My Keurig B77 Select shows descale and I have run thru 2 tanks of vinegar and it is still not showing OK. Still shows descale. The cup is not filling completely either. Should I use some other cleaner or call Keurig and send it in?

Water will not run thru coffee maker after descaling


Descaling sometimes results in the scaling that in being removed causing a blockage in the drain system. The best way to resolve this is to run your coffee maker (normal operation); however, rather thanusing water, you should use vinegar. This will dislodge and break up the scaled paricles and allow your coffer maker to function correclty.

I have the Platinum keurig and the water is going back into the reservoir and not into the cup??? is it beyond repair?


Are you getting a message saying to "de-scale" it may need a good cleaning. That's usually the issue & the quickest fix. If the Keurig (or any other coffee maker) gets lime/calcium build up on the internal components it will ignore whatever has been programmed into it & just keep cutting off, keep making partial cups & just not working properly. Run some white vinegar thru it - fill the reservoir with a strong vinegar/water mix, remove any kcups/my kcup filters, also remove the reservoir carbon filter ( fyi - that's not going to eliminate any lime/calcium in your water - it's just to eliminate any bad tastes/odors) and "make" how ever many cups it takes to empty the reservoir.Depending on the build up - you may need to do this 2 or 3 times. Also run about 2 more reservoirs of just clear water to help rinse out the vinegar mix (otherwise your next cup of coffee will not be what you expected).
This may eliminate your problem & should be done every 2-3 mths. If that doesn't solve it - your Keurig may already be too far gone. Good Luck.

Shows that it is ready to brew, but says "de scale"


What model do you have? I'm guessing we are talking coffee maker, is it a Keurig? If you're getting a message saying to "de-scale" it need a good cleaning. That's usually the issue & the quickest fix. If the Keurig (or any other coffee maker) gets lime/calcium build up on the internal components it will ignore whatever has been programmed into it & just keep cutting off or keep making partial cups. Run some white vinegar thru it - fill the reservoir with a strong vinegar/water mix, remove any kcups/my kcup or filters, also remove the reservoir carbon filter ( fyi - that's not going to eliminate any lime/calcium in your water - it's just to eliminate any bad tastes/odors) and "make" how ever many cups it takes to empty the reservoir. Depending on the build up - you may need to do this 2 or 3 times. Also run about 2 more reservoirs of just clear water to help rinse out the vinegar mix (otherwise your next cup of coffee will not be what you expected).
This should eliminate your problem & should be done every 2-3 mths, regardless of whatever the model of coffee maker you have. Good Luck.

My Keurig will not stay on long enough to brew even one cup of coffee. The automatic shut off is on the off position. It only stays on seconds.


When is the last time it was cleaned? That's usually the issue & the quickest fix. If the Keurig gets lime/calcium build up on the internal components it will ignore whatever has been programmed into it & just keep cutting off or keep making partial cups. Run some white vinegar thru it - fill the reservoir with a strong vinegar/water mix, remove any kcups/my kcup, also remove the carbon filter ( fyi - that's not going to eliminate any lime/calcium in your water - it's just to eliminate any bad tastes/odors) and "make" how ever many cups it takes to empty the reservoir.

Regardless of setting, I have not been able to get any more than 1/4 to 1/3 of a cup of coffee. The water barely comes out and now the descale message is on the screen. I need instructions for...


Although this is in "Problem with Vacuums," I found it while searching for a solution to my steam cleaner vacuum problem. You must be talking about a Keurig or Breville-Keurig coffee maker. Tap water, especially chemically softened tap water, contains minerals that require periodic descaling, as often as every two months if you make only a couple of cups a day.

Filling the tank with white vinegar and making multiple large mugs without a Keurig coffee cup in the holder will remove most scale. There are products that claim to do better than white vinegar if this does not work. Amazon sells a couple of brands in its Keurig section.

It will take several tank fulls of clean water to rid the machine of the vinegar or commercial cleaning solution. Use distilled water for this. Then switch to good bottled water without a heavy mineral load.

How do i descale a SWAN iron model no S15030N. CAN I PUT DESCALER INTO WATER STORAGE TANK


The best and cheapest way to descale irons,steamers, etc. is to use white vinegar, mixed 1 cup to a quart of water. Pour in the iron and allow to steam. The vinegar will dissolve the calcium, which is the blocking scale. Do this a few times toensure that the holes are clear and operating correctly. For the last rinse, put a little lemon into plain water and allow to steam. This gets rid of any vinegar smell.

B77 Keurig coffee maker won't dispense coffee if k cup is in holder. Help?


I had the same problem with my Keurig coffee maker. The needle is clean, and no deposits. Above the needle is a check valve. This is a simple fix. Open the K-cup arm and look up, in front of the needle housing is two silverish screws. Remove them and lower the arm but don't lock. Slide the black top cover out to expose supply hose and check valve. Carefully cut the zip tie and remove hose from check valve. Remove the two scres holding the valve in place and drop it down and out. Blow into the end where hose attaches. You should be able to blow thru, with some resistance. If you can't, thats your problem. Take a paper clip and carefully bend and insert into end where hose attaches, pushing ball in valve down alittle. Blow into it again, you should be able to now. If not, keep trying, it will go. When done re-assemble and run a cup of water, with out cup to clean it. Hope this helps ya!

My keurig coffee maker is going really slow all of a sudden .. why would that normally happen


sometimes they become partially blocked and the best thing to do is run a quarter cup of vinegar mixed with a full pot of water through it empty and repeat if necessary. This will help to clean the tubes out of any residue and help to put it back to normal,
Be sure to run a pot or two of just water through it after the vinegar to rinse it clean of vinegar.
