Tip & How-To about Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines

Keurig B70 and other model FIX

This is for everyone who has a problem with Keurig coffee makers. If the system says its not ready, try pulling the empty jug out and pushing it back in (hard) till you hear a click. You might have to attempt this a couple of times. From now on just fill the jug with another cup or pitcher... don't take it out. The other problem that I know of is the water backing up into the tank and not going into your coffee mug and shuts off (or filling less than expected). For this problem you can get an air can spray (computer store) and spray into the piercer nozzle (make sure the system is cold, as to not scald yourself). Or you can use a paper clip to dislodge hardened water in the lines. From now on, do a scheduled run with just water without a kcup and you'll see particles dripping out of the hole. The water lines for Keurigs are way to small and can get clogged.

How do I empty the water from the main reservoir?

  • Turn off the Keurig coffee maker, and unplug the power cord. Allow the unit to cool for 30 minutes before emptying the water. This gives the water inside the hot water tank an opportunity to cool, helping to prevent accidental scalding when emptying.
  • Pull the lid off the top of the water reservoir. Lift the water reservoir straight up and to the right of the coffee maker. Pour out any remaining water in the reservoir into the sink.
  • Turn the small thumb screw on the back of the Keurig coffee maker counterclockwise with your fingers, and pull off the rear access panel. If the screw is too tight to turn with your fingers, use a flat-head screwdriver to turn the screw. Once you remove the access panel, a tube with a plug on the end is visible. Pull the tube out of the plastic clip holder.
  • Place a large pitcher behind the coffee maker. Hold the end of the tube over the pitcher, and pull the plug out of the tube. Allow the water to drain into the pitcher. If necessary, maneuver the coffee maker to the edge of the counter, and hold the pitcher alongside the counter with the top at counter level.
  • Push the plug back into the end of the tube once no more water drains from the hot water tank. Empty the pitcher of water into the sink, and push the tube back into the plastic clip holder. Position the back access panel onto the coffee maker and secure with the thumb screw knob.
