Question about Keurig B50 Coffee Maker

Open Question

Coffee has been coming out diluted.

The coffee has been coming out very watery. The machine was working fine before this. I spoke to a Keurig rep on the phone and her only advice was to clean it with vinegar. We've only had this machine for 2 weeks. Is there any other reason why it would be more "watery?"

SOURCE: Weak Coffee

I don't have any first-hand experience with this brand. However, it sounds like the coffee grounds are being partially bypassed by the hot water.

One clue that will help diagnose this is: does the carafe fill up to the amount of water that was in the reservoir? If not, that suggests not all the water is being cycled through.

See if the reservoir is completely empty at the end of the brew cycle. Look for any coffee-colored water in the reservoir at the end of the cycle. That would indicate, to me, a defective feed valve in the water path.

SOURCE: Coffee out of the machine seems too watery

Basing on personal experience (you can find more on Google probably), solutions are:

On percolated (filter) coffee machines:

Check water temp, if water temp is insufficient , most common is scale heating element , faulty element, faulty thermostat.
Check if water is dripping right at the center of the filter, if it is dripping on one side because the orifice is clogged, that can result in weak coffee.
Coffee blend not well distributed on filter basket.

On Espresso machines:

Check water temp, same as filter coffee machines (thermostat element, scale on heating chamber).
Ensure that coffee is filled correctly in the filter cup (fill at level), and well pressed.
Ensure that the coffee mixture that you are using is not too coarse, buy the apposite one for espresso.
Ensure that you are not leaving the machine brewing for a time that is too long, and Italian coffee cup is very small, approximately one regular shot.

On the hob moka pots (espresso, Moka and Bialetti type):

This are the trickiest ones, you need art and practice to get a good espresso with a Moka, but when you learn, the result is better than what you may get with an home electrical espresso maker.
The frame on the hob must be not too strong, and the mixture coarse but well pressed, with water at level tag, or you will get a weak coffee.
On Mokas a good strategy is keeping hob at minimum, and turning up the flame at top when coffee starts coming out.

French and turkish cafetieres:

Ensure that you put enough coffee, water hot enough, and that you left the infusion enough time to get a strong coffee.

Note: insufficient pressure and clogged lines on electric machines never give you a weak coffee, exactly the opposite.
Not pressed mixture always gives weak coffee, but too much pressed mixture may give you coffee with bad taste.

SOURCE: The water will not go through the pod to make the coffee

This sounds like the pin used to puncture the K-Cup is clogged with something...

since a K-Cup is not used when making conventional Tea, this sounds like you need to remove the k-cup holder, which, by the way is a 2 piece unit on the B70 models... and I believe is the same for yours...
the lower third of the k-cup holder snaps off... revealing a better look at the Piercing Pin.


Looking at the sharp pin inside the holder, you should notice that it IS hollow... and you need a metal... not plastic coated paper clip and get it through the piercing needle.

I think that will do it...

Lights are flashing but nothing works


i had the exact same problem. when i spoke to a keurig rep, it was suggested that i open the kcup hopper and using a paperclip, clean the three holes in the upper needle. you have to straighten the paperclip so that it will reach about 1 1/2 inch into the hole.
there are three holes that need to clean and the back one, of course, is usually where the problem is. be aggressive! you need to twist/spin the paper clip as you push it in and out. after reaming all three, run a hopper of water through the system. i had to clean my pin three times before my brewer was working properly.
lots of luck.

My coffee tastes watery. It seems as though the water flowing through the filter is going too fast. My other Keurig at work brews much slower, and the coffee is delicious.


Hi, Your coffee is ground too coarse. Make the grind finer as this will slow down the flow rate. If you go too fine it will just dribble and over extract the coffee."bitter". Dazza REPAIRER
