New Keurig B140 will not pump or prime

Got a new B140 and when you try to prime it vibrates like a cat in a clothes dryer but does not draw in any water. Appears the pump has no suction. Anyone got any ideas? I'm going to try and figure out how to get into the guts of the machine now to see if I can find a line loose

    Our Keurig B60 SE will not prime after following the instructions 4 - 5 times over a hour period.

    Have a B66 that will not take it's first prime. filled with water, hit button, it shook but just for a 1/2 sec then has been blinking not ready for the last 20 minutes.

    I picked up a Beville version of this coffee maker last night and had the same problem -- no water drawn during prime or brew mode. Took it back this morning for a new one and had the same problem. Think I'm going to get my money back today -- maybe try another store in case my local store (Bed Bath & Beyond) got a bad batch or something.

    Sometimes it works and then the next time it doesn't pump. This machine is two months old!

    i think i have the same prob.......turned it off last night before it finished sucking up its water...........woke up this morning and it doesn't work..........so will try your technique, and then it will be tap tap, slam slam, and toss in garbage..........the funny thing is, just finished filling out a survey yesterday on my coffee maker, nothing but good things to say..............strange.........

    I finally got this dog to work. Using a technique offered by someone on the list I took a large syringe made for injecting meat, built a gasket to fit the water intake and force fed it several syringes of water till it finally primed and started taking the water by itself. The problem is obviouysly with the prime cycle. Don't be shy either. It took a lot of pressure one the syringe before it would take any water at all but it did force it to prime.

On the water reservoir there is a little black disk, a magnet, I think... If that is not against the machine it will display the prime error. Empty the water from the reservoir and tilt it so that the disk is against the machine. Place the reservoir empty back on the machine and fill it with water carefully as not to move the disk. When the water level gets to the correct position, the prime error will go away.

Our brand new B140 experienced the same problem as many others - not able to prime. After calling customer service and trying all of the slamming and switching on and off techniques they recommended, the machine still did not work. After removing the metal bottom cover plate, I was able to trace the problem to the check valve, located about an inch away from the water intake opening. The valve is wrapped with foam (I presume) for vibration dampening. I cut off the plastic tie wrap that secures the connection of the water intake tube (with the check valve) to the pump. I disconnected the intake tube from the pump and filled the section of the tube leading to the pump with water (I used a syringe for convenience). Re-connect the tube and put a new tie wrap around the connection. The pump is now primed. Reinstall the bottom cover plate. Problem fixed. I surmised that the check valve creates the air lock between the water intake and the pump, not allowing water to flow into the pump.

We found the water tubing was totally disconnected on the inside of the maker. The must get shaken around alot during shipping and the hose comes away from the other hose. It will require opening the bottom of the machine and reconnecting the hoses. Then put everything back together and TRY again. Ours works now after my husband did what I wrote above. Now it primes and is ready to use.

I was able to fix my B70. Same problem - would not prime.

I tilted the machine all ways, especially backwards, while turning on/off, and pressing buttons, finally got to BREW. Of course it did not brew, but it did try to Brew - just no water came out. But if I kept rotating it slowly as I hit brew after about 4-5 cycles the pump starting drawing quite a bit of water. I also did the tap-tap (slam-slam) technique. It seem by forcing gravity to do the work you can get a suction going. Once the pump was full and a LOT of water was taken in by the internal reservoir the B70 worked.
Took about 15 minutes of trial-error. Lots of rotating. Do it over a sink, because it will drip as you rotate. Hold the water tank down tightly - to help with the suction. Good luck

My keurig b70 coffee maker says prime. sounds like the pump works for awhile then stops. prime lights up on the screen and doesnt let me do anything else why


Mine would brew the first cup fine, then the pump would run but would not draw water from the reservoir. I turn it off, turn it back on it would draw water for one cup then would not draw water again. I unplugged it waited 30 seconds and plugged it back in, assuming that would reset the electronics. It worked fine following the PDPU (power down, power up) procedure. Simply turning it off will NOT reset the processor, you MUST unplug the unit. Remember to wait 30 seconds or so prior to plugging the unit back in.

My Keurig is running very slowly. We have descaled it and it still pumps slow. Any other suggestions because I love this machine. It is about 3 years old. Thanks.


This usually means this unit is toast:(. if off warrenty you might need to buy a new one. try getting a comercial b140 or 150 as they are a little more robust.

Won't draw water from the resevoir.


It's a known problem with keurigs pump. Call Keurig, they will have you send back the original cup from your machine in a padded envelope and they will send you a new machine and direct you to throw the old one out.

I am trying to get my Faema Contessa espresso machine to draw up the water from its holding container, any ideas on how to prime its pump?


Vibration pumps usually make this when they stay long without work, sometimes they are remaining useless after this, you can try to open steam valve and to try pumping inn the water, if it does not helps, YOU MUST open the device, remove pump and blow her with compressed air few times, (they have two sensitive non return valves on the outlet). After blowing try it with water outside the device and see if she draws. If you recover the old one just put it in place and continues to work. If not than you must buy new pump
