SOURCE: standby light is flashing

I had the same problem with my machine and managed to get it working again in a few easy steps. This machine is great but it can be VERY tempermental so here are a few tips:
1.The barcode reader MUST be clean or it will not read what the disc is (It is the little glass screen where you place the disk.) If it is not clean the lights will all flash.
2. The little floaty thing in the water container has to be floating in order to keep the machine running- if it won't float, shake it well to dislodge the air pocket that might be jambing it.
3. If the red stanby light won't go away, it is because the disc you are using is either damaged or leaking and it WON'T go away until you replace the disc...(you might have to do it more then once) if that doesn't work- try hitting the reset button on the back of the machine (the little black switch that has a (- and o) as well as unplugging and plugging the machine back in. Lastly, what worked for me was inserting a new disk and only partially clicking in the disk so the 'heating' light came on- leave it like that for about 10 seconds and then very slowly close the disc completely. Hope this helped!

SOURCE: Coffee maker not working

I've got a B50 as well, and none of these solutions are quite accurate. The problem is with the ball valve directly above the top needle. You first need to remove the handle by taking out the screw on either side. Mine is some size of torks. Then open the hood and remove the two screws from under it. The hood then lifts right off the body. There is a rubber hose that goes into the top part of the ball valve; this must be removed. You can then use a slightly bent paper clip to reach in carefully and push the ball down to unstick it. It is being pushed up by a spring from underneath, so coming from the bottom with a paper clip just pushed it up tighter in the seat. Once it is clear again, put the hood and handle back on.

I think Keurig should send free replacement valves, maybe better designed as well so they don't stick anymore. If not, I am going to see if I can purchase a replacement.

Brand new machine, out of packing. No self test, just green flashing water light. No noise, nothing happens at all when button is pressed and held, pressed and released.

I think I would start by contact the seller and ask why a brand new machine behaves like that.

PAC N125HP has switched off and is not working.. On off button flashes

Check the heating element. Use an ohm meter to check it. The reading should be 0 - 150 ohms. If it reads a much higher number or a 1, the element is no good.

I have a DCR902T coffee maker. The red ON/OFF light is continually blinking, and pressing the ON/OFF button does not turn it off. Disconnecting the coffee maker does not change the problem. No idea what...

This is telling you that it is time to clean the coffee maker. Press the minute and hour buttons at the same time and hold untl the light stops flashing. Take out the water filter and fill the water tank to 10 cups and add 2 cups of white vinegar. Put the water tank back in, without the water filter. Take out the permenant coffee filter. Turn it on and leave it until about half the water goes through. Turn it off. Let it sit for about an hour, then finish the job. Then, run 2 pots of clean water through. You are good. It will notify you to clean your system every 40 pots or so.
