Question about Keurig B70 Coffee Maker

2 Answers

Brewer leaking My Keurig brewer is leaking, I removed the bottom plate and could see from where it's leaking. How can I remove the plastic top cover to access the interior of the machine so I can change what I hope to be the source of the problem: a plastic hose or o-ring? Thanks a lot for any help. Lyne

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.
Comment Recommended For You 3 640x960.jpg

Open the top of your brewer and remove the K-cup holder. CAUTION: There's are two sharp needles in there. Be careful.
Comment 4 640x960.jpg

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.
Comment 5 640x960.jpg

Turn the cup holder over and ensure these holes at the bottom are free of any obstruction.
Comment 6 640x960.jpg

The drip-tray is removable. Give it a good clean either by hand or in the dishwasher.
Comment 7 640x960.jpg

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.
1 Comment 8 640x960.jpg

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.
1 Comment 9 640x960.jpg

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.
Comment 10 640x960.jpg

Be careful of that needle inside when wiping it down.
Comment 11 640x960.jpg

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.
Comment 12 640x960.jpg

Empty the water in the brewer's external reservoir.
2 Comments 13 640x960.jpg

Refill the reservoir with undulated white vinegar and replace on your brewer.
1 Comment 14 640x960.jpg

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.
2 Comments 15 640x960.jpg

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.
1 Comment 16 640x960.jpg

Discard any leftover vinegar then refill the reservoir with water only.
Comment 17 640x960.jpg

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.
Comment 18

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.

Congratulations!! Your Keurig brewer is now clean and your ready to enjoy full cups of delicious coffee for months to come!

No lights. dead. checked plug

Unplug the brewer. Turn it upside down. You may need to use a small screwdriver to remove small rubber pads that cover screws that hold the bottom cover to the brewer body. Remove those screws. Using a volt-ohm meter, check to see if you have power coming from the power cord to the brewer at the points on the circuit board. IF NOT, REPLACE THE POWER CORD ( cheap fix). If the power cord is working, when you take off the bottom cover and you will find a small circuit board that has very small switches that actuate the brewer. Take that circuit board off, and with a toothbrush and water/soap solution, gently clean the circuit board and then let it dry completely. CHECK the board to see if their are any burnt areas, or any deposits that are corroding connections, and check to see if all connections are unbroken. Fix anything with a small soldering iron that has separated. Let the circuit board dry in the sunlight, and then replace it and the wires connected to it. Try then to plug the cord in and turn the brewer on to see if the lights work then. IF NOT, you will have to replace the circuit board.

I have a puddle of water that is leaving out of the coffee maker from the bottom. (underneath)

Here's what I discovered about my Keurig B60: The water reservoir has a valve in a nipple on the bottom that slides into a clear plastic fitting within the base of the unit. Water from the reservoir is supposed to pass through the fitting and into the pump, which is also in the base. Over time, hard water deposits can build up on the nipple or the mating fitting (or both) such that a good seal is not made when the reservoir is in place and water slowly leaks out the bottom. To fix this, I removed the five screws on the bottom of the Keurig and then removed the two screws which hold the fitting in place. I gently cleaned both the clear plastic fitting and the nipple in the bottom of the reservoir with white vinegar. After rinsing both with clean water and drying both, I applied a small amount of silicon faucet grease (available at any hardware store) to both parts. I haven't had any more leaks since, although I assume I will have to repeat this operation periodically.

I can;t find manual and I want to clean my keurig coffee maker

You may be able to find the User Guide for your Keurig machine here:

Your 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. Full de-scaling insturctions can be found here:

My kreig brewer Model B40 give me only hot water

The seal is too thin. Install a faucet washer on the top needle above the factory seal. Remove the factory seal (slides off the needle). Install the faucet washer and replace the factory seal. My machine leaked all over until I did this. Works Great!

Love my Keurig B60. Bought the B70 with lager cup

You have to remove teh 5 screws from the bottom plate on the unit and they there is a small translucent corrugated hose fastened with a small ty-rep. Remove this hose and simply drain the stainless tank to the sink and replace the hose over the barb, slide the ty-rap back in place and it is EMPTY. Takes ten minutes start to finish. Phillips screwdriver and needlenose pliers are all that is needed.
