The best way to clean a machine like this out is to actually run a full empty brew of a half water half vinegar solution. This will completely clean out the lines inside the machine and freshen everything up quite a bit. After you run the full empty brew of the solution make sure you run at least 2, maybe 3 full brews of just water on the unit. This will ensure that all vinegar is flushed out of the system, and will help clean it as well. Of course the vinegar won't hurt you if it isn't flushed all the way out, just makes it taste quite funky. But 2 flushes with plain water is almost always enough to completely clean it.

Of course when I say an empty brew, don't put any grounds or coffee filter in the machine, just run the water and vinegar through the machine as if you are brewing a full put of coffee.
Please make sure you rate my answer 4 thumbs up, it is extremely important to me. I would be forever grateful if you could do so. If you need more help on this question please just respond to my answer here and I will get right back to you.


Thanks
Tim

What is the best way to remove lime scale and other mineral build up from a Bunn VPR coffee maker? Water flow has been reduced to a trickle even though we used filtered water.


I always use CLR to clean my coffee maker. You don't need much more than 1/4 cup and mix with 8 cups of water and brew it like you would make a pot of coffee, then dump it out and run 2-3 more pots of just water, that should work fine. Also, run vinegar thru the machine once in awhile to help keep it clean

Water wont come out of my bunn coffee maker


The first pot of water you put in the coffee maker just fills the water tank which is then heated up , once it gets to temperature you then pour second pot of water this pushes the hot water out of the tank through the coffee grounds into the waiting pot. This way you can make coffee faster than a regular coffee maker.

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.
