My Keurig B60 had the same issue. The water reservoir has a valve in a nipple on the bottom that slides into a clear plastic fitting within the base of the unit. Water from the reservoir is supposed to pass through the fitting and into the pump, which is also in the base. Over time, hard water deposits can build up on the nipple or the mating fitting (or both) such that a good seal is not made when the reservoir is in place and water slowly leaks out the bottom. To fix this, I removed the five screws on the bottom of the Keurig and then removed the two screws which hold the fitting in place. I gently cleaned both the clear plastic fitting and the nipple in the bottom of the reservoir with white vinegar. After rinsing both with clean water and drying both, I applied a small amount of silicon faucet grease (available at any hardware store) to both parts. I haven't had any more leaks since, although I assume I will have to repeat this operation periodically.

If it leaks overnight, it's the reservoir. If it leaks during a brew cycle (check under the unit with a flashlight, or put a paper towel under it and pull out when the cycle is done), it's likely the gasket on the upper piercing needle in the basket area. Check to see if it's there, surrounding the needle. If it is, try pulling it down a bit. If it is not making contact (a common problem with solofill or my k-cup filling cups), it will leak from any gap present here. If you switch between regular k-cups and the solofill, you may need to repeat this whenever you switch cup type.


Good luck--this fixed my leak on my new B40.

There is a silicon rubber elbow that the water reservoir plugs into. It probably has a spit in it and allowing water to leak out. I've got a B77 with this problem. At one time I saw this part for sale on ebay but it is no longer listed nor will Keurig supply the part. Perhaps there is a sealant that will adhere to this material but I haven't found it yet. Good luck!

There is a solenoid valve inside the machine (actually 2). One of them is leaking as the part is poorly designed. It can drip down on the air pump and also cause the problem that a lot of people have where once you push the brew button, nothing happens!

Why is my keurig 560 leaking water from the base


Most likely the water lines inside your unit are leaking. If you can take the bottom of B60 off and look inside the unit. Usually, the line that comes off the water pump is leaking at the T connector. If not leaking there look for other signs of leaking while the bottom is off. You can call Keurig 800 number to see if your unit is still under warrenty. Hope this helps.

My Keurig Platinum B70 is leaking. When I put the water reservoir on to the coffee maker, water seeps out the bottom where the reservoir sits into...almost like the little valve in the reservoir stays...

Water from the reservoir is supposed to pass through the fitting and into the pump, which is also in the base.

Are you using the my k-cup with the Keurig pre-filled K-cups? If so it won't work. There must be a needle on the top and bottom of the K-cup for this machine to work. The My personal K-cup does not have a needle in the bottom. It's only to be used for filling with your own coffee.
