    I finally resolved the problem by carefully inserting a paper clip into the needle that punctures the k-cups. Appears this needle periodically clogs. Now when the stream of coffee runs slowly I simply clean out that needle. Be careful though as sometime hot water will spout out as you are doing this. Runs like new.

    SHA BAM!!! Fixed mine like new too! I figured I needed to google the water pumping back into the reservoir! Keurig doesn't tell you the small fixes like this so you'll send the unit back!

    Another fix that worked for my machine which was deemed defective by Keurig, and enabled me to use it long after the replacement was delivered. I filled the return hose where water returns into the reservoir with crazy glue. Once it hardened, no more water flowed back and I got a full cup every time with no noticable issues for 6months...not perect but worked.

    Used a can of compressed air, stuck the can's tube into the right side of the water return spout (the rubbery white hook at the top of the water tank) and gave it a few blasts. Worked like a charm. Then ran it through with 50/50 mix of vinegar and water for a few hours.

    EASY FIX !!!!! All you need is a straightened out PAPAER CLIP
    1. unplug machine
    2.take off water tank
    3.lay machine on its back
    4. open handle as if you were putting in a K CUP
    5. next to the prong that stabs the top of the K Cup are 2 holes - stick the PAPER Clip into each hole and scrape around . The clip goes in about an inch or so.
    6. upright the machine & fill with water
    7. Plug in & Heat up
    8.I WAS SO HAPPY THAT IT WORKED -- FINALLY9.
    9. I made about 10 cups of plain water to get out all of the debris.
    10. then the machine ran like NEW
    It works people PAPER CLIPS :)

I had a similar problem except there was no water going into the K-cup. I fooled around with the machine for awhile but I had no luck. Figuring I had nothing to lose, I broke out a can of air that one uses to clean computer keyboards. I sprayed the air into the nozzle that puts water back into the reservoir and air came out of the water intake hole but not the needle that puts water into the K-cup. This meant that there was a block between the the needle and the reservoir. I plugged the water intake hole with a towel and my fingers then sprayed the air into the same nozzle. All of a sudden, a large blast of water came out of the needle. The machine worked after this. Just be careful not to put your hand in front of the needle because the water might be hot. Also, unplug your machine before doing any tinkering. Hope this might help some people.

    Thanks a lot!The solution above worked perfectly. It was like the pump was running in reverse. I plugged the water intake hole and put the canned air wand into the plastic nozzle that returns water to the reservoir. I let it run for about 30 seconds, several 10 second bursts. Just a cup underneath like you're making coffee since it forces the hot water from the system. I don't know if there was a physical blockage or an air bubble but either way, all is well again. Would have never thought of this.

    Thank you sooo much!! We have only had our Keurig for 3 months and all of the sudden it started putting the water back into the resovior instead of into the coffee cup. I googled and found this page and this soution above. So we bought a can of air and did exactly what you said including not to put our hand in front of where the water would come out since it might be hot (WHICH IT WAS HOT!) so thankyou for preventing burns too! Anyway, now just from the adivce and the can of air it is working like brand new again!! Thank you for saving us and time and us not having to send it in or wait for another one!! Now we need to figure out what the best kind of water is to use for it, we have been using spring water but I don't think it is good for it?

    Thank you sooo much!! We had our Keuring for 3 months and all of the sudden it started putting the water back into the resorvoir. We were worried we would have to send it back to Keurig and be without a coffee make since we got rid of our traditional maker when we bought this one. So I googled and found this page, and your solution was perfect!! Thank you so much! Also it was great that you said to not put our hand in front of it when we used to can of air to avoid burns because the water was hot! Its amazing what great advice and a can of air can do! Now we will do this about twice a month so that it won't build up like that again! We were using spring water but I think we will switch to our tap water now instead! Thank you again!

    Three years later, the legacy of Biotin80 lives on. After no help at all from the company, and wasting a perfectly good paperclip, I broke out the canned air. I just fixed the machine in the Teachers' Room. I am now considered a minor deity. People are bowing to me as they pass by (only slightly, as they have hot coffee in their hands). Thanks so much.

