Question about Keurig B50 Coffee Maker

1 Answer

Does not pour the proper cup size. Have the default set to the largest size. Sometimes it pours the proper size, other times it pours a smaller size. Also, the sequence of action seems to be off. Sometimes it pours immediately, other times it takes time to replenish the reservoir. Seems inconsistent.

The Keurig is supposed to keep at least 12 OZ of hot watet at the ready...
when you press brew, the pump pushes water into the bottom of the heater... the hot water comes out the top into a clear plastic holder with probes sensing the height of the water... when the proper height is reached, the motors change state... other valves open up and that pur-measured water goes from the plastic holder tank to the arm touching the K-Cup...
Try running vinegar thru the unit and maybe the sensor probes are scaled... otherwise... you may have a intermittent connection and would beed to reseat the low voltage wires from that water height container...
involved taking the unit apart... :(
try the vinegar first.
Seems like internal cables need reseating.....
I posted how to open it... do not do unless its out of warranty... and you have a few hours of time to disassemble it...

It wont brew


Carefully clean the sharp pin that pouches the hole in the top of the k-cups by inserting a toothpick or paperclip into the hole where the water is pushed into the k-cup.You need to descale it by cycling some vinegar and water through it. Pour a couple cups of vinegar and a cup of water in the reservoir push the large cup size, you can reuse the vinegar mix just don't pour any grounds back into the resevoir.Do this several times (you should see noticeable improvement)then run some clean tap water through so your coffee doesn't taste like vinegar. Hope this helps!Justin

HOW DO I CLEAN THIS COFFEE POT


I suggest you use vinegar acid.

You need a solution with half part water and half part vinegar acid.

1) pour 4 cups of water into your coffee machines water tank.

2) pour 4 cups of vinegar acid into your coffee machines water tank.

3) turn on your coffee machine to decalc.

4) refill tank with clean cold water and let it run through ( 2 times)

REMEMBER !!! ALWAYS POUR ACID into WATER !!!! AND NOT THE OPPOSITE !!!
If you pour water into acid it can explode and make terrible damages and cause chemical burns!!!

Hope this will help ypu

I used an air-compressor with a small soft rubber nozzle, and blew out the rubber over-fill port, the peircing needle and the reserviour inlet, and it started working like new. I have done this to two seperate machines - that were both having short-pour options, and it worked like a champ
