Lift the reservoir, then reseat it. This will clear the prime message. If it repeatedly comes back then your machine is dead. If in the year warranty, call Keurig they will ship you a replacement. Very common problem.

SOURCE: MY KEURIG COFFEE MAKER WON'T WORK AND IT

I had the same problem, the machine is two monthsold, and found a way to fix it. This is my second unit as the first unit failed after 14 months. Removing the resovoir and using my finger to push up on the valve that allows the resevoir to drain into the base unit always worked for me for perhaps a day. I got tired of doing this and three days ago I glued an 18 ga copper circle the end of the valve to open the valve wider when the resovoir is seated in the base unit. While it has only been 3 days so far there has not been a prime problem. I also us K-cups and the unit leaked water every time. I removed the rubber grommet on the lid and place a folded piece of aluminum foil (8 layers) that i pierced to fit over the needle that punctures cup. I then pkaced the grommet back on the needle and have had no leakage since. Hope this helps you.

SOURCE: my platinum Keurig says to

Im a student in electronic and i would say to you some basic things:

1.Dont work long with that, that has resistors, is like a bulb, some day has to broke but
in your case, you might have little higher voltage in the input.

2.If you have a bussinness coffee , buy a good one, dont be attracted from tv spots.
3.To repair it itll cost you double, the electronic man that repair that
has to find the right electronic element. Has to see that live. or you could tell me what is burned
or exploded. if nothing of those two, you have to test the voltage output with multimetter
maybe your house voltage damage your coffee,
(in Europe 220v in USA 110v)
Do you have read the troubleshoot , that little book with your coffee maker?

SOURCE: My Keurig keeps saying Prime

Hello ,

      Often the pump gets air in it and does not prime correctly. It will then only pump a little water. To fix this you may need to get rough with the machine. Slamming the reservoir onto the machine will sometimes work, The shake rattle and roll method also will have the desired affect sometimes. Some have turn the machine upside down over the sink, have slapped the sides of the machine, or even shake the machine to get the air out of the lines.
      Once you do get the pump to prime properly, you can keep the pump from getting more air by making sure to fill the reservoir before it gets empty by using a pitcher to fill the tank instead of removing it and filling it.


With some K-cups, the bottom needle does not pierce the bottom of the cup if you simply place the K-cup into the holder and then close the top. Extra effort may be needed to make sure that the K-cup gets seated properly so that the water can flow through the K-cup easily. If you have water still in the K-cup when you remove it after brewing, you are having this problem.


Also here is some more information that could help as well:

Descale the coffee machine....
White vinegar is recommended, but it seems like lemon juice works just as well or even better. Also there are many different commercially sold products to descale coffee machines. One of these is a product called CLR which seems to do a great job. Some people have even used their denture cleaner to descale the coffee brewer. Dissolve a couple of tablets in water and place in the reservoir... then run the solution through the coffee machine to clean it.

Another common problem is that foil from the K-cup lid will get stuck in the needle that punctures the top of the K-cup. Like wise the bottom needle can also get coffee grounds or other debris stuck inside it. Scale from the descale procedure can also be a problem. To get the needles clean the best thing to use is a paper clip. Do not use a toothpick as that can break off inside and cause greater problems. Bend the paper clip so that approximately 1" is straight. Then insert the paper clip into the needle and wiggle to clear any debris. On some brewers the K-cup holder can also be removed, the bottom will twist off to reveal a nozzle that also has small holes that will plug up. Cleaning these holes may be the ticket to a great cup of coffee again.

Check to see if you have water running back into the reservoir when you are brewing a cup of coffee. If you have water bypassing, then you have a problem, there should be no water returning to the reservoir if the brewer is working properly. To stop this from happening there are a few things that you can do.

. You can hold your finger over the white tube in the top of the reservoir to place more
pressure on the water to flow through the needle and expel the debris from the tubing.

Take a can of compressed air like you would use to clean your computer and blow air through the tube(s) in the reservoir and also the needle(s) to clear dirt debris and water from the machine. This process may make a mess so be sure to have the machine is a place where the mess can be cleaned up easily. Some have even used a large tire type air compressor out of desperation, and report that it does work. I would use great care with this method and shoot the air in very short bursts.

Hope this helps......... Mike from fixya.

Sounds like it draws water, but won't make a cup in the morning. I usually have to power cycle a couple of times and then it works fine rest of day.
