Question about Keurig B60 Coffee Maker

1 Answer

Water runs down but is not forced through the coffee. It runs out the sides and into where the cup is waiting for coffee to come out. If there is a pump there, how do you fix it or replace it?

Hello, W/D here.

The water is pumped to the K-cup, and flows from there through the K-cup into your waiting coffee cup. What it sounds like is that your outlet needle is plugged, causing a blowback. The easiest way to clear the blockage is to take an ordinary paper clip, and straighten it into an "L" shape, with about 1" on one side. Use the clip to **** out the needle (caution, sharp!). While you are at it, **** out the upper needle as well. This should free up the system.
Best regards, --W/D--

How do I make coffee in a MICROWAVE COFFEE BREWER

I haven't before encountered a microwave coffee maker but I expect it is similar to one of the established coffee maker designs but constructed of non-metallic materials.

I expect it is a variation on the percolator where water in the lower chamber boils (locally) and in doing so is forced through a tube or a channel into the top chamber where it runs through the coffee grounds back into the lower chamber and the process continues until the water is at a uniform temperature just below boiling point and the process is either halted or stops automatically.

The amount of water will depend on the capacity and coffee makers tend to be sized in how many cups of coffee they will hold and the one cup size is fairly common but so is the six cup size. The amount of coffee will also depend on the capacity and the required strength, the blend and the roast and how coarsely it is ground.

You will need to experiment, probably using full power to force the water to boil fairly violently. I suggest starting with a moderately heaped dessertspoonful per large cup.

I hope this helps, apologies in advance if I got it wrong.

1 Perform the initial setup on the coffee maker. Make sure the coffee maker is not plugged in. Slide the empty funnel into the funnel guides, fill the decanter with cold water, open the lid and pour water from the decanter into the brewer, put the decanter back on the base, then close the lid and wait three minutes for the internal tank to partially fill. Open the lid, fill the decanter with cold water again, and once more pour the water directly into the brewer. Put the decanter back on the base and wait for water to flow out of the funnel and into the decanter. Once it has stopped flowing, pour out any water that is in the decanted and plug in the coffee maker. Press the on switch to turn the coffee maker on and heat up the water in the tank.

2 Ensure the lid is completely closed. If the lid is open, the Bunn coffee maker will not brew coffee.

3 Check the see how much water is in the water tank. The Bunn coffee maker will not begin brewing coffee if less than 20 ounces (4 cups) of water is present in the water reservoir tank.
4 Delime the coffee maker. Unplug the coffee brewer and allow it to cool down. Remove the sprayhead by turning it by hand and set it aside. Insert the flexible deliming tool into the sprayhead tube until all but two inches are showing. You may need to twist and force the tool to go in. Slide the tool in and out several times to loosen lime buildup.
Check the sprayhead for lime buildup. If there are flakes of minerals, they can be removed with a toothpick. Scrub the sprayhead with soap and water. Rinse the sprayhead with water and replace it in the coffee maker. Pour water into the water tank and turn the coffee maker on, allowing water to run through without making any coffee. This will flush any lime fragments through the system. Empty the decanter

All the water is not going through when I make a cup of coffee. It only makes about l/4 of a cup


Keurig B30 would only brew a partial cup and stop. Had to run 3 times to complete brewing.


With the coffee maker unplugged and an empty cup in place, I filled the reservoir with filtered water and with a short length of flexible plastic tubing I blew in to the small hole in the bottom of the reservoir. I did this 4 or 5 times sucking some water in to the tube to force it through the system. When I had finished there were a lot of grounds in the cup and the next time I used the coffee maker it worked perfectly.

I get lots of watered down coffee. It brews 3/4 cup but it is so watered down. We have descaled etc. I want a thick expresso like taste. This is on a large cup setting Help?>

When you run a lot of water through just a little coffee it gets water down. Try making 2 meduim cups instead. When they make espresso its 1 tablespoon to 1 oz of water. Your running 6 oz of water through the same amount of coffee, and its going to be weak. Program you buttons for 2 shots to fill your cup and it will be pretty strong.

When making a cup of coffee, half the water flows back thru the vent resulting in half a cup of coffee. I have de-scaled but that did not fix. Any suggestions?

When the water comes back through the vent, it usually means that the TOP needle may be plugged with coffee grounds.

Unplug the coffee maker.

Lift up on the silver handle, and look inside. You will see a silver needle (similar to the one in the bottom of the K-cup holder). With a round seal surrounding it.

Straighten out a paper clip and run the clip through the center of the needle, and rotate it, then pull the clip out.

Plug the unit back in, and wait until it is ready.

Remove the K-cup holder, and run only water through the unit, as if you are making a cup of coffee.

You will see some grounds in the coffee cup, if the needle was plugged with grounds.

If this doesn't fix it, call customer service, the unit may be bad.

Not brewing a full cup

If you keurig makes small cups or insists that you descale even after you have, your problem is that grounds are being forced up into the waterhole that pushes into the K-cup. The solution to both these problems is to keep a safety pin next to your maker and puncture each K-cup just before you put it into the coffee maker. This keeps the pressure of gasses that builds up in K-cups from fresh coffee from forcing grounds into the water hole. It may take a few days of this plus you may want to use the pin to clean out the upper water hole and run a few clean water brews but this will fix the above mentioned problems for good.

Water overflows

It sounds like your exit needle is clogged. Take a paperclip, unfold it, and run it through the exit needle to get out the grounds that are clogging it.

Directions on how to use my Black and Decker Espresso Mio coffee maker

Be sure the red rubber gasket is in place and clean (ridge side in) and bottom water cup is screwed firmly on to avoid leaking.
1) Fill the bottom water cup with cold water up to the inside lip.
2) Set funnel into bottom water cup
3) Fill coffee basket with expresso grind coffee and level off. (Do not tamp or pack). Make sure it's filled to the top.
4) Place filter onto coffee basket and set coffee basket into funnel
5) Place brewer over bottom water cup and screw firmly into place.
6) Place unit with lid in the center of a microwave oven set on high for 1-1/2 minutes. If boil over occurs, reduce the brew time in 10-second increments until no boil over occurs.
7) Grasp handle to remove unit from microwave when finished brewing.
8) Remove lid and check the level of espresso in the brewer cup. Standard brew is at least 2 oz. If you don't have this level brew, replace lid and microwave on high another 10 seconds. Wait 20-30 seconds for bubbling to stop.
1. Under cold running water, unscrew the bottom water cup. CAUTION: It is normal for some water to be left in the bottom water cup. Both the coffee basket and any water in the bottom water cup will be extremely hot! If you prefer, allow the unit to cool for at least 3 minutes before unscrewing it.
2) To brew additional espresso, rinse Funnel, coffee basket and filter, then repeat brewing steps 1-8 above.
3) Parts are top rack dishwasher-safe -- hand washing filter is recommended.

Water not being forced through the cup

I've seen a few coffeemakers that have a gravity valve on the inlet side of the brew chamber. If this valve has become stuck open, then the hot water may be perking back into the reservoir instead of out to the coffee.
