Mcdevito75 here, sounds like your coffee maker needs cleaning, after 20--30 cups of coffee made it does. Fill the decanter with white vinegar, clean or place new filter in the machine and cycle the white vinegar thru 3 times, on the 3rd time time thru stop the machine for 30 minutes, then resume that cycle. Now clean or replace the filter again and cycle thru regular water 3--4 times the get rid of all the vinegar, machine shouls be fine now.

Why does the water giving out less than a full cup?

WHAT IS A FULL CUP FOR THE MACHINE? Just because "your" cup isn't getting filled up doesn't mean the machine is broke. You may be using too large of a cup.

Why is no water coming through for coffee

What do you use to clean the machine? White vinegar s a good cleaner for coffee machines. I suggest you place half vinigar and half water in machine and run it as usual- maybe a few times with the vinegar and water. Then place some baking soda with water to neutralize the vinegar.

I suggest you use vinegar acid.

You need a solution with half part water and half part vinegar acid.

1) pour 4 cups of water into your coffee machines water tank.

2) pour 4 cups of vinegar acid into your coffee machines water tank.

3) turn on your coffee machine to decalc.

4) refill tank with clean cold water and let it run through ( 2 times)

If you pour water into acid it can explode and make terrible damages and cause chemical burns!!!

Hope this will help ypu

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!

We pour the water into the machine - and it makes noise like it is brewing, but no coffee/water will come out of the machine Then other times it will only brew a half a cup of coffee???

It sounds like it is clogged.
In the manual it explains how to descale with white vinegar. Another thing to do is to take a straightened paper clip and unclog all openings where water goes through. Taking out the k-cup holder and cleaning is also recommended.
Keurig 866-901-2739 will walk you through these steps. They are very nice and this is what I did when I was having trouble with mine.
Good luck.

Water is getting to the k-cup but does not come out unless I take the cup out and turn it around and puncture a second time. clear water runs through with no problem

Hi, W/D here.

Take an ordinary paper clip, and straighten it into an "L", with about 1" on the short side. With the Keurig opened as it would be for inserting a K-cup, locate the upper and lower puncture needles. Take the paper clip and use it to pass into the hollow needles to free up any debris that may have collected in the needles. Be careful, as the needle tips are very sharp. Do the lower needle as well. This should improve the quality of your brew.
Another thing that will help is to de-scale the machine with white vinegar. This is done by emptying the reservoir, and re-filling about half way with white vinegar. Then, brew two cups, which will draw the vinegar into the inner pot. Let the vinegar sit in the machine for several hours, and then empty the reservoir. Refill with clean water, and flush the water through the machine, one cup at a time, until no traces of the vinegar can be detected. This will keep your machine brewing at it's peak performance. Most folks perform this cleaning every six months or so, but you really need to do it according to the quality of your water, that is, use six months as a maximum, and more often if necessary.
Hope this gets your coffee back to just right. I KNOW how important that is!
Best regards, --W/D--

When I pour water into (empty) pot to fill. Bunn coffee maker

If you pour water into the machine, and water comes out, then the reservoir is full of water. There is no way the water can bypass the reservoir and go directly into the pot.

I have a Saeco Vienna Deluxe Model. We have been experiencing water leaking from the machine. It leaks under the tank and floods the counter or leaks into the spent coffee disposal bin. I removed and...


If it leaks under the water tank then you have to replace the gasket in the machine where the water tank inlet are.

If you have a leek inside the door, make sure the hole behind the brewing unit (in the chassis) are clean.

That you get a half cup of coffee one time and a full next time can be the electric board in the machine but can also be the flow meter.

Hope this can help you.
