I have a Bunn CWTF15. Water does not fill the coffee pot full anymore. Is there a float that needs to be adjusted? Would descaling help this problem? Thank you.

If u haven't cleaned it out using 3/4 vinegar to 1/4 water, some times this will happen. after running this thru ur coffee maker, (u won't believe the junk that comes out), then run full pots of water to rinse out (2x's). This should help it perform better.

    We cleaned it out and it definitely needed it, however, the water is still only filling the pot about 2 inches (not even 1/2 a pot). Is there a float on these units that could be adjusted? i should have also mentioned our Bunn is plumbed. We do have the pour over top and I poured the vinegar in. It took about 20 pots to completely get the vinegar out since it only fills it up about 2 inches at a time.

The coffee dispensing valve is stuck open. It may be due to Calcium deposits.
Descale the machine or manually clean the dispensing valve and the diffuser disc that unscrews to be removed. This diffuser is visible just above the coffee pot.

How do i clean my bunn air pot coffee brewer?

Run a pot of half water and half vinegar through the coffee pot and you may need to repeat this process a couple times to get all the calcium buildup cleaned out of the pot. Hope this helps.

When i make coffee sometimes the water that comes out is cold or luke warm

The brewer has not had enough time to reach its operating temp (usually 7 mins after a brew cycle). If that is not hte case then the machine needs to be descaled.

Starts brewing to quick anddispenses before i can put pot under it.

Yes, I have a bunn also. Does the same thing. No way to fix problem, they don't have a shut off when pot is removed. What I did was bought a second pot I use to fill. Or you can use a water pitcher, just fill pot, pour into pitcher then fill machine. Only solution to help with problem, I do this and dont have coffee everywhere anymore.

Funky bits in water after waiting about an hour.

If it is mold it will be removed by hot water, just cycling the machine a couple of times. If instead is scale , as I think , then it can be removed using a descaler product:Saeco: Descaling Agent Dezcal Box
