My first response would be to say that you need to put 8 oz. less water in - but that's the obvious and somewhat comical solution. But here's what you need to do:

Take the top cover off (1 std. screw on top) and pull the brown water tray out. turn the unit on its side and clean the heating elements! You most likely have huge calcium deposits in the water tank. Scrape the elements but be careful not to bend the thin wires leading out of the tank (they're paperclip thin and will break if bent back and forth.

After cleaning the elements and tank, remove the drip spout (turn counter clockwise to unscrew) and clean, then clean the red tube hose in the center by pushing a wire (coat hangar thick) down through the middle.

Reassemble and pour two, almost full, pots of water into the tank, this is the default level needed to start brewing. When you pour your third pot in, that is the amount of coffee you will get minus whatever your filter soaks up. Hope this helps - good luck!

How do you adjust the water level


After the first brew the machine should brew excactly the amount of water added to the water reservoir. Since the reservoir always keep half full then you should add the maximum amount you need in two steps.

No pot or instructions, how much water do you put in the coffee pot?Need a replacement pot for vp17 series. thank you


You should be able to pick up a replacement/new pot at your nearest Restaurant Supply store. Make sure you get a 64 oz./ 1/2 gallon pot.
Before plugging in your brewer, unscrew the sprayhead located just above where the filter basket sits and replace the basket, pour 3 pots of cold water through the opening on the top if the brewer is empty. This brewer has a reservoir that holds about 2 1/2 pots of water at brewing temperature when heated. Make sure you put an empty pot under the filter basket after pouring in the water. Water will flow from the brew basket when the reservoir has reached its capacity. Once water flows you can then plug in and energize your brewer and replace the sprayhead. It will take about 15 to 20 minutes for the brewer to reach brew temp, you will hear the heating stop. Put an empty filter and a dose of coffee (I recommend starting with a heaping measuring cup of drip ground coffee) into the filter basket, lightly shake it level, replace the basket and pour through 1 full pot of COLD water in the top. For best results pour the brewed coffee into a pre-heated thermal server if you plan on holding the coffee for more than 10 minutes or so.
Enjoy!

Does not dispense enough water. I get about 2 ounces of coffee at a time. How do I adjust the water level?


When was the last time the unit was descaled? A build up of scale will gradually restrict and then stop the water flow.

The heater element is receiving no voltage. This is likely to be a failed thermal fuse which is normally welded to one end of the heater element making it necessary to replace the heater assembly. These thermal fuses are now made (apparently exclusively) in China and are of miserable quality. These are constructed to melt open (inside) when a design temperature is reached. Most of them seem to fail when they feel like it, regardless of temperature.
We once lost two identical coffee makers in three days due to this problem and took a refund instead of a third pot.

After brewering the level in the pot is a little low .


We could have 2 things going, the easiest is to remove the spray head, and using the deliming spring clean out the brew tube.
The hard way is to check the water level, brew 2 pots to check level, if you get the exact amount in both pots, then wee will program the brewer. Depending the model you might have a timer knob behind panel or a circuit board.
If timer knob then turn to a longer time settings.
If a circuit board the settings and instruction are pasted on the front label.

Saeco portafilter instructions


When using ground coffee, use coarser grind like the size of table salt grain. Feel the ground coffee for adjustment. Do not tamp, just level the cup with coffee grounds and lock the portafilter into the group ring. Pull the handle all the way to the right and hold. Turn espresso hot water switch on. Hold the portafilter pulled all the way to the right for 5 seconds (pre-infusion pressure builds up to 9 bars). Release the handle at the end of 5 seconds. Espresso shots should be max. 2-Oz. in the cup. For larger quantity, use two shots. For an Americano, add hot water instead of allowing 8-Oz. water to pump through the coffee grounds.

How do I set the amount of water dispensed w/ Bunn CDBCF35 Digita


Hello. You will need to set the timer, this is done, if the settings are not locked out, using the brew button on the front, holding it until 3 clicks are heard, then just let it brew until you are satisfied with the level, and turn the brew off. This does take a little practice, and may need to be done repeatedly, and you should be prepared for overflowing, just in case :) Here is a link to your manual, please read the section that is for your unit, as it is for several.

Hope that helped, thank you.

Coffee is weak


Check where the water comes out under the brew filter. It sounds like you may be missing the sprayhead. It is a round metal or plastic piece that is screwed on to the water dispense area and acts like a little showerhead forcing water evenly over the coffee grounds. If it is missing, the coffee will be weak. Check the water temperature. If it isn't hot enough, the coffee will be weak.

Will not fill pot


Most likely you have some lime-scale build-up. When you brew a pot, it only brews the same amount of water that it takes in. When the inlet is restricted with scale, not enough water is let in for a full pot. You've adjusted the timer, so when you clear the inlet, you should set it back down so you don't overflow the pot.
It also could be just something cought in the inlet orifice (result is the same). Either way, start where the water is connected to the machine and go from there. Sorry I can't be more specific, scale is an elusive devil.
In the future, try using soft water.

Good luck
