Question about Bunn NHB Coffee Maker

1 Answer

I did the initialization as per the directions and the water was hot. When I make the coffee, the warmer button will not come on and the coffee is cold. I turned on the vacation button for 15 minutes and it was hot again and the warmer button automatically came on. Again when I made the coffee it was cold and the warmer button would not light up.

Sounds like something is miswired from the factory. Note that the tank heater switch on most home brewer models also acts as the "master" power switch. If the tank heater switch is not on, the warmer switch will not work, either - this is normal. Under normal conditions, the tank heater (or vacation switch) should always remain on, except if you are leaving on vacation.

Hi all. In desperate need of help. I have a La Cimbali M29 Select. I am unable to get hot water from the hot water tap and when the machine dispenses a shot of coffee, I have to turn the machine of...


From your description it sound that the button strip need to be replaced. All the buttons of the coffees and also for hot water are all set in one unit the button strip. This like a membrane and is located under the buttons. This is frequent problem with m29 select since the connector of the button strip it is exposed under the cup warmer area and is very easy to absorb the humidity from steam escape inside the machine and when one short circuit it happens then since the whole strip is one unit it will mull faction as you described.

I have a bunn coffee maker that when it brews the first pot is hot after that the next one is not. It is the coffee maker that has two warmers on top. i didnt know if would be the heating element or...


While this brewer does have a reservoir that keeps a couple of pots worth of water hot for brewing you can get a cooler second pot if you brew directly after. You should hear the brewer heating up after brewing. Try waiting until it is back to temperature before re-brewing. If that heating takes more than a few (3-4) minutes then you probably have a problem with the heating element and the water is only being heated by the "keep warm" heater.

The heater plate on cuisinart cbc-1600 coffee maker does not stay on after brewing cycle to keep coffee hot. is this normal operation?


The CBC-1600 comes with a thermal carafe. therefore, it doesn't rely on a heater plate to keep the coffee warm.

Coffee not hot enough Is there a way to modify the factory settings to make coffee/milk warmer for the Nespresso Latissima machine?


Before placing first coffee capsule in the machine, run the large espresso cup button into a cup (clear water will come out). This primes the machine and makes for hotter coffee.

Coffee not hot enough


hi elite 288! have you tried pre-heating your coffee cups? i fill w/hot water, then set them on cup warmer until i brew coffee (dump out water & slide cup under spout at last moment) and i do my frothing of milk before brewing espresso. also, have you allowed adequate time for machine to warm up/run just water through machine: after it indicates it's ready to go, hit the brew button & allow about a 1/2 cup or cup of water to run thru, warming up the brewhead. when ready button again lights up, brew your espresso. if this doesn't get it hot enough for you, try descaling your machine (you can look online or in manual for how to do this). since you have a refurb unit & heating element may not have been replaced, it could have some build up on it causing it to heat up all the water less efficiently. if this doesn't work, you may need to have the place you purchased it from diagnose and repair. good luck!

Warming plate boils coffee.


Make sure you are using the type of commercial coffee pot like the one in the picture. They don't have to have to be plastic with the metal bottom, they can be all glass. The commercial pots are heavy duty and usually disperse the heat well.

If you are using commercial pots the only solution without replacing the warmers is to put three pennies on the warmer and to put the pot on top of them. The pennies will get hot so don't forget and grab them but the pennies help to move the pot just a little way away from the direct heat.
