Overflow in basket

Steven, I think it`s not the filter or the coffee just that more water is flowing into the basket then it can process. I would try lesser quantity of water first to see if it overflows. Try first with filter only and then with coffee. And before you do all that, your machine should be under warranty and may be returnable to the store. Do that and save the trouble of fixing it.

Keurig B100 coffee maker not brewing

KeuSymptom: keurig B100 coffee maker not brewing. If your brewer sounds like it should be brewing but little or no coffee comes out, the problem may be a simple malfunctioning check valve, located on the right hand side of the unit under the plastic cover. If the check valve is clogged or fails, water from the tank leaks into the air pump (located just below the valve) disabling the pump.

The pump that pushes the water out of the tank located on the right hand side of the unit (I included a photo) has a check valve just above it. On my unit the check valve failed allowing water to enter the top chamber of the pump disabling it. The pump was not damaged it just cannot operate correctly with water in it.

Here is the Fix: Disconnect the check valve and make sure it is operating correctly. Mine was clogged with a small amount of mineral deposits, which was cured by a half hour in a glass of vinegar, and a good rinse. Then disconnect the tubing from the top of the pump and run the unit to allowing the water to escape the pump. Make sure there is no water left in any of the tubing between the pump and the check valve, even the smallest amount will disable the pump again. Reconnect everything and it should work.

Good luck and if you find this helpful remember to thump up vote itc3bb7bf.jpg

Keurig won't brew coffee

Take it back for an exchange. Not sure what model you have, but Keurig has a class action law suit going on because of the many problems they are having with their coffee makers. Again, take it back for an exchange (what I did).

We tried the filter to use up our coffee and have had grounds in every cup of coffee since!!! How do I fix it!!

You are probably missing the stopper that goes over the needle. Local ace or true value has them needle is 1/8". Second smallest stopper.

The machine pours too much coffee for an expresso and even for a normal cup. We have been using it for 3 years and this just started a few weeks ago. I reset the machine to factory settings and it still...

You don't mention if you've programmed the quantity since it started behaving strangely, so....
instead of pressing the 'coffee cup ' icon button once, hold it down all the way through the brewing procedure (it will bip) until the correct amount of coffee has been pumped into your cup, then release the button. This quantity has now been programmed into the memory and should produce the same amount of coffee every time, on a sigle press.

My Keurig dispenses about 3oz of water on next to largest setting

I JUST fixed (I Hope!) my 11 month old B60 by taking a paper clip and a straightened safety pin to the top of the coffee maker (where the top pin punctures the top of the cup) and the BOTTOM pin which punctures the bottom of the cup. (remove the bottom dark brown holder by pushing up on it).

After one or two attempts, I ran water through it without the coffee cup, then used a decaf cup and brewed it just fine....

Bunn coffee pot blows water out top of basket

Check the grind on the coffee, brew a pot without coffee and if it overflows, then the machine has a problem. If it doesn't then try a coarser grind on the coffee.
