My Keurig won't brew!!


I have a keurig b60 ultimate and the "not ready" message wont go away. I can not make a cup and it wont let me do anything other than look through the menu. There is water in the tank and everything seems to be in the right place. This is my second machine so I know how to work it yet it is not working. What can I do to fix this?!


If you can’t fix this, simply call Keurig customer service. They are a good group and unless they find an easy fix for you, will likely replace the machine.

You can call them toll-free at 888-879-4627.

Broken Keurig. Not happy
by: Rita

Have a one year old Keurig and it won't do anything this machine was very costly and it's very disappointing to have it break when I barely use it except for holidays. I live on Social Security and I can't afford a new one.
I'm sorry to say that the Keurig is not a very good product.

I know you probably don't care but, I feel better just letting you know that my Keurig is broken after using it maybe 25 times.
Thank you,
Rita Hall

PS Merry Christmas

Editor's Note: Rita, we do care. ; ) Have you tried the "slap and burp" trick?

Garbage 2.0
by: Anonymous

I am on my second 2.0. First one broke after a few days. Some issue with heating water. Kerrigan said it was defective & sent me a new one. I've had this new one about a month & it is a nightmare. It is constantly clogged despite cleaning it after every use. I clean using that orange water thing & running the hot water through with no Kcup, but every morning it so t brew again. I am ready to throw it out & get something else. I had an older, cheaper one that just needed an occasional descale. So much for what I thought was an upgrade. It's a down grade & expensive mistake.

2.0 Carafe Problems UPDATE
by: Mike from Frankfort

Hello, I have good news, of sorts, regarding my K550 2.0 brewer. We have found that by leaving the default setting at 3-4 cups whenever brewing a carafe, the device reliably fills the pot to the same point nearly every time (about 2 inches below the rim). We no longer attempt to brew a full pot (4-5 cups). Of course, the brewer ought to allow you to select the number of cups that you want, but as I have said earlier, this behavior demonstrates that Keurig has a firmware problem that they need to address. The only way to "fix" this problem for existing brewers will be to replace them with a new unit once the firmware problem has been solved. So, if you follow the steps I described in an earlier posting, but without changing the settings for the desired number of cups, you should get a reasonable amount of coffee in your carafe every time. Good luck!

Stuck on preheat
by: Anonymous

Just had the same problem as many others. Keurig 2.0 stuck on preheating and wouldn't brew. Tried the turning upside down and giving it a whack. It fixed the problem! Do I have to do this every morning to get a cup of coffee? LOL

Won't brew the carafe!
by: Kristen

We bought the 2.0 in August and have had troubles with the carafe actually brewing the entire carafe. I called customer service yesterday and she told me to shut the lid harder after I put the pod in. She did also send me some a pack of free k-cups for my troubles so I'm not complaining about the customer service :) But sure enough, I tried again this morning for the carafe and only got about 12 oz. Had to redo it 3 more times just to fill the carafe. My husband brewed his carafe a couple hours later and it did the same thing to him again. At least with the old Keurig we could reuse the Kcups to fit a travel mug. Now this 2.0 punctures a giant hole in the foil top and grounds drip into the mug. So done with the POS coffeemaker!

Power button only
by: Rick if San Jose

Started having problems with the touch screen this morning on my Keurig 2.0, wouldn't respond to any touching. Unplugged it, and let it sit all day. The machine is only 10 months old. Plugged it back in this afternoon, hoping to reset the computer, but couldn't get anything more than the power button in the lower right hand corner, which still didn't respond. I called Customer Service, talked to Kayla. Nothing to troubleshoot, so she is sending me a brand new machine! Went out into the garage and dusted off the old Mr. Coffee for tomorrow morning...good thing my wife hadn't thrown it out...

Keurig stuck on preheating
by: Anonymous

First my almost new 2.0 wouldn't brew, I changed the filter and got one cup to brew very slowly then it was stuck on preheating. Unplugged the unit, turned it upside down and smacked it a couple of times and all is now fine!

Blank touch screen
by: Anonymous

My Keurig 2.0 is getting a white touch screen. It is less than 1 year old. If I unplug it and plug it back in again, I can fix it, but it is happening more and more often. Now, I have to unplug and plug it back in several times to get it to work.

On clogged machines, the best advice I have is don't ever leave a k-cup in the machine after brewing. The water flowing back into the machine sucks up coffee grounds and you will have to do the paperclip trick. Also, every now and then, brew several cups of just hot water.

Sequence is important!
by: Mike from Frankfort


Over the weekend I reviewed the instruction manual one more time and decided to try something .. to be very precise about following the steps in the exact sequence described by the manual.

