SOURCE: my Keurig B60, 1 month old is not brewing enough coffee

Check the needle inside the k-cup holder to ensure it isn't clogged. You can completely remove the k-cup holder and rinse it out using your kitchen sprayer to help loosen any debris stuck inside the needle. The needle is what punctures the k-cup and extracts the coffee from within the cup and can become clogged. Make sure when you replace the k-cup holder, that you align the arrows and snap the top or arrow-side in first. If simply rinsing your k-cup holder and needle don't do the trick, try inserting the end of a small paper clip into the needle to push out any remaining debris. This technique is actually recommended by the manufacturer, so it won't void any warranty or damage the needle. After replacing the k-cup holder back into the machine, try brewing a cup of coffee to see if it did the trick.

As a side-note, if you regularly use any "Hot Cocoa" k-cups, you need to make sure and immediately brew a cup of just hot water (no k-cup) to help clean it out and prevent the needles from clogging. The Hot Cocoa k-cups are notorious for clogging the needles up thus causing the problem you described above.

Hope that helps...best of luck!

SOURCE: coffee grounds in the cup

since you said usually... I suspect the rubber seal that surrounds the top needle is not seating well...
you can verify this by making a beverage with a k-cup and, just before the water starts, add a little hand pressure to the K-cup arm pushing down a little bit... not hard...
If it consistently makes a good beverage, then we focus our attention to that piece of the brewer...
when the consistency of the water changes, it tells me to look for leaks or unusual percolation of water...

you can verify the K-cup holder is ok... but another way to simulate the hand pressure is to put a shim of some sorts under the lip of the k-cup... like the thickness of a couple sheets of paper under the rim... not the actual k-cup... but the k-cup holder... raising it up a smidge is the same as the slight hand pressure...

I would look to see if the rubber seal has come loose around the top needle....

SOURCE: I have a platinum Keurig coffee maker. I descale

Dear Rschles2,
I too own a Keurig Platinim.. I haven't a solution for your problem but I can tell you that your description of it is right on... I have had the same problem. Every month or two, my Keurig will decide I need a large cup rather than the size I chose. I've found no way to solve it... even unplugging the machine doesn't help. In the end, I remove my Kcup, and let the machine process a large cup of water. After that, it runs perfectly.... well, until the next time the Ghost appears.

I would start with the basics. Get the quick start manual and follow the instructions. If that does not work then the pump or controling circuirty has failed. I have attached a link for the quick start guide.

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.

Keurig Platinum is clogged


1. Power off machine.

2. Using a metal paperclip, insert it into left side of top needle. It must insert at least 1" deep. Insert it into slot on right side and again from back of needle.

3. Remove KCup cradle. Separate bottom from top. In the top section, insert the paperclip up into bottom needle from the bottom upwards. It will not go all the way thru and this is normal.

4. Reassemble KCup cradle and reinsert it back into coffee maker.

5. Power on machine.

6. Brew a cup of water only. There may be coffee grounds in the water and these should eventually clear during the remaining steps. NOTE: A large cup brew cycle should output a full 8 ounces (235cc). Less means there is still a blockage

7. Empty reservoir and fill with undiluted distilled white vinegar. Repeatedly run brewing cycle until Add Water light comes on.

8. Make sure Auto-OFF is NOT set and let last cycle of vinegar remain inside machine for 4 hours.

9. Refill reservoir with fresh water and repeatedly run brewing cycle until the water is clear and odorless.

10. Set Auto-OFF, if preferred.

My Keurig platinum B70 will not pump water through the system. It says "Ready to Brew",I push the brew button, it says "Brewing", but nothing happens. It also defaults to the largest cup size, and will not...


Please get a hold of the company at the number in the manual, they will send you a new one if they cannot fix it. Magic words, I got it as a gift three months ago, it worked fine until now. Worked on mine. Sending out a new one today. This company works with you until you are happy. and I am getting 4 boxes of coffee! Free!
