Bunn coffee maker bt10-b is tripping gfci. I had leakage from the tank, and after fixing, the gfci problem started. I suspect the zig-zag wire that is wrapped around the bottom of the tank has some water inside

    I've taken the coffee maker apart on mine to make sure it is completely dried out. After I let it sit for a couple of days I put it back together and it works fine for a couple of days and then it starts triping the GFCI again.

The heating element inside is problably broken. Thats what mine does. just disconnect it and you will see that cures your problem. You cannot buy parts for this. I have tried already.Junk

Keeps tripping circuit breakers bunn NHb


Coffee makers have a heating unit in them which draw a lot of current. If it is on the same circuit as refrigerator, toaster and other it will trip the breaker. Also, some breakers are more sensitive than others. Have an electrician run a separate circuit for the coffee maker outlet. Try running it in the dining room outlet, which I hope is separate from the kitchen outlets. Is the house old? Older homes have a lot of mixed up wiring.

BUNN Single Satellite commercial coffeemaker trips the GFCI

Sounds like the coffee maker has a leak which is causing a ground fault inside the appliance. A very minor leak (just water vapor even) can cause this -- one that would never show itself by running out on the counter.

I would suggest taking it apart and looking for evidence of a leak.
