My Keurig will only drip water when brewing. I've descaled, changed the filter, machine is only year and a half old.


#1. Use the paper clip trick on both top and bottom punchers. The holes are in the side of the punchers. (lots of video in youtube) #2. Descale it again with vinegar and leave it for 15-24 hrs before brew rinsing, (instead of 4 hours as mentioned on the manual) #3 some said, turning it upside down and giving it a shake, #4. visibly check the screen on the the water reservoir tank entrance clean if there's any visible clog. #5 Still having a problem, then, for the last resort, before deciding on replacing the diaphragm pump, open the bottom metal part (5 screws), inspect for any visible drip of water (accumulation of white hard water stains, or discoloration on the metal) visualize where it's coming from. Mine is on 2 areas--from the diaphragm pump (where there's 3 black screws) and where the connection of the main pump to the reservoir. This is good news, it means nothing wrong with the pumps. it's just been leaking a little bit of water on the connection (must be air tight, any leak will decrease the pressure). The common sense FIX: depress the metal clamp and pull the plastic tube out, clean the inside and the connection and re-attach it back making sure the little leak will stop. same with the other one then, then replace the other smaller tube with a new tie wrap and make sure it's air tight. Basically you just check all the hose connections make sure it's air tight..

Sounds like a cleaning problem. Mix 1/2 vinegar and 1/2 water pout into machine and brew,WITHOUT K CUP! Do 5-6 x's and then brew plain water to rinse vinegar out. Do this several times. Should be ready to go.

No water comes out on ventilate. At first, the water was coming out very slowly, in drips. The doser or grind were not the problem, because even when I switched to Hot Water, it was still dripping. ...


Hi
It should take about 45 minutes to an hour to properly descale the machine. If it only took a couple of minutes you really didn't descale your machine. If you used the powder it has to disolve completly before descaling. The best way to descale is with the descaler in the tank. Turn on the machine and run about 8 ozs of water-descaler through the wand and then turn off the machine. Wait 10 minutes and repeatthe last procedure. Do this until the tank is empty. When done with the descaler, rinse out the tank and put fresh water in the tank and run the whole tank through the wand. Then fill the tank and your ready to go.

How to descale Philips HD 4651/C Electric Water Kettle


Not having received any solution message from FIXYA contributors, I consulted with a family member
and also my long held Time-Life Books, Fix It Yourself Library, Volume: Cleaning & Stain Removal,
ISBN: 0-8094-7400-X, Copyright 1990. My issue was resolved by using white vinegar and soaking the internal problem area for 30 minutes. The appliance has cleaned up like new and works fantastic. I apologize for bothering you.

Cleaning the Machine
- Never wash your espresso machine accessories in the dishwasher.


After use, the water container must be emptied.

• Drip tray
This must be emptied after using the appliance by taking off the grid See figure (19)below. If several espressos are being prepared one after the other, the drip tray should be emptied from time to time (about once every 7 - 8 espressos). The presence of water is normal and does not signify a leak. If necessary, clean the drip tray and its grid with water and a little non-abrasive washing-up liquid, rinse and dry. When reassembling the machine, ensure that the plastic lining is in the right place See figure (20) below.


• The brewing head, the filter basket and the filter holder


These must be cleaned after each use. All you need to do is wipe a damp cloth over the brewing head of your appliance and to wash the other accessories in water and a little non-abrasive dishwashing liquid, rinse and dry. If the brewing head is heavily clogged up, unscrew the grid using a coin, clean it and refit it, pressing down firmly See figure (21)below.
When your espresso machine is not being used, do not leave the filter holder in the appliance to prevent wear on the gasket.


• The cup warming plate: remove this to clean it with water and a little non-abrasive dishwashing liquid, rinse and dry.


• The cappuccino accessory


For more thorough cleaning the cappuccino accessory can be dismantled from the appliance.


Descaling

Descalling (SIC) is necessary to keep your espresso machine running efficiently.

As a result descaling of your espresso machine should be done fairly frequently
with citric or tartaric acid.

• Use caution when descaling your espresso machine as the acid substance within the descaling powder may damage countertops or any other surface it comes in contact with.

However, we would advise you to use the reference solution as W F054 that is available from Krups. Descaling depends on the hardness of the water, but also on the frequency of use.


To descale, follow the following method:


• Unscrew the grid from the brewing head of the appliance and clean it See figure (21)below.
• Dissolve a packet of KRUPS descaling solution in 17 oz1510 ml of lukewarm water and pour the whole batch into the empty water container.
• Place a container under the brewing head. Run through about 1/3 of the liquid immediately, setting the selector to the position See figure (9)below.
• Stop the appliance, leaving the position See figure (9)below engaged and wait for 10 - 15 minutes to allow the descaler to take effect.
• Next, start the machine again and allow the rest of the liquid to run through.
• Then rinse with two water containers of fresh water and replace the grid on the head of the appliance (see section on “Cleaning the machine”).


The warranty does not include espresso machines that do not function, or do not function properly, because descaling has not been carried out.
