Question about Keurig B60 Coffee Maker
My Keurig B60 had the same issue. The water reservoir has a valve in a nipple on the bottom that slides into a clear plastic fitting within the base of the unit. Water from the reservoir is supposed to pass through the fitting and into the pump, which is also in the base. Over time, hard water deposits can build up on the nipple or the mating fitting (or both) such that a good seal is not made when the reservoir is in place and water slowly leaks out the bottom. To fix this, I removed the five screws on the bottom of the Keurig and then removed the two screws which hold the fitting in place. I gently cleaned both the clear plastic fitting and the nipple in the bottom of the reservoir with white vinegar. After rinsing both with clean water and drying both, I applied a small amount of silicon faucet grease (available at any hardware store) to both parts. I haven't had any more leaks since, although I assume I will have to repeat this operation periodically.

If it leaks overnight, it's the reservoir. If it leaks during a brew cycle (check under the unit with a flashlight, or put a paper towel under it and pull out when the cycle is done), it's likely the gasket on the upper piercing needle in the basket area. Check to see if it's there, surrounding the needle. If it is, try pulling it down a bit. If it is not making contact (a common problem with solofill or my k-cup filling cups), it will leak from any gap present here. If you switch between regular k-cups and the solofill, you may need to repeat this whenever you switch cup type.
Good luck--this fixed my leak on my new B40.

There is a silicon rubber elbow that the water reservoir plugs into. It probably has a spit in it and allowing water to leak out. I've got a B77 with this problem. At one time I saw this part for sale on ebay but it is no longer listed nor will Keurig supply the part. Perhaps there is a sealant that will adhere to this material but I haven't found it yet. Good luck!

I too have a water leak for my Keurig. You would think that
Keurig would have an answer to this problem, I am not very good
advertisment for them with water dripping down my counter.

Kuerig had no answer. Said they were sorry for any inconvenience then wanted me to buy a new one from them.
