Question about Keurig B60 Coffee Maker

1 Answer

When cleaning our Keurig B60 with vinegar, a red rubber washer with about an 1/8 inch hole appeared from nowhere. I don't have a clue as to where it belongs but I feel that I have to replace it. Help.

That washer goes around the needle that punctures the K-cups. It provides a seal so water doesn't come back out around the needle.

My keurig B60, I think?? I don't have the manual, either spits out water everywhere or brews the grounds into the cup?


You need to clean the innards once in a while with vinegar. Try their website for the manual. It has cleaning instructions.

How to clean keurig


It might be time to clean your keurig. Fill the water tank with vinegar and run through about 5-6 glasses leaving time in between to let the vinegar clean. After running all of the vinegar through it should be brewing regularly again.

After descaling my B60 I don't get enough water through it


Run a little bit of vinegar water through it that should clean out the lines and allow better flow

My Keurig B60 will not brew. The "ready to brew"


Having same problem with B60 turns off after 1 minute and little circle won't go away.After unit was stored for 5 months, So this is what I did. 1. I took it over to the sink and turned it upside down and shook it. 2. I dried out the whole where the water sucks up and blew through there with a straw. 3. then I sucked water out the rubber tube up top for the over flow. Then I put vinegar in the intake whole and put vinegar in the tank and let it sit overnight. When I got up in the morning i turned it on and after 1 min it shut off again so I restarted it and after a couple minuets it started to heat and my display came back and circle disappeared. Problem solved. Not sure which one worked but it is now working fine and I am now descaling it.

My keurig says I need to descale.How?


Descaling depends the size of the reservoir. I see the B60 but not the B66 at the Keurig site. The two units are apparently the same from searching the support side of the Keurig site: http://www.keurig.com .

For the Mini coffee makers, you use 20 oz of vinegar (2 10 oz cycles). For the larger Keurig units, it takes 48 oz of vinegar.

In either case, fill the reservoir with vinegar and put a large ceramic (12 oz mug for the mini unit) mug on the drip tray. Do not add a K-cup. For the B60 (and probably the B66), press the Brew button. Discard the vinegar after the cycle. Repeat the brew process until Add Water is indicated. Discard the vinegar each time. Then wait 4 hours with the unit on. Discard the remaining vinegar and rinse the reservoir. Fill the reservoir with 48 oz of water and brew several cups without a K-cup until the "Add water" message appears. Discard the water in the mug each time. Repeat the vinegar cleaning if De-scale still appears in the LCD. Run more water without the K-cup if you notice a remaining taste in the coffee after the rinse procedure.

For the mini, fill the reservoir with 10 oz of water, lift the Brewer handle and lower it after 5 seconds with no K-cup in the unit. Press the Brew button. Discard the vinegar after the cycle. After the first cycle, pour the other 10 oz of vinegar into the Cold Water Reservoir. Lift the handle and lower it after 5 seconds. Press the Brew button and wait until the light becomes steady. When vinegar starts to be dispensed, power off the unit. Wait 30 minutes. Then power on the unit and lift and lower the handle again. Then discard the vinegar after the cycle. Next run 4 rinse brew cycles with 10 oz of water each time. Discard the water each time. The unit should be ready to brew with a K-cup after the 4 rinse cycles.

I hope this helps.

How do I clean my B60 Keurig of scale


Empty the water...
start with half distilled water... half white vinegar...
just run it all day... take a break and let the vinegar work... it will be heated up in the main tank... then pushed out to all hoses and sensors etc.etc...

enpty the container... wash it out... fill it with filtered or distilled water and run that until you no longer taste/smell the vinegar...
consider buying a brita pitcher and use that water for your Keurig... I do... and my unit goes for a long long time before it needs a vinegar washing...

P.S. dont use C.L.R. :(
It tastes bad.

B60.Coffee maker was working fine untill yesterday, now brews 1 cup and pump starts but does not pump and machine shuts off. Help me. Bill Cobb


Hi Bill, sounds like similar a problem I had with my Keurig Coffee maker. Your pump may be plugged with mineral deposit build-up from your water. Do you use regular tap water or filter it in any manner?
Have you ever cleaned the insides with vinegar? Empty your reservoir of water, and pour a bottle of white vinegar into the reservoir. Run the maker through several cycles to ensure the vinegar has worked its way throughout the ‘guts’ of your maker, and then let it sit for 2-4 hours.
Empty any remaining vinegar from the reservoir and then cycle at least two full reservoirs of water through to flush the vinegar out. When you stop smelling vinegar in your coffee cup, you’ll know when there’s no vinegar left inside.
You should probably clean you Keurig once a year, or more depending on how heavily you use it.
SWMBO tells me you’ll find similar instructions above in the Owners Manual or you can check out this link: http://www.ehow.com/how_4927372_clean-keurig-coffee-machine.html
Good Luck, I hope this helps! – Howard, Burke, VA
