Question about Keurig B70 Coffee Maker

3 Answers

The Keurig is not dispensing any water when I hit the brew button. We have always been descaling the unit since we received this second keurig machine. Please help in solving the Keurig problems with this B70 Keurig machine.

The air pump in the machine might be locked up. if it is you will have to take the machine apart, not fun, and locate the air pump behind the water tank. take the pump apart and try to turn the pump manually until it moves freely. good luck

Unplug it, remove the water tank. Turn the unit upside down and "spank" it. Just slap it a few times. It worked for me!

    Also worked for me, strangely enough. Air in the pump or something, I guess. Wouldn't think it'd cause the whole unit to completely stop brewing and "die", but hey.1. Unplug 2. Remove resevoir 3. Open lid 4. Turn Keurig upside down 5. Shake and firmly tap on top (bottom of unit) for a few seconds, "burp" 6. Put back together, run, test 7. Repeat if not yet fixed (and/or try paperclip needle fix).

My Keurig only brews a part cup


Most likely you need to change the filter and descale it as well.

I use a CleanCup once a month:
https://www.amazon.com/CleanCup-Single-Machine-Cleaning-Capsules/dp/B00E0QAS34/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1480095410&sr=8-1&keywords=keurig+cleaner+cup

I change the filter once every 3 months:
http://www.keurig.com/Accessories/6-Pack-Keurig%C2%AE-Water-Filter-Cartridge-Refills/p/Water-Filter-Cartridges

And I descale it every time I change the filter using this:
http://www.keurig.com/Accessories/Keurig%C2%AE-Descaling-Solution/p/Keurig-Descaling-Solution

Otherwise, the tubing is going to get clogged up in your machine and produce smaller and smaller cups of coffee, not to mention, when you keep your machine clean, your coffee will always taste its best!

Hope this helps!

Keurig B150 - continuous water dispensing


Their appears to be a scale build up inside the valve that dispenses the water when demanded. This is an electrical solenoid much like in fridge water dispensers but smaller. The scale is not letting the valve close completely after dispense. On a regular brewer running vinegar thru the machine a couple of cycles will usually dislodge the obstruction in the valve. If you can manually add water to the brewer, you should add the vinegar instead to clean the valve. Otherwise you may have to disassemble locate the valve and soak in descaler, or vinegar.

My keurig says I need to descale.How?


Descaling depends the size of the reservoir. I see the B60 but not the B66 at the Keurig site. The two units are apparently the same from searching the support side of the Keurig site: http://www.keurig.com .

For the Mini coffee makers, you use 20 oz of vinegar (2 10 oz cycles). For the larger Keurig units, it takes 48 oz of vinegar.

In either case, fill the reservoir with vinegar and put a large ceramic (12 oz mug for the mini unit) mug on the drip tray. Do not add a K-cup. For the B60 (and probably the B66), press the Brew button. Discard the vinegar after the cycle. Repeat the brew process until Add Water is indicated. Discard the vinegar each time. Then wait 4 hours with the unit on. Discard the remaining vinegar and rinse the reservoir. Fill the reservoir with 48 oz of water and brew several cups without a K-cup until the "Add water" message appears. Discard the water in the mug each time. Repeat the vinegar cleaning if De-scale still appears in the LCD. Run more water without the K-cup if you notice a remaining taste in the coffee after the rinse procedure.

For the mini, fill the reservoir with 10 oz of water, lift the Brewer handle and lower it after 5 seconds with no K-cup in the unit. Press the Brew button. Discard the vinegar after the cycle. After the first cycle, pour the other 10 oz of vinegar into the Cold Water Reservoir. Lift the handle and lower it after 5 seconds. Press the Brew button and wait until the light becomes steady. When vinegar starts to be dispensed, power off the unit. Wait 30 minutes. Then power on the unit and lift and lower the handle again. Then discard the vinegar after the cycle. Next run 4 rinse brew cycles with 10 oz of water each time. Discard the water each time. The unit should be ready to brew with a K-cup after the 4 rinse cycles.

I hope this helps.

Have you descaled the brewer? The internal tank builds up mineral deposits from the water and that causes the short cupping you are describing. You should be descaling about once every 3 months or so. The instructions are in your manual.

Our Keurig only dispenses a partial cup of coffee. We descaled as recommended and did the paperclip cleaning of the need,es and no improvement. When we press brew, it draws an appropriate amount of water...


Keurig coffee maker dispenses only part of a cup (about 5 ounces) after brewng one cup. Running a second clear cup (w/o K-cup) shows coffee grounds in cup of clear water. the maker will then brew a full cup of coffee. It appears that the top pin is too long and goes into the coffee after it punches through the top of the K-cup. Some of the gorunds appear to get stuck in the top pin.
