This iconic machine is widely used in commercial settings and homes alike for its reliable performance and efficient brewing time. To ensure that your Bunn coffee maker gives you years of top-notch service, it requires regular maintenance and cleaning. In this blog post, we’ll discuss just how to do that! How Often Should You Clean Your Bunn Coffee Maker?Your Bunn coffee maker should be cleaned every 3 months or so to keep it running efficiently and prevent limescale build-up. If you live in an area with hard water, cleaning your machine more frequently may be necessary. Additionally, if you notice any strange odors or tastes coming from your coffee, it's a sign that the machine needs a thorough clean. Cleaning InstructionsThe process of cleaning your Bunn coffee maker is simple enough and can be done in just a few steps:• Start by unplugging the machine from the power source. Then, remove all components—including the carafe—from the base of the machine.• Fill a sink or bowl with warm water mixed with vinegar (1 part vinegar for every 9 parts water). Place all removable components into the mixture and let them soak for 15 minutes before scrubbing gently with a soft sponge or cloth. Rinse off any remaining residue with warm water.• Next, fill up the reservoir tank of your coffee maker with equal parts water and white vinegar and switch on the power source. Let it run through its entire cycle until you hear two short beeps at intervals of 10 seconds each indicating that brewing is complete. Do not add any ground coffee during this process as it will only clog up some of its parts! After this is done, discard the contents of the carafe through a drain before rinsing it out thoroughly in hot water. Finally, rinse out the inside of your Bunn coffee maker once more using hot water only before reassembling all components back together again ready for use! Final ThoughtsWith just a little effort put into regularly cleaning your Bunn coffee maker, you can guarantee yourself many years' worth of delicious java without any unpleasant tastes or smells coming from your morning cup o' joe! By following these easy steps outlined above, you'll have no trouble keeping this trusty appliance running perfectly every single time! So don't wait—get started on giving your beloved Bunn some well-deserved TLC today!
