In my experience it is not possible to make good tea with a coffee maker.

Tea needs to soak. 2 minutes for weak tea or if you like it like me 5 minutes for strong tea.

Coffee makers simply run hot water over the bean powder and don't soak it long enough.

SOURCE: platinum B70 keurig coffee maker water heats up

1. Power off machine.

2. Using a metal paperclip, insert it into left side of top needle. It must insert at least 1" deep. Insert it into slot on right side and again from back of needle.

3. Remove KCup cradle. Separate bottom from top. In the top section, insert the paperclip up into bottom needle from the bottom upwards. It will not go all the way thru and this is normal.

4. Reassemble KCup cradle and reinsert it back into coffee maker.

5. Power on machine.

6. Brew a cup of water only. There may be coffee grounds in the water and these should eventually clear during the remaining steps. NOTE: A large cup brew cycle should output a full 8 ounces (235cc). Less means there is still a blockage

Hello. This is definitely not normal. Look in the receiver where you put the little coffee or tea cups. Perhaps someone using this machine is putting loose coffee in it. If that is not the problem, return your new Keurig and get another one. Regards, Joe
