Hi,

Sorry for the delay, i have bean in hospital.

I think you have to replace the boiler in the machine if it leaks under the machine.
When you have change the boiler make sure to descale your machine regurlarly to make sure you not get calcium in the system. It is the calcium that broke down the boiler (gasket in the boiler).

Best regards

I had the same problem. I own 2 of the same machine. They have a limited life and need to be refurbished every 2-3 years. As far as I know there's only one guy who does this. He's in Vancouver WA. His company is Espresso Resource Northwest......Here's the link: http://www.espressoresourcenw.com/. He does great work at a very reasonable price. He also sells refurbished versions of your machine for about half the price of a new one.

My Keurig B40 has three different size cup sizes available, but it dispenses the same amount of water for the medium size cup and the large cup of coffee. It's barely been used so It doesn&am


I realize you think it does not need descaling to to it 'not being used much.'
However you may have hard water and I would think descaling is definitely worth a try. There might be scale built up on the water level probes in you machine.

Descaling Details are listed below:

Brewer Model: Elite B40 ' Classic B44
Special Edition B60 ' Platinum B70

To begin, you will need the following:
• 48 ounces of undiluted white vinegar
• Large ceramic mug (do not use a paper cup)
• Access to an empty sink

PREPARE
Step 1:
Empty the water in the Water Reservoir.

Step 2:
Disable "Auto Off features."

FILL AND CLEAN
Step 1:
Pour approximately 48 ounces of the vinegar into the Water Reservoir.

Step 2:
Place a large mug on the Drip Tray Plate and run a brew cycle.

(DO NOT USE A K-CUP)

Just press the BREW Button. Pour the contents of the large mug into the sink.

Step 3:
Repeat the brew process without a K-Cup until "ADD WATER"
is indicated.

Step 4:
Now let the Brewer stand for at least 4 hours while still on.

Step 5:
Discard any residual vinegar and rinse the Water Reservoir thoroughly.

RINSE
Step 1:
Ensure the Water Reservoir is filled with fresh water.

Step 2:
Place a large mug on the Drip Tray Plate and water brew cycle. Pour the contents of the large mug into the sink.

Step 3:
Repeat brew process until "ADD WATER is indicated.

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

Bosch tassimo T65 - water draining in to drip tray possible cause and resolution


I had a problem on my Tassimo T65 where water was entering the bottom drip tray through the small hole at the rear. It seems many people have this problem but after researching on line there is little help although I found on this sit how to take the coffee maker apart and from that thread the possible cause for my own issue.
So if your machine seems to be leaking from the small drain hole to the rear of the drip tray try this before you think it is either in need of specialist repair by Bosch at a cost almost the same as a new machine or before you start to take it apart and have a look yourself.
CAUSE - The water is coming from the drain hole because the pressure valve at the top of the machine is blocked with calcium deposits through prolonged use without descaling sufficiently.
SOLUTION - Purchase a good quality coffee machine descaler. Sit the whole coffee machine in a tray or large oven tray so you can collect the overflowing descaler throughout the process, it's not economical to waste this solution. Remember to clean down and dry the coffee maker each time.
Use at least half strength descaler do not water it down more than 1:1
Follow the descaling process by inserting the yellow disc and holding the start button down for 3 seconds.
Repeat this process several times, recovering the fluid leaking in to the tray and cup or container. If you start to see small lumps being dispelled in to the cup try to remove these for further descaling.
After several cycles you should notice that the leaking or flow of water from the bottom drain hole becomes less until it stops. To force the dissolving scale out of the pressure valve try running the normal clean cycle but with the descaling solution, the flow is longer and will help flush the restriction.
After a number of descaling and clean cycles the leak or flow from the drain hole will have stopped, if not continue till it does.
Note: I ran cycles for about 2 hours with periods of rest to allow the solution to do its work.
Now the leak or flow has stopped clean out the reservoir and replace with clean water and run at least 4 clean and rinse cycles.
i hope this works for you and now enjoy your coffee.

