I would try to get a replacement, since something sounds faulty with the unit. Usually a clogged water line in the maker causes problems like this, with mineral buildup after a period of time, but this is a new unit and shouldn't have this problem. Contact Bunn and see if they will honor a replacement- here is their web support page:
Push for a replacement, since it's not going to be an easy fix.
Good luck, thanks for using FixYa, and hope this helps.

How much apple vinegar do I add to 4oz of water

Hello Linda Mohr,

1/2 White vinegar +1/2 water (wait 30 minutes = success.

This from the HUFFINGTON POST...

Fill the coffee maker's water chamber with equal parts white vinegar and water. Using a paper filter, allow to brew until half the chamber is empty. Turn the coffee maker off and let it sit for 30 minutes, then finish brewing. Rinse the machine by using a new paper filter to brew a pot of clear water.

I would stay away from apples.. grapes,
wine & balsamic vinegars...
I like a strong cup of coffee... but wit a
COFFEE FLAVOR (nothing else).

If you can NOT find WHITE VINEGAR use a commercial

How do I empty the water from the main reservoir?

  • Turn off the Keurig coffee maker, and unplug the power cord. Allow the unit to cool for 30 minutes before emptying the water. This gives the water inside the hot water tank an opportunity to cool, helping to prevent accidental scalding when emptying.
  • Pull the lid off the top of the water reservoir. Lift the water reservoir straight up and to the right of the coffee maker. Pour out any remaining water in the reservoir into the sink.
  • Turn the small thumb screw on the back of the Keurig coffee maker counterclockwise with your fingers, and pull off the rear access panel. If the screw is too tight to turn with your fingers, use a flat-head screwdriver to turn the screw. Once you remove the access panel, a tube with a plug on the end is visible. Pull the tube out of the plastic clip holder.
  • Place a large pitcher behind the coffee maker. Hold the end of the tube over the pitcher, and pull the plug out of the tube. Allow the water to drain into the pitcher. If necessary, maneuver the coffee maker to the edge of the counter, and hold the pitcher alongside the counter with the top at counter level.
  • Push the plug back into the end of the tube once no more water drains from the hot water tank. Empty the pitcher of water into the sink, and push the tube back into the plastic clip holder. Position the back access panel onto the coffee maker and secure with the thumb screw knob.

    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.

    Vanishing water

    Is this problem happening by chance after you have used the maker? If so the heat from the previous use may be causing the water to steam from being so hot and thus causing the pot to be only half full. the hotter the maker the more water evaporates. You might need to let it cool down in between pots.

    No manual with Bunn NHBX coffee maker.

    before plugging in place your empty filter basket in the coffee maker and place a pot under it. Slowly pour in two pots of water using the pour pitcher. Now you can plug it in. it'll take 15 min to heat up first time . when you brew your first pot leave your water level a little short,because the water will expand (only the first time)

    Pumping more water out than what i put in

    This coffee maker uses a resevoir tank system - the water you pour in pushes out water that is already heated - the water you pour in won't actually be used for that pot of coffee! For that reason you should only use full pitchers when filling. You may need to cycle through 2 or 3 fillings before the input matches the output once more. The capacity of the resevoir is about 3 pitchers; you can brew 2 pots in a row before the machine needs a break to bring the resevoir back up to temperature.

    3-Pot coffee Maker instructions

    The first time you use the machine you need to make sure it is full of water - before you plug it in and turn it on. Put an empty coffee pot under the brew basket and fill another empty pot with clean cold water.

    Pour the water into the coffee maker. If water comes out then you can plug it in and turn it on. The water heating tank holds about 2-1/2 pots of water so if your machine is empty you will need to keep adding water before you turn it on otherwise you may burn up the heating element.

    After the green light comes on - indicating that the tank is hot you can brew a pot of coffee. This machine is meant to be left on all of the time so it is always ready to brew. If you choose to turn it off when not in use, you will need to give it about 10 minutes to fully heat up the water before you brew.

    How to

    Fill the pitcher with water to the water level park on the pitcher and pour into water intake in the top of the tea brewer.
    Fill pitcher to ice level mark (if there isn't one, put in about 2 - 3 trays).
    Make sure that the brew basket lever is closed by pushing in then down.
    Put 6 - 10 regular tea bags in brew basket and place brew basket on top of pitcher.
    Slide the pitcher with the brew basket under the machine where the water comes out and make sure it is snug. Turn machine on.
    When the machine is done brewing, the unit will shut off automatically.
    Carefully slide the pitcher away from the machine and release the lever. This will let the tea pour into the pitcher.
    That's it! Just don't put the pitcher, lid or brew basket in the dishwasher - that's how I ruined my first one.
