Changing the water filter

Mine was out so long that now I do not know if the filter holder is reinserted into the water tank (of the DC 1200) with the water filter at the top of the tank, or at the bottom. Cannot find a picture of it online

My keurig says its not ready no matter what I do

When this happened to mine it was badly clogged by my hard water and needed cleaning....fill with vinegar and even if you can run a cycle right away let it just sit in the tank.

My Keurig says to prime

This video link below, from keurig, should get you back running.
remove reservoir, if you have a water filter, remove it and set aside. Use a damp non abrasive cloth and clean tank including filter screen. DO NOT DRY the inside with a cloth as lint may remain. DO NOT PUT in a dishwasher. Let it air dry. Reinsert the water filter. Put tank back into unit making sure it is aligned properly. Fill tank all the way up with clean water. Turn power on and attempt 3 WATER only brew cycles at the 6 or 8 ounce size. DO NOT USE A PORTION PACK.

If this doesn't work, you may have to clean the needles of the K-cup holder and / or the filter screen and water reservoir port.

If the problem persists you can contact you can contact Keurig at 1-866-901-BREW (2739) or

We just had a major storm i think maybe moister got in gas tank i was wondering if a can of dry gas would work

they have additives that remove water from fuel,, however that depends on how much water your talking about, if your sure this is the problem,, I'd drain the tank, and start new if you suspect a bunch of water got in,, you might also check the distributor cap for moisture in there, that causes missing and bad running also

Says water tank is full when I plug it in

Turn the unit OFF and unplug it. Remove the water collection bucket. Look inside to see if there is a float valve device near the top of the tank.If there is, it's stuck in the UP position. Jiggle it, to make it return to the DOWN position. Once it goes down, reinsert it into the bucket holder.

If your unit does not have a Float Valve, when you reinsert it back into it's holder, it has to trigger the bucket removal safety switch. To make sure it does that, insert "squarely" in the bucket holder making sure that it's square from top to bottom. The bottom of the tank should not tilt downward, if it is inserted properly.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

I am changing the filters on an AC30 RO unit. I am trying to find a step-by-step instruction set to ensure that I do not cause back contamination or some other problem in the changing process.

If your filtration system is like mine, you turn off water, release pressure by pushing button, and then untwist the filter holder. Cartridge filters are reversible. If your filter holder unscrews, you can clean it out. Use hydrogen peroxide to clean any water container, for example a water heater with rotten-egg smell, water purifier, air conditioning pan, thermos, dehumidifier etc. You can also pour boiling water into the filter holder.

Hydrogen peroxide is also first aid for cuts, minor skin infections, chigger bites, spider bites, mosquito itching, and sink disinfectant. It is an oral debriding agent. It is not a drinkable substance, but a bit in the water pipes will not do any harm. It is perfectly safe for cleaning your filter.

Water filter

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 side by side whrilpool refreg

First of all, is there a reset button that needs to be pushed after changing filter? Mine has one. Check around the sides and top inside the fridge for a little button and push it in.

Is the water turned on going to the fridge?
If it was working before you changed filter, maybe the water line got kinked somewhere and no water can come through.

Also, if filter isn't reinstalled correctly, no water can come through it. Make sure the filter is not upside down and that the holder is screwed in all the way.

Remove the filter holder (portafilter).
The manual says to unscrew the nozzle from the filter holder coupling and wash with hot water.
Mix a liquid decalcifier with water in tank at a 1:1 ratio. DO NOT USE VINEGAR! It says to fill the water reservoir.
Run the cleaniing solution through the machine - pressing the coffee button, 1 cup at a time. During each interval let the decalcifier act for 10 or 15 minutes by turning off the machine by the main switch.
Carefully wash the tank and fill with fresh water and empty 2/3 of this by pressing the coffee button.
Now let the machine warm up and empty the rest of the reservoir by rotating the hot water/steam knob.
Screw the nozzle in the filter holder coupling again.
