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.

When I put a k-cup in and it brews the coffee, it leaves coffe grounds all over the top of the k-cup and in the holder area and I get some in my coffee, it looks like the top needle is making too big of...


Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.
I would follow the cleaning list below, I an addition you may have a bad batch of k-cups
plus just run some hot water, with out a kcup in the holder.

  1. Remove the K-Cup assembly
    To remove the assembly from the brewer, open the cover by lifting the handle. Grasp the top of the K-Cup Holder with one hand while pushing up on the bottom of the assembly from underneath with the other until it releases. The K-Cup Holder is dishwasher safe.
  2. Clean the Funnel
    The Funnel can be removed from the K-Cup Holder by pulling on it until it snaps off. The Funnel is dishwasher safe. To replace it just snap it back onto the K-Cup Holder.
  3. Clean the exit needle
    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.
  4. Install the K-Cup assembly into the brewer
    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.

I broke the peice that puts water through the coffee basket on a Keurig Elite B40 Coffee Maker where can I buy parts for this?


If you are talking about the K-cup holder that punches the bottom of the k-cups, they usually are not for sale, and you can only find them on ersale sites like Ebay.etc...
you could also go buy a "Keurig My K-Cup Reusable Coffee Filter"
and just use the main grey plastic filter holder... but you will have to puncture the bottom of the k-cups yourself before dropping them into the holder...
You wont need the filter basket or the lid if your using k-cups... just the filter holder...

dont forget to punch a hole in the k-cup first...

My keurig will not dispense right amt of water


Try brewing a cup without a K-cup in it on the largest cup button (will brew just hot water). This will help clean it out in the event it is clogged. If that doesn't work, completely remove the K-cup holder where the needles are (careful not to get **** ) by pushing up from the bottom and rinse using hot water, preferably with a sink sprayer if you have one. Sometimes the needle can get clogged, especially if you ever use the hot cocoa K-cups, so the manufacturer recommends brewing a "blank" cup of just hot water after each hot cocoa K-cup brewed. Hope that helps...Best of luck!

Directions on how to use my Black and Decker Espresso Mio coffee maker


Be sure the red rubber gasket is in place and clean (ridge side in) and bottom water cup is screwed firmly on to avoid leaking.
HOW TO USE:
1) Fill the bottom water cup with cold water up to the inside lip.
2) Set funnel into bottom water cup
3) Fill coffee basket with expresso grind coffee and level off. (Do not tamp or pack). Make sure it's filled to the top.
4) Place filter onto coffee basket and set coffee basket into funnel
5) Place brewer over bottom water cup and screw firmly into place.
6) Place unit with lid in the center of a microwave oven set on high for 1-1/2 minutes. If boil over occurs, reduce the brew time in 10-second increments until no boil over occurs.
7) Grasp handle to remove unit from microwave when finished brewing.
8) Remove lid and check the level of espresso in the brewer cup. Standard brew is at least 2 oz. If you don't have this level brew, replace lid and microwave on high another 10 seconds. Wait 20-30 seconds for bubbling to stop.
CLEANING/ADDITIONAL BREWING:
1. Under cold running water, unscrew the bottom water cup. CAUTION: It is normal for some water to be left in the bottom water cup. Both the coffee basket and any water in the bottom water cup will be extremely hot! If you prefer, allow the unit to cool for at least 3 minutes before unscrewing it.
2) To brew additional espresso, rinse Funnel, coffee basket and filter, then repeat brewing steps 1-8 above.
3) Parts are top rack dishwasher-safe -- hand washing filter is recommended.
