Question about Keurig B100 Coffee Maker

1 Answer

Red Light I have a solid red light on the fill indicator and a binking not ready red light, It's about 4 years old, yellow light never flashed, hence I never cleaned it. I know stupid me, I should've but regardless with age I've become more wise and I've learned to respect my appliances more. Should I bother cleaning the check valve or just toss the thing?

    I have the same problem. Keurig said to get rid of the machine and they'll sell another one for a discount. I asked for the name of an affiliated repair person--they said no one repairs Keurig home machines. Based ont his web site I know that it is the temperature sensor probe--the question is---does anyone know how to fix it????

Keurig will tell you to dump it.....but they will be more than happy to sell you a new one. Me? My B100 burned out/just quit working after 1.5 yrs. Keurig offered me a new one (B something or other for 99.00 which which leaked all over the kitchen about 10months into the game. Dead. Complained to Keurig and got a Plat B70 which i had some problems with, but they could NOT help me. Cost 99.00 again since it was 'more expensive' than the 2d one and they said it retailed for 200.00. My B70 Platinum?? Oh. It just sounds like a German Mowzer blasting thru the kitchen. Who needs coffee when this noise wakes you up? (Keurig's only solution is to tell you to toss it out and buy another EXPENSIVE coffee maker form them. I take care of my stuff and delimed and used water that is deionized so i'm not careless. Okay, so recently, I found a used B2003 (the old commercial box-like unit with the spigot on the side). It is having issues with the pump. I called Keurig and their question was: How did you get a 'commercial coffee maker' when they are meant to be used in an office because it's a 'work manchine.' I told them that i was sick of the cheaply made home brewers that only last close to the warranty. Again, they asked why i am using the commerical brewer at home. I asked them if the coffee police would snatch me up and lock me away if i was using this at home (of course, laughing) and they said it wasn't illegal, but that i am not supposed to use it outside of the work environment. I then told them that i work at home. WTF? What are they teaching these customer service folks? I asked for a distributor in the area so that i could contact them; they said there wasn't anyone they would refer me to since i was using a commercial brewer in the home. They also said that it was too old and that they were 'surprised that it lasted so long'. (Folks, the mfg date is 2000!) Um.....no wonder we have issues with our environment. Our EXPENSIVE small appliances **** out right a warranty and nobody wants to repair or get repair parts so we drive out to the Landfill..... I questioned the little plastic KCups and then someone came up with adaptors, etc to use instead of KCups. Yet....Keurig continues to be irresponsible and suggest we toss out relatively new machines that can probably be repaired ...just dumped in the landfill. Keurig does NOT want to be customer oriented....just money oriented. BOO to KEURIG!
My Suggestions? Boycott the Keurig coffee makers. "Keurig means excellence". Bite me!

My Delonghi Magnifica's three red light indicators are solid red. I have unplugged and plugged back in to no avail. Any suggestions?


Which three indicator lights? The ones to the right of the power button? If they are flashing, then your steam knob is open. Turn it clockwise and try again.

The machine is still turning on however the light which indicates when it is ready to make the coffee never changes from red to green. I wondered if it might a problem with the control panel. My machine...


HI I would suspect the thermostat on top of the boiler. it is 2 red wires with a little thermal couple on the end. Could be broken or bad. Goes to the board.

Red de scaling light won't shut off


Removing the red descaling light is simple.
1. Fill reservoir with half vinegar and half water (no need for the special descaling product from Tassimo).
2. Turn on machine.
3. Insert yellow cleaning disc found in back of machine.
4. This is where most people have the their problem...You must hold the start button for 3 to 5 seconds for the descaling program to start. Both green and red light will flash.
5. Once started, use a large cup to catch the output of water.
6. The machine will cycle through the descaling program in about 30 to 45 minutes. Be paitent!!!
7. Once completed, run many cups of plain water through the system to remove the vinegar taste.
8. Red light problem is solved.

Hope this works for you.

I've lost my manual for the Oster coffee maker model 3314-33 and the red "Clean" button keeps flashing after the coffee has brewed. Where can I download a manual so I can figure out how to fix this...


Pot needs cleaning. Fill reservoir with 4 cups of vinegar. Press the SELECT button until the red CLEAN indicator light turns on. Let it perk through. It will take 45-60 minutes. It brews a few cups, stops and then should brew the remainder of the vinegar. When the cycle is complete the light will burn off and the coffeemaker will turn off. Discard vinegar solution and run a couple of pots of clear water through. Hope this helps.

New Saeco Odeo Go has solid red exclamation mark, doesn't budge


You have to 'manually' prime the pump: When the red exclamation mark shows, press the water switch on the right side (the picture of the water drip), then open up the steam nozzle and let the machine pump hot water into a cup until the red light goes out.
