Your water tank is not full. The way your Bunn Pour-O-Matic VPR works is there's a holding tank for the water and it isn't actually brewing with the water you just poured into it. Instead, it is using the holding tank water. If the holding tank gets low and you pour water into it then all it does is fill the tank but nothing will come out. Unplug your coffee machine and make sure there is a pot underneath to catch water. Pour water into the tank until it starts flowing out

Why does my mr. Coffee decanter leak?


First I'm not a Mr. Coffee tech but I have worked on similar machines.
* Most decanters are made of tempered glass and unless cracked it should not leak.
* Most overflowing pots are caused by over filling brewing tank. This can be caused by re-pouring additional water into the brew tank. (automatic brewers may have a leaking water valve - call your vendor for service)
* Partial brewing (taking coffee from a brewing pot) and then putting in more water.
* Removing the pot BEFORE it stops dripping. It leaves a puddle of coffee on the warmer plate
*Over filling the water tank. Most times the extra water will spill out the back. But some may overflow into the basket area then the warmer plate.
* Follow the MFR brewing instructions for filling.
* All brewers should stop water drips after brewing. If you get a constant drip AFTER brewing then have the brewer checked or replaced. Call your vendor.

Why does coffee come out while pouring in water its a bunn 10 cup coffee maker


The Bunn has a little stopper that closes the water drain port in the reservoir while the lid is open. You can see a little white plastic pin protruding up out of the grate with the lid open. When you close the lid, it pushes on that pin which causes the stopper to lift off the drain port, allowing the water in the reservoir to enter the heating tank.

If water is entering the coffee basket BEFORE the lid is closed, then something is wrong with that little stopper. It may have a chunk of debris on it preventing it from sealing, or it may be deteriorated, torn, disconnected, etc.

Only way to know is to remove the the screws in the grate and pull the top off exposing the reservoir, and the stopper assembly. The little plastic flapper disc should be seated in the reservoir drain port. It should be relatively flat (not wrinkled) and covering the drain port completely. Test it by pouring some water into the reservoir. If it drains out without you activating the stopper, then a repair is needed.

Move the lever up and down and check its operation. The arm must move freely and close when released. There should be no dirt or debris on the sealing surface of the flapper nor on the sealing surface of the drain port. Gently clean with vinegar as necessary. If the seal is damaged, then a replacement is required.

Why is there coffee on the burner, after coffee brews?


The flow control valve on the strainer basket (where the coffee pours into the pot) is a less-than-stellar device. While adequate to prevent a flow of coffee when you pull out the pot, it will still retain a few drops which slowly drip onto the warming plate while you are pouring a cup. It may even allow a slow, continuous drip, especially if coffee grounds find their way past the filter.

Keep a damp cloth or paper towel near the coffeemaker while it is on. Just before returning the pot to the plate, give it a quick wipe.

My Krups Grinder Brewer has stopped pulling water though the system. It just stays in the resevoir. Grinder part seems to be working fine.


Mine had the same problem ... all the lights are on, but no heating on the plate, and no dripping of water.

The KM7000 has 2 x MicroTemp G4 thermal cutoff (TCO) fuses which interrupt the Live line, for overheat protection. Mine didn't overheat per se, but the TCO blew anyway. Not reset-able ... need to be replaced with a soldering iron. I'll be happy to advise you to fix this, or fix it for you. Write me at [email protected].

Got a Krups KM7000. Coffee grinds but no water to brew coffee.Just clicks. then nothing. Tried to reset by unplugging but no help. Grinds everytime even when it's not supposed to. Water will not dispense.


This seems to be a common problem with this rig. So far, I've helped 13 people on this site with exactly the same problem ... all the lights are on, but no heat on the plate and no dripping water.

After a weekend on the workbench, I've mastered this machine. The KM7000 has 2 x MicroTemp G4 thermal cutoff (TCO) fuses which interrupt the Live line, for overheat protection. Mine didn't overheat per se, but the TCO blew anyway. Not reset-able ... need to be replaced with a soldering iron. I'll be happy to advise you to fix this, or fix it for you.

Km7000 will not brew


Your heating plate/water heater has failed. Krups replace my whole unit.

Cold coffee


Is it the coffee maker itself or the warming plate?

If it's the warming plate I would suggest geting a coffee thermos similar to the ones they have at IHOP and other breakfast places, it will keep your coffee hot all day if you first heat it up with very hot water and your coffee will not have the burned taste

Please answer if the answer works for you, thanks
