Question about Keurig B70 Coffee Maker

2 Answers

A few days after descaling my Keurig (because the machine asked me to) using the white vinegar method, I am getting the descale message again. Do I really need to descale once again?

Instead of 4 hours (descaling as instructed in the manual), soak it longer 16-24 hours if possible. The only way that worked for me. I tried the paperclip trick. I also used the hose (water pressure) to the reservoir input (tank removed) to blast any clog. Nothing worked except the longer vinegar soaking.

How to descale keurig elite 40 coffee maker with vinigar


Unfortunately you will need to use vinegar. The acetic acid in vinegar is strong enough to clean most brewing machines.

Use distilled white vinegar.

No water coming out of keurig


You need to descale it. Mine usually just stops working like that without the descale light coming on until after I start the descale procedure (go figure). This is from the Keurig website. Don't bother starting until after you get a bottle of white vinegar...in fact, get TWO bottles because you will probably need it again in the future.

Although this is in "Problem with Vacuums," I found it while searching for a solution to my steam cleaner vacuum problem. You must be talking about a Keurig or Breville-Keurig coffee maker. Tap water, especially chemically softened tap water, contains minerals that require periodic descaling, as often as every two months if you make only a couple of cups a day.

Filling the tank with white vinegar and making multiple large mugs without a Keurig coffee cup in the holder will remove most scale. There are products that claim to do better than white vinegar if this does not work. Amazon sells a couple of brands in its Keurig section.

It will take several tank fulls of clean water to rid the machine of the vinegar or commercial cleaning solution. Use distilled water for this. Then switch to good bottled water without a heavy mineral load.

the best and cheapest descaler is vinegar. Let it sit in the machine for a couple of hours and then run it through a few times. Works wonderfully!

We have a Keurig ourselves and were stumped when we first saw that descale message on the brewer.

There are a number of ways to descale a brewer, the least expensive being to run some vinegar through the machine a couple of times, and then run cold water through a few more times to rinse it.

However, simply trying to clear the lines often doesn't work. And as you will see from the many comments below, by far the most reliable way to get your Keurig brewer working again is the "Slap and Burp" method.

Here is how you do it.

First, unplug the brewer and remove both the water reservoir and drip tray.

Next, hold the brewer upside down over the sink and slap the base a few times. And I mean really slap it.

Now put everything back together and try brewing again. Most of the time this works with a couple of good slaps. If not, try it again.

And don't worry, there are no laws against giving your Keurig a good slapping!

Good luck!

How to descale


Use 1/2 cup white vinegar in 1 quart water. No need to let it sit. After descaling, remember to run at least 3 cycles with clean water to remove any vinegar.

How do I get the de scale light to go off at start up?


Hi
The descale light will only go off if you complete a descale on the machine. You will have to go to your owners manual and read how to descale your machine.

Here is a PDF page for Keurig machines if you don't have your manual.

They say to use white vinegar but I recommend Commercial descaler like from Starbucks or you can get it from online vendors. Vinegar leaves a taste unless you get it all out, after a couple of rinsings.
