    My machine has started releasing a lot of coffee grounds into the cup. This just started about two days ago and is ruining the coffee.

I have the same problem but if you take a paper towel and clean the grounds from the top each time it helps. Cleaning around the little point that pierces the cup. It helps but doesn't completely eliminate the problem.

Why does my Keurig smoke when brewing coffee, and the water doesn't go through until I take out the cup?


You probably have a clogged nozzle/needle. Take a straightened paperclip and run it thru the hollow needles that puncture the top and bottom of the k-cup. Make sure they are clear then try to brew a cup. Never reuse a k-cup. That's what usually clogs the needles.

My Keurig (one year old) does not brew a full cup (I have it set for the largest cup setting) and it only brews approx 4 oz. then stops.?


1. Power off machine.

2. Using a metal paperclip, insert it into left side of top needle. It must insert at least 1" deep. Insert it into slot on right side and again from back of needle.

3. Remove KCup cradle. Separate bottom from top. In the top section, insert the paperclip up into bottom needle from the bottom upwards. It will not go all the way thru and this is normal.

4. Reassemble KCup cradle and reinsert it back into coffee maker.

5. Power on machine.

6. Brew a cup of water only. There may be coffee grounds in the water and these should eventually clear during the remaining steps. NOTE: A large cup brew cycle should output a full 8 ounces (235cc). Less means there is still a blockage

When I brew a cup of coffee there are coffee grounds in the coffee?


Take your K-cup out and it splits into two pieces. The buttom half has a chamber where coffee grounds that slip out can sit. When it builds up you tend to see allot of grounds in your coffee.

Also check that your top needle seat is there and in good condition.

Our Keurig only dispenses a partial cup of coffee. We descaled as recommended and did the paperclip cleaning of the need,es and no improvement. When we press brew, it draws an appropriate amount of water...


Keurig coffee maker dispenses only part of a cup (about 5 ounces) after brewng one cup. Running a second clear cup (w/o K-cup) shows coffee grounds in cup of clear water. the maker will then brew a full cup of coffee. It appears that the top pin is too long and goes into the coffee after it punches through the top of the K-cup. Some of the gorunds appear to get stuck in the top pin.

Not brewing a full cup


If you keurig makes small cups or insists that you descale even after you have, your problem is that grounds are being forced up into the waterhole that pushes into the K-cup. The solution to both these problems is to keep a safety pin next to your maker and puncture each K-cup just before you put it into the coffee maker. This keeps the pressure of gasses that builds up in K-cups from fresh coffee from forcing grounds into the water hole. It may take a few days of this plus you may want to use the pin to clean out the upper water hole and run a few clean water brews but this will fix the above mentioned problems for good.

My machine only brews 1/2 cup of coffee. I have de-scaled twice within the last week and I get a full cup of vinegar/water, but as soon as I put in a K-cup I only get 1/2 cup of coffee out. The first cup...


I had some coffee grounds stuck up in the cone shaped hole that the water comes from at the top. I had to use a very long toothpick but it broke up some of the grounds that happened to get caught up inside. Before doing this, I went through 24 oz of vinager ;) .. the toothpick worked!
