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

1 Answer

How do you clean out a Bunn VP-17 water tank & line?

I have used this BUNN VP-17-2 coffee maker forover 10 years. Should I be concerned about mineral deposits building up on the units internal plumbing and water heated tank? Ifso, How do you go about cleaning and flushing the system and not leave **** inside the unit.

I am not having any problems with the unit, and do not want to do something that would effect my coffee taste.

(PS - more than one question was asked = more than one answer)

Can you help?

I went back and deleted all of my information.
I don't know how you got my email.
I got my issue fixed online chat group.
Friendly people that are genuinely interested.

I did not like that I went through entering all my information
AND THEN you say it will cost $$$$.
I might have signed up if you were 'up front'.
Being 'up front' is also a saying we use here a lot, it means honest.

Water discharge tube from heated tank is likely caked with mineral deposits. Bunn makes a de-liming tool for just such a problem.

Bunn vp-17 leaks around the bottom


Either a bad thermostat grommet or a bad pour in pan gasket. Either can be found on eBay for cheap. Disconnect from power, take off the top panel. Pour water in to pan and see where water comes from. Thermostat grommet pulls out easily by hand. Pan but must be removed from the tank inlet to replace gasket.

What is the best way to remove lime scale and other mineral build up from a Bunn VPR coffee maker? Water flow has been reduced to a trickle even though we used filtered water.


I always use CLR to clean my coffee maker. You don't need much more than 1/4 cup and mix with 8 cups of water and brew it like you would make a pot of coffee, then dump it out and run 2-3 more pots of just water, that should work fine. Also, run vinegar thru the machine once in awhile to help keep it clean

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!

Yes, you can get a washer from your local Bunn repair shop. For a list of repair facilities in your area, go to www.bunn.com And yes, the heat is a problem, so you can't use just any washer.

Bunn coffee maker reservoir makes a gurgling noise


THis sound is usually caused by the water being low in the tank. This can be because the machine is left on for long periods without being used. If this is not the case, then it would probably be your heating element getting small holes in it.

I would suggest descaling the unit, or replacing your thermostat.
A defective thermostat would not cut out the heater after the water is boiled, excessive scale would render the thermostat ineffective, but not to the extent you describe.

Hope this helps.

My bunn is too slow


Use the de-liming spring to clean the copper tube behind the spray head. Pour several pots of clear white vinegar through the unit to further remove lime and scale from the interior of your coffee maker. My Bunn is 24 years old, and the only replacement parts I've ever required are new carafes and the 4041 silicone washer repair kit.
