Question about Keurig Elite B40 Coffee Maker
Run the keurig with vinegar instead of water. Then run it 5 times with only water just to remove the vinegar taste. Do this once a month. Also there are pins that pokes holes on top and bottom of coffee kcups, find the pins and clean it by unclogging with paperclips or some thinner wire. Buy a K-cup holder from amazon.com. Its the black cone shaped holder.

Step 1: Make sure you have 48 ounces of white vinegar on hand. You will also need an empty sink and a ceramic mug (do not use a paper cup.)
Step 2: Empty the water in the Water Reservoir b. FILL AND CLEAN
Step 1: Pour the vinegar into the Water Reservoir and fill it to the top edge of the clear viewing area.
Step 2: Place a ceramic cup in the Drip Tray and run a brew cycle. DO NOT USE A K-CUP…just press the Large Cup Button. Pour the contents of the cup into the sink.
Step 3: Repeat the brew process until the Water Reservoir is empty, pouring the contents of the cup into the sink after each cycle. Remember to open and close the lid between each cycle.
Step 4: Now fill reservoir with fresh water and let the Brewer stand for 4 hours while still on.
Step 5: Rinse the Water Reservoir thoroughly and fill with fresh water. c. RINSE Step 1: Ensure the Water Reservoir is filled with fresh water.
Step 2: Place a ceramic cup on the Drip Tray and run a regular brew cycle. Pour the contents of the cup into the sink.
Step 3: Repeat the brew process until the Water Reservoir is empty. Step 4: You may need to perform additional brew cycles if you notice any residual taste.
Regular cleaning (de-scaling) will prolong the life of the appliance. Scale is harmless, but left unattended, it can hinder optimal Brewer performance. De-scaling your Brewer regularly helps maintain the heating element, water reservoir and other parts of the Brewer that come in contact with water. Better water quality and water heating means a better cup of coffee. We recommend de-scaling your Brewer at least every 6 months (every three months if you are using hard water). The descaling process involves using 48 ounces of undiluted white vinegar.
Regular cleaning of the Brewer’s external components is recommended for proper operation. We recommend cleaning with a soapy, damp non-abrasive cloth. The K-Cup holder and funnel, drip plate, drip tray and removable water reservoir (on the Elite B40, Special Edition B60, and Platinum B70) are dishwasher safe. NOTE: the removable lid of the water reservoir is NOT dishwasher safe. The brewer should be descaled every 3-6 months.

This didn't work for me, but I saw that it worked for someone on another forum, so here goes...
If you feel up to taking the bottom plate off your B50, take it off and look at the two connectors (blue & red wires) going to the green part in the center. The vibration of the B50 may have shaken them loose. Reseating the connectors may fix the problem.
Like I said, though, it didn't work for me. Still no love from the B50. It's just over 2 years old, though, so it's out of warranty. Maybe I'll see if I can weasel a B70 for Valentine's Day.

I've got a B50 as well, and none of these solutions are quite accurate. The problem is with the ball valve directly above the top needle. You first need to remove the handle by taking out the screw on either side. Mine is some size of torks. Then open the hood and remove the two screws from under it. The hood then lifts right off the body. There is a rubber hose that goes into the top part of the ball valve; this must be removed. You can then use a slightly bent paper clip to reach in carefully and push the ball down to unstick it. It is being pushed up by a spring from underneath, so coming from the bottom with a paper clip just pushed it up tighter in the seat. Once it is clear again, put the hood and handle back on.
I think Keurig should send free replacement valves, maybe better designed as well so they don't stick anymore. If not, I am going to see if I can purchase a replacement.

After the pump fills the keurig and a sensor detects the proper fill level, a valve closes and a 12Volt air pump turns on and pushed the water out of the internal resevoir to the head of the unit.
My B70 air pump siezed up.. (actually formed rust in the friction bearing). I had to take the back off and the pump is located behind the water resevoir. had to remove the pump and test it with a 12Volt power supply.. it didnt spin... so I disassembled the air pump and found the shaft stuck with rust .
Used "Kroil" or you can also use WD-40 on the shaft to free it up... re assemble the pump and re-solder the wires back tp the pump...
worked for me.
