Machine is not drawing water in from reservoir and keeps telling to prime

Our Keurig 2.0 did that at the very beginning. After a call to customer service I learned warm water might help. I filed the reservoir about half way full and then heated water in my kettle and began adding it to the reservoir until the message went away. The temperature of the water was 113 degrees. Hope it works for you.

What can cause a vacuum on cooling water system

when the cooling heats up the excess expanded water is pushed past the radiator cap out into the overflow reservoir. When it cools down there is a vacuum created which draws back the coolant from the reservoir past a valve in the radiator cap. If you have a vacuum forming in the cooling system then the radiator cap is faulty/incorrect or there is a blockage in the line from the reservoir.

Water is (dirty) things are floating in the water. white "fakes" big and small

This could be from sediment that forms on the inside of the tubing from the filter through the reservoir in the refrigerator and to the water dispenser. I had this happen a while back. I had to replace the tubing and water reservior. It solved the problem.

My keurig b70 coffee maker says prime. sounds like the pump works for awhile then stops. prime lights up on the screen and doesnt let me do anything else why

Mine would brew the first cup fine, then the pump would run but would not draw water from the reservoir. I turn it off, turn it back on it would draw water for one cup then would not draw water again. I unplugged it waited 30 seconds and plugged it back in, assuming that would reset the electronics. It worked fine following the PDPU (power down, power up) procedure. Simply turning it off will NOT reset the processor, you MUST unplug the unit. Remember to wait 30 seconds or so prior to plugging the unit back in.

My B70 just starts running water through and doesn't stop till it's drained the reservoir...Any clues?

I have taken the beast apart and watched it successfully cycle and fail to cycle.

Warning!!! (DO NOT TRY DIS-ASSEMBLY IT UNLESS YOU KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND RECOGNIZE THE COMPONENTS, You could electrocute yourself and suffer nasty permanent scaring... ouchie!)

I discovered the same as another person claimed a "check value" and/or air leak/lockup. The pump cycles, but can't get water so the machine shuts down to prevent over-heating. (The dreaded "Not Ready").


1. Turn off the machine and unplug until it is completely cooled, say 4 hours. (Allows for temperature equalization of the water chamber and the water supply)

2. Completely fill the water reservoir. (The extra water just helps the pump break the air lock).

3. Turn the machine on and wait for the pump to start drawing water.

4. Immediately knock 1-3 times on top of the water reservoir/machine (at the very top of the machine) about as hard as would knocking on a door. (Watch the water level, it should immediately start to drop)

The pitch of the pump should change when the water begins to be drawn into the heating chamber. (you can also hear the water flowing)

The problem is caused by air entering the water supply system. This air provides a "lock" on the system that the pump can't overcome. This can happen due to a number of issues but most issues should be this easy fix.

The machine refills itself 3 times. At Power-on, at beginning of the brew cycle and after the brew cycle.

Watch the machine and any time the pump cycles make sure it draws in water until it shuts down, if it doesn

Where is the radiator filler cap

There is no cap on the radiator. The radiator can only be filled or topped-off by filling the coolant reservior. To access the coolant reservior, remove the left side crank case cover and add a 50/50 blend of coolant and DISTILLED water (pre-mixed works well). Make absolutely certain that the coolant is compatible with an aluminum radiator. The wrong coolant, especially alcohol based, will destroy your radiator in short order.

Your best bet is to read the label for yourself.

Add your coolant mixture and then run the engine for a few minutes, then turn off the engine and allow the radiator to draw what it needs from the reservior.

God Bless and good luck

Will not draw water from the reservoir

Sounds like it is too scaled up to work now. Use and care guide recomend you do it every 3 months and if you dont it builds up to the point that it gets completely clogged and will not pull in water.

Keurig when drawing water in takes a long time then turns off, sounds like it is clogged in some way

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. Hope that helps! Best of luck...

Keurig will work only part time. Sometime will make one cup of coffee and then will not draw in the water for the second cup and shut itself off after 1 or 2 minutes. Has plenty of water in it just won't...

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...
