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.

Keurig coffee maker makes loud noise single cup brewer. Make loud noise prior to brewing.


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.

Machine takes a long time for first cup to come out then sometimes only half as much water as used to comes out


mcdevito75 here, sounds like your coffee maker needs cleaning, after 20--30 cups of coffee made it does. Fill the decanter with white vinegar, clean or place new filter in the machine and cycle the white vinegar thru 3 times, on the 3rd time time thru stop the machine for 30 minutes, then resume that cycle. Now clean or replace the filter again and cycle thru regular water 3--4 times the get rid of all the vinegar, machine shouls be fine now.

How to clean


mcdevito75 here, Start with a new paper filter or claen the perminant one, you"ll need enough WHITE VINEGAT to fill the pot itself 3/4 full of this WHITE VINEGAR, NOW pour the pot of 3/4 full of WHITE VINEGAR into the resovoir, replace pot in the coffeee maker and cycle thru the vinegar 3 times, each time letting the mavhine cool a bit for easy handleing, on the 3 rd cycle stop 1/2 thru the brew cycle, let machine cool for 30 Minutes, then complete that cycle. Now repeat with fresh water to reove all the vinegar from the machine. Your coffee maker should now be good as new.

How do I clean my B60 Keurig of scale


Empty the water...
start with half distilled water... half white vinegar...
just run it all day... take a break and let the vinegar work... it will be heated up in the main tank... then pushed out to all hoses and sensors etc.etc...

enpty the container... wash it out... fill it with filtered or distilled water and run that until you no longer taste/smell the vinegar...
consider buying a brita pitcher and use that water for your Keurig... I do... and my unit goes for a long long time before it needs a vinegar washing...

P.S. dont use C.L.R. :(
It tastes bad.

It is stuck on large and does not brew


My keurig did the exact same thing. Stuck on large and wasn't pulling water into coffee maker so it would only dispense a small amt of coffee. I turned it off for about 10 mins. Emptied the reservoir and filled it half way with white vinegar. Ran several cups through and after 2nd brew it ran faster and after the 3rd run with vinegar all the size cup lights came back on. It is working great now. Just empty reservoir with remaining vinegar and rinse. Run a couple cycles of plain water through the coffee maker to rinse out vinegar. I hope this works for you.

B60.Coffee maker was working fine untill yesterday, now brews 1 cup and pump starts but does not pump and machine shuts off. Help me. Bill Cobb


Hi Bill, sounds like similar a problem I had with my Keurig Coffee maker. Your pump may be plugged with mineral deposit build-up from your water. Do you use regular tap water or filter it in any manner?
Have you ever cleaned the insides with vinegar? Empty your reservoir of water, and pour a bottle of white vinegar into the reservoir. Run the maker through several cycles to ensure the vinegar has worked its way throughout the ‘guts’ of your maker, and then let it sit for 2-4 hours.
Empty any remaining vinegar from the reservoir and then cycle at least two full reservoirs of water through to flush the vinegar out. When you stop smelling vinegar in your coffee cup, you’ll know when there’s no vinegar left inside.
You should probably clean you Keurig once a year, or more depending on how heavily you use it.
SWMBO tells me you’ll find similar instructions above in the Owners Manual or you can check out this link: http://www.ehow.com/how_4927372_clean-keurig-coffee-machine.html
Good Luck, I hope this helps! – Howard, Burke, VA

Funny tasting coffee


Vinegar/water cleaning is a good idea, but it won't necessarilly solve funny-tasting coffee. First, replace your charcoal water filter - you can get the Cuisinart brand-name replacements at Lowe's, Bed/Bath/Beyond, or Williams-Sonoma in most areas.

To do the vinegar/water cleaning, just pour 1/3 caraffe distilled white vinegar and 2/3 caraffe water into the water reservoir and brew it like it was regular coffee - I would simply bypass the self-clean function if your Cuisinart has one. Repeat up to 3 times, using a fresh batch of vinegar each time.
(if you have the caraffe-less DCC-2000, then just pour in 4 cups vinegar and 6 cups water).

Then run a full cycle of water. Then run a combo of 12 tsp lemon juice and 12 cups water (or 10 tsp and 10 cups water) to improve the taste.

On your next batch of coffee, use bottled water just to rule out any possibility that your local water supply may be contributing to funny-tasting coffee.

Now your coffee should be tasting fine again.

How can we clean our saeco pot.


White vinegar will work well. After you run the vinegar through, run about 2 pot of water through it to rinse. This should do the trick.
