Question about Keurig Elite B40 Coffee Maker
All the lights work fine, put in water, put in K-Cup ... "ready" light comes on, press the "Brew" button .... nothing happens.
Could this be the thermal sensor, or something else?
Try this, worked for me:
Just today we've found that at the first water intake (on my B60, that's where the water container plugs into the base) on the base is a little circle valve type thing. That's where the water gets sucked out of the tank. Shine a flashlight into that circle, and you'll see a screen type thing there. It's like the screen in your faucet when you unscrew the tip and there are little rocks and stuff in it? Same principle: there were cotton fibers and other assorted weird stuff clogging that screen. Used a toothpick or a needle and removed all the debris from the screen, and it now works perfectly!

Keurig has a customer service center that you can call. The technicians there will help you with almost any problem you have. That number is 1-866-901-2739. Most problems are caused by blockage in the needles. You have to clean both the one in the k-cup holder and the top lid area. A tooth pick works great for that. Good luck.

You probably have an open check valve, using to strong a vinegar solution for cleaning eats away at the glue holding the check valve together, as a result you are sucking air, take the bottom off, pull out the check valve, apply a little super glue and you are golden, alternatively you could purchase a new check valve. I fixed mine this morning.

Mine had the same problem. Everything looked and worked fine until I pressed the brew button and it would make it's normal sound for about 2 or 3 seconds and then stop, with a few drops of coffee falling into the cup. I took a pin and cleaned out the top pin that pierces the K-cup, and it worked fine again. It must have been clogged. Hope this helps.
