Keurigs with Side tank not pumping water

Those of you having a pumping problem with the Keurigs with side maounted tanks. It seem that the screen in the base when you liftout the tank you can see it, has a tendency to vapor lock due to the small mesh and pump height. I corrected this by putting 4 larger holes in the screen which is plastic with a pointed object just be careful not to go to far down or you will puncture the hose for the pump. After doing so I have not had a problem with my pump supplying water for the last 2 weeks to the heat tank, if your pump is not humming or working this will not work. This is a fix for those that remove the tank and set it back and the pump works when this is done you are forcing water through the screen breaking the vapor lock so try it, if it works fine

i received a coffee marker about 3 years ago and it always only made 1/4 cups of coffee i never thought anything about it until i went over a friend of mine they have the same one and theres make 3 differnt sizes


Clean it out. If there is a partial clog, some Keurigs will pump some of the water back into the tank. See if this is happening when you brew. Then clean the brew head water input (stick a paper clip or similar up the shaft and wiggle it). If this is still a problem, replace the filter in the water tank.

its not real hateful especially if the tank is low on fuel....you need to drop the tank out of the vehicle....the electrical connecto is on the drivers side in front of the tank mounted to the frame,,,,disconnect the fuel lines and undo the nuts holding the 2 straps...lower the tank and there is a plastic ring holding the pump in...loosen it counter clockwise and remove the pump
