We have a bunn omatic Model F20. It consistantly leaks by after the brewing is done, or the coffee maker is shut off. Its like a check valve is stuck slightly open, constantly dripping into the coffee pot. What can I do beside shut the water line off into the maker? We have it here at the firestation and we need our coffee. Thanks Mark

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.
More than likely could be a bad timer.Check the time of the brew cycle is consistant each time.See if the sprayhead is in place.You may also try rodding out the brew tube with a de-liming spring p.n. 1111.0000.
Yes, the coffee maker keeps a tank of water pre-heated, that is what allows it to brew coffee in a couple of minutes. The exception would be vacation (away from home) or other times when you won't be using it for a few days. Visit www.bunnomatic.com if you have lost your user manual.
When setting up a new machine, it requires 2 full decanters of water to be poured into the machine. After you have done this, then you plug the machine in and turn on the vacation switch on the side of the machine. After 15 min, then you will pour in 4-10 cups of water and it will force out the hot water from the tank in the back and brew the coffee. If this doesn't correct the problem, then please call customer service with the model and date code.
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.
When a machine leaks, it is generally an indication of a bad seal or gasket. If you will call Customer Service at 800-352-2866 with the model and date code we will be happy to help you resolve your issue.
The silicon seal inside the coffee maker tends to disintergrate. Bunn Inc. does not sell parts for the inside of the coffee makers, but a seal kit can be purchased through a small appliance repair center or repaired for a small cost. Kit is about $8.00 at most places.
