Hi, W/D here.
To get your Bunn working again, place a filter into the basket, fill the reservoir, and allow it to begin dispensing into the carafe. This will take several pots of water to get it filled and overflowing (dispensing). Plug it in, and let the reservoir heat up. It's not necessary at this point to have the heating plate turned on, but you can do so if desired to check that it is working, then turn it back off. Once you hear the reservoir heating up, pour in 8 ounces of white vinegar, and let the machine dispense into the carafe. Place an additional 8 ounces of white vinegar into the carafe, and pour back into the reservoir. Let the water heat up again, and let the vinegar solution sit in the reservoir for about 30 minutes. Top off the carafe with cool water and allow the carafe to cool with the warming plate turned off. After the 30 minutes, pour the contents of the carafe back into the reservoir, and it will dispense again. The water in the reservoir will heat up again. Check the coffee filter for residue. If you see a lot of grainy material, change the filter, and repeat the cycle until the filter comes out clean. Save your old filters as you go. Lay them out in order on paper towels, and you'll be able to mark your progress. When the filters clear up, discontinue recycling the vinegar solution and, instead, fill the reservoir with fresh water. The sediment has by now been freed up (de-scaled) and will continue to come off in smaller and smaller quantities. Each time you place fresh water in the machine, the dispensed liquid will smell less and less like vinegar. When no vinegar odor can be detected, you are finished.
Best regards, --W/D--

I have a bunn cwtf twin,I put new ready lights on both side work for about a week and the they wont light up. and the side the the faucet only brews warm coffee. but the other side does find. HELP


The green ready lights do not last that long. We never replace them on units we service. They are cheaply made. Each side of this coffee maker has its own thermostat. Check to make sure the thermostat is on all the way. If it is check the voltage on the warm side. Make sure it is in the 208v area. This warm problem is 85% the thermostat not set right and or needs replacing.

Coffee is in water is in nothing happens


You may not have enough water in the tank.
Follow these steps

1. With the coffee pot unplugged, fill your resevoir/tank until water begins pouring out of your sprayhead and brew basket.
2. Wait for the water to finish dripping then plug in your Bunn.
3. Let your Bunn warm up for at least 8 minutes.
4. Run a test cycle with clean water, remembering to use the water pitcher provided for this purpose, while leaving your empty pot on the burner beneath the brew basket.
5. If your cycle completed, and your coffee pot is filled to the desired level you are ready to make coffee.

Remember that these Bunn models have no water filter2_bing.gif installed, so, the cleaner the water the better tasting the coffee.

Check your water supply lines if your unit is hooked directly into a water supply. Your unit either has to be cleaned (de-limed) or your water source is bad. You could try using filtered water, but if you have residue inside the unit it must be flushed with a professional delimer if white vinegar doesn't do the trick.

Bunn SRU Coffee Urn


all bunn-o-matics have a cleaning spring that goes into the water tube once you unscrew the sprayhead. if you want to take the unit apart go this route. unplug the unit. remove the sprayhead. remove the two screws atop the unit and there's a brass fitting that screws into the canister's top. remove this then remove the tray. when you have the top off you'll see the canister that holds the water. it holds three potfulls of water. there's two wires that go down around the canister. this is the warm element. on top of the canister is a round dime like device. this is the brew sensor and disconnects the main element when a pot is brewed. in one corner you'll see the thermostat. this determines the brew pot temperature. there's a cappillary that goes down inside the canister. where the sprayhead is is a nut. remove this and the whole canister can be removed. you'll find after you remove the top of the canister that deposits are hard caked along the inside walls of the canister where the warmer element is located. scrape this off. replacement parts can be had at the bunn site.

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.
