Question about Keurig B60 Coffee Maker

2 Answers

When I place the cup in and put down the cover, only 2 options light up instead of the usual three. And at times it just won't brew at all.

The Keurig used to light up all 3 options for the size of the cup but now only lights up 2 of them. At times it won't brew at all and appears unresponsive.

You have heat fatigue and more likely than not the components in your maker are gummed up, so to speak, with dried up coffee fumes and spillage.

You'll need to disassemble everything, clean them up and and reassemble them again. Short of that working you've got a blown out or fatigued electronic chip and only factory service will help you or a local small appliance repair shop should do it for you.

Leave it unplugged for a couple of hours, if it still gives the trouble there may be liqid or oxide on the switches, or the controls ar faulty.

All my lights are flashing and they don't want to stop mashene is not working

1. Press the auto off and small cup at the same time. Then Immediately release and re-press the small cup three times.
When it works the only light showing will be the descale light.

2. Press the small cup button then auto off button then release small cup and then auto off, when this works the lights on will be the power button light and the descale light.


3. When both of the above lights are on,(power and descale), unplug for about 3 to 5 seconds... and plug back in. The brewer should come to life and work normally.

I am descaling my Keurig for the 2nd time, it fills 2 cups w/vinegar and stops and won' start again, tells me its ready, help

A. Prepare
Step 1: Make sure you have 48 ounces of white vinegar on hand. You will also need an empty sink and a ceramic mug (Do not use a paper cup.)
Step 2: Empty the water in the water reservoir
B. Fill and Clean
Step 1: Pour the vinegar into the water reservoir and fill it to the top edge of the clear viewing area.
Step 2: Place a ceramic cup in the drip tray and run a brew cycle. DO NOT USE A K-CUP...just press the large cup button. Pour the contents of the cup into the sink.
Step 3: Repeat the brew process until the water reservoir is empty, pouring the contents of the cup into the sink after each cycle. Remember to open and close the lid between each cycle.
Step 4: Now fill the reservoir with fresh water and let the brewer stand for 4-hours while it is still on.
C. Rinse
Step 1: Ensure the water reservoir is filled with fresh water.

Step 2: Place a ceramic cup on the drip tray and run a regular brew cycle. Once again, DO NOT USE A K-CUP...Pour the contents of the cup into the sink.

Step 3: Repeat the brew process until the water reservoir is empty.

Step 4: You may need to perform additional brew cycles if you notice any residual taste.

How to reset keurig b40

1. There is some confusion over models. I've seen "B40" models and instructions with only one size cup button, both labeled B40. I own one stamped "B40" on the bottom, and it has two buttons -- small and large. FWIW, small = 8 oz, large = 10 oz.

2. These reset instructions from another site seemed to do something
What to Do If Your Keurig Won Brew Cup Barista

So.. this is what I did that worked for mine: 1) Hold down Auto-Off and LARGE cup at same time. (all lights should hold steady ON) 2) press SMALL cup while still holding Auto-Off and LARGE cup 3) Release all three, press LARGE cup again.. all lights should go off. 4) Unplug for about 5 - 10 second, plug back in. SHOULD WORK!

3. On *_my_* B40, remove the K-cup, close the door, fill the reservoir. Unplug and replug the B40. All lights should be off.

Pressing "Auto Off" and "Large Cup" together will turn on 3 lights (Heating, Add Water, Power) for about 3 seconds. Doesn't matter how long the buttons are pressed or what order they are released.

I tried lots of add-on combinations: e.g. press button x, press x multiple times, press x while lights are still on, press x after lights are off, press buttons x and y together, press x then y, press x and/or y while still holding Auto and Large, release Auto but not Large and press x, etc.

Nothing gave any confirmation that a reset was accepted. All lights always turned off after 3 seconds. Maybe Reset is only 1 step, i.e. Auto+Large together?

I have had my Kuerig coffee maker for over a year now which I believe means it's no longer under warranty. However, I paid quite a lot for it so I'd really like to see if I can have it repaired...

unfortunatly keurig treats any home model as throwaway once warrenty is up. They even do the same with mostcommercial models. By the sounds of your problems its time for a new one. sorry. try for a b145 or b150 they are a little more robust.

Unit will not brew when pod is inserted; works w/o pod however.

This may be one of two issues:
1. The pump is malfunctioning which can cause the internal reservior to not completely fill which causes issues during brewing. My unit dribbled random amounts of water instead of brewing for about a week before the pump died completely.
2. The puncture seal isn't in the right position. Open the Keurig fully so you can see the sharp puncture pin. Very Carefully push the black rubber gasket around it all the way up. Then pull it back down about 1/16". Brew a cup, if the problem continues, try sliding the gasket further down by increments of 1/32".
