I have the same problem with my unit and Cuisinart Warranty is replacing my unit. Please see my post on this issue and perhaps calling them will net you a new machine or a fix to your problem. You will need the Serial number to your unit.

No guarantees by me of this, my machine is under warranty and I have no real information regarding yours.

Water leaking from system

take the reservoir out and set it on the counter - see if the leak is from the reservoir itself. If the leak is internal you will have to have a service tech come out. What CVA do you have?

Prepare the pot the night before and by morning all the water in the reservoir is on the floor or the counter!

I have had our Bur Grinder Cuisinart for a little under a yr. with no issues until recently when it started flooding my counter top. I could tell it had something to do with the lid or filter button that touched the lid b/c coffee would begin to "pool" and then flood over the sides onto my counter. I contacted the number listed below on 10.25.12 and was told our model's lid had a defect and they would send me a new one to resolve the issue.

Water leaking from reservoir

I had the same problem. All of a sudden my kitchen top counter got filled with water. The water was leaking from the Nespresso C190 water resevoir at the bottom. Exactly where the reservoir meets the coffee machine base. I had by chance an "O" rubber ring left from a faucet which I inserted at the base of the water rervoir right on the small **** which when it sits on the C190 base lets a valve open in order the water to flow through. The "O" ring was 2 to 3 mm in diameter and about 1 mm thick, You might experiment with different ones until you solve your problem.

Below are solutions for a leaking coffee maker and how to decalcify the machine?
Tools and Materials needed to fix this problem are as:
* White Vinegar * Fresh Water * Volt-ohm Meter * Screwdriver
Step 1 - Clean
If your coffee maker seems to be clogged, try cleaning it with a mixture of white vinegar and water. Assuming that your coffee maker has a 12 cup capacity you will want to use 11 cups of vinegar and 1 cup of water. Fill the coffee pot to the 11 cup mark with vinegar and then fill it to the 12 cup mark with water.
Pour this mixture into the reservoir and turn on the coffee maker, allowing it to run through a brewing cycle as if you were making a pot of coffee. By doing this you will dissolve any build up in your coffee maker. If the coffee maker is leaking because the pump is clogged, then this might clear the clog and stop the leaking. If it has been a while since you last cleaned your coffee maker, you may need to run the vinegar through more than one cleaning cycle to dissolve all of the buildup.
Step 2 - Pump Valve
Unplug the coffee maker and examine the pump valve. If the pump valve is broken or has a clog, then the water will not be able to rise up and flow through the fill tube. When the coffee maker is turned on, the water needs to go someplace. If it cannot flow through the fill tube, then it may leak onto the countertop. If the pump in your coffee maker is sealed, you will need to replace the whole pump. If the pump is not sealed you should check it to ensure it is not clogged with coffee grounds or mineral deposits.
Step 3 - Brew Switch
Examine the brewing switch to ensure that is working. To get to the brewing switch, remove the base plate. Next, you will need to test the switch with your volt-ohm meter. Touch the tester to the RX1 scale. If it reads 0 ohms then you will know that the switch works fine. If it gives you a number other than 0 then it is time to replace the switch.
Step 4 - Tube Connectors
If the coffee maker is leaking or sputtering then you should take a look at the tube connectors. Many times, a leaky coffee maker is caused by faulty tube connectors. If you find the leak is in an elbow, clean the surfaces before you replace it. If the tube connector leaks, replace both the tube and the elbow so that you can be sure the pieces will both fit together properly.
To decalcify, you will be needing a : decalcifying cleaner and A container large enough to hold the same quantity of liquid as your water reservoir
1) Remove the machine's water reservoir. 2) Empty all liquid from the reservoir. 3) Fill the reservoir with warm water. 4) Add one packet of the recommended cleaner to the full reservoir and stir until the cleaner is dissolved. 5) Return the water reservoir to the machine. 6) Turn the machine on. 7) Set the large container underneath the steam wand. 8) Set up your machine so that hot water -NOT steam-will be emitted from the steam wand when the steam valve is opened. 9) Open the steam valve according to the manufacturer's instructions. 10) After all of the decalcifying solution has drained into the large container (within a few minutes this will occur), remove it and discard the liquid that has been collected. 11) Rinse the water reservoir thoroughly and then fill it with the type of water you usually use for brewing. 12) Return the water reservoir to its normal position. 13) Using only water repeat steps 7 through 9 until the water reservoir is empty again.
I hope the above helps....
Good luck.

My Keurig Platinum B70 is leaking. When I put the water reservoir on to the coffee maker, water seeps out the bottom where the reservoir sits into...almost like the little valve in the reservoir stays...

My Keurig B60 had the same issue. The water reservoir has a valve in a nipple on the bottom that slides into a clear plastic fitting within the base of the unit. Water from the reservoir is supposed to pass through the fitting and into the pump, which is also in the base. Over time, hard water deposits can build up on the nipple or the mating fitting (or both) such that a good seal is not made when the reservoir is in place and water slowly leaks out the bottom. To fix this, I removed the five screws on the bottom of the Keurig and then removed the two screws which hold the fitting in place. I gently cleaned both the clear plastic fitting and the nipple in the bottom of the reservoir with white vinegar. After rinsing both with clean water and drying both, I applied a small amount of silicon faucet grease (available at any hardware store) to both parts. I haven't had any more leaks since, although I assume I will have to repeat this operation periodically.

My Keurig B60 sometimes shuts off after one cup. I've only had it for six weeks. Sometimes it shuts off before it's used. We only use our coffee maker in the morning. After my husband & I have had 2...

The water reservoir tank probably isn't seated properly. Try wiggling the tank a bit and if that doesn't do the trick, completely remove the water reservoir and then replace it. Once it's seated properly, it should start drawing water and brew as designed. This seems to be a design flaw with this particular model, so periodic adjusting of the water reservoir may be necessary to ensure it is seated properly if your problem persists. Hope that helps! Best of luck...
