My cuisinart kcup coffee maker is filling the cup slow and not completely full. I cleaned with white vinegar several weeks ago . Do you have a suggestion


Doesn't brew a full cup.
Every once in a while an air bubble may get trapped in the water path. Lift off the reservoir, then put it back into place.
Turn off and unplug the brewer for 30 seconds or more. When you plug the brewer back in, be sure to turn the power back on.
The exit needle may be clogged (refer to "Cleaning & Maintenance" page 18).
Clean the K-CupĀ® holder brewing chamber (refer to "Cleaning & Maintenance"
page 18).
Make sure the water reservoir is properly in place, and perform a Rinse cycle.
De-scale the Brewer (refer to page 20).
If you have repeated the de-scale procedure two times and it is still only brewing a
partial cup, contact Customer Service at 1-800-726-0190.

Tip

De-Scale Keurig coffee units


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

The water comes out the top of the manuel filter so not all the hot water goes through the holder. the coffee is loosely put in the filter


Try running vinegar through the Keurig to clean and de-scale it. You should use white vinegar, run it through using several cups until there is no vinegar left, then use clean water to brew plain hot water until you can no longer smell vinegar. This will help de-scale the Keurig and potentially remove any plugged bits of coffee that may remain.
