IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
Follow these basic safety precautions when using electrical
appliances to reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, and/or
personal injury:
• Do not insert or remove pod holder
while brewing. Press the coffee or
tea button to stop or cancel a brew
cycle.
• A canceled brew cycle is not held in
memory.The next brew cycle will
dispense full volume based on the
volume setting.
• To avoid cup overflow, empty mug
before each brew cycle.
• Never place hands directly under the
pod holder. Hot water and steam can
be present.
• Do not place brewer in a sink or near
other water source. Remove reservoir
and fill separately or use the slide lid.
• When the brewer is idle, the lid
should be in the closed position.
• Always use a mug or bowl that
is larger than the brew volume
selected.
• Keep hands away if container
overflows. Wait until brew finishes,
let liquid cool, then lower volume
setting or use a larger mug.
• Never brew without the pod holder
insert in place. Excessive pressure on
the pod could result in coffee or tea
escaping from the holder and into
the cup. Hot liquid splash and burns
could occur.
• Use cold water only.
• Do not place torn pods or use ground
coffee in pod holder.
• Read all instructions.
• Do not touch hot surfaces. Use
handles or knobs.
• To protect against electric shock, do
not place cord, plug, or brewer in
water or liquid.
• Close supervision is necessary
when the brewer is used by or near
children.
• Unplug from outlet when not in use
for extended periods of time and
before cleaning. Allow to cool before
putting on or taking off parts, and
before cleaning.
• Do not operate the brewer with a
damaged cord or plug, or after the
brewer malfunctions or has been
damaged in any manner. Return the
brewer to an Authorized Service
Facility for examination, adjustment,
or repair. (Refer to page 22)
• The use of an accessory not evaluated
for use with this brewer may cause
injuries and is not authorized.
• For indoor use only. Do not use
outdoors.
• Do not let the power cord hang over
edge of table or counter, or touch hot
surfaces.
• Do not place the brewer on or near
a hot gas or electric burner, or in a
heated oven.
• Do not use brewer for other than its
intended use.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
• A short power-supply cord is used to reduce the risks resulting from
becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord.
• If an extension cord is used, the marked electrical rating of the extension
cord should be at least as great as the electrical rating of the brewer, and
the cord should be arranged so that it will not hang over the edge of the
table or counter where it can be pulled on by children or tripped over.
• The extension cord must be of the 3-pronged, 3-socketed, grounding
type, 3-wire cord. (Including grounding conductor).

GENERAL INFORMATION
Improper installation could result in permanent damage and
void the limited warranty. Read & follow the instructions on page 9.
• Use CAUTION when dispensing hot water from the brewer. The
water from your BUNN® Pod brewer is approximately 200°F. This is
approximately 50°F hotter than the hot water from your faucet and
must be handled with care.
• This brewer is designed to remain plugged in at all times (except during
initial installation, cleaning, or when brewer will not be used for an extended
period of time).
• A power switch is provided on the lower left side to completely shut off all
electrical components when your plans take you away from the brewer for
three or more days. Safety features, designed into the BUNN® Pod brewer,
make the daily use of this switch unnecessary.
• Whenever the brewer has been shut off or unplugged for an extended period
of time, rinse the reservoir and refill with fresh cold water before using. It is
also recommended that the brewer be cycled. (See page 15)
• Your BUNN® Pod brewer has a specially designed tank to keep the water
inside at the proper temperature.This constant supply of hot water assures
the correct method of brewing in less than one minute.
• When inserting a pod into the pod holder, it is important to seat the pod all
the way into the holder cavity. Leaks could occur if the pod is too large, or
does not seat completely into the holder cavity. Ensure that all of the paper
edge and any tabs of the pod are inserted into the holder cavity.
• While brewing, the newest water in the tank is also being heated to the
proper temperature and held until needed.
• The brewer is equipped with a 120 volt, 3-prong grounded cord set.The plug
is provided with a round grounding pin.This is a safety feature and allows
the plug to fit into a properly grounded outlet. If the plug does not fit into the
outlet, contact an electrician to update your outlet. Attempting to bypass the
safety aspect of this plug will void the warranty.
• The sprayhead may become loose over time. Unplug the machine and allow
it to cool down before tightening or removing the sprayhead. Use extreme
caution not to burn yourself.Tighten or remove the sprayhead with your
fingertips. (Refer to page 14)
• CAUTION: Never apply force to remove the pod holder. If the holder does
not slide out easily, wait 10 minutes and try again. Burns resulting from hot
water splash could occur if the holder is forcibly removed from the brewer.
