Everytime I put in Keurig pods in my keurig I get coffee grounds in my coffee cup and all over the coffee pot.

If cleaning the puncture pin hole doesn’t work, and you have thoroughly cleaned out your machine, look at the bottom of the particular K-cup you are using. Many of them have an indent in the bottom, and these cause an issue, allowing rounds to escape. Unfortunately, this particular type is not always compatible.

Brews one or two cups then puts ground in coffee

If you are using the "store bought" Keurig brand K cups for making coffee in the machine, you may just need to clean it by running several "cups" of just water - NO K cup - thru it, into a large white cup. This will NOT hurt the machine, but will clean out most residual grounds in it. The white cup will show you what comes out. Then hold the machine over the sink and using the sink sprayer, open the lid, pop out the K cup holder and spray hot water down thru the opening where the K cup holder sits, then wipe everything you can reach, top and from below, inside and out, with a damp dish towel over one finger. Then clean the K cup holder with hot water and an old toothbrush and reinstall it. EZ.

If this doesn't completely fix the problem, check the soft black rubber (neoprene) seal that fits around the top puncture needle inside and under the lid that comes down over the K cup when you close it to brew. You can't see this part very well, but you can feel it with fingers easily. It is about 3/4" in diameter, maybe 1/4" thick and just slides on over and around the top needle. (there is a bottom needle in the K cup holder, too) If this seal is damaged or missing, that's the problem. It needs to be cleaned every few months anyway, just pop it out, rinse it and replace it. EZPZ.

Now, if you are doing the "load your own coffee" aftermarket plastic cups, the problem may be the refillable cup. But you need to do the cleaning steps outlined above anyway. There are a variety of these, I have them all and use my favorite ones. Some of these plastic cups will deform over time and not seal against the seal described in the paragraph above. If this is the problem, do all the above plus replace the refillable cup. Try a different kind this time.

These machines are very well designed and made. The inside of these coffee machines are CRAMMED FULL of tubes, valves, wires, pumps, a boiler, and electronics. They are NOT designed to be repaired, just replaced. But the above cleaning should be done on every one of them every few months and they will last for years.

Why wont my keurig maker make a strong, dark cup of coffee like my regular coffee maker

Make sure both nozzles are clean. One is in the top and one in the removable bottom. Ream them with a paper clip to make sure they are clear.

I have B60... I have descaled it twice wit vinegar... water is coming out although not as fast as it should. Descaling light still on... what should I do?

Vinegar is really not good for cleaning coffee machines.

You should rather use acetic acid.

1) put 4 cups of water into the coffee makers tank.

2) pour 4 cups of acetic acid also in the coffee makers tank.

WARNING !!! ALWAYS pour ACID into WATER and NOT the opposite !!!

If you pour water into acid, it can explode and cause severe damages !!!

3) Let it run through the coffee maker.

4) pour hereafter water in the tank and let it run through 2 times.

If this does not help to decalc your coffee maker, it is time for a new coffee machine.

Good luck

I suggest you use vinegar acid.

You need a solution with half part water and half part vinegar acid.

1) pour 4 cups of water into your coffee machines water tank.

2) pour 4 cups of vinegar acid into your coffee machines water tank.

3) turn on your coffee machine to decalc.

4) refill tank with clean cold water and let it run through ( 2 times)

If you pour water into acid it can explode and make terrible damages and cause chemical burns!!!

Hope this will help ypu

I have a Solis Palazzo machine. My question is:

HI When was the last time you descaled? This can have a temp lowering effect if you don't descale on a regular basis. Program you water hardness so its set on 4. This will tell you when you have to descale. Descals is not the same as cleaning. Its a special acid that disolves the deposits inside the boiler.

K cup explodes

This happened to me with a B30. I called and they had me clean everything out thoroughly. at the very end the tech support lady explained the issue is with the kcups themselves. the ones with bulging tops have extra air in them that causes problems when brewing.

Keeps flashing 12:00

I just kept plugging and unplugging the coffee pot. Eventually, the clock stopped blinking, the buttons worked, and all was well.
