Keurig has a good warranty program. I would return it and get a new one.

Can you jam something plastic under the float so that it is up as high as it will go and try again. If that doesn't fix it then the problem is likely to be the sensor behind the housing in line with the float.

When everything else that you tried fails... like descaling with vinegar and leave it for 15-24 hrs 2-3x before brew rinsing), or the paper clip on both top and bottom punchers cleaning, or turning it upside down and giving it a shake, or cleaning the water reservoir entrance. then, for the last resort, before deciding on replacing the diaphragm pump... open the bottom metal part, inspect for any visible drip of water (accumulation of white hard water stains, or discoloration on the metal) visualize where it's coming from. Mine is on 2 spots, from the diaphragm pump (where there's 3 black screws) and where the connection of the main pump to the reservoir. This good news, it means nothing wrong with the pumps. it's been leaking water so the connection is the only problem (must be air tight). The common sense FIX: depress the metal clamp and pull the plastic tube out, clean the inside and the connection and re-attach it back making sure the little leak will stop. Replace the other one with a new tie wrap and make sure it's air tight.

1. Power off machine.

2. Using a metal paperclip, insert it into left side of top needle. It must insert at least 1" deep. Insert it into slot on right side and again from back of needle.

3. Remove KCup cradle. Separate bottom from top. In the top section, insert the paperclip up into bottom needle from the bottom upwards. It will not go all the way thru and this is normal.

4. Reassemble KCup cradle and reinsert it back into coffee maker.

5. Power on machine.

6. Brew a cup of water only. There may be coffee grounds in the water and these should eventually clear during the remaining steps. NOTE: A large cup brew cycle should output a full 8 ounces (235cc). Less means there is still a blockage

7. Empty reservoir and fill with undiluted distilled white vinegar. Repeatedly run brewing cycle until Add Water light comes on.

8. Make sure Auto-OFF is NOT set and let last cycle of vinegar remain inside machine for 4 hours.

9. Refill reservoir with fresh water and repeatedly run brewing cycle until the water is clear and odorless.

10. Set Auto-OFF, if preferred.

Shut-off valve failed, retry a second time and it will reset accordingly.

if the unit is built for 110 bolts and it is plugged into 220 volts, either the unit or the outlet circuit breaker is the problem. Circuit breaker can be reset - not so much for the coffee maker.

Check the circuit breaker and then see if another appliance will work. If not, the circuit needs troubleshooting. If the circuit works, then have the coffee maker serviced.

Cleaning & descaling your Keurig brewer is an important step to enjoying the best tasting coffee and keeping your brewer in good shape for years.

How often you need to do it depends heavily on how often you use your brewer and how "hard" your local water is ("hard" meaning how many minerals are in it). I try to do this 3-4 times a year.
Comment Recommended For You 3 640x960.jpg

Open the top of your brewer and remove the K-cup holder. CAUTION: There's are two sharp needles in there. Be careful.
Comment 4 640x960.jpg

The cup holder is dishwasher safe. You can toss it in the dishwasher if you want. Otherwise a good rinse under warm running water is usually good. There's a sharp needle in here, so be careful.
Comment 5 640x960.jpg

Turn the cup holder over and ensure these holes at the bottom are free of any obstruction.
Comment 6 640x960.jpg

The drip-tray is removable. Give it a good clean either by hand or in the dishwasher.
Comment 7 640x960.jpg

The upper portion of the K-cup holder also has a needle. This needle has three holes in it. Insert a straightened paper clip into each hole to remove any buildup or obstructions.
1 Comment 8 640x960.jpg

Here's a close up: There's nothing you can break in here, so use some force and get that paperclip a good inch in and wiggle it around vigorously. Repeat this for the two other holes in the needle.
1 Comment 9 640x960.jpg

Use a damp, soft cloth to wipe away any coffee grinds or water stains in and around the cup holder area, and down the front of the brewer.
Comment 10 640x960.jpg

Be careful of that needle inside when wiping it down.
Comment 11 640x960.jpg

Put the K-cup holder back in the chamber. Make sure it's the right way around by aligning the arrows at the top of the holder.
Comment 12 640x960.jpg

Empty the water in the brewer's external reservoir.
2 Comments 13 640x960.jpg

Refill the reservoir with undulated white vinegar and replace on your brewer.
1 Comment 14 640x960.jpg

Run four large cup brew cycles. DO NOT use a K-cup, just run it empty . Dispose of the hot vinegar after each. This pushes the vinegar through the inside heating tank as well as all the valves inside.
2 Comments 15 640x960.jpg

Leave your brewer to stand, powered on for four hours. This allows the vinegar time to break down any build up in the tubes and valves inside the brewer.
1 Comment 16 640x960.jpg

Discard any leftover vinegar then refill the reservoir with water only.
Comment 17 640x960.jpg

Run large cup cycles until "Add Water" is displayed on your brewer's screen. This washes out all traces of vinegar from the insides of the system.
Comment 18

If you notice a vinegar-like smell or taste to the water coming out of your brewer, refill the reservoir with water a second time and run hot water cycles until empty.

With unit powered on, Select Menu button, scroll down, and turn "auto off" to off selection. Cup size is selected after you put K Cup in. The display should flash on a default (1 of 5) cup sizes. You can manually change to the size you want. Alternatively, you can select the Menu button and change the default cup size (same process as stated above).
