Try taking the filter out, and turn the sprayhead off the unit. Put the basket back on, and try pouring clear water through the unit. If the water runs through fine, you either have a plugged sprayhead or are using too finely ground coffee. Look at the holes in the sprayhead, and make sure that none of the holes are plugged. If the basket still overflows, try using a drill bit to make the hole in the funnel a little larger. Good luck.

### Can I dilute Scotts Miracle Grow for use in my Ortho dial spray bottle?

Yes, you can use Miracle-Gro Water Soluable Plant Food in the Ortho Dial N Spray hose-end sprayer. Simply set the dial on the Dial N Spray to 4 ounces. The label rate for Miracle-Gro All Purpose Plant Food is 1 tablespoon per gallon of water. To make 8 gallons of finished spray, measure 8 rounded tablespoons of plant food into the Dial N Spray jar and fill the jar with water. Mix thoroughly. Set the dial at 4 ounces. When you have sprayed until jar is empty, you will have applied 8 gallons of properly diluted spray. Hilary@Scotts

### If Bunn unit has been stored for a while, how do i clean it and get it ready to use?

Hi, W/D here.
To get your Bunn working again, place a filter into the basket, fill the reservoir, and allow it to begin dispensing into the carafe. This will take several pots of water to get it filled and overflowing (dispensing). Plug it in, and let the reservoir heat up. It's not necessary at this point to have the heating plate turned on, but you can do so if desired to check that it is working, then turn it back off. Once you hear the reservoir heating up, pour in 8 ounces of white vinegar, and let the machine dispense into the carafe. Place an additional 8 ounces of white vinegar into the carafe, and pour back into the reservoir. Let the water heat up again, and let the vinegar solution sit in the reservoir for about 30 minutes. Top off the carafe with cool water and allow the carafe to cool with the warming plate turned off. After the 30 minutes, pour the contents of the carafe back into the reservoir, and it will dispense again. The water in the reservoir will heat up again. Check the coffee filter for residue. If you see a lot of grainy material, change the filter, and repeat the cycle until the filter comes out clean. Save your old filters as you go. Lay them out in order on paper towels, and you'll be able to mark your progress. When the filters clear up, discontinue recycling the vinegar solution and, instead, fill the reservoir with fresh water. The sediment has by now been freed up (de-scaled) and will continue to come off in smaller and smaller quantities. Each time you place fresh water in the machine, the dispensed liquid will smell less and less like vinegar. When no vinegar odor can be detected, you are finished.
Best regards, --W/D--

### COFFEE MACHINE KEEPS FIL;LING UP AND OVERFLOWS. tHIS IS A BUNNOMATIC MODEL STPF-15

Dunkin Donuts decaf coffee clogs the filter as the water fills the basket causing the basket to overflow. The coffee is ground too fine. Swtich brands or use a second filter to cover the coffee grounds to keep them from floating and clogging the filter.

### BT10B Coffee Maker: When I use Dunkin Donuts coffee in my Bunn coffee ...

Dunkin Donuts is a finer ground coffee and the water comes through so quickly that it isn't absorbed quick enough so you don't get the full flavor and it causes an overflow. If you will call Bunn Customer Service, a new flow restrictor can be sent to you to resolve this problem.

### I want to know how to drain the water and get the lime out of the tank

Unplug, cool down, remove carafe and basket, turn unit horizontally over sink. It will drain faster if you remove the screw on "distributor" (nozzle). OR do not drain. Just add the plastic pitcher full of a 50% white vinegar solution, let heat then turn off for 1 hour. Drain OR add 4-5 pitchers of cold water to rinse.
