Clean with CLR and then water rinse....use DRIP fine grind
1 tablespoon per cup..........remember strength is the coffee and the amount of water.

    You should never use CLR for a coffee machine that continuously holds water (like this Bunn model). The CLR bottle specifically mentions this. The reason is that when you add new water, it displaces the heated water in the tank but there will be some mixing, resulting in some CLR left in your water tank. If you still insist on using CLR, run fresh water through several times before ingesting anything that comes out of it.

Did you loose the spray nozzle underneath the basket? I discovered mine was missing after a week or so of weak coffee and dry grounds.

Bunn cwtf20-3 makes weak coffee


When you pull the basket out after its finished brewing what does the surface of the coffee look like? Are there 6 or so clearly defined dimples in the surface where the water pours from the spray head? Is the powder uniformly wet? If the answer is no to either of these, remove and clean the spray head. Use a descaling tablet or powder to soak the spray head and then use a small tool to clear the holes. Be careful not to make the holes bigger though.

Water not filtering quick enough, basket overflows


Make sure your sprayhead is the proper one (5 hole) and in good shape. Also make sure that the hole on your filter basket has not been partially closed. This can happen if you set it on the hot warmer. As a last resort, you can slightly enlarge the hole in your filter basket.

look for water leaks around pot. Otherwise do a daytime brew to compare your difference between the amount poured in and what comes out. Please note that less water should mean using less ground coffee. Suggest 1 heaping table spoon per brewed cup.

Just bought a new Bunn Thermafresh and it overflows coffee grounds and coffee all over. What can I do?


Coffee overflowing onto the counter is a common complaint found in response to many automatic drip coffee makers. The following are potential solutions that can be used to rule out "operator error" vs. a defect or malfunction:

1. Don't overfill the basket with grinds.
2. Ensure you are using the correct grind for an automatic drip coffee maker, neither too fine nor too course. (See instruction manual.)
3. Do not overfill with water. Use the carafe to pour water into the reservoir. This is because a "cup" in coffee terms is defined as 6 oz, not 8 oz.
4. Make sure the filter cone/basket clicks into place and that the carafe is centered and pushed all the way in.
5. Try a permanent filter rather than a paper filter or vice versa.
6. Only use the correct permanent or paper filter (see manual).
7. Make sure that the Pause 'n Serve button isn't sticking. (If it is activated too long the brew will escape over the top of the cone/basket. This may be more apt to happen if the alignment of the carafe and the basket is incorrect.)
8. Clean your machine with vinegar or as instructed by your user manual at least three times per year, more if your water supply is hard. A properly cleaned machine is less likely to suffer a burned out heating element, to take too long to brew, to produce "off" tasting coffee, or to clog and overrun the filter basket as the water runs through the grinds.
9. Ensure that the coffee machine is sitting level on the counter.

Brewed coffee mess


You may be grinding the coffee to fine making the draining a little slower. There's something called a fast flow filter that may help also. Also, make sure that you aren't jamming the filter down to partially block the drain hole ensuring that it is freely draining out unobstructed

Coffee grounds overflow out of basket into top of coffee pot.


Coffee overflowing onto the counter is a common complaint found in response to many automatic drip coffee makers. The following are potential solutions that can be used to rule out "operator error" vs. a defect or malfunction:

3. Do not overfill with water. Use the carafe to pour water into the reservoir. This is because a "cup" in coffee terms is defined as 6 oz, not 8 oz. Note: Some coffee makers define as little as 5 oz as a cup.

Need owner's manual for a West Bend 57870 coffee maker


Manual Not Listed On Website, but Information on Coffee Amount is.

http://www.focuselectrics.com/catalog.cfm?dest=itempg&itemid=2318&secid=54&linkon=category&linkid=21

Coffee Amounts


How much coffee should I use?

4-Cup Quik Drips - We recommend using 1 tablespoon automatic drip or ""all grind"" coffee for each cup being made. You can adjust the amount to suit your personal preference but DO NOT USE MORE THAN 2 TABLESPOONS per cup being made. If more than 2 tablespoons per cup are used flooding of the basket may occur.

10 and 12 Cup Quik Drips - We recommend using 1 tablespoon automatic drip or ""all grind"" coffee for each cup being made. If making less than 4-cups of coffee, add an extra tablespoon of coffee for better flavor. You can adjust the amount of coffee used to suit your personal preference.

Weak coffee


It sounds like you may have lost the sprayhead. It is under the brew basket (above the place where you put the basket with the filter and the coffee). Sometimes they get loose and you don't realize it and it can fall in the grounds and get tossed out after brewing.
