Question about Keurig B50 Coffee Maker
Everything looks ok I open door put in k-cup machine displays ready to brew but when I push button nothing happens display resets and I get no coffee pump does not start nothing no noise
I got the coffee maker, used, from my daughter. It was working ok when they stopped using it. It made the first cup just fine. The next few cups required cycling it several times to get the water to run through the coffee pod, even though the pump could be heard. I looked up the cleaning process on line, and proceeded to clean it with white vinegar, as per the instructions. Interestingly, the vinegar went right through, a cup at a time, from the first try, with no necessity for recycling, as did the rinsing cycles.
The next morning nothing worked. The power had flickered off once during the night, and the machine's clock was no longer set. I pushed the menu button, and nothing happens. When I turn the machine on, you can hear the water heat up,but no pump noise. The ready indicator does not come on, but if I lift and then close, the brew sign activates, but it won't actually brew. When I push the button to start brewing, the display changes to saying ready.

Step 1: Make sure you have 48 ounces of white vinegar on hand. You will also need an empty sink and a ceramic mug (do not use a paper cup.)
Step 2: Empty the water in the Water Reservoir b. FILL AND CLEAN
Step 1: Pour the vinegar into the Water Reservoir and fill it to the top edge of the clear viewing area.
Step 2: Place a ceramic cup in the Drip Tray and run a brew cycle. DO NOT USE A K-CUP…just press the Large Cup Button. Pour the contents of the cup into the sink.
Step 3: Repeat the brew process until the Water Reservoir is empty, pouring the contents of the cup into the sink after each cycle. Remember to open and close the lid between each cycle.
Step 4: Now fill reservoir with fresh water and let the Brewer stand for 4 hours while still on.
Step 5: Rinse the Water Reservoir thoroughly and fill with fresh water. c. RINSE Step 1: Ensure the Water Reservoir is filled with fresh water.
Step 2: Place a ceramic cup on the Drip Tray and run a regular brew cycle. Pour the contents of the cup into the sink.
Step 3: Repeat the brew process until the Water Reservoir is empty. Step 4: You may need to perform additional brew cycles if you notice any residual taste.
Regular cleaning (de-scaling) will prolong the life of the appliance. Scale is harmless, but left unattended, it can hinder optimal Brewer performance. De-scaling your Brewer regularly helps maintain the heating element, 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. We recommend de-scaling your Brewer at least every 6 months (every three months if you are using hard water). The descaling process involves using 48 ounces of undiluted white vinegar.
Regular cleaning of the Brewer’s external components is recommended for proper operation. We recommend cleaning with a soapy, damp non-abrasive cloth. The K-Cup holder and funnel, drip plate, drip tray and removable water reservoir (on the Elite B40, Special Edition B60, and Platinum B70) are dishwasher safe. NOTE: the removable lid of the water reservoir is NOT dishwasher safe. The brewer should be descaled every 3-6 months.

Here are some of the most common problems that can cause your drip coffee maker to stop working:
Failure of one of the heat-sensitive switches
(This is The coffee maker's temperature sensors)
Failure of the heating coil:
(This is the The coffee maker heating coil)
Because it's nearly impossible to get replacement parts, you probably have to buy a new coffee maker if one of these problems disables your machine. Now, when you make coffee tomorrow morning, you can do so with a new appreciation for exactly what's happening inside.

The pic is clogged with coffee or the air bladder is bad. Use the tool on the underside of the tray to clean out pic. If that doesn't work, the bladder will be bad.

This may be one of two issues:
1. The pump is malfunctioning which can cause the internal reservior to not completely fill which causes issues during brewing. My unit dribbled random amounts of water instead of brewing for about a week before the pump died completely.
2. The puncture seal isn't in the right position. Open the Keurig fully so you can see the sharp puncture pin. Very Carefully push the black rubber gasket around it all the way up. Then pull it back down about 1/16". Brew a cup, if the problem continues, try sliding the gasket further down by increments of 1/32".

I have this problem with a 4 cup model. 4 cups in, 2 cups out. I cleaned it twice with vinegar (with a filter in place). The first time didn't seem to help, but the second time I got about 2.5 cups out, along with a bunch of old grounds that I think had been sucked into the pump. Ran water through it twice, and now it gets to about 3 cups.
I think the problem is just that the pump is clogged with grounds. If vinegar makes yours worse my guess is that a big piece got dislodged and is now blocking the tube. More vinegar might help.
