SOURCE: keurig coffee maker won't draw water from the resevoir

I just got mine to work by forcing water into the pump to force it to prime. I took a syringe for a meat injector and built a gasket so it would seal over the water intake. Then I forced several syringes of water into the pump till it finally picked up and caught its prime.

SOURCE: leaking water when using my k cup

Long story short, it will leak from under the screw cap (rarely) and from the rubber ring around the puncture pin. The grounds clog the metal filter and creates pressure that escapes from under that rubber ring. I cut a thin styrofoam plate to fit under the screw cap. It's really snug for the first few times, then it will loosen up. Second is to tighten the seal between the top of the 'my cup' and that rubber seal. I used 2 styrofoam rings that sit between the 'my cup' and the hard plastic it sits on when you fit it in the hole. It bring the cup like 1/8 inch higher to the pin and increases that seal. I made many cups after that and it has never leaked. I'm looking for a good rubber ring to fit around the 'my cup' to replace the rings for the seat.

SOURCE: water leaks out the bottom

There are many possible points that the leak can be.

All points of the water supply from water tank to the pressure pump then to boiler . All this are connected together with plastic or Teflon pipes with easy fit unions secure with clips

You need to disassemble the machine and work it without the side panels of course with extra care since power electrical cables are exposed.

In this way with a very good visual check while the machine is in operation you can identify the leaking point and fix it.

SOURCE: The machine leaks water all over the counter when starting brew

My keurig did the same thing, the rubber grommet around the part that punctures the cup gets grounds on it and prevents a complete seal. Pop of the grommet and clean it and it will be good as new.

Keurig coffee maker model b70

Not to be coy, but the best way to repair this problem is to take your Keurig back to Bed Bath & Beyond and exchange it for a brand new one!

As for your problem, your description was not detailed, but I would guess that the leak you are referring to is not coming out of the reservoir at all, but is actually coming from the bottom of your machine. The reason for this is that there is a solenoid located in the back of the unit that is notorious for leaking over time. The only way to repair it is to completely disassemble the unit and replace it. This solenoid is also responsible for your Keurig to "short-cup" you, meaning your Keurig brews, but you only get a partial cup of coffee. If your unit has not done this yet, it will start shortly.

So back to what I said at the beginning, your best option is to simply return it to BBB for a new one. You do not need a receipt, nor have had purchased it there in the first place. If you are interested in this option (& I highly recommend it), please send me an email at [email protected] And I will send you al the information you need on how to return it for free. If you decide to send me an email to learn about this, please let me know in the email that you were from Fixya.com. If you want to know more about why the Keurig leaks and how to repair it, please search You Tube for my video series call Keurig Operation and Repair. It's long, tedious and extremely boring, but skip around and then send me an email. You will be happy you did. Good luck and IO hope this helps.

Keurig b60 is pumping the water back into the tank instead of the cup as well it is leaking out the bottom of the machine, i have tried cleaning the needles however, not sure what's causing it to do t

Check the water output in the brew head itself. Open the head like you were going to out in a k-cup, and run a small object like a paper clip UP the water output to make sure it's clean. Then remove the K-cup holder and clean the water output line at the bottom the same way.

My Keurig leaks from the bottom, it's a pain.

You may have water in the holder that supports the CUP. It needs to flushed as it has a limited area for maintain the overflow.

Our cuisinart kcup coffee maker is leaking out the top of the machine. When it brews instead of a stream coming out of the pour spout, the machine leaks water all over the main brewing piece (where the k...

Take out the used kcup and GENTLY explore the holder fitting. There should be a sharp point in the bottom that punctures the bottom of the kcup to allow the brew to flow out the spigot and into your cup. There also needs to be a sharp point on the top to punch a vent hole for the water to enter. It they aren't both open, coffee and grounds will spray everywhere. Take it apart and clean thoroughly as well.

Permanent Keurig filter leaks

Are you using the my k-cup with the Keurig pre-filled K-cups? If so it won't work. There must be a needle on the top and bottom of the K-cup for this machine to work. The My personal K-cup does not have a needle in the bottom. It's only to be used for filling with your own coffee.
