Keurig brewers are great little machines but from time to time they all need a little TLC. The brewers have countless components that must all work together to deliver the perfect cup. Most common problems with these machines are caused by calcium/lime buildup. If you've tried the manufacture's suggested vinegar descalation methods to no avail, give this a try. PRESSURIZED WATER FLUSH: - Unplug machine, remove water reservoir & set aside. - locate water inlet opening (this is the hole in which the reservoir drains) - using your garden hose, place nozzle flush with water inlet opening, direct water stream into this opening while slowly increasing water flow. - BE CAREFUL NOT TO GET ELECTRONICS OF THE MACHINE WET - water should begin pouring from beverage dispenser & overflow/reservoir pipe. - continue flushing machine for 30 seconds. You may notice chalky white particles in the water flowing from machine (this stuff is the cause of your problems). Your machine should be as good as new now! Repeat process is problems persist. You may also use compressed air to clean the machine and other commercial descalation products.

Hello,

what you will have to do to solve this problem is that you will have to do self cleaning on the coffee maker

however, (not the bathroom one) is a handy item to use to clean coffee residue off the inside of a glass coffee carafe.

  • Does your pot have hard to reach areas? Use a wooden chopstick with a paper towel to get in there.
  • You can put ice cubes and a little water(enough so you can swirl it around) in pot and swirl them around, for harder stains put some table salt in pot and swirl it around for a few minutes and then rinse.
  • Put a glass marble in the water chamber to attract mineral deposits from hard water. Wash it once a week.
  • For tough stains, scrub the pot using a paper towel or clean (not soapy) dish towel. Rinse thoroughly.
  • To clean just the pot, do what many restaurants do. Put about two cups of ice, 1/4 cup of rock or table salt, and 1/4 cup of lemon juice (bottled or fresh is fine) and swirl around the pot. Measurements are not that important, just guesstimate. Be sure that the pot is cold before you try this, or you may break the glass pot.
  • Clean a brand new coffee pot prior to using it for the first time.
  • Never use the coffee pot to pour water into the reservoir. This will transfer oils and impurities from the pot, and eventually give the coffee a nasty taste. Instead, use a pitcher that is reserved for water only.
  • To keep the inside area around basket, filter, lid area clean (from coffee ground spatter) simply place a SECOND filter over the top of the grounds in the FIRST filter. Push second filter down so that spout will clear top of second filter (on many makes of coffee makers) as lid is closed. This keeps interior in pristine condition and doesn't take much time or expense.
Thanks for visiting our site good luck.

Why cant I get a full cup of coffee


Brewing a Partial Cup
If the brewer is not brewing the full amount selected, it may be caused by the following:
  • The exit needle is clogged by coffee grounds or cocoa mix. Please refer to the K-Cup Holder cleaning instructions.
  • The brewer needs to be descaled. Please refer to the descaling instructions.
  • The removable water reservoir was removed during brewing. Place the water reservoir back onto the brewer and perform a cleansing brew without a K-Cup pack.

Need a descaler


instractions are from manual HD7810/00

Use the correct descaling agent
Only citric acid-based descalers are suitable for descaling the SENSEO
machine. This
type of descaler descales the machine without damaging it. For the correct amount,
see under 'Descaling procedure' below. Each descaling mixture can be used only once.
After use, the descaling mixture is no longer active.
We advise you to use the special SENSEO
Descaler (HD7012/HD7011/HD7006).
Read the instructions on the package of the descaling agent.
Never use a descaling agent based on mineral acids such as sulphuric acid,
hydrochloric acid, sulphamic acid and acetic acid (e.g. vinegar). These descaling
agents may damage your SENSEO

coffee machine.
Descaling procedure
1 Mix 50 grams of citric acid with 1 litre of water in a measuring jug. Stir until
the powder is completely dissolved.
2 Fill the water reservoir up to the MAX indication with the descaler mixture.
Then put the water reservoir back into the coffee machine. (Fig. 3)
Note: Not all SENSEO
machine types have a water reservoir with a capacity of
1 litre. If you have a SENSEO