    Thanks biotin80. Based on your direction and others' comments, I unplugged the machine and waited an hour or so for the water to cool. I needed two hands to squirt air into the nozzle. So I put a towel over the intake hole, put my right elbow over the towel. Using my right thumb and index finger to hold the backflow nozzle while squirting the duster into the backflow nozzle with my left hand. Water gushed out from the needle area. My machine brews again. Thanks again everyone.

ok just got off the phone with cust svc... they said something is clogging it. Take a paperclip and straighten it out... insert it into the needle 1.5-2 inches (there are 3 separate holes so poke each hole and rotate for 30 sec. )
Its a pressure system so that is what is causing the delays and short water production and putting water back in the resevoir.

I fired up my Hypertherm Powermax 45 plasma cutter, it will cut 1" thick mild steel. I centered the torch tip on the head of the machine right above were the water is supposed to come out. Making sure the Hypertherm ground clamp was fixed to the baseplate I set the power to 8 and pulled the trigger. The compressed air of the plasma stream melted through the Keurig's cheap black plastic in a blink, slicing into the aluminum housing holding the pump output and needles. The aluminum turned to liquid and the Keurig case burst into flames, black acrid smoke filling my work area. I backhanded the machine to the floor and blasted it with a CO2 fire extinguisher. The melted blob was smoldering on the concrete floor like a Russian satellite that fell through the atmosphere 300 miles and spatted onto my nice floor. My final act was to kick the stinking mass out of bay 2 into a snowbank, where upon entering a satisfying steam noise arose then hissed to silence. No more coffee for you I shouted!

I just did the air thing and it seems to work... but let me give you some cautionary advice... i don't have a can of air, or a bicycle pump...but I do have an air compressor, with the tip to inflate basketballs. Boy did it work...and yes it sprayed hot water EVERYWHERE! (luckily i was in the garage) also, i was stupid and left the freshly used k-cup in there, and that was a bit of a disaster. When coffee grounds came blasting out of there at 110 PSI...

Sorry, I don't have the answer. . .I just spoke with a Customer Support Rep at Keurig who was very friendly, but not very knowlegable about the inner workings of the unit. She said that there were a "number of units" that were made "overseas" and sold around Christmas time that have had defects and that the "technicians" are aware of the problem and have the solution, which seems to be to send me a new coffee maker via FedEx, and to just keep my existing unit if I want. I asked to have a technician please call me back as I'd like to know if there's some way to fix my existing unit in the mean time until I get my new unit and/or to use it as a backup unit. I'm guessing something is partially plugged. I put my finger over the "return tube" that goes back into the reservoir and it seemed to help fill the cup. . .just have to take your finger off a bit here and there as it seems to "vapor lock". . .if I don't figure it out before the new unit arrives, then I'll dissasemble the unit afterwards to try and take a look.

I too have had this problem. The idea of the can of compressed air seemed fantastic, but I didn't have one one hand. I decided to use the next best thing, (and it was also suggested by someone on another site), a bicycle pumped. I inserted the tip into each of the holes of the rubber spout putting water back into the resevoir. Make sure to remove the water tank first. And make sure you have a cup to catch water forced out. This seemed to do the trick.

Our Keurig was making 3/4 cup of coffie and forcing the remaining water back into the reservoir. The maker was less than six months old and we have used only distilled water. I put the nozzle of my air compressor into the plastic reservoir over-flow spout and injected air. Water spewed from the needle and water intake port. The "fix" worked. I just made two cups of coffie with no problem and no back flow into the water reservoir. I suspect that this problem is caused by a valve that sticks or a collasped line that allows the water to escape back into the water reservoir.

I didn't have a can of air handy at 7am --- so I used a bike tire pump and put the nozzle to the rubber tip that was pouring hot water back into the reservoir. Put a mug to catch the hot water already in the machine. Works to clear line blockage!

I can help!

You should never use spring water in a Keurig Brewer. Spring water is hard water. It is full of minerals. Whenever you heat spring/hard water, all the minerals solidify. For example, if you were to boil spring water in your kettle, within a week... you would see white calcium, lime build up inside your kettle.

