Question about Keurig Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines

Keurig won't brew coffee

This machine is only 2 months old so it's not a descaling problem. I added water to the reservoir and turned the machine on. After the water heated up, I put in a K-cup and pressed the button for the brew amount. It sounded like it was about to start brewing and then it started making a humming sound. No Coffee. Help

Take it back for an exchange. Not sure what model you have, but Keurig has a class action law suit going on because of the many problems they are having with their coffee makers. Again, take it back for an exchange (what I did).

SOURCE: GE 169164 Coffee Pot Not Brewing

Loosen the charcoal filter. You only need to GENTLY place it in. Your problems will all be solved. I just did it 5 minutes ago and i just brewed a 6 cup pot of coffee completely.

SOURCE: Keurig starts & stops without brewing coffee, just descaled

The pic is clogged with coffee or the air bladder is bad. Use the tool on the underside of the tray to clean out pic. If that doesn't work, the bladder will be bad.

SOURCE: My Keurig B60 is Suddenly Brewing WEAK Coffee

I don't have a solution but have just experienced the same problem and am baffled. I am using the same beans same grind. In fact using the exact same grind it went from great one day to weak the next day.  I always run it for 15 - 16 secs to get the shot and that hasn't changed. Pressure and temperature appear fine. I cleaned the top of the top filter which was a little dirty but not seriously bad - no change. The coffee flow which is normally chocolate coloured to start with is just mid brown.

How do I descale my Keurig 20 coffee machine


Start the brew cycle without inserting a K-cup. Repeat until reservoir is empty, discarding the mug contents after each brewing cycle. This process will help remove lime and scale buildup. Keurig recommends descaling your brewer at least every 3-6 months depending on your water source.26 Apr 2015

Keurig won't brew, only 2 months old, not a descaling problem


If it's only 2 months old you should contact Keurig directly. They have awesome customer service and will probably replace your unit. I have read numerous postings that they will do it even if you did not register your machine.

The descale light keeps blinking, what should I do?


The 'Descale' light that turns on indicates that it is time to de-scale the machine.
Scale - or mineral deposits- form from the water you run through your Keurig coffee machine. If not cleaned regularly, the buildup can clog the lines in your machine and ruin the heating element. The manufacturer recommends you descale Keurig coffee makers once every six months for normal water conditions and once every three months if you live in an area with hard water.
You will need :
  • Keurig coffee maker
  • 48 oz. white distilled vinegar
  • Water
  • Large ceramic cup
  • Sink


Instructions :
  • 1 Unplug the coffee machine and remove the cup.
  • 2 Turn the coffee machine upside down over the sink in order to fully drain it of water. Be careful of the plug and avoid getting it wet.
  • 3 Pour undiluted white vinegar into the reservoir up to the top edge of the viewing window.
  • 4 Place a ceramic cup under the machine, plug it in and press "Brew" for a large cup. Pour the cups of vinegar into the sink and repeat the process until the reservoir is empty.
  • 5 Remove the final cup of vinegar and empty it. Fill the coffee maker with clean water and allow it to sit for four hours, remaining on.
  • Good luck ;)

    I have had my Kuerig coffee maker for over a year now which I believe means it's no longer under warranty. However, I paid quite a lot for it so I'd really like to see if I can have it repaired...


    unfortunatly keurig treats any home model as throwaway once warrenty is up. They even do the same with mostcommercial models. By the sounds of your problems its time for a new one. sorry. try for a b145 or b150 they are a little more robust.

    My 9 month old machine only spits out water for a second


    I called Keurig and they felt that it was likely a blockage at the needles, but despite cleaning them repeatedly, there was no improvement. They are sending me a replacement.

    Descaling light on


    Per Pages 9 and 10 of Keurig Model B40 Use and Care Guide,
    1) turn off the "Auto Off "feature
    2) fill empty water reservoir with 48 ozs of undiluted white vinegar.
    3. Place ceramic cup on the drip tray and run a brew cycle. Do not use a K-cup!
    4. Press the large mug Button
    - let Keurig coffee maker fill mug with vinegar & empty in sink.
    5. Repeat brew process until water reservoir of vinegar is empty. (remember to open and close lid between each cycle so large mug Button will flash.
    6. Rinse the water reservoir thoroughly and fill with fresh water.
    7. FINAL STEP RINSE CYCLE
    a) place a ceramic cup on the drip tray
    b) run regular brew cycles WITHOUT using a K-cup.
    c) pour rinse water into sink each time.
    d) repeat brew process until water reservoir is empty.
    d) perform additional rinse cycles if you notice any residual vinegar taste.
    e) if the red "De-scale" light remains illuminated after completing descale and rinse cycles, repeat the descaling procedure above.
    Otherwise - you're good to go!
