Hello,

Most likely you need to de-scale, but you might want to try plugging the hole with bubble gum and see if that solves your problem in the short term.

You can de-scale with a 50/50 solution of water and white vinegar. RINSE MANY TIMES WITH CLEAR WATER AFTERWARD.

I suggest that you use a VERY well chewed piece of non-mint flavored gum, hope you're friendly with each other - otherwise just run water through it a few times.

Why is there more water in drip tray than coffee in cup?


Leak...... so... roast your own organic coffee (one cup 8 oz beans) in a 2qt pan 4" tall &6" wide with cool plastic handles not metal(dedicated pan due to it will turn black with use Farberware is good)with copper bottom and good lid. (shake pan on near high heat and look for dark brown color med to city roast) shake and look ...shake and look.... shake hard (hold the lid on tight!)so the beans flip up to the top of lid and really fall back down into the bottom all mixed so to cook evenly. It takes about 12 minutes start with lower 1/2 heat until green beans are beige color, then turn up heat to near highest flame. Some add a little butter or cocoanut oil in coffee cup. see on youtube and pour over filter 190 degree water. Get a V shaped funnel with handle that fits your cup & with holes in it to place the filter & fill with med grind coffee, 4 TBS & 1.5 cups water.
Coffee Shop coffee taste like bitter dishwater.

Cleaning & descaling your Keurig brewer is an important step to enjoying the best tasting coffee and keeping your brewer in good shape for years.

How often you need to do it depends heavily on how often you use your brewer and how "hard" your local water is ("hard" meaning how many minerals are in it). I try to do this 3-4 times a year.
Comment Recommended For You 3 640x960.jpg

Open the top of your brewer and remove the K-cup holder. CAUTION: There's are two sharp needles in there. Be careful.
Comment 4 640x960.jpg

The cup holder is dishwasher safe. You can toss it in the dishwasher if you want. Otherwise a good rinse under warm running water is usually good. There's a sharp needle in here, so be careful.
Comment 5 640x960.jpg

Turn the cup holder over and ensure these holes at the bottom are free of any obstruction.
Comment 6 640x960.jpg

The drip-tray is removable. Give it a good clean either by hand or in the dishwasher.
Comment 7 640x960.jpg

The upper portion of the K-cup holder also has a needle. This needle has three holes in it. Insert a straightened paper clip into each hole to remove any buildup or obstructions.
1 Comment 8 640x960.jpg

Here's a close up: There's nothing you can break in here, so use some force and get that paperclip a good inch in and wiggle it around vigorously. Repeat this for the two other holes in the needle.
1 Comment 9 640x960.jpg

Use a damp, soft cloth to wipe away any coffee grinds or water stains in and around the cup holder area, and down the front of the brewer.
Comment 10 640x960.jpg

Be careful of that needle inside when wiping it down.
Comment 11 640x960.jpg

Put the K-cup holder back in the chamber. Make sure it's the right way around by aligning the arrows at the top of the holder.
Comment 12 640x960.jpg

Empty the water in the brewer's external reservoir.
2 Comments 13 640x960.jpg

Refill the reservoir with undulated white vinegar and replace on your brewer.
1 Comment 14 640x960.jpg

Run four large cup brew cycles. DO NOT use a K-cup, just run it empty . Dispose of the hot vinegar after each. This pushes the vinegar through the inside heating tank as well as all the valves inside.
2 Comments 15 640x960.jpg

Leave your brewer to stand, powered on for four hours. This allows the vinegar time to break down any build up in the tubes and valves inside the brewer.
1 Comment 16 640x960.jpg

Discard any leftover vinegar then refill the reservoir with water only.
Comment 17 640x960.jpg

Run large cup cycles until "Add Water" is displayed on your brewer's screen. This washes out all traces of vinegar from the insides of the system.
Comment 18

If you notice a vinegar-like smell or taste to the water coming out of your brewer, refill the reservoir with water a second time and run hot water cycles until empty.

Congratulations!! Your Keurig brewer is now clean and your ready to enjoy full cups of delicious coffee for months to come!

Step 6: Now let the Brewer stand for 4 hours while still on.
Step 7: Place a ceramic mug on the Drip Tray and run 4 brew cycles, pouring the contents of the mug into the sink after each cycle.

It is not allowing the water to go through when it says "ready" and I push the button. I have a new coffee in there and the water is filled but it drips slowly out as if it is having trouble (usually a...


Hey, We had a similar problem. Water just dribbles out if at all. Here is a trick that worked for us. In the K-Cup holder there is a tube that punctures the bottom of the KCup. They give you instructions on keeping that clean. But they dont tell you there is an equally important puncture tube at the top. THis tube usually has 3 or so holes or openings that flow water after the cup is punctured on top. I took a paper clip and pushed in (not too far) on these holes only to find coffee had lodged up there and blocked the hole. I ran a couple times after with just hot water and it works like new.

Does not pour the proper cup size. Have the default set to the largest size. Sometimes it pours the proper size, other times it pours a smaller size. Also, the sequence of action seems to be off. Sometimes...


the Keurig is supposed to keep at least 12 OZ of hot watet at the ready...
when you press brew, the pump pushes water into the bottom of the heater... the hot water comes out the top into a clear plastic holder with probes sensing the height of the water... when the proper height is reached, the motors change state... other valves open up and that pur-measured water goes from the plastic holder tank to the arm touching the K-Cup...
Try running vinegar thru the unit and maybe the sensor probes are scaled... otherwise... you may have a intermittent connection and would beed to reseat the low voltage wires from that water height container...
involved taking the unit apart... :(
try the vinegar first.
Seems like internal cables need reseating.....
I posted how to open it... do not do unless its out of warranty... and you have a few hours of time to disassemble it...

Coffee grounds in cup w/ Keurig 60


I have the answer because it is happening to me now. Moreso with the Timmothy's brand K cups. I did a little forensics on a good brew, and then on two slow with grounds in the final brewed coffee.
The inner filter is placed in the k cup and it is not glued to the top rim. The bag then just sits on the bottom of the k cup as it is passed with the hot pressurized water.
The good cups are glued to the top rim and there is no problem.
To investigate....remove the foil top carefully after the cup cools. Rinse out the grounds, and the filter bag should still be glued to the rim. if you've got a dribbler and one that passes the grounds into the cup...you will find the filter bag had fallen loose from the rim. Manufacturer defect...You bet!!!
I had 8 from a box of Timmothys 25 count pass grounds. Green mountain coffee may once in a while pass grounds, but very rare and maybe three times in the 4,000 k-cups we've used.

Very slow water output


Open door of machine & take Brew head out. You will see a cylinder shaped part which is black with an orange washer half-way down it. Look underneath this cylinder and you will see a steel disk,(which may look black) this is the filtre. Now look above the cylinder and you will see a turn knob, turn anti-clockwise untill the disk comes free. Hold the disk up to the light and you will see the minute perferations which are all clogged with coffee grounds, give this a thorough washing under running hot water ,( use the brush provided with your machine to push the grounds through. You will also need to blow through these holes very hard and often untill you can see that they are cleared. This should be done after about every 15 cups made. I got this info. from the Gaggia engineer and it works!! Good luck.
