I had that bad Keurig taste/smell for the first few months I owned it and almost returned it, but then someone suggested I run vinegar (1/3) and water (2/3) through it as though it was time to clean it and flush with just water for 3 cycles (see instructions)... and it worked!!!

De-scaled by using vinegar as suggested now every cup tastes like vinegar

Keep filling your water reservoir with water and running it through, until it clears up, it might take a few fill ups of your water reservoir to get the vinegar taste out.

My Keurig B70 has begun dispersing various amounts of water no matter what size cup is chosen

you will need to try the vinegar/water cleaning... 1/2 cup white vinegar to full tank until empty..then redo, with clean tank of water....taste water when done, no bad taste
this has to be done on these machines at least once a year.....

How do I clean my B60 Keurig of scale

Empty the water...
start with half distilled water... half white vinegar...
just run it all day... take a break and let the vinegar work... it will be heated up in the main tank... then pushed out to all hoses and sensors etc.etc...

enpty the container... wash it out... fill it with filtered or distilled water and run that until you no longer taste/smell the vinegar...
consider buying a brita pitcher and use that water for your Keurig... I do... and my unit goes for a long long time before it needs a vinegar washing...

P.S. dont use C.L.R. :(
It tastes bad.
