  • Turn off the Keurig coffee maker, and unplug the power cord. Allow the unit to cool for 30 minutes before emptying the water. This gives the water inside the hot water tank an opportunity to cool, helping to prevent accidental scalding when emptying.
  • Pull the lid off the top of the water reservoir. Lift the water reservoir straight up and to the right of the coffee maker. Pour out any remaining water in the reservoir into the sink.
  • Turn the small thumb screw on the back of the Keurig coffee maker counterclockwise with your fingers, and pull off the rear access panel. If the screw is too tight to turn with your fingers, use a flat-head screwdriver to turn the screw. Once you remove the access panel, a tube with a plug on the end is visible. Pull the tube out of the plastic clip holder.
  • Place a large pitcher behind the coffee maker. Hold the end of the tube over the pitcher, and pull the plug out of the tube. Allow the water to drain into the pitcher. If necessary, maneuver the coffee maker to the edge of the counter, and hold the pitcher alongside the counter with the top at counter level.
  • Push the plug back into the end of the tube once no more water drains from the hot water tank. Empty the pitcher of water into the sink, and push the tube back into the plastic clip holder. Position the back access panel onto the coffee maker and secure with the thumb screw knob.

      Thank you for your answer Dave. Your answer is the only one that has been helpful. All others said the water in the main tank cannot be emptied and must be stored with the water still in it. This made no sense to me. Again, thank you for your answer.

    Empty water light, empty condenser


    I experienced the problem with a hotpoint TCYM 750, with the red empty water light failing to switch off. After removing the filter and cleaning it, cleaning the condenser and drying anywhere I had access to the machine still didn't heat and the light remained on. Reading the post about the machine having 3 reservoirs it struck me that one of the reservoirs may be hard to access. So I unplugged the machine and tipped it onto its front. The reservoir drained, I pushed the machine back upright and cleared up some water around the condenser. The drier now works properly and the empty water light is off - job done!

    Recalls on keurig


    Empty the reservoir of any water. Fill it back up with white vinegar. Get a paper clip and poke it up in to the needle that the water comes out of on the top of the lid. Run the vinegar through the machine until the reservoir is empty. You can even let the vinegar sit in the coffee maker for 10-15 minutes. Refill reservoir with purified water and run the maker until all the water is dispensed and the reservoir is empty. There should be no more vinegar smell. Never use tap water. Do this every two months. Note: if the area where the K-Cup sits gets dirty with grounds, put a large bowl under it and then pour a glass of water over the whole area to clean. Also, on occasion just run a cup of water through the machine (with no coffee) just to make sure that there are no grounds caught in the needle. Done!

    When I pour water into (empty) pot to fill. Bunn coffee maker


    If you pour water into the machine, and water comes out, then the reservoir is full of water. There is no way the water can bypass the reservoir and go directly into the pot.

    Water left in steamer - need to clean clear tank


    I'm willing to try this to clean the mold out of the steamer container and possibly the rest of the attachments:
    1. Empty the water reservoir completely. 2. Place 20 mL of CLR or bleach into the reservoir. 3. Fill the reservoir with hot water. 4. Shake the reservoir to mix and let stand for about 1 hour. 5. Empty the reservoir completely. 6. Rinse the reservoir 3 or 4 times with cold water. 7. Fill the reservoir with distilled water. 8. Run the steamer into the ventilated air a couple of times to ensure that there is no CLR or bleach residue on the evaporation elements. Thus, there will be no bleach on your cloths.
    I have the same problem and will try this out tomorrow. I will tell you how it turns out.

    HOTPOINT AQUARIUS CONDENSER TUMBLE DRYER CTD40


    There are three water reservoirs - one at the bottom behind the condenser, a second at the back bottom of the machine and then a third at the top which is the one you would normally pull out to empty.

    There is a hole at the bottom of the filter in the first reservoir (at the back of the condenser) which leads to the second reservoir at the back. If the hole gets clogged up with lint/muck then the reservoir at the back does not fill up.

    So to solve this, unplug the machine, take out the condenser (front left bottom of the machine) reach through to the back and mop up the spare water with a towel and check that the hole to the back reservoir - you can feel this it is towards the right side at the back of the machine is clear from muck.

    Once you have cleared it, water will flow to the second reservoir and then (once you switch on the machine) up to the main removeable reservoir at the top.

    Hopefully this helps. GB

    Descaling


    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.
