It is pumping, the problem is a plugged port from the heater section to the cup.

SOURCE: My B70 just starts running water through and

I have taken the beast apart and watched it successfully cycle and fail to cycle.


Warning!!! (DO NOT TRY DIS-ASSEMBLY IT UNLESS YOU KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND RECOGNIZE THE COMPONENTS, You could electrocute yourself and suffer nasty permanent scaring... ouchie!)


I discovered the same as another person claimed a "check value" and/or air leak/lockup. The pump cycles, but can't get water so the machine shuts down to prevent over-heating. (The dreaded "Not Ready").


Solution...


1. Turn off the machine and unplug until it is completely cooled, say 4 hours. (Allows for temperature equalization of the water chamber and the water supply)


2. Completely fill the water reservoir. (The extra water just helps the pump break the air lock).


3. Turn the machine on and wait for the pump to start drawing water.


4. Immediately knock 1-3 times on top of the water reservoir/machine (at the very top of the machine) about as hard as would knocking on a door. (Watch the water level, it should immediately start to drop)


The pitch of the pump should change when the water begins to be drawn into the heating chamber. (you can also hear the water flowing)


The problem is caused by air entering the water supply system. This air provides a "lock" on the system that the pump can't overcome. This can happen due to a number of issues but most issues should be this easy fix.


The machine refills itself 3 times. At Power-on, at beginning of the brew cycle and after the brew cycle.


Watch the machine and any time the pump cycles make sure it draws in water until it shuts down, if it doesn

SOURCE: Keurig B70 brews but only brews a little bit,

Check the reservoir to see if it seems warmer than justified. If so, then the little check valve that causes the pumping action is being blocked by a lime buildup or some other debris particle and not closing when it must to force water into the heating element.
Try pouring some plain white vinegar into the water chamber after emptying, turn the machine on briefly to allow it to start, finally, allow it to sit overnight.
Turn the maker on and pump the remaining vinegar through it without filter or coffee. Rinse the reservoir out and then run clear water through it to remove any remaining vinegar.
If this didn't help, then the check-valve may have failed and would have to be replaced.
Although I wouldn't do it with a friend's coffee maker, I have used Lime Away instead of vinegar but I don't leave it overnight since this can damage the aluminum of the heater element. It hasn't so far, but it can.

Water pump makes a lot of noise when pulling water from tank


You may need to descale the coffee machine... Use white vinegar and put into reservoir and run until reservoir is as empty as it will get. Fill with water and run to clear....I do this twice to make sure the vinegar odor is gone.

Water will not pump through machine to make cup of coffee. Descale indicator light has never come on,but can not even descale because when handle is pushed down,no water is pumped through.


Lift up the water reservoir and drop it back into place. There is a magnet that has to be in the right position and putting the reservoir back into place causes it to go back where it should be. This method has worked for me

Keurig B70 brews but only brews a little bit, continues brewing and dripping. When it shows not ready a bunch of water comes out. Sounds like water is not pumping at all. Water seems to be dripping back...

My B70 loses prime when drawing water from the reservoir. After a few seconds of the pump running and no water being pumped, the unit will automatically shut off. The reservoir is fully seated. Does...


The problem might be common however, Keurig does not have any repair centers around the country, nor do they have schematic drawing available :(. In order to get your problem taken care of you have to call Keurig directly 1.866.901.BREW
