SOURCE: Tassimo coffee machine doesn't brew automatically

You have to clean the barcode-reader window. Very easy, just wipe it with a cloth. (It's the window just under the piercing unit thingy.)

Just because its made of plastic doesn't mean it should taste like plastic! The engineers made a mistake in design! Get your money back and don't risk taking in carcinogens!

SOURCE: One cup brewer, says it is brewing, but the

If the brewer heats the water but it doen not dispense this is probably because air is trapped in the tubing of the water system.

To solve, use as air compresser with minimum pressure (20-25 psi) and force air through the system using an air nozzle that is long enough to reach into the hole into the area where you fill the water. Place your hand under the dispenser and ensure you can feel the air from the compressor coming through.

Once you clean out the lines, you should be good to go.

We have had our coffee maker sitting on our shelf "broken" for months now. We tried this last ditch effort before tossing the machine in the trash and low and behold it worked! :)

SOURCE: Strong plastic smell and taste on a new Keurig Platnum coffee mak

I had the same problem and I discovered that after running 3 resevoirs full of water through the machine at 192 degrees , it got rid of the plastic smell. Set the cup size at the largest size mug and then just open the lid and close it , hit brew and let it fill the cup. Dump the water in the sink and repeat until you go through at least 3 resevoirs. The smell should be gone by then.

This is my second day with my machine, and after I brewed some tea.... it smelt and taste like plastic. Also after brewing when u pick up the machine it sounds like there's still water in it? What do I do?


Run several cups of just plan water through your B-40, The plastic taste and smell should disappear, And, there will always be about 8 oz. of water that will remain in your B-40 at all times, after first use !!!

THE MACHINE ONLY BREW 1/2 OF THE LIQUID.THE WINDOW READS/BREWING/BUT THE LIQUID STOPS.I GOT TO SHUT THE MACHINE OFF,THEN ON,TO GET ANOTHER 1/2 CUP,BUT SOMETIMES DOES WORK AT ALL.


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.

Coffee tastes like rubber / plastic - brand new Keurig Platinum - any suggestions?


After getting in touch with the Keurig folks - I tried their solution. And... it worked! The coffee this morning tastes wonderful! Here is what they said:

To get rid of the "new brewer taste", we recommend you flush three reservoirs of water through the system. Please add 2 tablespoons of white vinegar to the first reservoir of water. To do this, follow these simple steps:
~ Open and close the handle to simulate a brew cycle (without a K-Cup)
~ Press the largest cup size and brew a cup of water.
~ Repeat the process (opening and closing the lid, then brewing) until the reservoir is empty.
~ Flush two more reservoirs of water through the brewer in the same way.

This process will clear any lingering odors or flavors and allow you to enjoy an unadulterated cup of coffee.

Mr Coffee Maker FTX25 - coffee tastes bad


Try running a 1/3 white vinigar -2/3 water mix into the brewer, let it brew, then run several pots of clear water through it. This should clean up any bad taste.

Hi,
Have you tried using bottled water? I had the same problem and found that Spring water tasted the best.