machine with a smaller water reservoir, repeat steps
2 to 6 with the remainder of the mixture without filling the water reservoir up to
the MAX indication.
3 Press on/off button 3. (Fig. 10)
The machine is ready for use when the indicator light lights up continuously.
4 Place the 1-cup holder h with a used coffee pod in it in the coffee machine.
Close the lid and make sure it is properly locked.
Note: Always put a used coffee pod in the pod holder when you descale the
machine. This pod serves as a 'filter' to prevent the sieve or hole in the pod holder
from getting clogged with scale residue.
5 Put a bowl with a capacity of at least 1500ml under the spout to collect the
descaling mixture (Fig. 8).
6 Press the 2-cup button hhand let the machine operate. Repeat this until
the water reservoir is empty. (Fig. 25)
Never interrupt the descaling process!
7 Repeat steps 1 to 6. Replace the used pod with another used pod to filter out
the scale residue.
Note: To descale properly, you have to use 2 litres of descaling mixture.
Never descale the SENSEO
coffee machine with the lid open. Make sure the lid is
properly locked.
8 Rinse the water reservoir with tap water. Fill the water reservoir up to the
MAX indication with tap water and repeat steps 3 to 6.
Note: Do not refill the water reservoir with used hot water or the used descaling
mixture.
9 Fill the water reservoir with fresh tap water up to the MAX indication again
and repeat steps 3 to 6 once more.
Note: Always rinse the machine by letting it empty two full water reservoirs.
10 Remove the used pad and clean the pod holder after descaling to prevent the
sieve or hole in the centre from getting clogged.

Kureig heats but won't brew


The exit needle could be clogged located( inside bottom of the holder assembly). Remove K-cup assembly and detach funnel. Insert a paper clip or simiilar tool into the exit needle to loosen the clog and push it out. REMEMBER, the needles are very sharp, proceed with caution!!
You may also need to Descale your Keurig...I do this every other month due to high mineral content in my potable water. Change out resevoir filter and clear exit needles as part of Descaling. Disable "auto shut off" feature, remove reservoir filter and do not use a kcup prior to proceeding. Place 48ounces of white vinegar into reservoir, press brew, discarding each mug of water down kitchen drain and repeat until "Add Water". Let brewer stand for four hours in "On" . Rinse after 4 hours by filling water reservoir with fresh water and press brew until ADD WATER is indicated.
I run two full fresh water cycles before actually using the Keurig for beverages I will consume.
Hope this helps

The machine will not pump water to make cup of coffee. Cleaned needle area, powered on and off, nothing. The descale light has never come on in 3 years we have had machine. Can't even attempt to descale...


Step 1: Lift up the water reservoir and drop it back into place. There is a magnet that has to be in the right position and putting the reservoir back into place causes it to go back where it should be. This method has worked for me.
Step 3: It could be that your Keurig's water line is clogged. To flush out debris, run water through your brewer a few times without a K-Cup. I'd recommend this step if your Keurig is brewing some coffee, just not a full cup.
Step 4: Try turning the power on and off or try unplugging (for a long stretch if you can). When you turn the Keurig back on, be sure to give it plenty of warm-up time. This has also worked for me.
Step 5: It may be time to descale. Most models will give you a message when it's time to have the mineral deposits cleaned. Go here for instructions
Step 6: Turn off your brewer and use an unfolded paperclip to clean out the holes in the top needle.
Step 7: If you've given your Keurig a good spanking and it still won't behave, contact Keurig (866-901-BREW) for help.

Is the 'add water' button on the keurig devised to add extra water to the already filled cup? I like extra water, a weaker coffee, is there a way to add extra water to the cup?


Hello, this ad feature is telling that you need to ad some water to your reservoir. If you are not getting a full cup of java then here is some things to look at that would help this problem.

Here is a list of things you can do to try and resolve the problem.

