Question about Bunn GR10 Coffee Maker
I had the same problem. On mine (and probably yours) the problem was the seal between the (upper) plastic water reservoir and the lower (metal) heating reservoir. No replacement seal is available.
I fixed mine by coating both sides of the old seal with aquarium grade clear silicone sealer - available at pet supply stores. Just a light (1/16") coating is all that's required. Carefully re-assemble and allow the sealer to cure for 24 hours.
I did that over a year ago, and it hasn't leaked a drop ever since.

Please give Customer Service a call with the model and date code. If the machine is 3 years old or less, it will be replaced with a new machine. If it is older than 3 years, it can be exchanged for a reduced price.

The fill Tank is plastic and degrades over time. I bought a large rubber washer from local plumbing store to fill the void and seal the leak. The problem has returned and I need to replace the water fill tank completely. If possible??!!!. When to take the top of you will see a large screw with a hole in it, that is were the leaks occur.

Experiencing same problem. Appears there may be a recall depending on your model and production date. I suspect it is the small seal washer where top fill tube attaches to the top of the tank. Water leaking here would flow done inside the round steel body and leak out bottom.

There are 3 seals in your unit that could cause your problem. there is a silicon seal right under the pour-in tray, and two on the top of the tank. one of those is for the thermostat, the other is for the sprayhead tube. any of these could leak, causing water to come out the bottom of the brewer. One other thing that can cause this is a scale buildup between the pour-in tray and the tank.

Please get the model and the date code from the bottom of the machine and contact customer serivce. Depending on the date code, there might be a seal kit available or the machine can be replaced at no cost if 3 years old or less. If it is over 3 years old and the seal kit isn't available, the machine will be replaced at a reduced price.
