Re: empty bunn coffeemaker
The easiest way to empty these brewers is to turn them upside down over the sink. Turn it on it's side, always keeping the fill hole down toward the sink, and keep on going until you have the unit completely upside down. If there is a push switch under the lid to stop water from going into the pot until the lid is closed, you will have to keep this pushed in until the unit is empty

If this is a pour-over coffeemaker, you can't do anything about the flow. It's just gravity pushing the water out of the reservoir. But you can try using a coarser grind of coffee. If the grind is too fine (if you grind whole beans for too long in a blade grinder, for instance, or if you're using espresso grind coffee), the water can't flow through quickly enough and it backs up and overflows. Make sure your coffee is ground for a drip coffeemaker.
Empty the water reservoir and put back on the side of the coffee maker. Put your hand in the reservoir and slide the disc that monitors the water level back toward the top and and hold in that position,the machine will think there is water. Then put a cup under the head and select a cup. The water will come out. You must hold the disc up inside the reservoir to continue to get the water out. Here is another tutorial : http://www.ehow.com/how_5849515_drain-reservoir-bunn-coffee-maker.html
You might try this first. Remove the entire top lid and remove the clear suction cup located near the back of the brewer. Clean this cup with white vinegar and also take your deliming tool and place it in the hole where the suction cup was and clean out. If this does not correct the problem, please call customer service with the model and code date. If your machine is 3 years old or less, we can replace it at no cost. If it is over 3 years old, we will replace it at a reduced price.
you can always clean a coffeemaker with vinegar, but always pour in cold, so you can do it twice or more, but dont re-use the stuff you just used, wait till it's cold or just use some other.after use clean by let water through 2 or 3 times, (also only cold water)
THis sound is usually caused by the water being low in the tank. This can be because the machine is left on for long periods without being used. If this is not the case, then it would probably be your heating element getting small holes in it.
You can download the operating manual for your machine in pdf format right to your computer from www.bunn.com By the way, I wouldn't personally put vinigar in any Bunn machine, as it takes forever to run enough water through them to get rid of the vinigar taste.
The Bunn coffee machine has an internal tank used for holding approx three potfulls of water at just below brewing temperature. When you add water for a potful, the thermostat senses cold water and starts the brew heater. The water level inside the tank comes up and goes through the sprayhead. This "surge" of water, that you call drips is normal. The hot water stratifies to the top of the tank, just like an electric water tank in a house. The internal pot heater kicks in and boils the water already in the tank, raising the water level in the siphon pipe to the sprayhead until the reservoir under the add water opening is empty.
