Question about Keurig Elite B40 Coffee Maker
I was just given a used Keurig B40, and the previous owner said that it no longer worked. I descaled it and no water went from the reservoir to the unit and nothing came out (obviously). I tried over and over and finally water pored out with a lot of sediment. After a few cups like this it clogged again. When I run it, the unit knocks and whirs and a few drips go into the cup. Is there any way to release the water from inside the unit or to clean out the mineral residue? If not, do you have any suggestions on how to fix it?
We live in an area with rather mineralized water. and have had regular issues with this. the best solution we ever had to this sort of problem was to simply descale with a vinegar mix until it ran clean and then go with very regular descaling 9 in our case 2 a week, unitl the dog chewed through the cable). I had my B40 for almost 3 years. Good luck!

I would suggest you contact the company directly for advice on where to get that part or possibly they will be able to supply it to you directly.

you will need to give it a vinegar flush..white vinegar..I put about 1/2 cup with a full tank of water..keep running the water until empty..then run thru a full load of clean water..then taste some of the hot water..to see if the taste is gone....
you do not need to use k-cups for this