I discovered that my 2.0 now works (at least five carafes so far) when you do the following:

1. Refill the reservoir to the FULL mark.
2. Insert carafe into slot in base of brewer.
3. Position the carafe so that it is perfectly aligned and fully inserted.
4. Open handle and insert carafe pod.
5. Close handle and select desired volume (2-3, 3-4 or 4-5 cups). Make sure the setting doesn't change to another value. The touch screen is way too sensitive!
6. Press the blinking button to begin brewing.
7. Do NOT move carafe during these steps.
8. Do NOT try to adjust the carafe position.
9. The brewer should give you the desired number of cups.

I think that I may have sometimes adjusted the carafe after pushing the brew button in the past, and I believe this is what was messing up the results.

PS I had trouble posting this message yesterday. Since then I have had the same problems again this morning. Multiple times it brewed only one cup into the carafe. I don't know what to say anymore! These brewers are just totally undependable!

Let me know if "the procedure" works OK for you.

Brewing with Carafe
by: Anonymous

Bought the 2.0 for the carafe option. Used the four pods that came with the Keurig. Not once did it fill the carafe. Only about a cup. Phoned Keurig, they said it was faulty pods.Tried another pod from a new box, same result. Returned the Keurig to Costco, got a new one. First try on the carafe-only filled about 1 cup!!!

New 2.0 K550 still doesn't produce full carafe
by: Mike from Frankfort IL

I bought my wife a K550 for Christmas last year. It would only produce the correct amount of coffee about one in four attempts (we always use the 4-5 setting). Two weeks ago I was thoroughly fed up with it so I called Customer Service again. They were very courteous and sent out a brand new K500 (same unit without carafe and accessories). We have now used it a dozen times and even this new unit malfunctions in the same way. This morning I selected 3-4 cups and it brewed 2-3, so I had to re-run it at the 2-3 setting again (through the same carafe pack) to get a "full" carafe (what appears to be about 5 cups). We always use filtered water and perform the maintenance on the brewer but it doesn't seem to make any difference. I think they have a firmware/control problem and they don't realize it.

Another Fix for a Non-Brewing K45
by: Alan in Idaho

I really appreciated all the great comments and tips on this site, but I didn't see the one that finally worked. I have a K45 and just went through a Vinegar descaling. During the process and afterwards, the machine just made a loud pumping noise but would not pump water. Solution--I had moved the water tank and the little valve on the bottom, under the filter (which I just removed and threw away), had apparently stuck shut so no water would get to the pump. I pushed the valve open and closed a few times and made sure the tank was firmly in place--and now I am making coffee with the best of them. Following all the tips on this site really helped me get the solution that ended up fixing the problem. Thanks to all!!

Switch ineffective
by: Anonymous

I turned mine upside down in the sink and smacked the botton. After that, even the switch wouldn't work. As soon as you plugged it in it was ON and saying NOT READY. Wouldn't respond to anything. Then, I held down all 3 buttons while plugging in. Wow! it came back on like it never had a problem. Switch works now and everything! I haven't had coffee in 2 days - Thanks so much!!

2nd replacement now not working
by: Anonymous

I bought my first Keurig last Sept. After about two months use, I awoke one morning to water all over the counter and floor. I contacted Keurig and they sent me a replacement which was a 2.0. I did not even open the box for months afraid this one would not work. Finally in April 2015 I opened the box and started using the replacement Keurig. However, now this one is having a problem. I am the only coffee drinker in my family, so not high usuage. The brewer drips water a little at time and then stops. I have cleaned it. I think I am done with Keurig, too expensive and not made well at all. Keurig! If you are going to charge 100 plus for your brewers make them QUALITY, not junk! It is back to my reliable Mr. Coffee that is five years old and still going strong. Glad I kept it.

K40 machine will not pump

I called customer service. They reminded me to clean the two holes in the poky-thing that is up in the mechanism and punches the top of the KCup when it is lowered.

Not Ready Message
by: Anonymous

THANK YOU!! My B60 was acting up (brewing small or 1/3 cup) for a week or so. It finally went dead OR so I thought. I held down all 3 brew sized buttons and pressed the menu button quickly - like you said - the screen went blank and I unplugged - replugged in and the "ADD WATER" message came up. NICE QUICK FIX! Now I have to find the prime directions because that's what it's saying now.

