Question about Keurig B60 Coffee Maker

1 Answer

Coffee won't pass through pod

Th coffee gathers in the area just above the pod. Only a very small quantity goes into the cup. I cleaned the removable cup but this didn't help. The used pods only have one hole on the bottom. I called Keurig and they had me stick a paper clip up the three holes on the lid. Still doesn"t work I suspect that the device that punctures the pod isn"t going down far enough but I can't tell why.

The K-cup is punctured at the top and at the bottom.
you can take a corkscrew, and puncture a number of holes in the bottom of the K-Cup... verify there is a hole at the top... just before you start to brew... press down on the black arm over the cup... but not too hard...Lets see what happens... if it all looks good... no problems... then we need to either adjust the arm... or shim the k-Cup up a little bit...
you may also check the rubber Seal around the top pin that punctures the K-cup...
sounds like you lost your rubber seal around the top of the K-cup...

you can re-phrase after looking and testing....

I keep getting small cups of coffee.


I have one of these coffee makers also and having the same issue. The machine is getting limed up. Run some vinegar through it. What I found also a little trick is to turn the machine on, place a cup underneath like you were brewing a cup and press the brew button. Let the remaining water come through and the next time you will get a full cup. But this does not solve the issue. Liming seems to be the issue with these makers.

Stop a whole litre of water going through each time i put a pod in.


The way to program the quantity of water is to press & hold the button you are programming until the amount of water you want is in the cup, then release it. Next time you make a cup with that same button with a single press this time it should cut off with that same amount in the cup. If that doesn't work then take it back, that is what a guarantee is for.

My nespresso machine stops long before it should.


Most Nespressos that I have worked on have an auto programme function. Put the pod in and a cup under it, press AND HOLD the button down until desired quantity is in the cup. Release the button, that should programme it to deliver that same quantity next time.

The coffee coming out is too long and is getting progressively longer! We can no longer make a short coffee.


Goodmorning,

First you should adjust the level to place the cup on, once you did it, there is a pommel in the center of the machine, that regulates the lenght of your coffee (small cup icon is ristretto/small quantity on the left and big cup icon is lungo/big quantity) you just have to turn the pommel on the lenght desired.

Good work!

The water or coffee does not come out correctly anymore. When making a cup of coffee (w/ pod) or just hot water (no pod), the hot liquid does not come out in a steady stream, it goes everywhere. When i...


211333Sorry to read about your issue.

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.

I tried to help you. Please help me and Vote/Rate this response. Thanks and good luck

Water does not seem to be getting to the heating area


I'm not sure if your saying it does not brew a cup of coffee at all or it is brewing but only cold water comes out. If it is just sitting there making a whinning noise and not delivering water it may just be dirty. To clean it you need to fill the resivior with a 50% white viniger and 50% water mixture. Run a brew cycle and let it sit for an hour. Then run several cycles through until it is out, refill the resivior with water only, run it completely through and continue with the water only until there is no more viniger smell or tatse. You will need to clean the brewer needle heads as well. Lift the handle to access the coffee pod compartment, remove the pod basket and use a paper clip to clean out the hole in the puncture needle. With the lever still raised, use the paper clip to clean out the three holes in the upper needle head. Replace the pod basket, close the handle and run a couple brew cycles through without a coffee pod.

Water goes into bottom tray


One possible problem is to try to clean the group shower which it can be ansrew by one center screw and if you can you can open the machine and remove to clean also the coffee group solenoid valve. Both the valve and shower can be full of dry coffee that can blocked the way of water coming to the grounded coffee.
One other posibble problem is the vibrating water pump. It might be full of scale and it can not create any pressure or it is completetly damage and need to be replaced.
First we sugest to perform a descaling of the machine and try again.
Second you should try to reduce by little the quantity of the grounded coffee used. Aprox you should use 7 to7.5 gr of coffee. If you try to use about 6 to 6.5 and you have the coffee runing out from the machine like in 25 sec you have about 30 cc of water.
If you manage to clean everything above and the machine work ok so from now on in order to avoid the problem again try to flush water from the group many times without any coffee. With this is like you wash the group shower and valve from any remai coffee.
Good luck

Saeco machine - only produces a small amount of coffee


Remove the brew unit and look at the top where the spout leaves the top piston(red oring) you will notice a small tube being held down with 2 screws, remove screws and carefully lift tube, and remove spring and white plastic ball(do not lose ball). Clean that chamber it will be blocked with coffee grounds. Re-assemble and try machine.
