Every time I plug in my bunn coffee maker, it trips the GFI. But when I plug it into another plug in my kitchen, it will work, but it seems like the water reserve is not right. It blows too much steam and the top starts lifting up from the pressure of the steam, then it starts leaking out the top left side. Then if I pour enough water to make 10 cups, it only makes 6 or 8. The coffee maker is only 3 years old, what should I do?

Sounds like a heating element is touching some metal part inside the unit,the element is located under the warmer plate,if you can remove the base(if its not rivited on) you can isolate this element to see if this is your problem

We unplugged our Bunn and left it unplugged overnight to do some painting. When we plugged it back in the light doesn't come on the warmer and the water does not heat.


The unit is not getting power. If the receptacle is protected by a GFI, then press the Reset button. Otherwise, check that the circuit breaker (or fuse) to that receptacle isn't tripped.

When i plug it in it trips my gfi and it is not on


This can be caused by one of two things. (1) The GFI plug has a problem: it could be broken behind the face plate, or some of the wires in the box are so close that when you push a plug into the outlet, they touch and trip the GFI. (2) The other source is due to a defect in the appliance between the cord and the power switch. That is why the GFI faults even before it the coffee maker is turned on.

Have the outlet checked thoroughly and make any needed adjustments / repair /replacement and reconnect the coffee maker again. If it trips, the coffee maker will need to be serviced. DO NOT use the coffee maker in another non-GFI outlet until it has been checked out. The chances of electrical shock or burns is significant until the problem is found and corrected.

Keeps tripping GFI outlets


The key here is to identify the problem as being either the coffee maker or the GFI receptacle... a simple test can be done as follows...
Try plugging the Coffee Maker into another GFI receptacle .. you may have one in the bathroom? If it trips that too, then you have an internal wiring problem with your coffee maker.. if it doesn;t ..then your GFI receptacle may be bad or on the verge of going bad .. either way..this should narrow the problem down to one or the other.. hope this helps..

Bunn coffee maker trips the breaker


It is possible that you have a short in your limit thermostat, but most likely this is caused by small holes in your main heating element. these units start to split length ways down the element, causing a short to ground through the water. These elements are readily available at your local Bunn repair shop.
