It's helpful, but not necessary to use the charcoal water filters. Pull the charcoal water filter out of the basin and open it up to empty out the existing filters. Then snap the water filter holder back into place - you have to have the holder in place even if the filters are not inside.

Here is a link to the manual:

My coffee from my keurig is too hot

Coffee is mostly water, so can't pass over 100?C. All coffee makers work under the principle of boiling the water and pass the steam through the grinded coffee
If you wait some time, it cools off to a confortable temperature to drink.
Just guess you wanted to ask something else. In some coffee makers you should not use coffee grinded too fine or should not compact the coffee because it get's "explosive"

Clean it out. If there is a partial clog, some Keurigs will pump some of the water back into the tank. See if this is happening when you brew. Then clean the brew head water input (stick a paper clip or similar up the shaft and wiggle it). If this is still a problem, replace the filter in the water tank.

Will not process the water to make coffee

the coffe maker might be clogged up so here' what to do: Look through the clear plastic panel on the side of the coffee maker's water tank to make sure that it has water in it.
  • Clean your Sunbeam coffee maker, You can wash the removable filter basket and carafe in hot, soapy water and pour 4 cups of white vinegar into the water reservoir of your coffee maker. Start the brewing cycle with no coffee grounds to allow the vinegar to clean the inside of the coffee maker. Rinse away the vinegar by running the brewing cycle twice with only clean, fresh water.
  • 8 Check the removable filter basket to see if the filter has collapsed if you find coffee grounds in your brewed coffee. If the paper filters collapse often you can wet them before you place them inside the filter basket so that they will stick to the basket and stay in place. or check this link because it might need a new hose.

    How to measure coffee for 45 cups. Also is a filter needed.

    The Instruction Manual for your coffee maker can be found here:

    100-CUP MODEL #33600

    Water Level Measure of Ground Coffee

    100 cups 6 ¼ cups

    80 cups 5 cups

    60 cups 4 cups

    40 cups 2½ cups

    Do not make less than 40 or more than 100 cups of coffee at one time. Use electric perk or regular grind coffee; a filter liner is not necessary.

    I have a two month KEURIG Platinum 10 cup coffee maker. I used filtered water from my frig, soon discovered white flakes swimming in it. Today mysystem said De Scale, will notadmit water from...

    Try passing a fine wire back up through the water inlet that punctures the K cups. Drain most of the water from the reservoir and add white vinegar. If necessary, add enough water to clear the low level light on the panel. Hit the start button, and collect a cup of whatever comes out. Either filter the water and re-use or dump out. Continue using the white vinegar, letting it work in the reservoir and internal pot for ~10 minutes between cycles (cups). It will take at least one hour to clean it out and flush it well. Once you are making a cup's worth of water at normal speed and time, dump the reservoir on the side, and refill with clean water. If the reservoir has a bit of a slimy feel inside it, wash it thoroughly before re-installing. (You should wash the reservoir probably weekly, or so, depending on you water).
    Flush clean water through the system, dumping each cup produced, until all traces of the vinegar are removed.
    Best regards,

    First, check / remove the water filter in the tank, next try to run hot water thru the wand, not steam but water, this should prime the system, then turn off and back on, that should do the trick, unless you have a bad pump. Good Luck!

    Water will not pass through seems clogged

    Sometimes coffee grounds get into the intake if you don't use the intake filter. Unplug, set the pot aside and then turn the coffe maker upside down in a sink with a good hose sprayer. Direct the water up into the intake side of the coffe maker with the filter out.

    Then refill and see if water will flow through. If it works, run vinegar or a pot of water with a tablespoon of dissolved baking soda (dissolve in pot first or it will clog the coffee maker).

    It worked for me.

    My coffee maker works very slowly after about three weeks of use. Specifically, the water does not pass through the filter and into the pot quickly, if at all. Suggestions?

    Try cleaning it with white vinegar. Put in one cup with a potful of water, and let it soak. To get more cleaning, pour the water/vinegar through again, hot. Put in a coffee filter to catch/strain the debris, and you will be able to see if it's helping. When you're through cleaning, pass fresh water through the machine by potfuls, until no traces of vinegar can be detected.
