Question about Keurig Elite B40 Coffee Maker

1 Answer

My Keurig Elite brewer is not brewing. When I turn it on, it makes this weird buzzing noise, but it will not fill with water. None of the other lights are on either. What could be the problem?

Keurig is having a big problem with this. When you turn it on, pick up the reservoir and place it back down. What you are hearing is the unit trying to pull the water through and it won't. It will try for a minute and then shut itself off. So power on, lift and lower water unit and it should be good. CALL KEURIG and tell them about the problem. If enough of us call then maybe they will do something.

Sorry to read about your issue.

The 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.

Take 48 oz of white vinegar. place in tank. pretend you are making coffee (Do No Use K Cup). let the water fill you mug. then empty that mug. Do it again until tank is empty. then let sit for 4 hours.
Then fill with fresh water to the top. let that tank of water run thru. towards the end taste the water.
If you taste vinegar..use more clean water, until the taste is ok.

I tried to help you. Please help me and Vote/Rate this response. Thanks and good luck

I put water in after it was already brewing


This should never happen - when it's low on water it'll light the "fill water" indicator and not brew until it's filled - if you managed to somehow run a brew cycle with no water, then there is something wrong with your brewer.
