Question about Keurig Elite B40 Coffee Maker

1 Answer

Coffee grounds in my Keurig B40

I have coffee grounds building up just outside the area where the pod goes in. I've poured water in to clean it out but it keeps recurring. How do I clean it without taking it all the way apart? Is there something I need to do so it doesn't happen again?

If you put water in the basket, does it empty rather quickly? If it does, have you tried putting in a paper filter to help with the spillage?

SOURCE: Coffee won't pass through pod

the K-cup is punctured at the top and at the bottom.
you can take a corkscrew, and puncture a number of holes in the bottom of the K-Cup... verify there is a hole at the top... just before you start to brew... press down on the black arm over the cup... but not too hard...Lets see what happens... if it all looks good... no problems... then we need to either adjust the arm... or shim the k-Cup up a little bit...
you may also check the rubber Seal around the top pin that punctures the K-cup...
sounds like you lost your rubber seal around the top of the K-cup...

you can re-phrase after looking and testing....

The descale light keeps blinking, what should I do?


The 'Descale' light that turns on indicates that it is time to de-scale the machine.
Scale - or mineral deposits- form from the water you run through your Keurig coffee machine. If not cleaned regularly, the buildup can clog the lines in your machine and ruin the heating element. The manufacturer recommends you descale Keurig coffee makers once every six months for normal water conditions and once every three months if you live in an area with hard water.
You will need :
  • Keurig coffee maker
  • 48 oz. white distilled vinegar
  • Water
  • Large ceramic cup
  • Sink


Instructions :
  • 1 Unplug the coffee machine and remove the cup.
  • 2 Turn the coffee machine upside down over the sink in order to fully drain it of water. Be careful of the plug and avoid getting it wet.
  • 3 Pour undiluted white vinegar into the reservoir up to the top edge of the viewing window.
  • 4 Place a ceramic cup under the machine, plug it in and press "Brew" for a large cup. Pour the cups of vinegar into the sink and repeat the process until the reservoir is empty.
  • 5 Remove the final cup of vinegar and empty it. Fill the coffee maker with clean water and allow it to sit for four hours, remaining on.
  • Good luck ;)

    My keurig is brewing only alittle coffee and the rest of the water is being poured back into the water basin, at a very hot temp.


    When is the last time it was cleaned? That's usually the issue & the quickest fix. If the Keurig gets lime/calcium build up on the internal components it will ignore whatever has been programmed into it & just keep cutting off or keep making partial cups. However, I've not heard of your particular problem with it running the heated water back into the basin. Try cleaning it & see if that reduces or eliminates your problem. Run some white vinegar thru it - fill the reservoir with a strong vinegar/water mix, remove any kcups/my kcup, also remove the carbon filter ( fyi - that's not going to eliminate any lime/calcium in your water - it's just to eliminate any bad tastes/odors) and "make" how ever many cups it takes to empty the reservoir. Depending on the build up - you may need to do this 2 or 3 times. Also run about 2 more reservoirs of just clear water to help rinse out the vinegar mix (otherwise your next cup of coffee will not be what you expected). If this eliminates your problem, it should be done every 2-3 mths.

    If that does not work - call Keurig's Customer Service # at 1-866-901-BREW (2739) Good Luck.

    All of a sudden my mom's Keuring B40 won't make a full cup of coffee.


    Mine started to do that about a month ago. I would have to brew multiple "cups" just to fill one coffee cup. I ran several cycles of the largest cup, without any K-cups, to clean out the small metal spout. After about 3 hot-water cycles, it worked fine. I do this periodically, as I don't use the Keurig daily, so some of the residue builds up between uses.
