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!

After flushing, water level in bowl fills and then slowly drops.


Check to be sure small tube is flowing inside the ovefow tube. This is the water that flushes the rim holes, and refills the bowl. If you don't have flow clean or replace the float valve.

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.

Water will not drip. Lights come on... Answer Trying to clean pot. Added pot of water with vinegar. Cut it on. Everything lights up. Then Brew... (More) Trying to clean pot. Added pot of water with...


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.

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.

Watch also for how you load the upper rack. The flap opens inward and the rack has an opening to permit full opening. If this is blocked by your dishes, the flap won't open properly.
