You can try to udjust the grinder one step + to more gross coffee. With this the water can run faster through the grounded coffee. However you nust count the time since the corect time is about 25 sec.
If the grinding adjustment can not make any cange then you need clean the shower which is on the coffee group since it might be full of dry coffee blocking the way of the water passing by.
Good luck

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!

I ran the coffe machine out of water while making a cup of coffee and now the coffee machine wont make coffee. It sounds like the system is trying to **** water through, but doesnt.


Not too sure sort of same issue on last machine i descaled it and it worked on this one not so lucky so looking for answers too, if you often descale your machine then it wont be this if you havent descaled it for some time, then this could well be your issue, pending on how knowlagable you are, you can take to bits, put CRC or neat descaler into the tubes, there is a little spring clip type of holder you need to take out before removing small tube, use a serynge and squirt some neat descaler into tube and if possible where it came out of, few time before my main issue was at the front water dispenser part, so if you can undo a tube from the furthest point from this then put in descaler attach tube again, put back to gether leave for a little to get through then turn on and try to get hot water out, if so the coffee side will probably work too, but before you have a cup fully descale the machine and rinse through a few times then try a cup

Blinking descale how do I do this


Run 3 cups of white vinegar then 3 cups of water through it

Keurig only brews about 2-3 oz. of coffee.


Doesn't sound like a descaler issue. I am having problems with mine and noticed that water is flowing back into the reservoir when it is pouring into the coffee cup. I think there is a valve that is not closing properly.

Slow coffee stream and smaller brew size with B70


I had the same problem, contacted Keurig and they suggested the descale procedure, which did nothing. The brew size was very small, the display would not let me select the size, and water was being pushed back into the reservoir. I was able to resolve the problem however.
First I went through a gallon of white vinegar, without results. Then I did the following:
Went to Walmart and bought "Brew Rite". Tried 8 cup mixture (8 cups of water, two tablespoons of mix), did not work. Being persistant, put in another 8 cups, and when the reservoir was empty of the solution let sit 2 hours while unplugged and then put in clear water. By the time I got half way through with the clear water, the device started working properly, no problems since. This may work for you...

Red descale light is on


I use distilled white vinegar, but you can use specialized coffee cleaners with this model:

Descaling
Descaling 11
Descale your Tassimo machine every three months to keep it
operating at full potential.
1
Descaling products are widely available from stores selling coffeemakers and espresso
machines. Only use a product intended for descaling. Mix the descaling product
directly in the water container, following the instructions provided on the descaling
packaging. Replace the water container on the machine.
2 Place a large cup or mug on the cup stand, insert the cleaning disc, bar code down,
and close the brew mechanism. When the AUTO light illuminates, press and release
the start/stop button. The brew cycle will fill the machine with descaling solution. Empty
the cup and let the machine stand for 15 minutes.
3 Open the brew mechanism and close it again, leaving the cleaning disc in place.
When the AUTO light illuminates, press and release the start/stop button. When the
machine stops running, empty the cup, and let the machine stand for 15 minutes.
Repeat this step two more times for maximum descaling effectiveness. Discard the
remaining descaling agent from the water container, rinse it thoroughly and refill
with fresh, cold water.
4 Open and close the brew mechanism again, leaving the cleaning disc in place.
When the AUTO light illuminates, press and hold the start/stop button to flush water
through the machine. The MANUAL light will flash. When the cup is full, release the
start/stop button, empty the cup, and replace it on the cup stand.
5 Repeat step 4, flushing clean water through the machine in the same manner and
emptying the cup as it fills. To ensure that all the descaling solution is completely rinsed
away, flush two full water containers through the machine before using it again.

Hello,

I assume your coffe maker used to produce more coffee for each use. Roughly 6 ounces per large cup, and now is only making 3 oz. cups.

If your coffee maker is sputtering and not able to "suck" enough water to fill your cups of coffee it is most likely due to cavitation caused in the little pump due to a stoppage, which is most likely lime or scale buildup somewhere in the pump line.

To fix it, don't take your coffee maker apart. Get a bottle of distilled white vinegar, and pour it straight into the empty water resevoir. Press brew with no coffee pod so you are just running the vinegar through the system. Pour the vinegar out of the cup and back into the resevoir. Add some ice to cool it off. Repeat about 10 times. This should clear out the toughest lime scale clog.

After you notice the cups are filling full of water, Replace the vinegar with fresh water. Run about 5 or 6 cups of fresh water through the system to get rid of the vinegar.

Make coffee/tea/whatever.
