All my lights are flashing and they don't want to stop mashene is not working


1. Press the auto off and small cup at the same time. Then Immediately release and re-press the small cup three times.
When it works the only light showing will be the descale light.

2. Press the small cup button then auto off button then release small cup and then auto off, when this works the lights on will be the power button light and the descale light.

ALL OF THE ABOVE DURING THE PROCEDURE MUST BEEN DONE FAST OR RAPIDLY.

3. When both of the above lights are on,(power and descale), unplug for about 3 to 5 seconds... and plug back in. The brewer should come to life and work normally.

How to reset keurig b40


1. There is some confusion over models. I've seen "B40" models and instructions with only one size cup button, both labeled B40. I own one stamped "B40" on the bottom, and it has two buttons -- small and large. FWIW, small = 8 oz, large = 10 oz.

2. These reset instructions from another site seemed to do something
What to Do If Your Keurig Won Brew Cup Barista

So.. this is what I did that worked for mine: 1) Hold down Auto-Off and LARGE cup at same time. (all lights should hold steady ON) 2) press SMALL cup while still holding Auto-Off and LARGE cup 3) Release all three, press LARGE cup again.. all lights should go off. 4) Unplug for about 5 - 10 second, plug back in. SHOULD WORK!

3. On *_my_* B40, remove the K-cup, close the door, fill the reservoir. Unplug and replug the B40. All lights should be off.

Pressing "Auto Off" and "Large Cup" together will turn on 3 lights (Heating, Add Water, Power) for about 3 seconds. Doesn't matter how long the buttons are pressed or what order they are released.

I tried lots of add-on combinations: e.g. press button x, press x multiple times, press x while lights are still on, press x after lights are off, press buttons x and y together, press x then y, press x and/or y while still holding Auto and Large, release Auto but not Large and press x, etc.

Nothing gave any confirmation that a reset was accepted. All lights always turned off after 3 seconds. Maybe Reset is only 1 step, i.e. Auto+Large together?

Keurig Elite B40 not responding after "add water" and "heat" and "power" lights start flashing


Unplug the unit to reset it. That will give you a short term solution. I had the same problem, my machine is only 4 months old. They sent me a new one. I was told that there is no way to fix the problem for good. The unit is defective. Luckily I registered my machine right after I got it, and I kept my receipt They sent me out a new one, free of charge! It took about a week to get it..

After brewing a cup, lights are flashing and it needs to be unplugged to reset to brew


It's time to descale your brewer. Run a full reservoir of pure white vinegar through, and then a full reservoir of water, "brewing" and dumping one cup at a time. You might have to do two reservoirs of vinegar if you've never rescaled it before.

Small cup, add water, heating lights keep flashing after brew


I had this problem too.
I just pressed the small brew button; it pulled some water from the reservoir and heated it but nothing came out. Then I opened and closed the top cop thing and both the cup sizes were flashing and it worked like normal again.

Descaling light on


Per Pages 9 and 10 of Keurig Model B40 Use and Care Guide,
1) turn off the "Auto Off "feature
2) fill empty water reservoir with 48 ozs of undiluted white vinegar.
3. Place ceramic cup on the drip tray and run a brew cycle. Do not use a K-cup!
4. Press the large mug Button
- let Keurig coffee maker fill mug with vinegar & empty in sink.
5. Repeat brew process until water reservoir of vinegar is empty. (remember to open and close lid between each cycle so large mug Button will flash.
6. Rinse the water reservoir thoroughly and fill with fresh water.
7. FINAL STEP RINSE CYCLE
a) place a ceramic cup on the drip tray
b) run regular brew cycles WITHOUT using a K-cup.
c) pour rinse water into sink each time.
d) repeat brew process until water reservoir is empty.
d) perform additional rinse cycles if you notice any residual vinegar taste.
e) if the red "De-scale" light remains illuminated after completing descale and rinse cycles, repeat the descaling procedure above.
Otherwise - you're good to go!
