No water coming out of spout

I recently received the Keurig Elite as a gift. It was working fine for a few weeks and now all of the sudden, no water comes out of the spout. It boils the water just fine and then makes noises like its going to come out, but then nothing comes out. Please help, this unit is brand new!

Mine did that also. All I did was to remove the reservoir and clean it and then clean the area where the water goes into the machine under the reservoir. It worked. It was a minor clog of some kind. Also make sure the little pin that penetrates the K-cup isnt clogged. A little pin up inside will clean it out. Good luck. I also found that using distilled water makes a big difference in making better coffee and will eliminate scaling problems.

This happened to my machine after my husband started using his own ground coffee. It turns out that he wasn't grinding the beans fine enough and they were clogging the part around where the metal thingie pierces into the kcup (from above).
The solution that worked for us, was to insert a paperclip into the three holes around this metal thingie. In the instruction manual it tells you how to do this, under "cleaning the machine". You can read the instruction manuel online also. I used a flashlight to help me see the three holes.
I now have to clear out these holes every week or so, but once you know how, it is very easy and it does the trick!

Keurig troubleshooting


had the same issue as you do, unplug the unit. I let it sit unplugged for about a minute and then plugged it back in. Suddenly, it appeared to be functioning normally again. The screen indicated the full range of brewing size selections and when I selected my size and hit the brew button, it actually drew water from the reservoir, then it brewed a nice hot cup of water. It's been working fine ever since

All of a sudden my mom's Keuring B40 won't make a full cup of coffee.


Mine started to do that about a month ago. I would have to brew multiple "cups" just to fill one coffee cup. I ran several cycles of the largest cup, without any K-cups, to clean out the small metal spout. After about 3 hot-water cycles, it worked fine. I do this periodically, as I don't use the Keurig daily, so some of the residue builds up between uses.

My keurig coffee maker is making really watered down coffee, and i have no idea why. I've tried 5 different k cups and they all come out heavily watered down with almost no coffee at all in them.


I have no idea what this is but perhaps the water spout is out of alignment with the filter and missing the coffee. Check for small blockages that could be misdirecting the flow of water.
