Question about Keurig B50 Coffee Maker

1 Answer

Menu cycles through the options non-stop

When the unit is turned on, it behaves normally until it gets to the point where it is ready to brew. At this point (After the Kcup has been loaded) the menu begins to cycle through all the options (clock, auto start, etc.) and finally back to the "ready to brew" screen. But only for a quick flash, then through the menu options again.

If I time it just right, i can get it to brew by pressing the cup button when it gets to the main screen, but it really is a pain.

It doesn't appear that a button is stuck, but I think it is behaving as if the menu button is always being pushed.

Any ideas?

Have you tried unplugging the unit? Sometimes the machine will get caught in a repetitive "cycle" and needs to be re-set. If this does't work, let me know

Hi Its hard to say with what you have said, but if the brew unit was cycling slowly, it may be the board. Close the door and make sure that everything is in but the brew unit. Turn the machine on and see if it cycles the gear in back to the starting point. It may take a few minutes to cycle if its the board. If it returns its the board. I have some boards.

My keurig says I need to descale.How?


Descaling depends the size of the reservoir. I see the B60 but not the B66 at the Keurig site. The two units are apparently the same from searching the support side of the Keurig site: http://www.keurig.com .

For the Mini coffee makers, you use 20 oz of vinegar (2 10 oz cycles). For the larger Keurig units, it takes 48 oz of vinegar.

In either case, fill the reservoir with vinegar and put a large ceramic (12 oz mug for the mini unit) mug on the drip tray. Do not add a K-cup. For the B60 (and probably the B66), press the Brew button. Discard the vinegar after the cycle. Repeat the brew process until Add Water is indicated. Discard the vinegar each time. Then wait 4 hours with the unit on. Discard the remaining vinegar and rinse the reservoir. Fill the reservoir with 48 oz of water and brew several cups without a K-cup until the "Add water" message appears. Discard the water in the mug each time. Repeat the vinegar cleaning if De-scale still appears in the LCD. Run more water without the K-cup if you notice a remaining taste in the coffee after the rinse procedure.

For the mini, fill the reservoir with 10 oz of water, lift the Brewer handle and lower it after 5 seconds with no K-cup in the unit. Press the Brew button. Discard the vinegar after the cycle. After the first cycle, pour the other 10 oz of vinegar into the Cold Water Reservoir. Lift the handle and lower it after 5 seconds. Press the Brew button and wait until the light becomes steady. When vinegar starts to be dispensed, power off the unit. Wait 30 minutes. Then power on the unit and lift and lower the handle again. Then discard the vinegar after the cycle. Next run 4 rinse brew cycles with 10 oz of water each time. Discard the water each time. The unit should be ready to brew with a K-cup after the 4 rinse cycles.

I hope this helps.

Motor stuck in brew postion wont reset even with the brew group out


Hi
Leave the brew unit out but put everything else back in and then turn the machine on. the brew drive should reset to where it should be so you can put the brew unit back in, but make sure that the brew unit is ready to install.
You must make sure that the brew unit is ready to reinsert into the machine. To return the brew group to the centered position, you first need to drop the funnel. To do this, look on the opposite side of the brew group from the handle. At the top you will see an object that looks like a sharks fin. If you follow this piece down you will see 2 horizontal bars on the brew group body. Push your finger between these 2 bars and the funnel will drop. If you have you key you can insert it in the front of the brew unit. There is a round hold in the center below the "Push", and twist it clockwise until it stops and the 2 marks are lined up. If you don't have your key you can do this. Push the puck slide on the left side down and to the center. If you look down through the funnel you should see a piston. This should be centered in the funnel. If not, locate the slide on the left side of the brew unit, (it should be hanging down, a flat rectangular piece attached to the cylinder) and push the slide to the right until it does. Press the "Push" lever until you hear a click and you are now ready to reinsert the brew group in to the machine.

Screen says brewunit blocked. Brewunit seems clear but stops in wrong position, ie not 'home' any ideas? Thanks


Hi If you remove the brew unit and put everything back with out it the brew unit. Turn th machine on and see if it will cycle? Open the door and look in the back where the brew unit was. There is a cog in the back with teeth. There are 2 large teeth, and they should be at the 10 and 12:00 position roughly. If they are anywhere else you have a broken drive and need to get the gears replaced. If they are in the correct position check the front of the brew unit where the circles are. There are 2 diamonds and they should be pointing at each other. if they are not you need to bring them together with the key tool. Insert it into the center of the circles and turn until they line up, then put back into the machine, and see if it will work. If it still doesn't you have a bad board.

Cannot get the brew unit back in after cleaning

If you have you key you can insert it in the front of the brew unit. There is a round hold in the center below the “Push”, and twist it clockwise until it stops and the 2 marks are lined up. If you don’t have your key you can do this. Push the puck slide on the left side down and to the center. If you look down through the funnel you should see a piston. This should be centered in the funnel.

Press the “Push” lever until you hear a click and you are now ready to reinsert the brew group in to the machine. First you must close the door with the drip tray and dredge drawer inserted, and turn on the machine without having the brew group in. You will hear the motor turn on and when it stops completely, open the door and remove the tray, and dredge drawer, now insert the brew group, and replace the tray. If it still won’t go in check the cog in the back of the machine. There are 2 wide teeth that should be at the 10:00 and 12:00 position. If they are at a different position you have a broken drive gear.

My brew group is jammed. I need to remove the screw that holds the small coupling water inlet to the brew group. The problem is that I cannot seem to find that screw in my Incanto Classic machine.


Hi
Its on the left inside of the brew unit. There is a hole on the left side of the brw unit. That hole is to access the screw in the normal position but now it has mover. You will have to go in from the side. Its a #1 Phillips screw. You will need a 6" screw driver.
Here are the directions you will need.

The water starts flowing for about a minute then stops for a minute then starts for a minute and continues that cycle until it fills the air pot and stops. I have cleaned all the filters in line, checked...


This sounds like normal operation of this type of unit.

Look at the brew funnel. is coffee coming out of it all the time during the brew cycle?

If so, then what you are hearing is the water supply solenoid cycling.

Menu options do not display and nothing happens when you hi brew


Am I to assume it brews if you normal brew? It can be that normal brew is not controlled in the same way hi brew is, therefore when the control panel stops functioning and no screen display, the hi brew feature also stops working.
This casn only mean that either the circuit control is faulty and needs replacement. orthere is a bad connection that has finely shown or corroded to the point of not working completely. In either case, the unit needs to opened and tested & or visually insepected.
