Question about Keurig Platinum B70 Coffee Maker

1 Answer

My Keurig has not been filling up the cup all the way lately. Last night the descaling light came on. We put white vinegar in it, ran it, and then water. Now it is not working at all. The machine is less than one year old. Any ideas? I have the Platinum B70.

How to descale a Keurig


Fill it with a 50/50 mix of distilled white vinegar and water. Run it normally, but without using any full K-cups (it's OK to use an empty one if it refuses to dispense water without a K-cup in place). Catch all the vinegar/water that comes out, save it, and cycle it all back through one more time before discarding it. Last, repeat once with clear fresh water before making coffee again.

The descale light keeps blinking, what should I do?


The 'Descale' light that turns on indicates that it is time to de-scale the machine.
Scale - or mineral deposits- form from the water you run through your Keurig coffee machine. If not cleaned regularly, the buildup can clog the lines in your machine and ruin the heating element. The manufacturer recommends you descale Keurig coffee makers once every six months for normal water conditions and once every three months if you live in an area with hard water.
You will need :
  • Keurig coffee maker
  • 48 oz. white distilled vinegar
  • Water
  • Large ceramic cup
  • Sink


Instructions :
  • 1 Unplug the coffee machine and remove the cup.
  • 2 Turn the coffee machine upside down over the sink in order to fully drain it of water. Be careful of the plug and avoid getting it wet.
  • 3 Pour undiluted white vinegar into the reservoir up to the top edge of the viewing window.
  • 4 Place a ceramic cup under the machine, plug it in and press "Brew" for a large cup. Pour the cups of vinegar into the sink and repeat the process until the reservoir is empty.
  • 5 Remove the final cup of vinegar and empty it. Fill the coffee maker with clean water and allow it to sit for four hours, remaining on.
  • Good luck ;)

    My keurig coffee maker is flashing the words DE SCALE. What does that mean and how do I fix it?


    "Scale" is deposits of minerals, etc. normally found in water. Boiling a container of water (in a pot, or coffee maker in this case), leaves small amounts or "deposits" of these minerals on and near the actual heat source. If not removed, they can slow brewing time and more importantly, adversely affect the taste of coffee.

    Descaling should be done at regular intervals to prevent this from happening. Your machine lets you know when to perform the descaling task. There are a number of products sold in your supermarket that will do this for you - but one of the least expensive; and just as effective - is to use white vinegar. Here's how to do it:

    1) Drain your Keurig coffee machine over a sink.
    2) Fill the machine with undiluted white vinegar.
    3) Run the brew process at least four times, pouring the cups of vinegar back into the coffee maker.
    4) Optionally, let your Keurig coffee maker sit for a few hours, then run the brew cycles again. Pour the vinegar into the sink and drain any remaining vinegar.
    5) Fill your coffee maker with fresh water. Run multiple brew cycles with fresh water each time to thoroughly rinse the machine before returning to normal use.

    That's it!

    I know this will help & good luck. Please rate my reply - thanks!

    Keurig B70 won't stop cycling water. it just keeps draining the resevoir. Water is cold, not heated.

    Not enough water making it from holding tank to dispensing cup


    your machine is "Short Cupping"

    It needs to be descaled. Even though the descale light might not be on yet, the descale light only comes on when it is in SERIOUS need of a descaling. You should descale once every 3 months.

    Fill reservoir with distilled white vinegar and leave the machine on for 4 hours (make sure to turn off the auto off option).

    after 4 hours, run the vinegar through the machine until the reservoir is empty. Refill with water and repeat twice. you will notice a difference right when you start running vinegar through.

    Descaling light on


    Per Pages 9 and 10 of Keurig Model B40 Use and Care Guide,
    1) turn off the "Auto Off "feature
    2) fill empty water reservoir with 48 ozs of undiluted white vinegar.
    3. Place ceramic cup on the drip tray and run a brew cycle. Do not use a K-cup!
    4. Press the large mug Button
    - let Keurig coffee maker fill mug with vinegar & empty in sink.
    5. Repeat brew process until water reservoir of vinegar is empty. (remember to open and close lid between each cycle so large mug Button will flash.
    6. Rinse the water reservoir thoroughly and fill with fresh water.
    7. FINAL STEP RINSE CYCLE
    a) place a ceramic cup on the drip tray
    b) run regular brew cycles WITHOUT using a K-cup.
    c) pour rinse water into sink each time.
    d) repeat brew process until water reservoir is empty.
    d) perform additional rinse cycles if you notice any residual vinegar taste.
    e) if the red "De-scale" light remains illuminated after completing descale and rinse cycles, repeat the descaling procedure above.
    Otherwise - you're good to go!
