My Keurig Will not draw water
My Keurig shows out of water but will not draw water from the reservoir
Black and silver single cup coffee maker with water reservoir on the left hand side. K40/K45.
I had this problem because there was air in the line so the pump couldn't prime. I solved my issue by filling the reservoir about 1/4 full and placing it back on the machine. Then I basically lifted the reservoir up and down rapidly and saw little air bubbles coming up from the place where the water intake is in the bottom. I did this until the air bubbles stopped appearing. It creates some sort of vacuum inside the machine I think and gets the air out of the line so the pump can prime. Anyway, I then filled up the reservoir with water and turned the machine on. It finally sucked water into the internal tank much to my relief. I've read other people have had similar issues after having put their machine in storage while moving. No one tells you how they fix it though. Just thought I would share my fix-it to try in case it can help someone else. Best of luck!
They also make a maintenance tool that actually goes in the brewer like a k cup. It looks like a little bulb inside an orange ring. Fill the bulb with water and place in the Keurig. With the machine unplugged, open and close the lid at least 5 times. My bulb was full of grounds after I did this. Worked like a charm!
I tried everything and couldn't get a full cup of coffee. Vinegar, cleaning the decanter, cleaning the intake spout under the decanter, nothing worked. Couldn't get a full cup of coffee. I use a reusable wire mesh filter cup but couldn't get enough water to go thru it. I also make my own filter cups from basket filters. So I thought maybe it was too much for the water to get through because of the mesh and paper but it always worked in the beginning. So I thought maybe if I poked a small hole thru the bottom of the wire mesh simulating the kcups and the water flowed through with no obstruction. I am environmentally conscious and will not put/add plastic in a landfill if I can avoid it. I just had to think about it for a bit. Now I get a full cup of coffee.
