Keurig B200...multiple issues

I picked up 9 B200s with various issues. I'm descaling all of them with vinegar as a first round of troubleshooting. Several of them have the TCO open error. I attempted the fix listed on this forum, but I can't get the black cover off the actual dispenser arm. I'm still working on that. Some will leak/spit water when you turn them on. One doesn't seem to heat at all. A couple don't dispense. I have one that works perfectly, so I got my money's worth, but any other ideas/suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Too many problems with the B200 and they stopped selling it.

SOURCE: My 9 month old machine only spits out water for a second

I called Keurig and they felt that it was likely a blockage at the needles, but despite cleaning them repeatedly, there was no improvement. They are sending me a replacement.

How to descale keurig elite 40 coffee maker with vinigar


Unfortunately you will need to use vinegar. The acetic acid in vinegar is strong enough to clean most brewing machines.

Use distilled white vinegar.

Regardless of setting, I have not been able to get any more than 1/4 to 1/3 of a cup of coffee. The water barely comes out and now the descale message is on the screen. I need instructions for...


Although this is in "Problem with Vacuums," I found it while searching for a solution to my steam cleaner vacuum problem. You must be talking about a Keurig or Breville-Keurig coffee maker. Tap water, especially chemically softened tap water, contains minerals that require periodic descaling, as often as every two months if you make only a couple of cups a day.

Filling the tank with white vinegar and making multiple large mugs without a Keurig coffee cup in the holder will remove most scale. There are products that claim to do better than white vinegar if this does not work. Amazon sells a couple of brands in its Keurig section.

It will take several tank fulls of clean water to rid the machine of the vinegar or commercial cleaning solution. Use distilled water for this. Then switch to good bottled water without a heavy mineral load.

My keurig coffee maker is flashing the words DE SCALE. What does that mean and how do I fix it?


"Scale" is deposits of minerals, etc. normally found in water. Boiling a container of water (in a pot, or coffee maker in this case), leaves small amounts or "deposits" of these minerals on and near the actual heat source. If not removed, they can slow brewing time and more importantly, adversely affect the taste of coffee.

Descaling should be done at regular intervals to prevent this from happening. Your machine lets you know when to perform the descaling task. There are a number of products sold in your supermarket that will do this for you - but one of the least expensive; and just as effective - is to use white vinegar. Here's how to do it:

1) Drain your Keurig coffee machine over a sink.
2) Fill the machine with undiluted white vinegar.
3) Run the brew process at least four times, pouring the cups of vinegar back into the coffee maker.
4) Optionally, let your Keurig coffee maker sit for a few hours, then run the brew cycles again. Pour the vinegar into the sink and drain any remaining vinegar.
5) Fill your coffee maker with fresh water. Run multiple brew cycles with fresh water each time to thoroughly rinse the machine before returning to normal use.

That's it!

I know this will help & good luck. Please rate my reply - thanks!

Keurig B70 won't stop cycling water. it just keeps draining the resevoir. Water is cold, not heated.

Descaled the Keurig - light still on.


Try running water through without the K Cup inside. My machine has the same problem and the "descale" message goes away after using this procedure. I am beginning to think that the bottom line on all of this is a pump that is steadily weakening.

Descaling light on


Per Pages 9 and 10 of Keurig Model B40 Use and Care Guide,
1) turn off the "Auto Off "feature
2) fill empty water reservoir with 48 ozs of undiluted white vinegar.
3. Place ceramic cup on the drip tray and run a brew cycle. Do not use a K-cup!
4. Press the large mug Button
- let Keurig coffee maker fill mug with vinegar & empty in sink.
5. Repeat brew process until water reservoir of vinegar is empty. (remember to open and close lid between each cycle so large mug Button will flash.
6. Rinse the water reservoir thoroughly and fill with fresh water.
7. FINAL STEP RINSE CYCLE
a) place a ceramic cup on the drip tray
b) run regular brew cycles WITHOUT using a K-cup.
c) pour rinse water into sink each time.
d) repeat brew process until water reservoir is empty.
d) perform additional rinse cycles if you notice any residual vinegar taste.
e) if the red "De-scale" light remains illuminated after completing descale and rinse cycles, repeat the descaling procedure above.
Otherwise - you're good to go!
