B60 special edition clear water surge last couple ounces

Got the B60 Special. Ed. 1 month ago. Made good coffee (extra bold)
till now except could be hotter. But all of a sudden it now produces a clear water surge for the last 1-2 ounces. The coffee is so weak
it is not drinkable. I measured the med size with no k-cup and
it is 8oz. I am wondering if the water pump or whatever
monitors the water pressure could be failing.

    Turns out the problem is intermittent. Switching between K-cups and the reusable filter basket (for Starbucks) seems to get the machine confused if that is possible. We no longer have the surge of water, but now with the reusable it sometimes has very little pressure and water trickles out and makes a partial cup. But now the the pre-filled K-cups seem to be working again.

    So we found Tully's Bold Italian roast tastes similar to the Starbucks so we are not using the reuasable any more and the machine is working ok as of today. Go figure.

Have you tried Descaling? In the manual, it recommends Descaling every 2-3 months, even though you mentioned that you've had yours only 1 month. Worth a try, anyway.

I know they carry a water filter thru Keurig.com for less than $18 that you install right on the water pump in the water reservoir if you live in an area where the mineral deposits are heavy. It lasts 2 months and you can buy 6 replacement cartridges for $25. I just put one in mine today and it took less than 6 minutes to install (5 of those minutes were spent just soaking it in clean water).

If that doesn't help, you can call their Support Team @ #1-866-901-2739 between 7AM-12 Midnight EST. Make sure you have the serial # of your machine before calling. It's located either behind the drip tray (just pull it out) or on the bottom of the unit.

Blue light is flashing where the water goes and it says prime. it won't brew. what do i do?


Remove the water reservoir, then reinstall it to it's normal position. Refill or top off with the recommended bottled or filtered water to the max fill line.This will clear the prime message. If after you do the the above procedure at least two times, the prime message keeps coming back your machine has brewed its last coffee. If you bought it from Costco, I would recommend returning it there. Or If still within the 12 month warranty period, call Keurig.1-866-901-2739. Tell them and they will ship you a replacement.

Keurig special edition b60 prime problem?


You may want to try this.

Simply trying to clear the lines often will work. And as you will see from the many comments below, by far the most reliable way to get your Keurig brewer working again is the "Slap and Burp" method.

Here is how you do it.

First, unplug the brewer and remove both the water reservoir and drip tray.

Next, hold the brewer upside down over the sink and slap the base a few times. And I mean really slap it.

Now put everything back together and try brewing again. Most of the time this works with a couple of good slaps. If not, try it again.

And don't worry, there are no laws against giving your Keurig a good slapping!

Good luck!

When my machine makes a cup of coffee it continues to drip water after the brew process - when you remove the K-Cup it dumps about an ounce of water.


There's a needle that punches a hole on the bottom of the K-cup. That needle is clogged. Poke it with a paper clip or a thinner wire to unclog it.

The keurig spits water into the water resevore and does not make a cup without first turning off the machine and turning it back on several times

Hello,

I assume your coffe maker used to produce more coffee for each use. Roughly 6 ounces per large cup, and now is only making 3 oz. cups.

If your coffee maker is sputtering and not able to "suck" enough water to fill your cups of coffee it is most likely due to cavitation caused in the little pump due to a stoppage, which is most likely lime or scale buildup somewhere in the pump line.

To fix it, don't take your coffee maker apart. Get a bottle of distilled white vinegar, and pour it straight into the empty water resevoir. Press brew with no coffee pod so you are just running the vinegar through the system. Pour the vinegar out of the cup and back into the resevoir. Add some ice to cool it off. Repeat about 10 times. This should clear out the toughest lime scale clog.

After you notice the cups are filling full of water, Replace the vinegar with fresh water. Run about 5 or 6 cups of fresh water through the system to get rid of the vinegar.

Make coffee/tea/whatever.
