Question about Keurig B60 Coffee Maker

1 Answer

We purchased our second Keurig coffee maker as our first one stopped working after a period of time. Our new coffee maker is not very old and is now doing the same thing. I've tried descaling as the machine indicated but it is still not putting out the coffee. It appears to be plugged as it will not feed the water into the machine because it's likely still full. I'm becoming extremely frustrated and since my son is getting married Saturday, will have a full house and no way to have coffee. Help please!

The problem is due to the check valve located in the base of the unit just below the reservoir seats itself. However actually this small new pump cannot press hard enough to open the check valve so the water can easily flow. If there is air in the system or slightly scale this make it harder.

I have found out that that the problem occurs only just a few weeks after we use a brand new machine.
So one very good way to solve the problem is to turn the machine on and lift the water reservoir up just a couple of inches and then jam it back in place fast and hard. With this way is like it injects just enough pressure into the system to open the check valve and when the motor pump will run you will realize that immediately water will passing through from reservoir to brewer tank. This procedure has to be done often between cups.

I purchased a keurig 2.0 at Christmas and has stop brewing no coffee or plain water. What do indeed todo?

Call or email Keurig customer service, it is best to call to get an immediate determination on the phone, they have very good warranty. Make sure you jot down any item that occurred before it stopped. such as noises, display items ect. If the unit is determined defective at that time, they will ship a new one out at no charge. They don't repair, but may want you ship parts of the old machine back once you receive a replacement.

Keurig B60 makes coffee at random all by itself

Try plugging it into another outlet, preferably one on a different circuit breaker. If this works call an electrician. I have seen electronic devices do all sorts of strange things when the power is bad.
