There are two heaters in a VRP unit (Pour over style) The brewer has a tank that your last office person poured in a full pot of water. The main heater senses the colder water and begins to reheat the water to near boiling. The new water pushes out the same amount of water into the brewing basket (funnel with coffee). Once the new water has come up to temperature then the main heater turns off. There is a warming blanket around the inside tank. This keeps the water hot and ready to brew. It uses less power than the main heater. If this blanket fails then the water will cool down to a point where the main heater heats everything back up. You may not notice this as the only indication is luke warm coffee on a freshly made pot or a 'boiling' noise every 15 - 25 mins. This VRP probably needs servicing (check Thermal blanket and Thermal fuse)

Hello. What your hearing is the water being heated in the tank, these machines hold a couple pots of water at brewing temp all the time, unless you unplug it from the wall, or turn off the heater switch if you have one. So, as the day goes on, it will intermittently have to heat the water in order to keep it at the proper temp. I would not worry about it too much, unless water is spitting out when it does this.

Hope that helped, and thank you.

Open the front panel, there is a set of instructions on it, you will have to make sure the board is set to program and not lock, before you adjust.

The thermostat or tank heater is not working properly. Please get the model and date code located on the bottom of the machine and contact customer service. If your machine is 3 years old or less, it will be replaced free of charge. If you machine is over 3 years old, it will be replaced at a reduced price.

Couldn't find a lot about this problem, but one site mentioned making sure the unit is always filled with water, and not to fill only partially. It also said the unit makes a tiny gurgling noise when it's brewing.
The following Bunn support page mentions that it might be time for deliming in the case of loud rumbling noises. Here's the site:

Sounds like what may be going on with your unit.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

We need to store a Bunn VPR Series coffee pot. How do I remove the water from the tank?


try hitting 'brew' until all the water evaporates, or look for a 'leak' valve to empty it. usually on the bottom or the side near the tank.

How can I clean my bunn vp17-2 coffe maker the water will not leave the holding tank to go to the filter


First make sure you have enough water in the machine. It holds about 2 and a half pots of water in the holding tank. If the machine sits for a week without use but is still plugged in, sometimes the water will evaporate down to the point where pouring one pot of water in, will not fill the tank back up. If you still don't get a water flow, take the brew funnel out and reach up where the water normally comes out, There is a round water dispenser about 2 inches in diameter. Unscrew it by turning countercloclwise. It has a dozen or so holes where the water come out. Be sure these holes are not stopped up. There is a small pipe fitting where you took the water dispenser off. Bunn makes a long spring like thing that fits into this hole to remove built up lime deposits. If you don't have one you can use a flexable wire like braided copper wire about 18 inches long to push through the hole and slide it back and forth until it comes out clean. If you have hard water, like well water you may be getting a lot of calcium build up in the tank. Put about a quart of vinegar in the next coffee pot and let it sit an hour. Pour water through the machine until it stops smelling like vinegar. That should solve your problems.

Bunn coffee brewer leaking


Is this a lot of water, or just a small amount.

As the unit sits over time and runs heating cycles, it may have some vapor come out of the vents. That will cool and collect around the unit.

try turning the unit off for the weekends. If you still have water around the unit, then it may have a leak in the tank.

Bunn coffee maker leaks water only during operation...near end of the cycle (not when it just sits & not when water is first added).


There is a gasket where the water inters the tank,you have to remove the tank to get to it .mark down how it is wired so you can hook it back up.Use a high-temp
silacone ( auto ) and seal it under the the gasket and around the edge of the gasket.. 2 screws holding the metal plate plate. 4 screws holding tank need a 12 or 14 " phillips to reach down on the side of the tank to remove outer cover.

Bunn coffee maker reservoir makes a gurgling noise


THis sound is usually caused by the water being low in the tank. This can be because the machine is left on for long periods without being used. If this is not the case, then it would probably be your heating element getting small holes in it.

The Bunn coffee machine has an internal tank used for holding approx three potfulls of water at just below brewing temperature. When you add water for a potful, the thermostat senses cold water and starts the brew heater. The water level inside the tank comes up and goes through the sprayhead. This "surge" of water, that you call drips is normal. The hot water stratifies to the top of the tank, just like an electric water tank in a house. The internal pot heater kicks in and boils the water already in the tank, raising the water level in the siphon pipe to the sprayhead until the reservoir under the add water opening is empty.
