Bunn CW Coffee Brewer not brewing enough coffee - amount is half


Have you cleaned lately, put in an empty filter and fill with cold water with a tablespoon of white/clear vinegar. Run the brew cycle, empty pot and while still worm fill with cold water again with out vinegar. Than check filter to see how much hard water chunks are in the filter. Repeat with and without vinegar tell filter is clean. One question though is there a lot of steam coming out of the top during the brewing cycle if so inside there is a tube that may be cracked, broken or came loose, have to look inside. requires opening or disassembling unit to check. REMEMBER when taking apart UNPLUG unit first.

Coffee brewing very weak


possible ways to remedy this problem:
problem of weak beverage
solutions:
1. Filter Type-BUNN paper filters must be used
for proper extraction.
2. Coffee Grind-A fine or drip grind must be used
for proper extraction.
3. Sprayhead-A six-hole stainless steel spray-
head must be used for proper
extraction.
4. Funnel Loading-The BUNN paper filter must be centered in the funnel and the bed of ground leveled by gentle shaking.
5. Water Temperature- Place an empty funnel on an empty
dispenser beneath the sprayhead. Initiate a brew cycle and check the
water temperature immediately below the sprayhead with a ther-
mometer. The reading should not be less than 195F (91C). Adjust
the control thermostat to increase the water temperature. Replace if necessary.

No pot or instructions, how much water do you put in the coffee pot?Need a replacement pot for vp17 series. thank you


You should be able to pick up a replacement/new pot at your nearest Restaurant Supply store. Make sure you get a 64 oz./ 1/2 gallon pot.
Before plugging in your brewer, unscrew the sprayhead located just above where the filter basket sits and replace the basket, pour 3 pots of cold water through the opening on the top if the brewer is empty. This brewer has a reservoir that holds about 2 1/2 pots of water at brewing temperature when heated. Make sure you put an empty pot under the filter basket after pouring in the water. Water will flow from the brew basket when the reservoir has reached its capacity. Once water flows you can then plug in and energize your brewer and replace the sprayhead. It will take about 15 to 20 minutes for the brewer to reach brew temp, you will hear the heating stop. Put an empty filter and a dose of coffee (I recommend starting with a heaping measuring cup of drip ground coffee) into the filter basket, lightly shake it level, replace the basket and pour through 1 full pot of COLD water in the top. For best results pour the brewed coffee into a pre-heated thermal server if you plan on holding the coffee for more than 10 minutes or so.
Enjoy!

Kenmore Elite coffee maker Model # 100.9101670A Is this model on a recall? How can I get a manual for it? And what is the filter reset button?


I have a manual with mine and as far as "recall" goes on this model, I've not found anything recalling this particular model...<br /> <br /> The most important thing in the manual, that I have found, is how to clean and change the filter. If all else fails unplug the pot for 10-15 seconds; replug it...this resets it...(if it ever acts up, do this; it helps)<br /> <br /> The filter reset button: Your coffeepot should flash a small message stating: "change filter and clean" To do this you first, turn off the pot, remove filter~(the filter is in a long thin black plastic thing and the filter cover simply snaps and pulls apart to expose the charcoil filter; Remove the Filter, then fill the coffee pot with 7 cups of vinegar plus 7 cups cold water; Place a paper type regular coffee filter in the brew basket, or a thin paper towel works well too~(This traps and holds particles that get trapped inside the pot)<br /> <br /> Before brewing; PLEASE NOTE, brew the first pot of vinegar/water mixture only HALF WAY then TURN OFF and let it sit for a good 15 minutes to soften any deposits...<br /> Turn the pot BACK ON and brew the remaining solution. When brew stops turn OFF coffee pot, empty the solution, and discard the paper filter...<br /> <br /> Refill reservoir with cold water and turn ON; you may want to dump this and refill with more cold water to ensure the vinegar taste/smell is gone...<br /> <br /> Now, wash the brew basket and the glass pot...Open the black skiny Water Filter and replace with a new charcoil filter...Put Filter back in pot...fill brew basket with coffee and brew some mighty fine tasting coffee!!! Hope this helps....Good Luck

BUNN VPR commercial coffee pot, not flowing in a steady stream just dripping


Your spray head has 5 to 6 little holes depending on the model and year, and it looks like you have scale, calcium or lime blocking them.
Since your model is a VPR pour model, you will have less trouble cleaning it with white vinegar than the permanent water connection type. I use a gallon of vinegar and filters for this.

