Question about Keurig B60 Coffee Maker

1 Answer

Pump seems to be running but no water is drawn from reservior and shuts off after some time

I haven't used the brewer for couple of months and when I turned on the pump seems to be running but no water is being drawn. It humms for a while and shuts off. I actually took off the bottom and saw the water pump actually rotating. Looks like it is getting obstructed ahead or not getting enough power to push the water. In the past when I put the reservior it used to take in little bit of water as I see bubbles but now I don't see any bubbles. Any help is appreciated?

SOURCE: Not Brewing

We have had this problem intermittently but we had a bigger problem that I solved yesterday. Our LCD display was not displaying properly - words were missing so we just had to guess when it was ready to brew. I called Keurig and they offered a new one for $100 since it was out of warranty. They did ask me if I had descaled the machine and, I'm embarassed to say, I had never done that. Well I descaled the machine and viola! - my LCD display completely came back just like new! Here's hoping the intermittent brewing problem is resolved as well! If you haven't descaled the machine recently, I would strongly suggest giving that a try for any problems you might be having. Of course, to descale, the machine has to at least be able to brew in order to get the vinegar through the machine...

SOURCE: pump does not prime, sometimes does not move water

I had a similar problem and I found the symptoms misleading! I used a pin to clean the upper needle and I found that after I did that the pump worked again. Not 100% sure it will work everytime, but cheap and worth a try!

SOURCE: pump is running but no water is being drawn from the reservoir

I haven't had this happen where nothing is being dispensed, but if you have small portions being dispensed or the pump is noisy, I tried 2 things that work for me:
1) remove the reservoir and over your kitchen sink, with water still inside the reservoir, use your pinky finger, small chopstick, etc, and gently push the inlet valve a few times from underneath to let water out. After about 2-3 months, our unit seems to stick (rubber seal that closes),
2) put some vinegar into the reservoir with some water and run the unit about 3-4 times on largest cup setting. Clean out the reservoir, replenish with fresh water and run the unit another 6 times. Believe me, you need to flush the vinegar out well, otherwise any residue in your coffee will not only taste bad, it will curdle your milk/cream. I've had my B70 Platinum for 15 months making about 8 cups everyday, Hope this helps..:D

My cuisinart keurig coffee maker won't brew. It


Try this.

There are a number of ways to descale a brewer, the least expensive being to run some vinegar through the machine a couple of times, and then run cold water through a few more times to rinse it.

However, simply trying to clear the lines often doesn't work. And as you will see from the many comments below, by far the most reliable way to get your Keurig brewer working again is the "Slap and Burp" method.

Here is how you do it.

First, unplug the brewer and remove both the water reservoir and drip tray.

Next, hold the brewer upside down over the sink and slap the base a few times. And I mean really slap it.

Now put everything back together and try brewing again. Most of the time this works with a couple of good slaps. If not, try it again.

And don't worry, there are no laws against giving your Keurig a good slapping!

Good luck!

Coffee maker never makes proper size, almost always have to run it 2-3 times to get even a small mug. Intermittently shuts off completely, have to turn it on in back. (B70)


Sorry to read about your issue.

The brewer should be de-scaled at least every 3-6 months. Scale is harmless, but if left unattended, it can hinder optimal brewer performance. De-scaling your brewer regularly helps maintain the heating element, removable water reservoir and other parts of the brewer that come in contact with water. Better water quality and water heating means a better cup of coffee, tea, hot cocoa or iced beverage. We recommend de-scaling your brewer at least every 6 months (every 3 months if your water has a high mineral content). The de-scaling process involves using 48 ounces of undiluted white vinegar.

Take 48 oz of white vinegar. place in tank. pretend you are making coffee (Do No Use K Cup). let the water fill you mug. then empty that mug. Do it again until tank is empty. then let sit for 4 hours.
Then fill with fresh water to the top. let that tank of water run thru. towards the end taste the water.
If you taste vinegar..use more clean water, until the taste is ok.

After brewing, unit occasionally fails to refill tank and shuts self off. Usually if unit is turned back on, it will refill.

Machine keeps shutting down,pump won't draw water into machine and then shuts off. Have to turn off and on many many times before it will start picking up water and recyle the machine. Machine is only 2...


These brewers (especially B77, usually from Costco) are defective & Keurig is replacing them with new units @ no cost. Just call the toll free # (866-901-2739) & they will ship out a replacement in 3 to 10 business days. I own (2) of these & they have both been replaced. Even if not the above mentioned model, call them anyway & see what they will do for you......
