First make sure you have enough water in the machine. It holds about 2 and a half pots of water in the holding tank. If the machine sits for a week without use but is still plugged in, sometimes the water will evaporate down to the point where pouring one pot of water in, will not fill the tank back up. If you still don't get a water flow, take the brew funnel out and reach up where the water normally comes out, There is a round water dispenser about 2 inches in diameter. Unscrew it by turning countercloclwise. It has a dozen or so holes where the water come out. Be sure these holes are not stopped up. There is a small pipe fitting where you took the water dispenser off. Bunn makes a long spring like thing that fits into this hole to remove built up lime deposits. If you don't have one you can use a flexable wire like braided copper wire about 18 inches long to push through the hole and slide it back and forth until it comes out clean. If you have hard water, like well water you may be getting a lot of calcium build up in the tank. Put about a quart of vinegar in the next coffee pot and let it sit an hour. Pour water through the machine until it stops smelling like vinegar. That should solve your problems.

How do you get a bunn pour omatic coffe maker to pour water into the hopper. I put water where it's supose to go it heats up but no water come out. Is there something I'm not doing. Its an older one.


did you pour in another pot of water? It heats up the reserve tank so you always have hot water instantly, but to get that water you need to pour in another pot of water to replace it.

My coffe maker leaks water all over the counter and has for a very long time, why? It's only about 3 yrs. old or less, I think and I am tired of it, I have to clean it up everyday and then add more water...


If you haven't used a replacement carafe, then it is probably a clog in the drip orifice, at the bottom of the basket. Note: don't put hot water in your coffee maker as it will perk faster and cause an overflow. Only use cold water. If you have replaced the carafe then it is probably the wrong size.

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.

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)

Water leak on a Bunn coffee maker model B8W, leak only when brewing a pot of coffee


Where is the leak coming from? If it is from the back of the unit or the bottom then it is cracked and you will just need to replace the coffee maker. If it is leaking from the top then it is a seal issue in the water valve that brings the water from the tank and into the coffe filter and into the pot.
