The first thing I would check is the thermostat setting. if you are at a higher altitude water boils at a lower temperature. The correct setting for your altitude can be found in the user's manual or on the button support site if you don't have one. the temperature inside the tank can be found by removing the small vent line from the top of the tank and inserting a thermometer and the thermostat can be adjusted by turning the small screw inside we tube sticking out of the thermostat at least that's the way it is an old machine I'm not familiar with the newer thermostats. hello jack is how long it's been since the unit was cleaned. Scale buildup inside the tank can insulate the thermostat from reading the correct temperature of the water. There is an answer about cleaning this type of machine here on fixya. I write this is soo mean that the dinner is out of warranty since if it is it hard to you then certainly having it repaired but would be the best option.

It sounds like the thermostat needs to be change. it is located under the top of the unit. Should be on the left side under the lid. Visit this link to get an idea of the part..http://www.ereplacementparts.com/thermostat-kit-p-847667.html.

SOURCE: my bunn coffee maker leaks

You need to replace the washer kit inside the top of the maker. Remove the 3 screws that fasten the top and lift it off. You will see the rocker leaver that allows the water to flow into the tank. At the point where the rocker stops the water there is a series of washers that degrade from the heat over time and allows the leak. The washers are very easy to replace. The problem is finding the washer kit. I found it at: www.buyitnow64.com for $3.95 plus shipping (FedEx is only $9.98). I bought 2 (one for backup) kits.The original washers lasted almost 6 years. I had repaired this problem before with a washer from my shop but it broke down rather quickly from the direct heat from the tank. This washer kit is a Bunn washer kit that is supposed to fit all Bunn machines both residential and commercial.
Hope this helps. It took me 2 hours on line to find the washers!

SOURCE: Bunn VPS Series Commercial coffee maker won't brew

Hello. I would like to suggest that you pour in water, with a container under the funnel, until water does come out, it sounds like the water has just evaporated too far, and it requires more than a pot to bring it to the top. In the future, if you do not use it for a day or more, you need to unplug it, or just pour a pot of water in to keep it at level, as this unit heats all the time it is plugged in, and can actually evaporate all the water away, blow the element, damage the thermostat, or worse permanently damage the unit.

here you can find the user manual:

Hope that helps, and thank you.

SOURCE: water wont come out of my bunn coffee maker

The first pot of water you put in the coffee maker just fills the water tank which is then heated up , once it gets to temperature you then pour second pot of water this pushes the hot water out of the tank through the coffee grounds into the waiting pot. This way you can make coffee faster than a regular coffee maker.

Bunn pour omatic commercial coffee maker will not brew and it leaks


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.

I need to prime the water circuit. How do I do this?


Hi. Turn your machine on and open the steam/hot water function as the machine starts to heat. This will allow the air to be released from the water circuit, and water to fill the circuit. You may have to wait for the machine to heat before it will allow you to operate the steam/hot water function, but this is how you do it. Just keep doing this proceedure until water starts to come out of the outlet. The pump will sound noisey at the start, but will quiten down once the water has filled it. Hope thishas helped. Enjoy your coffee. Dazza Repairer

Our Keurig is in Australia using a transformer for voltage. Brand new and keeps telling us to prime ????


Hi. Open the steam/hot water outlet while it is heating. This allows the air to come out, and water to fill the water circuit. The pump will be noisy at first, but will quiten when water has filled it. Good luck and enjoy your coffee. Dazza. Repairer 0401 200 901. Queensland

I have the grind and brew thermal coffeemaker. The water does not get hot enough for steam to come off of the coffee when it is poured.


Hi, I have owned that coffee maker for years.
After it brews coffee, it does not have a warmer to keep it hot. It has a thermally insulated carafe. Such as regular lunchbox thermos jugs have. The reasoning behind this is that coffee heated after it is brewed spoils in a short time. (Of course, unheated coffee gets cold).
What that translates to for you with regard to no steam is this. As soon as the coffee maker finishes brewing your coffee, open the top of the carafe, stick in a spoon and stir it.Then pour it. (I learned the stirring part working in a restaurant).
If you have to wait before you drink it, do the same. Stir it first.
Hope this has been helpful
Love that grinder!
Best Regards,
Mark

1: do you pres the switch for steam and wait until it is ready? 2: how long time machine needs to be ready for steaming?
solution 1 = if you don't press the steam switch on you will have very small amount of steam. solution 2 = if the machine gets ready only for few seconds to steam, than you must change your steaming thermostat attached in boiler(there are 3 of them: 1 security 2 coffee brewing 3 steam
i hope you fix it soon and enjoy in perfect espresso

Water heats up but doesn't come out. Turned it off and poured out the water but the problem is still there.


First of all Have u tested with out he top on to see if the water heats up quickly, Next make sure where the water should come out is not clogged.

also make sure you fill the water inside leaving and inch from the top. test the maker again and let sit for 20 minutes then unscrew top to see if steam is coming out.

if this is a new product it either is defective....

If u want to repair the object on your own I suggest taking it apart completely because there has to be blockage...if this is not an option for you then buy a new one because or use the garuntee.

Cuisinart DCC1000 coffee maker


At the bottom of the reservoir there is a hole the water flows through to the heater. When my coffeemaker did what yours does it was because a little valve that sits in that hole had popped out, and after tamping it back in it solved the problem. The valve is supposed to keep the hot water from going back up into the reservoir. Without it the water backs up, causing the steam to shoot up as you know, and heats up the water in the reservoir. This causes the thermostat to turn it off prematurely. The valve can come out of the hole either if the coffeemaker is turned upside down, or if there is a major buildup of mineral deposits that need to be flushed out -- they can overheat and cause too much back-pressure to the valve. Flush it with vinegar and push the valve back in as tight as you can, then be careful if you turn it upside down.
