    I have had the same problem several times. You can pull the knob off the bottom but you can also just soak it a solution of vinegar and water and then run water through a bunch of times (while it is off the coffee maker), sometimes little bits of coffee gets stuck in it. You can also but a new unit at a cuisineart dealer for about $12 if you like the feature. Other problem can be the thermal lid - same issue - coffee gets in there and jams it up - I found that just running really hot tap water through the top every few weeks and making sure it flow out the little spigot on the underside of the lid solves the problem. Nice coffee pot, good coffee, but they need to find a better design for these parts.

    Got this coffee maker as a wedding gift, Was happy about it till the first time I woke up with coffee all over my counter and not inside the pot.

    I have had the same problem several times. I've only had it for less than 3 months and some of the water must have gotten inside and now it won't even turn on! Very disappointed with design. A lot of money for only 3 months use!

Our machine is plumbed into the water directly. When we brew a pot of coffee it never brews a full pot. any thoughts on what the problem is?


You should call your vendor for service on any commercial brewer. (Especially if it's on loan from them)
*** the following is for information only as all repairs should be performed by a qualified tech.***

Most commercial (plumb in water line) has a start switch activates the timer (analog or digital) board which turns on the water feed to the brew tank. This forces previously heated water out and sprayed over the ground coffee in the brew funnel. Coffee then drips into the decanter. Under filling is caused by un-calibrated timer or interment timing.
* The timer comes in two types; Dial (old) and Digital. If it's the dial then a simple turn of the dial will make less or more water flow to decanter. You MUST re-brew (no coffee, but use funnel) into the decanter or pot that you plan to use. Don't mix up different size pots as the timer is only good for 1 setting. Turn dial and brew once to check. Keep checking with a brew after each adjustment. Do a final brew just to be sure.
* The digital timer is a bit more complicated to adjust. Sorry, too many switches and options to go into it here. Check your MFR online for a manual (usually a FREE download). Several methods may be listed.
* If it does not adjust or won't keep the set time then. Replace the timer. Digital timers tend to be sensitive to electrical storms. Analog timers have a dial and are more tolerant of electrical surges.
* Check the water fill solenoid. Should be a definite click when activated. Water filling sound should be very clear.
* No water flow then check the water supply line if it's on.
* Final; this brewer needs service. Call your coffee vendor for advice.
Aloha, ukboy57

P.S., Older timers usually are reliable. It may have been set for a larger decanter or pump pot. The pump pots come in 2.5L and 3L for the big boys. Decanters are 10 cup and standard 12 cup. Check your office as there may be an unused pump pot or small decanter in a cupboard that got put away for making "too little" coffee. Try a brew in this smaller pot. Any change in pot size requires an adjustment to the timer. This is the only way to get "Less" or "More" out of the brewer. (Yes, if you have a "Pour Over" function for one time special brews. Check the manual for this option.)

Why does my mr. Coffee decanter leak?


First I'm not a Mr. Coffee tech but I have worked on similar machines.
* Most decanters are made of tempered glass and unless cracked it should not leak.
* Most overflowing pots are caused by over filling brewing tank. This can be caused by re-pouring additional water into the brew tank. (automatic brewers may have a leaking water valve - call your vendor for service)
* Partial brewing (taking coffee from a brewing pot) and then putting in more water.
* Removing the pot BEFORE it stops dripping. It leaves a puddle of coffee on the warmer plate
*Over filling the water tank. Most times the extra water will spill out the back. But some may overflow into the basket area then the warmer plate.
* Follow the MFR brewing instructions for filling.
* All brewers should stop water drips after brewing. If you get a constant drip AFTER brewing then have the brewer checked or replaced. Call your vendor.

CWTF15 WILL NOT STOP WATER FLOW WHEN POT IS MADE.


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.

