Question about Keurig 5048 My K-Cup Reuseable Coffee Filter
I had same problem and called Keurig. They advised me that the gasket in the upper portion, where the top needle is needs to be brought down about half way, almost even with the bottom of the top needle. Be careful not to poke yourself. I brewed a cup with the resuable filter assembly and it worked great. It should stay in that position until you use an actual k-cup. When using it will push the gasket back up, as it needs pressure to puncture the hole. To go back to the resuable filter, you will need to lower the gasket again. She advised me that they are working on a fix for this issue and will notify you of any replacement parts, as long as they have your current contact info.

Three things I have done to help the problem you are having. 1- Buy stronger (dark roast) coffee and grind it to espresso setting 2- clean the rubber seal that is around the puncture tube for the top. This seal comes off really easy, just slide it down off of the stainless steel puncture pin. Make sure you know which way it goes back on. 3- When you brew your next cup, push down on the handle as the keurig is brewing until it is finished. Pushing down a little helps that rubber seal do it's job better.
