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.

    Since I have not de scaled this machine it is totally clogged up. It is dripping a little white vinegar at a time. As slow as it is despensing it wil take a month of sundays to compleate. Is there a faster way of doing this?

Keurig special edition b60 prime problem? My keurig now has the prime message showing up. I have ran through all of keurigs trouble shooting and none of it has worked. The prime message will go away...


You may want to try this.

Simply trying to clear the lines often will work. And as you will see from the many comments below, by far the most reliable way to get your Keurig brewer working again is the "Slap and Burp" method.

Here is how you do it.

First, unplug the brewer and remove both the water reservoir and drip tray.

Next, hold the brewer upside down over the sink and slap the base a few times. And I mean really slap it.

Now put everything back together and try brewing again. Most of the time this works with a couple of good slaps. If not, try it again.

And don't worry, there are no laws against giving your Keurig a good slapping!

Good luck!

What does prime mean on keurig coffee maker?


Prime means.... pumping. In other words the water in the machine goes through a water pump. That pump, pumps the water from the fresh water container in your machine and pumps it up through the machine, then goes into a heating element that heats the water and then of course flows over the coffee or tea that you put in your machine to give you a nice cup of hot tea or coffee. Priming is in a sense getting the air out or allowing the water to start flowing. If you have a vapor lock or air lock, you need to prime it to kind of help this pump start pulling the water up to the coffee.

Hello, this is common. The pumps on these machines are not real good pressure. Sometimes you have to help it prime for the pump to work.
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.

From what we seen in internet their hundreds about the same problem but we have not see any serious response about it From Keurig's customer service yet.
One other important and related problem frequently reported is the irregulars doses of coffee like HALF-FILLED CUPS of coffee e.t.a

This must be redesign from Keuring factory since there is not much we can do about it to solve once for all even if they will replace your machine with a new one you will have the same problem in few weeks. And definitely this not a problem due your Electricity in your area or due to hard water. However hard water areas will face bigger and more intensive the above problem so one more suggestion is to descaling the machine every week this will help a lot.

If you find the above helpful please remember to vote for it Thanks Mike

My B70 just starts running water through and doesn't stop till it's drained the reservoir...Any clues?


I have taken the beast apart and watched it successfully cycle and fail to cycle.


Warning!!! (DO NOT TRY DIS-ASSEMBLY IT UNLESS YOU KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND RECOGNIZE THE COMPONENTS, You could electrocute yourself and suffer nasty permanent scaring... ouchie!)


I discovered the same as another person claimed a "check value" and/or air leak/lockup. The pump cycles, but can't get water so the machine shuts down to prevent over-heating. (The dreaded "Not Ready").


Solution...


1. Turn off the machine and unplug until it is completely cooled, say 4 hours. (Allows for temperature equalization of the water chamber and the water supply)


2. Completely fill the water reservoir. (The extra water just helps the pump break the air lock).


3. Turn the machine on and wait for the pump to start drawing water.


4. Immediately knock 1-3 times on top of the water reservoir/machine (at the very top of the machine) about as hard as would knocking on a door. (Watch the water level, it should immediately start to drop)


The pitch of the pump should change when the water begins to be drawn into the heating chamber. (you can also hear the water flowing)


The problem is caused by air entering the water supply system. This air provides a "lock" on the system that the pump can't overcome. This can happen due to a number of issues but most issues should be this easy fix.


The machine refills itself 3 times. At Power-on, at beginning of the brew cycle and after the brew cycle.


Watch the machine and any time the pump cycles make sure it draws in water until it shuts down, if it doesn

Continually running/heating


Coffeemakers have two heating elements: a brew element and a keep-warm element. When the water reservoir has run empty, a thermostat switches power from the brew element to the keep-warm element.

The keep-warm element will cause the thermostat to stay in this condition until more water is added [or power is cut off] which will cool it down to switch back.

However, if the keep-warm element has quit working, the thermostat may be reactivating the brew element. With no water in the reservoir, the brew element will heat up till the thermostat trips again, then cool down, etc. This cycle will repeat until power is switched off.
