Hi, you can go to, and select for home or commercial units, and get an 800 number to call for service and parts. If they cannot help you a appliance repair shop should be able to get you going, thank you.

I called Bunn and they were not helpful at all! I wound up putting silicone (it is not hot enough here to matter) on it, and after it cured, it was great! We have been using it at the Office for almost a year with no problems. I just made sure I did not get any on the part that acts as the "valve."

    Bunn would not sell me parts! I do not know what to do for parts, unless you try to find a substitute. I am sorry I can not be of more help there. I did finally buy another pot....and I bought a Bunn. It had lasted near 10 years. I figured it money well spent.

Bunn pour omatic commercial coffee maker will not brew and it leaks

VPR is a pour over "Volume Displacement" brewer. Required to completely fill the inner tank and heat prior to using brewer. BEFORE plugging in unit, water must be poured into upper tray and with brew funnel and empty pot in place. Keep pouring water into top fill tray until water drips out of brew funnel. Plug in VPR and allow it 15-20 mins to heat up. leave the pot as there may be additional water dripping. Remove power if there is any water spilling out from other places like the top pan cover or bottom of machine. With the initial heating done, take a full pot of water and slowly pour into the top filling tray. HOT steaming water should come out of the brew funnel to fill the (empty) pot. Prep is done and the machine can be used to brew a pot after 10-15mins of reheat time.
*** the machine you have needs to be checked for leaks in areas mentioned above. Water should only come out of brew funnel (if not present then the brew head or if that is missing then the brew pipe. All will need to be replaced prior to brewing.) Leaking under machine is an indication of leak(s) in pour tray,tank,tank cover, gasket, probe gasket. This machine like any used equipment should be checked out by qualified tech prior to use. Be aware that coffee vendors sometimes rent or loan brewers to customers.

Bunn 10 cup home coffee brewer is leaking from the bottom area. Any ideas on how to repair this?

These models have a plastic pour-in tray just under the top lid. The plastic on these trays gets brittle over time with the heating and cooling, and they crack where they mount to the tank. The only real way to repair this is to replace the pour-in tray, but these are not sold anywhere that I have found. You might be able to find a used one at a Bunn dealer in your area.
I have seen some people do a temporary repair by putting a washer under the mounting bolt and sealing it with silicone, but this is a temp. fix at best. By the way, the reason that the water appears to be coming from the bottom of the machine is that there is no other place for the water to come out after it leaks from the top.

Leaks water from the top resevoire

Either your fill tank is clogged, or your washer seal is cracked. You will need to remove the top of your Bunn to access this area. In the resevoir you will see a large nut with a drain hole. First try clearing the hole with a tooth pick and pour water in the basin. If it flows you have good drainage. Now, with the top still removed, pour water in the basin while checking for leaks. If a leak is present you should remove your drain nut and inspect the clear white looking washer on the underside. If it is cracked you can replace it with a gasket from Bunn. If you are tight on time and cash, a non rubber heat proof water hose gasket will suffice until yours arrives from Bunn. Replace and re-tighten the basin and drain nut (do not over tighten) .

Our coffee maker is leaking. bunn b10. i see they make a kit with silicon washers but how do i get to them to replace?

Hello, goto for replacement parts. The most likely reason for the leak is the gasket between the pour tray and the tank. If you cant get parts from bunn there is a company call holiday house in cali that will sell you the parts you need. Mike

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.

Bunn blows fuses

This is usually caused by the tray where you pour in the water leaking where it mounts down to the tank. it's probably cracked just enough to allow water to seep out, crossing wires on top of the tank, causing a dead short. There is also a seal that goes between the pour-in tray and the tank that sometimes starts to leak. This tray can be replaced if you can find a used machine that doesn't have the same problem. Before you buy one, though, you should take the top of your brewer off, remove the pour-in tray (careful - they get brittle over time) and look on the top of the tank for signs of water seepage. If there are no signs, then your heating element is most likely blown.

Bunn Coffee maker

your problem is caused by the pour-in tray leaking where it mounts to the tank. There should be 2 screws under the pour-in lid, and a third toward the rear of the brewer. if you take them out & lift up carefully, you can see the pour-in tray. in the bottom of the tray, there is a bolt that mounts the tray to the tank. If you remove that, you can lift the pour-in tray out. Be careful, as these trays get brittle over time, and are prone to cracking.
