The A10 has a semi-sealed tank that keeps +1 pot of water heated and ready to brew. Pouring in a full pot of cold water will fill the top tray and allow a slow trickle of cold water into the top which forces hot water to over flow into the brew basket. This continues until all the cold water drains into the heater tank. So the brew is matched volume per volume. UNLESS the tank was empty or not filled prior to brewing. Follow the brewing instructions from Bunn (on line for *FREE* download at Bunn.com)
* If it leaks (from the bottom) only when you pour in water. Then your pouring it too fast and over flowing the fill tray. slowdown, watch the level in the tray. do not fill past the lid.
* If it leaks just sitting (not brewing) then there is a hole in the tank. Call for service.
* If it leaks after filling the tray half way. then the top of the tank has a leak, loose, cracked, or missing gasket. There is quite a few gaskets on the lid. Call for service.
* Final; Leaks are always bad around electrical equip. Best to unplug and call for service to be safe.

PS. Check your using the correct size decanter for this brewer. If it's a 10 cup brewer then make sure all the decanters in the office is also 10 cup. Pouring a 12 cup pot into brewer will have 12 cups of coffee come out (over flowing the 10 cup pot.) Note that not all decanters are made the same size. Other brands may be different. Test by filling a pot with water (from faucet) then pouring directly into pot in question. It should match and not under fill nor over fill.

SOURCE: machine overfilling

Sounds like the timer is not working correctly. Bunn carries a good supply of replacement parts.

SOURCE: the machine isn't just overfilling, it does not

Remove the front panel and use the instructions there to set volume, if that does not work then the level board is damaged.

Why does my keurig k10 leak?


It has an overfill tray to catch water when you put in more than 10 oz. When that tray becomes full it seems like the machine is leaking but the tray is just overflowing. Empty the overfill tray and try not to overfill. Learned this the hard way.

Fl code is on


Hello there and welcome to FIXYA
The FL error code means:
Flood Condition:FL flashes if any overfill condition occurs. This condition occurs when excessive water in the tub causes the overfill switch to trip. The control must realize that the trip was due to an overfill condition instead of a suds lack condition in order for FL to be displayed

With an overfill condition, the beeper repeats a warning every 10 seconds with no time-out. The pump is cycled in drain mode for 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off until the overfill switch resets or power is discontinued to the unit.

Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

This problem i see on these are the water pumps getting clogged with lint or other things, causing the pump not to pump all of the water out at times.

The water is overfill


Hi

Overfilling is caused when either the water inlet valve or water level switch is bad. When any of these parts goes bad it won't shut off the water and so cause overfilling. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

This problem I see on these are the water pumps getting clogged with lint or other things, causing the pump not to pump all of the water out at times.

There is a check "valve" in the drain assembly that seems to sometimes cause problems with the FL error code. You can remove this piece, and might avoid changing the pump.

Can not clear the FL code. Want to fix machine don't know where to start. Diagrams would be helpful.


This is a flood condition.


"FL" flashes if any overfill condition occurs. This condition occurs when excessive water in the tub causes the overfill switch to trip. The control must realize that the trip was due to an overfill condition instead of a suds lock condition in order for "FL" to be displayed.

With an overfill condition, the beeper repeats a warning every 10 seconds with no time out. The pump is cycled in drain mode for 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off until the overfill switch resets or power is discontinued to the unit.

Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

If it continues, simply replace the over fill switch.

Washer will overfill on small load and large


If this happens only on small load cycle , then it can be a faulty timer board.

however check also the water level switch, when there is overfilling this part is always the first suspect.

Washing machine overfills with water at start up after two years in use.


If the washing machine operates and cycles correctly, and only problem is overfills, then you have a bad water level switch or a bad membrane sensor (water level sensor).

If instead the machine get stuck on filling, and does not stop even if you advance timer, then the inlet valve is stuck on open, or the control board is faulty.

If machine is only two years old, call manufacturer and complain, even id limited warranty is one year, they may cover the part cost the same if they decide this was a factory defect (if it is inlet valve) coming up after two years.
