First make sure your water reservoir is empty. There is a black disk inside the tank. This moves up and down. You will need to put your hand inside and hold the disk up. This will stimulate like the water level is "Full." Then continue on as if you were to brew a normal cup of coffee. Obviously without putting a k cup inside. It will pour all the water from the inner tank out. May need to do twice to ensure all the water is gone. Hopes this helps.

According to the manufacturer, you cannot empty the water inside. You can only empty the external reservoir. Sorry.

I just talked to the Keurig machine technical support. They said the internal reservoir can not be drained and that the amount of water that exists inside it will eventually evaporate. Tech support says: As long as you drain the attachable reservoir tank, you should be okay.

-I would try to do a cup of hot water and then immediately after dispensing, turn off the machine before it can draw in reserve water

-Make sure you wait at least 30 minutes for the water to cool down inside the machine, else you could get burned from the drained water

-And, unplug the machine before proceeding

The Original YouTube Poster says to:
1) Open the K-cup dispenser
2) Turn the Keurig machine upside down at an angle so that the water comes out of the nozzle, where the K-cup sits
3) Softly jostle the machine until the water starts to trickle out

How do I empty the water from the main reservoir?

  • Turn off the Keurig coffee maker, and unplug the power cord. Allow the unit to cool for 30 minutes before emptying the water. This gives the water inside the hot water tank an opportunity to cool, helping to prevent accidental scalding when emptying.
  • Pull the lid off the top of the water reservoir. Lift the water reservoir straight up and to the right of the coffee maker. Pour out any remaining water in the reservoir into the sink.
  • Turn the small thumb screw on the back of the Keurig coffee maker counterclockwise with your fingers, and pull off the rear access panel. If the screw is too tight to turn with your fingers, use a flat-head screwdriver to turn the screw. Once you remove the access panel, a tube with a plug on the end is visible. Pull the tube out of the plastic clip holder.
  • Place a large pitcher behind the coffee maker. Hold the end of the tube over the pitcher, and pull the plug out of the tube. Allow the water to drain into the pitcher. If necessary, maneuver the coffee maker to the edge of the counter, and hold the pitcher alongside the counter with the top at counter level.
  • Push the plug back into the end of the tube once no more water drains from the hot water tank. Empty the pitcher of water into the sink, and push the tube back into the plastic clip holder. Position the back access panel onto the coffee maker and secure with the thumb screw knob.

    We have model # BKC800XL - it give us a message about "descale" not sure what that means and how to correct

    Just like any coffee or espresso maker, descaling is a process that needs to be done periodically. If your location has hard water, you may need to descale more often than elsewhere, but it's nothing to worry about. It's just a chemical process that occurs as the result of mineral deposits from the water collecting on the elements inside the coffee maker. I'm sure that coffee manufacturers will sell you tablets for descaling, but I've always just used undiluted white vinegar as the reactant. To do this, I recommend: 1. Empty all of the water from the reservoir. 2. Fill with undiluted white vinegar. 3. For this type of coffee maker, brew as many cups as it takes to empty the reservoir, being sure to dump each cup in the sink as it finishes. 4. Once you've run through all of the vinegar from the reservoir, refill with water and run a few cycles to rinse. (You may want to leave the water to soak for a while to give the residual vinegar further time to clean off the minerals.) 5. Fill again with water and rinse. 6. Once you've emptied the reservoir a second time with the water, your machine should be adequately descaled and ready to brew coffee again!

    Cant find my manual and I dont recall what descaling means. It is stuck on this and wont do anything. Please advise

    According to the owner's manual, you sould empty the water resevoir. Fill the water resevoir with white vinegar (it says 48 oz). Place a ceramic (not paper) cup in the drip tray and run a travel mug cycle with no k-cup in the machine. Throw the vinegar out. Repeat this process until the resevoir is empty. Be sure to open and close the lid so the cup sizes flashes each time. let the brewer sit for 4 hours while still on (the vinegar's still inside). Rinse out the resevoir, fill it with water and run the cycles through until the resevoir is empty again. If there is any residual taste. repeat the rinse. If it still say descale when you're done, the book says to repeat the process.

    You must first empty the water reservoir. There is a black disk inside the tank. This disk moves up and down. Place your hand inside the tank and hold the disk up. This will stimulate the tank being "full" of water. Then continue on as if you were brewing a cup of coffee. This will brew the remaining water left in your inner tank. May need to do this twice to ensure all the water is gone. Hope this was helpful.

    How to drain coffeemaker

    Empty the water reservoir and put back on the side of the coffee maker. Put your hand in the reservoir and slide the disc that monitors the water level back toward the top and and hold in that position,the machine will think there is water. Then put a cup under the head and select a cup. The water will come out. You must hold the disc up inside the reservoir to continue to get the water out.

    No manual with Bunn NHBX coffee maker.

    before plugging in place your empty filter basket in the coffee maker and place a pot under it. Slowly pour in two pots of water using the pour pitcher. Now you can plug it in. it'll take 15 min to heat up first time . when you brew your first pot leave your water level a little short,because the water will expand (only the first time)
