Question about Keurig B60 Coffee Maker

1 Answer

I want to know what to do with my Keurig coffee maker? It does not run at all. The lights went off and I can't get it to work any more. The whole thing is DEAD! The motor sounded funny before it stoped running. We only make coffee once a day in the morning so it didn't get much use. We got it in Sept. as a gift so I don't have the sales slip. I tried it in another wall plug but that didn't change anything. HELP!

Just a comment; most of the coffee maker failures are caused by the premature failure of a thermal fuse that is intended to prevent fire in case the main heater doesn't turn off as it should.

Unfortunately, most of these parts come from China and are very poorly made so the point at which they 'protect' is pretty unpredictable, many of them failing at a much lower temperature than necessary.

The second most common failure is the thermal switch that cycles the main heater element; these are bimetallic switches that grow 'tired' and the point at which they open and close again gets wider apart until it can take an hour for a 12-cup pot to finish brewing.

Both of these parts are normally welded rather than soldered since they are exposed to high heat so the entire heating element is replaced as a unit.

Contact the maker though, via email, and tell them your problem, some are quite cooperative.



PS: > I tried it in another wall plug but that didn't change anything. HELP!


If a breaker or GFI has tripped, it will often affect a whole series of receptacles so always try one in another room.

Keurig B40 prime problem?


That whole system is run with air pressure. You need to check all the valves for deposits and proper operation.

My mr.coffee keurig model VBMC KG5 single cup coffee maker will not run a whole cup during cycle


The Keurig machine operates by pumping air into the glass boiler to drive the hot water through your coffee cartridge. When you have put a new cartridge into the dispenser, you select a size of cup. When you press the go button, you should hear the machine pump water into the boiler to the requested cup size (test by selecting large size to hear the pumping work). Next the machine operates an air pump to force the specific amount of hot water through the cartridge and make the cup of coffee. The problem encountered with these machine is that a small amount of water can drip internally onto the air pump and it will either not operate or work intermittantly. There is a great 'how to fix' video on utube concerning the Keurig-taking apart and fixing.
Honestly, I don't know whether this is your problem, but I do know this happened to a machine I had. You should hear the tiny air pump working when the cup of coffee should be brewing. You can laboriously take apart and replace, and given the price of these units it may be practicle to do the repair. Watch video on utube--its like three or four parts and very instructive. Sorry I don't have the link.

Keurig coffee


1. Power off machine.

2. Using a metal paperclip, insert it into left side of top needle. It must insert at least 1" deep. Insert it into slot on right side and again from back of needle.

3. Remove KCup cradle. Separate bottom from top. In the top section, insert the paperclip up into bottom needle from the bottom upwards. It will not go all the way thru and this is normal.

4. Reassemble KCup cradle and reinsert it back into coffee maker.

5. Power on machine.

6. Brew a cup of water only. There may be coffee grounds in the water and these should eventually clear during the remaining steps. NOTE: A large cup brew cycle should output a full 8 ounces (235cc). Less means there is still a blockage

7. Empty reservoir and fill with undiluted distilled white vinegar. Repeatedly run brewing cycle until Add Water light comes on.

8. Make sure Auto-OFF is NOT set and let last cycle of vinegar remain inside machine for 4 hours.

9. Refill reservoir with fresh water and repeatedly run brewing cycle until the water is clear and odorless.

10. Set Auto-OFF, if preferred.
