I have 3 commercial B3000 that needs cups. I am willing to buy 6 if I can find them. Looking for a solid source for parts and troubleshooting commercial brewers. Great machines. Poor Repair Center or Support for Keurig commercial equipment. Why do these cups keep breaking? How can I prevent the cups from just coming off the hinges? Please let me know!

It may need de-scaling. When my Keurig did what yours is doing, I filled the reservoir 3/4 way with white vinegar, and ran the machine repeatedly until it all passed through. I then re-used that vinegar and did the whole pass through 3 more times. that cleared it up. Did that 9 months ago. Use: 6 cups/day.
One other source of this problem are the metal pieces that punctures the top and bottom of the K-cup. Coffee grinds can find their way in there, and can be cleaned out with a paper clip or mini-pipe cleaner. But clogging of the bottom puncturer usually results in overflow, unless the top is also blocked.
If you are talking about the K-cup holder that punches the bottom of the k-cups, they usually are not for sale, and you can only find them on ersale sites like Ebay.etc...
you could also go buy a "Keurig My K-Cup Reusable Coffee Filter"
and just use the main grey plastic filter holder... but you will have to puncture the bottom of the k-cups yourself before dropping them into the holder...
You wont need the filter basket or the lid if your using k-cups... just the filter holder...
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.
