Question about Bunn Pour-Omatic Coffeemaker, 10 Cup White

1 Answer

Bunn coffee maker reservoir makes a gurgling noise

Wehn I refill the reservoir of my Bunn coffee maker, it makes a loud, kind of loud boiling sound, almost popping..it is still working fine but I wonder if it is the heating element starting to go out. Or does something need cleaned? I think it is about 4-5 years old. It is a 10 cup home model.

    Actually I found out it was needing a good dose of vinegar. When I cleaned it well, it quit making sounds and works perfectly. In the meantime I had bought a new Bunn but kept it in the box until the old one gave up the ghost. Thanks for you help. My coffee pot never seems to get left on long without making coffee as we always turn it off when out of town.

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.

Very loud when heating

It's the sound of the water expanding quickly as it's nearing its boiling point amplified by the enclosed water tank inside. Normal.

Brewstation sounds like its boiling coffee after it's finished

It sounds like the sensor that switches from brew to keep warm is faulty... so it keeps boiling after it's brewed.
My suggestion to you is to clean it it with vinegar. The following link shows how to clean a ten-cup model. Just use smaller amounts for the six-cup model.
Good luck

Are you leaving the machine on all the time? If not, you need to turn it on and leave on for 15 minutes before brewing a pot of coffee. If you will get the model and date# from the bottom of the brewer and give us a call we will be happy to assist you with this.

What makes the water reservoir all of a sudden start to boil real hard and warp the top lid that screws on it? how can we fix it?

This is usually caused by the thermostat allowed the machine to boil the water. We offer an out-of-warranty exchange to get a new machine. If you will call customer service at 800-352-2866, we will be happy to assist you in getting a new machine.

I just get bunn VPS it is and work very good

The switches are for the "warmers" only. The brewer has a reservoir the keeps water hot and ready for brewing. When it is not re-heating water (after brewing) it has a "keep warm" heater that is low voltage and keeps it ready to go.

My Bunn is taking forever to brew and the coffee

It sounds like the thermostat might be allowing the water to boil and cause the grounds to be scorched and making your coffee bitter. It also could be caused by the machine needing to be cleaned and delimed. I would recommend you do this first-and if you don't have the use and care manual, you may call Customer Service to have one sent out or access one at www.bunn.com @ home, then products.

Why does the coffee maker make a loud noise right before it brews the coffee?

Usually this is the expansion of steam as the heating element quickly rises to the preset temperature. This process heats the water to the correct temperature and causes the water to flow upward from the water reservoir. Then out the brewing spout over the coffee grounds.

It will usually make strange noises at the end of this cycle too.
The water is used up and remaining steam is vented.
Sounds more like a burping and last minute gurgle really. :)

Hope this helps!

I have a bunn coffee maker, BT10-13. The reserve water takes very long to reheat after making a pot of coffee. Thus I can't make a second pot of coffee for a long time.

Are you rapid firing your coffee maker?Not designed to do that.. If the water heated that fast it would boil dry if you ever left it unattended and on. The reservoir is heated with the time it takes to drink a full pot taken into consideration for reheating.. If you are serving 20 cups with a 10 cup machine, Expect a delay, especially if you are refilling with cold tap water. Sorry.
