Question about Keurig Mini B31 Plus Black Coffee Maker
My brand new mini keurig will start brewing fine for about 3 seconds. Then it acts as though the k-cup gets clogged or that water cant penetrate the filter and come through, because the brewing becomes slow and almost completely stops. At this point, the top of the K-cup blows off all the way around and the machine spews the grounds everywhere. I purchased the resusable filter hoping this would help. It does not blow the top off the filter, but it definately tries! What could be the problem?
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.
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.

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.

This may be one of two issues:
1. The pump is malfunctioning which can cause the internal reservior to not completely fill which causes issues during brewing. My unit dribbled random amounts of water instead of brewing for about a week before the pump died completely.
2. The puncture seal isn't in the right position. Open the Keurig fully so you can see the sharp puncture pin. Very Carefully push the black rubber gasket around it all the way up. Then pull it back down about 1/16". Brew a cup, if the problem continues, try sliding the gasket further down by increments of 1/32".

SOURCE: coffee grounds in the cup
since you said usually... I suspect the rubber seal that surrounds the top needle is not seating well...
you can verify this by making a beverage with a k-cup and, just before the water starts, add a little hand pressure to the K-cup arm pushing down a little bit... not hard...
If it consistently makes a good beverage, then we focus our attention to that piece of the brewer...
when the consistency of the water changes, it tells me to look for leaks or unusual percolation of water...
you can verify the K-cup holder is ok... but another way to simulate the hand pressure is to put a shim of some sorts under the lip of the k-cup... like the thickness of a couple sheets of paper under the rim... not the actual k-cup... but the k-cup holder... raising it up a smidge is the same as the slight hand pressure...
I would look to see if the rubber seal has come loose around the top needle....

mcdevito75 here, It may need to be cleaned, water used to brew coffee leaves deposits in the brewing holes and must be cleaned every once in a while. Refer to the owners manual on cleaning the coffee maker.
