Question about Keurig B30 Mini Coffee Maker

Keurig Mini Plus constantly overflowing

My Keurig Mini plus is always asking me to add more water even when I've filled the reservoir up to the 10 oz level. It over flows every time and I'm not sure what to do. Thank you for any help you may have.

It's possible that it needs a cleaning... there may be a residue in the lines somewhere or a buildup... look in your manual to see how often they recommended cleaning it... it's also possible that the pump may be going if it is an older model... I would start with cleaning it according to your manual's instructions and then go from there. As a last resort, maybe you could contact the manufacturer if a cleaning doesn't help.

My K10 MINI Plus keeps shutting off by itself


The shut down may come from a safety standpoint, whereby if a heater gets too hot, lines get plugged, or chambers are not filled with water as necessary; the unit could shut down accordingly. Try to clean the ports/lines/ and cup holder. Fill water to line (Not Over the line) and descale to clean the interior chamber.

Cant get my keurig b31 mini plus to use water it just sits there


It may be time to descale. Most models will give you a message when it's time to have the mineral deposits cleaned.
HERES HOW TO DO THAT...
Empty water resevoir. Disable auto off. Pour approx 48 oz of undiluted white vinegar into resevoir. PLace large mug on drip plate, run brew cycle, dump contents of mug in sink. DO NOT USE A K-CUP.
Repeat this process until the add water light is indicated.
Let brewer stand for at least 4 hours while still on.
Discard any residual vinegar in the resevoir and rinse thorughly.
AFTER approx 4 hours...fill resevoir with water.
RINSE:
PLace a large mug on the drip plate and water brew cycle. Pour the contents of the mug into the sink.
REPEAT this brew process until the add water light is indicated.
YOU MAY NEED TO REPEAT THIS "RINSE" PROCESS if you notice any residual taste.

Keurig brewers are great little machines but from time to time they all need a little TLC. The brewers have countless components that must all work together to deliver the perfect cup. Most common problems with these machines are caused by calcium/lime buildup. If you've tried the manufacture's suggested vinegar descalation methods to no avail, give this a try. PRESSURIZED WATER FLUSH: - Unplug machine, remove water reservoir & set aside. - locate water inlet opening (this is the hole in which the reservoir drains) - using your garden hose, place nozzle flush with water inlet opening, direct water stream into this opening while slowly increasing water flow. - BE CAREFUL NOT TO GET ELECTRONICS OF THE MACHINE WET - water should begin pouring from beverage dispenser & overflow/reservoir pipe. - continue flushing machine for 30 seconds. You may notice chalky white particles in the water flowing from machine (this stuff is the cause of your problems). Your machine should be as good as new now! Repeat process is problems persist. You may also use compressed air to clean the machine and other commercial descalation products.

My keurig says I need to descale.How?


Descaling depends the size of the reservoir. I see the B60 but not the B66 at the Keurig site. The two units are apparently the same from searching the support side of the Keurig site: http://www.keurig.com .

For the Mini coffee makers, you use 20 oz of vinegar (2 10 oz cycles). For the larger Keurig units, it takes 48 oz of vinegar.

In either case, fill the reservoir with vinegar and put a large ceramic (12 oz mug for the mini unit) mug on the drip tray. Do not add a K-cup. For the B60 (and probably the B66), press the Brew button. Discard the vinegar after the cycle. Repeat the brew process until Add Water is indicated. Discard the vinegar each time. Then wait 4 hours with the unit on. Discard the remaining vinegar and rinse the reservoir. Fill the reservoir with 48 oz of water and brew several cups without a K-cup until the "Add water" message appears. Discard the water in the mug each time. Repeat the vinegar cleaning if De-scale still appears in the LCD. Run more water without the K-cup if you notice a remaining taste in the coffee after the rinse procedure.

For the mini, fill the reservoir with 10 oz of water, lift the Brewer handle and lower it after 5 seconds with no K-cup in the unit. Press the Brew button. Discard the vinegar after the cycle. After the first cycle, pour the other 10 oz of vinegar into the Cold Water Reservoir. Lift the handle and lower it after 5 seconds. Press the Brew button and wait until the light becomes steady. When vinegar starts to be dispensed, power off the unit. Wait 30 minutes. Then power on the unit and lift and lower the handle again. Then discard the vinegar after the cycle. Next run 4 rinse brew cycles with 10 oz of water each time. Discard the water each time. The unit should be ready to brew with a K-cup after the 4 rinse cycles.

I hope this helps.

Salt indicator light comes on?


Check the instructions which are freely available from www.miele.co.uk or the relevant site for your country. Browse to the current models and you should find the PDF for your model. For non-current models, instructions are under the link "Customer Support".

In general, the instructions are as follows:
If the water in your area is very soft and constantly lower than 0.7 mmol/l (4 °d) you do not need to add dishwasher salt. The water softener must, however, still be programmed to correspond to the water hardness level in your area. (The salt indicator light will still come on, but should be ignored).

Important: Before filling the salt reservoir with dishwasher salt for the first time, you must fill it with approx. 2 litres of water to enable the salt to dissolve. Once the dishwasher has been used, there is always sufficient water in the reservoir.

Inadvertently filling the salt reservoir with powder or liquid dishwasher detergent always leads to serious damage to the water softener. Make sure you have picked up the correct packet of dishwasher salt before filling the salt reservoir!

Only use special coarse grained dishwasher salt for reactivation. Do not use other salts such as cooking salt, agricultural grade or gritting salt. These may contain insoluble additives which can impair the functioning of the water softener.

To refill:
* Remove the lower basket and unscrew the salt reservoir cap.
* Fill the reservoir with approx. 2 litres of water (first use).
* Place the funnel provided over the salt reservoir and carefully fill with salt until the reservoir is full. The salt reservoir holds approx. 2 kg of salt depending on the brand used.

As the salt reservoir is filled, displaced water will overflow.
* Clean any excess salt from around the reservoir opening and then screw the cap on again firmly.
* Run the "Pre-wash" programme immediately to remove any traces of salt water from the cabinet.

For the Miele, the salt reservoir is usually under the bottom basket, the cap is usually grey in colour. [Only the latest models have the refill cap in the door itself].

You should be able to find dishwasher salt just about anywhere, I've even found it in Malaysia, sold at good ol' Tesco!! Brands of salt include Calgonit (Finish) & Somat.
