Did anyone ever email you back about finding a heating element for your keurig? I am at a loss as well and would like to fix mine. I now have 2 defective units (Keurig replaced thankfully because it wasn't my fault!) - and I'm assuming either the electronics are fried (even though it was plugged into a new GFI outlet), or it's the heating element. Have googled to try to find others who have fixed there for a few weeks now - have come up with nothing.
Did you ever fix yours?
No.....very disappointing. I guess that's how they make their money. They're not made to last very long. Besides that, they are so EXPENSIVE to begin with. Guess I'll go back to my Mr. Coffee. LOL Glad to know I wasn't the only one in this situation. Poor Kuerig....won't be buying another one.
The unit was "DEFECTED" by the company (understanding there was a fault with the original product). My partner is a Graduate of De Vry Tech's 4 Year Baccalaureate Program. He has thrown up his hands over ever successfully repairing this unit. It has something to do with ENERGIZING the hotplate and/or brew cycle.
It'll make a pretty night light on your kitchen counter.

I am going to tell you two things. First, how to best repair your Keurig. Second, and more importantly, to reassemble your Keurig and take it back to BBB for a free exchange on a new one.
There are two main components that go bad on a Keurig. The air pump motor and the solenoid located directly above the power transformer. These two components will eventually fail on every Keurig ever made. To see why this is and how to repair them go to You Tube and search "Keurig Operation and Repair- Part 6". This will tell you how to repair the unit. If you need more information, watch Part 5 too.
However, there is an easier way to fix your Keurig and that is to return it to Bed, Bath & Beyond for a brand new unit. Returning is much easier that repairing. If you want more information on how to do this send me a quick email and I will send you the information on how to do it. My email is email@example.com. I have helped hundreds of people do this.
I don't know if they sell those replacement parts on their own, but if you contact Customer Service they could have a solution for you. Or, depending on how long you've had the Keurig, you could return it (either to Keurig or the store you purchased it from). Keurig Customer Service number: 866-901-2739 OR email them!
I had the same problem after getting a Keurig model 525C and took it back to Costco, with ants still in the coffee maker. I haven't had this problem with other Keurig coffee makers. Keurig needs to come clean and admit THEY have a problem with at least one of their coffee makers.
Had this same problem. the "not ready" message flashes, unplugging the unit, pushing the power button have not impact ont he message. Keurig tells me this is an indication the heating element has burned out. I had ot call in a warranty claim and get a replacement.
