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 were 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!
Keurig has a customer service center that you can call. The technicians there will help you with almost any problem you have. That number is 1-866-901-2739. Most problems are caused by blockage in the needles. You have to clean both the one in the k-cup holder and the top lid area. A tooth pick works great for that. Good luck.
You probably have an open check valve, using to strong a vinegar solution for cleaning eats away at the glue holding the check valve together, as a result you are sucking air, take the bottom off, pull out the check valve, apply a little super glue and you are golden, alternatively you could purchase a new check valve. I fixed mine this morning.
Mine had the same problem. Everything looked and worked fine until I pressed the brew button and it would make it's normal sound for about 2 or 3 seconds and then stop, with a few drops of coffee falling into the cup. I took a pin and cleaned out the top pin that pierces the K-cup, and it worked fine again. It must have been clogged. Hope this helps.

Here are some of the most common problems that can cause your drip coffee maker to stop working:
The power cord or on/off switch can go bad.
In either of these cases, it's best to get a pro to replace it or buy a
new coffee maker -- replacing it improperly can lead to a fire.
The one-way valve can get clogged open or closed. You can usually fish out the debris that causes this problem with a toothpick.
The tubes can get clogged with calcium.
This is especially true of the aluminum heating tube. The normal way to
solve this problem is to run vinegar through the machine once, and then
run two batches of water through to clean out the vinegar.
There are two problems that are nearly impossible to fix:
Failure of one of the heat-sensitive switches
(This is The coffee maker's temperature sensors)
Failure of the heating coil:
(This is the The coffee maker heating coil)
Because it's nearly impossible to get replacement parts, you probably
have to buy a new coffee maker if one of these problems disables your
Now, when you make coffee tomorrow morning, you can do so with a new appreciation for exactly what's happening inside.

Open the brew mechanism. Opening the brew mechanism will initiate the heating of the water and the HEATING light will flash. 2 Place a clean cup on the cup stand, adjusting the height of the stand up or down so that the rim of the cup is close to the brew mechanism. • To adjust the cup stand, insert your finger in the center of the stand, lift and turn. • To avoid spilling over, please choose the right sized cup for the drink you are making. 3 Position your choice of T-DISC on the T-DISC holder, label facing down. Firmly close the brew mechanism by pressing the clamp down until it shuts. The HEATING light may flash again as the machine heats the water to the required temperature for your drink. 4 When the AUTO light illuminates, press and release the start/stop button. Brewing will start automatically. There may be a short pause during brewing; this is normal and is designed to draw out the full flavor of your drink. The AUTO light flashes throughout the brew cycle. When the machine has finished brewing, the indicator light will move from AUTO to MANUAL and then, after a delay of 30 seconds, to HEATING. 5 Open the brew mechanism, remove the T-DISC and discard. Your drink is now ready to be enjoyed. You can prepare the next beverage right away by repeating steps 2 - 5.
I know on mine I have to open and close the chamber where I put my coffee. It then blinks ready and I press the size cup I want to brew. Hope this helps! :) And sometimes if there isn't enough water in the reservoir it won't brew so try and putting more than just a cup's worth of water in it :)
