I just got mine to work by forcing water into the pump to force it to prime. I took a syringe for a meat injector and built a gasket so it would seal over the water intake. Then I forced several syringes of water into the pump till it finally picked up and caught its prime.

    I didn't have a turkey baster on hand, but if you pour white vinegar into the reservoir, open your Keurig like you normally would to get the liquid into the system and out of the reservior. Just let it sit there for a while. The vinegar will work it's way through. It's a slow process, but slowly it starts to get into the keurig and your keurig will evenutally start allowing the liquid to flow through. You have to keep letting it drip through, then brew. fill more vinegar, let it trickle through, then brew. It might take all day, but the vinegar breaks down the scales.

    Mine did the same thing. I tried removing the filter and running vinegar to no avail. Once I gave up and unplugged the machine, and after driving down to the closest McDonald's for some much needed coffee, I got online and started reading some of these fixes. Seemed unplugging is important because I plugged it back in and voila! it worked!

The display always reads Not Ready. I have to turn the machine off for at least 10 sec now every time I make a new cup of coffee. It also sounds odd when it's drawing the water in to the heating...


There is air in the lines and it is blocking the water flow...

Won't draw water from the resevoir.

It's a known problem with keurigs pump. Call Keurig, they will have you send back the original cup from your machine in a padded envelope and they will send you a new machine and direct you to throw the old one out.

Our Keurig only dispenses a partial cup of coffee. We descaled as recommended and did the paperclip cleaning of the need,es and no improvement. When we press brew, it draws an appropriate amount of water...

Keurig coffee maker dispenses only part of a cup (about 5 ounces) after brewng one cup. Running a second clear cup (w/o K-cup) shows coffee grounds in cup of clear water. the maker will then brew a full cup of coffee. It appears that the top pin is too long and goes into the coffee after it punches through the top of the K-cup. Some of the gorunds appear to get stuck in the top pin.
