Sounds like the the thermostat is boiling the water, try turning down the thermostat if that does not work, it might need to be replaced.

    Also check the solenoid that might be the main problem, try this first, turn off the water to the machine after you are done brewing, if there is no water leaking from the top replace the solenoid.

Coffee is in water is in nothing happens


You may not have enough water in the tank.
Follow these steps

1. With the coffee pot unplugged, fill your resevoir/tank until water begins pouring out of your sprayhead and brew basket.
2. Wait for the water to finish dripping then plug in your Bunn.
3. Let your Bunn warm up for at least 8 minutes.
4. Run a test cycle with clean water, remembering to use the water pitcher provided for this purpose, while leaving your empty pot on the burner beneath the brew basket.
5. If your cycle completed, and your coffee pot is filled to the desired level you are ready to make coffee.

Remember that these Bunn models have no water filter2_bing.gif installed, so, the cleaner the water the better tasting the coffee.

The top burner on our bunn coffee maker is getting to hot, causing the coffee to pop, do you have any suggestions on how to fix this problem? Please advise


Bunn makes a spacer that goes on top of the burner to put space between the burner and the coffee pot, or you can make your own out of a coat hanger. The only other way to fix this is to replace the warmer plate.

Bunn coffee brewer leaking


Is this a lot of water, or just a small amount.

As the unit sits over time and runs heating cycles, it may have some vapor come out of the vents. That will cool and collect around the unit.

try turning the unit off for the weekends. If you still have water around the unit, then it may have a leak in the tank.

My Bunn coffee pot leaks water theres always a puddle of water under the pot.coffee pot is over half full


It sounds like you have a broken seal/gasket. Please get the model and date code located on the bottom of the machine and call customer service. The machine has a 3 year warranty so if it is 3 years old or less, it will be replaced at no cost. If it is over 3 years old, it will be replaced at a discounted price.

I have a BUNN VPS that leaks water when we make coffee. I have removed the top of the maker and watched, but I can not see the leak.


There is a significant amount of plumbing inside one of these. I think it will have to be taken apart to find the leak -- these leaks are very common and sometimes very difficult to stop (kinda like a roof leak).

Bunn coffee maker leaks water


There are 3 seals in your unit that could cause your problem. there is a silicon seal right under the pour-in tray, and two on the top of the tank. one of those is for the thermostat, the other is for the sprayhead tube. any of these could leak, causing water to come out the bottom of the brewer. One other thing that can cause this is a scale buildup between the pour-in tray and the tank.
