My B31 Kuerig has started steaming when brewing? Normal?

I really have no idea, my Kuerig has done nothing like this, I guess I would make sure that everything has been changed and cleaned recently, etc...filters, reservoir....I guess I would wonder if you made anything like hot chocolate or ice tea? You may need to run just plain water through to get rid of any blockage or sugar crystals. ...check the K cup and funnel for any residue....clean if necessary. Maybe a descaling is in order, using white vinegar.
Hope this helps...sorry could not offer any more assistance.

Water light not going out, even when full. Not able to make coffee

the water tank has a float inside, the float has a magnet. the machine senses the position of the magnet and indicates water ok/not. sometimes the magnet rusts inside the plastic casing, renders it less magnetic so it wont work. or the float is missing- fell out while you were cleaning the tank. you will need a new magnetic float to fix the problem.

Keurig b31 brewer is not bewing 2 week old machine

Important discovery I wanted to share.

My B31 Kuerig worked great for over a year, then suddenly seemed unable to spit out any coffee or even water when no coffee pack was loaded. Descaling did nothing to fix ... only a drop or two of water (or vinegar) could flow out the machine.

I was able to fix it by clearing grounds stuck in the holes of the TOP needle, NOT the needle opening in the funnel for the bottom of the cups.

The instruction manual for the B31 does not tell you to clean the top needle ... it just says how to clean the funnel and the bottom (exit) needle ... but the Kuerig video on YouTube does explain where to find the top needle and how to clear it of a jam from corrosion or coffee grounds.

Be careful ... the top needle is sharp, and it is hard to spot the tiny slots in it.

Using a paperclip, I was able to push up and clear some grounds that were blacking water from flowing freely. These grounds then came out with my next cycle of water.

To see the upper needle, look up into the top of the machine after you open it. There are also two screws you can take out to see the top tube of water flow down to the coffee cup. That is where I was able to spot some grounds that came lose after I used a paperclip to clear.

I was ready to trash my machine ... now it is good as new. Good luck!

What is the difference between a water tank with & without a magnetic float on a saeco Vienna Superautomatica?

The magnet tells the machine that the water is low so you don't run the pump dry and cause it to fail. Some Vienna Supers had them and some didn't.

Not heating up still cold

I had the same problem after only a few months. There is a float at the side of the water resivour, this float also has a magnet attached to it and for some reason becomes lodged at the bottom of the tank, telling the machine that there is not enough water in the tank, even when there is. Use a magnet on the outside of the resviour, connect it to the one on the inside and lift very slowly upwards...Hey presto the light stops flashing and the water boils
