Question about Keurig Mini B31 Plus Red Coffee Maker
Out brand new keurig mini plus has stopped heating and dispensing any water. We have only used it 6 times, and now it wont do anything. It just sits there flashing the red light like its heating the water, then it just shuts off after a few minutes, the water is still cold when i pour it out.

I had the same problem with my Mini ! I also had this problem with my last Mini which was given to me and I tossed out. So I replaced with the new one which just went on the fritz. Called Keurig who were very helpful and told me to descale, but I explained the machine is almost new. So I prodded them for what else could cause the problem and its water that is too cold.
Turns out the problem is that I was using very cold water and the machine can sense the water is cold and will not heat. It does not heat so it wont damage the heating element. I was using 40 degree water from the fridge.
My symptoms were: I would fill it, that the blue light would flash, I would push the button, then the red light would flash and then nothing it would shut off after a while. Now with not so freezing water it works fine!
Hope this helps as I threw out a good machine because the water was too cold!

1. Power off machine. 2. Using a metal paperclip, insert it into left side of top needle. It must insert at least 1" deep. Insert it into slot on right side and again from back of needle. 3. Remove KCup cradle. Separate bottom from top. In the top section, insert the paperclip up into bottom needle from the bottom upwards. It will not go all the way thru and this is normal. 4. Reassemble KCup cradle and reinsert it back into coffee maker.

Try brewing a cup without a K-cup in it on the largest cup button (will brew just hot water). This will help clean it out in the event it is clogged. If that doesn't work, completely remove the K-cup holder where the needles are (careful not to get **** ) by pushing up from the bottom and rinse using hot water, preferably with a sink sprayer if you have one. Sometimes the needle can get clogged, especially if you ever use the hot cocoa K-cups, so the manufacturer recommends brewing a "blank" cup of just hot water after each hot cocoa K-cup brewed. Hope that helps...Best of luck!

SOURCE: I have a brand new
After heating it switches off.This is because once the water get heated up ,It activates a cut off switch which stops the heater.This is a safety feature.
Can you be specific.? shuts off in the sense.?After that you can not use at all or can use.?
