WIll not brew

All the lights work fine, put in water, put in K-Cup ... "ready" light comes on, press the "Brew" button .... nothing happens.
Could this be the thermal sensor, or something else?

Try this, worked for me:

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.

How do we insert the coffee pods


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.

Put in water turn on green light is on nothing happens


The green light is used for setting an automatic brew time. Turn the brew button until its red and your coffee will begin brewing.

How do you turn on a Keurig to get a cup of coffee - I hit the button and it says green and ready but nothing is coming out - I put the cup's worth of water in the side container - what do I do to get it...


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 :)
