it.
    I searched on the Bunn site listed given in the link, but can only find the user manual, not schematics.
    And the model is BT10-B.

  • Billy Dunshie Feb 28, 2008

    Thanks guys, I really appreciate it.
    I'd almost have to call Bunn or find someone with the same unit that would be willing to pull the top.
    I'll post a follow-up when the unit's working and back together.

  • Billy Dunshie Feb 28, 2008

    No offense intended. Extremely helpful, but I've pulled up all this info already. I'm ready to just draw the diagram myself and get the thing back together. 'Had to make coffee in a pot this am :)!!
    Thanks again, you all have been very, very helpful !!! All of you !

  • Billy Dunshie Feb 28, 2008


    There is the white wire that goes to the element, black and brown come out from a thermistor(?) on top, and a black comes from the level indicator(?) with a blue grounded. 2 whites come from the side of the water tank that normally keep the water hot.
    Thanks.

  • Billy Dunshie Feb 28, 2008

    There appears to be no connection that goes to the other terminal, and it looks as though there never was a connection here; I thought possibly one end of the element was grounded, but my meter doesn't indicate this.
    Many of the schematics are coming very close, but not quite.
    I'm working right now trying to diagram this thing out, 'just haven't quite got it, because I'm not sure what I call a water level indicator really is, but what else would it be ? The thermistor controls the temp, so I'm not sure about it.

  • Billy Dunshie Feb 29, 2008

    I think that the round unit that protrudes into the tank is the limit switch; why would you need anything to indicate water level (well, to indicate a dry tank, but I don't think that's it) on a coffee maker such as this one ?
    So, it looks as though a hot wire from the switch would hit the brown wire to the thermistor and also on of the whites to the lower heater, the white to the element would tie into the black from the thermistor, and now I'm stumped. The other end of the element doesn't indicate that there was ever anything there; if I take the white plastic from the element post that the white wire's on, there's a clear plastic covering over that, so it looks like the element is tied in some other way or I really pulled a silly stunt ! It seems it would work fine if the black from the limit switch went to the terminal that looks as though nothing was ever there, because then, with the blue from the switch grounded, we'd have a complete circuit that looks half-way right.
    Thanks for all the help. I really hope you all don't give up on me !!!

  • Billy Dunshie Feb 29, 2008

    BTW, this is a 120V unit.

  • Billy Dunshie Feb 29, 2008


    What is this ? Not sure if it's a limit switch or what. I can't get any kind of reaction from
    it; it's in a closed state right now. I'm not sure if it's an overlimit switch, but I didn't want to get it too hot in case it's not; water seems to have no effect on it either.
    Thanks for the time and effort. I have all of the manuals that have been listed, but really appreciate the help. If I knew what this was, it would help a great deal; the end with the
    connector goes to ground, the black wire went ??

  • Billy Dunshie Feb 29, 2008

    I think you all think I'm a freeloader just trying to get free help.
    I'm not, but who do I pay ? And I wouldn't mind paying more than one person, but whoever it was that posted the link to the
    VPR models definitely came very close.
    If you can decide among yourselves, or if the mod needs to do it, I'll be glad to deposit more money in PayPal and pay you all. You've been extremely helpful, and I realize I haven't been that clear and concise.
    Thank guys and girls :)!!!

  • Billy Dunshie Feb 29, 2008

    That's not really the correct circuit, there's no varistor in it, and I still don't know what the little unit I posted the last picture of is, if it's a limit switch or has something to do with water level?. I'll keep working on it, thanks to all of you who posted and helped, it's really appreciated, and I'd have paid you all if I had that kind of money; I just paid the last person who posted, because they seemed to persist and really tried to help.
    Thanks !!

Hiya falcon18!

Unfortunately, the service manual or schematic you seek does not appear to be available online - a common occurance for small appliances. In my opinion, your best bet would be to give Bunn a call at 800-352-2866 (Business Hours apply) and see if they can take care of ya.

Good luck!

Water leaking from my Bunn ThermoFresh


if it is under warranty contact bunn directly , if not throw it away . they are not fixable

Feb 12, 2014 | Bunn BTX-B ThermoFresh 10-Cup Home Thermal...

2 Answers

My Bunn Thermofresh quit heating the water.


The Bun BTX-B has a pair of thermal fuses located on top of the water heater storage unit. If the pot is left without use for a week or so, the thermal fuses will blow if the top of the tank gets too hot (about 150 degrees Fahrenheit) due to the evaporation of water in the storage tank. The operating directions state clearly that if the unit is not going to be used for a few days to turn off the pot. These are there to prevent a fire in case someone does not follow the direction. This is the "MOST" common form of electrical failure in these pots.

To access the thermal fuse
1. Unplug the pot and drain pot by inverting the pot in an empty sink.
2. Remove the two Phillips screws located under the water fill flipper door.
3. Gently insert a small flat blade screw driver into the front top of the lid and remove top cover.
4. Remove the 4 screws inside the water routing tank and remove routing tank simply by lifting off.
5. The thermal fuse is mounted to the top of the tank under a clip and is easily slid out from under the clip. There is a brown wire (goes to power cord neutral) and a black wire (goes into tank disk access hole). Simply measure with a multimeter at lowest ohm setting, the meter should read continuity between the black and brown wires, if it reads an open circuit, the part is bad.

A replacement thermal fuze assembly kit is available off e-bay for about $10. You can buy individual thermal fuzes and replace one of the two that is bad for about $3, but I recommend the kit for most consumers as it comes with wire crimps already mounted and far easier for the average person to simply install. Repair takes about 5-10 minutes.

BT-10-B Bunn Thermofresh that will not heat or fill pot


Lots of times minerals clooect on the heating element and inside the heating chamber. The easiest thing to try is to put white vinegar into the filler, displacing some of the water into the pot. Leave this to soak for about an hour, then flush with several pots of water until the vinegar smell cannot be detected in the water. Make sure that the switch on the side is "ON". You may have an indicator light. The switch on the upper front is for the warmer. The reason you only got a partial pot of water is that the reservoir wasn't completely full. Once you have filled it completely, you should fet a full pot out for every full pot in. If all of the above gives you no relief, you may need to test the heating element for voltage and continuity. If it tests 'open', you will need to replace it.
Good luck, --W/D--
