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.....

After brewing a cup, lights are flashing and it needs to be unplugged to reset to brew


It's time to descale your brewer. Run a full reservoir of pure white vinegar through, and then a full reservoir of water, "brewing" and dumping one cup at a time. You might have to do two reservoirs of vinegar if you've never rescaled it before.

I am interested in purchasing this 6 cup brew station, but all pics I see use travel mugs. Can it be used with regular 10 -12 oz ceramic mugs for home use? How about 6 oz cups that match Corelle...


How does the coffee get into the cup? If it brews directly into the cup then the amount can be controlled by how much water you put into the maker. If it is a 6 cup then it must hold the coffee in a reservoir. Do you have to push and hold a button to dispense the coffee or do you push and wait for it to fill your cup? If it is the latter then it will need to know how large or small the cup size is. Is there a setting for that? If it is a push and hold method then you control the coffee flow so size is up to you. As far as it being a travel mug or ceramic mug as long as the mug will fit in the maker and sit securely under the nozzle then it shouldn't matter what kind of mug it is.

When I run water through the Keurig, it works fine, but the moment I put in a coffee, it balks, sniggers and refuses to brew. I think there must be something wrong with the perforation -- as though it...


Check the needle inside the k-cup reservoir to ensure it is clean and not clogged. You can completely remove the k-cup reservoir by pushing up from the bottom (where it normally dispenses into the cup) and it should pop out easily. Wash it out with hot water and check the needle for any debris. The manufacturer even recommends carefully inserting the tip of a small paper clip into the needles to push out any debris if needed. Then replace the k-cup reservoir by aligning the arrows and snapping it back into place. Lastly, brew a cup of just hot water on the largest brew size without a k-cup. This should further help clean out any debris or obstructions. Then try to brew a new k-cup as usual and see if the problem is corrected. Hope that helps...best of luck!

My brewer will not let me change the brew size.


I had the same problem, contacted Keurig and they suggested the descale procedure, which did not work. 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 cup mixture, and when the reservoir emptied of the mix I unplugged it and let it sit 2 hours with the mix in it 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.
