My new coffee pot leaks, I think Bunn wants to go out of business. I have gone through 3 pots in like 3 years, I can't afford to keep trying thinking they will be as good as they once were. And they sure were good a quit a long time ago. I hate the mess, but refused to buy another, and now they made them I believe even less friendly for one to work on them at home as far as fixing the leaking.

Re: coffee pot leaking
Your brewer has a 3 year warranty. If you will call customer service with the model and code date and it is less than 3 years old, we will replace it with a new machine at no cost. If it is over 3 years old, we will replace it at a reduced price.

VPR is a pour over "Volume Displacement" brewer. Required to completely fill the inner tank and heat prior to using brewer. BEFORE plugging in unit, water must be poured into upper tray and with brew funnel and empty pot in place. Keep pouring water into top fill tray until water drips out of brew funnel. Plug in VPR and allow it 15-20 mins to heat up. leave the pot as there may be additional water dripping. Remove power if there is any water spilling out from other places like the top pan cover or bottom of machine. With the initial heating done, take a full pot of water and slowly pour into the top filling tray. HOT steaming water should come out of the brew funnel to fill the (empty) pot. Prep is done and the machine can be used to brew a pot after 10-15mins of reheat time.
*** the machine you have needs to be checked for leaks in areas mentioned above. Water should only come out of brew funnel (if not present then the brew head or if that is missing then the brew pipe. All will need to be replaced prior to brewing.) Leaking under machine is an indication of leak(s) in pour tray,tank,tank cover, gasket, probe gasket. This machine like any used equipment should be checked out by qualified tech prior to use. Be aware that coffee vendors sometimes rent or loan brewers to customers.
Most likely the problem is in the water intake area. I have the same problem, I took my machine apart, removing the top revealed a plastic water chamber which leads to a connector that lets the water go into the heating chamber. The seal had become brittle, and the plastic water chamber also was degenerating where it met the heated water chamber. I replaced the rubber seal and that worked the first time, however, I think the plastic has now deteriorated to the point that I will need a new reservoir piece and a new seal. It's probably time to send in the unit for repair.
I think one repair for a 25-30 year old coffee maker sin't such a bad deal!
Please get the model and date code located on the bottom of the brewer. The machine has a 3 year limited warranty. If the machine is 3 years or less, the machine will be replaced at no cost. If it is over 3 years, then it can be replaced at a reduced cost.

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!
It sounds like you have a broken seal/gasket. Please get the model and date code located on the bottom of the machine and call customer service. The machine has a 3 year warranty so if it is 3 years old or less, it will be replaced at no cost. If it is over 3 years old, it will be replaced at a discounted price.
If might not be the thermal pot, it is possible it is the machine itself. If you have a candy or meat thermometer, place it in the pot as soon as the coffee has completed brewing. The temperature should be at 175-185 degrees. If it isn't, then the machine needs replaced. If the temperature is correct, then please call customer service with the model and date code to get the thermal carafe replaced. If the temp isn't correct, and it is 3 years old or less, the machine will be replaced for no cost. If it is over 3 years old, it can be replaced at a reduced price.
What's happening is that it isn't leaking, it's boiling over. You need to turn down the thermostat under the top lid. Also, before you brew coffee, add water to the tank and let it pour into an empty pot. Once it stops brewing, let it heat up for a few minutes then make your pot of coffee.
