Question about Keurig B60 Coffee Maker

2 Answers

Kreig coffee maker is very noisy when pumping water

We have had our Keurig for 18 months, and this problem just recently started. When I push the "ready to brew" button, a loud vibrating noise starts. If I remove the chrome plate on which you rest the cup, the noise goes away, but then the mug doesn't fit correctly in the black plastic basin. It still works but is very annoying.

    My Keurig does the same thing. It vibrates so loud that the cups need to be held or they will fall off the basin. I hate using it because the entire kitchen sounds like its taking off for outer space.

    I have the same problem, although with mine it started pretty early on; I was just too lazy to do anything about it.

    I just called Keurig to ask them about it, and their answer was unfortunately the earlier models had noisy pumps, but they have since redesigned the brewers.

    In the mean time, they suggested descaling the brewer, as that can have an effect on the noise if it has not been done in a while. I imagine it was just to get me off the phone, but I am willing to give it a try.

If you slide out the drip catcher tray and just remove it, the brewer works just fine. Granted, your mug is sitting a little further away from the spout, but it does take care of the metallic rattle.

Our Keurig is in Australia using a transformer for voltage. Brand new and keeps telling us to prime ????

Hi. Open the steam/hot water outlet while it is heating. This allows the air to come out, and water to fill the water circuit. The pump will be noisy at first, but will quiten when water has filled it. Good luck and enjoy your coffee. Dazza. Repairer 0401 200 901. Queensland

How do I prime my machine?

Hi again, When the machine is turned on, open the steam tap until approx 100mls of water comes out. The pump will sound really noisy, until the water starts to come through. Then the pump should not sound as loud. Dazza REPAIRER

My kreig brewer Model B40 give me only hot water

The seal is too thin. Install a faucet washer on the top needle above the factory seal. Remove the factory seal (slides off the needle). Install the faucet washer and replace the factory seal. My machine leaked all over until I did this. Works Great!

Pump is running but no water is being drawn from the reservoir

I haven't had this happen where nothing is being dispensed, but if you have small portions being dispensed or the pump is noisy, I tried 2 things that work for me:
1) remove the reservoir and over your kitchen sink, with water still inside the reservoir, use your pinky finger, small chopstick, etc, and gently push the inlet valve a few times from underneath to let water out. After about 2-3 months, our unit seems to stick (rubber seal that closes),
2) put some vinegar into the reservoir with some water and run the unit about 3-4 times on largest cup setting. Clean out the reservoir, replenish with fresh water and run the unit another 6 times. Believe me, you need to flush the vinegar out well, otherwise any residue in your coffee will not only taste bad, it will curdle your milk/cream. I've had my B70 Platinum for 15 months making about 8 cups everyday, Hope this helps..:D
