Coffee maker won't start and just beeps when plugged in

When I plug the coffee maker in it just beeps at me and won't turn on. I can press the 1-4 cups button and the grind off button and the lights come on but it won't actually start brewing or do anything for that matter. What should I do? Thank you, Aimee Roth

The door on the top is not closed properly. When you open the top door(cover),you will see a button that is located on the top of the grinder cover. that is a switch that tells the coffee maker that the door is closed and can safely make coffee..please check that all parts are in place and top door(cover) is closed comepletly. good luck.

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?

This coffee maker (10 c maker with grinder) beeps it's done every few minutes with water left. we have to brew about 5 times for a full pot, what gives?

Presume this is the Grind & Brew Thermal™ 10-Cup Automatic Coffeemaker, Model # DGB-600BCC

An instruction booklet is available here:

Review the sections beginning on page 11 of the pdf on Turning Off the Grind Function (if not using the grind feature) and Making Coffee.

Make sure you are turning off the grind function if using preground coffee and that the reservoir lid is securely closed.

Check the Cups Setting button; is sounds like the 1-4 feature may be turned on.

H owdo you clean the machine using the tablet ? Thanks

  1. Turn machine off.
  2. remove group head (portafilter)
  3. place single or dual cup filter in group head.
  4. place rubber bung in group head.
  5. place one tablet in space in bung.
  6. replace group head in machine.
  7. This is where the instructions lead you astray.
  9. Press & hold 1 & 2 cup buttons simultaneously, on their own.
  10. Now press the power button while still holding the 1 & 2 cup buttons.
  11. Cleaning cycle will start, and will take around 5 mins to complete. Book says it will beep 3 times when finished haven't heard this yet. Just wait a couple of minutes extra and all should be well.
  12. Clean me light should be out and tablet disolved if not repeat steps again until tablet disolves.

It wont stop beeping

Is it still beeping? ;) It will beep if you have the automatic brewing programed and the grinder and it's lid are not in place.Once you have put the grinder back in place, push the small white button down that is on the grinder lid. The beeping will stop. Don't press the program button again or it will start beeping again...but if you do, just push that white button again.

Cannot turn off alarm.


The machine will not run if the covers /for the coffee grinder, the filter basket and the machine itself) are not properly closed.
It will beep and stop running if it is turned on when one of the covers is open or if one is opened before the end of the cycle. The beeping will stop as soon as the cover is closed.
To start the machine again, press the ON button.

Hope this will help you.

Coffee maker beeping

Is your grinder in and the lid down? My coffee maker (grind & brew) started beeping after I cleaned it and turned the left knob clockwise with the grinder still disassembled. There's a little button that is depressed when you close the lid with the grinder in there (I'd guess it's a safety feature). I pressed down that button, and the beeping went away.
