Question about Bunn Pour-Omatic Coffeemaker, 10 Cup White

1 Answer

Weak coffee Until this past week our Bunn worked great, however, suddenly it began producing very weak coffee with 5 scoops of fine coffee. Nothing changed in our coffeemaking, though we tried different approaches, but without success. What makes the machine suddenly quit making adequately strong coffee? We use it daily. The coffee comes out hot enough. Beth

It sounds like you may have lost the sprayhead. It is under the brew basket (above the place where you put the basket with the filter and the coffee). Sometimes they get loose and you don't realize it and it can fall in the grounds and get tossed out after brewing.

Light showing coffee maker burner is on/off is not working. How can I replace it


Hello, My name is Mike I am a Espresso Expert. There is so many things these days that can cause your machine to have a problem. Companies are great at producing machines for consumers to purchase, but weak when it comes to helping a average person at home to trouble shoot the problem and only a few can fix it them self. So what I did is down load the complete manual for your machine as well, as it has schematics and trouble shooting guide along with how to fix it if you feel you can tackle that project. So, download the manual and you determine if you can fix the problem that you find on your machine via this manual. Please if you can, rate my free help and some kind words with comment would be appreciated too. Thanks Mike.

Coffee is really week


Check the sprayhead, make sure all holes are clear, then check the grind on the coffee it might be too coarse, and also check the amount of coffee being used, you need about 2 to 2.5 ozs.

I work for BUNN. It sounds like your sprayhead is missing because it should definitely be spraying versus flowing. We will send you out a free sprayhead - please call our customer service department at 1800 - 352-2866 with your model and will send it right out to you.

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.

Coffee is weak and watery


After reviewing troubleshooting diagrams, I really couldn't find a solution to your problem.

The only thing I can suggest is to use 2 oz per pot of coffee grounds. Your 5 or 6 scoops assuming they are one ounce each is way more than enough.

Look under where your basket goes. Most bunn coffee maker has a flavor guard on the downspout. this down spout actually helps distributes the water over the whole basket of coffee grounds. Most of the time I see these missing, and when they are gone, they are gone.

Use less water for the amount of coffee you are using first. Sadly when there is not enough water, the coffee tastes bitter. Too much water tastes weak. Hot water extracts certain elements out of the beans even after grinding.

Always use a fresh paperfilter designed for your coffee maker.
If this pot is not work correctly still, I will suggest seeing your appliance repair technician.
