    • Check to make sure there is water in the Hot Water Tank.• Place a cup on the drip tray plate.• Check to be sure you are not using a clear, glass mug. Cup sensorwill not "read" the glass mug and the "Place Mug" light will flash.

Water gets hot, enters the brew cycle. There is a humming noise but no water comes out

Could be a clog. Open the brew head a insert something small (like a paper clip) into the water output shaft. Swirl it around to break up any deposits there and then run again (without a k-cup). If water comes out but not correctly, repeat cleaning. Also, check to see if hot water is being deposited back into the tank. This will indicate a clog in the output line (line or, more likely, the head). If cleaning the head does not work, then reset the machine by unplugging and plugging back in.

Keurig Coffee Brewer not making a full cup of Coffee

1 Answer

All the water is not going through when I make a cup of coffee. It only makes about l/4 of a cup


Keurig B30 would only brew a partial cup and stop. Had to run 3 times to complete brewing.


With the coffee maker unplugged and an empty cup in place, I filled the reservoir with filtered water and with a short length of flexible plastic tubing I blew in to the small hole in the bottom of the reservoir. I did this 4 or 5 times sucking some water in to the tube to force it through the system. When I had finished there were a lot of grounds in the cup and the next time I used the coffee maker it worked perfectly.

I have a keurig b30 and has been working great but now it will not recognize any of my cups so the flashing blue light will not come on to start brewing? none of them are clear and have all worked in the...

I haven't solved the problem, but I continue to disassemble my K30. Most likely points of failure for the blue start light not coming on appear to be a sensor to detect the cup is in place (two small holes on the left/right front edge of the cup holder) or a sensor in the resovoir lid where the blue pin presses on a pressure switch. I did find that the red wire to this switch gets caught in the lid hinge and may be damaged. I will post more if I finally discover the root cause but may just go to Bed Bath & Beyond and buy the resovoir model with a 2 year warranty. Lesson learned. Cheap switches and mechanical devices.

Keurig Mini Wont Brew Water won't come out

Had that happen just this morning with my mini-keurig, the needle was horribly clogged. Found a solution on another forum that said to stick a straw over the needle that punctures the cup and blow really hard, then suck really hard and it pulled the debris right out! Then do a cleaning cycle (water&vinegar) to clean out any buildup.

If you let me know what color your drip b30 mini is I may have a drip plate for you!

My Email:

Lets do a quick check on how to brew with this unit;

1 turn power on
2 add water
3 place mug under spout (do not use a clear coffee cup because sensors will not detect a cup)
4 push button
5 wait 3 minutes
6 enjoy your coffee hopefully

Hope this helps you, if you need anything else just email me with the address above.

Keurig b30 won't brew

1. Power off machine.

2. Using a metal paperclip, insert it into left side of top needle. It must insert at least 1" deep. Insert it into slot on right side and again from back of needle.

3. Remove KCup cradle. Separate bottom from top. In the top section, insert the paperclip up into bottom needle from the bottom upwards. It will not go all the way thru and this is normal.

4. Reassemble KCup cradle and reinsert it back into coffee maker.

5. Power on machine.

6. Brew a cup of water only. There may be coffee grounds in the water and these should eventually clear during the remaining steps. NOTE: A large cup brew cycle should output a full 8 ounces (235cc). Less means there is still a blockage

7. Empty reservoir and fill with undiluted distilled white vinegar. Repeatedly run brewing cycle until Add Water light comes on.

8. Make sure Auto-OFF is NOT set and let last cycle of vinegar remain inside machine for 4 hours.

9. Refill reservoir with fresh water and repeatedly run brewing cycle until the water is clear and odorless.

10. Set Auto-OFF, if preferred.
