Question about Keurig Special Edition B60 Coffee Maker

1 Answer

My coffee maker is making an unusual "squeegee" sound when heating the water.

It is making an unusual sound that it wasn't making before. I know it makes a gurgling and burping type noise to heat the water, but the last couple days it has changed to a slow squeegee sound. The best way I can describe it is like on Willy Wonka when they get sprayed with whipping cream and go through the cleaner. HELP! Do I take it back for a new one or can it be fixed? I've only had it a couple weeks.

It may be time to descale. Most models will give you a message when it's time to have the mineral deposits cleaned.
Empty water resevoir. Disable auto off. Pour approx 48 oz of undiluted white vinegar into resevoir. PLace large mug on drip plate, run brew cycle, dump contents of mug in sink. DO NOT USE A K-CUP.
Repeat this process until the add water light is indicated.
Let brewer stand for at least 4 hours while still on.
Discard any residual vinegar in the resevoir and rinse thorughly.
AFTER approx 4 hours...fill resevoir with water.
PLace a large mug on the drip plate and water brew cycle. Pour the contents of the mug into the sink.
REPEAT this brew process until the add water light is indicated.
YOU MAY NEED TO REPEAT THIS "RINSE" PROCESS if you notice any residual taste.

SOURCE: keurig coffee maker makes loud noise single cup

The brewer should be de-scaled at least every 3-6 months. Scale is harmless, but if left unattended, it can hinder optimal brewer performance. De-scaling your brewer regularly helps maintain the heating element, removable water reservoir and other parts of the brewer that come in contact with water. Better water quality and water heating means a better cup of coffee, tea, hot cocoa or iced beverage. We recommend de-scaling your brewer at least every 6 months (every 3 months if your water has a high mineral content). The de-scaling process involves using 48 ounces of undiluted white vinegar.

Take 48 oz of white vinegar. place in tank. pretend you are making coffee (Do No Use K Cup). let the water fill you mug. then empty that mug. Do it again until tank is empty. then let sit for 4 hours.
Then fill with fresh water to the top. let that tank of water run thru. towards the end taste the water.
If you taste vinegar..use more clean water, until the taste is ok.

Run two or three reservoirs full of plain water through the machine to rinse out the descaler, which is acidic.

You should descale the machine, as you may have a blockage in the steam tap.
When descaling make sure that the descaled water goes through the steam wand as well as the group. JURA descaling tablets

I have a one cup at a time Keurig. I measure the water and pour in then Kcup coffee. I shut the covers and press brew. The coffee maker starts to heat the water but then will not pump the water through...

I have one too. Had the same problem and needed a new clean Kcup. The oil residue build up wasn't allowing the coffee to pass through. Some models also have internal filters. Bed Bath Beyond has all the replacement parts and lists the units by Model on the part. Hope this helps.

Coffee maker water does not heat

unless you have a real expensive coffee maker, it is cheaper to just replace it at this point. chances are the heating element has burned in two.
