SOURCE: Keurig after filling cup fails to pull water from reservoir

There is a major design defect with all the newer Keurigs, including the B60 and the B70/B77. My understanding is that Keurig has redesigned the pump mechanism that extracts water from the reservoir and into the brewer (there's a second pump that forces the hot water through the K-cup, and it's not involved). They are now using a small DC motor and impeller pump, which is much quieter (to address complaints in many reviews) but the new design just doesn't work.

It appears that air gets into the system, and the new pump isn't strong enough to "self-prime" in this case. So the pump motor runs and runs without water going through it, and eventually turns itself off so it doesn't burn out (it should usually take only a few seconds to fill the internal tank). Many people think the problem centers around the 'check valve' in the base of the unit, just below where the clear reservoir seats itself: Theory is that the tiny pump can't pull hard enough to open the check valve to let water flow, especially when there's any air in the system.

I've had two B77 units already myself, and both have failed this way within only a few weeks. FWIW, the workaround I discovered is to turn the unit on, and lift up the water-filled reservoir about 1-2" as if you're removing it. Then jam it back down into place, hard and fast. Doing this injects just enough pressure into the system to open the check valve, and if the pump motor is running, you'll hear (and see) it immediately start transferring water from the reservoir to the chamber. You'll often have to do this between each cup you brew, and again when you first turn on the system.

There are hundreds of similar reports all over the Internet about this issue, and apparently no real solutions from Keurig yet (I don't even know if they're acknowledging the problem). Other symptoms include brewing half-filled cups of coffee, as others on this forum have reported.

I suggest everyone call Keurig's customer service and file complaints about this until they come up with a fix. Don't let them tell you it's a problem with your AC power or your hard water (they'll try excuses like tthose first). And until they redesign this, there's not much point in having them ship you a refurbished replacement for your brand-new machine, because chances are it will quickly fail just like your old one.

SOURCE: Water doesn't come down when brewing

I had the same problem, and it turned out it was the top needle that was clogged. I used a safety pin to clean out the needle and it worked again . . . I descaled immediately, just in case it needed that too. I am back to coffee goodness!

The machine overflow after the coffee cup has been filled, this then runs into the tray below and my coffee froth has gone


which machine are you using ? without knowing that, it is a little difficult to help much. generically, you may be putting too much water into the reservoir. - more than one cup of water will definitely overflow if the reservoir is already filled.

ICAPP-4 - A Wiki Manual


Cuisinart ICAPP-4 – Iced Cappucino and Hot Espresso Maker – A Wiki Manual
By Tha Mp3 Doctor (who also loves Cuisinart)

Since I am not well-versed in the copyright laws regarding reprinting copies of standard user’s manuals online, I am writing this Wiki Manual for the ICAPP-4. My unit is 12 years old (in 2009) and continues to run strong through two different owners.
General Directions for Making Iced Cappuccinos
- Place carafe on top of drip/tray grate with handle touching right front of ICAPP – the ice fill lines should be visible when looking at front of unit
- Turn “milk knob” to OPEN position, and open lid of ICAPP
- Remove milk container, espresso collector, espresso spinner cup and cover
- Put espresso collector back in place with two plastic teeth facing front of machine
- There is a stepped fill line inside water reservoir that measures off 1,2, and 4 cups
- Fill water reservoir with either 1,2 or 4 fill line cups – do not overfill to avoid damaging the electronics
- Add espresso grounds to espresso spinner cup
- Line up teeth of spinner cup cover with spinner cup so that the cover locks into place
- Fill milk reservoir with 3 oz of milk per cup of iced cappuccino that you plan to make – there is a fill line that measures off 2 cups or 4 cups
- Fill carafe with either 2 cups worth of ice or 4 cups, depending on how much iced cappuccino you plan to make
- Press down on lid and turn milk knob to HEAT postion
- Turn ICAPP on using the ON/OFF button – it will begin to heat – takes about 5-6 minutes (HEAT light will stay on during this process – doesn’t make noise or steam for several minutes)
- When READY light turns green, turn the milk knob to the DISPENSE MILK position – your espresso and milk will start dispensing
- Unit turns itself off automatically when ready – takes several minutes

How many grams are in a cup


Assuming yogurt weighs about as much as water, 1 pint of water weighs about 1 pound (16 oz). Two cups to a pint, so one cup weighs about 8 oz.

My keurig says I need to descale.How?


Descaling depends the size of the reservoir. I see the B60 but not the B66 at the Keurig site. The two units are apparently the same from searching the support side of the Keurig site: http://www.keurig.com .

For the Mini coffee makers, you use 20 oz of vinegar (2 10 oz cycles). For the larger Keurig units, it takes 48 oz of vinegar.

In either case, fill the reservoir with vinegar and put a large ceramic (12 oz mug for the mini unit) mug on the drip tray. Do not add a K-cup. For the B60 (and probably the B66), press the Brew button. Discard the vinegar after the cycle. Repeat the brew process until Add Water is indicated. Discard the vinegar each time. Then wait 4 hours with the unit on. Discard the remaining vinegar and rinse the reservoir. Fill the reservoir with 48 oz of water and brew several cups without a K-cup until the "Add water" message appears. Discard the water in the mug each time. Repeat the vinegar cleaning if De-scale still appears in the LCD. Run more water without the K-cup if you notice a remaining taste in the coffee after the rinse procedure.

For the mini, fill the reservoir with 10 oz of water, lift the Brewer handle and lower it after 5 seconds with no K-cup in the unit. Press the Brew button. Discard the vinegar after the cycle. After the first cycle, pour the other 10 oz of vinegar into the Cold Water Reservoir. Lift the handle and lower it after 5 seconds. Press the Brew button and wait until the light becomes steady. When vinegar starts to be dispensed, power off the unit. Wait 30 minutes. Then power on the unit and lift and lower the handle again. Then discard the vinegar after the cycle. Next run 4 rinse brew cycles with 10 oz of water each time. Discard the water each time. The unit should be ready to brew with a K-cup after the 4 rinse cycles.

I hope this helps.

When I pour water into (empty) pot to fill. Bunn coffee maker


If you pour water into the machine, and water comes out, then the reservoir is full of water. There is no way the water can bypass the reservoir and go directly into the pot.

I need instructions for a Cuisinart Iced Cappuccino Maker


I have a PDF of the user manual if you want me to e-mail it to you. In the meantime, here is my Wiki Manual (BTW, pagan, the machine does make hot espresso or cappucino, but it doesn't froth per se like a regular espresso machine - it just heats the milk internally and dumps it into the espresso):

General Directions for Making Iced Cappuccinos
- Place carafe on top of drip/tray grate with handle touching right front of ICAPP – the ice fill lines should be visible when looking at front of unit
- Turn “milk knob” to OPEN position, and open lid of ICAPP

- Fill water reservoir with either 1,2 or 4 fill line cups – do not overfill to avoid damaging the electronics

4. Press the large mug Button
- let Keurig coffee maker fill mug with vinegar & empty in sink.

b) run regular brew cycles WITHOUT using a K-cup.
c) pour rinse water into sink each time.
