That should not happen. Return for a replacement. The heating resovour may have factory material in side the unit.

SOURCE: Removing the Top & Rear cover of my Keurig Platinum B70 Coffee Maker

well I had the same problem, it said NOT READY and would not draw water or heat it. I tried all the typical fixes for this problem. descaling with vinegar, taking out the waer basin and replacing it until it resealed itself, clearing the valves, turning on/off, unplugging, pressing menu rapidly after turing on, etc, etc, etc. I decide against taking it apart as I heard that it's a big pain in the bum. So I JUST BEAT THE LIVING **** OUT OF IT WITH MY FIST until volia it WORKED! ofcourse it died again a few days later. I've had it for two years and the warranty was up. costumer service was no help. So, the next day I went out and bought a new one of the same model, I switched this with the broken one and brought it back to the store saying it did not work. Let them return it to keurig and deal with those SOB's. hahaha hows that for a fix!

SOURCE: Strong plastic smell and taste on a new Keurig Platnum coffee mak

I had the same problem and I discovered that after running 3 resevoirs full of water through the machine at 192 degrees , it got rid of the plastic smell. Set the cup size at the largest size mug and then just open the lid and close it , hit brew and let it fill the cup. Dump the water in the sink and repeat until you go through at least 3 resevoirs. The smell should be gone by then.

I donated a new Platinum B70 Brewer for use by our church staff. The tap water tastes terrible and ruins the coffee flavor!


and bench top or under bench water filter in the water supply line to the unit will work
best filters to consider are one ceramic ( removes particles to a measurement of less than 1/2 micron and one carbon filter that removes all taste problems

MY KEURIG B70 IS CONTINUALLY PROMPTING TO "PRIME"


Hi, Lauren..
You can download another manual here.

Cleaning any coffee brewer is essentially the same. The easiest way is to brew one or more pots of white vinegar... it'll stink up your kitchen, but it's effective at removing build-ups and mineral deposits. Be sure to follow up these "vinegar brews" with several "plain water brews" to remove all the vinegar!

Also, if your water reservoir isn't clean (open the lid & do a finger swipe), you can use a brush to clean it or - what I do - wad up a paper towel or two, attach it to the end of a long-handled wooden spoon, and use that to get down deep into the reservoir & scrub it as much as you can before the vinegar treatment.

Alternatively, you can spend $3 or $4 for packaged cleaning compounds at stores like Williams & Sonoma.

Good luck!

Coffee maker never makes proper size, almost always have to run it 2-3 times to get even a small mug. Intermittently shuts off completely, have to turn it on in back. (B70)


Sorry to read about your issue.

The brewer should be de-scaled at least every 3-6 months. Scale is harmless, but if left unattended, it can hinder optimal brewer performance. De-scaling your brewer regularly helps maintain the heating element, removable 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, tea, hot cocoa or iced beverage. We recommend de-scaling your brewer at least every 6 months (every 3 months if your water has a high mineral content). The de-scaling process involves using 48 ounces of undiluted white vinegar.

Take 48 oz of white vinegar. place in tank. pretend you are making coffee (Do No Use K Cup). let the water fill you mug. then empty that mug. Do it again until tank is empty. then let sit for 4 hours.
Then fill with fresh water to the top. let that tank of water run thru. towards the end taste the water.
If you taste vinegar..use more clean water, until the taste is ok.
