If you lift the handle and look up inside it looks like a thick metal needle. The Kcup holder snaps apart easily and you can see the needle once it comes apart. You can clean clogs out of both with a paper clip.

SOURCE: Keurig starts & stops without brewing coffee, just descaled

The pic is clogged with coffee or the air bladder is bad. Use the tool on the underside of the tray to clean out pic. If that doesn't work, the bladder will be bad.

Doesn't sound like a descaler issue. I am having problems with mine and noticed that water is flowing back into the reservoir when it is pouring into the coffee cup. I think there is a valve that is not closing properly.

Sorry to read about your issue. plus you may have a bad k kups

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.

I tried to help you. Please help me and Vote/Rate this response. Thanks and good luck

Why does my Keurig smoke when brewing coffee, and the water doesn't go through until I take out the cup?


You probably have a clogged nozzle/needle. Take a straightened paperclip and run it thru the hollow needles that puncture the top and bottom of the k-cup. Make sure they are clear then try to brew a cup. Never reuse a k-cup. That's what usually clogs the needles.

Why cant I get a full cup of coffee


Brewing a Partial Cup
If the brewer is not brewing the full amount selected, it may be caused by the following:
  • The exit needle is clogged by coffee grounds or cocoa mix. Please refer to the K-Cup Holder cleaning instructions.
  • The brewer needs to be descaled. Please refer to the descaling instructions.
  • The removable water reservoir was removed during brewing. Place the water reservoir back onto the brewer and perform a cleansing brew without a K-Cup pack.

Water leaking not just comming out of spout


Sounds like your water outlet is clogged. Open the head and push up the cup holder to remove. When out, clean out the tube at the bottom of the holder with a paper clip or something similar (I use a cake tester - long skinny metal rod. This will clean out any clogs in the output path. Also remove the bottom part of the cup holder and clean it too. Put back together and place back in brew head the way it came out. (Caution - some models you have to twist the cup holder to remove, and some it just comes straight out). There are many you-tube videos that will show you this also.

Keurig drips too slow


The exit needle is located on the inside bottom of the K-Cup Holder. If coffee grounds or cocoa mix gets clogged in the exit needle, it can be cleaned using a paper clip or similar tool. Remove the funnel from the K-Cup Holder, insert the paper clip into the tube and move it around to loosen the clog and remove any debris. Please note, you cannot poke all the way through the needle as the opening of the needle is located on the side and not the top.After cleaning, align the K-Cup Holder tabs with the opening placing the two front tabs on the bottom and the single tab on top and snap it into place by pushing down on the top rim.

We bought a Kurig Mini at this past Christmas. The machine worked great for about 4 months then the Kcups started exploding in the machine and coffee grounds would go into the brewed cup. Then the...


Mine has been doing the same thing.  I alkso received one at Chriustmas and it worked great for a few months.  Below is the answer I received from Keurig:

 

It is possible that the needle that penetrates the K-Cup has become clogged.  Please follow these simple steps to clean it:

Turn off the brewer and unplug it.

Reach under the nozzle (where the coffee comes out) and press up on the bottom of the funnel.  The K-Cup holder will pop out.               

Separate the K-Cup holder into two pieces.  The top piece of the K-Cup holder is where the exit needle is located.

Use a paper clip to clear the exit needle by putting the paper clip in the tube on the underside of the holder. Be careful, the exit needle is sharp.

Wash the K-Cup holder with soap and water, rinse thoroughly.  Also make sure the drawer is clean.

Put K-Cup holder back into the drawer, making sure it snaps into place.

Plug the brewer in and turn on.

Run two cleansing brews (brew without a K-Cup) through the machine, and then brew a cup of coffee.

If you still find grinds in your coffee, it would be best for you to talk to a representative to help troubleshoot your problem and discuss your options.  This could be caused by too much pressure sealed inside the K-Cup or the filter alignment may be off.  Please contact our customer service department at 1-866-901-BREW (2739).  Representatives are available 7 days a week from 7 a.m. – 12:00 Midnight EST to assist you.  Please have the serial number of your brewer available for when you call. 

The serial number for the Mini is located on the bottom of the brewer on a silver sticker.

For the Classic, Ultimate and Select, is located on a sticker behind the drip tray. 

For the Elite, Ultra, Special Edition and Platinum it may be located either on the bottom of the brewer on a white sticker or, behind the drip tray.

My Keurig B60, 1 month old is not brewing enough coffee


Check the needle inside the k-cup holder to ensure it isn't clogged. You can completely remove the k-cup holder and rinse it out using your kitchen sprayer to help loosen any debris stuck inside the needle. The needle is what punctures the k-cup and extracts the coffee from within the cup and can become clogged. Make sure when you replace the k-cup holder, that you align the arrows and snap the top or arrow-side in first. If simply rinsing your k-cup holder and needle don't do the trick, try inserting the end of a small paper clip into the needle to push out any remaining debris. This technique is actually recommended by the manufacturer, so it won't void any warranty or damage the needle. After replacing the k-cup holder back into the machine, try brewing a cup of coffee to see if it did the trick.

As a side-note, if you regularly use any "Hot Cocoa" k-cups, you need to make sure and immediately brew a cup of just hot water (no k-cup) to help clean it out and prevent the needles from clogging. The Hot Cocoa k-cups are notorious for clogging the needles up thus causing the problem you described above.

Hope that helps...best of luck!