Keurig brewers operate by puncturing the K-Cup with a very fine needle from the top, infusing the K-Cup with water. Another fine needle punctures the bottom of the K-Cup and releases the water into the cup. If the inside of the brewer becomes full of these solidified minerals... the water can't come through the needle, basically plugging up the brewer.... and there is no way to get inside to clean it all out.

It is essential to use only tap water or distilled bottled water, but never spring water.

Hope that helps!!

:)

For those without air compression at hand, another way to clear out tube blockages in your Keurig is to use a straw. A normal sized straw (bendy necks are even better) fits perfectly over the needle tip and can "seal" against the rubber. You can both blow and suck to dislodge any blockage. You just need to be careful not to pull a large amount of hot water into your mouth. I've used this method several times on my home unit and the one at work. It works well.

Read all the tricks nothing was working took it out to garage got the air compressor out lol a little over doing it but forced air thru bottom of where the water tank sits and the forced air pushed out all the hot water that was in the machine did the 48oz of vinegar flush twice and two tanks of water which mine is 96oz working great. Will now definitely do a vinegar flush once a month realized that wiping the outside area down is not enough. Thanks for all the great tips saved me from buying a new machine

This is common problem with the original Keurig coffee brewers. The volume of water they dispense slowly decreases until one day it practically stops coming out -- instead the blocked water dumps back into the reservoir.

There is actually an easy, easy way to fix them. It is completely non-obvious how to do it, I had to mess with mine for 15 minutes before I figured it out. But once you know the trick, you can clean them in seconds.

The root cause of the problem (most of the time, anyway) is that the needle that pierces the bottom of the K-Cups gets clogged. There is no way to clean the needle without disassembling the K-Cup holder. However, it is actually amazingly easy to do this:

1) Push up from below on the circular K-Cup holder. Wiggle it and push up until it pops out.

2) Now that you have the K-Cup holder in your hand, take a look at it. The bottom third of it is actually detachable. squeeze it gently and twist/jiggle it until this lower cover pops off.

3) Now, you've exposed the bottom of the needle holder. Just blow it out with water or even your mouth -- like a straw. Once it is clear, reassemble the unit and you are good to go. Seriously, it is that easy.

The metal tip used to puncture the Kcup on the top is part of a one way valve that is designed to prevent back flow into the machine, coffee grounds can get lodged into the needle system and fester back into the valve, cleaning it out with a paperclip can work, as well as the forced air..but the valve itself cannot be purchased from Keurig as a part, in addition continued blockages can weaken the pump. They may offer you a discount if you buy a new one. My plan is to disassemble the value with a very fine cutting tool and replace the O rings. I will never purchase another product from this company as long as I live.

Ps, Never drink distilled water, it should only be used for your automobile or your vapor systems.

I tried the compressed air, didn't work, there didn't seem to be a blockage because the canned air blew water from both holes. So after working on this thing for about 2 hours removing various hoses and such I got fed up and took the advice of an above poster to remove the water supply tip it up side down in the sink and smack the bottom and sides.....worked like a charm! I called kurig this morning and have a free replacement on the way but I'm an engineer and tinkering is what I do lol

I followed all of the cleaning and descaling instructions that Keurig recommended and still my machine wouldn't brew a full cup. I don't have a compressor or a pump handy. My solution was: Take reservoir off. Unplug machine. Turn upside down over sink (or bathtub) and shake vigorously. Works like a charm for me. I've had this problem a few times and this method seems to work.

Same problem, water spitting back into the reservoir. I tried cleaning overnight with vinegar, worked a little bit, then same issue. I took my 12v air compressor and blew out the rubber inlet/outlet rubber nipple at the top of the reservoir. Still plugged up so I inserted the compressor hose to the drain at the bottom of the reservoir. Lots of water blew out but it cleared the clog! Thanks forum!

