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.

My Keurig only brews a part cup


Most likely you need to change the filter and descale it as well.

I use a CleanCup once a month:
https://www.amazon.com/CleanCup-Single-Machine-Cleaning-Capsules/dp/B00E0QAS34/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1480095410&sr=8-1&keywords=keurig+cleaner+cup

I change the filter once every 3 months:

And I descale it every time I change the filter using this:
http://www.keurig.com/Accessories/Keurig%C2%AE-Descaling-Solution/p/Keurig-Descaling-Solution

Otherwise, the tubing is going to get clogged up in your machine and produce smaller and smaller cups of coffee, not to mention, when you keep your machine clean, your coffee will always taste its best!

Hope this helps!

De Scaling instructions


Also, if you have an in sink garbage disposal, don't waste the hot vinegar.  Pour it into the disposal, turning the unit on as you pour, off when you're done.  The vinegar is mildly acidic and will disinfect the disposal unit.
