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
