De scale kruig coffe maker

Empty the reservoir of water and fill it with four (4) cups of white vinegar. Run the Keurig WITHOUT a K-Cup until the vinegar has been run through. Rinse out the reservoir with hot water, dry it, then fill with cold water normally used to make coffee. Run the maker 3 times, or until vinegar taste disappears.

Good luck!

My coffee maker has the words de scale in the corner or something like that. Also all the lights are not coming on except the one for the most amount of coffee and it just trickles down to not even half a...

Sorry to read about your issue.

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

What does de-scale mean?

To de-scale anything in relation to water means to remove the mineral scale buildup on the walls or where ever. That's the usually white chalky stuff that you might see around nozzles etc. Follow yu manuals instructions to de-scale. Usually involving white vinegar, or possibly a product like CLR for removing minerals and rust stains. I AM NOT SAYING TO USE CLR IN YOUR MACHINE, just indicating an example of a product that manages mineral scale. Read the manual to do it correctly.
