Question about Bunn NHB Coffee Maker

3 Answers

The coffee maker has started overfilling the pot. We are concerned it will eventually overflow on to the elcetronics. It is a VLPF two burner

    While I understand the logic of the advice it does not address the fact that my Bunn VLFP is putting too much water through filter into the pot. When the unit/water finally cuts off the it nearly overflows the pot. It is a Bunn pot and the same pot I have always used.

    I really don't think my question is being understood. In the past few days after several years of use my Bunn coffee maker is putting too much water through the filter and into the pot. I use the same pot, the same coffee and the same filters for years. The system has somehow started letting in too much water. Does the system have some type of water regulating system that could have failed and may be servicable?

    I suspect that my problem lies in the brew time switch. It still tends to overfill first brew in that AM but after the adjustment it seems fine the rest of the day. Thanks

Hello,There is a brew timer on the left side of your machine near the heater switch. you need to remove an access panel to access it. turn this down a little, let the water heat up, then try another brew. Adjust as needed, brewing another pot between each setting.
wish you good luck,

take care.

Hello,

First, make sure you're using the right type of coffee filter for your filter basket. They do come in different sizes and thicknesses. Second, make sure the coffeemaker is set to fast drip and not slow drip if it has an adjustable soak rate. Third, wash out the filter basket in your dish washer at least once a week.

If your local tap water has a lot of mineral deposits in it, it might also be good to soak the water well, basket and carafe in a product like lime-a-way overnight, then thoroughly rinse and dry everything out before using it again.

Thanks for contacting Fixya.

I just bought the Bunn VLPF series, double burner. My other Bunn coffee pot had the option of make a half pot of coffee but this one does not Is there a tip to follow for half a pot?


Sorry this brewer is usually set up for a full pot brew. I have reset this for a small (but not half) pot brew as the customer wanted to use a metal carafe (with their own logo). I also tried once to get it to half pot brew but it can get tricky if you actually brew twice to get a full pot (in the same pot).
* there is a siphon action that starts once the boiler tank gets filled to a certain point. From that point it will continue to flow until the boiler is emptied to the level that stops the siphon action and leaves enough water in boiler to reheat for the next brew. Achieving the siphon point may be a larger volume of water for 1/2 a pot but may work for 3/4ths a pot. The 1/2 way mark may be affected by the brewers "level" while placed on a table or sagging in the middle of a weak table.
* Usually if you want a smaller brew then go with a smaller brewer. Though there is a hot water tap that will give you 2-4 cups of hot water (it gets tepid after that) which you can use for the "Mug" style brew. But it does get messy.ukeboy57
* Final, If you don't mind a little more than 1/2 pot brews then ask your vendor to adjust the machine for you. Though a reminder NOT the double brew in the same pot as it will overflow.
Aloha, ukeboy57

Hot water will not come down thru coffee


Your pour over coffee brewer has a reservoir that holds more than a pot of water. First thing you need to do is turn off the machine. Then put the empty coffee pot on the burner. Then take another container and fill it with fresh cold water and pour it slowly into the coffee maker until it starts to come out into the coffee pot. Stop pouring in water.

Now turn the machine on and let it heat up. Now you can brew normally. The reservoir has to be filled before you turn it on or you will end up eventually burning up the heating element.

Sounds like your timer part #32400.0002.This is the new type timer which replaces the dial timer.Another thing is does this happen when you turn on the on/off switch? I would also check your liquid level probe in top of tank.Always a possibility bad liquid level board.If it only does this when you push the brew button the timer is bad.

Keeps spilling over during brewing


These tanks can't actually be overfilled since all water poured in displaces the exact same amount of water coming out the spout. So, whatever amount of water you pour in, will be the same amount of water that flows to your pot minus the amount absorbed by the coffee grounds and filter.

Your problems sounds like an undersized (Non Bunn) filter, or clogged brew basket. To verify this, try pouring in only half the water for your brew cycle and wait for it to finish dripping, then pour in the rest. If no overflow has occurred, you simply have the wrong type of filter. If overflow begins again, you have a clogged brew basket, since no Bunn can flow too fast for the brew basket to keep up with it.

This is because Bunn filters are manufactured differently than generic store bought paper filters. They will flow faster, brew cleaner and stand up better than normal generic filters.
Remember, Bunn makes their OWN filters for good reason.
They made the first, best paper filters for drip coffee pots, and all others are just generic dioxin gas producing paper.

The machine is always on, so it is never full the first time you use it on monday. Try this before you use it on monday pour in a full pot of water in the brewer and put an empty pot under the head. Wait about 7 minutes, the machine will fill the tank and then be ready for brewing coffee.
