Why is water pouring out of the fabric softener drawer on the top right corner of the machine?


Some machines are set to release a small portion of water into the softner to cleanse it, however u may have a clogged hose line forcing water back up and out? or cracked damaged lines, etc even a house tube that came unplugged ?

Water supply for ice maker won't turn off


Hi,

Its either the water valve thats not closing, or the ice maker not telling the water valve to shut off.

Turn off the ice maker, and see if water still pours out, or even better, unplug the refrigerator and if the water still pours out of the ice maker, then the water valve is bad and you should have it replaced.

How do I adjust the amount of water that is coming out causing the pot to overflow.


There is NOT an adjustment for the pour over coffee brewers.
I think you have calcium build up. Remove the spray head and use the spring to clear the water tube (from tank to spray head) if you are handy, remove the top cover and use the spring to clear the hole were the water goes down to the tank from the reservoir.

If there is a lot of calcium build up you need to descale the brewer with vinegar.
Pour 64oz. of water only, When brewing coffee.

Spring is provided from BUNN when you bought the brewer, if not you can order one.

NOTE: Make sure you unplug the brewer before removing the top cover.

Keeps spilling over during brewing


These tanks can't actually be overfilled since all water poured in displaces the exact same amount of water coming out the spout. So, whatever amount of water you pour in, will be the same amount of water that flows to your pot minus the amount absorbed by the coffee grounds and filter.

Your problems sounds like an undersized (Non Bunn) filter, or clogged brew basket. To verify this, try pouring in only half the water for your brew cycle and wait for it to finish dripping, then pour in the rest. If no overflow has occurred, you simply have the wrong type of filter. If overflow begins again, you have a clogged brew basket, since no Bunn can flow too fast for the brew basket to keep up with it.

This is because Bunn filters are manufactured differently than generic store bought paper filters. They will flow faster, brew cleaner and stand up better than normal generic filters.
Remember, Bunn makes their OWN filters for good reason.
They made the first, best paper filters for drip coffee pots, and all others are just generic dioxin gas producing paper.

It sounds like you have a pour over model and the problem is the tank isn't full. Turn the machine off (or unplug it). Put a pot on the warmer like you are going to brew coffee. Pour clean cold water into the top until it starts coming out the sprayhead (above where the coffee grounds go). Now plug it in and turn on. Let it heat up then you can brew.

The way your machine works is that there is always about 2-1/2 pots of water in the tank. The water you pour in to make coffee is actually pushing the hot water in the tank out. So, if you don't fill the tank before using it, you may be hurting the heating element since it isn't totally submerged in water.

Water gets hot but doesnt pull water to grounds


It sounds like the tank isn't full. Unplug the machine and make sure there is a pot underneath to catch water. Pour clean water into the tank until it starts flowing out. Plug the machine in and let it heat up. Then try brewing coffee.

The way your machine works is that there is a holding tank for the water and it isn't actually brewing with the water you just poured in, it is using the holding tank water. If the holding tank gets low, and you pour water in all it does is fill the tank but nothing will come out.

Hope this helps.

The pour-over type of Bunn coffee brewers require several pots of water to fill an empty tank.
1. While unplugged, pour in two and a half to three pots of clean water (put an empty pot underneath the brew basket). When the tank is full, water will come out of the brew basket.
2. Plug the unit in and wait for it to heat - about 5 to 7 minutes. These brewers are meant to be left plugged in all of the time to keep the tank water hot. You will probably heat some rumbling noises which is normal as the water heats.

If for some reason the water isn't hot after 10 minutes you will need to check the thermostat. Unplug the machine and take the screws out of the top. The thermostat has a little dial or a t-bar that you can turn. All the way left is off and all the way right is boiling. Turn this up about 90% of the way and put the top back on the machine and plug it in. If it gets hot, you are ready to brew. If it doesn't get hot, you may have blown the limit thermostat and will need to replace it.

The limit thermostat isn't the same as the thermostat. It is a ceramic and metal item that senses if the tank gets too hot from having the unit plugged in without any or enough water in it. It is inexpensive and relatively simple to change.
