Brewer overfilling overnight. We will empty out "overfill cup", re-start the brewer, and we will be able to use it but the next day unit will be locke-out and overflowing from the overfill cup.

You need a water level float or indicator. Without the brand, model & serial number, I can't give you any specifics but, if you go to the manufacturese website or a small appliance parts website, you should be able to find what you're looking for.

    If the hot water coil is leaking internally, it will overflow always. a little to a lot, depending on the hole.

Clean a keurig coffe maker

Cleaning & descaling your Keurig brewer is an important step to enjoying the best tasting coffee and keeping your brewer in good shape for years.
4 Comments 2

How often you need to do it depends heavily on how often you use your brewer and how "hard" your local water is ("hard" meaning how many minerals are in it). I try to do this 3-4 times a year.
Comment Recommended For You 3 640x960.jpg

Open the top of your brewer and remove the K-cup holder. CAUTION: There's are two sharp needles in there. Be careful.
Comment 4 640x960.jpg

The cup holder is dishwasher safe. You can toss it in the dishwasher if you want. Otherwise a good rinse under warm running water is usually good. There's a sharp needle in here, so be careful.
Comment 5 640x960.jpg

Turn the cup holder over and ensure these holes at the bottom are free of any obstruction.
Comment 6 640x960.jpg

The drip-tray is removable. Give it a good clean either by hand or in the dishwasher.
Comment 7 640x960.jpg

The upper portion of the K-cup holder also has a needle. This needle has three holes in it. Insert a straightened paper clip into each hole to remove any buildup or obstructions.
1 Comment 8 640x960.jpg

Here's a close up: There's nothing you can break in here, so use some force and get that paperclip a good inch in and wiggle it around vigorously. Repeat this for the two other holes in the needle.
1 Comment 9 640x960.jpg

Use a damp, soft cloth to wipe away any coffee grinds or water stains in and around the cup holder area, and down the front of the brewer.
Comment 10 640x960.jpg

Be careful of that needle inside when wiping it down.
Comment 11 640x960.jpg

Put the K-cup holder back in the chamber. Make sure it's the right way around by aligning the arrows at the top of the holder.
Comment 12 640x960.jpg

Empty the water in the brewer's external reservoir.
2 Comments 13 640x960.jpg

Refill the reservoir with undulated white vinegar and replace on your brewer.
1 Comment 14 640x960.jpg

Run four large cup brew cycles. DO NOT use a K-cup, just run it empty . Dispose of the hot vinegar after each. This pushes the vinegar through the inside heating tank as well as all the valves inside.
2 Comments 15 640x960.jpg

Leave your brewer to stand, powered on for four hours. This allows the vinegar time to break down any build up in the tubes and valves inside the brewer.
1 Comment 16 640x960.jpg

Discard any leftover vinegar then refill the reservoir with water only.
Comment 17 640x960.jpg

Run large cup cycles until "Add Water" is displayed on your brewer's screen. This washes out all traces of vinegar from the insides of the system.
Comment 18

If you notice a vinegar-like smell or taste to the water coming out of your brewer, refill the reservoir with water a second time and run hot water cycles until empty.

Congratulations!! Your Keurig brewer is now clean and your ready to enjoy full cups of delicious coffee for months to come!

1 Answer

Coffee maker will not make but one size cup


If your brewer is not brewing the full amount selected, it may be caused by the following:
  • The exit needle is clogged by coffee grounds or cocoa mix. Please refer to the K-Cup Holder cleaning instructions.
  • The brewer may need to be de-scaled. Please refer to the de-scaling instructions.
  • The removable water reservoir was removed during brewing. Place the water reservoir back onto the brewer and perform a cleansing brew without a K-Cup.
First try to make a descale maybe repeat it the next day.

Display reads descale, what can i do to fix this


Descaling the Brewer Mineral content in water varies from place to place. Depending on the mineral content of the water in your area, calcium deposits or scale may build up in your Brewer. Scale is non-toxic, but left unattended, it can hinder the Brewer's performance. Descaling your Brewer helps maintain the heating element and other internal parts of the Brewer that come in contact with water.
NOTE: Do not use water that has been treated by a 'water softener'. The increase in sodium levels in the water can cause scaling in the brewer and hinder its performance.
The Brewer should be descaled every 3-6 months to ensure optimal performance. It is possible for calcium deposits to build up faster, making it necessary to descale more often. This Brewer is equipped with sensors to detect when scale buildup is interfering with the performance of the Brewer. When this is detected, the LCD screen will indicate 'DESCALE'.
NOTE: The Brewer will continue to operate even when the LCD screen indicates 'DESCALE'.
However, if you do not descale the Brewer soon after it is displayed, continued scale buildup could damage the Brewer. If this occurs, 'DESCALE' will begin to flash, alerting you to the potential damage to the Brewer if you do not descale immediately. Promptly follow these steps each time the LCD screen indicates 'DESCALE' to ensure that the Brewer functions optimally.
1. 4459906401_be71bd1933_t.jpg Empty the Water Tank and refill it with vinegar, filling up to the MAX mark on the water tank viewing window. 2. 4459906749_2d2d8c9472_t.jpg Place a 12 oz. or larger ceramic cup (do not use a plastic cup) on the Drip Tray. The Drip Tray and Drip Tray Plate can be removed to accommodate taller mugs and travel mugs. 3. 4460685206_41a39b1eab_t.jpg Select the largest brew size (11.25 oz. serving) by pressing the button on the control panel. 4. 4460685734_41eef702a7_t.jpg Run a cleansing brew without a K-Cup®. Pour the contents of the cup into the sink. 5. 4459906625_e723d37450_t.jpg Repeat the cleansing brew process until the Water Tank is empty, pouring the contents of the cup into the sink after each cycle. Remember to raise and lower the Safety Locking Arm between each cycle so the control panel buttons illuminate. 6.
Let the Brewer stand for at least 4 hours while still on. 7. 4459906401_be71bd1933_t.jpg Rinse the Water Tank thoroughly and fill with fresh water. 8. 4459906749_2d2d8c9472_t.jpg Place a 12 oz. or larger ceramic cup (do not use a plastic cup) on the Drip Tray. 9. 4460685734_41eef702a7_t.jpg Run a cleansing brew without a K-Cup®.

You may need to perform additional rinse cycles if you notice any residual taste.

Remember to raise and lower the Safety Locking Arm between each cycle so the control panel buttons illuminate. 11. 4443328562_50d07cb55b_t.jpg Disconnect the power plug from the wall outlet for at least 15 minutes, then re-plug the power cord into the wall outlet. The machine is now ready to use.

NOTE: If the LCD screen continues to indicate 'DESCALE' after completing the process, repeat the 'Descaling the Brewer' process.

Sorry to read about your issue.
If you have been doing the descale, your unit is defective.

Keurig does not make repair's or carries replacement parts for their units. you can contact Keurig at 1-866-901-2739 or Keurig.com
You do have a 1 year warranty, and if you are out of warranty. They will give a discount on a new unit.

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.

After many uses, the cups are starting to get much smaller. when you brew a normal size cup, it comes out at about half the size of what it was previously
