Question about Bunn VPS Coffee Maker
First think to check is the spray head which pours the water onto the powder. remove the spray head, clean it and soak it in descaler.
reassemble and do a brew. When finished check the surface of the coffee has 6 dimples where the water has poured onto it and that the coffee is uniformly wet. If no dimples or dry spots, get replacement spray heads.

SOURCE: my bunn is too slow
Use the de-liming spring to clean the copper tube behind the spray head. Pour several pots of clear white vinegar through the unit to further remove lime and scale from the interior of your coffee maker. My Bunn is 24 years old, and the only replacement parts I've ever required are new carafes and the 4041 silicone washer repair kit.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: WEAK COFFEE & NOT HOT ENOUGH
Basing on personal experience (you can find more on Google probably), solutions are:
On percolated (filter) coffee machines:
Check water temp, if water temp is insufficient , most common is scale heating element , faulty element, faulty thermostat.
Check if water is dripping right at the center of the filter, if it is dripping on one side because the orifice is clogged, that can result in weak coffee.
Coffee blend not well distributed on filter basket.
On Espresso machines:
Check water temp, same as filter coffee machines (thermostat element, scale on heating chamber).
Ensure that coffee is filled correctly in the filter cup (fill at level), and well pressed.
Ensure that the coffee mixture that you are using is not too coarse, buy the apposite one for espresso.
Ensure that you are not leaving the machine brewing for a time that is too long, and Italian coffee cup is very small, approximately one regular shot.
On the hob moka pots (espresso, Moka and Bialetti type):
This are the trickiest ones, you need art and practice to get a good espresso with a Moka, but when you learn, the result is better than what you may get with an home electrical espresso maker.
The frame on the hob must be not too strong, and the mixture coarse but well pressed, with water at level tag, or you will get a weak coffee.
On Mokas a good strategy is keeping hob at minimum, and turning up the flame at top when coffee starts coming out.
French and turkish cafetieres:
Ensure that you put enough coffee, water hot enough, and that you left the infusion enough time to get a strong coffee.
Note: insufficient pressure and clogged lines on electric machines never give you a weak coffee, exactly the opposite.
Not pressed mixture always gives weak coffee, but too much pressed mixture may give you coffee with bad taste.

SOURCE: Bad tasting coffee
Hello. Usually bad taste is one of 3 things, water quality, coffee quality is changed, or brew temp is different. Try removing all the water, by tilting the unit over the sink, unplug please, so the end where the funnel would go is draining the water into the sink, go slowly. Once all the water is removed, refill it with fresh water until it comes out the spray head/funnel area again, plug back in, heat and test. Now there could still be residue in the tank, and it may require doing this a couple of times to clear fully. Try another coffee, may have just had a bad can/bag/etc..
Last, take the temp of the water coming out of the funnel, should be about 180 deg. F, if not it could be too cool, and needs a thermostat or element. If you need a service provider, go to www.bunnomatic.com and locate a service near you.
Hope that helps, and thank you.

This is usually caused by a missing sprayhead above your filter basket. take out the filter basket, and see if there is a sprayhead up there, or if there is just a little round pipe that the prayhead screws on to. If it is missing, you can contact your local Bunn dealer, or phone bunn directly, and they will take care of you. You can get a list of repair centers in your area at www.bunn.com