Descale the coffee machine....
White vinegar is recommended, but it seems like lemon juice works just as well or even better. Also there are many different commercially sold products to descale coffee machines. One of these is a product called CLR which seems to do a great job. Some people have even used their denture cleaner to descale the coffee brewer. Dissolve a couple of tablets in water and place in the reservoir... then run the solution through the coffee machine to clean it.

Another common problem is that foil from the K-cup lid will get stuck in the needle that punctures the top of the K-cup. Like wise the bottom needle can also get coffee grounds or other debris stuck inside it. Scale from the descale procedure can also be a problem. To get the needles clean the best thing to use is a paper clip. Do not use a toothpick as that can break off inside and cause greater problems. Bend the paper clip so that approximately 1" is straight. Then insert the paper clip into the needle and wiggle to clear any debris. On some brewers the K-cup holder can also be removed, the bottom will twist off to reveal a nozzle that also has small holes that will plug up. Cleaning these holes may be the ticket to a great cup of coffee again.

Check to see if you have water running back into the reservoir when you are brewing a cup of coffee. If you have water bypassing, then you have a problem, there should be no water returning to the reservoir if the brewer is working properly. To stop this from happening there are a few things that you can do.

. You can hold your finger over the white tube in the top of the reservoir to place more
pressure on the water to flow through the needle and expel the debris from the tubing.

Take a can of compressed air like you would use to clean your computer and blow air through the tube(s) in the reservoir and also the needle(s) to clear dirt debris and water from the machine. This process may make a mess so be sure to have the machine is a place where the mess can be cleaned up easily. Some have even used a large tire type air compressor out of desperation, and report that it does work. I would use great care with this method and shoot the air in very short bursts.

      Often the pump gets air in it and does not prime correctly. It will then only pump a little water. To fix this you may need to get rough with the machine. Slamming the reservoir onto the machine will sometimes work, The shake rattle and roll method also will have the desired affect sometimes. Some have turn the machine upside down over the sink, have slapped the sides of the machine, or even shake the machine to get the air out of the lines.
      Once you do get the pump to prime properly, you can keep the pump from getting more air by making sure to fill the reservoir before it gets empty by using a pitcher to fill the tank instead of removing it and filling it.


With some K-cups, the bottom needle does not pierce the bottom of the cup if you simply place the K-cup into the holder and then close the top. Extra effort may be needed to make sure that the K-cup gets seated properly so that the water can flow through the K-cup easily. If you have water still in the K-cup when you remove it after brewing, you are having this problem.


Thank You, Please rate my free help. Appreciate it.

How do I properly clean the coffee maker and then get the light to go off?


Hi,

  1. Allow the unit to cool completely and unplug it before cleaning. use a sponge dampened with soapy water to clean the outside of the coffeemaker, then dry carefully.
  2. Open the reservoir cover and the filter compartment. Remove the coffee grinder lid, the grinder, the filter basket, its cover and the support.
  3. Wash the pieces along with the measure, the carafe and its lid in warm, soapy water, rinse thoroghly and dry. Then replace them in the unit.
  4. All these pieces are also dishwasher safe.
  5. Never pour water inte the unit when the grinder is not in place.
  6. Wipe the part under the filter basket and the heater plate with a damp cloth.
  7. Do not wipe the inside of the reservoir as this may leave fabric or paper residue.
  8. Do not use abrasive sponges or cleaning agents as these could damage the finish.
  9. NEVER IMMERSE THE BASE OF THE UNIT IN WATER OR ANY OTHER LIQUID.
The reservoir cover may also be removed to facilitate cleaning.

Descaling.
Over time and through normal use, lime deposits will build up.
Scale can interfere with the fine mechanics and give the coffee a harsh, bitter taste. For reason, your coffeemaker should be descaled regularly to guarantee good coffee. The frequency of descaling depends on how hard the water is and how frequently you use the coffeemaker.
  • To descale, dilute 30cl white vinegar in 30cl water, pour the mixture into the reservoir and begin a brew cycle.
  • Then run two full cycles by filling the reservoir with water (but no coffee) to rinse the system.
Hope this will help you.
