    Actually the manufacturer, clarksol, has the kpm27c for $15. It should be compatible.

Churchs bunn. Vps 04275-0013 started heating water till steam comes out fill hole. Causing water to drip everywhere....thinking a thermostate is not opening causing steam


Over Boiling or constant heating of tank water is an indication of a shorted thermostat (or out of calibration). Call your vendor for service. (especially if this equipment is on loan.)
*** the following is for information only. Repairs should be performed by a qualified Bunn Tech. ***
* VPR's and similar machines REQUIRE a pre-fill and heating period prior to brewing. This means it's sitting on a level table and filled with water until water sprays from the brew head. At this point the unit is plugged in and the heater is turned on (there may be some water discharge from brew head as the water expands). Ready light will come on in about 15 mins.
* To Brew; Place coffee grounds in filter, place in funnel and brew head, clean empty decanter under funnel, slowly pour one full decanter of water (cold or hot) into brew tray. Do not overflow tray. Allow water level to sink before adding more water. Only fill with one pot as an equal amount will come out the brew head and funnel.
* Make sure the decanters are all the same size. do not mix a 12 cup pot with a 10 cup pot. One will over fill and the other will under fill. Make sure they match (in cup volume) FYI; Thermo Air pump pots are usually bigger than one pot. Typical filling only to 3/4th of the container. (I think most are in 2.5 to 3 liter sizes)
* If your not getting a full pot then the brewer was partially empty. The second brew (if done within the next hour) should come out full.
* If your still not getting a full pot then the water is leaking or is boiling off. Does it always steam from the top? Thermostat is shorted. Unplug the brewer and call vendor for service.
* Final; Follow the Bunn set up and care instructions (manuals from Bunn.com for down loading. *FREE*)
Aloha, ukeboy57

PS; There is a slight chance that your thermostat is set too high. There is a dial on the thermostat that can be turned counter clockwise to lower the temperature of the brewing water. Water should be about 190-205 F for coffee. Tea drinkers want 210 F which is too close to boiling point of water. If your in the mountains (+2000 feet) then the boiling temp will lower. Was it possible the brewer came from a low (sea level) location and moved to higher altitude? Then the setting is off and must be set lower (a fine adjustment). But note that if your on the top of a high mountain (like Haleakala, Hawaii) then it has to be set a lot lower and you will only get luke warm brews at 9,000 feet!. Adjust the knob clockwise to get it to boil. Then back it off counter-clockwise a bit till it stops boiling. Make another brew to check if the reheat comes to a boil but stops after a minute or so. It should not boil on longer than 2-3 mins. Back it off a bit more if it does. Brew again to check. If none of this works then you will need to replace the thermostat. If your at a really HIGH altitude location, then you will need a specially adapted high altitude brewer. Call your coffee vendor for advice.

Our machine is plumbed into the water directly. When we brew a pot of coffee it never brews a full pot. any thoughts on what the problem is?


You should call your vendor for service on any commercial brewer. (Especially if it's on loan from them)
*** the following is for information only as all repairs should be performed by a qualified tech.***

Most commercial (plumb in water line) has a start switch activates the timer (analog or digital) board which turns on the water feed to the brew tank. This forces previously heated water out and sprayed over the ground coffee in the brew funnel. Coffee then drips into the decanter. Under filling is caused by un-calibrated timer or interment timing.
* The timer comes in two types; Dial (old) and Digital. If it's the dial then a simple turn of the dial will make less or more water flow to decanter. You MUST re-brew (no coffee, but use funnel) into the decanter or pot that you plan to use. Don't mix up different size pots as the timer is only good for 1 setting. Turn dial and brew once to check. Keep checking with a brew after each adjustment. Do a final brew just to be sure.
* The digital timer is a bit more complicated to adjust. Sorry, too many switches and options to go into it here. Check your MFR online for a manual (usually a FREE download). Several methods may be listed.
* If it does not adjust or won't keep the set time then. Replace the timer. Digital timers tend to be sensitive to electrical storms. Analog timers have a dial and are more tolerant of electrical surges.
* Check the water fill solenoid. Should be a definite click when activated. Water filling sound should be very clear.
* No water flow then check the water supply line if it's on.
* Final; this brewer needs service. Call your coffee vendor for advice.

P.S., Older timers usually are reliable. It may have been set for a larger decanter or pump pot. The pump pots come in 2.5L and 3L for the big boys. Decanters are 10 cup and standard 12 cup. Check your office as there may be an unused pump pot or small decanter in a cupboard that got put away for making "too little" coffee. Try a brew in this smaller pot. Any change in pot size requires an adjustment to the timer. This is the only way to get "Less" or "More" out of the brewer. (Yes, if you have a "Pour Over" function for one time special brews. Check the manual for this option.)

CWTF15 WILL NOT STOP WATER FLOW WHEN POT IS MADE.


The coffee dispensing valve is stuck open. It may be due to Calcium deposits.
Descale the machine or manually clean the dispensing valve and the diffuser disc that unscrews to be removed. This diffuser is visible just above the coffee pot.

*** the following is for information only as all repairs should be performed by a qualified tech.***
* Since no brand or model given. I suspect this is a commercial coffee brewer as it probably has a plumbed in water line. Bloomfield, Curtis, and Bunn are the most common. I'm using Bunn CWTF for this example but it covers most other brands too.

This forces previously heated water out and sprayed over the ground coffee in the brew funnel. Coffee then drips into the decanter. Under filling is caused by un-calibrated timer or interment timing.

Descaling won't brew


Desacle now or it won't reset to factory settings.

I have a Bunn CWTF15. Water does not fill the coffee pot full anymore. Is there a float that needs to be adjusted? Would descaling help this problem? Thank you.


If u haven't cleaned it out using 3/4 vinegar to 1/4 water, some times this will happen. after running this thru ur coffee maker, (u won't believe the junk that comes out), then run full pots of water to rinse out (2x's). This should help it perform better.

Steam comes from wand when set to dispense water.


Check the connection to the boiler from the pump, there is no water going to the boiler. Try this test, remove the brew unit you will see a white plastic valve behind it, carefully lift the small lever on the valve(HOT WATER), if water sprays, then the problen is at the brew unit, if no water then the boiler inlet or outlet is clogged.
