When I turn my keurig on(power button) the cold water immediately goes through the system into the cup. we have cleaned the unit but no change. Before this it was working perfectly


It could be the heating element inside the machine. Or I could be the water pump. The water pump pushes the water into a chamber where it is heated up before it goes into the cup. If there is a manual near by, read the part under water pump.

Hello - I recommend that you purchase a de-scaling agent, white vinegar works very well. Simply run a cycle with only vinegar (do not dilute). Then run 4 cycles with water only. This should solve your problem.

When I press the button to select a large cup of coffee the water will run for about two seconds then stop but the pump is still running and the third light stays on. Even when I pull the plug and reset it...


I read a couple reviews on this machine, and it could be that your water pump is bad and need to be replaced.
Another problem could be that the bay beneath the coffee cup is full with water and needs to be drained. I have an nespresso brand espresso machine, and when this bay becomes to full with water, the machine stops brewing espresso/coffee. This function is there to prevent water messes.
These are the only possibilities I can think of. Good luck.

The Keurig is heating up the water, yet is does


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.

Keurig after filling cup fails to pull water from reservoir


There is a major design defect with all the newer Keurigs, including the B60 and the B70/B77. My understanding is that Keurig has redesigned the pump mechanism that extracts water from the reservoir and into the brewer (there's a second pump that forces the hot water through the K-cup, and it's not involved). They are now using a small DC motor and impeller pump, which is much quieter (to address complaints in many reviews) but the new design just doesn't work.

It appears that air gets into the system, and the new pump isn't strong enough to "self-prime" in this case. So the pump motor runs and runs without water going through it, and eventually turns itself off so it doesn't burn out (it should usually take only a few seconds to fill the internal tank). Many people think the problem centers around the 'check valve' in the base of the unit, just below where the clear reservoir seats itself: Theory is that the tiny pump can't pull hard enough to open the check valve to let water flow, especially when there's any air in the system.

I've had two B77 units already myself, and both have failed this way within only a few weeks. FWIW, the workaround I discovered is to turn the unit on, and lift up the water-filled reservoir about 1-2" as if you're removing it. Then jam it back down into place, hard and fast. Doing this injects just enough pressure into the system to open the check valve, and if the pump motor is running, you'll hear (and see) it immediately start transferring water from the reservoir to the chamber. You'll often have to do this between each cup you brew, and again when you first turn on the system.

There are hundreds of similar reports all over the Internet about this issue, and apparently no real solutions from Keurig yet (I don't even know if they're acknowledging the problem). Other symptoms include brewing half-filled cups of coffee, as others on this forum have reported.

I suggest everyone call Keurig's customer service and file complaints about this until they come up with a fix. Don't let them tell you it's a problem with your AC power or your hard water (they'll try excuses like tthose first). And until they redesign this, there's not much point in having them ship you a refurbished replacement for your brand-new machine, because chances are it will quickly fail just like your old one.

Unit will not brew when pod is inserted; works w/o pod however.


This may be one of two issues:
1. The pump is malfunctioning which can cause the internal reservior to not completely fill which causes issues during brewing. My unit dribbled random amounts of water instead of brewing for about a week before the pump died completely.
2. The puncture seal isn't in the right position. Open the Keurig fully so you can see the sharp puncture pin. Very Carefully push the black rubber gasket around it all the way up. Then pull it back down about 1/16". Brew a cup, if the problem continues, try sliding the gasket further down by increments of 1/32".

This morning my Keurig sounds like it begins to pull water then stops. I tried to cut it off then back on. Still didn't work.Removed water from reservoir and K-cup and added pure vinegar. Ran machine several times without filter or Kcup by pressing cup selector several times. You must open K-cup holder and close each time. I had to do this about a dozen times before the water began to draw again. Flushed system by filling water reservoir with fresh water, and brewed just plain water until vinegar was gone.Works like brand new.
