Holy crap! I was browsing recalls and found one of my coffee makers on it listed as a fire hazard.

Check this link to see if one of your pots is listed. The coffee maker shown here is my model that is recalled.

  1. I’ve been thinking of getting one of these and may still after the defects are fixed. How have you liked this coffeemaker (other than the recall!)?

  2. The first three pots were great and it makes very tasty coffee but after that three pots, the thermos/pot started to leak when it pours and only stays hot for about an hour and a half. At first, I swear to you, the coffee was still steaming hot after 4 hours. I do still like it but since they are going to let me get a new model at 1/2 price, I am going to get some other version.

  3. I have one of these bunn coffee makers. mine doesn’t leak, it won’t heat the water in the tank. I paid over $100.oo for this model and it didn’t last a year. thank god I kept my old model. it’s over 6 years old and works fine. I’ll have to look up the numbers on my meatl one and see if it’s still on the recall list.

  4. i have a bunn coffeee maker and my light went out and this is hard to tell if the machine is on thanks

  5. I have model GRX-B. The date on the coffee maker is 9/15/09. The switch will not turn on therefore the burner does not work either. What shall I do

  6. I have the identical coffee maker (GRX-B) as Jean Buckner with the identical problem: When switch is turned on there is no power to the maker (the water does not heat and the light does not come on when the switch is turned on to the warmer). How do I determine if it is the heating element or the switch gone bad?

  7. I have a( GRX-B)Bunn coffee maker its only 2yrs. old maybe not that old but it is leaking water from the bottom.What should I do?I paid 114.00 plus for it.

  8. Give Bunn customer service a call and see if they will replace your coffee maker. Since its been 2 years I’m not sure what they are going to say, but its worth a try:)

  9. I have only had my Bunn for about 3 years, it’s a great coffee maker when it doesn’t leak all over the place. How do you find out if this model I have has been recalled? My $15 Mr coffee works almost as good.

  10. I just noticed a recall on the Bunn just like I recently replaced due to same symptoms as described above . Unit want come on but wasnt aware of fire damage.How do I go about handling this?

  11. I have a BTX B Bunn coffemaker. Love the pot but pours water all over the place when the coffee is making. The water comes from all different directions from the pot?

  12. I have the coffee pot with the glass pot but the water will not heat anymore and this has a two year warranty on it. The coffee pot you can preset and it will come on by itself in the morning. I payed $110.00 for this and now it no longer works

  13. I would give the companies customer service a call and ask them what the next step is. Sorry you are experiencing this. Its so frustrating!!

  14. I have had many BUNN coffee makers. The last 3 that have been purchased have all been defective. 1.) didnt heat 2.) leaked like there is no tomorrow. 3.) Sounds like a localmotive train when it heats up. The saddest part is that the 800 number for customer service has no answer. So much for backing your product. If your intension is not to service the people than loose the 800 number.

  15. I love my Bunn Coffee maker, works FANTASTIC and have had no problems until today…It died. 🙁 I will buy a new one, I drink a lot of coffee, 2 to 3 full pots a day, more on weekends, it has been a trooper!

  16. I have a bunn coffee maker and it’s leaking water from somewhere, as I’ve seen is a common problem after reading the above complaints. In the beginning my Bunn was great, but for the past 6 months it has been leaking water, and won’t keep the coffee heated after it has made!! Very disappointed since I thought this was one of the top of the line coffee makers. Shopping now for a replacement..won’t be a Bunn!!

  17. My Bunn 12 cup is only a year and a half old. Suddenly this morning I plugged it in and turned it on and nothing happened. No heating light and no gurgling sounds of the water heating etc. Nothing. Tested the outlet and it is fine. We always unplug and turn off before going away for long weekends.
    This is my 4th Bunn in 12 years and they all worked very well. This is now a total disaster.
    I bought it for $122 just over a year ago and now it won’t work.
    The CR department never answers and I have held for 20 minutes with no answer.
    Any suggestions? Is there a secret number?
    Thanks and good luck to all.

  18. My Bunn died this morning. I love how fast it was, but am beginning to wonder if it is worth the $$to replace it. It is only a couple years old, and leaked from the get-go, I thought I had a lemon because my family all own Bunns from YEARS back, they have never had a problem. it seems to be the norm they are all lemons now.

  19. This is my third Bunn coffee maker…each time I buy one I think maybe the leaking will have been resolved but still am mopping up my counter. I do delime it but still doesn’t seem to do any good.
