Keurig K60

Hi All, Keurig has been sitting for awhile, we went to use it this AM , it indicates ready to brew I select the cup size and it clicks twice and then nothing, almost sounds like a pump issue, any thoughts?
PS filters etc.have been cleaned

Keurig are fun to take apart. Lots of neat stuff inside. Surprisingly complex machines.

I suspect the water evaporated away and mineral deposits have stuck a valve or the pump. I have never seen internal parts being sold so I think you are stuck trying to fix what you have. Once you are certain it's dead and have nothing to loose I would open it up (take lots of pictures so you can put it back together). Start following the water's path through the machine and pay special attention to valves and pumps. Some CLR, vinegar or other acid (muriatic) can dissolve mineral deposits without having to take the pumps or valves apart.


I only use distilled water in my office Keurig that will sometimes sit for months without use. When the water evaporates away there are no mineral deposits to seize valves and pumps.

I did take the bottom off and check the pump and it was free but didnít go any further, really sounds like an overload or something that snaps, tried it after I checked the pump and same result, JUNKED, I think I will use distilled water to flush it out at end of season.
