This can go out by draw out some hot water. However if this happens very often then you need to perform a descale.The brewer should be descaled at least every 3-6 months. Scale is harmless, but if left unattended, it can hinder optimal brewer performance. Descaling 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 descaling your brewer at least every 6 months (every 3 months if your water has a high mineral content). The descaling process involves using 48 ounces of undiluted white vinegar. Learn how to descale your brewer.

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.

Hi,

I teied to find an answer for you and went to their website. Theys ay that the brewer needs to be descaled. The link below will bring you to thier site and I also pasted the excerpt below. It should still be under warranty too I think if you have only had it for six months. I pasted their number below.

http://www.keurig.com/help/faq.asp#brewer10


De-Scaling Your 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 Brewer performance. De-scaling your Brewer helps maintain the heating element and other internal parts of the Brewer that come in contact with water. The Brewer should be de-scaled every 3-6 months to ensure optimal performance or when there are white deposits in the Cold Water Reservoir. It is possible for calcium deposits to build up faster, making it necessary to de-scale more often. Please reference your Brewer’s Owner’s Manual for specific de-scaling instructions.
