Default My Bunn Coffeemaker is toast

and I cannot stamp or really do anything without coffee. Anyone have any luck with Bunn warranty? Coffemaker was purchased in June, 2010 and has a three year warranty. Crying alot....anyone wish to share their Bunn warranty experiences? Jeanne

I don't have a warranty story, but I've owned 2 expensive Bunn coffee makers. They lasted quite a while, and I liked them a lot.

After the last one bit the dust, I decided I was tired of spending that much for a coffee maker and just went to Walmart and got a tried and true Mr. Coffee.

It's not as fast, but I decided I could wait a few minutes for the difference in price. The coffee tastes great and I'm only out about $25.

Thanks, Bugga, for your post. Bunn sent a new coffeemaker today without the carafe. I have to mail the old one back at my expense, but that is better than nothing. Also, I think I will use only filtered water in the new coffeemaker -- perhaps that will help prolong coffeemaker life.

I think that's a good idea. I know where I live the mineral build-up is bad on appliances like coffee makers and also, steam irons. I learned my lesson with the last iron that really got ruined by our water. I only use filtered water in my iron now.

Not that I iron that much, lol. Mainly, only when I sew do I get it out to press seams open. Otherwise, my clothes live in the washer and dryer.

Good luck with your renovated Bunn.

I see your point. My other hobbies when I'm not stamping are sewing for my grandchildren, and I do have to press those seams flat, lol. I also like to crochet sometimes in front of the TV.

Since this thread seems to be just you and me, here are some pictures of stuffed toys I sewed for them:

Love your bunnies and snakes, what fun projects. How old are your grandchildren? I have to admit, I could probably put stamping aside long enough to sew some cute projects while wearing my somewhat wrinkled clothing.... Used to sew many things, but only mend now. You may have inspired me enough to sew some little somethings for my two granddaughters.

Jeanne,

Here is a link to a great blog that I follow. She has free patterns from time to time, and also for purchase. The Bunnies are from one of her patterns. Her toys are super cute and whimsical, and easy to do.

She also has lots of good tutorials for various sewing techniques.

I have gotten into making the toys because our youngest daughter has 7 kids from age 12 down to 8 months old! They are so easy to please when they're little, and they love everything I make for them.

Wendi Gratz

No tips but the Bunn company is right here in my town. Want me to go down and sock it to them? No, we love Bunns but eventually gave into the free Gevalia coffee pot deal.

Does your Bunn coffee maker use those coffee pods? If so, I may have some coffee for you! We switched over to Keurig machines in our office and we have a box or two of the Bunn pods leftover -- they are yours if you can use them!

You are so generous to offer but I am not a pod user. Perhaps someone will see this and take you up on your offer. Back to the grounds for me!
