Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.
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.

Expresso is too large


Nancy, this setting is controlled by the settings menu. You reach that by right arrowing through the different beverages/menu selections until you select "Settings".
  • In settings, scroll to "program the amount"
  • place a cup under the spout
  • select the beverage you want to program, espresso in this case
  • select start
  • select okay when the amount of water has been used
  • the machine will remember this setting for future espressos
  • the same menu structure allows you to control the amount of coffee ground, as well as the amounts for other beverages

Should be a button that gives you the option to select cup size. The owners manual will explain this.

My mr.coffee keurig model VBMC KG5 single cup coffee maker will not run a whole cup during cycle


The Keurig machine operates by pumping air into the glass boiler to drive the hot water through your coffee cartridge. When you have put a new cartridge into the dispenser, you select a size of cup. When you press the go button, you should hear the machine pump water into the boiler to the requested cup size (test by selecting large size to hear the pumping work). Next the machine operates an air pump to force the specific amount of hot water through the cartridge and make the cup of coffee. The problem encountered with these machine is that a small amount of water can drip internally onto the air pump and it will either not operate or work intermittantly. There is a great 'how to fix' video on utube concerning the Keurig-taking apart and fixing.
Honestly, I don't know whether this is your problem, but I do know this happened to a machine I had. You should hear the tiny air pump working when the cup of coffee should be brewing. You can laboriously take apart and replace, and given the price of these units it may be practicle to do the repair. Watch video on utube--its like three or four parts and very instructive. Sorry I don't have the link.

I am interested in purchasing this 6 cup brew station, but all pics I see use travel mugs. Can it be used with regular 10 -12 oz ceramic mugs for home use? How about 6 oz cups that match Corelle...


How does the coffee get into the cup? If it brews directly into the cup then the amount can be controlled by how much water you put into the maker. If it is a 6 cup then it must hold the coffee in a reservoir. Do you have to push and hold a button to dispense the coffee or do you push and wait for it to fill your cup? If it is the latter then it will need to know how large or small the cup size is. Is there a setting for that? If it is a push and hold method then you control the coffee flow so size is up to you. As far as it being a travel mug or ceramic mug as long as the mug will fit in the maker and sit securely under the nozzle then it shouldn't matter what kind of mug it is.

Have you descaled the brewer? The internal tank builds up mineral deposits from the water and that causes the short cupping you are describing. You should be descaling about once every 3 months or so. The instructions are in your manual.

There is probably a disclaimer in the user guide, as there are in many coffeemaker owner's manuals, to the effect that the coffee dispensed to the cup or the carafe will always be slightly less in quantity than the amount of water added or desired due to absorption by the grounds. This is not a malfunction, however. The only real solution is to brew the next size up.

Keurig coffee maker dispenses only part of a cup (about 5 ounces) after brewng one cup. Running a second clear cup (w/o K-cup) shows coffee grounds in cup of clear water. the maker will then brew a full cup of coffee. It appears that the top pin is too long and goes into the coffee after it punches through the top of the K-cup. Some of the gorunds appear to get stuck in the top pin.
