There is a way to repair leaking Bunn coffeemakers, and it's not as complicated as you may think.

First, you need to determine the cause of the leak. If your Bunn coffee machine doesn't have a timer option, don't leave water in the tank overnight or for extended lengths of time. Be aware that these coffee makers are not designed to hold water for a long time so they will leak into the decanter if this is the case.

To solve this problem, empty the water from the tank and only fill it when you're ready to brew coffee. You should have no more leaking coffee maker after this.
