How to fix a bunn coffee maker that trips a gfi
Every time I plug in my bunn coffee maker, it trips the GFI. But when I plug it into another plug in my kitchen, it will work, but it seems like the water reserve is not right. It blows too much steam and the top starts lifting up from the pressure of the steam, then it starts leaking out the top left side. Then if I pour enough water to make 10 cups, it only makes 6 or 8. The coffee maker is only 3 years old, what should I do?

My commercial bunn coffee maker is only brewing a half a pot even though I'm pouring in a full pot of coffee water??
Im assuming you tried it more than once and the tank is full when you start? If your doing manual fill pour over the timer has nothing to do with that. If it's plumbed with a water line, before you start changing your timer for the brew cycle, first try the easy fix which is unscrew the spray head. it's the piece the water comes out to the basket. Take the cleaning spring tool and rotate it as you push it thru the tube you just unscrew the spray head from. As your pushing it thru it has two turns in it . Just rotate and push until you have gone thru the second one and then it's clear to the water tank. Unfortunately this doesn't always get it unplugged. Where the tube goes into the water tank there is silicone hub on the part that's in the tank and it can keep some of the lime buildup from being removed. You will have to take the top off and remove the tube to clean it if that happenes. Dont forget to unplug it first. The other common spot for a restriction is where the water leaves the pan your pouring into. You need to remove the pan to get the spray tube out anyway so look also at the big nut that holds the pan onto the tank.sometimes the hole will plug in the center .

My Bunn coffee maker is making weak coffee
Couple of ideas.
Your weak coffee could be due to the machine not getting hot enough, which is usually caused by calcium scale buildup on the heating element (the "burner").
Try descaling with a citric-acid based cleaner, such as Dezcal or Durgol.
The second is the coffee your using is a weak blend. Try changing to a different coffee and see if the strength is better.