• Use CAUTION to avoid burns during consumption of any freshly brewed
beverage. Servings are extremely hot.
• To stop a brew cycle in process, press the Coffee or Tea button again. (See
Page 7)
• When operating the brewer on a standard household outlet, do not attempt
to power other appliances on the same circuit. Circuit overload could occur.

• BREW CANCEL - If it is necessary to cancel a brew cycle, this can be done
by pressing either the Coffee or Tea button again. Although some water
may drip out, the pump will immediately stop forcing water through the
pod holder. Always wait for hot liquid to stop before removing the pod
holder.
CAUTION: When a brew cycle is canceled, it will not finish dispensing it’s
previous brew volume when the button is pressed again. The memory is
reset and the brewer will dispense a full volume as indicated by the Volume
Control Lever. This could cause a cup to overflow if it is not emptied prior
to pressing the button a second time.
• MIN & MAX MARKINGS - The side of the water reservoir bears the
markings “MIN” and “MAX”.These markings indicate the minimum and
maximum amount of water that can be placed in the reservoir. If the

• PULSE BREW™ - Using the Tea Button will cause the brewer to perform
a pulse brew operation. A Pulse Brew cycles the water on and off to
effectively steep the tea to extract the proper flavor.The “On-Off-On” water
flow is normal. Always wait for the blue (brew) lights to go out, and the
red BUNN light o come back on before carefully removing the mug or pod
holder. Pressing either brew button during this operation will stop the
brew cycle. (See the “Brew Cancel” feature above for more information.)
8
INITIAL BREWER SET-UP
1. Remove the lid and
water reservoir.
8. Place a mug or bowl that
will hold at least 14 fluid oz.
onto the drip tray grate.
(CAUTION: Do not place the brewer in a sink
or other water source.)
9
BREWING DELICIOUS COFFEE OR TEA
10
HOT WATER
The same basic steps used to brew coffee or tea can be used to obtain
hot water by leaving the coffee pod or tea bag/pod out of the pod holder.
CAUTION: The water from your BUNN® Pod brewer is approximately
200°F. This is hotter than the hot water from your faucet and must be
handled with care.
COFFEE FUNDAMENTALS
Brewing delicious coffee is similar to cooking any favorite food. Both
require a good recipe. Proper coffee making requires quality equipment to
precisely control water temperature, volume, and brew time.The BUNN®
Pod brewer assures consistency in your recipe by controlling all of these
elements.The only variables remaining in the recipe are the amount of
coffee and the volume of hot water used to extract the desired flavor.
The amount of coffee is generally determined by the pod size. (Pod
size can vary and is determined by the manufacturer.) For best results, we
recommend following the chart provided in the “Golden Cup Standard”
section. (See Fig. 3, Page 12)
Hot water extracts many elements from the coffee, some desirable,
some not.The amount of coffee used and the amount of water passed
through the coffee determines strength. Increasing the amount of coffee
(by using a larger pod) results in a stronger beverage. Decreasing the
amount of coffee (by using a smaller pod) with the same amount of water,
results in a weaker beverage.Too much water and too little coffee can
result in over-extraction. Over-extracting the coffee can cause an unwanted
bitter taste.
As the amount of coffee decreases, you’ll note an increase in the
bitterness of the beverage.This happens because the hot water begins to
remove the undesirable elements after all of the desirable elements have
been extracted.
Fresh coffee gives the best results. Always store the coffee pods in a
sealed, air tight container. Store in a cool, dry area away from other food
items with strong odors.
BREWING TIPS
When properly brewed, the difference between the best quality coffee
and a poor quality coffee becomes very dramatic. Proper brewing requires
little effort with the BUNN® Pod brewer.
You’ll always have a great coffee experience if you follow these tips:
1) Always start with clean equipment.
2) Always use fresh cold water.
3) Use the chart in the“Golden Cup Standard”section to achieve a consistently
great cup of coffee with a full-bodied flavor and aroma. However, the real
criteria is personal taste. Adjust the recipe until it suits you. If you
need to make a stronger cup of coffee, experiment with less water
or larger pods. The serving size range is 4 oz. to 12 oz. as indicated
on the Volume Control Indicator.

ROUTINE CLEANING
Before beginning any cleaning procedure, unplug the brewer to avoid the
accidental start of a brew cycle.
Clean the pod holder, drip tray and drip tray grate
after each use, using a damp cloth and mild detergent
and rinse. With the pod holder and drip tray removed,
use a damp cloth with mild detergent to wipe the
area below the pod holder and into the drip tray area.
