Question about Keurig B50 Coffee Maker

Keurig b100 I have the B100 Keurig machine. When I fill it with water the sensor (blue fill light) continues to flash. This machine is no longer being manufactured, so they will not repair the problem for me. Can you help?

I think that the unit senses its emptiness via an optical device that triggers when the red indicator ball hits the bottom of the tube. It could be that the tube is dirty from deposits (calcium or whatever,) fooling the B100 into thinking the ball is still at the bottom.. Basically you'd have to open up the machine and see whats what, the tubes can be cleaned but if it is a defective sensor you wouldn't be able to get a replacement, but you could probably jury rig a way to defeat the sensor itself.

The units are serviceable if you are handy, but it isn't as simple as replacing a fuse...

Lift the reservoir, then reseat it. This will clear the prime message. If it repeatedly comes back then your machine is dead. If in the year warranty, call Keurig they will ship you a replacement. A common Keurig problem.

Can I hook up a water supply to a Keurig B100 brewer?

The B100 is a pour over unit and the drain is just that.. a drain directly connected to the tank... In order to have plumb feature the machine would need a fill solenoid attached to a float.switch through a circut board of sorts...Hope this helps
