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

1 Answer

Inave a Bunn VLPF coffee brewer, water is leaking out of the top of the heating tank when in the breweing cycle. I can seal it with some caulking, but is the top of the heating tank supose to be presurized so water doesn't leak out of the thermostat gasket, high level probe gasket, etc.. Everything else is working fine. Is it the water pressure is too strong?

THe most likely answer is that the tube that leads to the sprayhead is clogged with lime. You will need to remove the spray head wich is located above the brew basket and make sure the holes are not clogged with lime. Use a wire brush to clear them. In the field I would use a deliming spring but you may need to go to a lowes or home depot to find a tool you can use to clear the tube wich is what the spray head screws onto or just goole deliming spring and try to order one off line. It is a long flecible very tightly wound dpring about 14 inches in length or so. www.midstaebeverage.com

Bunn CW Coffee Brewer not brewing enough coffee - amount is half


Have you cleaned lately, put in an empty filter and fill with cold water with a tablespoon of white/clear vinegar. Run the brew cycle, empty pot and while still worm fill with cold water again with out vinegar. Than check filter to see how much hard water chunks are in the filter. Repeat with and without vinegar tell filter is clean. One question though is there a lot of steam coming out of the top during the brewing cycle if so inside there is a tube that may be cracked, broken or came loose, have to look inside. requires opening or disassembling unit to check. REMEMBER when taking apart UNPLUG unit first.

My Bunn coffeemaker is leaking water after it stops brewing and the coffee doesn't seem to get as hot as it once did. It also only gives back 4 cups for a 6 cup brew.


if you unscrew the top there's a rubber seal in there that you might have to replace that causes the leaks. also clean your coffee maker regularly with vinegar.
my husband had to replace the seal in ours 4 times but after owning the same Bunn for 20 yrs it was time for a new one

It only makes 1/2 pot when I pour the water in after sitting over night some times it takes 2 pot of water or more to make a full pot


I recommend slowly pouring in about a half a pot of cold water without coffee in the filter basket 5 or so minutes before you brew in the morning. There are 2 good reasons to do this-
1. Overnight you are having some evaporation due to the fact that your Bunn brewer has a reservoir that keeps a couple of pots worth of water at brewing temperature... a better temp than most "home" model brewers. This will top off the reservoir and you will not "short pot" except for the amount that the grounds themselves hold back.
2. Also overnight, due to the fact that the water is kept hot, the oxygen can dissipate from the water in the tank. Topping off with fresh water will mean a fresher first pot.
The Bunn brewers have a low wattage/keep warm heater so the actual heating element isn't doing all of the work over those long periods... it only kicks on when the temperature in the reservoir drops considerably (like after brewing). Be sure to let the brewer heat back up before brewing (you will hear it stop heating)
Hope this helps.

Reservoir heats but won't dispense


If you are pouring water in the manual brew basin, then check the sprayhead holes, then the spray tube, those could be blocked. If using the auto brew, check the solenoid and or brew switch.

When i make coffee sometimes the water that comes out is cold or luke warm


The brewer has not had enough time to reach its operating temp (usually 7 mins after a brew cycle). If that is not hte case then the machine needs to be descaled.

Bunn coffee brewer leaking


Is this a lot of water, or just a small amount.

As the unit sits over time and runs heating cycles, it may have some vapor come out of the vents. That will cool and collect around the unit.

try turning the unit off for the weekends. If you still have water around the unit, then it may have a leak in the tank.

I have a Bunn model VPR, I can fill it up with water, plug it in, no water. turn it on, no water. it gets hot. I opened it up, there is no restriction. What coulf cause this?


This is a pour over unit.

You fill the tank with water, it heats the water in the tank.
When the water in the tank is at brewing temp, the lite should go out.

To brew coffee with this system, you put a filter in the brew funnel, put coffee in the filter. Place the brew funnel in the slide tabs to hold in place. put an empty decanter on the warming plate under the brew funnel. Then take one decanter of fresh water and pour it in the top of the brewer where it says "WATER ONLY" the coffee will begin brewing immediatly.

Bunn coffee maker leaks all over the counter. What


there's probably a 'silicon rubber' hose that feeds hot water to the 'grounds basket'- it may be loose, or damaged. is it leaking water, or coffee?? we have a bunn 8-cup, which has a pre-heated water tank that brews a pot in about 3 min. energy waster, but when you need coffee, you need coffee!!! is your filter holder properly centered? is the carafe lid hole clean and un-obstructed?
if it's leaking water, and not too costly to replace- you may consider replacing it with a new one!
good luck!

No manual with Bunn NHBX coffee maker.


before plugging in place your empty filter basket in the coffee maker and place a pot under it. Slowly pour in two pots of water using the pour pitcher. Now you can plug it in. it'll take 15 min to heat up first time . when you brew your first pot leave your water level a little short,because the water will expand (only the first time)

Water leaking


The silicon seal inside the coffee maker tends to disintergrate. Bunn Inc. does not sell parts for the inside of the coffee makers, but a seal kit can be purchased through a small appliance repair center or repaired for a small cost. Kit is about $8.00 at most places.
