Bunn nhb disassemble

Most likely is that the seal between the water reservoir and the tank is leaking. Not uncommon. If you can find a replacement seal go for it, otherwise the old one can be made serviceable by coating both sides with a thin bead or layer of clear silicone. Allow to cure for 24 hours before powering the coffee maker back up.

My bunn nhb makes a continuous "boiling" sound even after coffee has brewed.

Check with Bunn and see if there has been a recall. I did in Canada and they sent me a new machine complete with some Tim Horton's coffee!
Good Luck!

Our coffee maker leaks out of the bottom of the unit when we make coffee. Only when we make coffee.

id guess the silicone gasket between pan and tank is leaking or you have scale blockage athe outlet to the sprayhead (clean with bunn spring) or directly at where the pan connects to the tank(poke it with a screwdriver or somthing.

When i plug the unit in, the reset switch on the outlet immediately shuts off

Assuming that by "switch" you mean circuit breaker, this is indicative of an electrical short. The circuit breaker is tripping to protect from an overload hazard.
You need to rule out if the outlet itself is bad vs. faulty electronics in the BUNN itself. Here's how you can do that:
1. You may have too many appliances drawing power simultaneously from the same outlet or from other outlets sharing the same circuit. If there are other appliances connected, try removing them temporarily to see if the BUNN still trips the breaker. NOTE: If you are using an extension cord, timer or a surge protector, remove it and connect the BUNN directly to the wall socket. Moreover, do not operate appliances on outlets controlled by a dimmer or a switch.
2. If you are uncertain as to what the cause of the problem is, one option is to relocate the BUNN to another outlet on another circuit in your residence to see if it trips that too. If so, the electrical components in the coffeemaker itself are to blame and you should contact the manufacturer and/or an authorized service center ASAP.
3. If the BUNN was the only thing plugged into the outlet when it tripped, try plugging in something else that draws a similar amount of power/wattage to see if it also trips the circuit while running. If so, your outlet is the culprit and/or the circuit is being shared by too many other outlets in your home (particularly true of old buildings). Call an electrician and/or your property manager to inquire about a solution.
4. Type your BUNN model number and the word "recall" into a search engine. If there is a recall in effect that seems to involve the problem you have encountered, contact BUNN for your service and replacement options. If you determine that the outlet is working correctly and the circuit is not overloaded and you suspect the brewer is at fault but there is no recall notice, consider filing a report with BUNN and/or the Consumer Product Safety Commission. This is a serious safety hazard and needs to be reported to the appropriate parties.

Keeps tripping circuit breakers bunn NHb


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.

Unable to remove our sprayhead from our Bunn NHB Coffeemaker

You might try putting a butter knife underneath the sprayhead to remove it. If this doesn't work, then please contact customer service and request a tool that can be provided to remove the sprayhead.
