After dismantling the B100 and trouble shooting the machine I determined that the hose leading to the air pump on the right side of the B100 allowed water to back flow into the motor. The small amount of moisture eventually caused the motor to fail.
I had to find a scrap machine, which most people that have bought this piece of equipment have just thrown it in the trash, and remove the motor from the opposite side which still functioned. Since it is designed to mount to a specific side I had to appoxy the motor into place. To keep the problem from occuring again I purchased a check valve from a local pet store and put it in-line with the motor.
This solved the problem at the source and has prevented moisture from getting into the motor. Now I am a proud owner of a Frankin Pot. It's alive!

These brewers are defective & Keurig is replacing them with new units @ no cost. Just call the toll free # (866-901-2739) & they will ship out a replacement in 3 to 10 business days. I own (2) of the B77's & they have both been replaced. Even if not the above mentioned model, call them anyway & see what they will do for you......

SOURCE: Keurig water pump doesn't work
Just today we've found that at the first water intake (on my B60, that's where the water container plugs into the base) on the base is a little circle valve type thing. That's where the water gets sucked out of the tank. Shine a flashlight into that circle, and you'll see a screen type thing there. It's like the screen in your faucet when you unscrew the tip and there are little rocks and stuff in it? Same principle: there was cotton fibers and other assorted weird stuff clogging that screen. Used a toothpick or a needle and removed all the debris from the screen, and it now works perfectly!

This is a very common problem, just call Keurig tech support. Explain the problem and they will send you a replacement unit and you get to keep you old partially functional unit. I bought mine in December 2009 and I'm on my 3rd unit already. They keep having the same pump issue and Keurig just keeps sending me replacement units. Their customer service is great, but I'm beginning to question their quality control.

1. Power off machine.
2. Using a metal paperclip, insert it into left side of top needle. It must insert at least 1" deep. Insert it into slot on right side and again from back of needle.
3. Remove KCup cradle. Separate bottom from top. In the top section, insert the paperclip up into bottom needle from the bottom upwards. It will not go all the way thru and this is normal.
4. Reassemble KCup cradle and reinsert it back into coffee maker.
