Use more often as the OLD water sits and gets that way. Or Flush water out after its use.

Dear Sir/madam,

Please contact our Customer Service department at 1-866-901-BREW (2739) to make service arrangements.

PREPARE
Step 1: Make sure you have 48 ounces of white vinegar on hand. You will also need an empty sink and a ceramic mug (do not use a paper cup.)
Step 2: Empty the water in the Water Reservoir b. FILL AND CLEAN
Step 1: Pour the vinegar into the Water Reservoir and fill it to the top edge of the clear viewing area.
Step 2: Place a ceramic cup in the Drip Tray and run a brew cycle. DO NOT USE A K-CUP…just press the Large Cup Button. Pour the contents of the cup into the sink.
Step 3: Repeat the brew process until the Water Reservoir is empty, pouring the contents of the cup into the sink after each cycle. Remember to open and close the lid between each cycle.
Step 4: Now fill reservoir with fresh water and let the Brewer stand for 4 hours while still on.
Step 5: Rinse the Water Reservoir thoroughly and fill with fresh water. c. RINSE Step 1: Ensure the Water Reservoir is filled with fresh water.
Step 2: Place a ceramic cup on the Drip Tray and run a regular brew cycle. Pour the contents of the cup into the sink.
Step 3: Repeat the brew process until the Water Reservoir is empty. Step 4: You may need to perform additional brew cycles if you notice any residual taste.

Regular cleaning (de-scaling) will prolong the life of the appliance. Scale is harmless, but left unattended, it can hinder optimal Brewer performance. De-scaling your Brewer regularly helps maintain the heating element, water reservoir and other parts of the Brewer that come in contact with water. Better water quality and water heating means a better cup of coffee. We recommend de-scaling your Brewer at least every 6 months (every three months if you are using hard water). The descaling process involves using 48 ounces of undiluted white vinegar.

Regular cleaning of the Brewer’s external components is recommended for proper operation. We recommend cleaning with a soapy, damp non-abrasive cloth. The K-Cup holder and funnel, drip plate, drip tray and removable water reservoir (on the Elite B40, Special Edition B60, and Platinum B70) are dishwasher safe. NOTE: the removable lid of the water reservoir is NOT dishwasher safe. The brewer should be descaled every 3-6 months.

SOURCE: lead in the coffee maker

It does contain a small amount of lead inside a copper coil located in the electronics of the machine. This part does not come in contact with the water, heater or any other part that would cause lead contamination of your coffee.

This page has a great write up explaining it:

Empty the reservoir of any water. Fill it back up with white vinegar. Get a paper clip and poke it up in to the needle that the water comes out of on the top of the lid. Run the vinegar through the machine until the reservoir is empty. You can even let the vinegar sit in the coffee maker for 10-15 minutes. Refill reservoir with purified water and run the maker until all the water is dispensed and the reservoir is empty. There should be no more vinegar smell. Never use tap water. Do this every two months. Note: if the area where the K-Cup sits gets dirty with grounds, put a large bowl under it and then pour a glass of water over the whole area to clean. Also, on occasion just run a cup of water through the machine (with no coffee) just to make sure that there are no grounds caught in the needle. Done!

The descale light keeps blinking, what should I do?


The 'Descale' light that turns on indicates that it is time to de-scale the machine.
Scale - or mineral deposits- form from the water you run through your Keurig coffee machine. If not cleaned regularly, the buildup can clog the lines in your machine and ruin the heating element. The manufacturer recommends you descale Keurig coffee makers once every six months for normal water conditions and once every three months if you live in an area with hard water.
You will need :
  • Keurig coffee maker
  • 48 oz. white distilled vinegar
  • Water
  • Large ceramic cup
  • Sink


Instructions :
  • 1 Unplug the coffee machine and remove the cup.
  • 2 Turn the coffee machine upside down over the sink in order to fully drain it of water. Be careful of the plug and avoid getting it wet.
  • 3 Pour undiluted white vinegar into the reservoir up to the top edge of the viewing window.
  • 4 Place a ceramic cup under the machine, plug it in and press "Brew" for a large cup. Pour the cups of vinegar into the sink and repeat the process until the reservoir is empty.
  • 5 Remove the final cup of vinegar and empty it. Fill the coffee maker with clean water and allow it to sit for four hours, remaining on.
  • Good luck ;)

    DCC-1200 coffee maker. I've had it for 2 months and the clean light came on. I have run several pots of vinegar, unplugged the machine overnight and reset to factory settings and still the machine...