I had this same problem today. No water was coming out the spout it was all going back into the reservoir. I used a paperclip up the needle to clear up anything I could find but that didn't work. I ended up filling the jug up half way with full strength vinegar and trying to run it through about 5 times to get the water out and vinegar in. Then I let it sit for a few minutes. Tried it again and it suddenly started working again. I'll never forget to clean it with vinegar every few months again.

Only brews half a cup on the largest cup setting?


1.Power off machine.
2.Using a metal paperclip, insert it into left side of top needle. It must insert at least 1" deep.Insert it into slot on right side and again from back of needle.
3.Remove KCup cradle.Separate bottom from top.In the top section, insert the paperclip up into bottom needle from the bottom upwards.It will not go all the way thru and this is normal.
4.Reassemble KCup cradle and reinsert it back into coffee maker.
5.Power on machine.
6.Brew a cup of water only.There may be coffee grounds in the water and these should eventually clear during the remaining steps.NOTE: A large cup brew cycle should output a full 8 ounces (235cc).Less means there is still a blockage
7.Empty reservoir and fill with undiluted distilled white vinegar.Repeatedly run brewing cycle until Add Water light comes on.
8.Make sure Auto-OFF is NOT set and let last cycle of vinegar remain inside machine for 4 hours.
9.Refill reservoir with fresh water and repeatedly run brewing cycle until the water is clear and odorless.
10.Set Auto-OFF, if preferred.

Sorry to read about your issue. plus you may have a bad k kups

The brewer should be de-scaled at least every 3-6 months. Scale is harmless, but if left unattended, it can hinder optimal brewer performance. De-scaling your brewer regularly helps maintain the heating element, removable water reservoir and other parts of the brewer that come in contact with water. Better water quality and water heating means a better cup of coffee, tea, hot cocoa or iced beverage. We recommend de-scaling your brewer at least every 6 months (every 3 months if your water has a high mineral content). The de-scaling process involves using 48 ounces of undiluted white vinegar.

Take 48 oz of white vinegar. place in tank. pretend you are making coffee (Do No Use K Cup). let the water fill you mug. then empty that mug. Do it again until tank is empty. then let sit for 4 hours.
Then fill with fresh water to the top. let that tank of water run thru. towards the end taste the water.
If you taste vinegar..use more clean water, until the taste is ok.

Keurig B60. Brand New used maybe 4 Kcups. Now it won't fill a full cup setting. Maybe 1/4 cup. You reset, get a little more to run through. At this rate going to be a long time for a full cup. took...


if water does go thru it...try white vinagar/water mixture about 1/2 cup vinagar to full tank water..
run cycles until empty...NO Kcups..then run full tank of clean water.....

I just bought my Keurig B60 new from a neighbor who bought it and used it once. She didn't like it becuase it didn't fill up her cup. I've had a single cup Keurig for years, but it finally stopped...


1. Power off machine.

2. Using a metal paperclip, insert it into left side of top needle. It must insert at least 1" deep. Insert it into slot on right side and again from back of needle.

3. Remove KCup cradle. Separate bottom from top. In the top section, insert the paperclip up into bottom needle from the bottom upwards. It will not go all the way thru and this is normal.

4. Reassemble KCup cradle and reinsert it back into coffee maker.

5. Power on machine.

6. Brew a cup of water only. There may be coffee grounds in the water and these should eventually clear during the remaining steps. NOTE: A large cup brew cycle should output a full 8 ounces (235cc). Less means there is still a blockage

7. Empty reservoir and fill with undiluted distilled white vinegar. Repeatedly run brewing cycle until Add Water light comes on.

8. Make sure Auto-OFF is NOT set and let last cycle of vinegar remain inside machine for 4 hours.

9. Refill reservoir with fresh water and repeatedly run brewing cycle until the water is clear and odorless.

10. Set Auto-OFF, if preferred.

The keurig spits water into the water resevore and does not make a cup without first turning off the machine and turning it back on several times

My Keurig is leaving a lot of coffee grounds in the cup


I found that the kcups were under pressure. When I insert the kcup, I press down on the cup to puncture the bottom of the cup then close it. Works fine now.
