Question about Bunn -O-Matic Corp. 2 Warmer Auto Brewer Black

1 Answer

Leak In my office we use an old Bunn model VPR 1660 watt. 2-warmer coffee maker. Recently a leak developed...water coming from the seam between the top part and the middle part on the right side. It happens about half-way through a pot brew...the water comes out gently, and it's room temperature. What comes out is about 1/4-1/2 cup of water. Otherwise it does not leak. I hope you can help.

We need to store a Bunn VPR Series coffee pot. How do I remove the water from the tank?


try hitting 'brew' until all the water evaporates, or look for a 'leak' valve to empty it. usually on the bottom or the side near the tank.

How do I get the BUNN VPR coffee maker to brew a pot of coffee? There are two switches; one for the lower, and one for the upper warmer. Do I first have to fill the tank ALL the way before it brews? Please...


This brewer has a 2 1/2 pot reservoir. You should NOT plug in the brewer before the reservoir has been topped off. Pour 3 pots (one at a time, every minute or so) through the screen with a pot under the filter basket. Wait until the water flows from the basket and only then is it safe to plug in the brewer. The reservoir holds HOT water until you are ready to brew and then, by pouring in a pot of cold water, you will be able to brew.

Bunn Series VPR, pour water in, water comes out cold


Test that you have it plugged into an operating outlet.... Check that all of the switches are "on" (the warmer and the heater switches). If this doesn't help, you'll need to unplug the unit and test the switch and element for proper operation. Both can be tested for continuity. If they all test good, then I'd suspect the thermostat.
Good luck and best regards, --W/D--

WE have the Bunn VPR series. It's a pourover


Hello this coffee maker has a one and a half gallon internal tank, could be one of a few problems, first thing to check is the spray head, unscrew this you may need some channel locks to get it off and check it..use a tooth pick to clear the 6 holes with any lime that may have formed...also if you use a commercial coffee company for your coffee they should have supplied you with a spring to clean the spray head tube. After checking these 2 items the next thing to check is there enough water in the tank..when the vpr is left on and not used for a few days the water in the tank evaporates..it takes approx two and a half pots of water to fill up the internal tank...try pouring another pot of water in...also turn machine off and take the 2 screws out of the top and see if there is lime blocking the drain hole in the fill pan. Hope this helps...please feel free to comment again if you have any other questions...Good Luck!!! Mike

We find water under the coffeemaker in the morning.


Sounds like a leaking water pipe from the water source, unless you have a over temp heater and this results in steam and dripping.

Bunn coffee maker leaks water


There are 3 seals in your unit that could cause your problem. there is a silicon seal right under the pour-in tray, and two on the top of the tank. one of those is for the thermostat, the other is for the sprayhead tube. any of these could leak, causing water to come out the bottom of the brewer. One other thing that can cause this is a scale buildup between the pour-in tray and the tank.

I own a bunn and my brother's business owns 2 of these. The rule of thumb as he was told by the salesman is 2 oz of coffee grinds per 48 oz of water.

Coffee pot


I am having the identical probem, I plug it in, it starts to heat, but no brewing. I have removed the lid and the water pan underneath, and looked into the opening. When heating, the voltage on the main heater is 110 volts. It stars to steam, then the unit switches off.I think that for some reason,it's not allowing the temp. to rise to the boiling point. Anybody have any ideas? I'll check on that one way valve in the meantime.