Parts needed:
2 Clean, Rinsed Empty coffee cans
1 Gallon of White vinegar
5 coffee filters
1 Toothbrush, preferrably angled head

Start with your Bunn turned off and place an empty full size coffee can under the pour spout. Now place a filter in the brew basket to catch any fine particles you don't want poured back in the resevoir and heater. You will need to change this filter a few times as the trash starts coming out of your spout.

With the coffee can, brew basket, and a fresh empty filter in place you want to start pouring the vinegar in the tank while catching the water with the coffee can. As it fills with water you will need to dump the can down the drain until the full gallon of vinegar has been poured in the Bunn. Allow the excess water to finish flowing out into the coffee can making sure to leave half the water in the can to pour back into the coffee maker.

By now your tank should be filled with mostly white vinegar, and your coffee can should be at least half full of vinegar as well.
Now you can turn on the lower pot warmer to keep the solution hot and plug your Bunn into the outlet.

Allow 8 to 10 minutes for the heater to heat up and pour the half full coffee can of vinegar into the fill area. Allow the cycle to complete and replace the filter as needed, or if flow begins to slow down.
If your heads are clogged, use the toothbrush to clear the holes as the vinegar is flowing until you see all holes flowing vinegar.

Chunks of trash will dislodge in your heater tank and flow to your spray head, so keep that toothbrush ready.

Do this at least 5 times, then allow the Coffee maker to sit 30 minutes with the heater on to finish dissolving the lime and calcium deposits in the tank.

After 30 minutes start flushing the system with clean water to rinse out all of the vinegar, or until you can no longer smell vinegar in the coffee can.

Good Luck!

My tim hortons coffee maker is not brewing as quickly..s there a wayto clean it


Make a 1/2 pot 50/50 mixture of cold water and white vinegar then run it through the machine in normal brewing fashion. Place a clean filter in the brewing cup to catch the white deposits that are removed. Allow the mixture to cool, then repeat the process several times while using the same filter. Finally, run several pots of fresh water through to work out the taste of the vinegar. Repeat whenever the brewing time seems to be excessive.

Hi
More than likely its you brew head screen. Coffee will build up on the top surface and turn rancid after awhile. Remove the screen(its either a screw or bolt that holds it on). I like to remove everything and turn the machine upside down on a towel. That way I can see what I am doing. Clean everything even around the brew head gasket. This gasket needs to changed every year for best sealing of the portafilter. Buy 2 because they always fail on Friday when you have a party on Saturday.
Soak you brew head screen in hot water with a pinch of automatic dish washing detergent or espresso machine cleaner. Use a tooth brush to remove the crusty burnt on coffee residue or just buy a new screen. Clean this screen every 6 months because they should last the life of the machine.

Clean the pot by brewing a full pot of undiluted vinegar, then rinsing it by brewing 2 full pots of water through it. Also, change the charcoal filter on a regular basis. We clean the pot this way every month and replace the filter every 2 months.

Cuisinart grind and brew


This happens when the machine needs cleaned. Fill coffee maker with white vineger instead of water. Turn grind off, make sure empty pot is in place. Brew a pot of hot vineger. Repeat. Brew a pot of hot water. Repeat. This process removes mineral buildups inside machine. If you have access to filtered water, start using that to brew your coffee. I do and probably do this process 1 per 6 weeks.