Display reads descale, what can i do to fix this


Descaling the Brewer Mineral content in water varies from place to place. Depending on the mineral content of the water in your area, calcium deposits or scale may build up in your Brewer. Scale is non-toxic, but left unattended, it can hinder the Brewer's performance. Descaling your Brewer helps maintain the heating element and other internal parts of the Brewer that come in contact with water.
NOTE: Do not use water that has been treated by a 'water softener'. The increase in sodium levels in the water can cause scaling in the brewer and hinder its performance.
The Brewer should be descaled every 3-6 months to ensure optimal performance. It is possible for calcium deposits to build up faster, making it necessary to descale more often. This Brewer is equipped with sensors to detect when scale buildup is interfering with the performance of the Brewer. When this is detected, the LCD screen will indicate 'DESCALE'.
NOTE: The Brewer will continue to operate even when the LCD screen indicates 'DESCALE'.
However, if you do not descale the Brewer soon after it is displayed, continued scale buildup could damage the Brewer. If this occurs, 'DESCALE' will begin to flash, alerting you to the potential damage to the Brewer if you do not descale immediately. Promptly follow these steps each time the LCD screen indicates 'DESCALE' to ensure that the Brewer functions optimally.

DESCALING The Saphira has an integrated descaling program. The procedure takes about 60 minutes. Once started, the descaling procedure may not be stopped. • When acid-containing descalers are used, immediately remove any splashes or drops on sensitive surfaces, particularly from natural stone and wood surfaces. Also, take the appropriate safety precautions. • Turn off the Saphira by pressing the "ON/OFF" button. • Press the button "Descale" until an acoustic signal is heard. • Display: EMPTY DRIP TRAY (Fig.1) • Display: INSERT AGENT IN TANK • Display: PRESS DECALCIFYING Dissolve 2 DESCALING tablets completely in 2.5 cups of water in a vessel and pour the mixture into the empty water tank. Place a sufficiently large container under the steam tube and the coffee delivery outlet. • Press the Descale button • Display: UNIT DECALCIFYING • Display: PLEASE WAIT • An acoustic signal is heard. • Display: EMPTY DRIP TRAY (Fig.1) • Display: FILL WATER TANK • Display: PRESS DECALCIFYING • Press the Descale button • Display: UNIT DECALCIFYING • Display: PLEASE WAIT • An acoustic signal is heard. • Display: EMPTY DRIP TRAY • Display: CLEAN CONTACTS

What is de-scale?


Descaling removes the deposits left behind from hard water. These mineral deposits will slow heat transfer if not removed from the heating element. To descale the coffee maker, use 48 oz of undiluted vinegar (household strength) and have a large ceramic mug to hold the output. Empty any water in the reservoir. Pour vinegar into the Water Reservoir and fill to the top of edge of the clear viewing area. Place a mug in the drip tray and press the Large Cup Button. (Do not use a K-cup.) When the brew cycle finishes, pour the contents of the mug into the sink.

Repeat the brew cycle until the reservoir is empty. Open and close the lid between cycles. When the reservoir empty, fill with water and let the coffee maker stand for 4 hours with the unit ON. After four hours, rinse the coffee maker by doing several brewing cycles (again without a K-cup). Discard the liquid after each brew cycle and repeat until the reservoir is empty.

You may need to perform additional brew cycles if you notice a residual taste.

For more information, including a pdf with the directions for descaling of the coffee maker, see http://www.keurig.com/customer-service/brewer-registration-and-support/frequently-asked-questions .
I hope this helps.

Tassimo red light stays on ran descaling disc twice


After many months, I solved the problem of the red light staying on the Tassimo Coffee Maker. Use these easy steps.
1. Fill a 2 cup measuring cup with hot water.
2. Mix in descaler.
3. Pour in the empty water tank.
4. Put the yellow cleaning disk in the chamber and close chamber. Put the two cup measuring cup under the spout.
5. Push and hold the brew button for about 3 seconds (until the red and green light flash.
6. Now don't touch the machine. It will do it's thing for about 20 minutes. (Don't be impatient and start to push buttons, just leave it)
7. When it finishes it's cycle. The red light will turn off. Then clean the water tank and put fresh water and run clean water through the brewing cycle 4 times. Your machine is now ready for use.
