Question about Keurig B60 Coffee Maker

Keurig new with burnt plastic smell

I have a Keurig B66 Ultimate. This is the 2nd one in 2 days. They both had a strong plastic smell and taste, after the coffee pot was on for a while. The first 2 or 3 cups were great, but after that, they smell. The housing where the cup goes in the unit has the same smell! Any thoughts or help

We had the same problem with the Keurig 2.0. We ran many cups of vinegar followed by water and it didn't fix the problem at all. The only fix was calling Keurig and they replaced the unit. We had a real nice 460. They replaced the unit with an inferior 350. Smaller reservoir, B&W screen and some missing menu options and different color trim. However, it works.

Your heating unit may be going bad. You could contact Keurig and see what they will do for you. I found them to be very helpful when I had a problem with mine. The replaced the entire unit for me and had me discard my old one.

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.

SOURCE: my keurig model b66 coffee maker is not dispensing

Run the descaling operation as described in the manual. If this doesn't do the trick, get a can of compressed air with a nozzle on it and blow the air into the upper nozzle, the one that pierces the cup on top. This works when the descaling isn't the problem.

SOURCE: Coffee grounds in cup w/ Keurig 60

I have the answer because it is happening to me now. Moreso with the Timmothy's brand K cups. I did a little forensics on a good brew, and then on two slow with grounds in the final brewed coffee.
The inner filter is placed in the k cup and it is not glued to the top rim. The bag then just sits on the bottom of the k cup as it is passed with the hot pressurized water.
The good cups are glued to the top rim and there is no problem.
To investigate....remove the foil top carefully after the cup cools. Rinse out the grounds, and the filter bag should still be glued to the rim. if you've got a dribbler and one that passes the grounds into the cup...you will find the filter bag had fallen loose from the rim. Manufacturer defect...You bet!!!
I had 8 from a box of Timmothys 25 count pass grounds. Green mountain coffee may once in a while pass grounds, but very rare and maybe three times in the 4,000 k-cups we've used.

Keurig bad taste


I had that bad Keurig taste/smell for the first few months I owned it and almost returned it, but then someone suggested I run vinegar (1/3) and water (2/3) through it as though it was time to clean it and flush with just water for 3 cycles (see instructions)... and it worked!!!

This is my second day with my machine, and after I brewed some tea.... it smelt and taste like plastic. Also after brewing when u pick up the machine it sounds like there's still water in it? What do I do?


Run several cups of just plan water through your B-40, The plastic taste and smell should disappear, And, there will always be about 8 oz. of water that will remain in your B-40 at all times, after first use !!!

Strong plastic smell and taste on a new Keurig Platnum coffee mak


I had the same problem and I discovered that after running 3 resevoirs full of water through the machine at 192 degrees , it got rid of the plastic smell. Set the cup size at the largest size mug and then just open the lid and close it , hit brew and let it fill the cup. Dump the water in the sink and repeat until you go through at least 3 resevoirs. The smell should be gone by then.
