Question about Keurig Elite B40 Coffee Maker

1 Answer

I am on my second Keurig. The first one quit working after a week. The second one only brewed one cup, then quit. It heats, the lights flash, but when I push the button, it sounds like it is going to brew and then clicks, and nothing happens. The light stays on, but that's it. They were both brand new, purchased at Kohl's.

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.

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.

I have a keurig b30 and has been working great but now it will not recognize any of my cups so the flashing blue light will not come on to start brewing? none of them are clear and have all worked in the...


I haven't solved the problem, but I continue to disassemble my K30. Most likely points of failure for the blue start light not coming on appear to be a sensor to detect the cup is in place (two small holes on the left/right front edge of the cup holder) or a sensor in the resovoir lid where the blue pin presses on a pressure switch. I did find that the red wire to this switch gets caught in the lid hinge and may be damaged. I will post more if I finally discover the root cause but may just go to Bed Bath & Beyond and buy the resovoir model with a 2 year warranty. Lesson learned. Cheap switches and mechanical devices.

I have the Keuirg mini plus and i just opened it. It flashes red like it is heating and then just turns off. No brewing.


Same here. (I have the Mini Plus B31) Called Keurig and these are the steps they walked me through. Not sure which part actually fixed the problem, but it worked.

1. Turn off machine. Using a paperclip clean out the holes in the needles (3 in the top, one in the bottom of the k-cup holder).

2. If water is inside the heating core (assuming it is as nothing happened when you tried to brew), with the machine turned off, press and hold the brew button. After 5 seconds the pump will kick on and discharge the water. Make sure you have a cup in place to catch the water.

3. Dispose of that water.

4. Unplug the machine.

5. Wait 5 seconds.

6. Plug machine back in.

7. Turn on.

8. Run empty cycle without a k-cup and only use the minimum amount of water (6 oz).

9. Dispose of that water after it brews (hopefully).
If still nothing is happening, call Keurig.

10. Brew your coffee, tea, choco, etc.

Note: was told by Keurig rep that whenever you use hot chocolate, to run an empty rinse cycle afterwards before brewing another cup. This will help prevent any choco from going up inside the machine and possibily blocking the water flow.

Hope it works! Mine did after following these instructions. The rep also wanted me to measure the amount of water that came out afterwards. Not sure what the next step would be because my call got dropped, but the machine works. Sipping on a cup now...

Keurig elite b40 cup lights don't flash. Both are illuminated solid.


Lift the handle to open the k-cup holder and then close it back up. The coffee mug lights should begin to blink for you.