    Most coffee makers use a small check-valve in the feed line to the coffee basket and if a small particle gets trapped in it, the pumping action becomes erratic or very slow. To be sure any lime deposits are dissolved, use < 1 cup of Lime Away or similar product such as CLR. Make sure there is no water left in the reservoir and pour the product into it. With no coffee in the basket and the pot in place, turn on the machine and watch for the first drops into the pot, then turn off the machine again.
    Let it stand for a couple of hours (I'd recommend against leaving it overnight) and then turn it back on to let it finish pumping the reservoir empty. Check the sediment in the bottom of the pot and if you see any 'crud' such as particles of lime or even a granule of coffee, you may have solved the problem.
    If that seems to be the case, flush the machine with a tablespoon of baking soda and then clear water.
    Good luck-

    We have model # BKC800XL - it give us a message about "descale" not sure what that means and how to correct


    Just like any coffee or espresso maker, descaling is a process that needs to be done periodically. If your location has hard water, you may need to descale more often than elsewhere, but it's nothing to worry about. It's just a chemical process that occurs as the result of mineral deposits from the water collecting on the elements inside the coffee maker. I'm sure that coffee manufacturers will sell you tablets for descaling, but I've always just used undiluted white vinegar as the reactant. To do this, I recommend: 1. Empty all of the water from the reservoir. 2. Fill with undiluted white vinegar. 3. For this type of coffee maker, brew as many cups as it takes to empty the reservoir, being sure to dump each cup in the sink as it finishes. 4. Once you've run through all of the vinegar from the reservoir, refill with water and run a few cycles to rinse. (You may want to leave the water to soak for a while to give the residual vinegar further time to clean off the minerals.) 5. Fill again with water and rinse. 6. Once you've emptied the reservoir a second time with the water, your machine should be adequately descaled and ready to brew coffee again!

    It does not do a full cup....I have gotten it to finish when starting over but now I cant get the water to run out at all...


    With the coffee maker unplugged and an empty cup in place, I filled the reservoir with filtered water and with a short length of flexible plastic tubing I blew in to the small hole in the bottom of the reservoir. I did this 4 or 5 times sucking some water in to the tube to force it through the system. When I had finished there were a lot of grounds in the cup and the next time I used the coffee maker it worked perfectly.

    Water runs thru maker without k-cup inserted but once I put a k-cup into maker the water drips out only and does not fill up the cup but when i remove the k-cup the water continues to run thru it.


    The brewer should be de-scaled at least every 3-6 months. Scale is harmless, but if left unattended, it can hinder optimal brewer performance. De-scaling your brewer regularly helps maintain the heating element, removable water reservoir and other parts of the brewer that come in contact with water. Better water quality and water heating means a better cup of coffee, tea, hot cocoa or iced beverage. We recommend de-scaling your brewer at least every 6 months (every 3 months if your water has a high mineral content). The de-scaling process involves using 48 ounces of undiluted white vinegar.

    Take 48 oz of white vinegar. place in tank. pretend you are making coffee (Do No Use K Cup). let the water fill you mug. then empty that mug. Do it again until tank is empty. then let sit for 4 hours.
    Then fill with fresh water to the top. let that tank of water run thru. towards the end taste the water.
    If you taste vinegar..use more clean water, until the taste is ok.

    Lost instruction manual. How do I clean coffee maker to get rid of strong acid taste coffee? MoldelB60 single cup coffee maker


    Most coffee pots are cleaned by running 1 part white vinegar and 1 part water. Just put in the reservoir and run a cycle. Once completed, run again with 1/2 pot of water only and it will clean it. If you use your pot daily, this should be done once every few months. If you have foul tasting coffee, you should use bottled water to rectify that. Plain tap water has minerals that dilute the taste of the coffee and over time build a residue in your pot.
