Question about Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines
Your b60 may need to be descaled. There might be scale built up on the water level probes in you machine. I have listed the directions below:
Brewer De-Scaling Instructions
Brewer Model: Elite B40 ' Classic B44
Special Edition B60 ' Platinum B70
To begin, you will need the following:
• 48 ounces of undiluted white vinegar
• Large ceramic mug (do not use a paper cup)
• Access to an empty sink
Empty the water in the Water Reservoir.
Disable "Auto Off features."
FILL AND CLEAN
Pour approximately 48 ounces of the vinegar
into the Water Reservoir.
Place a large mug on the Drip Tray Plate and run a brew cycle.
DO NOT USE A K-CUP
, just press the BREW Button. Pour the contents of
the large mug into the sink.
Repeat the brew process without a K-Cup until"ADD WATER"
Now let the Brewer stand for at least 4 hours while still on.
Discard any residual vinegar and rinse the
Water Reservoir thoroughly.
Ensure the Water Reservoir is filled with fresh water.
Place a large mug on the Drip Tray Plate and
water brew cycle. Pour the contents of the
large mug into the sink.
Repeat brew process until "ADD WATER is indicated.
You may need to perform additional water brew
cycles if you notice any residual taste.
If "DE-SCALE" is still displayed after
completing the procedure, repeat the
descaling procedure above.

I assume your coffe maker used to produce more coffee for each use. Roughly 6 ounces per large cup, and now is only making 3 oz. cups.
If your coffee maker is sputtering and not able to "suck" enough water to fill your cups of coffee it is most likely due to cavitation caused in the little pump due to a stoppage, which is most likely lime or scale buildup somewhere in the pump line.
To fix it, don't take your coffee maker apart. Get a bottle of distilled white vinegar, and pour it straight into the empty water resevoir. Press brew with no coffee pod so you are just running the vinegar through the system. Pour the vinegar out of the cup and back into the resevoir. Add some ice to cool it off. Repeat about 10 times. This should clear out the toughest lime scale clog.
After you notice the cups are filling full of water, Replace the vinegar with fresh water. Run about 5 or 6 cups of fresh water through the system to get rid of the vinegar.

It's a percolator. Use about 1 heaping teaspoon of coffee per cup. Each coffee pot is different. You will have to adjust the amount of coffee for what you like.

Having dismantled and inspected several of this "strange machines" my conclusion is the following:
There is an oscillating-piston pump inside with in- and outlet valve.
It is energized by a microprocessor controlled circuit for a working time depending on the button selected (1 or 2 cups). The pressure and flow are nearly constant for a perfect working pump.
The pod holder restricts the thruput by its central hole. (E.g. you get now an extra pod-holder with a very small hole for expresso type)
So if you don't get enough coffee it may be that
1) the duty-cycle (timing) of the pump has changed.(not often occurring) no repair, you have to undergo electronic and programming work
2) the pump lost efficiency (cylinder of the pump clogged, piston not working with complete stroke, spring force fadening or just one of the 2 valves leaking) ca be "repaired" after dismantling machine ,extracting pump and taking it apart, success not garanteed - grinding valves is already time spending
so my principle before starting this work is to run the machine without the coffee pod to check the water output, use a new holder with clean central hole, if this works it will be nr.
3) the central hole of the holder is clogged, may be not by limestone, but dried coffee extract (grease) clean with needle or even better with micro-drill

Faulty check valve inside the tubing at the bottom of the unit. This is the tubing conveying water from the outlet of the tank into the heater coil prior to going into the coffe basket.
I have the same problem but cannot find replacement check valve.
