It might be time to clean your Keurig. Fill the water tank with vinegar and run through about 5-6 glasses leaving time in between to let the vinegar clean. After running all of the vinegar through it should be brewing regularly again.

First thing to try is a descale. Run the machine normally using it (as if making a cup of both types) a couple of times with a 50/50 mix of white vinegar and water. Leave the machine off but uncleaned overnight. run a couple of cycles with just water, and if there is still a slight vinegar taste then run a cycle with a teaspoon of baking soda in water, then flush with just water again. If this doesn't solve the problem, try again with 75% vinegar. If still not working, there is either a control board problem (may be solveable), or the valve/solenoid that stops/allows the water is sticking, almost certainly solveable by taking that apart and cleaning/lubricating. Definitely solveable by replacement. Let me know what you get after a descale if no luck. Hope this helps :)

SOURCE: Delivers only small amount of coffee per brewed cup

this is not a scale issue, mine arrived from the factory producing only 6oz of water. way to strong for most. called the factory, scale, scale blah blah blah, vinegar untill we were blue. bored one day took the unit apart. on the right hand side there is some clear tubing which housed a one way valve, took apart and the valve was partally clogged. removed cleaned and reinstalled, this valve works best when not fully" seated" where it belongs so reinstall gently into the hose and leave it alone. I know what your thinking scale, scale scale. wrong. still only made 6 oz cups. there is a timer device on the back wall of the front panel on the right side as you face the unit. it is adhered to the wall with two sided tape. pry it off and on the back low and behold is a timer screw that changes the length of pump run time. turn clockwise with a sharp knife or eyeglass screwdriver and retest. 9oz of water. shame on keurig for not being more responsive to its customers.

Have you descaled the brewer? The internal tank builds up mineral deposits from the water and that causes the short cupping you are describing. You should be descaling about once every 3 months or so. The instructions are in your manual.

SOURCE: saeco vienna leaks CLEAR water from under the machine.

The leaking is from the water pipe coming from the boiler thought the solenoid valve to coffee group. Their are many points that this leak can be so the only way to find it is to run the machine completly open without the plastic sides. The most posible postion is the plastic hose conected on the coffee group and some times you will have to place it back in position very easy.
Good luck.

My Keurig B40 has three different size cup sizes available, but it dispenses the same amount of water for the medium size cup and the large cup of coffee. It's barely been used so It doesn&am


I realize you think it does not need descaling to to it 'not being used much.'
However you may have hard water and I would think descaling is definitely worth a try. There might be scale built up on the water level probes in you machine.

Descaling Details are listed below:

Brewer Model: Elite B40 ' Classic B44
Special Edition B60 ' Platinum B70

To begin, you will need the following:
• 48 ounces of undiluted white vinegar
• Large ceramic mug (do not use a paper cup)
• Access to an empty sink

PREPARE
Step 1:
Empty the water in the Water Reservoir.

Step 2:
Disable "Auto Off features."

FILL AND CLEAN
Step 1:
Pour approximately 48 ounces of the vinegar into the Water Reservoir.

Step 2:
Place a large mug on the Drip Tray Plate and run a brew cycle.

(DO NOT USE A K-CUP)

Just press the BREW Button. Pour the contents of the large mug into the sink.

Step 3:
Repeat the brew process without a K-Cup until "ADD WATER"
is indicated.

Step 4:
Now let the Brewer stand for at least 4 hours while still on.

Step 5:
Discard any residual vinegar and rinse the Water Reservoir thoroughly.

RINSE
Step 1:
Ensure the Water Reservoir is filled with fresh water.

Step 2:
Place a large mug on the Drip Tray Plate and water brew cycle. Pour the contents of the large mug into the sink.

Step 3:
Repeat brew process until "ADD WATER is indicated.

Step 4:
You may need to perform additional water brew cycles if you notice any residual taste.

My mr.coffee keurig model VBMC KG5 single cup coffee maker will not run a whole cup during cycle


The Keurig machine operates by pumping air into the glass boiler to drive the hot water through your coffee cartridge. When you have put a new cartridge into the dispenser, you select a size of cup. When you press the go button, you should hear the machine pump water into the boiler to the requested cup size (test by selecting large size to hear the pumping work). Next the machine operates an air pump to force the specific amount of hot water through the cartridge and make the cup of coffee. The problem encountered with these machine is that a small amount of water can drip internally onto the air pump and it will either not operate or work intermittantly. There is a great 'how to fix' video on utube concerning the Keurig-taking apart and fixing.
Honestly, I don't know whether this is your problem, but I do know this happened to a machine I had. You should hear the tiny air pump working when the cup of coffee should be brewing. You can laboriously take apart and replace, and given the price of these units it may be practicle to do the repair. Watch video on utube--its like three or four parts and very instructive. Sorry I don't have the link.

Magimix Essenza M100 - purchase last week Is there a way of selecting cup size to adjust volume of water delivered? or Do I have to manually switch off the water flow?


It depends if you have a manual or an automatic machine. If you're not sure, the manual one has just one green button, whereas the automatic has two. The automatic one delivers a fixed amount of water, which you can vary but following the instructions. If you have a manual one then you need to press the button once to start the flow, and again to turn it off.

Hope this helps. :o)

I have a Saeco Royal Professional at work and when each of the three coffee size buttons are pressed you get three different sized coffees. I have just bought a new Saeco Royal professional for home and...


Hi
Push and hold the button for the coffee you want, but hold it all the way through the process. Don't release the button until you get the amount of coffee you want for that button, then release the button. That should get you the same amount next time. You can do this for each coffee button. If that didn't fix it you might have a bad flow meter.

My nespresso does not make a full cup any more


Another good solution, though the previous one was good, is that you can factory reset the cup sizes. All you have to do is switch the machine off, and then press and hold the large cup button. After about 10 seconds, keeping your finger on the large cup button, switch the machine on -- then let go of the large cup button after about two more seconds.

I get the same amount of water through the espresso side whether I choose 1 cup or 2 cups. So if I use the one cup espresso holder & that much espresso it is watered down.


In a properly working machine you should get about 50 ml (1.5 ounces) for the single and about 100 ml for the double. The amount is also programmable and just about the only way to get the same amount is to program both to deliver the same amount. The unit has a flow meter to accurately measure the amount of water going to the espresso. Try the program function to reset the amount for single and double.

Gaggia titanium dispenses different amounts of brew


First thing to you should try is descaling your machine if you haven't already. If descaling does not work then it might be some kind of leak issue.

You see, when leaks are present internally in the espresso machine it varies the amount of the cup, because a portion of the water which should have gone into your cup, has leaked into the machine.

It looks like your machine needs some service.
