Question about Keurig B30 Mini Coffee Maker

1 Answer

We bought a Kurig Mini at this past Christmas. The machine worked great for about 4 months then the Kcups started exploding in the machine and coffee grounds would go into the brewed cup. Then the machine just quit working all together. What are my options?

Mine has been doing the same thing.  I alkso received one at Chriustmas and it worked great for a few months.  Below is the answer I received from Keurig:

 

It is possible that the needle that penetrates the K-Cup has become clogged.  Please follow these simple steps to clean it:

Turn off the brewer and unplug it.

Reach under the nozzle (where the coffee comes out) and press up on the bottom of the funnel.  The K-Cup holder will pop out.               

Separate the K-Cup holder into two pieces.  The top piece of the K-Cup holder is where the exit needle is located.

Use a paper clip to clear the exit needle by putting the paper clip in the tube on the underside of the holder. Be careful, the exit needle is sharp.

Wash the K-Cup holder with soap and water, rinse thoroughly.  Also make sure the drawer is clean.

Put K-Cup holder back into the drawer, making sure it snaps into place.

Plug the brewer in and turn on.

Run two cleansing brews (brew without a K-Cup) through the machine, and then brew a cup of coffee.

If you still find grinds in your coffee, it would be best for you to talk to a representative to help troubleshoot your problem and discuss your options.  This could be caused by too much pressure sealed inside the K-Cup or the filter alignment may be off.  Please contact our customer service department at 1-866-901-BREW (2739).  Representatives are available 7 days a week from 7 a.m. – 12:00 Midnight EST to assist you.  Please have the serial number of your brewer available for when you call. 

The serial number for the Mini is located on the bottom of the brewer on a silver sticker.

For the Classic, Ultimate and Select, is located on a sticker behind the drip tray. 

For the Elite, Ultra, Special Edition and Platinum it may be located either on the bottom of the brewer on a white sticker or, behind the drip tray.

Keurig B60. Brand New used maybe 4 Kcups. Now it won't fill a full cup setting. Maybe 1/4 cup. You reset, get a little more to run through. At this rate going to be a long time for a full cup. took...


if water does go thru it...try white vinagar/water mixture about 1/2 cup vinagar to full tank water..
run cycles until empty...NO Kcups..then run full tank of clean water.....

K cup explodes


This happened to me with a B30. I called and they had me clean everything out thoroughly. at the very end the tech support lady explained the issue is with the kcups themselves. the ones with bulging tops have extra air in them that causes problems when brewing.

My Keurig is leaving a lot of coffee grounds in the cup


I found that the kcups were under pressure. When I insert the kcup, I press down on the cup to puncture the bottom of the cup then close it. Works fine now.

No spin cycle


It was the water pump. It had become blocked with dirt and ****.Remove water pump, (it takes awhile) and clean the dirt etc inside the pump and refit. It's been working great ever since, 4 months now. I had a go at it myself as it was Christmas time and the part wasn't available and the cost of the new pump was about $160.
