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

7. Empty reservoir and fill with undiluted distilled white vinegar. Repeatedly run brewing cycle until Add Water light comes on.

8. Make sure Auto-OFF is NOT set and let last cycle of vinegar remain inside machine for 4 hours.

9. Refill reservoir with fresh water and repeatedly run brewing cycle until the water is clear and odorless.

10. Set Auto-OFF, if preferred.

It's the Mini. Just dribbing and not filling more than 1/3 of the cup


It might be time to clean your Keurig. Fill the water tank with vinegar and run through 5-6 glasses after that it should start brewing regular sized cups again.

A. Prepare
Step 1: Make sure you have 48 ounces of white vinegar on hand. You will also need an empty sink and a ceramic mug (Do not use a paper cup.)
Step 2: Empty the water in the water reservoir
B. Fill and Clean
Step 1: Pour the vinegar into the water reservoir and fill it to the top edge of the clear viewing area.
Step 2: Place a ceramic cup in the drip tray and run a brew cycle. DO NOT USE A K-CUP...just press the large cup button. Pour the contents of the cup into the sink.
Step 3: Repeat the brew process until the water reservoir is empty, pouring the contents of the cup into the sink after each cycle. Remember to open and close the lid between each cycle.
Step 4: Now fill the reservoir with fresh water and let the brewer stand for 4-hours while it is still on.
C. Rinse
Step 1: Ensure the water reservoir is filled with fresh water.

Step 2: Place a ceramic cup on the drip tray and run a regular brew cycle. Once again, DO NOT USE A K-CUP...Pour the contents of the cup into the sink.

Step 3: Repeat the brew process until the water reservoir is empty.

Step 4: You may need to perform additional brew cycles if you notice any residual taste.

The descale light keeps blinking, what should I do?


The 'Descale' light that turns on indicates that it is time to de-scale the machine.
Scale - or mineral deposits- form from the water you run through your Keurig coffee machine. If not cleaned regularly, the buildup can clog the lines in your machine and ruin the heating element. The manufacturer recommends you descale Keurig coffee makers once every six months for normal water conditions and once every three months if you live in an area with hard water.
You will need :
  • Keurig coffee maker
  • 48 oz. white distilled vinegar
  • Water
  • Large ceramic cup
  • Sink


Instructions :
  • 1 Unplug the coffee machine and remove the cup.
  • 2 Turn the coffee machine upside down over the sink in order to fully drain it of water. Be careful of the plug and avoid getting it wet.
  • 3 Pour undiluted white vinegar into the reservoir up to the top edge of the viewing window.
  • 4 Place a ceramic cup under the machine, plug it in and press "Brew" for a large cup. Pour the cups of vinegar into the sink and repeat the process until the reservoir is empty.
  • 5 Remove the final cup of vinegar and empty it. Fill the coffee maker with clean water and allow it to sit for four hours, remaining on.
  • Good luck ;)

    Have the same problem as many others: Only makes 1/2 cup of coffee. Have cleaned out the lines, run lemon juice through and still only 1/2 cup


    You still have some clogging of the line. Try a more aggressive approach. Run a cup of CLR through the unit a couple of times. Depending upon the hardness of your water, you may have to repeat this process to dislodge and disolve the mineral deposits in the line. You may also have to change to distilled or bottled water. Regular cleaning (about every 30 cups) should take care of the problem.
    Let me know if you have any problems or questions. Thanks.

    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!

    I have had a Keurig for about a year. It has worked great and I am very happy with it, and use it several times a day. However recently it has started acting strange. When it enters the heating phase, the...


    Sorry to read about your issue.
    If you have been doing the descale, your unit is defective.

    Keurig does not make repair's or carries replacement parts for their units. you can contact Keurig at 1-866-901-2739 or Keurig.com
    You do have a 1 year warranty, and if you are out of warranty. They will give a discount on a new unit.

    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.

    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.
    Then fill with fresh water to the top. let that tank of water run thru. towards the end taste the water.
    If you taste vinegar..use more clean water, until the taste is ok.

    I tried to help you. Please help me and Vote/Rate this response. Thanks and good luck

    I have a platinum Keurig coffee maker. I descale


    Dear Rschles2,
    I too own a Keurig Platinim.. I haven't a solution for your problem but I can tell you that your description of it is right on... I have had the same problem. Every month or two, my Keurig will decide I need a large cup rather than the size I chose. I've found no way to solve it... even unplugging the machine doesn't help. In the end, I remove my Kcup, and let the machine process a large cup of water. After that, it runs perfectly.... well, until the next time the Ghost appears.
