Tip & How-To about Keurig B100 Coffee Maker
Thread approximately 12 inches of 50 lb. nylon fishing line through the opening in the sharp metal point. This threads more easily when the coffee maker is hot. Continue running water through the unit until a full cup is achieved and water runs clear with no coffee grounds.

Always have the presser foot in the UP position when threading the machine. This opens the tension disc to allow the thread to nestle inside the assembly.
Make sure the thread passes through the take up lever
Make sure you inserted the thread in every thread guide
I always recommend a sharp needle. You may not notice any slight bends, burrs or dullness in the needle which would throw off the timing and the stitch quality.
SPOOL CAP - If you have a horizontal spool pin a spool cap is very important. Its also very important the spool cap covers the end of the spool of thread but make sure its not too big or it will throw off the thread tension.
TOP TENSION DIAL - The setting should be between 3 and 5 on most machines.
The best way to know if you threaded the tension assembly correctly is to put the presser foot in the DOWN position. Now take the thread from the right of the tension assembly and pull. Is there tension on the thread or does it pull out very easily? If it pulls out easily you threaded it incorrectly. Try it again
also check under the needle plate for lint
and in the bobbin case area for lint or loose threads
