Question about Keurig Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines

1 Answer

How can I fix my Keurig Coffee maker? It pumps water from the time it is turned on 'till it indicates add water. Any suggestions?

Water starts pumping as soon as unit is turned on, keeps pumping until "add water" indicator flashes. Have already tried descaleing, emptying and turning upside down and giving it a good slap and shake....still won't stop pumping and doesn't heat water at all...

Either the heating element has failed or a thermal overheat trip device or thermal fuse has failed

you need to use a meter and see if the heating element is getting AC power
perhaps the pump actuator usualy a relay or a triac device has failed and gone short or fused contacts ....

hard one to diag from words only

My Keurig coffee maker will not pump water into the chamber, I have tried the fixit suggestions but to no aavail. Machine was used less than 6 months.

Take the K-cup insert out.
Insert a small paperclip and carefully insert upward into exit needle, swirl to dislodge debris (clog could be preventing H2O uptake).
Do this for all three of the holes in the exit needle.
Add distilled white vinegar to reservoir.
Run "Brew" without a KCup to see if this clears the reservoir uptake and exit needle.
Fill reservoir with water and run to clear vinegar from system.

Won't prime

The water pump system is not primed properly. Remove the water tank while the pump is running and put back a couple of times. If not working, when the power is off, using a straw, blow air through and try to **** through the water port at the bottom of Keurig. Plug the water tank again in and start the system. It will take some time to prime, keep trying. There is nothing wrong with the machine, but the water pump circuit.

the air pump in the machine might be locked up. if it is you will have to take the machine apart, not fun, and locate the air pump behind the water tank. take the pump apart and try to turn the pump manually until it moves freely. good luck

Keurig coffee maker won't draw water from the resevoir

I just got mine to work by forcing water into the pump to force it to prime. I took a syringe for a meat injector and built a gasket so it would seal over the water intake. Then I forced several syringes of water into the pump till it finally picked up and caught its prime.

This morning my Keurig sounds like it begins to pull water then stops. I tried to cut it off then back on. Still didn't work.Removed water from reservoir and K-cup and added pure vinegar. Ran machine several times without filter or Kcup by pressing cup selector several times. You must open K-cup holder and close each time. I had to do this about a dozen times before the water began to draw again. Flushed system by filling water reservoir with fresh water, and brewed just plain water until vinegar was gone.Works like brand new.

B 50, starts and stops right away

My B50 just did the same thing. Since I had registered it I called Keurig and they said it cannot be fixed but they are sending me a new coffee maker. It is still under warranty. Nice folks. This makes me think that it is a known problem that is not worth fixing or can't be fixed easily.