Occasionally, wipe the outside of the brewer with a
damp cloth. (The reservoir, slide lid, pod holder, drip
tray and drip tray grate are dishwasher safe.)
PERIODIC CLEANING/DESCALING
(Recommended At Least Once a Month.)
Periodically, you should clean and descale the brewer to clear any
mineral deposits that may have accumulated due to impurities in the water
source. If these deposits are not removed, they can impair the operation of
the brewer and reduce the product life.
There are several products available specifically for descaling. We
recommend using URNEX® Activated Descaler or JavaClean2 Cleaner and
Descaler, available on our web site: www.bunn.com. (White vinegar can be
used to descale if a descaling product is not available.)
Follow the directions as printed on the manufacturer’s package.
1) Fill the reservoir with descaling product as described by the
manufacturer’s directions, or 1 quart (32 oz.) of
white vinegar. Do not add powder mix directly to
the reservoir. Descaling product must be mixed into a
solution before it is added to the reservoir.)
2) Place an empty pod holder into the brewer. Be
sure the holder is locked into place, and set the
VOLUME CONTROL SLIDE LEVER to the maximum
position. (12 oz.)
3) Place an empty cup or bowl on the drip tray grate
that will hold at least 14 oz. of liquid, and press the
COFFEE BREW BUTTON to start a brew cycle.
4) Once the brew cycle has finished, empty the cup
and set it back onto the drip tray grate. Press the
COFFEE BREW BUTTON again to start a second
brew cycle.
5) Once the brew cycle has finished, empty the
cup and the remaining solution, or vinegar from
the reservoir. Remove the Pod Holder; clean the
reservoir and pod holder thoroughly using a mild
detergent, then rinse.
NOTE: There is now descaling solution in the internal
tank. Follow the manufacturer’s directions if the
solution must be left in the tank for any period of
time. For vinegar, allow the solution to sit for at least
two, but no more that four hours.
6) Fill the reservoir to the maximum line with fresh
clean cold water and place the pod holder back into the brewer.
13
7) Place the empty cup or bowl back onto the drip tray grate and press the
COFFEE BREW BUTTON to begin a brew cycle.
8) When the cycle has finished, empty the cup. Repeat step 7 at least two
more times to remove the solution from the tank.
9) Clean the pod holder with a mild detergent and rinse thoroughly.
10) Proceed to the “Cleaning The Sprayhead/Seal” section.
CLEANING THE SPRAYHEAD/SEAL
1) Press the Power Switch into the off “O” position.
2) Unplug the brewer and allow it to cool down. (Minimum of 1 hour.)
3) After the unit has been allowed to cool, remove the pod holder and set
aside.
4) Using your fingers, rotate the sprayhead/seal
assembly clockwise until the sprayhead and seal are
removed.
NOTE: If the sprayhead and seal are separated, they
must be reassembled as they were when removed from
the brewer.
CAUTION: Improper reassembly could result in
personal injury from scalding water.
NOTE: See “Assembling Sprayhead/Seal” (Page 14) &
“Inspecting Sprayhead Seal” (Page 15) for more information.
5) Clean the sprayhead and seal with a mild detergent and rinse thoroughly.
6) Using your fingers, rotate the sprayhead/seal assembly counter-clockwise
until it is finger tight.
7) Replace the pod holder.
8) Plug in the brewer and press the POWER SWITCH to restore power to
the brewer.
ASSEMBLING THE SPRAYHEAD/SEAL
If the sprayhead and seal are separated during removal or cleaning, they
must be reassembled properly.
Top
1) Identify the top of the seal.The top of the seal that
seats against the roof of the sprayhead ramp has a
rough ridge that can be felt by running your fingers
across the surface of the seal.The bottom is smooth.
2) Identify the top of the sprayhead.The top of the
sprayhead has a star pattern and a threaded hole
where the sprayhead attaches to the brewer.
3) While carefully stretching the seal, guide the
sprayhead into the channel of the seal. Make sure it
is completely in the channel.
When properly assembled, the sprayhead will slide
easily into the channel of the seal and will not cause any
buckles in the surface of the seal. If the sprayhead seems
to be difficult to seat, and you must stretch the seal more
than a slight tug, the assembly is not together correctly.
CAUTION: Improper reassembly could result in
personal injury from scalding water.
14
INSPECTING THE SPRAYHEAD SEAL
When disassembling your brewer for cleaning, inspect the sprayhead
seal for cracks, tears and holes. Although the seal should last for an
extended period of time, damage can occur through handling.
