Question about Bunn VPR Coffee Maker
The water keeps heating and the steam and water comes out the top of the coffee maker.
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!

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.

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.

Please get the model and the date code from the bottom of the machine and contact customer serivce. Depending on the date code, there might be a seal kit available or the machine can be replaced at no cost if 3 years old or less.
