Question about Bunn 10 Cup Home Coffee Brewer
About it started leaking month ago.we also just started usseing hard water, how do you clean the inside of the tank.

If you're talking about the model shown in your picture, the leak is most likely between the water reservoir and the tank. Bunn uses a soft silicone seal for that connection that gets compressed over time and starts to leak water whenever you make a pot of coffee.
It's planned obsolescence. Bunn won't sell you a new seal. So you have to improvise. But it's simple enough to do.
Remove the top cover and the plastic water reservoir right below it. Don't tamper with the little valve that opens when you close the lid.
Look for the seal. It could be stuck to the bottom of the reservoir, or sitting loosely on top of the metal tank. Make sure to preserve its top-to-bottom orientation (don't put it back in upside down).
Apply a narrow bead of clear silicone into the grooved side of the seal. Press the seal gently onto the reservoir, then apply a thin layer to the smooth side.
Re-install the reservoir and reassemble the unit.

It sounds like a broken seal/gasket. If you will get the model and date code and contact customer service, we will be able to properly assist you in resolving this problem. The machine carries a 3 year warranty so if it is 3 years old or less, it will be replaced at no cost. If it is over 3 years old, it will be replaced at a reduced cost.
