Coffee maker won't work. says it needs to be de-scaled.


De-scaling is normally done through the use of vinegar. I prefer the white vinegar myself. This is simple. Instead of water, place a quart of vinegar in your water tank and no coffee grounds in the basket. Start the cycle. When it is all done, repeat with ordinary clear water, again no grounds in the basket. When this cycle is completed. if yours is a integrated tank, turn the coffee maker up side down to remove all liquid. Refill and enjoy your freshly de-scaled coffee maker.

Presto - de-scaled.

I trust you will find this solution adequate. Thank you for your interest in FixYa.com

De-Scale Keurig coffee units


<br /><br />The brewer should be de-scaled at least every 3-6 months. Scale is harmless, but if left unattended, it can hinder optimal brewer performance. De-scaling your brewer regularly helps maintain the heating element, removable water reservoir and other parts of the brewer that come in contact with water. Better water quality and water heating means a better cup of coffee, tea, hot cocoa or iced beverage. We recommend de-scaling your brewer at least every 6 months (every 3 months if your water has a high mineral content). The de-scaling process involves using 48 ounces of undiluted white vinegar.<br /><br />Take 48 oz of white vinegar. place in tank. pretend you are making coffee (Do No Use K Cup). let the water fill you mug. then empty that mug. Do it again until tank is empty. then let sit for 4 hours.<br />Then fill with fresh water to the top. let that tank of water run thru. towards the end taste the water.<br />If you taste vinegar..use more clean water, until the taste is ok.<br /><br /><br />

There used to be enough steam to froth milk for 2 cups of coffee, now I have to turn the knob off, to let the machine build up steam 3 times too get enough froth for 1 cup of coffee.


This a
clear problem from scale builds up in the boiler. The scale layer is acting as
an insulation layer which is reducing the efficiency of the heating element to
the boiler and also reducing the water capacity thus also the steam production
capacity.



So you
should first try to de-scale your machine three four times with intervals of
three days from each de-scale. Try also to perform the de-scale very slowly
like when you will flash the water solution from the water reservoir take about
30 minutes why drawing a coffee cup every five minutes. With this way you have
very good chance to remove a lot of scale and you machine heating efficiency to
be increased. If after the above procedure you have no difference then you need
a new boiler which is one unit with elements and sensor.



Here below we
have a link with more information for your machine which can help you.

What does de-scale mean?


To de-scale anything in relation to water means to remove the mineral scale buildup on the walls or where ever. That's the usually white chalky stuff that you might see around nozzles etc. Follow yu manuals instructions to de-scale. Usually involving white vinegar, or possibly a product like CLR for removing minerals and rust stains. I AM NOT SAYING TO USE CLR IN YOUR MACHINE, just indicating an example of a product that manages mineral scale. Read the manual to do it correctly.

Water will not pass through....


Hi,

I teied to find an answer for you and went to their website. Theys ay that the brewer needs to be descaled. The link below will bring you to thier site and I also pasted the excerpt below. It should still be under warranty too I think if you have only had it for six months. I pasted their number below.

http://www.keurig.com/help/faq.asp#brewer10


De-Scaling Your Brewer:
Mineral content in water varies from place to place. Depending on the mineral content of the water in your area, calcium deposits or scale may build up in your Brewer. Scale is non-toxic, but left unattended, it can hinder Brewer performance. De-scaling your Brewer helps maintain the heating element and other internal parts of the Brewer that come in contact with water. The Brewer should be de-scaled every 3-6 months to ensure optimal performance or when there are white deposits in the Cold Water Reservoir. It is possible for calcium deposits to build up faster, making it necessary to de-scale more often. Please reference your Brewer’s Owner’s Manual for specific de-scaling instructions.
