Thank you for this, it saved me from having to purchase a new Keurig. My Keurig was not pushing water out for a cup of coffee. I tried the paperclip in the needle, which didn't work. Thanks again!!!!!

I cant get the little screws off of the vacuum. I broke 3 screwdrivers. Could they be glued?

After you take the white piece of the vaccuum pump off, you will see the black rubber diaphragm just below. DO NOT REMOVE the black rubber diaphragm. It is not necessary to remove this piece, and it will NOT BE POSSIBLE to re-assemble the pump after you remove it. Just clear any obstructions and put the white piece with the tube back on.

I removed the black diaphragm before I realized what it was, and now my Keurig K75 Platinum ($) is heading to the landfill. Hopefully this will prevent somebody else from making that same mistake.

This worked for me. When i took off the white piece 2 of the 3 little rubbery, indented pieces were recessed and one was popped out a bit. I pushed them all in and it seemingly fixed the problem. I ran it about three times so far and it is working properly so hopefully it stays working for a while.
