Question about Keurig B70 Coffee Maker

3 Answers

Slow coffee stream and smaller brew size with B70

Keurig B70 11 months old.

Cleaned B70 in accordance with manual (white vinegar) end of October and it worked fine - Thanksgiving week lots of use - really slowed down and brewed small cups (1/2 to 2/3 of size selected).

Cleaned again (per manual except I used whole gallon of vinegar) and it seemed to work better flushing water through. But still too slow and small with K-Cup (Timothy's).

We always fill unit with water from refridgerator (has filter/charcoal cartridge etc for ice maker) and we do not have especially hard water.

I do not hear or see an air pressure blow out at end of cycle (although that was evident when flushing water at the end of a cleaning proceedure).

Does this sound like a scaling problem, or could it be a weak pump??

    Our keurig B70 is no longer pushing the water through the k-cup. Without the cup, the hot water comes out just fine.

I had the same problem. In my case the needle that pierces the cup was clogged. All you need to do is unfold a paperclip (small and not plastic coated) and push it down through that needle to clear the blockage.

My unit works better then ever!

This solution worked really well. Coffe maker works like new. One issue now, however: The little red rubber/foam disc that surrounded the top piercing needle came off, and won't stick back on. Any ideas for how to adhere that back on?

My keurig 2.0 will not brew. Everything works fine up until you press the brew button. It sounds like it is going to brew for about a half a second and then it just stops. A fee drops of wwater come o


If it is an older one it has probably limed up and needs cleaned with white vinegar. Run through it repeatedly until things come out clean & not cloudy.
