Wo'nt boil water

Top burners cycling on and off ***** getting hot enough to boil water.

    Are all the burners cycling on and off, or is it just one? The reason I ask is that it is normal for the burners to cycle depending on the temperature selection. Low settings will cause the burners to stay on for a shorter duration, as less heat is needed. Higher temperature settings will cause the burners to stay on for a longer duration. If you turn the burners on with nothing on the stove they tend to cycle on and off because there is no heat transfer taking place. The surface elements on electric ranges are controlled by an infinite switch behind each control **** and a thermostat on each element. They typically work independently of each other. Could you please let me know more info?

Why do burners not get hot? After rehooking to electrical power, due to a remodel, the burners don't seem to heat up as hot as they used to. Cant boil water on any of the 4 burners.


Could be not enough voltage on your 220.lines ( one wire lose or a bad breaker. or the wires are hooked up wrung causing it to try to operate on 110 instead of 220

This could be a problem with the gas regulator, gas supply pressure or the burners need to be cleaned. Here are the cleaning instructions for the burners. If you are still having problems with the burners I would recommend having the gas pressure & regulator checked.

Hello My gemini top burners cycle on and off,


The burners are designed to cycle on and off, it is technology that helps to keep from burning food. If you are using the correct pan to burner size ratio and high setting on your burner, the water should boil in the normal time. Don't watch the pot (just kidding)

Hello, yes you are correct, it's due to the water boiling in the tank. take 2 screws out of the top panel, just under this panel you will find the thermostat (it's ajustable) turn the temp down on the thermostat, if this does not solve the problem your thermostat may be bad and you will have to replace it. You can purchase new parts from either bunn direct or from holiday house in california. if you have any additional questions please feel free to comment again. Good Luck! Mike

The coffee is so hot it boils


Hello. If this is a 5 burner unit, only one is supposed to get really hot, the top right one, is for tea/water. Otherwise no other burners should get "red hot", ever. Either the controls have a problem, which is unlikely for them to all suddenly go bad, or something has shorted out, causing the current to find a path through ground or neutral. I would have a servicer check the unit. One can be found in the phone book under restaurant repair companies, or you can go to www.bunnomatic.com, and look up a local authorized servicer close to you.

Hope that helped, and thank you.

Are you leaving the machine plugged in all of the time? If not, you need to. The machine takes approximately 10 minutes to get to full temperature the first time then the water should stay hot from then on. Or it could be that you just need to turn up the thermostat. No, the water won't get hotter sitting on the burner and the coffee won't taste as good if the water you are brewing with isn't hot enough.

To get to the thermostat, unplug the machine and take the two screws on the top lid off. You should see a box that has a knob or a T sticking out of it. Turn it up a little bit, put the lid back on and let the heat up for a little while (10 - 15 minutes). Try brewing with just plain water. If it still isn't hot enough, repeat the steps above. Make sure you don't turn up the thermostat so much that the water boils.

Will burner get too hot


Hello Pinewood7. The issue here is concern from what you have heard. Don't worry! All you are doing is boiling water. The system will allow constant heat for what you are doing. Use this as a test. Put your largest pot on the top full of water and set on high. Attach your thermometer to the side and see what happens. I know several people who use these tops for canning with excellent results. My sister in law has had yours for years and not an issue with jams. Hope this helps with your concerns.

you need to purge the air out of the "hot" side after placing the bottle on top. If not enough water is inside the chamber the water will boil.

Electric Oven not getting hot enough


Sir, I think the top oelement is for broiling ONLY. It should not turn on when baking. The clicking may be the oven heating up.
How far apart were the oven temp instrument and the digital?
Don't expect them to match...they are inaccurate.

1. Heat water until it boils. Place digital therm in boiling water until it comes up to 212deg. If it is not at 212 in boiling water, record the error.(this gives a rough calibration to the digital)
2 Turn on oven, set to 350 deg, place digital therm on rack. Wait until oven reaches 350 (on stove) and read the digital. Note the difference between the two
