Question about Bunn Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines
Sorry this brewer is usually set up for a full pot brew. I have reset this for a small (but not half) pot brew as the customer wanted to use a metal carafe (with their own logo). I also tried once to get it to half pot brew but it can get tricky if you actually brew twice to get a full pot (in the same pot).
* there is a siphon action that starts once the boiler tank gets filled to a certain point. From that point it will continue to flow until the boiler is emptied to the level that stops the siphon action and leaves enough water in boiler to reheat for the next brew. Achieving the siphon point may be a larger volume of water for 1/2 a pot but may work for 3/4ths a pot. The 1/2 way mark may be affected by the brewers "level" while placed on a table or sagging in the middle of a weak table.
* Usually if you want a smaller brew then go with a smaller brewer. Though there is a hot water tap that will give you 2-4 cups of hot water (it gets tepid after that) which you can use for the "Mug" style brew. But it does get messy.ukeboy57
* Final, If you don't mind a little more than 1/2 pot brews then ask your vendor to adjust the machine for you. Though a reminder NOT the double brew in the same pot as it will overflow.

Are you leaving the machine plugged in all of the time? If not, you need to. The machine takes approximately 10 minutes to get to full temperature the first time then the water should stay hot from then on. Or it could be that you just need to turn up the thermostat. No, the water won't get hotter sitting on the burner and the coffee won't taste as good if the water you are brewing with isn't hot enough.
To get to the thermostat, unplug the machine and take the two screws on the top lid off. You should see a box that has a knob or a T sticking out of it. Turn it up a little bit, put the lid back on and let the heat up for a little while (10 - 15 minutes). Try brewing with just plain water. If it still isn't hot enough, repeat the steps above. Make sure you don't turn up the thermostat so much that the water boils.

There is a brew timer on the left side of your machine near the heater switch. you need to remove an access panel to access it. turn this down a little, let the water heat up, then try another brew. Adjust as needed, brewing another pot between each setting.

It sounds like you have a broken seal/gasket. Please get the model and date code located on the bottom of the machine and call customer service. The machine has 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 discounted price.

This machine has a reservoir that holds about 2.5 pots and keeps them at brewing temperature. Therefore you should pour in 3 pots (with a pot in place under the filter basket) until water flows from the basket. Then, and ONLY then, it is safe to plug in the brewer. If you plug in the brewer BEFORE filling the reservoir you will burn up the heating element and will have to have it replaced.
After the initial filling and heat up (about 20 minutes) you are ready to pour through a pot of COLD water through and brew.
