If your Keurig coffee brewing machine was working but now no longer powers on, there may be a problem with your electrical outlet rather than the brewing device. Troubleshooting the power issue on your Keurig coffee machine requires a combination of basic cable checks to ensure the device is properly plugged in as well as resetting your home's circuit breaker if the problem persists. If the issue is not caused by loose wires or a flipped circuit, contact the Keurig customer service to determine your eligibility for replacing the machine.

Step 1

Push the power cord all the way in to ensure the cable is not loosely inserted in the electrical outlet.

Step 2

Insert the machine's power cable into an alternative grounded outlet. Surge protectors may not provide enough electricity to the Keurig machine, and results in the device not being able to turn on.

Step 3

Push the power switch on the back of the brewing machine. The switch is located on the left side on the back of the brewer. Push the switch back to the "ON" position and wait for the light on the front of the machine to turn green, which indicates it is ready to be used.

Step 4

Go to your house's circuit breaker box and flip the switch that controls the electricity for your kitchen, or whichever room the Keurig machine is located. If there is a trip in your home's power, the circuit switch will flip in the opposite direction it was previously in. A flipped switch will not provide electricity to the outlet until it is manually switched.
