Here is how to replace the water pump of a Keurig Select Brewer that may have been destined for the garbage but it was quickly saved. This may not be a toy for some but it sure is to me.

Here is a brewer that had mysteriously stopped working so i set out to fix it.

  • Start by removing the bottom cover.

  • These 5 screws hold it on, remove them.

  • This rivet connects the ground rivets to the cover, it will need to be drilled out to fully remove the cover.

  • Do not remove the feet as it is not necessary.

  • View without cover.

  • Here is the water pump.

  • Water tank

  • Inlet, remove the two screws as it is attached to the pump

  • Remove these screws to free the pump. once free *carefully* cut the cable ties on the two hoses so it can be removed

  • Once all the lines are free you will need to un-solder the two wires attached to the pump so that it can be fully removed.

Edit Step 4  ¶ 

  • And there you have it. If you have a new one you can now install it.

  • don't forget to replace those zip ties you cut off

  • If you don't have a new one you can try to fix this one by removing these four screws and removing any blockage.

  • Now Keurig doesn't stock spare parts, so unless you can get your hands on another broken machine you will need to fix the existing motor or source a new one. Radio Shack stocks small motors like this, they won't be exact but with a little modification you should be able to get it working.

To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.

how do you know if its your water pump not working? when I turn on my keurig, and the not ready sign is on, the water starts running out of the top like it has a K cup in it but it does not. It just needs the water to fill inside to be in the ready state. A couple days ago I was able to brew a cup and now it wont work.. HELP!

Your going to need to be a little more specific. Explain it in detail and I'll have a better idea of what's going on.

Hi Dan.. Happy New Year.

Would you know if this is the only motor in the unit?

I've removed it but would like to test it before I replace it to make sure it is defective.

Any suggestions on how to best test?


My Keurig does work, but it makes a ton of noise like vibrating until the brewing begins. Could this the same culprit?
