My Keurig b60 is spitting water into reservoir instead of kcup
I had a similar problem except there was no water going into the K-cup. I fooled around with the machine for awhile but I had no luck. Figuring I had nothing to lose, I broke out a can of air that one uses to clean computer keyboards. I sprayed the air into the nozzle that puts water back into the reservoir and air came out of the water intake hole but not the needle that puts water into the K-cup. This meant that there was a block between the the needle and the reservoir. I plugged the water intake hole with a towel and my fingers then sprayed the air into the same nozzle. All of a sudden, a large blast of water came out of the needle. The machine worked after this. Just be careful not to put your hand in front of the needle because the water might be hot. Also, unplug your machine before doing any tinkering. Hope this might help some people.

Keurig Special Edition B60: How to clean inside:
Hello.. There are a lot of different cleaning methods and solvents to clean the insides of your Keurig coffee machine, however I don't recommend them. After using, you will still dispense remnants of whatever is leftover in your drinks, this includes Vinegar methods.. nobody likes drinking vinegar coffee.
The Dirty Truth Why You Need to Descale
I recommend using a food product that cleans effectively, called Citric Acid.. You can get this at most grocery stores for a reasonable price. You only need a small amount for each cleansing, so whatever amount you get, it will last a very long time.
I recommend the smallest package you can buy at your local store. I bought a large bag on Amazon the first time I found out about this remedy. Now, I have more than enough for a lifetime of uses.
The first time I descaled using Keurig's recommended descaler. One bottle for one use cost $18 at Target/Walmart.. I'm never doing that again.. It says on the bottle to select the highest cup size, so with the Citric Acid I would do the same. use either the rinse/brew button, dispense a couple tanks worth until it comes out clear (my Keurig machine has 5 x 12oz cups worth per tank)..
I need to pack my special edition keurig. It is
12/03/2015: I just talked to the Keurig machine technical support. They said the internal reservoir can not be drained and that the amount of water that exists inside it will eventually evaporate. Tech support says: As long as you drain the attachable reservoir tank, you should be okay.
- I would try to do a cup of hot water and then immediately after dispensing, turn off the machine before it can draw in reserve water
- Make sure you wait at least 30 minutes for the water to cool down inside the machine before trying to remove it or you might get burned from the water coming out of it.
- Unplug the machine before proceeding
- Open the K-cup dispenser
- Turn the Keurig machine upside down at an angle so that the water comes out of the nozzle, where the K-cup sits
- Softly jostle the machine until the water starts to trickle out
- don't get discouraged if not all the water drains out. just do your best and be satisfied with it.
- pack it upright in a box, make sure the machine is properly cushioned on all sides so that it doesn't get damaged if accidentally tilted, bumped, etc
- mark the top of the box "this side up"
How to clean keurig
It might be time to clean your keurig. Fill the water tank with vinegar and run through about 5-6 glasses leaving time in between to let the vinegar clean. After running all of the vinegar through it should be brewing regularly again.
