This is really a home style VPR brewer (but looks nicer)
if you listen to their video (link below) they mention it has a pre-heated tank of water already in the brewer. This means the brewer needs to be pre-filled with a full pot of water and pre-heated prior to using the brewer. Unplugging this unit won't be a problem UNLESS it was emptied of tank water and not refilled when powered up.
* The unit will try and heat up the tank of water but if empty then just air which overheats the unit then blows the thermal fuse. Call for service.
* The warmer is still working but it's not hot enough to brew frequently as the warmer may take up to an hour to get the tank hot enough to brew or it may not get hot at all if it's own thermal fuse blew too.
* Final; call for service to be safe.
Tank and tank components should be delimed regularly depending on local water conditions. Excessive mineral build-up on stainless steel surfaces can initiate corrosive reactions resulting in serious leaks.
Either leaking from tank lid or fill basin.You will need to take of top of brewer to verify.Parts and breakdown available at the Bunn website.Contact customer service at Bunn.I know at one time they would replace the brewer at a discount rate.
Depending on which maker and how old it is it may have a switch for the heating element. The BUNN brewers have a reservoir inside that needs to be topped off BEFORE energizing the heating element/plugging it in. This usually will require about 3 pots being poured through until water starts to flow from the filter basket. (Have a pot in place to catch the water) Then it is safe to plug in your machine. After it heats up (about 20 minutes) you can load your grounds and pour through a pot of COLD water and voila... coffee. Also, due to the reservoir you will want to not shut off or unplug your brewer... then it will be ready to brew next time.
I work for BUNN. Replacement parts for electrical components are not available, but your brewer has a 3-year warranty. Our customer service team can help you determine the best solution. You can contact them at 1-800-352-2866 or thru our on-line service form http://www.bunn.com/retail/service/service_form.html
This is usually caused by a missing sprayhead above your filter basket. take out the filter basket, and see if there is a sprayhead up there, or if there is just a little round pipe that the prayhead screws on to. If it is missing, you can contact your local Bunn dealer, or phone bunn directly, and they will take care of you. You can get a list of repair centers in your area at www.bunn.com
