We are FIXYA dot com and we don't do stuff like that at all. We just supply answers.

If you have a 20 amp mains hookup, you will be fine.

Bunn, DUAL brewers are large volume (1-1/2 gal per thermal Dispencer.) In most commercial VAN operations there is a requirement to cook and assemble food in a sanitary food approved kitchen or process plant. Brewing would be done at the kitchen. To use this type of brewer would be to get enough 1-1/2 gal servers to cover your needs for the event. Brew everything you need in the morning and just take the servers to the event. I remember waking up at 4 AM to brew 25 servers for big events. We even did a mid morning run with another 15 servers. You can also install low wattage warmers designed for the servers. I suggest two warmers to keep regular and de-cafe hot. The rest can be set aside. Some servers will stay hot enough for up to 4 hours.
* Installing the brewer in the van has problems with keeping the water level. You will need a "Boat kit" to allow for sloshing water. You also need a pressurized water tap. Power is rated at 220-240 30 amps. (40 amps if your at 200VAC)
* Check with your local coffee vendor for advice.

SOURCE: Coffee Brewer comes out warm not hot

look at the top of the coffee maker you'll see two screws and the warmer tray and the cover for adding water. remove the two screws and lift the top off. the warmer has two push on spade terminals. pull the wires off them. below is a tray where the water goes and you'll see a brass bushing. this is screwed into a fitting on the water tank. use a piece of steel as a spanner and unscrew this fitting. don't lose the gasket that's under it. the main wires for the burner element and thermostat are also under this tray. look at the top. there's nine screws that hold the top on the water tank. two white wires go to the tank warmer and two wires go to the tank heater inside. you can try turning up the thermostat setting to a higher range and see what happens. there's a copper pipe that comes from the tank to the sprayhead the tank holds approx three urn fulls of water. if you have an analog meter you can check the element for continuity on the RX1 range. Do the same with the tank warmer element. Bunn-o-matic has a web site you can buy replacement parts or nelson appliance can get you parts too.

If the unit does this constantly, it's probably seeping past the solenoid valve. you can try taking it off and check for dirt or corrosion that is stopping it from closing properly, or replace it. the solenoid valve is located under the front panel, and is silver in colour with 2 wires & 2 copper tubes coming to it. as always, please be sure there is no power coming to the unit before servicing!!

The problem is either the liquid control board or there is something blocking the solenoid, or drawing water from the same line pressure. Also check the sprayhead for buildup.

SOURCE: 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 Dual only heating to 180-185F

Is there scale buildup on the heating element? Can you check the voltage of heating elements. They should read in the 208v range. If all checks out then I would change out the thermostat.

Hi I have a bunn commercial brewer. its a sh dbc brewer. the brewer keeps heating the water all thw way to 225 degrees and keeps going.

Sounds like the thermostat needs to be replaced adjusted or the probe to the thermostat is covered in scale, and it cannot read the temp correctly. Remove top panel and check probe, if fine no buildup, follow probe line to thermostat and set to a lower setting, if same problem replace thermostat.

My bunn stopped working completely. It will not heat water and warmer wont come on. All switches are in correct position

Plug something else into the same outlet and see if you are getting electricity in that outlet. If it is on a ground fault circuit, push the little red button in in the middle of the outlet. or check the breaker box to see if the breaker has kicked. It is unusual for everything to quit working at the same time if it is getting power.

Unit leaks water from bottom bunn pouromatic

What model of Bunn is this? If it is a bx-b or any of the other home models, what has happened is that the plastic pour-in tray has become brittle and cracked where it mounts onto the tank. The only repair for this is to replace the tray with one from another brewer (possibly your local bunn Dealer has an old brewer lying around). If it is a commercial brewer (VPR, VPS, Ect) there will be a sael leaking on the top of the tank.
