Loud water pump

When the machine is pumping water from the resevoir it makes a loud grinding and vibrating noise. I called Keurig, and they tell me this is normal. Any ideas on how to stop/quiet this noise?

    Same thing. Brand new, awful grinding/vibrating noise. Exactly what you don't want before you've had that first cup. We've done nothing so far other than this research to see if we were alone here. Considering just returning it, though might try a thin rubber mat base first, just in case.

    Keurig b70 Have the same problem the machine almost moves on the counter from vibration and the noise is very annoying

    We have the same problem. Tried placing a rubber mat underneath, and a stack of placemats. Both helped to muffle the sound a bit, but still annoyingly loud.

    Ditto. Another who owns one had same experience. Personally, it's a deal breaker. Not the sort of ambiance for relaxing with your favorite soothing hot beverage. And the cobalt blue lights - just 'cold'.

    I love my machine but I HATE the noise! My husband and I work different shifts, so it oftens wakes one of us up. I'm wondering if we should upgrade for a more silent cup in the morning?

SOURCE: the water pump does not appear to be working

The Keurig machine is either clogged with coffee grounds or the air bladder needs to be replaced. Use the key tool under the tray to clean out machine. If this does not work you can have the machine repaird. I hope this works.

Loud drilling noise when coffee switch is turned on - rather than the usual purring noise - and no coffee delivery either


How old is your machine ? and what maintenance have you done over time such as replacing the shower curtain located at the pourring end of the hot water ? I had too very loud noise coming occasionnally from the stainless steel rack holding the cup while coffee is delivered. If your ground coffee is too fine it will stop flow during making a shot. Is water coming out when no coffee is placed in the portafilter.The water pump on this machine is a cheap pump that has to be replaced over time. Mine is 7 years old and has delivered four cups of expresso everyday of the year, and still working.3841c994-fb4b-459f-8d1f-710e0aafc3c0.jpg 2ead4f70-37c6-4236-a9c2-992dba149c4c.jpg

Replace water pump on frigidaire affinity


Plug off the wall. Open the door, keep your thumb at the opening and move the drum towards you and to the back of machine. If you hear some clicking or vibration, your bearings have shot. YouTube makes it easy to change.

Pl click if helped.

This the water pump when is working. It should make loud noise. In extreme case in very loud but after a while it become less loud. If just consider that other smaler models have a smaler pump which is silent pump but they dont have it work always so in you case you a very good coffee result.

Loud grinding noise from unit when flushed like


take the pump out and haul it outside and spray it off and check in the bottom of the pump to make sure there isn't anything stuck in there. then shop vac the bottom of the tank out to make sure there isn't anything funky in there that would get clogged in the pump. sometimes the out let line gets clogged as well you can buy a drain king ( it's a rubber deal that hooks on the end of a hose and when you turn water on it swells up and sprays water out) then stick it in the outlet pipe and let her rip and see if it lets the water through.

I have an old ariete centro caffe espresso machine with a coffee grinder. I filled up the resevoir with water and it seems that the pump is not pumping the water through the machine. My question is does it...


Hi Hi rolo 124,

does the pump make noise? If so, you can try to fill up the hose with water, sometimes it works. If the noise ist first loud then less loud may be that the water cant flow, because the whole maschine is calcified, try to decalcify, best and secure way with tartaric acid. If there is no noise, the pump may be damaged, or there is a fuse blown (mechanical or electric) at the pump.

Good luck

Jens
