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.

Make sure you are using the type of commercial coffee pot like the one in the picture. They don't have to have to be plastic with the metal bottom, they can be all glass. The commercial pots are heavy duty and usually disperse the heat well.

If you are using commercial pots the only solution without replacing the warmers is to put three pennies on the warmer and to put the pot on top of them. The pennies will get hot so don't forget and grab them but the pennies help to move the pot just a little way away from the direct heat.

It sounds like you have a pour over model and the problem is the tank isn't full. Turn the machine off (or unplug it). Put a pot on the warmer like you are going to brew coffee. Pour clean cold water into the top until it starts coming out the sprayhead (above where the coffee grounds go). Now plug it in and turn on. Let it heat up then you can brew.

The way your machine works is that there is always about 2-1/2 pots of water in the tank. The water you pour in to make coffee is actually pushing the hot water in the tank out. So, if you don't fill the tank before using it, you may be hurting the heating element since it isn't totally submerged in water.

You can either replace the warming element with a new one, or some people put 3 or 4 pennies on the top of the warmer tray. Don't laugh- this really does work!

Most likely this is your heating element, but it could also be your main thermostat

My Bunn model CWTF35-TS heats properly sometimes and is only luke warm other times! Just wondering what maybe causing this?


Defective temperature sensor is my guess, try running white vinegar through it a few times, the sensor may have hard water deposits on it which can alter the readings.

My bunn makes great coffee, but after 10 min in the cup it is luke warm. Could the initial temperture be set too low?


If by meaning the coffee pot, the bottom warmer maybe loose and dropped inside the machine.Normal brew temp is 195 degrees out of tank.There also may be problem with the hi-limit ,t-stat or element.

Check the Hi-limit thermostat on top of the tank, then the pressure stat setting and then the inline fuse and then elements.

Our Bunn VPR coffeemaker takes a LONG time to heat up the water. If we don't wait several hours between pots of coffee, the coffee is luke-warm at best. Does this sound like a heating element or...


We left vinegar in the coffeemaker overnight. Seems to have done the trick - water is heating up now after 20 or so minutes instead of several hours.

Adjusting the temperature


Our Bunn VPR was delivering luke warm coffee. The problem was lime scale buildup on the heating element. I recommend using a cleaner such as Brew Rite or a vinegar solution. If it still does not heat properly, unplug and remove the heating element for cleaning. This corrected our problem.
