Run a pot of half water and half vinegar through the coffee pot and you may need to repeat this process a couple times to get all the calcium buildup cleaned out of the pot. Hope this helps.

Hello. Bunn coffeemaker VPR Series. When water is poured in coffee starts to make. Carafe gets about 1/3 full and then just drips through filter for about 5 minutes. Never makes full pot.


VPS/VPR are pour over brewers. Like the 12 cup brewers you find at home, they need to be filled with 12 cups of water (a full pot), heated and then peculated over the coffee grounds and collected in a decanter.
BUT there is one main difference! The VPR and similar COMMERCIAL coffee machines are quick brewers. They usually have a pre-heated pot of water stored inside the machine.
* VPR's and similar machines REQUIRE a pre-fill and heating period prior to brewing. This means it's sitting on a level table and filled with water until water sprays from the brew head. At this point the unit is plugged in and the heater is turned on (there may be some water discharge from brew head as the water expands). Ready light will come on in about 15 mins.
* To Brew; Place coffee grounds in filter, place in funnel and brew head, clean empty decanter under funnel, slowly pour one full decanter of water (cold or hot) into brew tray. Do not overflow tray. Allow water level to sink before adding more water. Only fill with one pot as an equal amount will come out the brew head and funnel.
* Make sure the decanters are all the same size. do not mix a 12 cup pot with a 10 cup pot. One will over fill and the other will under fill. Make sure they match (in cup volume) FYI; Thermo Air pump pots are usually bigger than one pot. Typical filling only to 3/4th of the container. (I think most are in 2.5 to 3 liter sizes)
* If your not getting a full pot then the brewer was partially empty. The second brew (if done within the next hour) should come out full.
* If your still not getting a full pot then the water is leaking or is boiling off. Does it always steam from the top? Thermostat is shorted. Unplug the brewer and call vendor for service.
* Final; If your unplugging when not in use. Then follow the Pre-heat instructions mentioned above prior to plugging the brewer back in. If the tank has been emptied at night or dried up after an idle week. Then there is a chance you may over heat and blow the thermal fuse. Or at best have a half pot short brew as the water dried up.
* Note leaving the brewer plugged in without brewing daily is not a good idea. The water evaporates and eventually drys out the pot. Takes about 1-2 weeks but it does blow the fuse(s) and the unit will need service.
* Final; Follow the Bunn set up and care instructions (manuals from Bunn.com for down loading. *FREE*)

Lime in coffee pot


We recommend cleaning your machine with white vinegar for 2 hours and then using the metal deliming tool under where the sprayhead is located. IThen flush it out with 8-10 decanters of water. If this doesn't fix your problem, please call customer service at 800-352-2866 with the model and date code.

My coffee pot is very slow and only 3/4 of pot fills


With the machine full of water and still turned on, pour in 1 qt of white vinegar into the top and place decanter on base and close the lid. You will let this sit in the machine for 2 hours. At the end of 2 hours, flush out the vinegar with 8-10 decanters of water.

Cleaning


The metal proble is use to clean out the water tubing. Remove your sprayhead and insert the metal rod up in the hole leaving out about 1-2 inches. Then simply twist and turn the rod about 5-6 times. This will remove any lime deposits. Then flush out with 2-3 decanters of water. You can obtain a new manual by calling customer service or going to the website-www.bunn.com going to @home, then products-click on your brewer-and then select use and care manual and you can print it out or view it online.

Will not percolate. Water is poured, it heats up, no coffee brew


Bunn Home brewers don't perculate. They work the same way that commercial brewers do. Fillit with water, let it heat for about 20 minutes, then put your filter and coffee grounds in the funnel, pour a pot of water into the machine, put the pot on the warmer, and let the water run through. Then enjoy a nice hot cup of coffee.

Bunn Cooffee Maker is not making full pots of coffee


I would ask if this machine has been moved lately- for cleaning or has anyone put anything new around the brewer? If someone has moved this brewer, they might have caused a kink in the line coming to the back of the brewer. this will restrict the water flow to the brewer. this will cause the brewer to brew only part pots of coffee.
