Using the 1-4 cup setting will help, but that model does not have an actual heating element in the plate - definitely not the right model for someone who likes very hot coffee.

SOURCE: will only brew small cup

Every level is a physical sensor in a clear plastic housing just above the main water heater...
when you select a size, the main pump starts to push water into the heater, and the hot water fills this plastic housing... there are about 7 stainless steel sensors that make contact with the water level... based on what you selected...
without knowing how long you had the unit and the type of water is used... etc.etc. you can try the obvious... run vinegar thru it and see if the unit starts working correctly. replace the water with vinegar and let the vinegar work for a few hours...

Otherwise you are relegated to opening up the unit and resetting the connections... which go intermittent and lose connectivity.
I have a discussion on this site about taking off the black shroud and opening up the panel that has all of the connections that unplug...
those get reseated, and that usually fixed it.....

SOURCE: I have a platinum Keurig coffee maker. I descale

Dear Rschles2,
I too own a Keurig Platinim.. I haven't a solution for your problem but I can tell you that your description of it is right on... I have had the same problem. Every month or two, my Keurig will decide I need a large cup rather than the size I chose. I've found no way to solve it... even unplugging the machine doesn't help. In the end, I remove my Kcup, and let the machine process a large cup of water. After that, it runs perfectly.... well, until the next time the Ghost appears.

Increase the Font Size in Email
Email font size is easily controlled while composing messages, but the messages you receive have been sized by the sender.
Some contacts may be perfectly comfortable writing in size 8, but such text can be a strain on the eyes, even with good reading glasses.
The printed hard copies of email messages with small text are even more difficult to read.
There are a few ways to quickly change font size for ease of reading and better quality print-outs.

Open an email message with particularly small text. Increase the email font size of the text using step 2, 3 or 4.
Click on the "View" selection from the menu bar.
Roll the mouse pointer over the "Zoom" choice.
Click on one of the choices that is greater than 100 percent.
Click "View" and cover "Zoom" to make a larger choice if the first choice does not increase the text size sufficiently.

Click the "View" option on the menu bar. Roll the cursor over the "Text Size" selection.
Choose one of the options that will increase the text size.
For instance, if the current size marked with the dot is "Medium," then click "Larger" or "Largest" to make the print appear bigger.

Use a mouse with a wheel to increase the email font size.
Press and hold the "Ctrl" key while rolling the wheel on the mouse.
The text will shrink as you roll in one direction, and grow bigger as you roll in the other.

Change font size before printing.
Click the "File" option on the menu bar.
Click "Print Preview."
Click the "Size" drop down which may display "100%," or "Shrink to fit."
Select a choice greater than 100 percent to increase text size.
Click the "Print" button to view the results on a hard copy.

Large coffee button only puts out a little bit of coffee

keep holding the button down until the display says serving size. release the button when you are happy with the amount of product. next time it will fill to the same line. someone held the button down too long and programmed it to only dispense a small amount of coffee.

The machine does not make a full serving. I will push the largest serving and the machine will produce 4 oz or so.

Small servings...

I purchased the new 'larger sized' portions of coffee (Maxwell house unfortunatley) and it seems to be a regular decent size cup, I know what you mean about the portion control w/ the espresso 'shooters', but there is no way I know of to adjust the output other than the manual override after the auto cycle.
