Question about Keurig B100 Coffee Maker

2 Answers

B100 Keurig Eric (Burnzy), I tried the new check valve -in line-with the old one and it didn't fix the problem I am having. When you disassembled the pump, was it the pump on the right side or the pump on the left side?  Was is difficult taking that pump apart? Any tips during disassembly/reassembly?  I admire that you were able to get 3 of these back to working.  Thanks for taking the time to assist me with this. I'm not the most mechanical, but I do like my coffeemaker and I like the challenge.  And thanks for the tip on where to get that check valve!!

The pump is on the right side, has two wires coming out of it, and is connected to the check valve with a silicone hose. When you run a cycle, to brew a cup of coffee, that pump should be pumping air out, which pushes the hot water out of the tank.

So to test it, disconnect the hose and run a cycle to listen and feel for air coming from the pump. If it is not working (frozen due to the water permitted to enter from the failed check valve), you must remove it to dismantle the top part of the pump.

Getting the pump out is a little tricky... as you will see. There is only one philips head ***** holding it in, however, it is not easy to get to. I used a 90 degree angled *****driver, which worked well, after trying many other options.

Once you get it out, remove the three philips head *****s on the top of the pump right near where the hose was connected. Then separate the two sections of the pump. Inside there will be a fitting in the center that spins to actuate the pump. This fitting must be freely moving. If it is not, use WD-40 or a similar product to free the motor.

Clean up all the WD-40 from inside the chamber (so your coffee does not taste like oil) and reassemble. Then test it by running a cycle. The pump should now be working, if not repeat the process until the pump operates.

Since my last post, I have fixed another B100 that had the same issue. Keurig will not sell you a replacement pump or check valve, so you must repair that pump.

Good Luck, I hope this works for you. Erik

    I would love to try this fix, but can't figure out how to open the casing. Simply removing the screws from the bottom don't do it. Can anyone explain the trick to opening the machine for me?

The b 2000 and b2003 have the same pump but different mounting bracket and plug ends

Keurig B100 coffee maker not brewing


KeuSymptom: keurig B100 coffee maker not brewing. If your brewer sounds like it should be brewing but little or no coffee comes out, the problem may be a simple malfunctioning check valve, located on the right hand side of the unit under the plastic cover. If the check valve is clogged or fails, water from the tank leaks into the air pump (located just below the valve) disabling the pump.

The pump that pushes the water out of the tank located on the right hand side of the unit (I included a photo) has a check valve just above it. On my unit the check valve failed allowing water to enter the top chamber of the pump disabling it. The pump was not damaged it just cannot operate correctly with water in it.

Here is the Fix: Disconnect the check valve and make sure it is operating correctly. Mine was clogged with a small amount of mineral deposits, which was cured by a half hour in a glass of vinegar, and a good rinse. Then disconnect the tubing from the top of the pump and run the unit to allowing the water to escape the pump. Make sure there is no water left in any of the tubing between the pump and the check valve, even the smallest amount will disable the pump again. Reconnect everything and it should work.

It sounds like one of two things happened when you disassembled the unit. Either the hose that controls the mechanism for the piercing arm (the part that puts the holes in the k-cup) became disconnected or pinched, causing the water to pour out over/around the k-cup. Or the k-cup holder is clogged or not seated correctly, which would cause the same problem. As for the little button you may have pushed, that can't cause the problem you're experiencing, so don't worry about that. Good luck, let me know if need more help. Erik

B100 only dispences about 2 ounces of water


I removed the top from the hot water tank & repaired the split hose on the intake side. I also disassembled the the right side air pump & freed up the motor that was frozen. apperantly the check valve leaks very slightly & causes some rust build up on top of the pump motor. Should any one need a new motor you can find a universal hobby motor that you could make fit. these motors run on 3 to 18 volts which should be ok. After the repairs I did a good cleaning with whit vinagar. The machine now works as good as new. Hope this helps out other people with the same problem.
