I had the same problem, contacted Keurig and they suggested the descale procedure, which did not work. I was able to resolve the problem however.
First I went through a gallon of white vinegar, without results. Then I did the following:
Went to Walmart and bought "Brew Rite". Tried 8 cup mixture (8 cups of water, two tablespoons of mix), did not work. Being persistant, put in another 8 cups, let sit 2 hours and then put in clear water. By the time I got half way through with the clear water, the device started working properly, no problems since.

My cuisinart kcup coffee maker is filling the cup slow and not completely full. I cleaned with white vinegar several weeks ago . Do you have a suggestion


Doesn't brew a full cup.
Every once in a while an air bubble may get trapped in the water path. Lift off the reservoir, then put it back into place.
Turn off and unplug the brewer for 30 seconds or more. When you plug the brewer back in, be sure to turn the power back on.
The exit needle may be clogged (refer to "Cleaning & Maintenance" page 18).
Clean the K-Cup® holder brewing chamber (refer to "Cleaning & Maintenance"
page 18).
Make sure the water reservoir is properly in place, and perform a Rinse cycle.
De-scale the Brewer (refer to page 20).
If you have repeated the de-scale procedure two times and it is still only brewing a
partial cup, contact Customer Service at 1-800-726-0190.

Coffee maker will not make but one size cup


If your 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 may need to be de-scaled. Please refer to the de-scaling 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.
First try to make a descale maybe repeat it the next day.

We have just descaled our Platinum unit and reset all the functions. When attempting to make a cup of coffee, it says it is brewing, but NOTHING is happening. What do we do?

I lost my manual. How do I de-scale? Does this not allow you to brew a cup until it has been de-scaled?


From http://www.keurig.com/customer-service/brewer-registration-and-support/~/media/Files/Keurig%20Brewer%20Manuals/De-scaling_instructions.ashx
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. NOTE: If "DE-SCALE" is still displayed after completing the procedure, repeat the de-scaling procedure above.

Sorry to read about your issue.

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

Sometimes will not brew even though it says it is brewing, then when pushed again, gives out too much. Other times gives only an inch in the cup at a time.
