VPR is a pour over "Volume Displacement" brewer. Required to completely fill the inner tank and heat prior to using brewer. BEFORE plugging in unit, water must be poured into upper tray and with brew funnel and empty pot in place. Keep pouring water into top fill tray until water drips out of brew funnel. Plug in VPR and allow it 15-20 mins to heat up. leave the pot as there may be additional water dripping. Remove power if there is any water spilling out from other places like the top pan cover or bottom of machine. With the initial heating done, take a full pot of water and slowly pour into the top filling tray. HOT steaming water should come out of the brew funnel to fill the (empty) pot. Prep is done and the machine can be used to brew a pot after 10-15mins of reheat time.
*** the machine you have needs to be checked for leaks in areas mentioned above. Water should only come out of brew funnel (if not present then the brew head or if that is missing then the brew pipe. All will need to be replaced prior to brewing.) Leaking under machine is an indication of leak(s) in pour tray,tank,tank cover, gasket, probe gasket. This machine like any used equipment should be checked out by qualified tech prior to use. Be aware that coffee vendors sometimes rent or loan brewers to customers.

Is there a gasket between the filling tank and the lid of the tank


Yes. It's a tank gasket that can be purchased from www.bunn.com. You'll have to remove the trough above the tank, wires, fuse, temperature probe, water inlet, hot water output tube, and 8 nuts to get to it.

Water leaks from the top of the right side of commercial coffee maker


VPR has a semi-sealed tank that keeps +1 pot of water heated and ready to brew. Pouring in a full pot of cold water will fill the top tray and allow a slow trickle of cold water into the top which forces hot water to over flow into the brew basket. This continues until all the cold water drains into the heater tank. So the brew is matched volume per volume. UNLESS the tank was empty or not filled prior to brewing. Follow the brewing instructions from Bunn (on line for *FREE* download at Bunn.com)
* If it leaks (from the bottom) only when you pour in water. Then your pouring it too fast and over flowing the fill tray. slowdown, watch the level in the tray. do not fill past the lid.
* If it leaks just sitting (not brewing) then there is a hole in the tank. Call for service.
* If it leaks after filling the tray half way. then the top of the tank has a leak, loose, cracked, or missing gasket. There is quite a few gaskets on the lid. Call for service.
* Final; Leaks are always bad around electrical equip. Best to unplug and call for service to be safe.

My pour-omatic steams up overnight then will not brew full pot


Check the thermostat on the machine, make sure pot is full before brewing. The water in the tank just heats up it is loosing most of it, make sure lid is on pour in screen.

My Bunn coffee maker just quit. No hot water, no brewing sounds, no heater. Is it the cord or is it just done? Help!


Unplugged, check the wire connections, heating element and thermostats
You need to have a volt meter for this job.

Should I leave the Bunn Pour Omatic Coffeemaker plugged in at all times?


Yes, the coffee maker keeps a tank of water pre-heated, that is what allows it to brew coffee in a couple of minutes. The exception would be vacation (away from home) or other times when you won't be using it for a few days. Visit www.bunnomatic.com if you have lost your user manual.

Bunn Coffee machine only makes 1/2 pot


What's happening is that it isn't leaking, it's boiling over. You need to turn down the thermostat under the top lid. Also, before you brew coffee, add water to the tank and let it pour into an empty pot. Once it stops brewing, let it heat up for a few minutes then make your pot of coffee.

Water leaking


The silicon seal inside the coffee maker tends to disintergrate. Bunn Inc. does not sell parts for the inside of the coffee makers, but a seal kit can be purchased through a small appliance repair center or repaired for a small cost. Kit is about $8.00 at most places.

Most likely it is your tank heater, but look on the top of the tank heater, because sometimes the wire will burn off the top of the element

My bunn is too slow


Use the de-liming spring to clean the copper tube behind the spray head. Pour several pots of clear white vinegar through the unit to further remove lime and scale from the interior of your coffee maker. My Bunn is 24 years old, and the only replacement parts I've ever required are new carafes and the 4041 silicone washer repair kit.
