Question about Keurig Platinum B70 Coffee Maker

3 Answers

First time using, doesn't seem to be taking in any water

The machine does not appear to be taking in any water - it is our first time using it ever, and it would not finish the prime cycle, so we turned it off and started over, but it continues to not progress to actually returning any liquid. It makes noise as though it is taking in water, but the water level in the tank does not appear to change. I've checked the valve on the water reservoir, which appears to be functional (splashed water on myself when I manually depressed the valve) - not sure what else to try. It is a Keurig Platinum B70.

    Thanks, we actually got it working by loading the water tank very full (to build water pressure) and running it several times - eventually it did take in water, and the machine is now working beautifully. So, you were right - high pressure was the solution. Thank goodness we did not have to send it back for an exchange.

    I had the same problem, it made a grinding noise for 10 seconds, and we waited an hour and nothing happened, just flashed Not Ready, tried unplugging, replacing water, hit buttons, and sadly nothing happened. We called customer service, and nothing worked. We left it on overnight and still this morning it flashed Not Ready, so I packed it up and sent it back. I hope they will replace with a working machine before the holidays!

You can check or have someone to check this for you. It requires removing the bottom of the maker. Looking inside and reconnecting the water tubing. This solved our problem with this unit. It seems that because of the vibration it shakes the water tubing loose. When it is reconnected it allows water to move from the tank to the machine with out any trouble. I pray this helps!

I had the same problem, but Keurig is replacing it without any problem.

The machine shook loudly for four minutes, then I unplugged it, as it sounded like the pump wasn't getting water. When I plugged it back in, all I got was a "NOT READY" (steady, not blinking) and it never went away. I wish there was a reset button so I could try the priming cycle again.

You have internal probleme whit your keurig. the only thing we recommand to try and if posible, is try to blow whitout leak (to built pressure) in water inlet at the same time the machine try to pump. you can make it by simulating water level whit and magnet a the right place and right pole (side). but I think our machine is brand new or not to old and keurig will exchange whitout probleme.

My Bissell proheat2x leaks water from bottom of machine, if you have the water tank full and cleaner and leave it sit it drains out onto the floor, it leaks when you are using it to, is this a seal or...

Nope, not a seal problem, just natural good old fashioned natural gravity. I know it doesn\'t take long for it to start leaking after use but Bissell covers this in the manual. Thoroughly clean the unit, run clean rinse water through every cycle and empty all tanks and cavities after use. Do not leave water in any of the tanks when not in use. What doesn\'t leak on your floor (which doesn\'t take long) could cause permanent blockages in the lines. It\'s a pain, I know, but I use the garage or back deck to park and prep mine after use.

When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem: It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer. It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

Bosch Axxis WFL 2060 Front Load Washer - DRUM DOESN'T CYCLE

This seems to be a fault with the program controller unit or the water level sensor. The program does not advance further after the inlet is filled but operates the drain to exit water. Now the water level sensor must be checked as if this is not working in the stipulated time it will drain out. Also unless the water level sensor contacts on reaching of set level the motor must start.

Any time you run out of water when the machine is operating, you will need to prime the machine again through the wand not the brew head. Turn the knob on the left and then turn the machine on. The pump should get quite after a few seconds and water should come through the wand. If it doesn't you need to turn the machine off. Get a asperator bulb or you can use a turkey baster. Fill with water and stick on the end of the tube going to the pump . Turn the machine back on ( the knob should still be open), and squeeze the bulb to force water into the line. If the pump changes tone, turn the machine off. Remove the bulb and put the tube back into the tank . Try the machine again.

Thats strange, F10 means no cold fill.
Ok back to basics, you can check the pressure switch by taking off the tube and gently blowing into it and I mean gently, you should hear a click if its ok - make sure the other end is'nt blocked, blow it out with a cycle pump near the drum end

My Jura Capresso coffee maker is "shorting" the coffee, delivering espresso-sized portions instead of larger volume coffee. The electronics seem to be malfunctioning.

The sieve in the brew unit is probably clogged, this means that it takes to long to push the water through the coffee. There is an automatic time-out on the pump that controls this. It also can be that your coffeeoutlet is clogged.

Try cleaning out any used coffeegrounds from the inside of the machine, use your finger up into the brew unit. If this doesn`t help, it needs service.

Water appears to collect in the tub when the machine is not in us

This is caused by a faulty inlet valve solenoid. It is allowing water to run into the tub. The solenoids can be tested using a multimeter for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty solenoid and the water inlet valve will need replaced. See the attached photo for reference. Hope this helped and best wishes.
