Comment:
The engineers who designed this coffee maker must own shares in landfills, and the mfr. who sells it doesn't care much about consumers beyond the initial sale. It should be a simple repair to replace the water pump. It isn't. In fact, Keurig does not care about repairing any of their pod coffee makers because they sell no parts and service nothing, and this is too much a complicated Rube Goldberg affair not to fail soon.
