Either it is scaled up and needs to be cleaned or the air pump is bad.

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!

SOURCE: My keurig won't brew a full cup for the 10oz

This sounds like a water level sensor inside the unit. If it's under warranty... call Keurig and they might send a replacement... out of warranty requires you to open the unit and re-seat the harness that comes off of the water level array into a circuit board... low voltage thing...taking it apart is not easy, but I have explained it in another answer... for a B70 unit...

SOURCE: Keurig B60 is real slow , displays brewing for 30 sec.

mcdevito75 here, It may need to be cleaned, water used to brew coffee leaves deposits in the brewing holes and must be cleaned every once in a while. Refer to the owners manual on cleaning the coffee maker.

My Keurig only brews a part cup


Most likely you need to change the filter and descale it as well.

I use a CleanCup once a month:
https://www.amazon.com/CleanCup-Single-Machine-Cleaning-Capsules/dp/B00E0QAS34/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1480095410&sr=8-1&keywords=keurig+cleaner+cup

I change the filter once every 3 months:

And I descale it every time I change the filter using this:
http://www.keurig.com/Accessories/Keurig%C2%AE-Descaling-Solution/p/Keurig-Descaling-Solution

Otherwise, the tubing is going to get clogged up in your machine and produce smaller and smaller cups of coffee, not to mention, when you keep your machine clean, your coffee will always taste its best!

Hope this helps!

My Keurig B40 has three different size cup sizes available, but it dispenses the same amount of water for the medium size cup and the large cup of coffee. It's barely been used so It doesn&am


I realize you think it does not need descaling to to it 'not being used much.'
However you may have hard water and I would think descaling is definitely worth a try. There might be scale built up on the water level probes in you machine.

Descaling Details are listed below:

Brewer Model: Elite B40 ' Classic B44
Special Edition B60 ' Platinum B70

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.

Regardless of setting, I have not been able to get any more than 1/4 to 1/3 of a cup of coffee. The water barely comes out and now the descale message is on the screen. I need instructions for...


Although this is in "Problem with Vacuums," I found it while searching for a solution to my steam cleaner vacuum problem. You must be talking about a Keurig or Breville-Keurig coffee maker. Tap water, especially chemically softened tap water, contains minerals that require periodic descaling, as often as every two months if you make only a couple of cups a day.

Filling the tank with white vinegar and making multiple large mugs without a Keurig coffee cup in the holder will remove most scale. There are products that claim to do better than white vinegar if this does not work. Amazon sells a couple of brands in its Keurig section.

It will take several tank fulls of clean water to rid the machine of the vinegar or commercial cleaning solution. Use distilled water for this. Then switch to good bottled water without a heavy mineral load.

My keurig coffee maker is flashing the words DE SCALE. What does that mean and how do I fix it?


"Scale" is deposits of minerals, etc. normally found in water. Boiling a container of water (in a pot, or coffee maker in this case), leaves small amounts or "deposits" of these minerals on and near the actual heat source. If not removed, they can slow brewing time and more importantly, adversely affect the taste of coffee.

Descaling should be done at regular intervals to prevent this from happening. Your machine lets you know when to perform the descaling task. There are a number of products sold in your supermarket that will do this for you - but one of the least expensive; and just as effective - is to use white vinegar. Here's how to do it:

1) Drain your Keurig coffee machine over a sink.
2) Fill the machine with undiluted white vinegar.
3) Run the brew process at least four times, pouring the cups of vinegar back into the coffee maker.
4) Optionally, let your Keurig coffee maker sit for a few hours, then run the brew cycles again. Pour the vinegar into the sink and drain any remaining vinegar.
5) Fill your coffee maker with fresh water. Run multiple brew cycles with fresh water each time to thoroughly rinse the machine before returning to normal use.

That's it!

I know this will help & good luck. Please rate my reply - thanks!
