Question about Bunn VLPF Coffee Maker

1 Answer

WE HAVE A BUNN VLPF SERIES COFFEE MAKER. WHEN YOU PUSH THE BUTTON TO MAKE A POT OF COFFEE, THE WATER DOESNT STOP AT ONE POT IT MAKES 6-7 BEFORE IT STOPS. IF YOU TURN OFF THE MACHINE WHEN THE DECANTER IS HALF FULL, IT WILL MAKE ONE POT AND DOESNT CONTINUE TO RUN. DOES THIS SOUND LIKE THE FLOW CONTROL SOLENOID OR THE CONTROL BOARD HAS GONE BAD?

Sounds like your timer part #32400.0002.This is the new type timer which replaces the dial timer.Another thing is does this happen when you turn on the on/off switch? I would also check your liquid level probe in top of tank.Always a possibility bad liquid level board.If it only does this when you push the brew button the timer is bad.

My bunn vlpf coffee maker the water tank is overheating to the point of steam is spewing fro the air release tube... I'm thinking thermostat ?


You are correct.Also check the tank for lime.By unplugging and removing top of machine (2) screws and remove fill basin.You can then remove your t-stat probe to check.If it is lime up you can crack off the lime and reinstall it in the tank.If limed up I would suggest de-liming.T-stat part# 4314.0001.

The water comes out warm from both the coffee maker and the hot water tap. I have the BUNN VLPF series. This machine is only 4 months old and has never worked correctly.


Is it still under warranty? Bunn should take care of it for you if it is. Usually if the coffee is only warm it may mean that a thermal limit has tripped. The water stays warm because the tank has a heater blanket that is wrapped around it but you aren't getting any power to the heater that is in the tank.

The machine is always on, so it is never full the first time you use it on monday. Try this before you use it on monday pour in a full pot of water in the brewer and put an empty pot under the head. Wait about 7 minutes, the machine will fill the tank and then be ready for brewing coffee.

I haveBX-B . I had the pot set up for me to push the on button for Monday Morning, but the water ran throug and it was not on.So now I have cold coffee in the Decanter.


The Bunn coffee maker does not operate as most coffee makes do. You cannot leave the Bunn in the off position and then just flip the switch to on and pour the water in. You will always get cold coffee if you do this. It takes time for it to heat the water. The On/Off switch should be left in the On position all the time. This keeps the water hot in the tank, thus providing hot water when you need to make coffee. You then just pour the cold water in the top, shut the lid, and have a pot of coffee in 3 minutes. The On/Off switch is a vacation switch, and you use it only when you are not going to use the coffee maker for a couple of days. Older Bunn coffee makers did not even have an On/Off button. You simply unplugged them when going on vacation. So turn the switch to the On position and leave it there. The unit will then work as designed. Forget how other coffee makers work, this is a Bunn and it is the fastest coffee maker you can buy and must be left on all the time. that way the water stays hot and the unit will keep it that way.

I have a Bunn VLPF that does not stop at the end of the "brew cycle" but just continues to run and run and run and . . . (you get the point)! Thanks for your help Phillip S. Hull


Hello, you have a problem with the inlet valve or timer. hit the brew button and then once the water starts running through the brew cone pull the plug, if after a couple of minutes the brew stops your problem is going to be with the timer (you should replace it) if the brew does not stop at all then you have a problem with the inlet valve (it has a piece of calcium stuck in the valve) you should replace the valve kit in this instance. You can buy parts from either bunn or a company called holiday house in cali. if you have any further questions please feel free to comment again. Good Luck!! Mike
