Question about Keurig B70 Coffee Maker
If your Brewer is registered with Keurig you can call Customer Service and explain your problem. Most likely they will send you a new one. I'm on my third replacement. Taking the Brewer apart is difficult to say the least. I still have the last B70 Brewer that they replaced. Have been trying to get it apart without much success. If you search "Keurig removing panels" there is an answer to have to rmove the panels but it isn't complete enough to help.

Once you take the plate off the bottom, another black plastic bottom section that also unscrews needs to be removed... this requires you to cut a ty-rap from the hose attaching to the motor and removing the Blue leds with one screw. be sure to go buy some tyraps as you cannot reuse these.
From there you can work on getting the outside black plastic cover off... HOWEVER... you start from the right side... the side away from the water container...
The black plastic that circles the unit is screwed on the top inside with the silver top hiding those 2 screws... there are 2 screws one each on the left and right side.
this procedure dents up the silver top plastic piece... since you have to pry around the outer adge to get this up enough to get a tool to get the phillips screw off.then you work arounf the outside rim of the unit... the silver top is screwed inside to the middle of the top... so prying the inside will be bad and shouldnt be done....
I has to use needle nose pliers to turn the phippils screw on the right side to get that side off... as you go around to pry off the silver top. the plastic fasteners that secure the top to the sides will break off. as you get to the other side (left side) the final screw is countersunk into the plastic as opposed to the right side...
you will be able to move the silver top over enough to get a slim phillips into the screw to get a bite to unscrew it out... you can finish with the needle nose pliers...
then... finally. the black outer cover has a sliding set of clips (front left and front right) that hold the cover to the front of the unit... you can then slide the cover off... the switch on the back ... remember... does not have long leads... careful...

Cleaning & descaling your Keurig brewer is an important step to enjoying the best tasting coffee and keeping your brewer in good shape for years.

How often you need to do it depends heavily on how often you use your brewer and how "hard" your local water is ("hard" meaning how many minerals are in it). I try to do this 3-4 times a year.

Open the top of your brewer and remove the K-cup holder. CAUTION: There's are two sharp needles in there. Be careful.
The cup holder is dishwasher safe. You can toss it in the dishwasher if you want. Otherwise a good rinse under warm running water is usually good. There's a sharp needle in here, so be careful.
Turn the cup holder over and ensure these holes at the bottom are free of any obstruction.
The drip-tray is removable. Give it a good clean either by hand or in the dishwasher.
The upper portion of the K-cup holder also has a needle. This needle has three holes in it. Insert a straightened paper clip into each hole to remove any buildup or obstructions.

Here's a close up: There's nothing you can break in here, so use some force and get that paperclip a good inch in and wiggle it around vigorously. Repeat this for the two other holes in the needle.

Use a damp, soft cloth to wipe away any coffee grinds or water stains in and around the cup holder area, and down the front of the brewer.
Be careful of that needle inside when wiping it down.
Put the K-cup holder back in the chamber. Make sure it's the right way around by aligning the arrows at the top of the holder.
Empty the water in the brewer's external reservoir.

Refill the reservoir with undulated white vinegar and replace on your brewer.

Run four large cup brew cycles. DO NOT use a K-cup, just run it empty . Dispose of the hot vinegar after each. This pushes the vinegar through the inside heating tank as well as all the valves inside.

Leave your brewer to stand, powered on for four hours. This allows the vinegar time to break down any build up in the tubes and valves inside the brewer.

Discard any leftover vinegar then refill the reservoir with water only.
Run large cup cycles until "Add Water" is displayed on your brewer's screen. This washes out all traces of vinegar from the insides of the system.
If you notice a vinegar-like smell or taste to the water coming out of your brewer, refill the reservoir with water a second time and run hot water cycles until empty.
