coffee grounds into the area where the K Cup is
HI. I have had same problem with my Model B60 refusing to close.
I'm not sure what happened with mine, but I ended up forcing it to close.
DO NOT DO THIS
Check near where the silver handle used to close on the K Cup is attached to the machine. Mine has 2 screws on the underside of the silver-colored handle which were loose. They're located on underside of silver-colored handle which is used to close the machine to brew - very close to where handle attaches to the unit. Look for one screw on each side of silver handle - my machine has screws that required screwdriver bit CRV-T15.
Possibly these or some other screws have become loose not allowing things to line up properly & close completely.
Also, I looked carefully at the photos posted by both schmick & @oldturkey03. I noticed schmick's photo of the needle on the top (center photo) appears to not have a black rubber washer or seal or whatever it is called, which I can see in photo posted by @oldturkey03 (3rd photo from top - 2nd to the last of photos-from top to bottom)
Hope I helped somebody
My Keuring Model B60 is currently spewing coffee grounds into K Cup area & a little into the cup, but still brews.
Not sure, but, I think my problem might be the following: After it refused to close & I forced it to close it brewed but grounds were in cup & in machine. I adjusted the silver-colored handle - screw had loosened. I also removed the black rubber washer or gasket. I wasn't sure which way it went when I replaced the black rubber washer-thing, so I'm hoping it's upside-down????
Anybody have any ideas?????
Would be appreciated. My machine brews fine, isn't slow or not filling the cup. It's just getting the coffee grounds into the area where the K Cup is placed & also some grounds into the brewed coffee...
Thanks in advance
Ist dies eine gute Frage?
It s the recyclable pods. The tops are more flexible and the pressure pushes the top down into a concave shape. When it goes too far down (not all the tops are consistent) the coffee grounds, or whatever else is in the cup, backwashes out the hole in the top made by the needle. Here’s the interesting part: Keurig just told me on the phone that the only recyclable pods they support are their own and if we buy other recyclable k-cups that’s our problem. I had suggested making a better grommet but they said are not interested in supporting other manufacturers of k cups.
