Hi, I think I can help you fix this problem. First off, check the needles that puncture the cups and get them cleaned off with a paperclip or a toothpick. Try to clean them with a small brush or a even a toothbrush with a little vinegar. Clean the top and bottom and be careful because they're sharp. Then, run a full resevoir of white vinegar through your machine. Then, let it sit with "ADD WATER" for a few hours. Lastly, rinse with clear water, a full resevoir so you get rid of the vinegar smell and taste.

    I've done this more than once and although i do get a full cup of coffee -- it is very slow, unlike it when it was new. My logic tells me that since it comes out fine when there's no k-cup in it, perhaps it is the pump wearing out -- like it is no longer powerful enough to pump the water through when there is an obstruction (the coffee). Does that make sense or am I totally ignorant and don't know what I'm talking about?

    I've seen this at work, and now I'm seeing it at home. Same issue: works when I take a kcup out, but putting a kcup in clogs up the works. My logic agrees with yours: it's the pump. That seems like the one piece that could really go wrong.

How to Descale your Keurig Coffee Brewer

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!

Machine will not brew all of a sudden was working fine for months, what happened?

you probably need to descale it. Run white vinegar thru it for three cycles, then leave the last cycle in overnight with machine on. In the morning run three cyclkes of plain water thru it and it should work again

This is the time, you need to Descale the machine. The simple procedure is :-

Unfortunately, in spite of the best-laid plans of mice and men, espresso machines often get clogged by scale, deposits of minerals from hard water. Scale can cause serious damage if untreated. If your espresso machine's water flow has decreased a lot, it's probably because of scale. Fortunately, there is an easy and inexpensive way to descale your espresso machine.

  1. Obtain some citric acid. You can either order this online or find it in the kosher foods section of the supermarket (usually marketed as "sour salt"). Acid solutions dissolve scale, which is made of calcium carbonate. There are special solutions marketed specifically for descaling, but citric acid works just as well and is much cheaper.
  2. Prepare the descaling solution by mixing citric acid with water (I use two tablespoons of acid and a quart of water).
  3. Put the descaling solution in the water tank, turn on the machine, and run water through the steam wand until the cup is filled, to expose the parts to the solution. Turn off the machine, and leave it for 20 minutes so that the solution has time to dissolve scale.
  4. After 20 minutes, run more water
  5. Run solution through the machine every 20 minutes, until the water tank is empty.
  6. Fill the water tank with plain water, and run water through the machine until output water no longer tastes sour. This is important, because excess citric acid does not make coffee taste good.
Let me know, if need further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Coffee maker makes cream curdle

Run two or three reservoirs full of plain water through the machine to rinse out the descaler, which is acidic.

Acid curdles milk.
