* Bunn model # for specific solutions.
* Most Pro/Office models have a pre-heated tank.
* Most models (Without Vacation or heater switch) will be heated all the time.
* Care must be taken to keep the inner tank filled.
* Pour cold water into fill tray till water comes out of the brew basket.
* Water will stop coming out of brewer once the tank has been topped off.
* If pot is not able to brew after 20 mins of pre-heating. Then call for service.
* Note; most office and Pro machines used in food establishments are from coffee vendors. The larger machines should be serviced by qualified Bunn service techs.
* Contact your coffee vendor or Bunn service ctr for advice.
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.
Try really cleaning the basket that the water and coffee or cocao goes into. If you don't really clean it well, it will have the taste of the last thing brewed mixed in with the new brew. Coffee followed by coffee should not be a problem, but coffee followed by cocao will give the cocao a coffee taste, and visa versa.
I work for BUNN. Has your issue been resolved? The rocker arm is inside the pour in bowl (where you pour in the water for brewing). To get to it you have to take off the entire top lid (not just the spin lid above the pouring area). That can be removed by lifting it up and then you simply snap it back on when you are finished. Hope this helps.
The noise can occur when there is a heavy buildup of calcium on the heater coil. This causes the coil to get much hotter since the layer of calcium acts as an insulator and the water may come to a boil because the coil rises to a high temperature trying to heat the water.
Unless it is too clogged, this may help; empty the water out completely, then put two cups of regular vinegar in the water chamber and turn on the power for a half-minute or until liquid appears in the pot.
Let it sit overnight and then let the remaining vinegar pump through.
You will have to run several pots of water through the machine or have some really strange-tasting coffee.
There are commercial products that act more quickly and thoroughly than vinegar but also much more caustic.
before plugging in place your empty filter basket in the coffee maker and place a pot under it. Slowly pour in two pots of water using the pour pitcher. Now you can plug it in. it'll take 15 min to heat up first time . when you brew your first pot leave your water level a little short,because the water will expand (only the first time)
