Introduction

This guide will demonstrate how to open the top unit of the Keurig K40. It will also demonstrate how to remove and replace the top water pump from a Keurig K40 device.

Parts

No parts required.

Begin by removing the top cover from the device.
  • Begin by removing the top cover from the device.

  • Remove the cover by gently rocking it back and forth with an emphasis on lowering the left side underneath an internal peg.

On our K50 Elite, the lid is held on with 2 screws, and two tabs (which I broke off) near the rear. I think to remove the lid, you first take out the 2 screws, under the cover on the front, and then slide the lid backwards to clear the tabs. I attached the rear of the lid by 2 spots of hot glue where the tabs used to go. I also removed the handle before removing the lid.

Pull on the point where the pipe meets the water pump. The pipe will come loose and the water filter will be free and ready to be replaced.