Keurig Has Great Customer Service
by: Mitchell

Well, I have to say, I have had problems with my 2.0 K300 brewer that started two months after I bought it in late January of 2015. I had the white screen, garbled screen, even upside down screen. This past week I had two days in a row of white and garbled screen so I called Keurig during my lunch hour and talked with Vickie. She was very helpful, understood my situation, and sent me a brand new machine! I talked with her on Friday and low and behold it was delivered today! I didn't realize it would ship from Tennessee, I live in North Carolina.
So, I have to say, even though I haven't been really pleased with my machine, customer service is very good at Keurig.
If you are having problems and your machine is still under the 1 year warranty, please contact them, they will be glad to help.

Sep 16, 2015
by: Terri

I did everything I was told and read and it would work for a few cups and then stop again. I was getting ready to put it in the trash. During the "brewing", all the water was going back into the reservoir through the vent and not in my coffee cup. I finally came across this "burping" method and wa la! it is working again. We will see for how long. I am a skeptic at this point. Thank you for the information!

K40 Wont brew unless I re-activate the Brew Buttons EVERY time
by: Anonymous

The only way my K40 will brew anything is if I "re-activate the Brew Buttons by lifting and lowering the handle" every single time I want a cup. Once I do this the 3 blue lit buttons flash and I am able to choose which cup I want. Is this normal? I am glad I got this as a gift. If I had bought this myself I would be getting a refund. So much easier to just brew a pot the old fashion way. Im also glad I haven't thrown out my old fashion coffee pot!

Hamilton Beach "The Scoop" single cup brewer
by: Marty Walker

I just want to say that after watching the Coffee Detective's recent video demonstration of the Hamilton Beach "Scoop," I enthusiastically ordered one. Unfortunately, now that I have it and have had a chance to brew a few cups of coffee with it, I find the quality of the its brewed coffee to be poor. Granted that I regularly use the Bonavita 8-cup drip brewer, so I suppose that my standard is possibly too high. But the Scoop doesn't filter the brewed coffee well. The coffee it makes has a "chalky" quality, and the last swallow is mixed with the sludge it leaves in the bottom of the cup. I wish I could return it, but, alas, I've already unpacked and used it.

Editor's Note: Marty, sorry to hear that. We also use the Bonavita as our principal brewer. But so far I haven't had a problem with the quality of coffee from the "Scoop". As good as the Bonavita? No. Good enough for my mid-morning cup of coffee? I'm happy so far.

Am I the only person that thinks having to clean my keurig 2.0 with a paper clip every 2 months is ok? I decided to upgrade from my previous keurig and now I am constantly having problems with coffee grounds clogging the needle? I never had that problem, and when I call keurig and ask to speak to a supervisor, no one is ever I and someone will call me back within 24 to 48 hours. I just want to return the machine and go back to my original machine.

Throw that Keurig away!
by: Anonymous

I have had one unit every year for the past 3 years. They malfunction right after the warranty expires and I am positive they design them that way. After around 7 months the water pump starts growling and then stops pumping all together. I have tried every cleaning product ever invented or thought of to no avail.

My best suggestion is to stop buying these junk products which will send them the message these folks make inferior products and we the customers are tired of paying top dollar for junk.

The best coffee maker is a Bunn. The water stays hot and makes perfect coffee for years with the periodic cleaning as we all know they need, unless of course you have a great water filter.

I hope this helps someone who is considering purchasing one of these coffee makers. Save your money by purchasing a good machine and do your research. Enjoy your coffee and be glad you read a review that is really the truth!

Keurig 2.0 power button help
by: Anonymous

I got the 2.0 as a replacement for my premium one and now the power button will not work to shut off the machine after brewing but I works no problem turning the machine on. It brews fine. Just trying to see if anyone else has had this issue with it.

I had the 'Not Ready' issue.
I did what everyone here suggested:
1. unplug the k60
2. take off the water reservoir
3. take it to the sink
4. turn it upside down
5. whack it
6. put everything back on
7. plug it in
and it works!

sequence of events!!
by: mike r

I just got a keurig, and was only able to brew ONe cup after the initial clean .. my wife couldn't get it to work, and it was purchased for her to use!! I didn't think it was defective .. but .. I tried the slap the bottom thing, still wouldn't brew! Then I went back and tried it again .. that's when I asked her if she'd put the pod in before she turned the unit on. She had. THAT was the problem.

The sequence is supposed to go like THIS:

1. Turn the machine on (I don't think leaving it on is necessary, it heats up faster than our old electric kettle!), and wait until it says READY TO BREW.
2. Lift the handle and open the pod lid.
3. THEN put the pod in and close the lid.
4. The lights flashed as they SHOULD HAVE!

keurig coffemaker
by: Anonymous

Well, add me to the list--I have had this piece of crap for only 19 months. I have descaled and I ran vinegar through it and nothing. I am totally disappointed with this coffeemaker. I will never purchase another Keurig or anything related to this company.
