Question about Bunn Pour-Omatic Coffeemaker, 10 Cup White

1 Answer

BUNN Pour-Omatic I have a BUNN VPR Pour-Omatic and this morning (yesterday worked fine), the water stopped coming out hot. The carafe warmers work, the switches are working. The water just comes out cold. Would it be the thermostat or the tank heater itself?

Most likely it is your tank heater, but look on the top of the tank heater, because sometimes the wire will burn off the top of the element

We have a Bunn vpr pot and we empty it in the fall and restart it in the summer. How much water needs to be added and how long do we wait until the water is ready? Also once we made a pot do we just need...


The bunn VPR is a gravity brew system what you put in if the tank is full is what you will get out. So pour water in until it flows out the sprayhead, then turn machine on, when it heats up fill up a carafe with water (1.9Liters) and put in your filter with water and brew. It is a good idea to pour water in every morning to make sure tank is full especially if you are not using brewer on the weekends.

My pour-omatic steams up overnight then will not brew full pot


Check the thermostat on the machine, make sure pot is full before brewing. The water in the tank just heats up it is loosing most of it, make sure lid is on pour in screen.

Why is our coffee maker brewing only half a carafe after filling with a whole carafe of water?


There is different reasons one being that it is a gravity/syphon system. Meaning as you pour cold water into the tank it forces the hot water up through a tube. What you may need to is simply pour water in until you see the water start to trickle out of the sprayhead that will let you know the tank is full. Like any container the water heat will eventually start to disapate. Once you have filled it to where you can see the water trickle out of the sprayhead allow a d\few minutes for the heater to heat up to temp again. Then you should be able to pour in a FULL carafe and get the results you are looking for. Or you could always look on bunnomatic's website for one that hooks up to water line and eliminates the need to pour any water in. www.midstatebeverage.com

Water reservoir wont heat water. Is it possibly the thermostat is bad? Would not being clean afeect this? the burners work fine. It is an older, 2 burner model VPR W/G


The VPR has both a thermostat and a "Limit Thermostat". The limit thermostat is located on the top of the tank and has 4 wires connected to it. It is a small round (usually whitish) disc. After time the get old and don't stay connected (fall apart or fail). It could be the problem and is less expensive than swapping the thermostat first. (You would want to replace it anyway if it is "older")
Hope this helps.

I have a Bunn VPR, it brews fine for a couple pots


Try running a quarter-pot 50/50 solution of white vinegar and cold water through to clean out calcium deposits in the pump system. Use a clean filter to catch the pumped debris. When pumped through, let cool somewhat, and reuse the cold mixture again twice more. Pour out the vinegar solution and run several cold water loads through to wash out the taste. Hope this helps!

The water is not getting hot


You can check to see if the switch on the side of the tank is turned on and is working, but if the problem is with the tank heater itself, you can't get replacement parts for this model unless you can find a broken one at a garage sale or a Bunn service center. You can obtain a list of service centers in your area from www.bunn.com

If you still have warranty on the machine take it in to the nearest service center.
Its probably a lose pipe in the machine. so if you dont have warranty left just open it up and look for lose pipes and reconnect them.

My bunn is too slow


Use the de-liming spring to clean the copper tube behind the spray head. Pour several pots of clear white vinegar through the unit to further remove lime and scale from the interior of your coffee maker. My Bunn is 24 years old, and the only replacement parts I've ever required are new carafes and the 4041 silicone washer repair kit.