Water overfill


The A10 has a semi-sealed tank that keeps +1 pot of water heated and ready to brew. Pouring in a full pot of cold water will fill the top tray and allow a slow trickle of cold water into the top which forces hot water to over flow into the brew basket. This continues until all the cold water drains into the heater tank. So the brew is matched volume per volume. UNLESS the tank was empty or not filled prior to brewing. Follow the brewing instructions from Bunn (on line for *FREE* download at Bunn.com)
* If it leaks (from the bottom) only when you pour in water. Then your pouring it too fast and over flowing the fill tray. slowdown, watch the level in the tray. do not fill past the lid.
* If it leaks just sitting (not brewing) then there is a hole in the tank. Call for service.
* If it leaks after filling the tray half way. then the top of the tank has a leak, loose, cracked, or missing gasket. There is quite a few gaskets on the lid. Call for service.
* Final; Leaks are always bad around electrical equip. Best to unplug and call for service to be safe.

PS. Check your using the correct size decanter for this brewer. If it's a 10 cup brewer then make sure all the decanters in the office is also 10 cup. Pouring a 12 cup pot into brewer will have 12 cups of coffee come out (over flowing the 10 cup pot.) Note that not all decanters are made the same size. Other brands may be different. Test by filling a pot with water (from faucet) then pouring directly into pot in question. It should match and not under fill nor over fill.

PS, Check the pots in the office. Make sure they are all the same size. Decanters come in 3 sizes; 10 cup, 12 cup (standard), and 3L (3 litters). Check the decanter brand as each brand is a bit different in size. All metal decanters are usually very small (8 cup). What ever size you use, just make sure they are all the same.

SAYS COFFE READY PUSH LARGE CUP AND A COUPLE OF DROPS COME OUT THAN SAYS FILL AND PUSH STEAM HAVE DONE AND REDONE SEVERAL TIMES STILL NOT GETTING A CUP OF COFFEE TOOK TANK OUT AND CHECKED FOR FLOTATION IT...


Hello.

1 Perform the initial setup on the coffee maker. Make sure the coffee maker is not plugged in. Slide the empty funnel into the funnel guides, fill the decanter with cold water, open the lid and pour water from the decanter into the brewer, put the decanter back on the base, then close the lid and wait three minutes for the internal tank to partially fill. Open the lid, fill the decanter with cold water again, and once more pour the water directly into the brewer. Put the decanter back on the base and wait for water to flow out of the funnel and into the decanter. Once it has stopped flowing, pour out any water that is in the decanted and plug in the coffee maker. Press the on switch to turn the coffee maker on and heat up the water in the tank.

2 Ensure the lid is completely closed. If the lid is open, the Bunn coffee maker will not brew coffee.

3 Check the see how much water is in the water tank. The Bunn coffee maker will not begin brewing coffee if less than 20 ounces (4 cups) of water is present in the water reservoir tank.
4 Delime the coffee maker. Unplug the coffee brewer and allow it to cool down. Remove the sprayhead by turning it by hand and set it aside. Insert the flexible deliming tool into the sprayhead tube until all but two inches are showing. You may need to twist and force the tool to go in. Slide the tool in and out several times to loosen lime buildup.
Check the sprayhead for lime buildup. If there are flakes of minerals, they can be removed with a toothpick. Scrub the sprayhead with soap and water. Rinse the sprayhead with water and replace it in the coffee maker. Pour water into the water tank and turn the coffee maker on, allowing water to run through without making any coffee. This will flush any lime fragments through the system. Empty the decanter

Thanks.

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.

My coffee pot is very slow and only 3/4 of pot fills


With the machine full of water and still turned on, pour in 1 qt of white vinegar into the top and place decanter on base and close the lid. You will let this sit in the machine for 2 hours. At the end of 2 hours, flush out the vinegar with 8-10 decanters of water.

Not brewing full pots of coffee


Check the in line water fliter. It may need to be changed.

You can try this also.

Put the brew basket in place with no coffee in it, put an empty decanter under the basket. take a full decanter and pour it in the water fill screen at the top of the unit. When the wtaer stops dripping and the unit is back up to temp, try a full brew cycle.

If it works OK, it just got low on water in the tank

Could be caused by a plugged up filter or lime scale build up.
