The water pump is probably starving for water:1. Remove the clear plastic reservoir and set it aside. 2. Look into the hole that the reservoir sits on. You will see a fine plastic screen that keeps debris from getting to the pump. 3. Clean off the screen. You may have to disassemble the bottom of the machine and remove it to do it right. 4. Put everything back together and the short-cup problem will be history.

1. It sometimes doesn't give me a full cup as per the setting. 2. It was hardly working and I descaled with vinegar - it worked while I cycled the vinegar through but then quit working entirely


If your 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 may need to be de-scaled. Please refer to the de-scaling 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.

First try to make a descale maybe repeat it the next day.

I lost my manual. How do I de-scale? Does this not allow you to brew a cup until it has been de-scaled?


From http://www.keurig.com/customer-service/brewer-registration-and-support/~/media/Files/Keurig%20Brewer%20Manuals/De-scaling_instructions.ashx
To begin, you will need the following:
  • 48 ounces of undiluted white vinegar
  • Large ceramic mug (do not use a paper cup)
  • Access to an empty sink

PREPARE Step 1: Empty the water in the Water Reservoir. Step 2: Disable "Auto Off" features.
FILL AND CLEAN Step 1: Pour approximately 48 ounces of the vinegar into the Water Reservoir. Step 2: Place a large mug on the Drip Tray Plate and run a brew cycle. DO NOT USE A K-CUP, just press the BREW Button. Pour the contents of the large mug into the sink. Step 3: Repeat the brew process without a K-Cup until "ADD WATER" is indicated. Step 4: Now let the Brewer stand for at least 4 hours while still on. Step 5: Discard any residual vinegar and rinse the Water Reservoir thoroughly.
RINSE Step 1: Ensure the Water Reservoir is filled with fresh water. Step 2: Place a large mug on the Drip Tray Plate and water brew cycle. Pour the contents of the large mug into the sink. Step 3: Repeat brew process until "ADD WATER" is indicated. Step 4: You may need to perform additional water brew cycles if you notice any residual taste. NOTE: If "DE-SCALE" is still displayed after completing the procedure, repeat the de-scaling procedure above.

Hi, Don, W/D here.

There's not a lot of troubleshooting advise out there for Keurigs, but here are a few things to try:

Try brewing a cup, without the K-cup in the holder. As the brewing cycle starts, hold your finger over the return line to the reservoir (lift the lid to the reservoir; it's in the top, back, and it's white). Careful, there could be hot water there. Plug the hole off with a gloved finger and this will run the cycle longer, and may unplug it. De-scaling may have moved some of the accrued sediment into the dispensing lines.
If you haven't tried it, try cleaning the upper and lower tips. Take an ordinary paper clip and straighten it into an "L" with the short side about 1" long. Pass this end up into the upper piercing needle (careful-sharp!) and down into the lower needle. Sometimes, it takes several tries to clear the needles.
If you try the needle clearing, then try plugging off the by pass. Repeat as necessary.


Hope that this helps you, --W/D--

Sorry to read about your issue. plus you may have a bad k kups

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.