CAUTION: The seal confines the hot liquid to the pod holder. Replace the
seal if it becomes damaged. Parts are available at www.bunn.com.
CLEANING THE POD HOLDER
To prevent residue build up, it is a good idea to periodically disassemble
the pod holder/screen assembly and clean it with a
mild detergent.
1) Press and hold the POD RELEASE BUTTON while
sliding the pod holder out.
2) Flip the POD HOLDER upside down and place the
holder cavity over the palm of your hand.
3) Using a small object, press the tab of the POD
HOLDER INSERT through the hole in the bottom of
the pod holder to remove.
4) Clean the screen and holder using a mild detergent and rinse.
(Dishwasher Safe)
5) Press the insert back through the hole in the bottom of the POD
HOLDER.
P2942
CYCLING THE BREWER
If the brewer has not been used for an extended period of time, it is a
good idea to cycle your brewer before brewing a cup of coffee or tea.
1) Remove the reservoir and pod holder from the brewer, clean with a
mild detergent and rinse.
2) Refill the reservoir to the maximum line.
3) Insert an empty pod holder into the brewer.
4) Set the volume control lever to the maximum setting.
5) Place a bowl or cup on the drip tray grate that will hold at least 14 oz.
6) Press the coffee brew button.
7) When the brew cycle has ended and water drip out has stopped,
carefully remove the pod holder and remove any excess water.
CAUTION: Water is hot!
You are now ready to brew.
STORING THE BREWER
Unplug the brewer and wait for it to cool. If your Pod brewer has been
used, it must be stored above 32° F / 0° C to prevent damage to the internal
water tank. Empty and dry the water reservoir before storing.
NOTE: Water will remain in the internal tank. If stored for an extended
period of time, refer to “Cycling The Brewer” section before using.

TROUBLESHOOTING
SITUATION
Nothing happens when
the COFFEE BUTTON or
TEA BUTTON is pressed.
EXPLANATION
This is the first time you have used your
brewer.
The Initial Brewer Set-up procedure must
be performed first. Please follow the
directions on page 9 before attempting
to run a brew cycle.
Your brewer is not plugged in.
Check to make sure the brewer is
plugged in and the POWER SWITCH
has been turned on. (The POD HOLDER
RELEASE BUTTON - also known as the
BUNN Indicator - will be illuminating
red, indicating power to the brewer.)
The HEATING INDICATOR is lit.
Wait until the indicator goes off before
pressing one of the brew buttons.The
brewer will not start a brew cycle until
the water in the internal tank is heated to
the proper temperature.
The POD HOLDER INDICATOR is lit.
Check to make sure the POD HOLDER is
inserted into the brewer.
If the POD HOLDER is inserted into the
brewer, carefully remove and replace
the POD HOLDER to ensure the POD
HOLDER is locked in place.
Listen for a clicking sound.The click
indicates that the holder has locked into
place.
The REFILL WATER INDICATOR is lit.
The reservoir has run low on water and
needs to be filled above the minimum
mark indicated on the side of the
reservoir.
16
SITUATION
EXPLANATION
The REFILL WATER
INDICATOR has come on.
The WATER RESERVOIR has run low on
water.
Slide the lid open and pour additional
water into the reservoir, or remove the
reservoir and fill it at a sink, or other
water source.
CAUTION: Do not place the brewer in a
sink or other water source. Do not fill
past the Maximum fill line.
The POD HOLDER
INDICATOR has come on.
The POD HOLDER is missing.
Place the pod holder into the machine
and press it firmly into place.
The POD HOLDER is not locked in place.
Carefully remove and re-insert the pod
holder into the machine while listening
for a clicking sound.The POD HOLDER
INDICATOR on the control panel
should go out.
The water shuts off and
comes back on again
when brewing.
The TEA BREW BUTTON has been pressed
to start the brew cycle.
Do NOT press the TEA BREW or
COFFEE BREW button during the
brew cycle. This will stop the brew
cycle. The brewer is using a Pulse
Brew™ technology to steep tea properly.
The water will shut off and turn on
again.This is normal and will take about
45 seconds to complete. Wait for the
blue lights to go out.
NOTE: Although the pulse brew process
can be used for coffee or tea, it is
designed to brew tea. Because the process
of brewing tea is different than coffee,
the brewer works differently when the
TEA BREW BUTTON is used. An “On-OffOn” cycle is used to steep the tea and
provide the maximum flavor extraction.
The action is a cycling of the water flow,
causing the water to go off and come
back on. This is normal.
17
TROUBLESHOOTING (Cont.)
