Question about Keurig B50 Coffee Maker
I had the same issue. After leaving it unplugged for 24 hours, I plugged it back in and the machine worked perfectly. Keurig technical support suggested it was a pressure buildup and that unplugging it simply let the pressure unbuild. The lady I spoke with suggested more regular descaling (but I think that's hardly the problem ... we've had our machine for 3 years with no issues, and our first descale was just a month ago and we used filtered city water). We don't live in a high altitude location, so I know that can't be a problem. She also said if it happens again, there's nothing else that can be done as there's no formal "reset" or anything like that for the brewer. She offered us a B60 brewer for $100, or a B70 for $130 -- both decent savings (even for Canadians even after you factor in duty and such).
PS My menu button also stopped working while the machine was on the fritz, but, now works again. The Keurig person just by the tone in her voice didn't sound surprised at all -- this seems like it's a common problem with this brewer.

This didn't work for me, but I saw that it worked for someone on another forum, so here goes...
If you feel up to taking the bottom plate off your B50, take it off and look at the two connectors (blue & red wires) going to the green part in the center. The vibration of the B50 may have shaken them loose. Reseating the connectors may fix the problem.
Like I said, though, it didn't work for me. Still no love from the B50. It's just over 2 years old, though, so it's out of warranty. Maybe I'll see if I can weasel a B70 for Valentine's Day.

Screen says descale? What do I need to do to repair or "descale"?
